We’re baaaaacckkkkk! I hope yall missed us a little while we were gone. Not only am I back in the building but we also got the
skinny big homie Kamo back as well. As I am sure yall know, we had a major summer for hip-hop and even though I was rocking with yall the entire time it’s time we summarize the summer and keep things moving.
We kicked things off with all the big summer albums. Annnnnnd man were there a lot. Everyone from Juicy J to J Cole dropped a project this summer and made a mark on the 2013 catalog. Sooo, it is only right that we summed up every album that dropped and played a lil’ something off it just in case you were under a rock for four months.
May 21st: French Montana – Excuse My French
June 18th: J Cole – Born Sinner
June 18th: Kanye West – Yeezus
June 18th: Mac Miller – Watching Movies With The Sound Off
June 25th: Wale – The Gifted
July 4th: Jay-Z – Magna Carta Holy Grail
August 20th: A$AP Ferg – Trap Lord
August 20th: Earl Sweatshirt – Doris
August 27th: Big Sean – Hall Of Fame
August 27th: Juicy J – Stay Trippy
Don’t want to sift thru all of these records? Fair enough. Our top 5 include Big Sean, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Mac Miller and J Cole.
Don’t want to listen to a full album? Check out our certified 2013 songs of summer. Ready? Here it goes:
Versace Remix – Drake & Migos
95 Til Infinity – Joey Bada$$
I’m In It – Kanye West
Forbidden Fruit – J Cole & Kendrick Lamar
Control – Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica
Okay, now back to our regular scheduled programming. Glaysh’s Guilty Pleasure is still in full effect. That being said, things are getting guiltier this year. But I’m sure yall are wondering how that is physically possible… well it is. We took it to the streets of Harlem for the g-mix of A$AP Ferg’s anthem ‘Work’. The track on its own is tuuurn up enough but the remix is next level. It features French Montana, Trinidad James, ScHoolBoy Q and A$AP Rocky. Talk about trill. Check the video here and remember to put in work.
Verse of the Week was simple. What was the verse of the summer? There are two obvious ones. Can’t guess? Versaceversaceversaceversaceversaceversace. Still nothing? Okay well, Drizzy killed Migos’ track essentially making it his own. This was naturally my pick. Kamo came with K Dot’s verse on Control which shook up the hip-hop world and also clogged my Twitter timeline for days. How would we decide a winner with only two DJs? YOU! We took to Twitter to find our winner and by popular demand, Kamo/Kendrick took the win. That will all change next though, I’ve got bars.
Feel some type of way about any lists we made? Get at us on Twitter @RLRapUp and let us know what you think about the whole summer. We always have our ears to the
Peace, Love & Kendrick Responses
