Summary: I could mix this song on the turntables alllll day.
About Artist: Big Boi is one hald of Outkast and he has recently released a couple awesome remixes of songs from his last album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. Big Boi is from the south as it Big K.R.I.T. (not very famous but has a hard core following and is well respected). UGK (the duo of Bun B and the now deceased Pimp C) are also know as the southern underground kings.
About Song: This song is a mashup of sorts of Gossip (a single off of Big Boi’s last album) and Big Oyster Cult’s ’70s song Godzilla. Big Boi does and awesome job reworking the original rock song into this awesome remix.
Favorite Part:
The rock meets hip hop thing really works in this track.

I love when it cuts out and the vocal just say ‘Godzilla!’ …and I love the electric guitars and the hard bass drum.

Summary: Alright gets get this blog goin again.
About Artist:  This join is a collaboration from compilation mixtape by DJ Whoo Kid, DJ Skee & DJ MLK, called SXEW Vol 1. which was released in early February. The tape is in anticipation of the South By South West music festival. The mixtape has  lots of good, bump in your car, bump in the club songs, mostly existing songs that are hot right now with a little remix twist on them. Hustle Gang is the name of T.I’s crew, to which Iggy Azalea recently signed (Hustle Gang = Grand Hustle basically).  Iggy Azalea is one of my fav’s an happens to be from Australia. Young Dro is also a part of that crew. T.I. is the king of the south and while his commercial peak seems to have past he is still a big name in Hip Hop.
About Song: This song has tags on it (sorry) but even though it’s poor quality it still bangs! This song is an example of one the ‘originals’ that’s on this tape and it’s probably my favorite track from the compilation.
Favorite Part:
Solid beat with awesome verses from T.I and Iggy Azalea.

Summary: I’m having trouble finding time to post but here’s a good banger. Speakers Required!
About Artist: Pusha T is/was one half of the duo the Clipse. While he’s been in the game a looong time he is just now truly embarking on his solo career. 2 Chainz is the ‘from another planet’ all over the radio rapper, and Big Sean is someone who hit the scene around 2009 and has rolled with Kanye on hits like Mercy, Clique and that Marvin and Chardonnay song.
About Song: This is off of Pusha T’s debut album My Name is My Name. I Really like this album and there are 3 or 4 songs I could have posted here. I haven’t liked a big sean verse in a while but I think he has the best verse here. You definitely need speakers to appreciate this song

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.

Kanye West – Blood on the Leaves #Summer2013

DOWNLOAD MP3 KanyeWest-BloodOnTheLeaves.mp3
Summary: #Summer2013 is a recap of the songs that made the summer of 2013 one of the best ever. Yeezus was one of the great albums of the summer, my favorite track on the album was ‘I’m In It’ posted previously here.
About Artist: Kanye West is my favorite. While he is known mostly for his personality the music he creates is always interesting and often unparalleled. He’s not afraid to try new things and yet somehow consistently creates really great music.
About Song: This is a track off of his sixth studio album ‘Yeezus’ which dropped the same day as J. Cole’s Born Sinner. Kanye said that lot of the Yeezus album was expression frustration and you can definitely here that in this song.

Favorite Part: 

I love the Strange Fruit Sample, and then when the horns drop at 1:08.
The intro is really one of my favorite parts the whole piano and the
“I just need to clear my mind now
It’s been racin’ since the summertime
Now I’m holdin’ down the summer now
And all I want is what I can’t buy now
Cause I ain’t got the money on me right now”
Plus the song just really captures a story and emotion of a breakup like that.

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)

Kanye West – I’m In It (ft. Agent Sasco, Justin Vernon)

June 18th, 2013

DOWNLOAD MP3 KanyeWest-ImInIt.mp3
Summary: New Kanye! Turn those speakers UP
About Artist: Kanye West is one of my alll time faves. Hailing out of Chicago as a producer in the late 90s Kanye’s career has continued to climb to new heights.
About Song: This track is off of Yeezus which is Kanye’s 6th album which was released June 18th (today) but leaked nearly a week ago (I waited till the album was released to start posting songs from it). The song features Jamaican rap by Agent Sasco (aka Assassin), don’t know much more about him. It also features vocals from Justin Vernon who is the frontman for Bon Inver which collaborated with Kanye in “Monster” off of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
Favorite Part:
Well first of all this song is amazing! I love how Kanye continues to evolve and always bring new sounds into the mainstream while still maintaining his ‘Ye-ness.

I really like the seductiveness of the begining of the song. I don’t mind the Kanye’s blunt sexual explicitness cause it just makes the verse feel real and doesn’t feel over the top to me. Even though it’s very dark and crass it still has a certain sensuality.

