DOWNLOAD MP3 ChinxDrugz-ImACokeboyftFrenchMontana.mp3
Summary: Shout out to Will of XXBC for getting this track stuck in my head.
About Artist: Chinx Drugz is a member of the group Coke Boys along with French Montana. French Montana, who was born in Morocco (who knew), is an up and comer who runs with Diddy’s Bad Boy Records and Rick Ross’ Maybach Music.
About Song: This song actually has a pretty dope official remix with Rick Ross and Diddy but I’m trying not to promote Rick Ross since he is the embodiment of almost everything that is wrong with hip hop (though I’ll admit I like what he does in some of his songs) Anyway… this song is a couple years old but got renewed life with the recent remix.
Favorite Part: I really like the instrumental, and I like the way the song bangs. Nothing crazy on the lyrical side but it’s a solid song.

DOWNLOAD MP3 IggyAzalea-Work.mp3
Summary: Something to get you over the hump this Wednesday.
About Artist: Iggy Azalea is a rapper from Australia. She first gained prominence when one of her promo songs Pu$$y went viral on youtube, which is a Iggy song that I also really like. While I do like a lot of the beats she raps on and she does have a lot of skills it sucks that basically she’s taken the route of marketing herself as a hypersexualized female body. I don’t know much about FKi but you can check out there youtube channel in the links at the bottom of this post.
About Song: This song is the single off of Iggy Azalea’s upcoming april EP also called work. Her debut album The New Classic is due out some time this summer.
I dunno what part I like best. I like the track and I like her rap. There isn’t one single part that really sticks out at me but I guess I really like the way the song was put together in the chorus and the way it flows from verse to chorus and back.

Summary: Wombyn Represent! Today is International Women’s Day, so I thought it’d be a nice time to reflect on how women are so under-represented in hip-hop, but also how Fcking Baddass some of those FEMCs are. Shout out to women across the world!
About Artist: M.I.A is a British artist with ties to Sri Lanka. Her music is all over the place with a cacophony of different sounds. Basically she’s a badass and I love her. Azealia Banks is a somewhat underground young up and coming rapper/singer. Sadly there is almost no room for female hip-hop artist at the top but I hope she can rise through the ranks cause I think she’s super cool too. Missy Elliot is Hip Hop’s B-Girl Queen. While seemingly past her prime at this point (you know how women’s careers get shut down early) Missy Elliot still kills it. Dancing, singing, rapping, Missy Elliot does it all is one of the most positive female role models in all of hip hop (in my opinion).
About Song: This song was originally released last year and sparked a number of official remixes including this one. The video for the original song was frickin awesome and I can’t say how many people wanted to show it to me when it first came out. You can really get MIA’s vibe from the video.
This remix is HOT! M.I.A. does her thing, Missy Elliot puts her style and attitude on the track, and then Azealia Banks comes in and just straight Kills It!

DOWNLOAD MP3 BoB-OutOfMyMindftNickiMinaj.mp3
Summary: Sometimes the world is so messed up it makes me feel Out Of My Mind #EmbraceTheMadness. This is not new but a good song to jumpstart the week.
About Artist: B.o.B. is one of my favorite artists. Not only can he rap but he’s a complete musician.While his career has taken a sharp turn toward pop music I’m still a big Bobby Ray fan. Check out other B.o.B songs from gregshiphop (there’s a lot of them). Nicki Minaj came from her hip hop roots to be one of today’s giant pop starts.
About Song: This song isn’t new. It is a track off of B.o.B.’s 2012 sophomore album “Strange Clouds”.
I like around 2:22 when B.o.B. is talking ending in “how am I supposed to pronounce this shit” right before the beat drops.
And the beat is just awesome!

DOWNLOAD MP3 DJDrama-SoManyGirlsftWaleTygaRoscoeDash.mp3
Summary: I don’t normally like ‘these kind’ of hip hop songs, but theres something about this track that gets me so hype (and I’m pretty sure its not the misogynist rapping).
About Artist: DJ Drama is mainly a mixtape DJ. He’s done about a bajillion mixtapes most notably the Gangsta Grillz series and Lil Wayne’s Dedication mixtapes. Wale is a DC rapper who I used to really love but has kind of taken a different artistic path lately (you can find a lot of Wale on this blog). Tyga is part of Lil Wayne’s Young Money. I think his songs are really hit or miss, he definitely has talent but so many of Young Money’s songs are just so dumb. Rosco Dash is a young ATL rapper who most famous for his song All The Way Turnt Up. The song was produced by Boi 1da who I really really like and who obviously makes this song what it is since the rapping is not amazing.
About Song: This song is off of DJ Drama 2012 album (yes album) Quality Street Music. The album is pretty good and of course has a crazy number of features from Ludacris and 2 Chainz to Kendrick Lamar and Wiz Khalifa.
My favorite part is when the intro drops into the beat. It just gives me that party energy!
DOWNLOAD MP3 BoB-StillInThisBitchftTIJuicyJ.mp3
Summary: This one’s a banger. Loud speakers required!
About Artist: If you’ve followed this blog at all you know that B.o.B is one of my favorite artists! He plays instruments, he produces, And he and fcking rap. He comes outta Georgia and while he is known more for his pop music (launching the career of Bruno Mars with the song Nothing On You) he is also keeps it so real on the hip hop world. T.I. also comes out of Atlanta and signed BoB to his Grand Hustle music label a few years back. T.I. has long been recognized as one of the hip hop kings of the south. Juicy J is yet another southern rapper. Juicy J has been in the game since the early 90s as a member of Three 6 Mafia. While Juicy J has always been around he’s seen a huge resurgence as a solo artist with his recent single Bandz a Make her Dance. This track was produced by Mike Will whos been crankin out many hot beats from Atlanta the last several years (check him out!).
About Song: This song is off of BoB’s 2012 mixtape Fuck Em We Ball, which was a kind of return to loud southern rap songs.
Favorite Part: Well the beat speaks for itself. This one you just can’t help but crank!
I’m pretty sure I like B.o.B’s verse best. And my favorite part is at 0:44
“Got all these pounds of ganja, I work out, I’m doing kushups
Bobby Bands is in the building, pop that pussy throw a foot up In the air,
one time for a nigga like me with a squad like this
With a team so strong with a flow so cold, ain’t nothing but some bad bitches in my clique”
