Wuddduupp friends?! Hopefully you guys are having an easy time with midterms and such. I know that I’ve been
procrastinating procrastirapping like crazy. I’m suuure yall have been too. BUT! If you wanna take a little study bar break, then take a look at what went down this week in hip-hop.
First we have the GOAT.
M&M Eminem dropped a track off his upcoming album, The Marshall Mathers LP Part 2. The song is called Rap God and it perfectly displays why Marshall is still the god of rap. Check it out right here. We also had a new little signing from the good folks over at YMCMB. Birdman and Co. have signed west coast rapper The Game. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. The Game has been labeless for a minute now and his long time collaborators and gang affiliates (suwooooop to the b-gang) scooped him up for a full deal. Hopefully Game can make some of that old Documentary ishhh again. Please and thanks…
We also had a little scuffle between Drake and Future. Future, when talking to Billboard, kinda chirped Drake’s new album. Therefore, Drizzy axed him from their upcoming ‘Would You Like A Tour’ tour. BUT! They seemed to have made up and now Future is back. That’s word to Stunna yaaaa know.
ps: the BET Awards aired this week and we saw some cypher sounds. I’m not gunna say a ton, I’m just gunna show you some of the dope rhymes, rhythms and reasons.
REAL OR RATCHET this week was the winners of this year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards. There are a whole wack on awards and a ton of nominees. We deemed some legit but others were just plain WHACK! Check the list of winners here for yourself and let us know what you think.
GLAYSHS GUILTY PLEASURE was none other than DJ Khaled’s new anthem entitled You Dont Want These Problems. Does it have any features? 2ChainzAceHoodBigSeanFrenchMontanaMeekMillRickRossTimbaland. Did you get all that? Good. Well, it knocks so check it out right here.
THE REALNESS was, well, real. We looked at Drake axing Future from his upcoming tour. EVEN THOUGH Drake brought him back on after Future filed a lawsuit, we thought it would be cool to look at it anyways. Is it a sucker move for Drake to axe Future from the tour just because he said bad things about NWTS? Should Future just have bitten his lip (he is projected to make $40,000 per show)? We think it’s a bit of both. Moral of the story: DON’T BIT THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU!
VERSE OF THE WEEK was gross kinda. This week (in anticipation of Halloween) we decided to pick the MOST GRUESOME VERSE. This had to be a verse that was utterly disgusting and gut wrenching. I picked Earl Sweatshirt’s verse of Earl and Kamo picked Tyler, The Creator’s verse on Yonkers. Le winner? Earl Sweatshirt!!! That brings me to 4-2? 5-2? Someone please tell Kamo to catch up. Ha!
Anyways, that is all from us. Make sure to catch us same time same place. Oh yeah, and follow us on Twitter and join the convo @RLRapUp
