Generic list post: September 2021

Obligatory wrap-up post of those songs I've played most during the month when The Rock was spotted driving around listening to Giggs' Talking The Hardest. Talk about "all gassed up now Ima slang me a rock" eh?

Max B - Bang Bang Boogie (2006)
Young Stoka - Dope Man Swagg (2011)
Eatem - Go Get Yo F*ckin' Brotha (video) (2021)
AZ ft. Keffa - Keep It Real (2021)
Mic Terror - OJ Simpson (2021)
Megan Thee Stallion - Thot Shit (2021)
Cootie & BiC Fizzle - Supafly (2021)
Jenevieve - Exit Wounds (2021)
The Freeze - I'm Too Good For You (1982/1997)
Olivia Rodrigo - Brutal (2021)

Other notables: impatiently waiting for Ezale's Hotel Motel; Mozzy's homage to Messy Marv's Tycoonin' is very welcome around these parts; Duke Deuce's WTF is cool but I'm waiting on his Lock 'Em In The Trunk remake meself.

Feel a bit noncey enjoying an Olivia Rodrigo song, but Brutal cranks way harder than any of the new Rock shit currently on rotation on KerrangTV dunnit? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah, the forecast is.. partially cool

Money Mark - Hand In Your Head
(From Push The Button album; 1998)

Best quality video upload I've ever seen of this masterpiece. A MTV2 favourite from 1998 which should be an AM radio mainstay forever ever. A perfect pop song from a most unlikely place: the Beastie Boys' keyboard noodler guy.

Speakin' of whom, I've loved the Beasties' So What'Cha Want for damn near 30 years but only just noticed that Ad-Rock is wearing a The Fever t-shirt in the video. Strong period-detail synergy for a song which mentions Spoonie Gee and references Wild Style.

Beastie Boys - So What'Cha Want
(From Check Your Head album; 1992)

"Whoa is this, like, the weather channel?"

Sweet '16

Fall back, Cleanhobo - there's a new bellhop in (Funk)town. Feel like I'm back in 2016 again the way I'm rewindin' Ezale teaser videos. Maybe we'll finally get that Cold Game Chronicles song which was the one with the long-deleted video teaser of Ezale climbing up the abandoned apartment complex. He really thinks that he's Tom Cruise foreal foreal.

Late pass!

Young Stoka - Ack A Ass
(From YouTube; 2010)

Young Stoka - Dope Man Swagg
(From YouTube; 2011)

Gooblums on deck, here's some decade-old Baton Rouge shit that's new to me. 70th Street Carlos and Trel Itz A Hit swear Young Stoka was THE shit to them growing up and who am I to disagree? If Stoka only has two songs to his name then at least they both crack on some low-budget Baton Rouge rogues gallery type shit - donkey boy shit on the former and dope boy shit on the latter.

Born To Audiomack: P-Lo singles 2020/2021

Made meself a little playlist of P-Lo's current run of singles. Once a minor HBK Gang member more known for his production, P-Lo outlasted the crew's star rappers and has truly blossomed orchestrating self-produced Slap Anthemos on his lonesome. This ain't no J. Cole and his record sales, this is P-Lo and his songwriting skillz - slapinum with no features.

And dont forget MC Spoonie Gee...

AZ ft. Keffa - Keep It Real
(From Doe Or Die II album; 2021)

Expeditiously I be on my grizzly, yet I'm feelin' A-Ziggy gettin' semi-wavy by puttin' the Max in the B over Love Rap from the bottom straight to the tizzy. So, Doe Or Die II is a mess but I'll forgive AZ because it's like he made this song especially 4 me.

LMFAO @ the painfully solemn Idris Elba intro. At least mi don Idris' verse on Wiley's Boasty was sorta intentionally funny.

Sorry Sauce 4 The Wait

Eatem - Go Get Yo F*ckin' Brotha
(From YouTube; 2021)

... speaking of 2021 Rap songs which sound and look like hit singles from an entirely different era, Eatem's wonderful Baton Rouge Brawl Music™ anthem Go Get Yo F*ckin' Brotha now has a video. People say Rap music is #problematic but what other genre is lettin' down-syndrome midgets like Baby James be all up in the videos flexin'?

Bonus actual #problematic points for bringing back Long Duk Dong's gong to announce the AZN kid's arrival for the Karate battle.

"Wockesha and one litre got me floatin', bitch, I'm on planet Mars"

Cootie & BiC Fizzle - Supafly
(From YouTube; 2021)

Conclusive proof that classic Curtis Mayfield samples can make any and all rappers sound super duper stupid fly. This shit really does Hit Different™ because it sounds and looks like a regional hit from an entirely different era.

I'm waterproof when the rain hit

Max B - Bang Bang Boogie
(From Public Domain (Million Dollar Baby Radio) mixtape; 2006)

Every time I wipe out after deep surfin' The Wave™ I come outta that water with a song I've kinda slept on. So, move over Deez My Streets because Bang Bang Boogie is ya host's new favourite song on Max's first Public Domain mixtape. Shoot, bro - Max over The O'Jays is like a waterproof suit, yo. That grown and Gore-Tex shit for the summer, for the winter, fourth quarter, whatever, owww.
