Ok so I know I said I was going to be doing my Top 5 songs of the week every Tuesday but things were kind of heavy the past two days but I'm back on top of my game. I'm still going to be using the same time frame of Monday to Moday so that I not cheating. So that being said lets get into it.
I really like the vibe that I got from this song when I first heard it on Fabolous The Soul Tape. It was real chill but at the same time I was still able to give a strong head nod. Minus Fab the song is still pretty dope.
So every song that Big Boi has released leading up to Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors has made its way to my Top 5 songs list and this one is no different. I really rock with this beat, Big Boi killed his verses as he usually does, and Cudi really sounded like the Cudi from his first album which was the best Cudi to me.
First I want to give a shout out to Jamie Foxx for the production. This beat is crazy and I honestly would never expect this from Jamie Foxx. Rick Ross complimented the beat very well and made the overall song that much better. Looking forward to hearing the entire soundtrack.
This is my curve ball of the week. I not really into much of the "Drill" music but when I heard this it sounded more like it meant something to Durk. He wasn't just rapping over the beat but instead telling the personal story of Lil Durk. Need more like this from him.
This is the song that I probably only listen to when I'm driving my car or after a few drinks in the club. I have to be in a certain mood to really enjoy this but when I'm in that mood this will be my shit.
So that this week Top 5. Sorry about the delay and as always feel free to comment. Two fingers to the side.

It's a Santana thing on this NEW(ish) cut from GBE's Fredo Santana, which features Dipset's Juelz Santana. This one's a trunk bangin' bump for all my g's out here who wanna keep sh*t turnt. Gotta give the uperhand to Juelz on this one for a very clean verse. Good job all around gents.

Look out for the new movie written and directed by Quentin Tarentino this Christmas: Django Unchained - the premise surrounding a slave turned bounty hunter out to rescue his wife from a Mississippi plantation. As you'd expect with Tarentino, an all-star cast follows, including Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz (he better play the evil plantation owner), Leonardio DiCaprio (he's famous), Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson !!!!!!! (his name should permanently have exclaimation marks attached at the end).
As you can also see above, the soundtrack will have a tracklist littered with some big names in urban music, featuring a mix of James Brown's "The Payback" and 2Pac's "Untouchable" and new music from Rick Ross and John Legend.
