ONLY ILLUMINATI MUSIC! ALL HAIL THE ALL SEEING EYE! IT CREEPS HARD AS A MOTHERFUCKER!
Seriously though, this song is a banger. Jay is still on his old man rap tip, which I guess can’t be avoided any longer (seriously, listen to how wheezy and tired his flow sounds) but this is still a, *ahem* “true radio banger”
Otherwise, sorry for the lack of music updates. Y’know how it is. Winterbreak was mad hectic and I’m getting adjusted to my new schedule (which features a banging Hip-Hop History class. Get like me.) buuut, it’s not like I’ve become deaf or anything. Here’s what I’ve been jamming to (other than the above)
There’s only one thing I love more than rap, and that’s comic books. I was pretty happy when I found those rap album/comic book cover mashups. This is even better. This is Kanye Plus Comics
I’ve been riding some good vibes all day. Let me share them with you.
Here it is folks, the long awaited new release from Kanye West…
Okay, not really. That’d be sick if I did interview Yeezy though, wouldn’t it?
Kanye gave a pretty dope interview on Q102 this morning which I caught the tail end of as I was driving to school. As always, Kanye manages to somehow be both insightful and an asshole at the same time.
Give it a listen if you’ve got the time.
PS: I promise I’ll be back with your regularly scheduled dose of ill as soon as I get my shit together (I’ve been slacking on my music game mad hard)
I’m definitely tryna throw up a review for the new Cudi disc as soon as I listen to it.
Be easy ya’ll.
What’s really hood people? Sorry there’s been a lack of updates this week, been busy with school, working like a dog for Philly Weekly. Not really, that gig’s been chill, had to do a bit of a flyer safari today which would’ve been better if it wasn’t so hot, but all in all enjoyed it. I rarely ever go down to South Street because everyone always wants to go in the Spring and Summer when it’s filled with assholes. South Street on a weekday in the Fall is perfect.
Now, let’s get to some new music, shall we?
So it’s finally here, the remix of Justin Bieber’s “Runaway Love” featuring Raekwon and Kanye West….and…yeah.
This isn’t the future we wanted.
Let me just put this out (in case it was in doubt) – Kanye and Raekwon come fucking hard on this track, and it’s helped even more by the fact that Kanye used a sample from the classic “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthin To Fuck Wit.” That whole bit is great, it really is, it’s just the fucking Bieber I can’t get over.
I’m not going to sit here and wantonly knock the little Canuck. I legitimately have no beef with him, he can keep doing his thing because for the most part it doesn’t intersect into my daily life. But right now it is so I’m gonna have to escalate just a little bit.
I’ve been mad slow on my music tip these past few days with packing for school and what not. But here’s the newest track from the busy Kanye West. “Monster” features Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj and Bon Iver. I’ve only listened to it a few times, but it’s pretty good and Kanye continues to impress, garnering more hype for his next album slated to drop in September. Also, Nicki Minaj straight up murders this track.
Found this over at Blameaspartame and I’m pretty sure I’m in love, which feels comparatively better than feeling like dying. I’ve been feeling like shit since Saturday and it seems that I might have a ragweed allergy. My hands and feel itch so bad they feel like they’re on fire and my throat is as dry as the desert. Pray for me.
You know what didn’t help me feel better? 50 Cent’s terrible remix to Cee-lo’s amazing “Fuck You.” He only spits for the first minute or so, and it’s painfully obvious listening to Curtis stumble over his words that he really wishes he was a better rapper. Jump below the cut and give it a listen, hope your ears don’t bleed.
So here’s the last serving of fresh tracks for the day. If you follow along here at the Experiment, you probably know that I usually don’t cover hip-hop. Not that I dislike hip-hop or am incapable of writing about it, I just see it more fit for me to differ to Jules and Andy on the subject, they do know the genre a good deal better than I do. But I just couldn’t help myself from posting these two tracks that just hit the web within the last 24 hours.
First up is Cee-Lo’s new track “Fuck you”. Though it’s much more along the lines of a funky soul song, it’s still from Cee-Lo, who is a rapper. Cee-Lo posted it on his own youtube channel, promising a full video next week, with a single on sale October 4th. “Fuck You” is slated to be on Cee-Lo’s upcoming album The Lady Killer.
Last night Kanye dropped a remix of “Power” featuring Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz. I like a lot of Kanye’s music and I think that his super ego thing is mad entertaining and interesting. This remix here is a certified banger and is sure to help you start your weekend off right.
Don’t give stupid, drunk people you don’t know psychedelics. Please. Lars and Trev are lucky bastards for not having to deal with that mess on ice. Still, party was pretty fun.
I went to the Hard Rock Cafe last night (pre-gaming for the party, I guess) and met with an old friend of my older brother, Duce Blunt. He’s Public Enemies bus driver.
Tequila and Tonics are only good when I make them.
There’s no reason to smoke a pack and a half of Newports in a night.
Some of my favorite artists (Weezy, Cud & Kanye) all decided to drop new singles this week. Here’s the rundown:
