Big Sean ft. Jay Z & Kanye West
Label: 
G.O.O.D. Music

Once again G.O.O.D Music brings us a banger that will make every club and every car system automatically 10 times better by just playing this track. This track mainly focusing on Big Sean and featuring the two gods of Hip-Hop (Jay-Z & Kanye) brings what Hip-Hip has been missing, which is hard slapping beats and the lyrical smashing ability of the MCs. This track will appear on the G.O.O.D Music compilation album named "Cruel Summer". The song will without a doubt take over the airwaves everywhere and once you listen to it you will know why. PLAY THIS TRACK.

On his latest effort, God Forgives, I Don’t, Rick Ross commits the by-now pretty common flaw of doing collabos with MCs who put him to shame. Andre 3000’s guest spot on “Sixteen” is the highlight of the album, with a typically dexterous and never-ending verse followed-up by a badass guitar solo. Equally worthwhile are Dr. Dre and Jay-Z’s verses on “3 Kings,” which boast a raw confidence only veterans can claim. Ross bought along a decently talented gang of beatmakers for this record, too. The Jake One beat on “3 Kings” completes it, and makes it the album’s most listenable track.

Mercy is the epitmoe of Kanye West and his crew of lyrical bosses of G.O.O.D Music. The beat hits with a vengeance and if your system has sub-woofers then you will be in heaven. Pusha-T, Big Sean, and 2 Chainz give their one verses that could kill any others in the game right now and that is why Kanye recruited them. Kanye only puts the best on his tracks and when you listen to the track you will agree. Wither your in your car, in the club, walking to class, or sitting at the computer this song will have you rapping the words and bobbing your head to the beat.

Rick Ross is back with another single off his album named "God Forgives, I Don't". If the album's name does not tell you what Rozay is about this song will. This is one of the songs you play right before you play football or wrestle or anything that requires you to be hyped. I recommend turning this track on and grabbing the bass switch and turn it to 100% so you can fully feel the song(literally and figuratively). Ross' lyrics again are simple but do exactly what he wants them them to do which is to get your blood pumping. This deserves a definite spin.

Nas feat. Rick Ross
Label: 
Def Jam Music Group

One of the founding fathers of modern hip-hop is ready to get back into the game with this new track titled "Accident Murderers". He also calls on Rick Ross to put his boss status on the track. Nas and Rozay give their thoughts on fake gangsters that they've seen around the block and call them out for being "accidents". The beat is relatively simple with a nice piano and chorus that catches ones ears and attention. The track sounds like vintage Nas and is worth the spin.

Ludacris has been in the cave hibernating for the last year or two and finally has awoken. This track is definitely not one of his best but gives us something to remember the :King of The South" by. The track is geared to the dance club with out a doubt due to its catchy upbeat chorus and beat. He samples an old track to create his club banger that will give the incentive to have the guys get their backs off the wall since all the girls will be dancing to the beat.

Label:

2 Chainz might at this point in time be my favorite rapper aside from Kanye. His lyrics to the untrained ear might sound un-intelligent or dumb but for the seasoned hip-hop listeners its pure genius. Example: "I'll Steal your girl and feed her to my mattress". This song also features one of the bigger hip-hoppers of Drake who actually provides a surprisingly hard verse and chorus. The song exemplifies the true hip-hop culture by giving a hard beat with even harder lyrics on top of it. Wither in the club or in your car or in your headphones this track is worth a listen.

Rick Ross aka Rozay brings us another hype track that makes you want to explode with energy. On this track he brings one of his colleagues from MMG (Meek Mill) to add to the hype and excitement. The beat of the track has that well known slapping of the bass hitting your head as if your mom caught you stealing cookies out of the jar. The lyrics of Rozay as always are simple but get his point across, which is that he is a boss. Meek Mill comes in with his monstrous confidence to finish of the track with lyrics.

The names on this track should speak for themselves. One of new kings of hip-hop (Rick Ross) brings in the veteran hard hitters of Dr. Dre and Jay-Z to kill on this track. The track minus its bars is perfection, it has a funky feel because of the incorporation of the bass guitar riff, piano, drums and strings. Once you add the bars of the "3 Kings" it automatically becomes a track that you can turn on repeat and bob your head for hours.

I can't even think of any words to describe this album without being corny. It's just so good. I bought this album the day it came out and have listened to at least one track a day since then. Frank Ocean is a genius. His lyrics are beautiful, his voice is perfect, the production is flawless...everything about this album makes me cry tears of joy. I will never take Channel Orange out of my cd player in my car.