Then the song Really gets going at 1:19. I LOVE that drop! Agent Sasco sounds awesome when he goes all doubletime on it.

Then the hook at 1:40 remind me of The Weekend, and adds to the sex on the dancefloor feel.

The minimalist verse at 2:11 is also awesome. The beat just drops out except for the drums and Kanye brings  a solid verse with lines like “She cut from a different textile” and “Put my fist in her like a civil rights sign”. While I’m not into fisting the verse just works. I’d suggest checking out the lyrics at RapGenius.

Finally the outro/last verse (3:23) is the BEST part. Just one fucking drum, and Kanye, goin hard!
“Time to take it too far now
Uh, Michael Douglas out the car now
Uh, got the kids and the wife life
Uh, but can’t wake up from the night life
Uh, I’m so scared of my demons
Uh, I go to sleep with a nightlight
Uh, my mind move like a Tron bike
Uh, pop a wheelie on the Zeitgeist
Uh, I’m finna start a new movement
Uh, being led by the drums
Uh, I’m a rap-lic priest
Uh, getting head by the nuns
Uh, they don’t play what I’m playing
Uh, they don’t see what I’m saying
Uh, they be balling in the D-League
Uh, I be speaking Swaghili”
Of course it’s not just the lyrics but it’s the delivery.

DOWNLOAD MP3 ChinxDrugz-ImACokeboyftFrenchMontana.mp3
Summary: Shout out to Will of XXBC for getting this track stuck in my head.
About Artist: Chinx Drugz is a member of the group Coke Boys along with French Montana. French Montana, who was born in Morocco (who knew), is an up and comer who runs with Diddy’s Bad Boy Records and Rick Ross’ Maybach Music.
About Song:  This song actually has a pretty dope official remix with Rick Ross and Diddy but I’m trying not to promote Rick Ross since he is the embodiment of almost everything that is wrong with hip hop (though I’ll admit I like what he does in some of his songs) Anyway… this song is a couple years old but got renewed life with the recent remix.
Favorite Part: I really like the instrumental, and I like the way the song bangs. Nothing crazy on the lyrical side but it’s a solid song.

Iggy Azalea – Work (prod. 1st Down of FKi)

March 13th, 2013

IggyAzalea-Work
DOWNLOAD MP3 IggyAzalea-Work.mp3
Summary: Something to get you over the hump this Wednesday.
About Artist: Iggy Azalea is a rapper from Australia. She first gained prominence when one of her promo songs Pu$$y went viral on youtube, which is a Iggy song that I also really like. While I do like a lot of the beats she raps on and she does have a lot of skills it sucks that basically she’s taken the route of marketing herself as a hypersexualized female body. I don’t know much about FKi but you can check out there youtube channel in the links at the bottom of this post.
About Song: This song is the single off of Iggy Azalea’s upcoming april EP also called work. Her debut album The New Classic is due out some time this summer.
Favorite Part:
I dunno what part I like best. I like the track and I like her rap. There isn’t one single part that really sticks out at me but I guess I really like the way the song was put together in the chorus and the way it flows from verse to chorus and back.

M.I.A. – Bad Girls (N.A.R.S. Remix)(ft. Azealia Banks, Missy Elliott)

March 8th, 2013

MIA-BadGirlsMNARSRemixftAzealiaBanksMissyElliott
DOWNLOAD MP3 MIA-BadGirlsMNARSRemixftAzealiaBanksMissyElliott.mp3
Summary: Wombyn Represent! Today is International Women’s Day, so I thought it’d be a nice time to reflect on how women are so under-represented in hip-hop, but also how Fcking Baddass some of those FEMCs are. Shout out to women across the world!
About Artist: M.I.A is a British artist with ties to Sri Lanka. Her music is all over the place with a cacophony of different sounds.  Basically she’s a badass and I love her. Azealia Banks is a somewhat underground young up and coming rapper/singer. Sadly there is almost no room for female hip-hop artist at the top but I hope she can rise through the ranks cause I think she’s super cool too. Missy Elliot is Hip Hop’s B-Girl Queen. While seemingly past her prime at this point (you know how women’s careers get shut down early) Missy Elliot still kills it. Dancing, singing, rapping, Missy Elliot does it all is one of the most positive female role models in all of hip hop (in my opinion).
About Song: This song was originally released last year and sparked a number of official remixes including this one.  The video for the original song was frickin awesome and I can’t say how many people wanted to show it to me when it first came out. You can really get MIA’s vibe from the video.
Favorite Part:
This remix is HOT! M.I.A. does her thing, Missy Elliot puts her style and attitude on the track, and then Azealia Banks comes in and just straight Kills It!

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!
