My WorkI've linked up with Reese Lew from www.reeselew.com back right about the time I posted my last blog. She came at me with an idea for a story/blog that covered the top 5 Hip Hop artist of the past year of 2011, I felt it was a bit late since we were already in March but then I thought about it...it was only right that some real Hip Hip Heads got together and did something like this, fuck the industry...its corrupted anyway. Here is the link to that -> http://reeselew.com/?p=8492. Her site is definitely legit and filled with the latest. Peep that on regular, especially since I'm going to be working with her. I'm so overdue...my b ma..lol.
What's Buzzin & What's to Come
Nas - New album coming soon, the album is called "The Don". One of the newest singles off the album is entitled "Nasty", most definiltey a hit. I can't wait til the album drops. Hip Hop needs this!!
Nicki Minaj - Nicki is buzzin like crazy, but when isn't she? I, myself has gained more respect for her and her music over the past year. Her love for Hip Hop is real and genuine and she pays homage to where it is due, you got to love that. On that note, she recently was on The Breakfast Club and spoke about how she does pay homage and mentioned her new song with Cam'Ron and also expressed how much love she had/has for the Dipset movement. I salute to that!! The song she has with Cam'Ron also features Rick Ross, the song is called "I Am Your Leader".
Nicki also has her song "Beez in the Trap" ft. 2 Chainz which is buzzin like hell! The video was just recently released and speaking for myself, I say its the best video of the year so far, and it's sexy.
2 Chainz - Speaking of this guy, 2 Chainz has made himself known like no other. As far as southern rappers go, no one is grindin harder than this dude. Much respect and his flow is SICK!! "Truuuuu". Check his newest video for his single called "Riot".
The Game - New mixtape out called "California Republic". I haven't heard all of it so far but it's something you just have to plug in and hear out. The Game has a solid flow and can put out hits. The only thing is don't like about his flow is that I feel he can't make a song with out mentioning someone's name or a brand or something of such. I still salute him thought. He has the West on his back.
J. Cole and Diggy Simmons - On April Fools a song called "What You Say To Me" by Diggy Simmons was mysteriously leaked. It is with out a doubt a J. Cole diss track in response to 2 songs called "Purple Rain" and "Grew Up Fast" which were previous released by J. Cole. I was a little confused at first because these songs are over a year old, but once I a heard the interview of Diggy right after the leak, he says himself that "What You Say To Me" was made a year ago and he had no intentions of releasing it but somehow it was leaked, so it is what it. In the song Diggy comes to a defense for his sister Vanessa, who is mentioned in "Purple Rain". Til this day J.Cole hasn't said anything about it, but I'm sure that won't be for long. If there's battle between these two, so be it. I feel it would be good for Hip Hop. If not, oh well, I can't imagine this blowing up into something crazy big. Both artist are still on their way up to the top and both have solid flows. We'll just have to see what happens. Here are the links to these 3 songs.
Kanye West - This dude!! Kanye just recently release his newest single called "Theraflu" and it's probably this hottest song out right now. Kanye spazzes as usual and mentions Wiz, Kim Kardashian, Chris Humphey and Jay-Z in the song. It's definitely at the top of my current playlist. This song is a PROBLEM. Kanye is a movement all by himself. He just recently signed a deal with Louis Vuitton, he has his new shoes coming out soon; the Kanyeezy's. He also has his squad/label G.O.O.D. Music coming out with bangin singles and lets not forget about his album! Kanye is going to be a force to reckoned with this year. Peep "Theraflu"... & also Peep G.O.O.D. Music Big_Sean , Pusha T, 2 Chains & Kanye West) - "Mercy"
Drake - Drake released his newest videos for "HYFR" and "Take Care", both of these songs are on his latest album, "Take Care"...
I conclude here...
