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.

Favorite Part:
I just Love the chorus! “I  ain’t even know it – EVEN KNOW IT! even know it – KNOW IT ”

B.o.B – Headband (ft. 2 Chainz)

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.

Favorite Part: 

I love the beat on this song. It’s just a good song to blast out your car.

B.o.B – Missing

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. 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”.
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!

B.o.B – Still In This Bitch (ft. T.I. and Juicy J)(prod. by Mike Will)

February 13th, 2013

BoB-StillInThisBitchftTIJuicyJ
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”

Lloyd – Lay It Down (Remix)(ft. B.o.B, Rock City)

February 22nd, 2011

Lloyd-LayItDownRemixftBoBRockCity
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.

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!
