Dope or Nope 8/23 – New Jay & Drake

23 08 2009

Jay-z feat. Drake – We Off That (Produced by Timbaland)
Jay-z
Aside from the singles off Blueprint 3, “We Off That” is the first track to leak from the album. Originally “We Off That” was supposed to be the first single, but Hov switched it up and dropped “D.O.A.” and “Run This Town” instead. When people got word that this was supposed to be the single off the album, fans had mixed feelings about featuring Drake on a lead single. It turns out that the anticipated guest spot was only on the hook. Timbaland lends production on this club banger giving Blueprint 3 a balanced sound with all the tracks that have leaked so far. Which track are you feeling the most, “D.O.A.”, “Run This Town”, or “We Off That”?
Big ups to my nigga Nyt for puttin me up on this track!

Takin’ Em Back – 8/21

21 08 2009

Eminem – My Name Is
Vodpod videos no longer available.

I've been listening to Eminem's discography all week which reminded of how insane Eminem's lyrical ability is. His debut album Slim Shady LP, was original, shocking, and featured classic punchlines. I’m posting the video that started it all, and branded Eminem as a lyrical, yet comical MC “My Name Is”. Like most of Eminem’s lead singles, he pokes fun at many celebrities in the limelight, but still manages to drop impressive lyrics. In other Slim Shady news, his follow up to Relapse will not be released in November as expected. There’s no word on when Relapse 2 will be released, but it is still in the works.

West Coast newcomer Nipsey Hussle makes an appearance on a new leaked track by Drake produced by 1500 or Nothin’. No word on what album this will appear on, but the two new artists keep creating a buzz with dope tracks like these. Drake of course appeared on two of the biggest summer anthems (including his own track); “Every Girl” and “Best I Ever Had”, and Nipsey his been on his mixtape grind. Drake’s debut is expected to be released this year titled Thank Me Later, while Nipsey’s South Central State of Mind will be in stores in December.
