Summary: Escape to 50 Cent’s world of wealth.
About Artist: 50 Cent is the super famous ‘In Da Club’ Queens NY rapper turned business mogul. Kendrick Lamar is the new face of west coast hip hop and of ‘true/real/authentic hip hop’ (whatever that means).
About Song: This song is the third single off of 50 Cents 5th album due out mid 2013 titled ‘Street King Immortal’. It originally featured G-Unit rapper Kidd Kidd but he was cut from the final version.
Favorite Part: Both 50 Cent’s verse and Kednrick’s are pretty good. I like how Kendrick brags about his clean rap sheet. I mostly like the song because the rap and music just fit with each other, and I’ll admit to being a sucker for Kendrick Lamar.

Pusha T – Raid (ft. 50 Cent, Pharrell)

Summary: Pusha T + 50 Cent + Pharrell = Killer Trio
About Artist: Pusha T is one half of the Clipse, who is just starting his solo career by recently signing with Kanye’s GOOD Music. I have always loved Clipse, they were one of the first hip-hop groups I ever heard and am really excited about Pusha T’s solo career potential. 50 Cent is… well 50 Cent. 50 isn’t what he once was as an artist like in 2003 when he lived on the radio but 50 still pulls in a ton of money from the industry through his various business ventures. Pharrell is one of my favorite artists. He is one half of the Neptunes which produced this track, and a third of N.E.R.D. Pharrell’s music isn’t limited to hip hop and his musical creativity is amazing. You can thank Pharrell’s for the awesome for the awesome mood that the beat sets for the song.
About Song: This new hip hop song is off of Pusha T’s first solo mixtape which just now dropped called Fear of God. Fear of God has been greatly anticipated and while I haven’t listened to it yet because it just came out yesterday, I’m sure it’s awesome!
Favorite Part:
I love the vibe of the song. Pharrell really sets the tone with the piano loop and the super cool hook. Nothing particular stands out in the rap verses but Pusha T does outshine 50 a little. I like the boat theme that Pusha plays with around 2:30
