Wuddduppp yall?! Hope your reading was spent doing, well, readings. But since it probably wasn’t I’m sure you could a use a little re-up on everything happening in hip-hop. I mean, what better way to start the final stretch of this school year than a little rhyming, right? Or nah?
This week, we got a new project from TDE gangster, ScHoolboy Q. He officially dropped his debut LP on a major label. (’bout time). The album is called Oxymoron and is fiiiiire. Simply put. It features Kendrick, 2 Chainz, Raekwon, Tyler The Creator, Kurupt and the list goes on and on. It does a wicked awesome job of bringing back that real “gangsta” rap because lord knows hip-hop is too nice these days. Our rating? 8/10. Check out some dope tracks off the album here, here and here. Yawk!
In other news, Young Thug got arrested, Rick Ross’ album leaked, Slim Thug got his own holiday and Kid Cudi hasn’t got any better.
GLAYSH’S GUILTY PLEASURE this week was a classic. If you know me at all, I’m taking, like, at ALL, then you would know that I’ve got a massive soft spot for YMCMB. A few weeks ago, Young Money president, Lil Wayne announced that we would be getting another YM compilation album. Their second single is quite guilty. It’s called Senile and features Tyga, Nicki Minaj and Weezy F himself. Waring: this track may make you become ig’nant and turn up-ishhh. Enjoy!
REAL OR RATCHET was mostly all ratchet. yall know who Lil B is, right? He’s this questionable emcee that has crowned himself as the “based god”. Anyways, he is quite the character and isn’t afraid to show it on Twitter. Sooo, this week, we grabbed some tweets in which he gives people advice and then deemed them either real or ratchet. Should you take his advice? Probably not. Check out our favorite below.
For the second half of the show, we had the big homie Rufus come thru and bless us with some new tunes off his album entitled Growing Pains. The album is incredibly smooth and features some of your favorite KW artists. Yall can get the project of iTunes and in your local CD stores real soon. For now, check out his music right here and make sure to follow him on Twitter @rufusmusic
Well, that’s it from us this week. Maybe sure to check us out next week AND mark March 19th off on your calendars. Why? WE’VE GOT THE SECOND ANNUAL HIP-HOP HANGOUT. Trust us, this one is gunna be craaaazy.
