Wale – Let A Nigga Know (ft. Chinx Drugs, Fatz)(prod by Rico Beats)

March 5th, 2013

DOWNLOAD MP3 Wale-LetANiggaKnowftChinxDrugsFatzprodbyRicoBeats.mp3
Summary:  This is the fun high energy Wale that I love. Feel the beat.
About Artist: Wale is a DC rapper who was once one of my favorite rappers. He really makes two different types of music, the original playful kinda rapping and his new Rick Ross / Maybach Music gold chains and car rapping. I have no clue who Chinx Drugs or Fatz are. I’ve heard the name Rico Beats before and I’m sure he’s worked with a lot of artists but the only thing I remember him from is Nicki Minaj’s Roman Reloaded.
About Song: This song is one of the better tracks off of Wale’s 2012 mixtape Folarin which was really hit or miss with about 4 tracks that I really liked. (Bad, a song posted here a couple days ago, being another one).
Favorite Part:
I really like the beat especially in the pre-chorus in places like 1:27 where it then drops into the chorus. I just really feel the beat to this one. Plus I like the kind of obscured singing in the background track.

Game – Jesus Piece (ft. Kanye West, Common)

February 12th, 2013

DOWNLOAD MP3 Game-JesusPieceftKanyeWestCommon.mp3
Summary: Just a solid rap track.
About Artist:  The Game is a mainstream LA rapper. Leading west coast rap in the early 2000s under Dr. Dre, Game joined 50 Cent’s G-Unit clique before leaving due to an apparent feud between him and 50 Cent. His 2005 debut album The Documentary was quite successful with singles including “How We Do” and “Hate It or Love It”. Kanye West is from Chicago and is obviously one of the biggest names in hip hop nowadays. Common is also from Chicago and has been in the game for quite a long time with his first album having been released in 1992. Common is both and R&B and Rap artist and was known for quite a while as a ‘conscious’ rapper, including uplifting and positive lyrics in his songs. Currently Common also pursues an acting career and is now a part of Kanye’s music group G.O.O.D. Music.
About Song: Jesus Piece is a song off of the Game’s 2012 album by the same name.
Favorite Part: I do really like the beat and the Game’s verses sound solid over it (Kanye’s signature ‘huh’ on the chorus doesn’t sound bad either). However I think my favorite part is Common’s verse at the end of the song.

Kendrick Lamar – Backseat Freestyle (Prod. By Hit-Boy)

October 16th, 2012

DOWNLOAD MP3 KendrickLamar-BackseatFreestyleprodbyHitBoy.mp3
Summary: Another instant classic brought to you by Kendrick Lamar. Look out for “Good Kid, Mad City” dropping Monday October 22nd (AND HE’S GONNA BE ON TUCSON THAT DAY!)
About Artist:  The new prince of the west coast, Kendrick Lamar is carrying the torch for LA with all the style, grit, lyricism and originality that LA has been known for. While is legacy is still in the making Kendrick has all the makings of a king. His authenticity and pure talent vaults him into discussions of ‘best rapper alive’ and he shines as a beacon that Hip Hop is still alive!
About Song: This song is a track that was just recently released here on soundcloud. It is one of the tracks off of Kendrick’s first commerical album Good Kid, m.A.A.d City. The first single off of the album Recipe I really really like but it never blew up on the radio (my guess because it had the word Weed in the chorus). Following that single was Swimming Pools (Drank) which I do hear on the radio a lot. Anyway, back to this song, it ir produced by Hit-Boy which, coincidentadnly, produced another jam that I was totoally into and posted on here a couple days ago Higher.
Favorite Part:
Well first off the track is dope! The f-ing bell-chime things and the arrindindin arrindindin get me hyped!

Lay on Kendricks flow over that and it just goes hard!

Kendrick doesn’t go off lyrically like he somtimes does but check out the Rap Genius link below because there are some crazy references.

Yelawolf – Hard White (remix)(ft. T.I., Slaughterhouse)

March 16th, 2012

DOWNLOAD MP3 Yelawolf-HardWhiteremixftTISlaughterhouse.mp3
Summary: Here’s a song where some very talented MCs just go hard.
About Artist: Gotta keep it short today. Basically Yelawolf is a young Eminem protege from the south. T.I. king of the south. And Slaughterhouse the four man crew of Joell Ortiz, Crooked I, Joe Budden and Royce 5’9.
About Song: This song is origianly off of Yelawolf debut 2011 album Radioactive. The original featured Lil Jon so obviously this official remix is a million times better.
Favorite Part:  Finally a song up here that is good for its straight rapping.

Pharoahe Monch – W.A.R. (ft. Immortal Technique, Vernon Reid)

April 4th, 2011

DOWNLOAD MP3 PharoaheMonch-WARftImmortalTechniqueVernonReid.mp3
Summary: Rise Up! Pharoahe Monch is Back!
About Artist: Pharoahe Monch is a rapper with a concious and is one of my personal favorites. Immortal Technique is even more a political rapper, also love him because he’s in it for the movement and to make a change. No clue who Vernon Reid is, but I just read he’s an all time great guitarist.
About Song: This hip hop song is off of Monch’s recently released W.A.R (We Are Renegades) album which is AWESOME! I like this song because it really sums up the military feel of the album. In my mind W.A.R. is what Lupe’s Lasers should have been. All I can see is you like responsible Hip Hop go listen to W.A.R.
Favorite Part:
This song just goes hard with two of my favorite political rappers. Really though this song just represents how great We Are Renegades is.

Tuge – Smoke Service

March 18th, 2011

DOWNLOAD MP3 Tuge-SmokeService.mp3
Summary: Who’s is Tuge? A great rapper, that’s who.
About Artist: I have not who Tuge is but the few songs he’s dropped I’ve really really liked. From what I’ve been able to find Tuge just started putting music out and his debut mixtape project will be coming soon and be called The Scrimmage, that’s all I know.
About Song: This song, like the several other Tuge songs I’ve heard and liked, has that kinda of money music, millionaire gangsta sound (which make sense since this beat is from Rick Ross’s I’m Not A Star) but instead of stupid Young Money, Maybach Music, lyrics Tuge can actually rap, and rap well.
Favorite Part:
I like the whole song but I espeically like when Tuge goes off at 2:28

This is just another example of how the current Charlie Sheen phenomena is taking over pop culture.
