DOWNLOAD MP3 LupeFiasco-Thot97.mp3
Summary: Lupe is baaack! …and yes he can still rap.
About Artist: People may think Lupe has fallen off but I beg to differ. After his 2013 track SLR 2 which I posted on GregsHipHop last summer I would say Lupe his back from his more experiment electric grunge rock stuff to back to spittin that lyrical fire that he is so famous for. Lupe Fiasco is a old timer in the game by now and is respected as a lyrical genius with classic albums Food and Liquor and The Cool under his belt.
About Song: This title of the song is a play on the New York radio station Hot 97. It is part of a recent slew of track’s that Lupe has release online with the hashtag #Drogas. This is my favorite one of that batch so far.
DOWNLOAD MP3 Sango-BaileSomebody.mp3
Summary: A chill little instrumental mix
About Artist: I really don’t know anything about this guy. I’m pretty sure he live in the US but he must have some kind of Brazilian background.
About Song: This song is from a project that you can download for $1 here call Da Rocinha 2. Rocinha is a favela in Rio which is reflected in the album art. This track is a remix of Aaliyah’s Are You That Somebody, among other things.
Just a really creative mix that I like

DOWNLOAD MP3 TPain-UpDownftBoB.mp3
Summary: I know it was a radio hit but… I loves it!
About Artist: T-Pain is the autotune king of Buy U a Drank amoung other hits. B.o.B is one of my top favorites in the game right now. If you search this blog you’ll find a lot of B.o.B (songs that are way better than this one). If you want another T-Pain/B.o.B collaboration that didn’t get playtime back in 2010 go Google “T-Pain Trunk Band” (do it!)
About Song: This song was from the summer of 2013 and was the single off of T-Pain’s album. I know it was overplayed on radio and everything but I just really like bumpin this song. Strangely I don’t think B.o.B brought a lot to this track even though I’m a much bigger fan of his than T-Pain.
Behind the scenes, this track was produced by DJ Mustard, a name many aren’t familiar with but was the guy responsible for big hits like Tyga – Rack City, 2 Chainz – I’m different, B.o.B – Headband, Tyga – Throw it Up, YG – My Nigga, Kid Ink – Show Me, Ty Dolla Sign – Paranoid, and the recent Who Do You Love (a remix of which I recently posted here). If you don’t know those songs look them up because I’m sure you’ve heard them.
I just Love the chorus! “I ain’t even know it – EVEN KNOW IT! even know it – KNOW IT ”
DOWNLOAD MP3 ChildishGambino-TheWorstGuysftChanceTheRapper.mp3
Summary: A little alternative chill rap.
About Artist: Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) is a super talented guy. He was a writer for the TV show 30 Rock before acting in Community. His Childish Gambino alter ego does all of his own production and the dude can rap. Chance the Rapper is a young guys (under 21) from Chicago and has found huge sucess after his 2013 mixtape Acid Rap (which I really really like too).
About Song: This song is off of Gambino’s 2014 album Because The Internet (Gambino is very public and active on Twitter). If you want to appreciate the song fully check out the meaning of the lyrics on Rap Genius Here.
I like Childish Gambino’s first first. I also like how the song breaks down into those soaring electric guitars at the end.
DOWNLOAD MP3 Pharrell-KnowWhoYouAreftAliciaKeys.mp3
Summary: Pharrell’s new album G I R L was a bit of a let down but I like this track.
About Artist: Pharrell Williams is the hip hop producer, suave singer, style trendsetter, super talented musician extrodinaire. Alicia Keyes is a R&B queen (also a talented musician and piano player).
About Song: This song is off of Pharrell’s recently released album G I R L. The album was only 10 tracks and was a bit of a let down but how could it not be with such high expectations. Happy was of course the lead single from the album but along with that and this Alicia Keys track track I really liked the outro ‘It Girl’ .
Though it’s a little repetitive I really like the hook especially when Alicia Keys sings it. It’s easy listening and it makes me feel good.
DOWNLOAD MP3 TreySongz-WhoDoYouLoveRemix.mp3
Summary: The Trey Songz remix is almost always better than the original ; )
About Artist: Trey Songz is my favorite R&B singer. His flow and lyrical style put him lightyears beyond Chris Brown (and Drake just annoys me)
About Song: This is remix of the recent YG/Drake tack of the same name. PS DJ Mustard (who produced the original beat) is a one a roll with tracks like Headband, Show Me, Up Down, This D, and Paranoid, and I love what he’s been doing (his first huge hit was Rack City).
I dunno I just like the song.
DOWNLOAD MP3 JustinTimberlake-TKOBlackFridayRemixJColeASAPRockyPushaT.mp3
Summary: Not New, still good.
About Artist: Nothing to say today. This is just a good hip hop improvement on a pop song.
About Song: This was a song I mean to post a while ago. Was probably bumping this most in December 2013 (maybe earlier?) This sons is just a better version of JT’s original TKO
Reminds me of the raw fcking power of just being in love.
