[LISTEN]Wanna Know-Meek Mill(Drake Diss)

 

So I think I spoke too soon about Drake VS Meek being a battle *side-eye* So two diss records(from Drake) and a week later, Meek finally decided to release his response to Drake’s two diss record. I bet you’re wondering what my thoughts are right? Well…

This song is DOA, we waited a week for this!?! Really bruh, you couldn’t do no better than that? Meek clearly hasn’t done his homework on how a battle goes. Well I think the score is Drake 3/Meek 0. I would say good effort Meek,but I’d be lying. Try again Meek!

[LISTEN] Ratchet Song of the Week: Blow A Bag-Future

 The Ratchet Song of the Week(RSW) is Blow A Bag by Future. The song come from his newly release DS2(Dirty Sprite 2) album. Future scored his first number 1 album last week, and it was well deserved. Honestly any song on this album could have been the RSW because I got my whole entire ratchet life from this album. Everyone and I mean everyone needs a little ratchet in their life, it saves lives.

While I am not a fan of Future’s disparaging remarks about Ciara, I do agree with what he said about her staying in the Body Party Lane because that is what we need from her. Go ahead and get your weekly dose of ratchet from Future. This song makes we want to blow a bag, and rent is due on the first LOL!

[REVIEW]Should Been There Pt. 1-Sevyn Streeter

Singer/songwriter Seven Streeter is back with new music. The new project is titled Should Been There Pt. 1. The project has 6 songs and several interludes. Of the six song, I can say that I like all 6 songs, but my favorite songs are as follows:

Don’t Kill The Fun(feat. Chris Brown)

This song is feel good up-tempo on which Sevyn and Chris Brown sing about living life and having fun. Living in the moment the best course of action in life.The duo always makes good music together, and this time is no different. This one is repeat worthy.

Consistent

This one is a mid-tempo song on which Sevyn sings about being played by her boyfriend, but hey at least he’s consistent! LOL. Nothing vocally dynamic about this song, but it has a nice beat and it is catchy. It’s definitely worth a listen.

Love In Competition 

This is the Sevyn I love, she always comes through with a nice little slow jam. Love In Competition is that slow jam that I was looking for from her. She sings about doubting her partners faithfulness, she wonders if he is seeing another chick on the side, and how compares to said chick. So relatable, how many females/males have done this? I love this one!

Boomerang(feat Hit-Boy)

Boomerang is a hip roll/slow wine tune featuring Hit-Boy. Sevyn uses a boomerang as metaphor for her man who goes out at night, but doesn’t return home to her. She also samples Toni Braxton’s Love Shoulda Brought You Home, which was featured on the Boomerang Original Soundtrack, very smart. This is a good one as well.

I honestly could have gone without all the interludes, and opted for more songs, but this is just part 1. We will see what part 2 has to offer. Sevyn is definitely here to stay. This project is solid effort and definitely worth a listen.

Final Rating: 2.5/5

[LISTEN] Throwback Thursday-Something In My Heart-Michel’le

The Throwback Thursday song is Something In My heart by R&B Diva Michel’le. This was the ultimate slow jam back in the day, this used to play constantly on the radio. The song is from Michel’le’s 1989 self-titled debut album. This song is essential for any slow jam playlist.

[LISTEN] New Music: Back To Back-Drake(Meek Mill Diss)


Ladies and gentlemen I think we have a battle on our hands!

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past few days then you know Meek Mill and Drake are at odds. Why? You ask, because Meek Mill got on Twitter in what looked like a alcohol and weed induced rant and decided to go at Drake. He accused Drake of having a ghostwriter, which honesty no one really cares about at this point. Sure hardcore hip hop heads will hold Drake’s feet to the fire, but if you look back in hip hop a lot of great artists have had ghost writers. Salt N Pepa, Biz Markie, Roxanne Shante, and even Dr Dre had ghost writers. As Charlamange said, “We don’t care who prepared the food, it’s all about how it tastes and how it’s presented” to paraphrase.

If Drake does have a ghost writer, it’s clear his presentation is leaps and bounds ahead of of Meek Mill’s. I didn’t think Drake would respond to this jab, but he did with a little tap titled Charged Up. With this diss record he tapped Meek a few times, but it wasn’t a Jay-Z Takeover type of record. Meek responded on Twitter, but didn’t release a diss record, but he did go to Toronto and  subliminally dissed Drake in his hometown with the “Fuck You” portion of his show, now this has been a part of his show in other cities, but it’s significant because of this beef. Now Funk Master Flex was supposed to have more reference tracks from Drake’s songs to prove the ghostwriting accusations, and also was supposed to have the “Exclusive” Meek Mill response, but he didn’t deliver and I’m not surprised. So we waited and waited for a response from Meek, but nothing.

So last night before I put head to pillow I said to one of my friends Drake is going to release another song, and what do I wake up to? Another diss record from Drake titled Back To Back. Aubrey didn’t play with Meek on this track. This is what hip hop is suppose to be, I can’t wait to hear what Meek’s response is. Drake sounds like he is just getting started or “Charged Up”

R.I.Paradise Bobbi Kritina Brown


Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, has died at the age of 22.

The Houston family announced her passing in a statement via their rep. “Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July, 26, 2015, surrounded by her family,” the statement reads. “She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”

This is a sad and tragic death, but she is finally at peace. She is with her mother and God. My prayers go out to her family during this time, especially Bobby Brown. I can’t imagine the pain a parent feels losing a child.

Prayers up for the Brown & Houston family
