First and foremost let me say Happy New Year to you all and I hope you had a Merry Christmas. You all might have noticed that I didn't post a Top 5 List last week, sorry for that but this little thing called Christmas was going on so I was a little busy but I'm back now. So lets jump into this weeks list shall we.
When I first listen to this song I immediately wish I had dreads. This was an unexpected collab between these two artist and I think the end result was pretty dope. Perfect riding music or dread shaking music in the club. I'm not a huge fan of Gucci but this was put on my iPod fairly fast. And is it me or do you all hear a Chicago drill flow in Gucci verses?
Murph Watkins is an up and coming artist from Chicago that I've been listening to lately. If this is your first time hearing him then you really need to download his EP The Plague that he dropped a few weeks back. Another Chicago MC that we need to be on the lookout for.
If ever there was a recipe to make a song that the streets would like I think this song would be the end result. First you'll need Lil Wayne, then you add a Mike Will Made It beat, sprinkle in a little Drake and Future, then make the song about something that everybody would respect, like "Bitches Love Me." Eat up.
So that's this weeks list and let me say that my riding music playlist has had a good week. So like always feel free to let know your thoughts in the comments section or hit me up on Twitter.
When you look at the names on this track you can't help but get excited about the potential of the song, and I have to say that it lived up to the expectations. All the verses were solid, the production was dope and Kris Stephens sounded great. Make sure to go grab Trouble Man Heavy Is The Head today.
I wasn't the biggest fan of Soul when I first heard him, now every time I hear a new track from him it seems like he's getting colder. TDE has to have the strongest camp right now and Soul is furthering that belief for me right now.
The reason this song made the list this week had nothing to do with song and I want to make sure I put that out there first. The reason I put this song on the list was soley because my name was spelled out in the hook, and I imagined me leaving a club one night and the hook playing as I walked out the door. Call me what you want but everybody wishes they had some sort of theme music or exit music now I do.
I feel like this was probably the most overlooked but cold as hell song from last week. Gemstones take on December 21st and what's to come for the world period I feel like musically came across great. Regardless of what you believe something is happening in the world and shout to Gemstones for speaking on it.
Dido has great taste when it comes to the rappers that she works with, going from the amazing voice that was on Stan with Eminem now featuring Kendrick on her newest single. The song is dope as hell and K-Dot compliment the track perfectly.
That's this week list, as always let me know what you think in the comments or hit me up on Twitter.
Gotta say that this week brought forth a lot of bumpin' records. So strap yourself down and tune in as I rap my week up with this new edition of my #WeekInRaps. Features for the weekend from Young Jeezy, Chief Keef, Wale, Pill, and more. Please enjoy and have a safe and happy weekend y'all. Good luck.
This new Chief Keef has probably gotta be the one jam I've bumped to most this week. Yes I know O boy's lyrics ain't the greatest...but I gotta give it to young dude. Homie knows how to make records that hit. So whether you hate em or love em, you're still bound to hear this one for some time to come in the upcoming weeks. Especially since it features both 50 and Wiz on the track. This version however has no Wiz on it. And I'm not about to go find the version that does for y'all. Simply enjoy what we have to offer or go find that shit yourself.
MMG's Wale and Bad Boy's French Montana are "Back 2 Ballin'" on this new bump which Wale released yesterday, followed by a post from yours truly. Guess this one ended up making the final cut of my #WeekInRaps after all. Must say I found this one to be a straight jam to bump to on our nights out for this upcoming weekend. Enjoy y'all.
It's two weeks in a row for Tity. This week we catch 2 Chainz on a feature for one of Young Jeezy's latest records, "R.I.P.," which comes off snowman's recent collection, It's Tha World. Club swag written all over this one. Figured it was fitting. Also I don't hate it as much as I do many other club anthems.
Two of my favorite MC's out here collaborate for a new jam entitled, "Money Bags." Both Pill and Juicy J deliver hot verses on this one, making it a certified banger and sure in feature on this week's edition of my #WeekInRaps. What'chall think and Who's fuggin' with this one? I'm jammin' over here.
Can't really say I'm all that in tune with Trey's rappin' anymore. I used to think he was decent at one point, then well I guess....I woke up. His feature on this new Red Cafe however wasn't all that bad. I was a bit surprised actually that he came with it the way he did. For sure a strong feature to complement two dope verses from Red Cafe and Fabolous. Who agrees with me...who don't? Chime in!
The Hippie Sabotage production duo is back with another #WeekInRaps appearance. This time it's for their production contribution to Alex Wiley's latest release "Something To Say," which features a killer guest verse from Chicago's own Lil Nikk N9ne. That's two for two from the young up and coming beat makers. If you recall HS was featured on Calez's "B.S.O.A.T.," which made it as the top feature on my first ever edition of #WeekInRaps. Got to say I'm definitely looking forward to hearing more from the duo as well as these young rappers featured here. Look for Alex's #ClubWiley to drop within the oncoming weeks. Enjoy y'all!
This gotta be the illest shit I've heard from Dave Coresh in a while. A young Chicago rapper who's been a bit inconsistent over the past few years, but that's not to take away from homie's talent. The kid can rap. We know that. But I know I and I'm sure several others would love to see a story unfold. Guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens. In the mean time grab this record, "LovE & MonEy," which features Gatz and Chuck L.I. on the track. A Jam coming off THC & Record.Breakers' collaborative compilation entitled, E.L.E.. Look for the project to feature tracks from Tyler The Creator, Kid Cudi, The Boy Illinois, and more!
Hope y'all messin' with my top choices in raps this week. Take these and enjoy yourself a great weekend out. But before you go though...be sure to grab the records below which stand as honorable mentions for this week's #WeekInRaps. Happy Friday homies.
