Happy Birthday Money! Ty Money celebrates his 24th birthday with his new tape Turn Up Godhosted by DJ Bandz, DJ Twin, and DJ Victorious of the We Mean Biz conglomerate. The tape contains quite a few features from Chicago’s own Chin Chilla Meek. Other features include Chief Keef, Cap1 and King Louie. I know Ty Money is in his Glo today as all eyes are on the Turn Up God. He successfully built anticipation for this tape with such tracks as “No Hobby”, “Kalifornia” and “OG Larry Hoover”; I know it feels good to sit back and watch the world enjoy something you’ve worked hard to produce.

Gone with your bada$$! Just as the Kendrick responses are dying down, Brooklyn bad boy, Joey Bada$$ takes the mic with his Killuminati Pt.2, where he states that Kendrick is more like the Prince of Bel air than the King of New York. Now, I never quite understood why Kendrick‘s Californian ass would say that he’s the king of New York, somebody had to speak up about it. Plenty of rappers out of New York took the time to address Kendrick‘s claim to the throne, but this is the only one–the only response period–that I took the time to listen to. What does that tell y’all? Joey confidently states that he embodies all of the greats out of New York: Biggie, Big L, Big Pun…all the big niggas, Nas, etc. And that he does it for them. A true New York native. I’ll let this slight diss slide, but you can’t be dissing my Kendrick on the regular and expect me not to feel some type of way!
Much respect to my badass Joey
King Hov. This week, rap legend Jay-Z chose Facebook as the stage on which to release the visuals for “Holy Grail”, featuring Justin Timberlake, off his most recent album Magna Carta Holy Grail. I have heard mixed responses from those that have watched the video, but personally, I like it. The visuals are cool, and, though I don’t quite understand all of the symbolism through out, it’s very grown, not too over the top–which we expect from Jay-Z. Mr. Carter wears stunning gold watch which compliments a single, thick gold chain he is donning atop a crisp black dress shirt and pants: classy. JT brings the passion we hear over the hook to life; these two are a great team!
Do y’all like the video, or nah? VOTE!
Haters gone hate *Kanye shrug*. If there’s one rapper I believe to be (or have once been) about that life, it’s Pusha T. He has no problem telling stories of growing up in the streets, but now that he’s in the rap game, it’s time to celebrate his progression. This week, the G.O.O.D Music lyricist released “Sweet Serenade” featuring the my light skinned bae, Chris Brown. Young Push is feeling good, as Brown suggest a champagne toast in the hook, he deserves all that he’s worked for. The Clipse rapper has made it from the bottom through hard work and dedication. “Sweet Serenade” heightens the anticipation for Pusha T‘s solo album My Name Is My Name which is scheduled to be released on October 8th. After the positive feedback on his last tape Wrath of Cane, the success speaks for itself.
Must feel good!
L’s Up! One of the first tracks I heard from Lil’ Durk was L’s Anthem; that was years ago. Now, the anthem is back with the remix featuring French Montana. The video was shot in Chicago, and, yes you guessed it, video production done by Zae. I don’t like the remix better than the original, probably because I’m not a big French Montana fan, but it’s still the anthem. Durk stands proudly next to Coke Boys CEO, who is responsible for the merge of Durk‘s OTF movement with Coke Boys, holding his adorable son Lo Lo, surrounded by all types of love and support from his squad.
Two words. Not much to say about this one; Yo Gotti calls on dream chaser Meek Mill for the remix to his track “Fuck You”. This Labor Day, Yo Gotti will be dropping his tape Nov 9th, which will preceed his upcoming EP I Am, which drops November 19th. The message of the song is pretty simple, so I don’t think I need to break it down for y’all too much, but one thing to note is Gotti‘s use of auto-tune. The auto-tune is used sparingly, as his verse, and ad libs are made using his crisp vocals, the auto-tune is used on only a few background phrases or words. It’s the perfect dash of the auto-tune. We don’t need everybody taking the Chief Keef, Future route.
