Free Download | I Wanna Benz - YG, Nipsey Hussle, & 50 Cent

I don’t know why I’m feeling this song so much; could it be the 90’s style production complete with low-pass filters and 808’s. YG has been one of Def Jam’s most profitable investments, and despite the label’s reputation being in the gutter, they still manage to drop free heaters like this to take everyone’s attention away from the fact that they’ve screwed over a handfull of great artists.

Money chasing is the core subject of this song, as it is with most rap singles. The old school sound is inspired by an era where banging and pimping were the ghetto’s key routes to fortune, and the sample at the beginning is from a 1993 classic gangster film Menace 2 Society. Boyz N The Hood is my hood movie of choice, but regardless, this song emanates the qualities of that entire era of music — complete with a 50 Cent feature — with modernized production and mastering. In a world where all you know is drugs, death, and dough, it isn’t hard to imagine why a fly ass Mercedes is the end goal. Whether you like this sound or not, it’s good to pay homage to such a rich cultural era. Cop the free DL, show YG some love on Twitter and Soundcloud, and go watch some throwback movies on Netflix today.

Mailbox Money – Nipsey Hussle (Mixtape)

January 4, 2015


Free Download | Mailbox Money - Nipsey Hussle (Mixtape)

Nipsey Hussle released his anticipated project Mailbox Money just six hours before the ball dropped on New Years Eve, so technically this is his last project of 2014. You may recognize some of the tracks on this tape like “Count Up That Loot”, and/or “Be Here For Awhile” feat Vernando but the remainder of the tape contains a number of different sounds. Engineers like THC, DJ Mustard, Rance & Ralo of 1500 or Nothin, Mike Keys, Drewbyrd, Hit-Boy, and several more talented producers bring their unique sounds into the tape to give Nip a new and organic sound. I really like the way Nip sounds on this project but I really was on the fence about a few of the features. But if I had to name the features you need to check out on this project I’d say Rick Ross, K Camp, Buddy, Pacman, Dom Kennedy, and Trae are all good listens. Also make sure to check out “Killa” and “A Miracle”.

Don’t Forget Us (Cookin’ Soul Remix) – Nipsey Hussle & Dom Kennedy

Download Don't Forget Us (Cookin' Soul Remix) - Nipsey Hussle & Dom Kennedy

This soft, Dom Kennedy assisted track first appeared on Nip’s mixtape Crenshaw as a bonus track for those whom felt compelled to spend 100$ to show their support for the west coast rapper. JetLife affiliated producer Cookin’ Soul decided to take it and put a classy spin on things mixing the original verses, and instruments with a 90’s vibe in Jodeci’s classic track “What About US”. Cookin’ Soul engineers a lazy, yet classical instrumental. The dusty Jodeci record rolls effortlessly alongside Nip and Dom as they spit about the grind, a life of fame, and their one fear: being forgotten. Hit the button, roll up, and enjoy the smoke dance to this tranquil piece. If you’re diggin’ it make sure to hit Cookin’ Soul with a follow on Twitter, and peep his soundcloud for more engineering gold.

Get Wit It – Ray Rizzy & Nipsey Hussle

Download Get Wit It - Ray Rizzy & Nipsey Hussle

Coming at ya’ll with a fresh banger to help you get the sleep out of your eye this morning, courtesy of a new artist to our library Ray Rizzy. When I first heard the beat drop I already knew that this track was something I wanted to get to our students, but although this track seems like it might be all hype there’s some dope lyricism all throughout this track. I originally thought Nipsey was going to provide all the star power in this joint, but Rizzy comes out with bars like a prison and proves Hussle isn’t the only MC to watch out for. Hit that play button this morning if you’re looking for a little pick me up, or if you’re just feeling like the shit.

Black Faces – Childish Gambino

Free Download | Black Faces - Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino leaked this track off his new Mixtape via his website, and the anticipation for his album (which still doesn’t have a release date) is pretty high. He brings in his buddy Nipsey Hussle, and gets a more Southern-Thug-Ghetto feel, something that is a little bit of a twist for Childish. Check it out.
