About a week and a bit before I move to the states...here's the visuals getting me through the process including the BET Cyphers that actually mattered! BET has some terrible video embedding associated with their videos so you can see the links down below for the appropriate ones!
Now I know the joint isn't old. But I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Cardi B for making Billboard chart history. The 2nd ever female rapper to be #1 on the Billboard Charts. She shares the accolade with the legendary Lauryn Hill. Ratchetness for the win!
I've got a pretty loaded couple of weeks. Between being 1 of 2 best men for one of my best friend's wedding in a week's time to flying to NY on Sunday for an interview, to other job opportunities and thesis corrections and askhaighfiohgorogO;DF;dljf;dsl...I'm a bit tapped for time so these visuals will hopefully get you right. Enjoy.
I'm not one to ignore some of the idiocy and atrocities that seem to occur more often than not in today's society. I'm not one to down play the legitimate pain felt by large groups of people affected by many of the negativity that's been visible to us in the media. My heart goes out to those affected and I truly hope that we, as humans, can overcome our differences and difficulties and learn to co-exist.
Solid projects from unreal artists. Enjoy but remember to support your favorite artists.
Have any of you seen Game of Thrones? That last 5 minutes of the team going out past Eastwatch to take on the military head-on...DEAD ASS THAT SHIT WAS SO GODDAMN LIT! Honestly it was like the 92 Dream Team being announced...I've re-watched that scene about a hundred times...maaaaaaaaan. Anyways, I guess we got some unreal visuals for you to hold you up until the group goes ice slicing with them steel swords.
When Dre decides to drop something...you hold on to your butts. Clearly this song was released alongside the documentary series The Defiant Ones (which you should all watch). But this shit baaaaaaaaangs!
When this beat hits you, its cold like the first day of winter. Dr. Dre is an absolute genius. You should DEFINITELY go check his and Jimmy Iovine's HBO documentary series - The Defiant Ones. I'm serious...absolutely unreal documentary.
Proud Canadian right here. I'll put my maple leaf on my chest and get cracking. So as I get hype, you enjoy the drops! Full of solid joints from a lot of MCs including an unheard Mobb Deep track released by Premo in light of the recent loss of Prodigy. Rest in power my dude.
The rap world is saddened with the sudden loss of Prodigy, one half of the Infamous Mobb Deep. I can not state how big of a fan I was of Prodigy, His rhyme patterns and his methodology is something that I admired as I considered him with my Top 10...if not Top 5 MCs of all time. Words can not explain his footprint on hip hop. Period. QBs finest...
I mean the odds are incredibly low for them to do it...but its happened before. History will be made one way or another. So let's enjoy some of the hottest visuals and new joints to drop over the last week!
Big Boi. I can't wait for your new project. Visuals on point. Beat banging. Collection of some solid visuals here from Yelawolf to Mike WiLL Made It to and EXCELLENT mash of 40 years of hip hop. 1000% worth the watch!
It's one track. A single track. But I'll finna take it. Supposedly Kevin Durant's standout performance in the first two games of the NBA finals was so inspirational, it got Jay Elec to get out from the diabolical cave of erudite to drop this one joint...on tidal. I imagine you can find it on the internets immediately cause no one is sleeping on this. Now if he just dropped a project of sorts...
Been a bit preoccupied for the last few weeks. Between emergency room drama, bachelor parties, interviews and preparation for my PhD examination...I've had a few things on my hands. But let the vibes continue y'all. XXXtentacion, Snoop Dogg, Juicy J, Bryson Tiller and T-Pain and Wayne messed about and finally dropped their mixtape. Enjoy but remember to support your favorite artists!
This came across my internet searches and I'm surprised it hasn't gone viral. Typically we see on the metro city streets street drummers doing their thing. Imagine doing it only to be joined by arguably one of the best musicians of our time, Questlove, and then host your own cypher with Black Thought and Common...arguably Top 5 in most hip hop circles. For the culture. Do your thing patna.
But when you find an excuse to enjoy some of that good-good that got you laughing like Wiz Khalifa, I ain't knocking that hustle. Enjoy the drops...some insane drops from the likes of Nas, Taylor Bennett, Curren$y, Juelz Santana and more!
Usually when track listings come out on an album, the first thing that gets people's attention is who is featuring on an artist's album. But then you see some UNREAL posse cuts that are nothing BUT legendary. So I thought I send some posse cut love to y'all, and especially my homey Dominic out killing it in the UK. What y'all think? Did I miss anything? Let me know.
Joey Bada$$, Tech N9ne, Homeboy Sandman and ScienZe. Some LEGIT HEAT! BAH GAWD! Enjoy but remember to support your favorite artists!
P.S. - It was announced that Kendrick will drop an album next week with the pre-order going live on iTunes today. But I honestly think he did that and sent a copy of his album to everyone who he be targeting...getting homeys sweating in the streets...
The visual experience is MIND BLASTING! I will be adding a few visuals in the coming days that are expected to drop to this particular post. Including Lil Dicky's newest video for Pillow Talk (which is on record for being the most expensive music video ever created).
Smoke DZA is a wrestling super fan. Him and Wale are the legit Rap Tag Team and could have a solid run. On a yearly basis during Wrestlemania weekend, he drops his wrestling theme mixtape. So enjoy Ringside 5.
I'm a massive fan of the entire Heart series by Kendrick Lamar. The emotion he displays in Part 3 resonated me on a whole. All that hard work to shine and finally get the appreciation for him and the entire Black Hippy/TDE crew. And now the game has got a bit silent. A lot of rappers dropping soft projects and getting portrayed as heavy bars. But leave it to the Rap Westbrook to put everyone on check. April 7th y'all.
Solid work on the productions and Khalid harmonizing at the beginning!
An excuse to drink heavy. Yaaaay cirrhosis to the liver! Everyone wants that...so while I stay sober, let me run your music playlists for the weekend. Enjoy but remember to support your favorite artists! But especially those Droog and Rick Ross Albums. They legit fire.
