Albums | Young Money Yawn – Lost Scriptures (Mixtapes)

Posted by on March 4, 2014


The DMV has made quite a statement recently with new talent springing up right and left. The influx of new musicians to watch certainly doesn’t stop with Young Money Yawn. The 20 year old emcee takes on a more “street” side of Virginia, and speaks about his come up over a variety of different production styles.

Those who follow the DMV hip-hop scene closely might recognize the Board of Administration’s, Black Cobaine feature, amongst others. The tape is packed with eighteen original songs as well as a few bonus tracks, and aside from the speaking interludes getting a bit repetitive, the project is a very strong body of work.

Hip-Hop, Rap | Chanel West Coast – Own World

Posted by on February 12, 2014

Chanel West Coast, whom you might recognize from MTV’s Fantasy Factory, is undeniably a grade-A bad bitch. Keeping up with her trending #WestCoastWednesday tradition, she uploaded a free download, this week titled “Own World.” It’s more laidback compared to some of her more recent stuff but I’m digging it: I imagine this as the kind of track to play when driving through the city at sunset with the windows down, feeling empowered, or on the contrary when the night is coming to an end and I’m at the after party with my whole crew kickin’ back before tapping out. Try it out and see for yourself.


Hip-Hop | Drake – 5AM In Toronto (prod. by Boi-1da)

Posted by on March 7, 2013


Allow me to preface this post by saying, everybody is entitled to their own opinion as am I. Drake goes viral regardless of any blog so why not take this opportunity to share my thoughts. As the clock strikes 5AM here in Toronto, I don’t like this track. ”5AM In Toronto” bleeds pints of emotion, it’s got mad lyricism, and I get all that. I’m not even saying that I have something opposed to what we have here. I just don’t feel like I know what’s good anymore, and to be perfectly honest; I don’t think you do either. Everyone is starving for nutriance, and these organic vocal dosages give us life. Staring through the mirror into an artist’s life makes us feel like we have a friend, and because of this I’m usually sufficing thoughts like ‘Who is this guy talking to‘. We like hearing voices, and if that sounds crazy, well… yes it is. Anyways, I think this is what we’ve all been waiting for so allow me to contradict myself, my name is W8!

Late last night Young Money’s own Drake followed up his earlier smash hit ”Started From The Bottom” with more heat entitled ”5AM In Toronto”. The way Drake manages to feature on his own track is remarkable. His third studio album is presumably set to drop this summer.

Hip-Hop | Lil Wayne – Ghoulish (Pusha T Diss)

Posted by on May 25, 2012

For those of you that live under a rock, or just don’t keep up to date on hip-hop beef. A few days ago Pusha T released a song with a few obvious slams at YMCMB. The YMCMB captain decided to make it a full on battle by releasing this monster track that absolutely destroys Pusha T’s version after listening and analyzing both tracks, Pusha’s version kicks Wayne’s ass, although, at first listen Wayne wins because of his flow, Pusha T’s lyricism and actual slams at YMCMB are too tough. I know, Lil Wayne has fallen off, but the man can still ride a beat, and he still has a few good verses left in him. Sound of in the comments section or engage us on twitter to let us know what you think of this new beef. Publicity stunt? Real? All fun and games? Peep Wayne’s diss below and Exodus under that one. After all, What’s Beef?

Hip-Hop | Birdman ft. Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne – Y.U. Mad

Posted by on September 8, 2011

Just when you thought Young Money couldn’t get anymore annoying, they go ahead and drop a track titled Y.U. Mad. I got to hand it to Birdman, between his son coming off “milli” week, and all the drama with Jay-Z, he dropped this track with good timing. As far as the song itself goes, it’s the first leak off Birdman’s upcoming album, Bigger Than Life, which is due out November 22nd. Despite how average this track is, don’t be alarmed when this gets some radio time, given teenage America’s obsession with Young Money.

Hip-Hop | Birdman Bets a Milli on the Packers | Hip-Hop

Posted by on February 6, 2011

Birdman is probably the gaudiest rapper to walk the earth…. but maybe I’m just mad cause this puts my $50 bet to shame. Whats up with Young Money being all for Green Bay now? Anyway this song has to be one of the best things I’ve heard from 50 in a long time. The hard lyrics really remind me of that old 50 that we know and loved. What do you guys think?

50 Cent – When It All Goes Down Freestyle

I’m really liking K.O. Kid’s flow on this track. If you want to hear more, download his mixtape for free here.