Eerie. Detroit’s dirty boy, Danny Brown, dropped a video for his track “ODB” which is to be featured on his upcoming album OLD. The album is supposed to have been released already, but is now set to debut on September 30th. The video has only one shot, with a simple color scheme of green, and yellow. Danny‘s face is being distorted as he stares emotionlessly into the camera. Some don’t get Danny Brown and his unique style, as it is an acquired taste, but one thing’s for sure, his originality behind his sound and style are 110% his own.
The countdown continues! Anyone who follows my Twitter or Instagram (@acealmighty__) knows that I have been waiting for the day that BMG’s Young Scooter is released from jail. With only 8 days of his sentence left, Young Scooter has dropped a tape: From The Cell Block To Your Block. The tape was released with good timing, giving Scooter enough time to get out jail, and jump right back into the studio, while we still have these new songs in our heads. SOME OF THESE SONGS ARE RECYCLED. But the tape features authentic phone calls from Scooter in jail full of shout outs, and appreciation for his fans. One thing I don’t understand about the tape is the change in his voice that has him sounding like a child. But, I love me some Scooter, so I’ll continue to listen.
Listen to Young Scooter “Caught Up In The Streets” featuring Future.
Loud asses. This week, Ace Hood put out a video for his track, “Before The Rollie”, featuring MMG‘s Meek Mill. The song dropped, ironically, after Ace Hood‘s watch fell apart on the B.E.T Awards’ red carpet. The song is cool, I like the beat, and I like the verses, but one thing that tends to turn me off from Meek Mill is the way he screams when he raps. Now you got him on the track with Ace Hood‘s loud ass, and they’re just two yelling mfs. Besides that, these two KILL the track. The lyricism is there, driving home everyone’s favorite theme of “back then the didn’t want me….” y’all know the rest. Ace Hood takes us back to his old stopping grounds, and tells us about life “Before The Rollie”.
It’s about time! Last April, Big K.R.I.T. dropped his King Remembered In Time mixtape which included a snippet for his track “Just Last Week”, featuring Future. The snippet had a wanted more, but after so much time had past, we had no idea when the full version would drop! Well, wait no longer, the full version of “Just Last Week” dropped this Wednesday, and it’s catchy. Future is in full auto-tune as he covers the second half of the hook and closing verse. K.R.I.T‘s bouncy Southern flow makes for a good back and forth between him and Future on the hook.
Worth the wait :p
Cash out Mouse! Yeah, y’all might have thought he had faded to the background after being featured on Lil’ Wayne‘s last Dedication tape, but Lil’ Mouse is still working. This week, he’s on a shopping spree in his “Neiman Marcus” video, directed by Soundman, in downtown Chicago. Mouse is prepping for the release of his new album Michael Mouse Myers. There really is no reason for this little boy to be dropping an album already, hopefully I read that wrong and this is a tape. Either way, whether you know it or not, he has a decent following and a supportive fan base. Regardless of age, you can’t knock the hustle!
Ay-yi-yi. We’re used to seeing Wiz Khalifa on a track with his right hand Juicy J; not this time around. This week, Juicy J‘s old friend Project Pat is featuring Wiz on his new track “Chiefin”. The song is catchy. As a whole, it sounds like something we might here from Juicy J and Wiz. Project Pat‘s flow, and content are very similar to that of Juicy J. This comparison can likely be attributed to the many projects the two have worked on in the past, but it’s cool to see Wiz showing them both love, especially on a track called “Chiefin”
Whole $tain or No $tain. 17 year old Chicago new comer Lucki Eck$ has built a little buzz for himself, beginning with the release of his Alternative Trap mixtape this past July. There’s something unique about this kid, and now, he’s teaming up with The Village’s Monster Mike for this new track “Whole Stain”. The song, produced by Plu2o Nash, is definitely something to ride and smoke to. Monster Mike starts things off with his usual cocky flow staying “Mike than a bitch” setting the stage for Lucki to finish out strong. These two work very well together, as we saw with Lucki‘s “48th-49th”, so be on the look out for more music from both of them, as Monster Mike preps for the release of his upcoming mixtape, Mike Effect, and Lucki builds on the buzz he’s already created, to leave us wondering what’s next.
