Your shit is underground, our shit is underwater

Hip hip huzzah - the somewhat promising Ty$, who constantly seems to be flip-flopping between a simple silent $ symbol in his name like Ma$e and the more convoluted moniker of Ty Dolla $ign, has finally become a proper solo artist on his new mixtape Beach Chair by dispersing with the Rap-de-Rap services of YG and that Joe Mo$e$ grunt who kept unbalancing the Rap & Bullshit equilibrium on his songs when they'd constantly show up to rhyme about set-trippin' and snapbacks.

Mixtape highlight Zone'n is a subaquatic Auto-Tune jam which makes ya boy Greil Brother Marquis right chea feel like I've got a mermaid swimming in my living room or I'm dancing in the rain with kids climbing up mountains and shit; both handy mental distractions since Ty$ veers dangerously close to Rap & Bullshit Game Ched Evans territory here as he plys the song's various girls with drink and drugs until they're barely conscious and then porks them. Good enough for Anna Faris in Observe And Report, then good enough for imaginary women in sleazy Rap & Bullshit ballads too?

"Fuck with drugs, fall in love
no Mac Miller, I'm a pussy killer
said she love me, I don't feel her"

Bonus audio processor related Rapper malapropisms : here a Jadakiss interview where he calls Auto-Tune "Audio-Tunes", one of his great mispronunciations alongside that time he said "I'm on a higher ekk-ey-lon" on Welcome To The Roc :

"My Cabana" stayed on repeat for 2 weeks before this shit dropped and lo and behold this foolish young negro remixed and re-recorded this thing to sound like shit.

He makes up for that misstep with the skit at the end of "Know Y I Came" which promptly rolls into "Another One"

Also, "4 A Young" gets played at absurdly loud levels in the ride.

Re-recording a viral single for a mixtape is a crime that should be punishable by a week in a Bosnian prison.

Agreed on 4 A Young. I've not even listened to Another One due to Dom Kennedy being on it, though.

The worst part bout redoing My Cabana is all the confusions gonna make some people not cop how it was one of the best songs of 2012.

Never thought audio-tunes would evolve to the point half my favourites atm are boxed out, it used to just be the odd N Luv With A Stripper/Me And My Drank exception.

"Beach Hou$e" is my favorite project that was released this year. And it's solely due to the fact that there's no YG and very little Joe Moses, who both flat-out suck at rapping. He's like The Weeknd if he was from Los Angeles instead of Toronto.

Do you have the original “My Cabana”?

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Only a rip off YouTube.
