Operation YOUtree

Meme-inspired Ratchet & Bullshit with explicit nods to Newcleus and Suga Free is something that feels like it was put together in a laboratory purely to appeal to my most feckless instincts. This wasn't something I was expecting to type, but I LIKE WHAT I LIKE: the combination of Eric Bellinger, Game & Problem over '80s synth-rap classics are now two for two in 2014.

"As soon as I smash, I'm on the gas
The man in the mirror, I'm smashin' through the glass"

Jae Murphy ft. Game, Eric Bellinger & Problem - You Playin' (This Could Be Us)
(From You Playin' (This Could Be Us) single; 2014)

Was gonna suggest that Eric Bellinger has the best batting average of any mercenary Ratchet & Bullshit sanger this year before I remembered his vocals on Marcus Moody's Juve sound like they've been Pro-Toolsed in by accident from another song entirely. Is Juve in any way noteworthy other than its novelty-factor of being another Mustard-produced 2014 rap radio minor-hit by a Californian rapper that interpolates something from the 400 Degreez track list? Moreover, where's the love for Solja Rags?

I think "Tha G Code" is Juve's best cd.

This posts speaking to me. Suga Frees the become a Ratchet touchstone for some reason, this is like the 4th time I heard him referenced lately. hope he capitalizes off of it.

lol hows no one made the Freddie/Fredro connection til now?
