Wuddduupp gangstas?! Wow. I’m never saying that again. Sorry. But on the real, we are live and direct this week. We are glad yall are back because there is some stuff we GOTTA talk about.
As always, we kicked things off with some headlines. Soooo Kanye vs. everyone continues. This week he is gunning for Jimmy Kimmel. JimKim made a little spoof on Kanye’s BBC interview and Kanye did not take it well. Let’s just say it resulted in an all-caps Twitter rant. Buuut in other news, Lil Weezy Wee, cut his dreads back to ’06 length. Will this maybe bring back some ’06 rhymes? Doubtful.
I guess it wouldn’t be a complete show without a full criminal rapper update. Well, Gucci got sentenced to 6 months in federal prison and Young Buck just got out! One in and one out. That’s just how I feel…
Okay. Back to the meat and potatoes. Glaysh’s Guilty Pleasure this week comes outta the A$AP camp. Ferg and Rocky link up to give us a little ode to Mr. Shabba Ranks. The song is extra synthy and a perfect turn up track. Check out the video right here and enjoy your new Phils pre drink go-to.
Now we’ve got you stuck off The Realness and we’re taking this one to the mean streets of Philly. Meek Mill has been a mixtape killer for a while now and his latest installment of the Dreamchasers series certifies that. Just yesterday, Milly dropped Dreamchasers 3. This tape is a slew of hot beats and rhymes that 100% put on for the streets. There is no one I REPEAT no one that is living more what they rap about than Meek. He keeps it 100% hip-hop and you will never hear this guy on a track with David Guetta or Jason Aldean. In Meek we trust…
Now, as real as Meek may be, there is also some ratchetness we gotta touch on. We dug up 10 embarrassing moments in hip-hop and decided whether they helped the culture or hurt it. Most of ’em hurt. Check out the list for yourselves right here and let us know what you think. They are up for debate.
Our underground king this week was a little strange. BUT please don’t call it a comeback. Mr. North Carolina has been on the underground for a while. 15 years to be exact. We’re not talking about Jermaine Cole either. Can’t guess? Think ‘lil’. Still nothing? Okay, well we are talking about Phonte. Phonte is a Grammy nominated rapper, formerly of the now defunct North Carolina trio Little Brother. He is a famous underground king due to his rhymes which tend to be no-frills perspectives on working-class. Check out a RapUp favorite right here. Keep fighting the good fight Tigallo!
Now… time for Verse of the Week. Since this whole NWTS buzz hasn’t died yet, we had to pick the best verse on Drake’s new album. I went with Drizzy’s last verse on Wu-Tang Forever and Kam went with his first verse on Poundcake. The winner? It’s youuuursssss, nobody else’s! That’s right. Glaysh took this one. Finally. The semester score is currently 2-2. Someone tell Kamo it’s comfortable at the top. Ha! Check out the winning verse right here.
Well, that is it for us this week. Make sure to catch us next week same time, same place. Oh yeah, follow us on Twitter @RLRapUp and let us know what you wanna hear cause we do this for yall… and the streets.
