My bad yall. This series was put on hold because a nigga been handling business with the Polite Coolery podcast (listen above) and the Phase 3 project (Coming soon) so I haven’t been listening to music not made by Nipsey Hussle for some months. Well I’m back now and I might be a lil bit rusty soooooooooooo……….
What the fuck did I listen to yesterday?!
LABOR - KV THOMPSON
Kayla out here making legendary Pretty Willie-esque type tunes that jam while I’m reclined on my leather seats in my whip on my way to the tacos in 71 degree weather. Bout to say “Lemme in baby cause I curr baby don’t be scared baby just lemme in” the next time a woman go through my messages and lock me out the crib. It gotta work in my favor.
CATCH ME - 94 NODD
94 Nodd back with the convertible music I asked for. Now I just need a mixtape full of this type of shit. When the champagne around this the only shit I wanna hear.
DON’T SLEEP - CEEJAY SPACELY
He said he ate a bowl of Ramen with Jiraya. Off the strength I fuck wit his music because of that. Homie was floating on this with his flow. Short and straight to the point.
PUSH IT - SEALS
Welp the St.Louis Jamie Foxx is back. The Art Game Swiss Army Knife cause this guy can do it all is back with another anthem for me to trap to and flood the streets with. My nigga Seals went MegaMan X on the second verse. When he said “I done leveled up so much cause I took so many losses” I felt that shit cause the real ones out here taking risks for their art and losses come with it. Keep Pushin.
QUOTABLES - MVPGO (VIDEO)
Aye this video tight MVP always got bars but the shit that got me crying laughing is the ad libs at the end where said “Baby Mother Killer…It happens in real life” I dunno why that shit hilarious to me but it is. I’m a start saying “It happens in real life” after every fact I speak from now on. Check out homie video for “Quotables” below.
ONE FRIDAY NIGHT - Bryant Stewart
Are we gonna keep it 10 outta 10 or are we gonna halfway hustle? After listening to “One Friday Night” Bryant Stewart one of the most consistent artist in the game. Never heard anything mid from the guy and it’s always high quality. Play “Nasty” at my wedding with all my side hoes in attendance. Please.
GOIN NOWHERE - don’t care
Why can’t this song be played in the Donnie Darko movie? Why can’t we make this a thing. Probably the best song I’ve heard from the duo and it’s perfect for my Friday nights as a veteran introvert cause hoe I aint goin nowhere.
HOPELESS AND ROMANTICIZING - BLVCK SPVDE
I remember we were on the south and I believe it was at Smino's listening session for his album and I was talking to Spvde about the game and the hustle and I told him I'm done with making music and he looked at me and said "You can never be done." That meant a lot to me. Every time he's complimented what I've done musically I've always honored that as a stripe on my jacket that matters. In St.Louis Blvck Spvde is our Miles Davis, our John Coltrane, our Duke Ellington. I can't really put his inspiration or his music into words. Just listen man.
MISS YOUR FACE 3 - DICTATE DIGITAL
Time for us to go home and time for me to call my shorty but we can all play this fire mix doing whatever we do. Roll one. Peace.
