Wayne will be hitting us w C4 before too long (2011- undetermined) and a preview of the treat that’s its sure to be is (hopefully) typified on 6’7′, featuring Cory Gunz- who himself puts down some legit and praiseworthy bars. Naturally reminiscent of A Milli (also produced by Bangladesh) and all the more energized, this dreadfully glorious track allows Wayne to present the flare that confirms his upcoming release is worthy of any and all associated build up. Goes SO hard. 5 stars.
To further illustrate the wonderousness that is chainsaw, I present the following pair of examples:
1) Hands Up, Lay Down. The name should say it all but ’cause you can read and listen simultaneously (press play below), I’ll briefly expound. A certified veteran in the hip hop game, Twista has commingled that smooth Chi spit w/the growling ferocity of young Wacka Flocka in a most befitting manner. Thanks for the collabo gents.
(forgive the continual advertisements for the Perfect Storm, still lookin’ for a better version- but that beat!!)
2) Back with another taste of the heat he delivered on Teflon Don, Mr. Ross teams with an invigorated and seemingly re-energized T.I. who is determined to express his kingliness. Bang it.
Changing gears entirely, let us revel in a fantastic remix of Chromeo’s Hot Mess. Elly Jackson’s vocals are especially haunting and I’m yet to become even slightly weary of this beat, despite my attempts…. Here’s to thinking you’ll agree:
Recently to appear on my radar (and if it’s not new to you ’why haven’t you shared!?’) is an indie band out of NYC- The Virgins. Their beautifully funky beats- reminiscent of something off The Wall- innovative vocals, and well chosen lyrics almost force the listener to enjoy and share lead singer Donald Cumming’s apparent suffering. This is a jam, fasho.
And while I’m at it, my new favorite album has been crowned- The Drums’ self titled debut is just terrific. If you don’t have it yet, fear not, there is still time. Go now.
