This weeks Hip-Hop weekly consists of tracks by October’s Very Own Drizzy “The Baddest Motherfucker Canada has given birth to since Steve Nash” Drake, Young “Welcome Mat” Chris, Asher Paul Roth, Colin “Catalina Winemixer” Monroe, Kid “Superduperduder Cudi” and some chick named Lorine Chia. Enjoy.
I WOULD find 2 brand new Rick Ross songs after already posting this week’s Hip-Hop Weekly. The timing of my luck is about as convenient as a cop catching you speeding to your house as you rush to drop a deuce. While my luck seems to be a little off I have to say that Rick Ross’s new jams are the furthest thing from “off”. On the first one entitled “Diced Pineapples” Sir Ricky Ross raps with two fellow family members of Rap’s royal family in Drake and Wale. The second song by Mr. Ross is only made better by Andre 3000′s verse. I hope you guys enjoy.
This track is Breezy’s response to his fight with October’s very own Drizzy Drake. I may be a little biased in this whole situation, but I am team Drake. The only thing that could make this “brawl” more interesting is if Rihanna hooked up with Tony Parker and his messed up eye. The song it self is not great…I’ll probably delete it off of my itunes library when I do my anual “Itunes delete the songs that I do not listen to day”. With all of this being said I think it should also be mentioned that this is not one of the better diss tracks that I’ve heard, and I anticipate the Duke of Drake to come back firing at Chris Brown. People ask what caused this fight, and I really cannot think of one single reason. Sure the fact that they both wanted to Plow “lil mis sunshine” (Rihanna where you at) has to be noted, but I think this rivalry dates back to when the two artists acting careers on teen soap operas. Everyone knows that Drake played “the kid in the wheel-chair” on Degrassi, but few people remember (or ever knew) that Chris Brown played the goody good friend of Caitlin Cooper on the O.C. In his short stint on “The O.C” C Breezy’s character made a stand against smoking pot, and was a tutor to Marissa Cooper’s smoking hot little sister. You can listen and think what you want but I’m not sure if it will be remembered as much as other disses (Ether by Nas has to be my favorite).
In This Hip – Hop Weekly we find ourselves with a rather stacked line-up (if I may say so myself). Starting with “Fuck My Life” by the Purple Monkey Circus which is a chill track taken to the next level by sampling Passion Pit’s “To Kingdom Come”. “Fuck My Life” has quite ridiculous lyrics in that they touch on some of the most awkward situations/misunderstandings that a man can go through in his life. Next we have “2 Reas0ns” by Trey Songz which is only made better by adding the ever so confident voice of my main man T.I. Our third track for this weekly update is Wiz Khalifa’s Ozs, and Lbs. Anybody who is anybody knows exactly what Wiz is talking about when he mentions these increments of measure, and I assure you that it is worth a listen regardless of where you stand on Wiz’s “habits”. After that we have “Pop That” brought to you by the same crew who gave us “Stay Schemin” earlier this Spring. I am not a Justin Bieber fan, but when I saw that he had a track with Drake I had to add it to this weeks Hip – Hop selection. We finish off the weekly update with tracks from Yonas and the legend Lloyd Banks himself. I’m pretty confident in this release even after playing with the idea that “a chain is only as strong as it’s weakest link”. With that being said I feel that each of these is worth a listen.
Dj Drama releases this song with help from Drake and Future. Drake’s the first to go in on this sick beat and he kills it. I love Drake’s verse in this song, and the chorus is pretty solid too, the only problem with this song is Future’s verse, its to quiet and it is not as good as Drake’s in my mind. But, overall this song is a good jam for the first few minutes, and its worth the listen and download. Enjoy.
