Back In This Thaaaaang!

Back In This Thaaaaang!

Wuddduuupp summer swaggers?! (is that a real word?) Thank yall sooo much for your patience buuuttt after exams/work/goodbyes we are back on our blog ishh. We came to you live last Sunday with the TNC Takeover buttt I was back at it this week with some of that classic RapUp programming. Thank you thank you thank you, you are far too kind…

We kicked things off with a some of that new Larry Fisherman Larry Lovestein Mac Miller and Earl Sweatshirt. These dudes dropped a track off Earl’s upcoming album entitled DorisĀ and maaaan is it dope. Yall can check out the laidback track here. We also let yall get a little taste of that Black Hippy crew. They remixed the controversial Rocko/Rick Ross assisted song UNENO. Each and every member really goes in and proves why they are the hottest crew in the game right now. Check it out right here. THere tHey go…

We moved onto a little guilty pleasure. GGP this week took a strangely soft turn though… Instead of the classic banger, I let your ears experience some of that new Weeknd. Even after his breakup with Drake, he still delivers some of that quality R&B music. The track is called Kiss Land/John Carpenter and yall can check it out right here. XO til we overdose…

What do you get when you mix a lot of ad libs with a lot of features? Can’t guess? Well in this case, it’s a French Montana album. Mr. haaaaaaaan himself dropped his first full length studio album. As yall can probably guess, it had a lot of features. It was decently well put together but the best songs had the usual suspects on it. (Rick Ross, Diddy, Weezy, Drake, Ace Hood etc.) The LP had a total of 18 songs and on 3 were only French. I gave it a mediocre 7/10 due to the lack of substance but the excess of bangers. #GuiltyAsCharged

The Realness this week was about style and hip-hop. Rappers these days are really showing an interest in aute cultuuure and high fashion. From Yeezy’s skirt to ASAP’s dress-leggings combo, rappers have been stepping their clothes game up. AND THATS OKAY! As hip-hop heads we gotta realize that the rap game is always changing and going thru different cycles. I can remember a time when snapbacks and bucket hats were a big no-no and now look at what all your favorite rappers are wearing. Sooo when these MCs are repping leather and cheetah print pants, don’t hate… appreciate. The morale of the story is that hip-hop culture is always changing and we gotta adapt with the times. Respect my mind or…

We finished things off with some local KW hip-hop. WE the big homie Ramsay Almighty dropped a new track and video this past week and maaaan is it tight. The track is called ‘Vampire’ and it features the young KW rapper spitting about some of them summer love feelings. Check out the video here. We also jammed some new HonorsClass. This group is also outta they KW and have just dropped a few new records. Their sound is laidback and perfect for any backyard BBQ. Check out their soundcloud right here. #LocalHipHop
