NEW MUSIC ALERT: Gucci Mane – I Get The Bag (Ft. Migos)

 

GUCCI MANE IS THE HARDEST WORKING MAN ALIVE. NOT JUST IN MUSIC, BUT IN GENERAL. I’m becoming more and more convinced. He has owned life since he’s been released from prison. Today Gucci blesses our ears with “I Get The Bag” featuring  Migos  as the first single off his upcoming “Mr. Davis” album. None of the contributors on here disappoint…. Other then the dope production, each rapper delivers dope lyrics and amazing flow to create a masterpiece.

Buddy – Type Of Sh*t (Ft. Wiz Khalifa)

 

Man this is one of the tracks that get released that just make me f*cking scream man! YO MIKE BUDDY TRYNA MAKE A REAL PUSH!!! (Mike is baby bro by the way and we love Buddy)

Man so one of my favorite projects this year was the short EP Buddy and Kaytranada put out. It was really dope and I got hip to Buddy’s talent from it whiles confirming what I think about Kaytranada’s talent. This song right here has me feeling some type of way right now at work. IM SO GROOOOOVY. Buddy raps confident on here whiles having so much fun doing so. Since this is a weed song how could he not have Wiz on here who complements Buddy so well! This track is nothing but flames and a must add to your “Turn Up”/ “Pregame” Playlist!

NEW MUSIC ALERT: Wiz Khalifa – Something New (Ft. Ty Dolla $ign)

 

MY OH MY! Am I tripping or does this track sample Zapp & Roger’s “Computer Love” ?! Maybe?  (Ayo Reubs I need a confirmation)

So Wiz has blessed us with a new single that may be on “Rolling Papers 2.” If not this is okay because one, this song is FIRE and two, “Rolling Papers 2” is on its way!!! This track has that R & B sound that I love and miss dearly. Wiz literally sounds great on everything man. His sound and style is just able to mesh well with many different sounds. (Reason 9,288,2738,329 why he is underrated) Then he has my guy Ty Dolla Sign on here and Ty can’t do no wrong man. He kills his verse and the chorus! If y’all haven’t heard this track yet stop wasting time please.

NEW MUSIC ALERT: Royce Da 5’9 – Barely Human (Ft. Tech N9ne)

 

Why do we sleep on Royce and Tech so much man? Like I do not understand this sh*t. “Barely Human” has very dark sound that suits these two very well. Tech goes in first and does not disappoint. Well I mean does he ever? Royce follows up quite nicely with some serious wordplay. These two should release more music together because they obviously sound great together and after hearing this I’m convinced they are “barely human.” 

Rating: 4.75/5 

NEW MUSIC ALERT: Pi’erre Bourne – Mad

Sooooooo….. That guy Pi’erre actually came out. Like, he really came out. Pi’erre Bourne the production genius behind Playboi Carti’s “Magnolia”  finally drops music and i was not expecting this sound. He’s on this track singing to an acoustic/pop hip-hop inspired beat. Reminds me of some of the sounds from Young Thug’s “Beautiful Thugger Girls.” Hats off to Pi’ere this is a dope first single and I wanna hear more!

Rating: 4.5/5

 

NEW MUSIC ALERT: Rae Sremmurd – Perplexing Pegasus

Perplexing Pegasus. That’s the name of  the talented duo’s new single and of course, Rae Sremmurd delivers another banger! This song literally is the flex anthem we needed as summer comes to an end soon but keeps those “vibes” high! Sure both Swae Lee and Slim Jimmi kill this track, but Mike Will may be the real MVP here as he out does himself again with an amazing job with production. So Sremmlife 3 is on the way and based off this leading single these guys may have yet another project with some serious hits on it!

Calvin Harris “Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1” Album Review

a52c1743dc9e89eff57b84e327a62880_1000x1000x1

Man… these DJ’s are becoming some of today’s biggest artist! Do y’all realize this? Khaled dropped an album this year. FIRE. Mike Will dropped “Ransom 2” back in February and that was solid. Calvin is just like these other “Top Tier” industry DJ’s, he has some serious clout. Calvin has given us those gym bangers, Fun In The Sun Delights and now he’s seen by many as the indie-disco superstar turn EDM icon. “Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1” has him with some of the world’s biggest singers and rappers to produce the certified sound of summer 2017.


MY TOP 5 SONGS

5. CASH OUT

This was something I did not think would work by viewing the tracklist but I obviously was so wrong! ScHoolboy Q killed it from the start. It actually reminded me of “Man of the Year” and “Hell Of A Night” a little and I love those tracks! The vocals from PARTY and D.R.A.M complimented Q real nice and this super incredible dope beat man!

4. HEATSTROKE

I would have never thought of Young Thug, Pharrell and Arianna Grande to ever come together on a track but they are all pretty talented and extremely versatile acts so I guess I should have seen this coming as one of the best songs on here right?

3. ROLLIN

“Rollin” was real dope track. Future surprisingly sounded fantastic on here even though he’s basically stumbling on his words but is that really new? (that was a joke) We still understand what he’s saying. I got like this late 1970’s groove from track. This song could maybe suit a Starsky & Hutch reboot, if there was one. Oh and Khalid? He’s contributions to this is are what Frank Ocean is to Slide!

2. FEELS

This song is amazing. The production was A1. Pharrell is once again killing it on yet another top 5 track on here. He is joined by the likes of Katy Perry who doesn’t have a huge roll on here but blesses us with her vocals and by my guy Big Sean who may have been the perfect feature for this song. Big Sean’s quirky flow and elite wordplay gives this track its HARDNESS. I love this song man and wish it blew up more!

1. SLIDE

WHEN I FIRST HEARD THIS I SCREAMED. THE VIBES ON HERE! FRANK OCEAN AND MIGOS? MAN GTFO RIGHT?

This song easily is the number one track on here and is one of top songs this summer. Maybe #1? Frank Ocean does the damn hing on this very disco sounding track! He is such a talented artist man. Frank doesn’t have a bad collab to his name so we should have known this would be gold before hitting play and the Migos may be Time Magazine’s first “Men” of the year. They really sounded great on this fantastic production job by Calvin Harris and his team.

9. FAKING IT (Ft. Kehlani & Lil Yachty) (3.5/5)

10. HARD TO LOVE (Ft. Jessie Reyez) (4.2/5)


‘Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1’ is a sensational project. From the very start, with “Slide,” featuring two of my favorite acts Frank Ocean and Migos, is that “South Beach Miami Chillin” Banger that sounds good, makes you feel good and it has a pretty dam catchy hook man. Frank and the Migos chemistry on here was undeniable. It was nice to hear all the members of the Migos on here too. (Takeoff made the cut y’all!!!) The rest of this project is almost as amazing as the opener with interesting collabs from Young Thug, Pharrell and Arianna Grande on “HeatStroke,” Schoolboy Q, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and D.R.A.M on “Cash Out.” Katy Perry is on the dreamy disco-funk anthem ‘Feels’  featuring my guy Big Sean and Pharrell. Snoop Dogg is on the G-Funk/West Coast flavored ‘Holiday’, and Future and Khalid are on the party-starter “Rollin.” Oh and Nikki Minaj finally caught a victory with “Skrt On Me.” The projects production is absolutely amazing. I love this 1970’s funk sound. I may have been born the wrong era honestly. Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 is just 10 tracks and runs just under 40 minutes but Calvin Harris and company deliver us that fun loving album that represents all the vibes of summer. The songs on here will be on many summer playlist of Spotify for the next decade! Y’all know how much I love saying the term “Groovy.” That is the only feeling you’ll get bumping this project.

RATING: 9.3/10
