BoB-HeadBandft2Chainz Audio Player DOWNLOAD MP3BoB-HeadBandft2Chainz.mp3 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.
BoB-Missing Audio Player DOWNLOAD MP3 BoB-Missing.mp3 Summary: Hottt off the presses About Artist: B.o.B is all over this blog, sometimes I feel like I post him too much, but he has really been cranking out some awesome songs through his career. He is from ATL and runs with T.I’s Hustle Gang. While he gained mainstream popularity with pop songs like Nothin On You (ft. Bruno Mars) he can also go hard on the rap beats too. About Song This song dropped a couple days ago and is in anticipation to his third album Underground Luxury which will be more hip hop focuses Favorite Part:
The didgeridoo thing in the beat is dope, and I like BoB’s rap about real issues (poverty, corruption etc) and there are a couple lines I like in particular.
“Seems like since we got a black president
Black people stop questioning the government” (0:05)
“For god sakes there’s an all-seeing eye on the back of the dollar, we can’t even trust money
You need to understand who you dealing.. With
These are like modern day villains
These are type of people that would kill a whole village
Build a fucking building.. And say it’s just business
Who you think gave you religion?
Land of the free.. Who you think built it?” (0:35)
“I don’t need a hook but for hooks sake
If I had a hook, I’d make the hook say
“Be a good slave, be a good slave”
(Be a good slave, be a good slave)” (1:24)
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.

It is a track off of B.o.B.’s 2012 sophomore album “Strange Clouds”. Favorite Part: 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! Other: Nicki Minaj Wikipedia B.o.B. Wikipedia
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.

DOWNLOAD MP3 Lloyd-LayItDownRemixftBoBRockCity.mp3 Summary: Pop Hop About Artist: Lloyd is a Pop R&B singer. I generally hate the kind of music Llyod makes and I gotta say this song walks a fine line really close to the kind of song that drives me crazy (in a bad way). Rock City is some Caribean R&B duo, don’t know much about them. And then there’s B.o.B. who is the sole reason this song made it up here. If you don’t know, I love B.o.B and you can click HERE for more B.o.B. songs on gregshiphop.com About Song: This song is a super successful single off of Lloyds next album which comes out in April, and just for the record I could care less about this album. There is also another remix of this song which features Young Jeezy and R Kelly which you can listen to HERE. This song is super repetitive which I don’t like but it IS super catchy and BoB’s part is pretty cool (like always). Favorite Part:
Of course the best part is B.o.B’s part 0:30-1:10.
“I do not tap out, round two, round three,
cause I’m never going down like Muhammad Ali,
call me Cashis, when we hit the mattress
you be like oh yup (yup), baby call me randy savage (ooh ya)
you say you want me but be careful what you askin
causeI beat it up like delta does your baggage” (0:53-1:10)
I like how the beat drops out here at 0:58.
DOWNLOAD MP3 BoB-HighftPlayboyTre.mp3 Summary: Energy+Rap+Beat = Solid B.o.B About Artist: B.o.B. (aka Bobby Ray) is one of my favorite artists and you can read other B.o.B posts HERE to read a better bio and hear other tracks. Playboy Tre is a rapper that is one of B.o.B’s original crew. CyHi da Prince recently signed with Kanye’s GOOD Music and Bun B is the famous and well respected rapper from Texas (one half of UGK). About Song: This is off of B.o.B’s most recent (though not all that new) mixtape No Genre. Favorite Part:
I love the crazy wacky beat especially when it drops at 0:15.
I like everyone’s verse but especially Bun B’s at 4:09 Other
B.o.B has nominated for 5 Grammys the other night and didn’t win a single one, keeping him Grammyless. I honestly can’t believe that Nothing On You (ft Bruno Mars) didn’t win ANYTHING. To deny that that was one of the biggest songs of the year is just ridiciulous. Check out his performance at the 2011 Grammys below. There is so much talent there between BoB, Bruno Mars, and Janelle Monae. When Bruno sings BoB is on the Guitar when Janelle sing Bruno is on the Drums, I mean THESE GUYS ARE MUSICAL!
DOWNLOAD MP3 BoB-Fame.mp3 Summary: This song really pumps me up. The horns, the rap ahhh, heaven. About Artist: I’ve posted B.o.B (Bobby Ray) probably more than any other artist at this point so just look here if you want to reader a better bio from other posts. About Song:This song is one of my favorites off of B.o.B’s debut album B.o.B presents the Adventure of Bobby Ray. It was produced by a duo that goes by the name The Knux, who I’ve since really gotten into (check them out). The Knux samples a version of Summertime from the forgetable movie Stuck On You (which I never saw). I have to saw I was born the like this song. The genre of the track with it’s horns, guitar, syncopated beats, I mean I would die to get the official instrumental version. Not only that but B.o.B has some great verses over it. The verses are nothing crazzzy lyrically but it’s solid and works so well rhythmically with background. Favorite Part: First I LOVE the track’s instruments and rythem, absolutely love it (that’s why I included the video of the sample below)
“And I’m sayin I really ain’t with that complaining
Just look at the picture I’m painting
Yeah I paid my rent, vacationing, take trips all around be equator then,
Come back to the A hit the stage again,
Then I go up in the booth where they cage me in,
Feel regular but then I go insane again,
If you witness the condition that my brain is in,
You would see I’m in hell where Satan is…” (1:02)
The Chorus where B.o.B says “that, that that, that” like at 1:44
Popular, everybody wanna be popular
Little kids just be watching us through binoculars and then they go to school and copy us,
But, hey I’m not knocking ya but how can yall not see? its obvious cuz cops just be plottin on us and poparazzi be spottin us,
Cuz everybody just wanna be on MTV or BET
Or maybe season MVP
Or maybe even just prom king or queen
But everybody can’t be a G. O to the D
And everybody can’t be O. to the B.
But I don’t know, maybe this just how its supposed to be” (1:48)
I especially love the part at 1:12 where he says everybody can’t be a G (and then spells GOD) to add a double meaning and then says everybody can’t be “o to the b” when he’s really saying everybody can’t B.o.B. Other Talib Kweli Wikipedia The Knux Wikipedia
Check out where B.o.B and The Knux found the sample. I never saw the movie but apparently it’s from a rendition of summertime off of the movie Stuck On You (which I never saw)
