Leak Alert: Drake – Shut It Down ft. The Dream

31 May

Drake

I’m going to keep this simple. Drake has restored any credibility that The Dream may have had before he recently released the Aaliyah ‘One In A Million’ cover. ‘Shut It Down’ is smooth, sexy and easy on the ears. Even though I’m not the biggest lover of slow songs, we will be ‘thanking you later’ Drake if all the material on the album is this good. Fact.

‘Shut It Down’ will be available on Drake’s debut album, ‘Thank Me Later’ which is due 15th June.

Video: Tyga – G-Shit ft. Chris Brown

27 Apr

Remember the leak I posted a while back for this track? Well, Breezy and Tyga have now put out  a video for “G-Shit”. These two seem to be banging out the videos at the moment, “Holla At Me” was hot. I’m definitely a fan of Chris Brown’s rapping, he’s got the swagg. If all their collaborations are as good as this then their pending  mixtape, “Fan Of A Fan” will be off the hook.

Minaj: I Don’t Want To Sound Like “Other Female Artists”

19 Apr

Nicki Minaj

Cash Money records has announced that Nicki Minaj will be releasing her highly anticipated debut album this autumn. Hopefully, the tracks on the album will be 1000% better than that monstrosity “Massive Attack” featuring Sean Garrett. I find it hard to believe how she can have great features but poor solo stuff. Hmmmm.

Nicki has even gone on the record to say that she doesn’t want to release material that sounds like “other female artists” in the game: “I want to start a new lane that one day, 10 years from now, girls will say, ‘I’m more of a Nicki Minaj type.”

Well, I have to break it to Miss Nicki, that with her ‘Black Barbie’ act the words ‘Lil Kim’ come to mind and the fact that she’s just gone and recorded “Hold Yuh” with Gyptian (where her flow sounds awfully like Foxy on “Oh Yeah”) she’s going to have to try a bit harder to get away from comparisons.

Anyways, I’ll be looking out for the new Minaj album. Guaranteed you will hear my thoughts on it.

Leak Alert: Gyptian – Hold Yuh ft. Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj

I definitely did not expect a reggae collabo from Nicki Minaj and certainly not with Gyptian. To get straight to the point Nicki’s flow on this track reminds me of Foxy Brown on “Oh Yeah”.  Honestly, the sound is not the worst I’ve heard but it’s boring and Nicki is only featured on the first verse – she has some good bars though.

Leak Alert: Lloyd – Bad Girl (Freaky Girl) ft. Twista + Set Me Free ft. Mystikal

15 Mar

Lloyd

There have been a few releases over the past few days which I have not posted because to be honest I just didn’t want to. However, Interscope’s latest signing Young Goldie aka Lloyd has two leaks floating around at the net at the moment.

Set Me Free is a silky smooth joint that had me singing along, but Mystikal’s feature totally spoils the track. However, Bad Girl (Freaky Girl) featuring Twista serves as a worthy follow up to the Young Money and Lloyd collaboration, Bedrock with its good vibe and catchy lyrics.

Young Money – Every Girl [Tune of the Day]

23 Feb

It’s Young Money. Does this pick for Tune of the day need an explanation?  Nope.

Young Money – Bedrock [US Tune of The Day]

16 Jan

It’s Young Money – need I say more! There’s a lot of hype about these guys right now, in particular their First Lady, Nicki ‘fake booty’ Minaj. I’m definitely going to be getting their album, I don’t see how an album with Weezy, Lloyd, Drake and Nicki Minaj on it wouldn’t be worth listening to?!
