The reason I think Trick Trick possibly threatened Eminem and Royce to be on this track is inconsequential. But let’s just recognize that they don’t belong on a twerking song with him, that their verses sound like they were applied without knowing what the beat was and that Trick Trick only fits with these lyrical giants geographically and not in terms of talent. Anyway, twerk that, pop that after the jump.
As much as no one wants this to be Metta World Peace making a rap song saying he’s the best, this is Metta World Peace making a rap song saying he’s the best. Listen to track after the jump.
An unusual trio of rappers join drummer Travis Barker for this single. Yelawolf has a weird verse too.
I dream of a day when I can post only hip hop songs that join Bieber/Cyrus with Future/Rozay. There’s no other way.
Unmistakable, unapologetic and unashamed might describe this trio in order. Ladies, you might wanna leave this one off the iPod.
Cormega and Rae for a collab that’s remarkable in most eras.

Joey Bad offers this bonus cut “My Yout” from his soon-to-drop Summer Knights EP. It sounds like he’s had Distant Relatives and The Best Of Stephen Marley playing on repeat in the headphones. Not bad and certainly a step out of the boom-bap area where he got cozy for a while. Nice to hear the Pro Era leader going for uptempo rhythms.
Thought of a fantasy world where Lauryn and Nicki Minaj didn’t believe opposite values and got on a song. Aneurysm.
J. Cole may have taken a brief hiatus from the public eye after the success of 2011′s The Sideline Story, but as of late he’s proved that he never really left.
