“The Recipe” – Kendrick Lamar ft. Dr. Dre

 

Possibly the best rapper in the game right now and his mentor – Kendrick and Dre, respectively – drop a track together. Oddly, Dre’s flow in this one sounds surprisingly similar to Kendrick….. But I’m not claiming ghost writing or anything.

Anyways, it’s a Dre beat, so you know the production is great, and any verse that sounds like Kendrick (or is Kendrick) is amazing, so the verse are sweet. The hook may have left some to be desired, but that’s all good. This is presumably a single off of Kendrick’s upcoming album, “Good Kid in a Mad City”.

Diggy Simmons Disses J. Cole on “What You Say to Me”

Young Diggy responds to a friendly “diss” off J. Cole’s “Grew Up Fast”, in which he also talked about Diggy’s sister, Vanessa. No offense to Diggy, but you can certainly tell that he’s 17 on this track: first he tells Cole that he has no friends, then he calls him a dweeb. Cole could easily rip Diggy in a beef, but I doubt he thinks it is worth his time.

Notorious B.I.G.: 15 Years Later

The debate for all-time greatest emcee often comes down to an argument pitting the late greats 2Pac and Notorious B.I.G. 15 years ago today, the latter of this pair was murdered. Throughout his all-too-short lifetime, Biggie only released two albums (“Ready to Die” and “Life After Death”), but both were classics. No questions asked. Biggie’s story-telling, flow, and iconic voice catapulted him to the top of the East Coast rap game. If Biggie had lived and continued to consistently put out music as great as his first two albums, he may be considered the inarguable G.O.A.T.

Regardless, the rap industry today still feels the influence of Notorious. Personally, I listened to nothing but Biggie today to commemorate his death. Biggie Smalls, we salute you.

Download Link, Official Artwork & Lyrics: “DoYaThing” by Gorillaz feat. James Murphy & Andre 3000

An up-beat, near-techno beat which Gorillaz picked up and got James Murphy and Andre 3000 to hop on. In my opinion, Murphy & Gorillaz are mediocre on this song, but 3 Stacks absolutely MURDERS it.

Tyga’s “Love Game”

Personally, this is my favorite song from Tyga’s debut album “Careless World: Rise of the Last King”. It’s a great love story told over a chilling beat with a great dubstep outro. I love it.
