Generic list post: October 2020

Warren Zevon - Werewolves Of London
(From Excitable Boy album; 1978)

Obligatory wrap-up post of those songs I've played most during the month when Halloween pub parties in the U.K were cancelled due to the 10pm curfew. All I wanted was one night I could bust Tom Cruise moves to Werewolves Of London in my local and 2020 wouldn't give it to me.

YG - Swag (2020)
Open Mike Eagle ft. Video Dave - Headass (Idiot Shinji) (2020)
ShuggyBo - What I Like (2020)
Homeboy Sandman - Waiting On My Girl (2020)
Gzus Piece - Hot Tub TIme Machine (2020)
DJ Chose ft. BeatKing - Thick (2020)
GetEmTree - Only Way Is Up Step (2020)
D'Angelo ft. Redman - Me And Those Dreamin' Eyes Of Mine (Def Squad remix) (1996)
Pa Salieu ft. BackRoad Gee - My Family (2020)
Donae'O - Partey Hard (2020)

Other notables: YG & Lil' Wayne's Blood Walk was also surprisingly good; while it was fun to mock Jay He's A One Song Wonder, I was kinda disappointed that the album didn't have any keepers for me; 2020 stays full of surprises like a new single by 3MG; I get that Rio Da Yung OG's Practice is a lyrical exercise track, but that shit could still do with a hook; I foolishly thought the new Busta Rhymes songs with Q-Tip, ODB, and M.O.P might be my sorta thing - turns out I shoulda just headed straight for his banger with the Bell Biv Devoe chop-up instead.

Pa is starting to come into his own. I'm excited.

What’d you think of the Open Mike album?

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Haven't really given it a proper listen yet, but I'm a big fan of that song and Bucciarati.

Thoughts on the new Yachty and Rio songs?

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Don't like Yachty's voice. You can tell his real name is Miles just from his voice, and I'm not listening to rap music by a guy called Miles.

Smell Rell said...

Lol. I like Yachty because he sounds like he grew up eating krayons.

Open Mike Eagle came a long way: from posting his music on Philaflava to becoming a household name in backpacker hip-hop. Can't and won't front on his music though, I enjoy his shit the most out of his camp.

From arguing with Cleanhobo to becoming art-rap's critical darling.
