Generic list post: October 2016

Obligatory wrap-up post of those songs I've played most during the month when the Howard Hawks of Horror told me that Ice-T's The Tower is his favourite rap song to sample the Halloween theme. Makes sense that Carpenter stands up when he performs his music live because all maniacal geniuses from Mozart to James Murdoch are so consumed by their work that sitting down is a physical impossibility. Old bean was like a dad-dancing geriatric version of DJ Alfredo in Ibiza.

Casual - Who Do That (1997)
Casual - The Best At It (1997)
Doni F of Break In Crew - No Luv (2007)
Young Devi D - Young Fly N*gga (2015)
Young Devi D ft. Brandoshis - Don't Judge Me (2016)
YG - One Time Comin' (2016)
J. Stalin - West Oakland N*gga (2016)
White Gzus ft. GLC - G Is For Green (2016)
D.R.A.M - Workaholic (2016)
Kwamz & Flava ft. Coast2Coast - Stop Stalling (2016)

Other notables: only heard it for the first time yesterday, but Diamonds Talkin' Back gotta be my favourite 2 Chainz song since MFN Right; it's cool that a Curren$y & $tarlito track finally exists even if I'll probably never listen to it again; Jimmy Wopo and the WNC lads both disappointed me with their new singles this month; Kap G's Girlfriend remix with Ty Dolla $ign & Quavo really doesn't need to exist; Eminem's Campaign Speech sounds like "Tom Cruise mom shoes"-era Canibus recorded a 7 minute parody of El-P's solo career; Shawty Lo is dead but the influence of D4L lives on in the songs of DB Tha General's former weed carrier-turnt-Philthy Rich's current chain polisher; listened to NBA YoungBoy's new mixtape and 38 Baby is still his only song which warrants the hype imho.

That 'Meanwhile' tape is so, so good. Got to love raps that sound like they were recorded in a fridge and mastered on a shoe.

Precisely. I'd only heard a REALLY bad copy of it previously so I couldn't get into it.

Thanks for the list. Good to know some love for "MFN Right" exists. Critics have been fawning over Good Drank, any thoughts on that one?

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Not feeling that one.

You met up with the gawd John Carpenter?

I asked him if he was aware that the Halloween theme had been sampled by countless rappers, he said he was but he'd not heard all the songs. Pressed him for a favourite and he said The Tower because the song was "like a mini-movie."

"Diamonds Talkin Back" is bonkers

D.R.A.M album is surprising.

Big Amount is my favourite 2 Chainz song this year but he's been putting out some great stuff generally.

I liked the Curren$y/Starlito track and it makes me wish Lito would do a tape with Cardo cos in the past I've found his production a little ehh
