Came Thru/Easily (feat. Mac Miller & Ab-Soul) from Chuck Inglish on Myspace. Chuck Inglish is now a solo artist but probably still a Cool Kid, by most accounts. This blazing visual features Ab-Soul and Mac Miller in a drug-influenced trio of wacky rap. The former Cool Kid and producer impresario might have something on his hands if he can keep corralling rappers to fit his drop-heavy beats.
With less than a week to go until the release of Suffering From Success, Khaled has generous enough to leak a good portion of the album, which is akin to the dude that stands on the side of the highway dressed in a giant sandwich costume and hands out coupons for free Subway. However, this cut is actually good. (more…)
French Montana with a baby tiger in each hand? Now I can start my day! Off Excuse My French.
Alas, the full TDE cypher from the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards. Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, & Isaiah Rashad join K.Dot to rip the “Shook Ones” instrumental to shreds. (more…)
Detroit is releasing amazing hip-hop music. Crown Nation, Quelle Chris, Black Milk, Guilty Simpson, Danny Brown and a whole roster of gritty, rocky, sooty rhymers are giving “homegrown” a place in rap music again. This socially-relevant and wholly irreverent tape by Denmark Vessey titled Don’t Drink The Kool Aid will be in the rotation regularly through the fall (courtesy DJ House Shoes and Dirty Science). Do yourself a favor, and play.
Rocky and Kathy Griffin talk about banging each other, gangbanging, fantasy threesomes, and buckets of sizzurp for nine minutes. Did I mention I love the internet?
The universe’s softest rap beef has officially emerged. (more…)
From their Step Brothers 2 project, Starlito and Don Trip premiere “Paper, Rock, Scissors” as if to say ‘this is mere child’s play.’ Take that, rappers!
Oh you thought this was a joke? Nahhhhh. Flex premieres the heavily-speculated, lowly anticipated shemix to French’s street banger. Or the Kidz Bop version of “Ain’t Worried About Nothin.” Miley is the absolute, unequivocal worst. (more…)
This is Eminem carving his face on rap’s Mt. Olympus. This is Eminem striking down mortals with the hand of a lyrical super-being. This is Eminem on a quirky beat, twerking flows and generally proving that rhythm has no race and no confines. He still comes down to bless us occasionally. Off MMLP2.
Good, clean, inspirational hip-hop music. This is the kind of song borne from the struggles of a group almost disbanded due to life-threatening illnesses, real spit. Green Street returns with “New Beginnings,” now available on iTunes for download.
Heart just skipped three beats. Hipster Girls get at me.
I don’t know that there can be an heir to Nate Dogg, but Devin the Dude is close. He has much more fun with his relationship songs, as seen here. We all know one we “probably should have” filled in the blank with.
Black Milk might be the most complete producer/rapper in hip-hop. Still, he remains chronically slept-on. This album, No Poison No Paradise, will probably cement him as a critical favorite. Stream at the link.
