VIDEO: Rae Sremmurd – Up Like Trump

Rae Sremmurd are on a roll. With a little help in the stu from master beatmaker Mike WiLL Made It, twentyfourteen has been stellar with 2 crackers, No Flex Zone & No Type, the freshly squeezed Throw Sum Mo featuring (IMO) the current king of hip hop Young Thug & the notorious Nicki Minaj, as well as appearing on the previously blogged Baauer jam One Touch. Fresh out of Sonny Digital’s oven, this week the boys have cooked up audio & visual for their follow-up single Up Like Trump and it smells like another hit to me.

Swae Lee & Slim Jim make their own money & they spend it how they like, and if we’re going by this video it’s on Hummers, Lennon shades, creepy Donald Trump masks, nunchucks and getting white girls wasted in swanky New York City penthouses. With an average age of 20 and presumably quite a stack of cash to burn…. life just ain’t fair. Sigh.

SPOTLIGHT: Honey Cocaine

251078-honey-cocaine

For some reason, female rappers don’t enjoy the same appreciation from hiphopheads that their male counterparts receive and you know what, it really fucking sucks. Especially with the abundance of rad lady emcee’s out and about right now, and as much as I love Miss Minaj and Igloo Australia (LOL at the Azealia/Azalea beef) I’m not just talking about them.

Honey Cocaine is a pint-sized Canadian cutie originally from Cambodia who can spit a nasty rhyme. Unearthed by fellow (part) AZN rapper Tyga, she has a unique flow with a very subtle lisp (think Casey Veggies but toned down) but the girl sure goes hard.

A perfect introduction to Queen Honey C is her video for Chichi Get The Yayo. With beats by Dkevrim, Honey manages to pull off thug & sexy at the same time, totally rocking her thigh high hosiery, cat claws, braces and bling bling in the bathtub;

Honey’s latest video, Curveball follows a ratchet thoroughly enjoying getting eyeball fucked while booty popping through a street festival;

Here’s a throwback to her OG rap duet with Tyga;

So I’m talking to the dudes now – do we like? Is she aiight? Haven’t written her off yet? Sweet! Have a listen to her latest mixtape, Like A Drug. Honorable mentions go out to previously blogged twerk anthem Gwola featuring Kid Ink & Maino and BTCHSM featuring fellow chick rapper Snow Tha Product (now that you have this newfound respect for female emcee’s you should totally check her out too)

Queen Honey C, nice to meet you baby :)

 

FRESH PRODUCER: Stwo

tttPronounced like a kind of slow-cooked liquidy casserole, Stwo is another primo producer hailing from the land famous for croissants, the Eiffel Tower & a supposed distaste for Americans. With an impressive array of remixes under his belt, this young Frenchman has come here to chew bubblegum and make your ass dance.

Here Stwo works his magic on T-Pain, taking his vocals & much of the ratchet factor down a notch;

 

Here Stwo cooks up some Trey Songz (but hold the mustard, please);

 

& here Stwo gives this Sango beat a few shots of a caffeine;

 

His original tracks are just as, if not, more impressive than his remixes. This one is super seductive with a hypnotic echo;

 

& this sexy stoner jam slaps you in the face with awesomeness, sampling Three Six Mafia’s Sippin On Some Sizzurp.

 

Jet’aime aussi, Stwo <3

BABY IT’S THE REMIX: Baauer – One Touch

Yours truly has a tendency to crank multiple versions of the same track within the same musical rotation, and this is one such example currently being relished. The OG version, featuring rhymes from Rae Sremmurd (a pair of rappers who spit over Mike Will Made It beats & who’s name spells Ear Drummers backwards) & vocals from Aluna George (UK pop duo) is an unlikely collaboration, yet Baauer makes the genre-bending ménage à trois work. And thanks to Baauer’s tip-top recruitment skillz, more of the world have now been introduced to Swae Lee & Slim Jimmy, the 2 young dudes making up Rae Sremmurd, who spit about popping Senzu beans <3 :D

 

Choosing to remove the cheek of Rae Sremmurd, Baauer also made a mean “VIP” remix of One Touch (which he actually released first), highlighting the super sweet vocals of Aluna while upping the intensity just a tad, making it all the more gurn friendly. You probably want to pop a Senzu bean to this one :D

VIDEO: ScHoolboy Q – Hell Of A NigHt

 

