New Drake EP

Last night, Drizzy Drake released an EP, Scary Hours, which comprises of two tracks.

 

The first song, “God’s Plan,” has all the aspects of a Drake song that you’d expect. The second, “Diplomatic Immunity,” has more of an orchestral vibe to it. I’m not a huge fan of Drake because he usually doesn’t put much thought into his lyrics, but “Diplomatic Immunity” pleasantly surprised me. It’s basically four and a half minutes of Drake venting over a well-made instrumental.

New Russ Track “Alone”

Russ is kicking off the new year the right way. After releasing a new music video last week for “Flip” (which I wasn’t a fan of), Russ comes through with another track. This time, the song’s production was handled by frequent collaborator, Scott Storch.

The retro, 80’s, synthesizer euro-pop style instrumental pairs perfectly with Russ’s signature vocals creating a sort of etherial electronic pop sound.

Dave East Releases “Paranoia 2”

After much anticipation, Harlem rapper, Dave East, comes through with the sequel to his Paranoia project.

 

Last year, he released Paranoia: A True Story. Three months later, he gave us another mixtape, titled Karma. This year, Dave East’s keeping the momentum going by dropping Paranoia 2 (along with announcing an accompanying tour).

 

The album features appearances from Tory Lanez, T.I., Lloyd Banks, and many more. I definitely think this is his strongest project yet. Standout tracks include “Talk to Big”, “Corey”, “Thank You”, “What Made Me”, “Never Been”, and “Grateful” (although some other songs were amazing too). East’s harsh vocals and fantastic storytelling ability remind me of legends like 50 Cent and Game.

New 6ix9ine Music Video

New video for 6ix9ine’s new song “KEKE” featuring A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie & Fetty Wap… I thought I’d seen it all until I realized what 6ix9ine actually looked like. Now, I’ve seen everything.

Yesterday, I wrote an article about the worst fashion statements in hip hop… I’d like to add 6ix9ine to the list, please.

What do you think of 6ix9ine?

New Song From “Black Panther” Soundtrack

Last week, we heard the first single from TDE’s upcoming Black Panther soundtrack, titled “All the Stars”. Now, we have the second pre-order track from the project. “King’s Dead” features Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Future, and James Blake. 

 

I’m excited to see what other collaborations will be on this project. With a budget this big, TDE and Marvel Studios can probably afford a featured verse from any artist they want.

 

Listen to “King’s Dead” below:

 

What collaboration tracks would you like to see on the upcoming tape?

My fingers are still crossed for a Black Hippy track.

Music video production like this just doesn’t exist anymore… It’s a shame.
