Ab-Soul (@abdashsoul) | “Closure” | Produced by: Sounwave (@sounwaveTDE)

This song “Closure” is a song off of Ab-Soul’s newest album “These Days…”. For those wondering, the song played before “Closure” starts is called “Sapiosexual” off of the same album, “These Days…”

I never have much to write on Soul’s music. It’s not that I don’t like Ab-Soul as an artist so I don’t want to write, I truly love Soulo for his craft. It’s just when I go to write about Soulo, I know that his words in his songs are simply too powerful for me to even try to elaborate. I’m thankful Ab-Soul made it at a young age. I’m excited to see his growth in the future.

My Personal Favorite Bar(s):

Ab-Soul:
"I don’t regret a second that we shared, hell no.

In fact I often wish that you was here, right now, ow, ow.

Cause’ when Lori left me you was right there

Lord knows you had the right care”.

Again, to reiterate, I love Ab-Soul and his music.

- James

¡MAYDAY! x Murs (@maydaymusic) x (@murs) | “Brand New Get Up” 

One of the best collaborations in today’s hip hop scene is these guys right here. The energy that ¡MAYDAY! has brought out of Murs & the lyricism that Murs has brought out of ¡MAYDAY! is simply incredible. Strange Music continues to grow bigger and better. This video inspired me to pour a glass of Jack Daniel’s on the rocks. Thank you ¡MURSDAY!.

My Personal Favorite Bar(s):

Murs: 
"Bullet in the Billboard charts, ‘bout to kill the game. Load up the mic and make your favorite rapper feel the pain. B-b-b bustin’ at ‘em, it’s like we bussin’ atoms. About to blow the fuck up until we touchin’ Saturn".

Bernz:
"Top down music up, speeding down the interstate. Just so I could feel alive, just to feel my heart race. See I’m on my own shit, play me at your own risk. Broke outta my comfort zone and now I’m feeling focused".

Wrekonize:
"Get up and move like this may just be your last of chances. I been taking all kinds of stances. This buildings cold as ice and prone to avalanches. I need you all to move through sexual advances".

Looking back at this video only proves how hard Curtiss King works & how important D.I.Y. is. Keep pushing fam, you’re on your way to your dreams.

Missy Elliott (@MissyElliott) | “Work It” | Produced by: Timbaland (@Timbaland)

Since today is the first day that we start our Throwback Thursday segment, I felt that it was only right to post three videos today to start it off strong. There isn’t a better way to start this segment off other than posting one of the best rappers to ever do it. This banger that Timbaland & Missy Elliott threw together will forever be one of the most well known songs in Hip Hop. Whether guy or girl, these lyrics will be shouted at every event for eternity.

My Personal Favorite Bar(s):

Missy Elliott:
"Love the way my ass go bum-bum-bum-bum. Keep your eyes on my bum-bum-bum-bum-bum. You think you can handle this badonkadonk-donk".

Noa James (@noajames) | “Die The Nicest” | Prorduced By: Da Flatlyners | On Knocksteady T.V. (@knocksteady)

Noa James or also known as Young Orca, carries two very different rapping styles. His styles are similar to Yin & Yang. On one side, the Hockey Masked Haitian slays beats with raunchy lyrics such as fisting a midget, and on the other side, Noa clearly is one intelligent being that knows the true values of life. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to sit through a conversation with Young Orca over at The Common Ground (The Vibe) in Riverside California, you know how insightful Noa James is. I’m proud of Noa James & all that he has overcome in his lifetime. The man is an idol in my eyes.


My Personal Favorite Bar(s):

Noa James:
"…but sometimes I feel, I’m out of place,like a whale in the forest,but where I’m at, I work hard for it. You can’t ignore passion this enormous, I put my all in it, this music healed my heart yea, I had a hole in it, big enough that the earth can fall in it. Don’t treat life like a lemon, it will breakdown on you every chance you give it. So only positive @ replies, and mention,I remember being my death bed ,slipping in a coma, beggin’ him let my story be told. Like, please let me finish".

"This is for my passionate people, who appreciate life. Life is gamble, but she is perfect to blow on my pair of dice. Escape to paradise escape the parasites, some people is prepared to shoot your parachute before you even touch the sky, I can ask why or keep it movin,and add on to the movement. You know the story, you gotta have the guts to get the glory. Create your own, live free, die strong,let me tell you why i does this. See, my grandfather was taking care of his children’s children when he should of been chillin’. I do this for the OG’s who created the foundation and didn’t get to see the building, It’s dedication".

Okay, 89% of the lyrics are my favorite part of the song. I’m sorry that Noa is an incredible lyricist & everything he spits is out of this world.

Grieves (@Grievesmusic) | “Recluse” | Produced by: Sapient (@sapientkills) | rhymesayers

As always Grieves & his team over at Rhymesayers put together incredible visuals for their songs. The song “Recluse” is explained by Grieves as "… a song that stems from these crazy-ass hangovers I get. The older I get, the worse they become. They shouldn’t have made whiskey taste so good". As a proud whiskey advocate, I must say the taste of Jack Daniel’s on the rocks is magnificent. Shout out to Dj Fundo for partying in the back of the video.

My Personal Favorite Bar(s):

Grieves:
I guess that I’ve become a product of the castle gates. Dug a moat around my heart and filled it up with hate”

"Fade in to the background and drink until the rooms spinnin’. 
So move some, there ain’t nothing left to see here. The only words I’m a pay attention to are ‘free beer’”.

"What’s the point of making friends when you grew up w
ith a devil and couple of pretend ones. I guess that I don’t know the difference when it comes to space, you’re either leaving me alone or all up in my face. And lately, with the way that things are going, I don’t taste the sugar in your words for me to give a shit about what you say. Yup - I’m crazy and irrational. Always tell the truth so that you can call me ‘asshole’ I prefer the black hole over the sun. Plant a seed up in the sound garden; watered with rum”.
