The Trap Gods Have Smiled Down Upon Us Kinfolk!
Gucci Mane & Future have drop from some new music on us in the form of Free Bricks 2(Zone 6). With Gucci fresh out the Fed and Future dealing with baby mama drama it just makes sense for the the two of them to get together again for a second of installment of the Free Bricks series.
The mixtape has 6 tracks, which I am HERE for! Gucci and Future trade verses over beats that their loyal fan bases have grown to love. It’s a two for one special with this album. The trap gods knew exactly what I needed today. Take a listen below:

Fabolous dropped his new mixtape, Summertime Shoutout(SS). and of course I am HERE for it. Anytime Fab drops a mixtape it’s an event and we are always in for a treat. SS isn’t of the same caliber as the Soul Tape series, but it’s Fab so i’ll take it! The mixtape features Trey Songz, Nicki Minaj, Rich Homie Quan, Bryson Miller, The Weeknd. Fab embraces the new generation without sounding like that lame Uncle trying keep up with the younger generation. Continue reading
Not even 2 days into the new year Chris Lova Lova AKA Ludacris has dropped a new mixtape titled Ludavereses. This mixtape comes days after he proposed to his long time girlfriend Eudoxiee. On this mixtape he mixes all of his best freestyles from the past few months into a 20 minute super mix. He raps over “Hot N*gga,” “Tuesday,” “Tom Ford,” “Feeling Myself,” and more.
Luda’s Burning Bridges EP is available for free on Google Play, and will be available at other digital retailer on January 6. Also be on the look out for his 9th studio album Ludaversal on March 31. Until then check out the hot mix below:
So…Kimberly Jones took a break from nursing Royal Reign and decided to drop her long-delayed mixtape, Hardcore 2K14. Now I am not a fan of artists doing Part II’s of their classic albums and Lil Kim is no different, leave well enough alone! Part II almost never lives up to the original, and that’s the case with this mixtape/album. Now before Lil Kim fans go getting all up in arms, I am Day one Lil Kim fan! I want her to BE GREAT, but I am NOT HERE for this lackluster music. Kimberly’s most recent releases sound like she is not even trying. So if you’re not spitting like the Quiet Storm(Remix) or Big Mama Thang, I don’t desire to hear it.
This new mixtape includes 11 tracks and guest appearances from Jadakiss, Yo Gotti, Cassidy(
What Career Crypt Did They Pull Him Out Of), and French Montana. The songs on this mixtape sound like Kimberly is trying to fit into what “the kids” are doing today, and honestly it doesn’t work. Real Sick featuring Jadakiss is probably the song that sounds the closest to the Lil Kim I miss. The song samples Nortorious B.I.G and is reminiscent of early 95-96. This song is probably the only one that I really like off the whole mixtape. If we could have more tracks in this vein I think the mixtape would have been much better.
In my opinion the rest of the mixtape falls flat. Dead Gal Walking, is Kim’s failed attempted at Trini Rap, where is Inga(
Foxy Brown) when you need her because this isn’t it. Kim also tries to get her Lauryn Hill on with Whenever You See Me which features Cassidy, and samples The Fugees’s, Ready or Not, no thank you! Work The Pole, I assume is supposed to be Lil Kim’s ode to the strip club, it samples a 50 cent song not sure which one, but NO!
At some point someone needs to pull Kimberly to the side and let her know that this lazy ass rap isn’t going to cut it out what with Nicki and Remy out here. Someone please shake her! If you aren’t going to at least try Kim, why bother. I expected so much more from a hip hop legend like yourself, but again I am disappointed with this mixtape. Stop trying to fit into what everyone else is doing and just be Lil Kim! I am glad that you are making music that isn’t all about Nicki Minaj tho, that’s a step forward. As always I encourage you to judge for yourself, listen to the mixtape HERE
Final Rating: 1.5/5

Jermaine Cole AKA J. Cole has released a new mixtape!
J. Cole has has great year with the release of his highly successful sophomore album, getting Jay-Z’s original Roc-A-Fella Chain, and giving a rousing performance on VH1’s Superbowl Blitz. Whirlwind year would be putting it lightly. Cole has released a free mixtape on his 29 th birthday as a gift to his fans. The mixtape includes 11 tracks. Cole has also started his own label called Dreamville with Interscope Records.
Haven’t had a chance to listen yet, but if it’s anything like Born Sinner, it will definitely be a good listen.
