Hip hop legend LL Cool J hops on Kid Ink’s “Main Chick” featuring LL Cool J, Chris Brown & Tyga, and you have Kevin Hart to thank for that! The story goes, funny man Kevin Hart was live on DJ Whoo Kid’s “Whoolywood Shuffle” on Shade 45 and when asked which MC he wanted to hear first in the celebrity guest-mix, his answer was “LL Cool J’s I Need Love.”  This brought Whoo to reach out and dare LL live on the air to write a verse to Kid Ink’ single. 3o Minutes later, LL sent over his verse and the remix was played live on the air, proving that the veteran still has it! This is a must listen!

Hip-Hop | Ludacris – Party Girls ft. Wiz Khalifa, Jeremih, & Cashmere Cat

Interesting to say the least, but this song is a guaranteed banger. Flipping the “barbie girl” theme that Miguel sings with Cashmere Cat’s production on this song works perfectly. A pretty good intro verse by Ludacris as well as a quality verse from Wiz make this song a must listen. Peep it below.

Hip-Hop, Playlists | Jeff’s 15 Best Hip-Hop Tracks of 2013

Posted by on December 23, 2013

Best-Of---hip-hop---big With the mainstream sound shifting further towards hip-hop (or is it the other way around?) the way it has in 2013, it’s become quite a good climate for rappers. While this year has had its share of successes and rises to fame (see Chance The Rapper, Logic), though, it’s certainly had its share of disappointments. Read on to see my selections as the year’s best work in hip-hop.

Pop, RnB | Justin Bieber – Confident (Ft. Chance The Rapper)

Posted by on December 9, 2013

Chance the Rapper and Justin Bieber together on a track is now a thing. The two have joined forces to go in on this absolute ladies anthem. Smoother than a baby’s bottom, Bieber’s vocals steal the show and show his maturation as an artist especially with enlisting talent such as Chance the Rapper for a feature. Chance’s verse is a perfect way to let the world know who he is. He dropped a great verse but made sure it was Bieber’s spotlight.

Hip-Hop | SD – Overdose (ft. RiFF RaFF)

Posted by on November 28, 2013

The last time GBE and RiFF RAFF got on a track together, it was for Chief Keef and Jody Highroller’s “Cuz My Gear”, which was an instant classic. Now we have one of Chief Keef’s best buddies doing a song with Mr. Highroller. Overdose is a trap banger in which both SD and RiFF RAFF profess their love to all assortments of drugs in the song. Laugh all you want but I think RiFF RAFF killed his verse and for SD…we’ll just forget his part. Peep the WSHH player above and prepare to either laugh, shake your head in disbelief, and or both.

Bass, Hip-Hop, Techno | Brodinski & Beat King – 5 Years

“These mollies are gonna kill you in five years. But it ain’t five years right now, so mix this shit with codeine, and jump.”

This patently absurd and not totally surprising lyric is what happens when you, ahem, mix a Parisian tech house don (and noted leather shorts enthusiast) with a looming presence on the Texas club scene. Brodinski’s borderline anthropologic fascination with Southern rap culture is no secret, and in “5 Years” we see it out in full force. The formula here is simple: Beat King lays the perversely catchy verse, Brodinski delivers a menacing wallop of sub bass, and the rest, as they say, is dance floor history. Free download so scoop it up.

Chill, Hip-Hop, Rap, RnB | Scolla – Peace

Posted by on October 22, 2013

scolla - peace

Clocking in at two minutes, thirty-two seconds, my initial reaction to Scolla’s “Peace” was: “I want more!” The soulful hip-hop track pulls you in with soothing vocals that you hope never leave your ears, and keeps you interested when Scolla’s deep and choppy verse appears.

Like many of us, Scolla asks for peace and love. A message clearly reflected in his music within the subtle tones and gentle lyrics. I highly recommend giving “Peace” a listen, as well as perusing the rest of Scolla’s RLES crew. The album OG Cool is on the way, so be sure to check back in for that.

Enjoy!
