Sooo the week finally came when my stomach wouldn’t let me keep anything down, therefore the two young guns had to take the reigns. They did okay… I guess. They kicked things off with a little dose of Brooklyn’s finest new rhyme slinger, Joey Bada$$. He dropped a new track with hip-hop OG, DJ Premier. The track is called ‘Unorthodox’ and yall can check it out here.
The fellas moved on to a super controversial topic in hip-hop right now and that is ‘what is the most anticipated hip-hop album of 2013’. The list is filled with some up and comers and also had some hip-hop vets. Kamo and Cutz were definitely up in arms with some members on the list but we hope to see most of these records drop in the year to come. Soo without further ado, here are the most anticipated albums of 2013: 10. Jay Electronica 9. J Cole 8. Pusha T 7. Rick Ross 6. Future 5. Big Sean 4. Eminem 3. Jay-Z 2. Kanye West 1. Drake. Let us know how yall feel about the list by getting at us on Twitter @RLRapUp.
Turning our ears to our own campus, Most Dope rapper Mac Miller came and performed at The Turrent this past Monday and according to the reviews, he tuuuurned up. A RapUp representative was at the show and said he ran thru the hits and even gave a the crowd a taste of his new stuff. Yall can check out a video of him performing here.
The Realness this week was kicked on the big bad question of why rap music is soo damn competitive. With all the recent beefs and battles in hip-hop lately, it is easy to see that rap music is the most competitive and pompous music genre. Have any of yall ever heard a country music beef or orchestra feud? I don’t think I can remember the last time there was a ego-driven beef between illScarlett and Fall Out Boy. Truuu?
Well, that’s all from us this week. Check us out every Thursday from 7pm-9pm and DO NOT forget to hit us on Twitter @RLRapUP and get your fave rap songs played and then TURRRNNED UP!
Peace, Love & Khaled’s bath water.
