It has been a phenomenal week of music, especially Hip Hop.
J. Cole released some Soul via his Twitter this week. A sample from David Ruffin circa 1969 “Double Cross,” with some kicks, snares and lyrics that bring Hip Hop back down to earth.
Wiz dropped a free track via Twitter. Gorillaz enlisted 3 Stacks and James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) for a promotional track for Limited Edition Chucks. Rihanna and Chris Brown both buried the hatchet and hopped on each other’s remixes. Odd Future released a new single for the upcoming project The Odd Future Tape Vol. 2 due out March 20.
Nicki Minaj silenced the critics about being “soft” with her latest single. I highly doubt Sophia Grace’s mom will let here cover this one.
Santigold dropped a fantastic single this week with great instrumentation and another one of her addictive beats. The upcoming project Master Of My Make-Believe is expected May.
Chilled out productions from Ryan Tedder and Dot Da Genius for Bobby Ray and WizardCud.
Deep and driving house track sure to take you on an adventure. Check out his Soundcloud
“It’s Cole, it’s only right I brought back the soul
Y’all got way too electro, damn near techno
Halfway homo, way too metro
Hennesy XO, Cole flow special
Style like Tribe Called Quest meets Death Row
Learn somethin boy, grow yo ass up”
