Every so often, I get bored and decide to make a basic mashup, just to play in my car, or toy around with on my phone when I’m bored. I don’t typically release generic “someone’s lyrics over someone else’s beat” tracks, but when a good friend of mine heard a random mix I finished about a month ago, he wouldn’t stop bugging me till I dropped it. So for your listening pleasure, I’ve assembled a basic mashup of Young Gunz ‘Can’t Stop Won’t Stop’ and ‘Slight Work’ from Wale ft. Big Sean. You can download it here, or just take a listen below.
Mack Maine is one of the most instrumental members of YMCMB, and has been for a while. Not necessarily because of his lyrical prowess, or the numbers of records he’s sold, but because he provides a strong business backbone to the label. This doesn’t mean however he’s not capable of putting out a surprising track here and there. I’ve never particularly been a huge Mack Maine fan, but when I heard the song ‘Windows Half Way Down’, I was impressed. Check the method below.
In an interview with XXL, Tyga discussed how the collaboration with Nas came about and what we can expect from his song featuring Nicki Minaj:
“Yeah man, I sent Nas a song like six months ago and I never heard back from him but out of the blue, he called me like, ‘Yo, you doing your thing. I want to be a part of what you doing, I like everything you doing. Keep working hard. I sent him the ‘Kings and Queens’ that night and he did it the next day. I was like, that shit is crazy. Nas always talks that shit. The song, man, [his bars] added the cherry on top. It’s a real classic song. People are gonna like it. I wanna think of a dope video. The storyline of the song, the whole King and Queens [theme], it’s motivational.”
On ‘Muthafucka Up’ featuring Nicki Minaj:
“The song for Nicki is called ‘Muthafucka Up”. I don’t know what they gonna call it on the radio. Maybe they might call it ‘Up.’ That one is one of them going in type songs. Like how Wayne had ‘A Milli.’ One of those Young Money records that people love. We got a crazy visual for that one, too. I don’t wanna give it away. I’ve been doing a lot of features for everyone.”
There’s some speculation around the Bay as to why rappers here haven’t had the international success that artists from other parts of the States have. Not being consistent, a lack of sonic diversity, and under-qualified management are all theories, but luckily Jay Ant suffers from NONE of those pitfalls. It hasn’t been more than 4 days, and Jay Ant has already dropped another track to the web. (The other being ‘On My Mind’ with Iamsu ft. Mike Dash E.) With a gambit of talents, and all the right elements to support a talented flow, I’m sure you’ll be hearing much more from Jay Ant very soon. To watch the video for ‘On My Mind’, check the method below.
There are always collaborations in the Hip Hop world people wouldn’t expect, that have some of the best results (Game and Tyler the Creator for instance). I personally never thought I’d ever see Eminem and Jeezy on the same track, but lo and behold, that day has come. Click the pic above to check out the collaboration between Young Jeezy, Freddy Gibbs, and Slim Shady.
Earlier this week, I put up another new Ludacris music video, in which the post surrounding it was focused on the “beef” between Luda and Big Sean. This video however is quite the opposite. Luda tag teams with Waka Flacka to deliver what I personally think is one of the most under-rated songs of 2011. I’ve had a hold on this track for about 4 months now, and just waiting for it to get big on the radio, but no dice. I’m hoping the video will help boost the track’s popularity. Check the method.
Weather many folks are familiar with “The Mix Up” or not, it remains one of my favorite collections of music ever. (And I SWEAR it’s not just because I made it). The “album” consists of just under a dozen tracks that are comprised of main stream rap lyrics blended with more classic/underground hip hop beats and sprinkled with tons of samples from popular culture. The premise and subject matter of each song is different and each song has it’s own particular flavor, but my favorite track to this day is “Hott Sauce”. I have a bit of a fascination/addiction to the little physical act described in the song, and listening to it makes me laugh every single time. With lyrics from Lil Wayne, GOV, Cam’ron, Three 6 Mafia and Lil Kim, “Hott Sauce” is not one to play in front of your parents, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy it none the less. Click the pic to listen.
It’s rare for me to post on a song that isn’t deeply embedded in my musical consciousness much less one I haven’t listened to thoroughly a couple of times, but the continuation of Lupe Fiasco’s Thanksgiving mixtape release tradition (inaugurated with the November 2009 release of ‘Enemy of the State: A Love Story’) is a special exception. For one, it’s Lupe Fiasco. In the aftermath of the career-boosting, reputation-destabilising ‘Lasers’ – whose ragtag compilation of autotuned mishits and austere political commentary has been blamed variously on an overambitious Lupe and an overcontrolling Atlantic Records – it’s good to know that he hasn’t taken its critical panning to heart and is keen to continue innovating and putting out new material. For two, the significance of this mixtape is readily apparent glancing down the track listing. Alongside ‘End Of The World’ which samples M83 (more on them in a moment), the mixtape (traditionally stacked with tracks featuring vocals layed over others’ original beats) features Justice cuts, SebastiAn tunes and Nero, Glitch Mob and Skrillex originals. Not your average hip-hop mixtape than.
