New Music: Fashawn – “100 Bars”

 |  August 29, 2015


Fashawn has got to be one of the most heavily slept on rappers in the game. After dropping a stellar and criminally underrated album earlier this year in The Ecology, Fashawn returns with “100 Bars.” “100 Bars” is a five minute freestyle from Fashawn — finding the rapper going off on Jay Z’s 1996 classic “Coming of Age” from Jigga’s watershed debut album, Reasonable Doubt. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise for seasoned rap fans who’ve watched and listened to Fashawn over the years — not to mention his killer freestyle on Showoff Radio. Fashawn will also be embarking upon a European tour, which kicks off tonight! Check the dates of Fashawn’s tour and “100 Bars” after the jump.

CeeLo Green is an OG to this rap ish. Many might not be familiar with CeeLo’s work outside of, I don’t know, judging television shows and being the guy who sang “Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley. But when he’s not busy with the aforementioned, CeeLo is a member of legendary Atlanta rap group Goodie Mob. (If you’re new, you should check out Soul Food, the group’s excellent debut album from 1995.) But CeeLo is looking to recharge his solo battery with “Sign of the Times,” a socially-conscious track that reminds us of those good ol’ Goodie days. Check out CeeLo’s “Sign of the Times” after the jump.

Mos Def (or Yasiin Bey) has been a lot of noise lately. After dropping a stellar cut in “Basquiat Ghostwriter,” Bey returns with “Sensei on the Block.” “Sensei on the Block” is produced by Ski Beatz and features Bey going in with serious rhymes. This is truly a track meant for his day one fans, and it’s a pleasant surprise! Check out Mos Def’s (Yasiin Bey’s) new track “Sensei on the Block” after the jump.

The Future stimulus is real. Uncle Murda is teaming up with Fewtch for “Right Now” which is also produced by Metro Boomin — one of rap’s biggest and (pun intended) booming producers in the game. If the name “Uncle Murda” doesn’t scream “Listen to this track” then Fewtch’s appearance here will. Listen to “Right Now” after the jump.

Bronx’s French Montana recruits some noteworthy NYC heavyweights in Harlem’s A$AP Rocky and Queens’ N.OR.E. for a remix to his summer hit “Off the Rip.” Listen to the remix of the track after the jump. RIP Chinx!

Detroit’s Apollo Brown links up with Coney Island’s Your Old Droog for “Not That Guy” off of Brown’s forthcoming Grandeur, which arrives September 25th. Frankly the pairing of Brown and Droog is A1 and Droog goes in over Brown’s lush soulful production. Personally, I’d like to hear more from these two. Listen to Apollo Brown’s “Not That Guy” after the jump.

Just what the world needed: A terrible remix of an equally terrible song. Wiz Khalifa, who was joined by the great Iggy Azalea on the OG version of “Go Hard or Go Home,” is back with a few guests. For the remix of “Go Hard or Go Home” Wiz recruits big names like Trey Songz, French Montana and Ty Dolla $ign, and honestly the end result is a mess. Check out the remix to “Go Hard or Go Home” (or part 2?) after the jump. If you dare.

Roc Nation’s premiere young’n is back with some more tunes. After sharing a string of cuts in “Heir to the Throne,” “Heat It Up,” and “I Been” (all these arrive after “U Mad” and “No Chill”) the Chicago upstart is back with “All That Shines,” which like the other tracks, may or may not be appearing on his forthcoming debut album, Traffic. In the meantime check out “All That Shines” from Vic Mensa after the jump.

Chinx’ debut album, Welcome to JFK, has been released. Sadly, he couldn’t be here to see it. Chinx, the Queens rapper and Coke Boyz affiliate, was tragically shot and killed this past May in his Jamaica, Queens. But, life goes on and we have his music here to keep us comfortable. And Rick Ross and Meet Sims have Chinx’ back on the official remix of “On Your Body,” which appears on the aforementioned Welcome to JFK. Listen to the remix with Rozay and Sims after the jump.

I was worried for a second there. Waka Flocka Flame — the once unassuming weed carrer (or shooter) in Gucci Mane’s 1017 Brick Squad camp — released his debut album Flockaveli five years ago and has been dropping turds since. He was supposed to come out with the second installment, like, ten times already. But, sadly, it’s constantly pushed back. (Maybe with good reason?) Everything that was going to be on Flockaveli 2 was scrapped and now we’re getting this new track called “Workin'” which sounds like classic Waka. Basically that means I am happily satisfied. The end. Listen to “Workin'” by Waka Flocka after the jump.
