Yelawolf f. Gucci Mane - Wanna Party

| 0 comments

I talked about the up-and-coming rapper Yelawolf on a recent JJGo a bit. While this track may not be my #1 favorite track I've heard him on, it does represent (along with the video) something he does really well - give me the heebie-jeebies.

Both Big Boi and Yelawolf (the white guy with the creepy haircut) just rip this track. Yelawolf has a big future. Andre 3000 on the beat.

A-1 Charizard

I've known A-1 since he was watching Pokemon, and now he's flipping the theme song from Pokemon for this excellent track. He grew up on my block, and our families were (and are) close friends. He's the same age as my little brother, and they've been tight since they were like six. This is a hot record. I'm proud of the little guy (who's like 20 now, so I shouldn't call him a little guy anymore).

Now that I've seen this, it's going to be tough to accept videos that don't have any SPACE INDIANS in them.

J. Cole - Who Dat

Produced by J. Cole himself, with help from Elite. The first single.

Features my all-time favorite hip-hop quotable: "Now who else wanna fuck with Hollywood Cole?"

Big Boi as Sir Luscious Left Foot - Shutterbugg

A fucking awesome new video from Big Boi's upcoming album. Also, below is the first video from "Son of Chico Dusty," For Your Sorrows, which is also fucking awesome. Also, Royal Flush, which leaked a couple years ago now, is similarly fucking awesome. I guess the lesson is that Big Boi is fucking awesome.
