How better to start it off than the new track that dropped this week from the Cudder and a D2D favorite, the homie Chip Tha Ripper. If your memory serves you correctly, which I doubt it does you short-term-memory-losing mothafuckas, Chip was the only artist featured twice in our 4/20 MEGAPOST, and rightfully so, as homie’s music just goes well with smokin chiba. It’s a fact of life. Without further ado, peep some of the Hip-Hop I’ve been listening to lately.
1) All Talk- Kid Cudi & Chip Tha Ripper
Minimalistic beat allows the two fantastic lyricists to impress their own styles upon the cut. These guys love to play off of each other’s energy, as is indicative by their other collabos (Ask About Me and Hyerr being my two favorites). This track is no different. Playful, witty, and catchy as fuck.
1) Spotlight (Feat Killa Kyleon)- Wiz Khalifa
Wiz selling out a SUNDAY show at The Majestic is a testament to his rapid rise to prominence. This jam, off of his latest mixtape, Kush and Orange Juice, I’ve had on blast for the past week or two. It’s not really the beat that gets me with this song. It’s def Wiz’s verses. They are tight. Also, homie utters one of my favorite lines ever, “This Weed goes good with my belt.” Classic.
3)I Like Dreaming-Smoke DZA
Mickey Factz put me on to Smoke DZA right when Substance Abuse dropped and I’ve been loving it ever since. This track is super dreamy.
4)Time Machine (feat Cory Gunz)-Smoke DZA
The best nostalgia track since Wu Tang’s “Can it Be All So Simple” And that’s saying something. Cory Gunz is the man too.
I’ve realized that Wiz Khalifa’s formula for success hinges upon how Loveable of a character he is, his lanky, disarming physique, his obsession with ganj, and his surprisingly pleasant singing voice.
1)The Kid Frankie- Wiz Khalifa
I have just finished listening through Kush & O.J, And have decided that this is my favorite track. It has a beat stripped from the late 80’s/early 90’s urban music movement, a carefree, swagged-out subject matter, and chorus vocals reminiscent of Pharrell in one of my all-time favorite songs, “Tape You”. I believe the vocals even follow the same progression. This is a tremendous hip-hop song though on the whole and deserves a listen.
