Serial beefer Chris Brown has released a verse on Chicagoan newcomer Chief Keef dissing fellow light-skinned singer/rapper Drake. At first, I thought it was allegedly about Mr. Graham but he cleared that up for listeners with lines like: “matter of fact take care bruh“, “one on one; you scared nigga” and even went in on the rapper/singer’s eyebrows after complimenting the rest of Young Money. He even dissed OVO (“OVO? you overdose”) while he was at it. What do you think of Breezy’s diss? Snap attack or wack?
Singer and reknown artist Lana Del Rey takes artistry and creativity up a notch with the release of the National Anthem official video starring A$AP Rocky. I’m a newcomer to her music/personality so you can imagine my shock when I saw A$AP working with an artist like Lana. I was even more shocked when I realized that Rocky was starring as the president, while Lana played the role of Jackie O. Stylistic, revolutionary, and very well-done. Watch below. Worth 7:39 of life to watch: most def.
Newest single off of rapper, activist and revolutionary Lupe Fiasco’s newest project Food and Liquor 2, a much anticipated follow-up to his debut album Food and Liquor. In the same way that Nas‘
Nigger album caused controversy but actually has positive content, B*tch Bad attracts the same attention while displaying a positive and empowering message. I met Lupe last year and I must say dude is a genius. Take a listen for yourselves below.
Wonderful visuals from Christian emcee Trip Lee. With a style similar to T.I.’s, (full of a strong Southern accent and smooth but hard-hitting lyricism) Fallin is a different song and video for Trip. Check it out below and let me know what you think. If you like what you heard, be sure to check out his most recent album The Good Life on iTunes.
People are finally starting to get hip to this talented Cali emcee. Cosigned by Kendrick Lamar and gaining popularity with hard-hitting lyricism on Hands on the Wheel and Blessed, Schoolboy Q is emerging as an artist to watch out for in years to come. See if you can keep up with his triple entendres for three minutes.
