December 19th, 2016

AndersonPaak-MightBe

DOWNLOAD MP3 AndersonPaak-MightBe.mp3
Summary: 1 Track. 4 Songs
About Artist: Anderson .Paak is rising west coast star puttin out all the right vibes. Phil Ade is an DC area rapper who I first featured on gregshiphop.com back in 2009. The Game is an LA rapper who been in the game for a while now (no pun intended). Xscape is an old R&B group from the 90’s.
About Song:I am absolutely in love this this track. Below are four songs that all use the same track. I love all of these verisions…
Anderson .Paak – “Might Be” (2015)
Phil Ade – “Xscape” (2014)
The Game – “Do It To You (ft. Trey Songz)” (2016)
Xscape “Who Can I Run To” (1995)
In January 2016 I heard The Game’s “Do It To You (ft. Trey Songz)”. That reminded me of this Anderson .Paak version from September 2015. I really liked the Anderson .Paak version which at the time reminded me of the Phil Ade’s song “Xscape” (2014). Of course the original is by Xscape and is called “Who Can I Run To” (1995).
Favorite Part: Love the track and I love all of the versions…
Anderson .Paak – “Might Be” (2015)

Chance The Rapper – Grown Ass Kid (ft. Mick Jenkins, Alex Wiley)

June 29th, 2016

DOWNLOAD MP3 ChanceTheRapper-GrownAssKidftMickJenkins.mp3
Summary: “My favorite rapper a Christian rapper”
About Artist: Chance the Rapper is has been growing on me a lot since 2013. His album Acid Rap was amazing, I don’t know why “Good Ass Intro” or “Cocoa Butter Kisses” isn’t on this blog. I was super fortunate to see Chance the Rapper perform Kanye’s Family Business at a show with the both of the them in the summer of 2015. Then Chance dropped Coloring Book in May 2016 and the first time I heard it I knew it would probably be my favorite album of the year. Mick Jenkins is considerably less famous but I was obsessed with his 2015 mixtape “The Water[s]”.

About Song: Grown Ass Kid should have been track 11 on “Coloring Book” but it didn’t make the album because copyright law.
Favorite Part: beat, flow, the whole thang.

DOWNLOAD MP3 YasiinGaye-InnerCityTravellinMan.mp3
Summary: A Masterful Mix
About Artist: This mix is only one track off of a tape by Amerigo Gazaway called “Yasiin Gaye: The Departure”. Amerigo is a producer who who has done some truly awesome projects, one which is a Tribe Called Quest vs Pharcyde album and one that is full of Fela Kuti remixes. This Yasiin Gaye project has been taken down by the RIAA which is complete fucking bullshit.
About Song: This was a single from the project but you should definitely check out the rest of the album. Oh wait, you won’t be able to download the free album because the RIAA sent a cease and desist letter and threatened to sue.

These are the samples that I’ve found in this track so far…

Marvin Gaye – I Heard It Through The Grapevine
DJ Honda – Travellin’ Man (Remix)
Yasiin Bey – I’m Leaving Lyrics
Marvin Gaye – You Can Leave, But It’s Going To Cost You
Favorite Part:
The whole mix just flows so well.

J. Cole – Forbidden Fruit (ft. Kendrick Lamar) #Summer2013

September 28th, 2013

DOWNLOAD MP3 JCole-ForbiddenFruitftKendrickLamar.mp3
Summary: #Summer2013 is a recap of the songs that made the summer of 2013 one of the best ever. Born Sinner was one of great albums this summer with Power Trip, Trouble, and Crooked Smile, Niggaz Know being some of the great songs on the albums.
About Artist: J. Cole was a freshman in the rap game not that many years ago but with his diehard following he continues to climb to new heights. J. Cole is known for his storytelling style and quality albums. Kendrick Lamar, new king of the west coast, stayed hot this summer with songs like How Many Drinks, Robin Thicke’s Give it 2 U, Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe (with the Jay-Z feature) and his diss track Control (ft. Big Sean and Jay Electronica).
About Song: Crooked Smile (ft. TLC) should probably hold this spot since it was a Born Sinner track that got considerable airplay but I just like this song was better. Forbidden Fruit is the third single off of Born Sinner but we’ll see how successful it is.

Favorite Part:
The intro with Kendrick singing “oh no” at 0:09.

The bass line throughout the song.

The adam and eve apple concept.
