Go girl :). Chicago stand up, Cal City stand up, Tink is in the building and she’s so Chi :) unfortunately my interview with Tink never worked out in 2013, but it’s a new year and she’s in a new place and I’m glad to say I’ve been able to watch her growth as an artist. Check her out on the latest edition of The Breakfast Club in New York Power 105.1
The boss. In honor of All Star weekend, Rick Ross dropped an MMG 2015 All Star Mixtape which features a hot verse he added to Tyga and Chris Brown‘s latest single “Ayo” off their Fan of a Fan 2 tape. As expect the big boss puts his on spice on the track with an opening verse that does not disappoint. Shoutout to Ricky Rozay for always keeping shit fresh!

Free Gucci. Though ATL’s own Gucci Mane is currently incarcerated, he’s still one of the hottest rappers out. The smartest thing he could ever do is record several unreleased hits which he’s done in the past to keep him on our radar. Today, we hear some new Gucci featuring Young Scooter and Bankroll Fresh simply titled “Fuck That Bitch”. I would give y’all an idea of exactly what the song is about, but, the name is pretty self explanatory. This track will be featured on Gucci‘s upcoming mixtape Sour Diesal 18.

6ixgod. OVO head honcho Drake continues to prove himself to be one of the greatest of all time. Just 2 days before Valentines Day, the Canadian heart throb releases and unexpected album titled If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. On Instagram, Drake referred to it as a mixtape, but the tape cannot be found anywhere online, but itunes for purchase only. There’s nothing better than some new Drake because as he constantly reminds us in his raps, there’s no beat he can’t kill. With references to classics like Ginuwine‘s “So Anxious” and The Roots & Erykah Badu‘s “You Got Me” these instrumentals and lines are pure firee. The album is trending on every social media site and if you scroll down your timeline, you’re sure to see plenty of references to everyone’s new favorite project. All I can do is give thanks to the 6ix god because I look forward to any and every track Drake is featured on.
Some tracks to look out for: “Energy”, “Know Yourself”, “10Bars”, “Star67″, and plenty more, trust me, Drake does not disappoint.

Jet Life or no lifee. It’s always a pleasure to hear and see new things from Curren$y, and this time he’s got a new video for us. The visual to “Cargo Planes” produced by Joey Fatts, shows Spitta in his usual attire, a fitted cap, something comfortable and cool, and the signature Adidas shell toes. The gear head is scene from many different angles rapping about his lifestyle and it’s all directed by Understream Films. This track will be featured on Curren$y‘s upcoming album Pilot Talk III
Saul good. Atlanta hot boy Young Thug is my absolute favorite out of the Peach State right now. Today we have a new track from him made in reference to one of Atlanta’s greatest, Gucci Mane on his birthday. The track is appropriately titled “Free Gucci”. As we all know, Gucci has been incarcerated for quite sometime and we’re all eagerly awaiting his return to the rap scene. Along with his reference to the Trap God, Thugger also gives shoutsout to Chief Keef, Lil Durk and their 300 movement. Not surprising since Atlanta and Chicago are definitely dominating the music scene right now. It’s nice to see Thugger making a track without Rich Homie Quan and that god awful whining he does on every track. Stick to this and I’m with you all the way :)

Enough is enough! Ace Hood is coming for everything he thinks he deserves with his newest track “No More Mr. Nice Guy”. The video dropped today and goddamn, a nice visual to go with this banger. The beat originally belonged to A$AP Rocky, but Ace Hood freestyled over it and has claimed it as his own. The flow is a little Meek Mill to me, but I love the song. It seems he’s back in an old neighborhood involving the residence in the video, giving them a little piece of the fame.
From one Ace to another, I love it!
