Wuddduupp friends?! Hope all is well and everyone is avoiding the snowmagedon happening outside. We’ve been all bundled up on some eskimo type ishhhh but our Timbs are still soaking wet. Can anyone help? No? Okay. Anyways, we’ve had two really dope shows back to back with some crazy music, videos and cyphers.
First things first we NEED to talk about this Shady XV thing. So Shady Records is celebrating their 15th year anniversary this year and to do so they are dropping an album next week featuring a whole whack of different people from all over the record label as well as the industry as a whole. On top of that (probably to promo the album) Eminem, Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse got together for an 18 minute acapella cypher. Everyone remembers the BET Awards Shady 2.0 Cypher and this new one gives it a run for its money. Check it out below as well as a new track off their upcoming album.’ ______ vs. Everybody’ on the way?
On top of that we talked about J Cole’s upcoming album, YG’s movie and of course the whole Kim K naked photoshoot.
Lastly, we took a look at Your Old Droog’s new LP. If you don’t remember YOD, let me give you a little reminder. Way back in the summer time we talked about this unknown rapper from New York who sounded EXACTLY like Nas. Like, almost 100% like Nas. A lot of people thought that he was actually Nas. However, we eventually found out that he wasn’t but the raps are still amazing. Anyways, he recently released his full length self titled LP. There is really no other rapper right now doing what he’s doing. His use of boom baps and jazz samples makes us feel like we are back in the 80s/90s. Peep our faves below!
Well, that’s it from us this week. Check us out same time same place. Make sure to check us out on Twitter for all the updates and so on and so forth.
Peace, Love & Eminem’s Rhyme Books
