Ahhh, another weekend of slowly killing my liver. Hope the boogie went down for everyone last night…. Drama’s hip-hop review LETS GO!!
So I’m kinda mad I slept on this. This dude K’Naan is actually pretty talented. Think the reason I never checked his shit out is because I’d always see one of his bullshit ass facebook ads and just got mad bout them cause I hate every ad on facebook that isn’t for hot singles or dating or some other bullshit I signed up for then got mad because it wasn’t free and there were not hot beeches on it… but I digress. Check this out, he got the help out from non other than Chubb Rock (Treat em Riiiiight).
Also check out Chubb Rock and Wordsmith’s Old 2 the New. Pretty ill Matrix concept even though it looks like I filmed and edited it (lol @ Chubb Rock slappin Agent Smith lookin boy). Kinda interested in this Bridging the Gap album they got set to drop in June.
If you liked our recap of the Wale show from a couple weeks ago, check out our boy Bender’s adventures at Wale’s Attention Deficit tour in Detroit….. and yes, his 1928 Delta did get him to the Shelter. Too bad he didn’t catch the show at the Majestic Theater, I would have loved to have seen Drake and Big Sean on stage with Wale. Notice how Chi town is all about Jugrnauts, Leaders, MTTM and what not and out in Detroit its just Ice Creams and BBC. The murda mitten needs to step it up.
Onyx is back? Well to tell you the truth, they never left. Since 92 they’ve been doing their thang without so much as a break. They kicked mainstream in the dick when they dropped Slam in 93 (I’m sure you all remember that shit) but that was the peak of their mainstream success. Mainstream has never been their thing though; they started out and will always be an underground group, pretty much the definition of underground. They dropped records in 93, 95, 98, 03 and what I assume to be Black Rock coming out this year. Staying busy with that, doin shows and callin 50 Cent a bitch ass trick. Check out the 1st single from the new album, its no Last Dayz but Sticky does come with that raw on it.
Check out what will soon be my theme music. The Motions by Nickelus F, yeah that dude who sounds a lot like Saigon on all those Drake tracks. Truth is, dude’s the truth, been around forever. Check out Go Time comin out next week. Wake up, eat, make money, eat, go to bed…. repeat.
The latest Mike Posner citing was at the University of
Fuck Dayton. Wish I could get famous and have people sing my songs then show up at their parties and get all the white womens.
