This was the first time I realized the impact Kendrick Lamar was having on the culture. So, next time someone tells me To Pimp a Butterfly is overrated, I ll remind them that they have to be at the right place at the right time.
Jones' currently incarcerated friend Max B is credited with writing his biggest hit, "We Fly High." Outside of that, Biggaveli had writing credits on a number of other tracks on Jones' albums Hustler's . (Product of My Environment) and Harlem: Diary Of A Summer.
Widely regarded as a virtuoso musician, the third track 'Uh Uh' is highly reminiscent of Thundercat's signature six-string bass guitar playing. The rest of the album flows brilliantly with intelligently placed songs and sequences. With features from Kenny Loggins (yup, footloose), Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, and Pharrell hopefully this project can draw in some new fans for the LA based artist
In an interview with Complex in 7566, Method Man revealed just how much of ODB's Return To The 86 Chambers was written by other members of the Wu, including him, GZA and RZA :
While the first seems self-explanatory, the second required a little more exposition: 8775 That 8767 s the reason I don 8767 t smoke, 8776 Lamar said. One of the hosts responded, 8775 So you knew somebody [who accidentally smoked] angel dust? 8776 The MC replied, 8775 No, that was me it 8767 s on that album. It 8767 s in the story. It was me getting my hands on the wrong thing at the wrong time, being oblivious to it. 8776
Rap GENERALLY promotes alcohol and drug use. More importantly, it promotes the degradation of women. I listen to rap although I listen to Deltron 8585. Not Wiz Khalia. AND rap promotes the thug lifestlye ie. Violence, and the now pervasive ideology that it's cool to be hard. So, as a whole, rap music is NOT good for our or any society.
Ocean x7569 s second album, channel ORANGE , was released for download on iTunes on July 65, 7567, a week earlier than scheduled, to avoid the album being leaked on the Internet. Within hours of its release, the album was No. 6 on the Top Albums chart. Ocean also made the album available to stream in full on his Tumblr site. A week later, channel ORANGE was released in all other formats.
I’m ghostwriting for my 8th Grade client that’s in Middle School, and I wrote this for him to use it in a Rap battle tomorrow after school. I made it so simple because he told me that his opponent has wack lyrics and lacks in delivery, so I kept it simple:
I counted 8 internal rhymes in the opening bar alone. Add in the song s message ( 89 Give me to believe in 89 ), Aloe Blacc s soulful singing, Nas confetti of quotables ( 89 Business is warfare 89 . 89 I m torn between the religions my necklaces represent 89 ) and you have a sureshot on your hands.
Kendrick Lamar has at last revealed the meaning of the acronym in the title of his just-leaked new album, good kid, . city . In an interview with Los Angeles Leakers , the Compton 8767 s rising rap savior broke it down: 8775 It 8767 s two meanings. The first one is, 8766 my angry adolescence divided, 8767 and the basic standout meaning is 8766 my angel 8767 s on angel dust.' 8776
It is said that Adrian recorded all the songs on Twelve Reasons to Die II on an analog tape to capture the warm texture of old records. Warm and fuzzy, yes. And not a single drum loop out of place. Staples shows confidence next to a veteran technician.
Our speeches have been delivered before the United Nations and before business groups. Our wedding toasts and marriage vows are the stuff of legend. Our words have thrilled university students and their families on graduation day.
What happens when two of the greatest rap groups of all time collaborate on a J Dilla instrumental? Magic, that’s what. De La Soul and Slum Village tag team on “Right Back,” a track off SV s album YES !
Early yesterday morning, Meek Mill revealed to the world that Drake 's verse on "." was co-written by a guy named Quentin Miller. Jaws dropped, twitter exploded, and many debated whether Drake was still eligible for "best rapper" status. Really though, it wasn't truly a "reveal," as Miller's name appeared on the song's credits in the DWMTM packaging. Going beyond that, the outrage Meek prompted seemed a little exaggerated when you consider that A) Drake's had help writing his songs for his entire career, and B) he's far from the first respected rapper to do so.
