She premiered this video at her Outer Limits EP listening/release party last night and everyone in attendance approved. Of course, there is more where this came from. You can purchase Outer Limits via IndiaShawn.com right now.
Never fuck with a nigga who got some kids
‘Cause when you talk about me
Then you talk about them
Then I gotta come where you live
You takin’ food out they mouth
Now I gotta put a fist in yours
I don’t play about my hustle
A nigga got all these acres
All my neighbors think I’m flipping them birds
Towards the end of the B.o.B cover story I wrote for Creative Loafing late last year, he and his manager B. Rich inferred that they were going to do a better job of working with more of Atlanta’s “street” artists to show that he still had love for and a connection to his hometown. His newest video for “Candler Road Shit” aims to capture that. B.o.B and Bankroll Fresh hop, skip and jump over a familiar tune shouting out the Eastside lyrically and visibly. I don’t think I’ve seen the Eastwyck Village sign in a rap video in almost 20 years.
(I wish I could remember those dudes names, but they had a video they used to play on American Rap Makers all the time with the Isley Brothers’ “Voyage to Atlantis” sample. It went “Atlanta, I’ll always come back to you.”)
UPDATE: FOUND THE VIDEO. Group was named Xplicit. Shoutout to Greg Street for reminding me. Ha, song was seven minutes long brah.
But yeah, shoutout to Moss B and my potna from Atherton Elementary school Cru from Super Sounds Music for making an appearance in the B.oB video. Really doesn’t get more Eastside than that.
This week we have Glasses Malone in the studio with us to talk about some social and political idealogy. You guys already know what we’re on. Glasses goes deeper than you’d probably expect and this is arguably one of our most riveting conversations we’ve had with any guest. If you’ve been wondering about what the rapper has been doing since leaving Cash Money take a listen. Also, we talk about our own top 5 black movies in honor of Chris Rock’s Top Five release and we discuss all the good new hip hop music that dropped in the 4th quarter. Listen, Download and Share!
Big Gipp droppped his first ever (and what he promises will be his last) mixtape on Thanksgiving. I hosted the listening party for it this past Monday at the #PLAYLISTPARTY and it’s jamming. Only song I can probably absolutely do with it out is “Damn That Booty Big.” But other than that, Gipp really did his thing on this one going everywhere he could go possible. With a tracklisting that features cameos from everyone from 2 Chainz to Bruno Mars, Gipp really showed his versatility. Check it out and enjoy.
Fate would have it that Run The Jewels had a show in St. Louis the same night that the non-indictment of Murderer Darren Wilson went down in neighboring Ferguson, Missouri. Run The Jewels usually open the show by jumping right into their blood-curdling theme song. But on this night Mike took an opportunity to address the crowd first.
