A new jam from one of my favorite Southern rappers, “Lac Lac”, is a track that shows off K.R.I.T’s production and his sometimes quick-sometimes smooth delivery. The beat is laid back, but does everything it needs to do to get you to nod your head along. The chorus has a Bone Thugz feel that boasts a catchiness K.R.I.T delivers with his signature Southern slang. A$AP Ferg lends his character to the second verse fitting in with ease.
I can’t wait to hear more from Krizzle and see what happens when his new effort Cadillactica hits retail.
This is still one of my favorite songs ever. If you lived in NC when this came out then you know the hype was real. I was lucky enough to experience the energy at the local skating rink, school dances and backyard barbecues. This song and his first album bring back a lot of memories for me. I still get hella hyped for the chorus. This is also one of my favorite beats Timbaland ever did. There’s a handful of bangers on Petey’s debut, Diary of A Sinner.
(Side Note : Petey is in jail right now for gun related charges. He’ll be out mid 2014 though.)
I wish these dudes would’ve got bigger than they did. This song is classic to me. I thought they were going to be the Kentucky fried version of Bone Thugs or Wu-Tang. Anthony Hamilton kills the hook too! The end of the video where they’re all in the house makes me miss meals like that. I’m trying to stop eating pork, but damn… I love it.
"Just.Crew.Shit" Official Video Bam Circa ‘86 Produced by The Visualists/Directed by Eric Casas
The homie Bamalamadingdong dropped a video for his new song “Just.Crew.Shit”. As a day in the life of Bam and the homies; the video is filled with relaxed visuals, locales the posse usually haunts, and the typical tom foolery you can see the 8th & G Gang partaking in. The video opens in Dope Sauce, circles the block, makes a pit stop by 5&A Dime, and ends where it started as the song closes.
To stay up with Bam follow him on Twitter : @BamCirca86, Instagram : @BamCirca86, and here on Tumblr : bamcirca86blog.
Enjoy Bam’s new chillin’ anthem, and stay tuned for more from the 8th & G crew.
When Del the Funky Homosapien is your first customer you know it’s going to be a weird Wednesday. Shout out to one of the illest dudes to ever hold a mic for coming through @5andadime. Shout out to Spencer for the shirt and the picture.
Here’s some new mixtapes I’m into right now. If you’re a Hip Hop fan then give these a chance…
Yelawolf & DJ Paul - Black Fall (EP) Everybody’s favorite Alabama born emcee (or mine, at least) teams up with DJ Paul of 3-6 Mafia fame to drop a five song EP. Quick-fire lyricism and Southern bangers galore. Yela does his best work when unrestricted by a label.
Flatbush Zombies - BetterOffDead The abstract yet entertaining trio from Flatbush, NY deliver a drug-fueled, hyperactive mixtape full of braggadocio, socio-political grievances, and NY flavored jams. Under all that is a subtle 90s influence that further sets them apart from the crowd. This is the first stuff I’ve heard from these guys and I’m a fan for sure.
Lecrae - Church Clothes 2 I’m not into labeling people, especially based off their religious views, gender, sexual orientation, or anything else. Whether you call this dude a “christian” rapper or whatever, he’s a dope emcee. Here, Lecrae drops the highly anticipated follow up to his crazy successful Church Clothes. Not listening is considered a blasphemous.
