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 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 BigBoi-GossipZillaftBigKRITUGKBlueOysterCult.mp3
Summary: I could mix this song on the turntables alllll day.
About Artist: Big Boi is one hald of Outkast and he has recently released a couple awesome remixes of songs from his last album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. Big Boi is from the south as it Big K.R.I.T. (not very famous but has a hard core following and is well respected). UGK (the duo of Bun B and the now deceased Pimp C) are also know as the southern underground kings.
About Song: This song is a mashup of sorts of Gossip (a single off of Big Boi’s last album) and Big Oyster Cult’s ’70s song Godzilla. Big Boi does and awesome job reworking the original rock song into this awesome remix.
The rock meets hip hop thing really works in this track.
I love when it cuts out and the vocal just say ‘Godzilla!’ …and I love the electric guitars and the hard bass drum.

Summary: Alright gets get this blog goin again.
About Artist: This join is a collaboration from compilation mixtape by DJ Whoo Kid, DJ Skee & DJ MLK, called SXEW Vol 1. which was released in early February. The tape is in anticipation of the South By South West music festival. The mixtape has lots of good, bump in your car, bump in the club songs, mostly existing songs that are hot right now with a little remix twist on them. Hustle Gang is the name of T.I’s crew, to which Iggy Azalea recently signed (Hustle Gang = Grand Hustle basically). Iggy Azalea is one of my fav’s an happens to be from Australia. Young Dro is also a part of that crew. T.I. is the king of the south and while his commercial peak seems to have past he is still a big name in Hip Hop.
About Song: This song has tags on it (sorry) but even though it’s poor quality it still bangs! This song is an example of one the ‘originals’ that’s on this tape and it’s probably my favorite track from the compilation.
Solid beat with awesome verses from T.I and Iggy Azalea.
PushaT-WhoIAmft2ChainzBigSean Audio Player
Summary: I’m having trouble finding time to post but here’s a good banger. Speakers Required!
About Artist: Pusha T is/was one half of the duo the Clipse. While he’s been in the game a looong time he is just now truly embarking on his solo career. 2 Chainz is the ‘from another planet’ all over the radio rapper, and Big Sean is someone who hit the scene around 2009 and has rolled with Kanye on hits like Mercy, Clique and that Marvin and Chardonnay song.
About Song: This is off of Pusha T’s debut album My Name is My Name. I Really like this album and there are 3 or 4 songs I could have posted here. I haven’t liked a big sean verse in a while but I think he has the best verse here. You definitely need speakers to appreciate this song
Big Sean’s verse (2:15)
BoB-HeadBandft2Chainz Audio Player
Summary: #Summer2013 is a recap of the songs that made the summer of 2013 one of the best ever. B.o.B had a summer hit yay
About Artist: B.o.B might be the most musically talented diverse hip hop artist in the game right now. I’ve lovin him for a long time and while he’s mainly gotten radio play on some of his more popier songs, it was great this summer to hear him blowin it up on the radio in a straight up hip hop track with 2 Chainz. 2 Chainz is from Georgia and while he’s been around forever he’s only recently gotten famous. While not too lyrically inclined his unique style and personality has taken him a long way.
About Song: HeadBand is the first song off of BoB’s highly anticipated third album Underground Luxury, which will be more hip hop focused. The album isn’t close to being released but my hopes are sky high.
I love the beat on this song. It’s just a good song to blast out your car.

Summary: #Summer2013 is a recap of the songs that made the summer of 2013 one of the best ever. Yeezus was one of the great albums of the summer, my favorite track on the album was ‘I’m In It’ posted previously here.
About Artist: Kanye West is my favorite. While he is known mostly for his personality the music he creates is always interesting and often unparalleled. He’s not afraid to try new things and yet somehow consistently creates really great music.
About Song: This is a track off of his sixth studio album ‘Yeezus’ which dropped the same day as J. Cole’s Born Sinner. Kanye said that lot of the Yeezus album was expression frustration and you can definitely here that in this song.
I love the Strange Fruit Sample, and then when the horns drop at 1:08.
The intro is really one of my favorite parts the whole piano and the
“I just need to clear my mind now
It’s been racin’ since the summertime
Now I’m holdin’ down the summer now
And all I want is what I can’t buy now
Cause I ain’t got the money on me right now”
Plus the song just really captures a story and emotion of a breakup like that.
