I'm takin' mine off the top
whores watch as we board the yacht like George C. Scott"
Roc Marciano - We Ill
(From Reloaded album; 2012)
In which Roc Marciano gives a lesson to Jay Electronica in how you're supposed to rhyme on percussion-free production without sounding like Mindbender Futurama's Mindbender Loves You show over a beat which sounds like the score for some mythical James Bond Vs. Jim Jump from King Of New York spin-off movie. Still not sold on Marciano as a great album artist given some of his supine choices in production, but when he does get it right, he makes N.Y Rap sound effortless again.
flex up and I'm whackin' n*ggas
these hoes like action figures : no brain, heart, and no passion' in 'em"
Bo Deal ft. Zed Zilla - Nothin' Like Me
(From Welcome To Klanville mixtape; 2012)
In which Bo Deal continues his recent one-hot-song-every-mixtape average and Zed Zilla partially redeems himself after his dismal Rents Due 2 mixtape. I got two related questions with this one : who'd a thunk Bo Deal would be the only good Brick Squad weed-carrier still knocking out the odd good tune in late 2012, and is it true that that Zed Zilla is the Rapper $tarlito takes multiple subliminal shots at on Clap For Him? You know who you are, we know who you ain't etc.
