Generic list post: April 2019

Obligatory wrap-up post of those songs I've played most during the month when Drake's Curse struck the red half of Manchester. Lads, it's Tottenham Audrey Graham. Hold on, we're going Hamburg on a thursday night.

Bizzie Boyz - Crazy Hard! (1988/2011)
Pete Rock - Street Dreams (Instrumental) (1996/2019)
Rich Blue - Kikan (2019)
Hit-Boy & SOB X RBE - Family Not A Group (2019)
Hoyt Axton - Telephone Booth (Ole Smokey Edit) (1974/2016)

Other notables: not technically a song, but I've been jammin' J Hus' Daily Duppy freestyle too ("big bunda, she in the Bundesliga"); that Children's Story demo from the deluxe reissue of Slick Rick's debut album is more like a Ruler's Back-era sequel where Rick only had time to write one verse; props to ANU for finding the first notable Baby Soulja song since Dirty; Doe Boy's Walk Down is 2019's first entry in Boyz-N-The-Hood-core canon; didn't like anything on that new Rico Nasty EP meself.

Is there a definitive Boyz-in-da-Hood-core list?

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Notable tracks in the Boyz-n-The-Hood-core canon:

B-Legit - B-Legit
Jim Jones ft. Cam'Ron, The Game etc - Certified Gangstaz
Jacka & Lee Majors - D Boyz-n-The-Hood
Jimmy Wopo - Elm Street
SOB X RBE - Calvin Cambridge
Boone - Pop A Perc
Trina - Fuck Boy
Freddie Gibbs ft. 03 Greedo - Death Row

The N.W.A movie is definitely responsible for the influx of B-n-T-H-core tracks in the past 4 years.

Haha Drake is such a fucking cornball.

Hopefully Mozzy and Philthy beefing will force Mozzy to step it up again.

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Not feeling how some of Mozzy's phrasing on that reminds me of Drake.

Husalah's picture with Robbie Keane is still the only good example of north Americans embracing football. Hus' probably thought it was Roy Keane, though.

Can't find that Rich Blue mixtape anywhere. Does Kikan exists outside soundcloud?

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Only on Soundcloud I think.

Anonymous said... very depressed at this Slick Rick No Stylist verse.

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Fuck that.

Need a Slick Rick remix of Bricks & Walls.

Rick adopting that flow at least kinda makes sense after listening to Rulers Back recently but how bout this new mc ren song 0_0

10 years after Coke Wave I’m just now figuring out that there’s an extended version of “Bricks & Walls”

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Oh shit, I'd never heard that either.

trap ren isn't horrible but very baffling considering he spent the last 30 years not changing his style at all