Being Oxymoron video lucky number 7, it seems Groovy Q is on a mission to viddy every track off of it. The prospect is exciting, since ScHoolboy Q could personally be my favourite rapper… or does it have to be Kendrick? It’s supposed to be… right? And I was supposed to inform you that Q (or Jay Rock or Ab Soul or anyone on TDE) is a Kendrick affiliate too, wasn’t I? :| Anywho, the video for Hell Of A NigHt should appeal to anyone that has ever been too turnt and lost their marbles on a night. Q kicks things off with a familiar red cup filled with an ambitious narcotic cocktail. He rocks a mean bucket hat & grill, gurning with bulk bad bitches, later seen huffing nitrogen (aka nangs aka hippy crack). He also trips balls in front of a mirror for a while. Standard, given the circumstances. Enjoy :D

SPOTLIGHT: Tory Lanez

3088

Canada’s hip hop offspring seem to have a knack for multi-tasking & Tory Lanez is another Canadian triple threat who sings, raps & produces. Peep the next two tracks – featuring Kirko Bangz, (who sounds like Drake, yeah?) Know What’s Up seductively showcases Tory Lanez’ beautiful voice, which for the ladies, could be likened to a towelette (moist). Then viddy the clip for The Godfather & you will hear an almost indistinguishable Lanez in G mode (not to mention you’ll see a fair bit of bud & bad bitches if you’re into either of those things) 8-)

Without the need to create an alter-ego for his distinct other dimension, he just is who he is – Tory Lanez. Working in the stu alongside producers Play Picasso & Noah Breakfast, as well as appearances from the bae Ryan Hemsworth on Mama Told Me & RL Grime on I-95, the pocket rocket’s freshly dropped mixtape Lost Cause nicely illustrates his skillz, with the tracks Gold, Selfish / York University & The Mission flaunting his singing/rapping dexterity particularly well.

< 46 min /12 eargasms/1 mixtape later >

And here’s ya boy T-Lanez sounding superb in the chorus of a mean YG track about his thot ex…

:cry:

October 2014 Playlist

 

Nothing kicks off a playlist quite like a twerk jam & Gwola (with production by Coke Empire) is going to be a twerk anthem. Trust me, chuck on some of that Gwola and you’ll have white bitches twerking up & down nightclubs and/or alleyways in no time (see Exhibit A below). Plus you get the added bonus of the ensuing back & forth when abovementioned white girls ask you ‘What was that song!?!’ and you inevitably say ‘Oh, ‘Gwola’, by Honey Cocaine.’ Then they say ‘What? Honey Cocaine, is that ACTUALLY her name?’ You say ‘Yeah’, then they ask you if you’re serious & you say ‘Yeah, I am from Syria!’

‘Oh my god, Honey COCAINE, I can’t even’….. (☉_☉)

ERRRBODY IN THE STREETS THEY KNOW 💸 #gwola #honeycocaine #twerk #whitegirl #dayum🍑

A video posted by 💕🎧 (@snuggle_thug) on

Anyway, once you get past the initial Honey Cocaine induced booty workout, you’ll probably just keep on twerking til Track 7, when all the narcotic name-dropping might inspire you to blaze it up for the next 10 tracks. We then encroach on PBR&B territory, where you may become somewhat moist/hard (courtesy of Tory Lanez, The Weeknd, PARTYNEXTDOOR / Tinashe, respectively). Once you’ve gathered your composure at Track 21 (you stoopid) you may get the natural urge in your loins to shake it like a saltshaker again. This shaking of salt should carry you through the chill-trappy dreaminess of Tracks 27-32, until the list gets a little bit more hectic, upon which the addition of tequila and lemon should certainly be considered.

FRESH PRODUCER: 20syl

avatars-000066385695-r4nwnu-crop

This French dude, 20syl - he makes a mean remix. He’s got the knack for taking a track, maybe just a snippet of the vocals and creating something reminiscent of old-school hip-hop yet completely brand new and funky fresh.

Exhibit A, this almighty concoction of Kendrick Lamar’s closing verse from Game’s The City plus a whole bunch of flutes or whistles or something. Shit’s rad.

 

This ScHoolboy Q rework is barely distinguishable from the OG track beat-wise but equally as awesome (and another little nod to TDE)

 

A wee bit of King Krule Easy Easy, given the 20syl treatment;

 

& here’s his latest gem, a Gregory Porter re-jig…

BABY IT’S THE REMIX: Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Now

Whether they like it or not, my neighbours listen to some pretty good tracks. The Infuze remix of Kid Cudi’s Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Now was one that emanated from my abode a good six months back… for a couple of months, every weekend, both Friday & Saturday nights, multiple times throughout proceedings. A gurn anthem like no other, it must be turnt up and it helps if you are too, although not essential – it’s a mean remix.

*reader turns speakers up and presses play

*reader takes a moment to recover from eargasm

For reference purposes & also because it’s a rad track in itself, hear the OG version here;
