Wanna trip out while listening to a hard rap track? Look no forward than the laser-tastic visuals for Big Boi’s Atlanta anthem entitled “King Sh!t”. Big Boi is joined by fellow A-town kings, TIP & Luda. Which Atlanta king rules this track? My points go to T.I. He freaking kills it.
The biggest surprise is Kito & Reija Lee, EDM imports out of London. The rap game isn’t know for it’s EDM collaborations, but something about this Kito & Reija Lee feels very promising. A fantastic blueprint for future artists.
A track so beast…El-P and Killer Mike made it their tag team. It’s classic hip hop, as you might expect from these hip hop vets. The music video is ‘Tribe’ colorful, but still raw & simple as it should be in animated form. Run The Jewels, son. No delays. Now that’s how you represent ‘Two Chains’.

Really wished ‘Last Train to Paris’ was better. It average. Still dig this track. No matter that is the second time it kicked off our 1st song blurbs. Hello. Good Morning. Will get me on that TIP, Rozay, Diddy vibe as I set up these pretapes. Oscar weekend ahead. Haven’t really assistant much in preps. Should be painless? I hate working award shows in the rain. Adds another layer of drama.
Nonetheless, have a great weekend!

Two of the biggest albums of 2014 go up against each other next week: Rick Ross’ ‘Mastermind’ & Pharrell’s unexpected ‘G I R L’. iTunes got first dibs on both albums that feature an all-star team of artists (Maybach Music Team, The Weeknd, Lil Wayne, Yeezus, Daft Punk, Justin Timberlake, Jay Z, etc.). Ricky the Boss has more guests, but it’s about quality and Pharrell is riding a huge wave now.
Here’s the ultimate choice. Do you take the Pink or Yellow pill? Maybach are rolling & we’re happy. Ride along to these amazing albums.

Bad rabbit. Talking all sexy. Music to rebound to after a hangover. At least that’s the category I’m dropping it into. Pour up…drink…rebound..drink…sit down…drink…pass out…drink. This song continues the nice trend of danceable, in your skivvies, kind of tunes. Hey, it’s just you & the mirror after all. No shame.
Couldn’t sleep last night. So I wrote. A lot. It all drops later tonight. Here is a little something-something you might not of heard of.
Strange music never sounded so good. B4M Fav Tech N9ne joins up with King Kendrick, Mayday, and the siren Kendall Morgan for the visuals for “Fragile”. The best track from Tech’s 2013 venture. Haunting with Lamar proving when he’s the lyrical shit.
The director cut version of music video includes a story to go along with that epic performance piece. Gritty. Like a rose raising from the concrete…something like should happen more.

You damned do. Dammed if you don’t. All you can do is runaway. The gritty, real life visuals for J. Cole’s ‘Born Sinner’ cuts — “She Knows” showcases the story of a troubled boy named Kyle just trying to live his life. Love how Jermaine has brought some great real life stories to be the message of his music. Makes Born Sinner still one of my favorite albums of 2013.

This sounds heavenly. Foxes mashed up the lyrics to Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home” & Eminem + Rihanna’s “The Monster” to fuse a coherent track…perfect for the Valentine’s Day holiday. It’s the soft vocal & swift melody that really gets me. Enjoy.
2 Chainz’s verse is the only reason why I’m writing this blurb. ”My floor is about money, that’s why I have no ceiling…” take care of the rest Tity Boi.
Do it. Do it.
The autobiographical track from Big Sean’s lackluster 2013 LP, ‘Hall of Fame’, that is dedicated to his ex. The video takes a wild left turn as you might expect. Mr. Big is captured, brutally tortured, ultimately leading into one hell of a chase. Is it a tragic end? Watch and find out. C’mon…Do it.
