I think I like Future better when he slows things down. This is off-brand screaming and almost rapping. The good news is that the video has a few key cinematic turns, and keeps you watching along while he chirps. Capers and girl gangs and everything.
Freddie Gibbs is the new Tupac of the stage. He keeps it all the way real, only performs shirtless and basically dares anyone to challenge his sincerity 100 per cent of the time. If that ain’t Pac-esque, y’all listened to too much Ja Rule in the early 2000s. This song goes wild.
Sometimes wish there were separate Rap Awards for things like this…radio freestyling. Slaughterhouse does it probably better than anyone else who’s ever done it as a group. Maybe Wu Tang is in the picture if you edit them down to their giants. These guys are a class unto themselves though. They don’t need to make songs.
Audio Dope…this is Spitta Andretti over a Harry Fraud production reminding us that Jet Life is the best life. Such a vivid depiction over a simple soundscape makes it the most alluring lifestyle music in rap. Lay back with a cold one…or a lit one, and enjoy.
King Kendrick graces a sold-out show in UK with his presence. This live version of “Cartoons and Cereal” has terrific crowd response for a non-album cut. No Gunplay on this version but the MC of the Year holds it down just fine without the assist.
Real killas schmooze with art dealers, fam. Talkin’ Killa Cam. The Harlemites give Miss Info a walking tour of Poppington Gallery in New York. This kind of culture watching is enough to make a hater so maaaaaad.
It’s safe to say the Ja Rule wants to put that last ten years or so behind him. Since releasing his single “Fresh Out Da Pen,” Rule has been doing the media blitz, getting back on the horse, so to speak. Good for him. Now the job of introducing an entire generation to his music and winning back some of the old fans.
Stalley premieres his video for “Cup Inside A Cup” off the Honest Cowboy EP with Belly-style visuals. This subtle beat knocks and the lyrics don’t hurt it too much. MMG’s 6th Man might have something on his hands.
it may be that his “daddy was a poet” as he explains on “Burgundy”, an anxious and self-immolating song from Doris, or that his way with phrasing seems unique for a 19-year-old. (or an any-year-old for that matter.) but lately it seems like the media has taken to using earl sweatshirt quotes as pieces of journalism in themselves. (more…)
These guys are working together well on this track and fit it with an impressive visual. Endless metaphors about elevation and flight make me sure there’s more good music on the way from Underachievers. Whenever they touch down.
Danny Brown at Rock the Bells talks leaking his own album, Gangsta Gibbs bodyin’ him on Old, touring with Action Bronson and creepy hologram performances. After the jump. (more…)
Update: Kanye West Premieres “New Slaves” By Projecting Visuals On 66 Buildings Across The Globe, Reveals Album Title & More
The only way to describe Kanye West’s taste in music and fashion is ‘decadent.’ Yeezy has gone above-and-beyond to premiere “New Slaves,” the first leak from his forthcoming album, by preparing a set of visuals to accompany the song as it’s projected on 66 buildings across the globe this weekend. (more…)
Those in the know realize that Law & Order: SVU is the most superior brand of crime drama on television today. I mean they have Ice T playing a wise cracking cop — this Ice T — and all of the stories are ‘ripped from the headlines.’ Well, SVU made a bold move last night by airing an episode based on Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna.
