Black Hippy - Introducing Ab-Soul (Part 4/4) (Album Review: Ab-Soul - Control System)

This is a four part Spotlight I'm doing on four amazing artists who have just got me going crazy for the last year. All of these artists have been dropping singles and videos for a little bit and they had my attention then, but when I was finally able to put their albums on spin...my entire body started convulsing in amazement.

A group straight out of LA by the name of Black Hippy consists of four up and coming artists that will definitely have you on blast in the near future: Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Kendrick Lamar.
But there is one Black Hippy who gets put to the side. On the eve of the biggest drop of the year, Kendrick Lamar's Good Kid M.A.A.D. City, it be best to remind the world that Ab-Soul ain't eating...

Now Jay Rock has the gangster rap, ScHoolboy has the weed smoke, Kendrick Lamar has the story telling and conscious rap...where does Ab-Soul fall? The cult following rapper. Ab-soul is known for his extremely abstract flow with abstract lines that can be quite descriptive and strange and at times quite vivid and profound. This guy murders every track he's on, every mic he's on and every stage he will touch. Not afraid to say what's on his mind. Not afraid to take his obvious disorder (Steven-Johnson Syndrome)and make it his signature: The Black Lip Bastard.  Ab-Soul is a problem...

One of the Best Things in Hip Hop out of Canada, That Isn't Exactly Hip Hop - Colin Munroe (Unsung Heroes)

Who is Colin Munroe?  Colin Munroe, born in North Gower, Ontario, Canada and now residing in Toronto, is a singer, songwriter who has successfully mixed Indie Rock with Hip Hop.  Graduating from University of Toronto, he collaborated with some top cats within the Toronto scene (Swollen Members, Moka Only, etc.).  He didn't make his big break until he remixed Kanye West's song, "Flashing Lights" which has over 1 million views on YouTube.  It was here that Kanye heard it and took the chorus from the remix, and put it on future renditions of the song.  After this big break...that's when things got poppin'

Gucci Mane - Truth (Video) [Young Jeezy Diss]

Ever since the BET Hip Hop Awards, Jeezy and Gucci Mane have been going on the radios sending shots at each other. Gucci Mane told one station that he was at T.I.'s party where Jeezy was there and they didn't do anything cause they are afraid. Jeezy went on the radio and said straight up Gucci is retarded. This ultimately lead to this diss track, which has the visual treatment. Gucci is also trolling on Twitter and starting up a bit of a Beef War in ATL calling out Slick Pulla and T.I. Alley Boy and the guys at DTE are joining in with Gucci and 1017 Bricksquad and are calling them out...interesting to see whether this gets serious or it fizzles out.
