I mean, for reals for reals, Connor's gotta be one of the best doing right now. On his new tape Season 2, he flips this 80's sample into a meaningful statement of his slow rise in the rap scene, expressing it with a nip-tuck flow that leaves your jaw on the floor and your balls in your ass.
Well this is a really damn weird collaboration mixtape: Yayo the G-Unit excon, Brown the flamboyant shrieky-voiced rapper from the future and three Based God features. Wow. Just, wow. How is this possibly good? This semi-bassless track explains it all. This did come out before Drake aka Sir Aroma Therapy jacked it into a hit single. Plus, a Buju Banton reference is guaranteed to get me aroused.
If youre a racist motherfucker you won't like Madchild, the Canadian rapper who forms one third of Swollen Members and isn't allowed inside the United States. He's white, unabashedly white; his rhymes are intricate and require some really close listening. Having rebounded from a devastating heroin addiction, this song is the first off of an upcoming solo effort. Do yourself a favor and open your ears.
You know, Larry Smith was really one of the best producers of all time. He invented hip-hop drums and gave rise to a generation of beat makers permeating all the way down to, say, Chuck Inglish. This song is really an example of that minimalist boom-bap that gave Run-D.M.C. their edge, and made them great.
