Sadly this song could not come at a more unfortunate time for Waka Flocka Flame seeing as he was recently arrested for attempting to board an airplane with a loaded handgun. Waka’s lifestyle choice cost him and as a result he’s sitting in a county jail. But that hasn’t stopped Waka or his management from dropping a new Flock remix of Rich Gang’s hugely successful smash “Lifestyle”. Listen after the jump.
The incarcerated Gucci Mane cannot be stopped, as his team continues to drop new music in his honor. Today we’ve got “Sh*t Wouldn’t Happen” produced by C4. The track is slated to appear on Gucci’s forthcoming Trap God 3 mixtape. Listen after the jump.
Pray to god that Quavo never go solo! One third of the Migos drops a solo track featuring fellow New Atlanta trappers Young Thug and PeeWee Longway. “Trapper Girl” will be on the upcoming Lobby Runners 2 mixtape. Listen after the jump.
T.I.’s working relationship with Pharrell dates back to Tip’s I’m Serious days; for those of you not hip to the game, that’s 2001. The two have remained close and any time T.I.’s got a new album cooking you better believe Pharrell will be there either providing Tip with the hook, the chorus, a verse, or production. Hell, sometimes he’ll gift Tip with all four! And for T.I.’s forthcoming studio album Paperwork the two reunite once again. Pharrell joins Tip for “Paperwork” and it’s a scorcher. Listen after the jump.
The story of Makonnen is quite touching: a weirdo kid out of place in Atlanta knocking on virtually every door possible only to have them all slammed in his face until finally striking a friendship/working relationship with rising local producers Metro Boomin and (later) Sonny Digital. This relationship led to the creation of “Tuesday”, Makonnen’s smash hit. Makonnen, now signed to Drake’s OVO imprint, is keeping busy, and today we are introduced to MikeWiLLMakonnen (Mike WiLL Made It x Makonnen). You may listen to their wistful new track “Wishin’ You Well” after the jump.
Childish Gambino’s DJ Drama hosted Gangsta Grillz mixtape is here. That’s right, you read that correctly: a Childish Gambino Gangsta Grillz mixtape. Hip-hop has really come a looong way from Lil Wayne spitting over the now infamous “Cannon” beat to Gambino. STN MTN finds Donald Glover’s rap alter ego Childish Gambino utilizing the platform as a half mixtape/half EP. For the STN MTN portion of the project Gambino will freestyle over some notable beats including “Move That Dope” and “Southern Hospitality” alongside original material. There’s also a concept at play here, something about money made from the EP keeping Kauai clean? Who truly knows when you’re dealing with Gambino. Stream/download STN MTN after the jump.
In case you’ve been wondering where Ludacris has been he excuses his absence at the beginning of his “Hot N***a” freestyle. And although Luda may seem a tad bit late to the party (Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot N***a” was released as a single in July) he delivers a focused and downright aggressive freestyle. We must say, it’s a welcome addition to all the lousy “Hot N***a” freestyles and remixes we’ve heard so far this year. Luda’s still got it, that’s for sure. Listen after the jump.
Young Thug’s breakout single from late last year “Danny Glover” finally gets the proper visual treatment it rightfully deserves. The track that had the hip-hop world buzzing (see: both Drake and Kanye dancing in the club) receives a hyper-stylized treatment with Thugger and Birdman chilling in a gloomy, Sin City-esque world full of debauchery. After the jump!
Young Thug to the rescue! It’s safe to say if you’re in desperate need for a dope hook or unique verse to set your song over the top then Thugger is your go-to guy. And on DJ Drama’s “Right Back” that very notion rings true, as Thugger Thugger handles hook duties, chorus duties, and has the most memorable verse amongst Young Jeezy and Rich Homie Quan. The Young Thug stimulus package is too strong. Listen after the jump for proof.