T-Pain grabs a verse from Lil Wayne for this T-Minus produced-track titled “Bang Bang Pow Pow” that will appear on Pain‘s rEVOLVEr album, dropping on December 6th. You can listen and download the T-Wayne collabo above. Click the pic to heck it out.
In the world I occupy, there seems to be much speculation behind Drake’s intentions when recording his sophomore album Take Care. Some say he’s lost his edge, other think he’s being experimental with his art, and there are the few who just think Drizzy has lost the plot. I personally don’t have a dog in that fight. I just appreciate good music no matter what the message was intended to be, but for those of you who might have been wondering the same thing, check out Drake’s interview with Vevo.
Rihanna finally released the title track from her sixth solo album Talk That Talk. The Stargate-produced track features Jay-Z, (the man who signed her to Def Jam Records in 2005), and has surprisingly gotten some mixed reviews so far. Click the pic to take a listen for yourself. ‘Talk That Talk’ goes on sale November 21st.
The Bay Area is saturated in artist changing the mold of Hip Hop in the ways they see fit. I respect artists all over the globe, but the Bay is one of the few places I see changing the style of the area around them instead of simply conforming to it. When I first got here from New Jersey, I was unaware of the Hyphy Movement (that soon died very quickly) but one of the major movers was Clyde Carson. For an artist to switch his style so drastically in such a short amount of time, and do it so well is nothing short of epic, and Clyde Carson’s newest track Knight Call is just that. A mix of Kavinski and pure Hip Hop, this track, and the video he shot for it are game changing for the popular style of the Bay Area. Check the video below.
Here’s some new Cudi for fans to add to their collection. Not much information is given for the track, but many have speculated that the origin of the line “that sh*t cray” to have been birthed through this song, which you can hear in the intro. Check it out, let me know what you think and download it above.
Ludacris has always been an artist I’ve had a lot of respect for, and he doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. His newest release “Can You Buy That” is essentially another bragging rights track about what he has that most don’t. This theme may seem a bit old or monotonous by now, but the beat, and a chorus laced with the sample “mutha f*cka can you buy that?!” has an interesting Kanye West type of feel to it that gives the song a unique edge. His lyrics are sharp as ever, (he even quotes ‘Mortal Kombat’ and ‘Street Fighter’) and weather you like the subject matter or not, this track is a good one. Click the pic above to take a listen.
There are so many artists who cross genres of entertainment and up losing respect from some of their once loyal fans. I’m not sure how much of that has happened to the R&B singer Tyrese, but I feel the opposite way. You simply have to give the man his props for being able to draw an audience to a movie theater (Fast Five and of course Baby Boy), and still keep things rockin’ with songs like ‘Too Easy’ ft. Ludacris, and his newest remix featuring T.I. titled ‘Fireworkz’. Click the pic to take a listen to the song.
Drake’s sophomore album ‘Take Care’ has had quite a few leaks in the few days, one of which caught not only my attention, but the attention of one of my brothers. In an online rant one of my best friend mentioned Drake’s shout out to the Bay Area, and his “trying to adopt the Bay” when Drizzy stated “I’m in the buildin’ and I’m feelin’ myself. Rest in peace to Mac Dre, I’mma do it for the Bay”. Personally I don’t think a shout out or two can be chalked up to more than some girl Drake screwed asking him to shout out her home town of Oakland. However, I’m not originally from the Bay, so I may not see just how deeply Drake’s comment may have offended some. But weather your from the Bay Area or not, click the pic to take a listen to ‘The Motto’, and let me know what you think it and the song as a whole.
Robin Thicke and Lil Wayne may appear to be a fairly random combination to the layman, but these two have teamed up in the past. On Lil Wayne’s 2008 destroyer of an album ‘Tha Carter III’ the song ‘Tie My Hands’ featured a chorus from Thicke, and (in my personal opinion) was one of the best non-singles of the album. Click the pic above to hear another collaboration from the duo titled ‘Pretty Lil Heart’.
The first time I remember seeing Pac Div was on the ‘Great Hangover’ Tour with Asher Roth, and the entire show they put on was praiseworthy. So seeing Asher and the Pac on the same track doesn’t come as a surprise, what may surprise some is why they haven’t done this a million times before. Click either of the pics to take a listen to the lyrical banger ‘Useless’.
I’ve been a T-Pain fan for quite some time, from his music, to his sense of humor, down to his iPhone app, I just appreciate the man’s work. His new album Revolver has been pushed back time and time again, but since singles from the anticipated CD have begun to drop, it’s very clear that Mr. Pender-ass is taking his music in a new direction. Check the video for his latest single featuring Dawn Richard titled ‘Fantasy’.
A grip of blogs posted an unofficial, leaked version of Childish Gambino‘s new track “All The Shine” yesterday. That was not the real shit, however. This is the real shit. Without further ado, please stream below the officially official album version of “All The Shine” as it will be heard on his forthcoming LP Camp, due out 11/15/11. This track (and CG’s entire oeuvre) may prompt you to ask the question “Is Childish Gambino serious?” To which the answer is: As an Emmy award winning comedian yes he’s funny. As an emcee, he’s no joke. Click either pic to download the track.
