Summary: Back to the rap.
About Artist: DJ Khaled had a great year, taking his celebrity to the next level, and releasing a widely acclaimed album “Major Key” (2016).
About Song: This song was the 3rd single from DJ Khaled’s “MajorKey” (2016). This song features a first verse Big Sean, a second verse by Kendrick Lamar, and some awesome vocals by Betty Wright.
Favorite Part: I love the chorus, Betty Wright Kills.
“Niggas over stressing, we under investigation
Every day off to the races, can’t fuck with you if you racist
Beat your ass until you purple
They can’t even tell what your race is
Doctor King meet Dr. Dre
Except this doctor lost all his patience” (1:25)
“So what you look up to?
Fame and fortune, bitches, Porsches
Sources with designer thing
Brand endorsement joining forces with sorcerers signing me
Law enforcement their forces, tortures us with violent speed
Fuck your boss’s employment my joy is to see all you bleed” (3:05)
The outro is also one of the best part with the beat and Betty Wright riding out.

DOWNLOAD MP3 TravisScott-GoosebumpsftKendrickLamar.mp3
THIS SONG HAS BEEN REMOVED DUE TO A COMPLAINT BY THE RIAA.
Summary: I get those goosebumps everytime Kendrick goes off.
About Artist: Travis Scott is a 24 year old rapper from Texas. He was a XXL Freshmen in 2013.I saw him perform with Kanye and Chance the Rapper in 2015 and have had my eye more on him since. Kendrick Lamar is hip hop’s west coast king.
About Song: This song is off of Travis Scott’s second album “Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight” (2016). I really liked the album, and another song Pick Up the Phone (ft. Young Thug) which was pretty successful (it’s the song with the super mario steel drums).
Favorite Part: Ahhh! This song had me on one for more than a minute in early September. I love the track! I have like four different instrumental/cover versions. I like how the song slowly builds and Travis sounds nice on it. Then Kedrick Lamar comes in and completely destroys it. It’s not a long verse but it kills. Love it.

Kendrick Lamar – Sing About Me (Cover Song by Greg)

January 24th, 2015

DOWNLOAD MP3 KendrickLamar-SingAboutMeCoverByGreg.mp3
Summary:┬áThis is not part of the regular blog series… just a shitty cover I did in one take.

This song is a quick first take cover I made of Kendrick Lamar’s masterful “Sing About Me, I’m Dying Of Thirst” (produced by Like of Pac Div).

I originally just wanted to save this song to my Soundcloud account but when I tried to save it I got the following message….

“Our automatic content protection system has detected that your track, “———- ——“, may contain copyright protected content and we’ve blocked it from being published on your profile.”

It feels shitty to be told a small piece of art that you made with love, in appreciation of a great song, is illegal and shall be blocked. Fuck You Soundcloud. How can you supress culture like that?

Lucky for me I pay for my own web host and, at least for now, that web host will still let me host this mp3.

Favorite Part: You have listen to the original song (I don’t do it any justice). The gunshots at the end of the first verse is one of the most power pieces of music that I know.

Other: Original album art by greg ; )
