Rap songs that aren't on YouTube but really should be #8

Two songs from Yungstar & Den-Den's Crooked Profit Vol. 1 compilation that've both appeared on here previously but still haven't found their way to YouTube. To put that into some sort of perspective, consider this: two of the definitive songs from Yungstar's camp are nowhere to be found on the 'Tube, yet every the entire oeuvre of the Action Bronson to Yungstar's Ghostface is up on there.

Yungstar ft. Lil' Flex - Knockin' Pictures (remix)
(From Yungstar & Den-Den's Crooked Profit Vol. 1 compilation; 2002)



Lil' Flex - Freestyle

Texas-related note: glad to hear TREE sounds like TREE again after his recent Trap Genius album was little more than a PowerPoint Presentation on how he could rap in other people's flows. Who's down with O.P.F? MC TREE G! Very impressive on the Invasion Of The Tongue Snatchers tip, but If I wanted to hear Quavo impersonations from men who are old enough to know better then I can just download everything by the Sauce Twinz. As Henry Rollins' boyfriend nearly once sang, Texas is the reason that the Migos flow is dead.

These are great. Always got time for Yungstar "Knockin Pictures" in any form. Throwed Yung Playa does suffer from too many guests, but it also contains some of my favorite Houston material. Never made the Riff Raff connection. I can see it to some extent.

The main thing that annoys me about Throwed Yung Playa is that Yungstar and Lil' Flex sound so alike it's difficult to work out who is who.

Are we gonna get a post about the Young Thug album?

I thought his older mixtapes were unlistenable bollocks, but I've enjoyed him as a loosie artist since Stoner.

Halftime is my shit but I've been jamming that since it leaked last month. Couple of other tracks on there I'm digging but I'm not interested in him as a full length project rapper.

Albums/mixtapes are terrible formats which need to die already, tbh. EPs + loosie singles >>>>>

"Halftime" is a highlight for sure

Si Mane Price said...

Numbers is the other song that's inspired me to remunerate him for it to the tune of 99p.

Virtual Reality Caravan is clearly an advanced stage of Cosmic Unconsciousness.
