Generic list post: april 2015

Obligatory wrap-up post of the songs I've listened to during the month when Brendan Soderberg was exposed for fraudulent journalism and going apeshit on a woman IRL in much the same way he went apeshit on Katherine St. Asaph and Ruth Saxelby on the internet. Also the month when Jay-Z finally made an even worse business decision than the time he bought Artful Dodger for $15 million.

Rated X - Rated X Is 2 (1990)
Jiggs & Cheeks - Hustle Til I Die (1999)
Rosco P. Coldchain ft. Pharrell - I Can't Help (2003)
Consequence - Caught Up In The Hype (2005)
Audio Push - Normally (2015)
Nef The Pharaoh - Big Tymin' (2015)
Young Thug ft. Birdman - Constantly Hating (2015)
Kap G ft. T.I. & David Banner - F**k La Policia (remix) (2015)
DEV - Parade (2015)
Busy Signal - #Text Message (2015)
Disasterpeace - Old Maid (2015)
The Square - Lewisham McDeez (2015)

(Can't believe Laweez Haynes didn't finally reveal her identity in for the expanded video version of Novelist's Lewisham McDeez.)

What else? TREE's Well didn't have much replay value but it ain't 'alf bad for a a couple of minutes of lyrical exercise over some sample of a Gregorian school choir; N Dis by Mic Terror definitely would've been my shit if it didn't sound like it'd been recorded with an AIWA dictaphone; Daddy and Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh) sound light years better than all the new songs on this latest Rich Homie Quan mixtape; also very much feelin' Trapping Ain't Dead by Section Boyz but I can't bring myself to stan for a Grime song and a Road-Rap song in the same post without some sort of caveat.

1. That Alley Boy 2013 song(RNGM)topped everything in April for me 2. Where the hell can I find a mp3 of "Rated X is 2" 3. Still haven't seen "It Follows"

EL Guapo, iTunes and Amazon have got the first Rated X for sale now.

Everybody should cop the MP3s of Rated X Is 2 and Be Cool To Your Girl, imo.

just caught the Laweez Haynes reference there :)

Rated X's 2nd albums dead disappointing, especially cos the titles so good.

They gave Black Sheep a career trajectory to follow.

Finally got to watch "It Follows" and I am scared really bad. Good film, good score, though.Liking "03 - Jay" the most.

Whole soundtrack is very durable.
