[Rap] 2 Chainz – Birthday Song (Bugatti Boys RMX)” Ft. Diddy and Rick Ross

Ross & Diddy are back at it again and this time toss the keys to 2 Chainz‘s “Birthday Song.” The already famous single from Titty Boi’s “Based on a T.R.U. Story” is updated with two verses that even leave Kanye looking cheap. Weeks after its release the song makes a comeback with the heavyweights refreshing the Sonny Digital production. Happy twenty-first to my bro Phil, someone get this kid a big booty hoe tonight.

[Hip-Hop] Dom Kennedy ft. Tyga & Juicy J – My Type of Party RMX

Back with the heavy droned synth, Dom enlists Tyga and Juicy J to talk about their types of parties — drugs, girls, and of course haters. Filled with one-liners that you would expect from the three rappers this song trumps it’s predecessor. The highlight is when the beat shuts down for Juicy to get trippy until the tambourine (or drum snare) gets the song on it’s feet. All in all it’s a great song to bump on a fall drive.

[Hip-Hop] Slaughterhouse – Goodbye ft. Skylar Grey (Prod. Boi-1da)

With an all-star line up including Royce Da 5’9″, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, and Crooked I, Slaughterhouse is bringing its A-game once again. The Shady Records supergroup goes in over a hard-hitting piano with a melodic chorus by the beautiful Skylar Grey. Talking about their own experiences with death, each member (minus Royce) channels the angst that comes with losing someone. Each verse brings a new level of pain and this emotional ballad is sure to relive emotions evoking a certain empathy from the audience.

You can stream this somber single below and head to iTunes to cop if you are feeling it. With their album Welcome to: Our House releasing August 28th,  none of their songs should be slept on, and not just because they drew from their mentor Eminem.

[Album Review] Rick Ross – God Forgives, I Don’t

MIA might have a new king, watch out Pat Riley. Ricky Rozay has released a monster of an album and isn’t scared to tweet about it. Ross recruited Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Andre 3000, and his MMG crew to be part of his historic album. The Boss utilizes Florida producers Cool & Dre and the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League to create some polished, jazzy beats. With his lyrical evolution from Hustlin’ to GFID, it’s safe to say Ross has revolutionized the current rap scene to a more lyrically conscious audience, compared to artists like Waka Flocka. He diverges away from the typical trap music we associate with the drug aficionado and takes a turn to a more sophisticated mogul.

Ross’ taste has changed & he is altering the menu of rap/trap/hip-hop with him. With standouts like “Sixteen,” “Diced Pineapples,” and “Presidential,” Rick Ross has created THE standout hip-hop album of the summer. And with competition like Royalty,The Yellow Album, Life is Good, and Self Made Vol. 2, it’s a close race. Let’s see if G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer can break the finish line first, though. Stream a few of the notable tracks below and cop the album on iTunes.
