E-40 ft. T-Pain, B.O.B., & Kid Ink – Red Cup.


500_1407109126_bvizcfg_54

Its been a little while since E-40 has earned himself a big mainstream radio hit. In fact, the rapper hasn’t appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 since “U And Dat” hit the top 15 back 2006.  Now, it appears, 40 is reaching for another smash. Recruiting former “U And Dat” collaborator T-Pain as well as Kid Ink and B.o.B., the Bay Area legend seamlessly transitions his signature West Coast drawl into a song that wouldn’t sound out of place next to Ink’s own “Main Chick” at the top of the hip-hop charts. The instrumental comes courtesy of Kristo of Drop City Yacht Club fame.  “Red Cup” is the first single off of 40’s upcoming four-album-set Sharp On All 4 Corners (1, 2, 3 & 4). If released before the year is out, the rapper will have released 17 albums in 5 years, undoubtedly some kind of world record.  Take a listen to the newest track to take over the coming radio airwaves below.

B.O.B. vs. Tyler The Creator?


Although I don’t have a personal opinion on the matter, I know that not everyone is amused by the antics of Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator.  B.o.B took aim at the upstart on Friday (March 25) with a fiery dis track titled “No Future,” a response to a line the California rapper issued on his breakout “Yonkers.”

“What you think of Hayley Williams?/ F— her, Wolf Haley robbing ’em,” “I’ll crash that f—ing airplane that that f—-t n—a B.o.B is in/ And stab Bruno Mars in his goddamn esophagus.”

The line is characteristic of Tyler and his crew’s shocking rhymes; the collective are, in part, inspired by Eminem and works like his Relapse album with its slew of serial-killer references.  The “Airplanes” star, however, isn’t a fan.

“If I was you I would be a little more cautious,” Bobby Ray raps on “No Future.” “I’m way too high for you to look at/ The future ain’t looking promising for these rookies/ This is target practice but I don’t even pull the f—ing trigger anymore, ’cause it’s just a waste of bullets/ Come and get this pu—, wipe them off the floor/ I’m guessing they was hoping for some different results/ I’m guessing they was guessing ’cause they wasn’t really sure/ But f— it, I guess I’mma have to let these n—-s know.  Keep f—ing with me, you ain’t gon have no future,”

Tyler responded via Twitter. Perhaps taking the high road after driving too close to the edge, the 20-year-old wrote that he didn’t think “No Future” was a dis track. He even gave B.o.B props on the rhyme.  “Whoa,” he wrote in his first message. “I don’t think the ‘No Future’ song is even a diss. But I’ve never heard him spit like that. Took me by surprise, cus it’s tight.”  A second message took a swipe at producer Alex Da Kid over “Airplanes” and “Love the Way You Lie” sounding too similar.

Eminem ft. B.O.B. – Things Get Worse.

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again, I’m happen to be a tremendous Eminem fan, and have been since he first came out.  I’m well aware there was a period when he started to lose the “Slim Shady” that made him an undeniable force in the rap game, and I remember what that music used to sound like.  I’m super excited that he’s back in the game, and I was juiced when I heard about his new track with B.O.B., however when the song started, it just reminded me of when Em was losing his Shady so to speak… This lasted for about 13 seconds until Eminem blasted off on a lyrical tangent about Angelina J. giving head, and how Brat Pitt doesn’t can’t do anything about it.  After that, the song was all uphill from there, and truly reminded me of the ultra-witty rhyme-style Em had back in the day.  That in combination with B.O.B. gracing the track with his presence, this one is a sure thing for the repeat bin in my iPhone.

The All City Chess Club, which Lupe describes as being more of a movement than a group, consists of himself, Asher Roth, B.o.B, The Cool Kids, Charles Hamilton, Blu, Wale, Diggy, J. Cole, and Pharrell.  “It’s kinda this new vanguard,” Lupe says. “The kids who wouldn’t necessarily be the basketball team they would probably be the Chess Club if we was in high school. And I was like ‘Yo, we all from different cities. We the All City Chess Club.’”  Lupe went on to explain the dynamics of the All City Chess Club and its members.  “I just wanted it to be the collective of those dudes and put a name on it,” said Lupe. “Like they already kinda put us all in the same box. They kinda put us in the same family of MC’s whether it be the hipster rappers or the nerd rappers…Since they putting us in a box, might as well own the box. And write our name on the box and paint it the color we want it.”

The first single from the entire conglomerate is Lupe’s remix to I’m Beamin.  Click the pic to download.
