Patiently Waiting

Cruel Summer leaked last night… and I haven’t heard it yet.  I usually feel iffy about listening to albums that I have anticipated for so long before their release date buuuutttt I’m anxious.  Features like  Ma$e and KelzTarius!!!!!?? I have to listen to it tonight. I don’t even want to hear the snippets for the rest of the tracks. “Clique” dropped and I’m not too hyped about the record. I think Pusha T should have been on it, but overall it was…. aiiight.  I’m pretty sure I’m going to love the album as a whole though. I mean… it IS a Kanye production.

If you really cant wait to hear this G.O.O.D. compilation and are anti-leak,  hit  iTunes for snippets of each song. (Though I”m pretty sure most of the world has bumped it hard in the past 17 hours)  Below is the tracklist. Until 9/18, be G.O.O.D. 

01. Kanye West and R. Kelly: “To the World”
02. Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Big Sean: “Clique”
03. Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha-T, and 2 Chainz: “Mercy”
04. Kanye West, Pusha-T, and Ghostface Killah: “New God Flow”
05. Raekwon, Pusha-T, Common, 2 Chainz, Cyhi the Prynce, Kid Cudi, and D’Banj: “The Morning”
06. DJ Khaled: “Cold”
07. The-Dream, Pusha-T, and Ma$e: “Higher”
08. John Legend, Travi$ Scott, Teyana Taylor, Cyhi the Prynce, and Malik Yusef: “Sin City”
09. Kanye West, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, and Marsha Ambrosius: “The One”
10. Kid Cudi: “Creepers”
11. John Legend and Teyana Taylor: “Bliss”

[Mood Tune] Riesling & Rolling Papers x Fabolous

I’ve recently been listening to random older mixtapes. I have these periods (which I’m sure, if you love music you do as well) where an old song is triggered in my head and I want to listen to all the music surrounding that time frame in Hip-Hop  or that artist. “I Don’t See Nobody” did that which made one of Fab’s best mixtapes, There Is No Competition, to be played repeated for about three days. I get into my music state of mind and decide TINC>TINC2>>>TINC3, totally forgetting that The Soul Tape diiiiiiiiiid drop. “Leaving U”, “Wolve in Sheep’s Clothing”, “Slow Down”, and “Riesling & Rolling Papers”… love those records.

Grabbing the Bars of the Day from the smooth Riesling & Rolling Papers, self-explanatory why Fabolous is one of my favorite rappers.

I’m down to earth like gravity, but man we up
Women get around me and they can-not keep their panties up/
Your boy drop jewels, you niggas should ante up
This is food for thought, you bitches fill the pantry up

Happy Birthday, Kanye!

Yeezy turned a nice 35 years today. We thank you for the last 11 years that you have made incredible music (publicly). Whether it was from all 5 of your platinum albums or the production you handed to many of our favorite artists, doing five beats a day for three summers did you well. From cheers to the ROC to toasting assholes, you have never failed me. We , your true fans, get you and that’s really all that matters. The little brother to my idol and my fake cousin, We love you Louis Vuitton Don! Enjoy and give thanks.

[Can I Live?] Perfect Timing

I’ve been wanting to talk about so much with the music game and such, but I’m so passionate for it that I know I will get off topic and talk about seven things at once yadablah therefore I’m going to try my best to tackle subjects one at a time and not break it all down in one post. Cool?

I say that to discuss this: timing. Timing is just that luck up moment in life period. Whether it’s accidentally running into someone, being in the right place at the right time, or everything going on around is lining up correct and you are the perfect fit.  Timing is vital when it comes to the rap game (Hip-hop as well for those who understand the difference). The worst thing is when a “hot” artist is released when majority of listeners are not checking for your mans… at all.  The sound is constantly changing and the lyrical content has gotten simple as Hooked on Phonics. In most cases, when an artist starts out, they have their own swag; flow, delivery, and the content relevance is their own (even if a mesh of others) so they may not change completely to fit what is needed at the time; in other words they are shelved until further notice, if given one.

For instance; Tity 2 Necklace is one of those artists who happened to turnup at the right time. If you listen to his music when he was Tity Boi, half of Player’s Circle, 2 Chainz sounds pretty much… the same. Of course, Wayne was really running the southern rap 2006-2007, so no one really checking for anyone up and coming (Though Supply and Demand did reach #1 on Billboards top rap albums). Now that the south is really taking over (stay tuned for this topic) and hip-hop has shifted once again in the last two years, Tity Boi is that guy. Hopping on tracks like Superfreak and Mercy on top of having a mixtape that was TURNUP in and out, you gotta hand it to ATL’s dread. He remained truuuuuue to his music and now he’s making baby Mercedes,  hitting his lanky two step, and gaining another audience;(another post) basically, getting this money.

I use 2 Chainz because so many people have much to say about Mr. Yaaah, but there are a few artists on the same wave. Do you know how many artists have had many projects and are just getting heard?  Even vis versa, you cant always come back when it WAS your time… it’s quiet for all of that. Kim… it’s dead. Pack it up, Nicki came and did the damn thing; endorsements, pop, Euro, gaining the youth. Nicki has passed Kim in the long run and is still defining her brand. Basically, feel out what’s going on around you and see how you can make it work for you. You may have to be a little patient, but hey, when it’s your time… it’s your time. Don’t let a tick-tock go by.
