0175 Kendrick Lamar – Hood Politics @ 0:00

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

“Don’t tell me that they got you on some weirdo rap shit ni$$a…. no socks and skinny jeans and sh!t… hahahhahaha…. call me on Shaniqua’s phone”

I was worried this was gonna happen too. Album of the year.

Hood Politics 0:00 – 0:35

From To Pimp a Butterfly, released through Aftermath/ Interscope records, 2015

0174 Drake – Preach featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR @ 2:15

“Doing it right is a whole different story…”

Listen at :06, when they cut the filter, it had to be that number right.

Best part of the album in my mind, and you know why he had the drop the album so fast? K dot in his rear view.. K dot is next on TBPOS.

Preach 2:06 – 2:28

From If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, released through Ovo records, 2015

0161 Nelly – Batter up @ 3:18

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

“you know how we do we do we do we do”
“money money money, what’s happening”
“that’s right”

Murphy’s verse is the best, and if you remember the video, he bats with one hand while looking at his cell phone.

Batter Up
3:18 -4:00

From Country Grammar, released through Universal Music, 2000

0160 Pusha T – Who I am featuring 2 Chainz and Big Sean @ 0:12

“wooooo”

This is such a strong, strong album that this :03 sec clip says it all.

Who I am
0:12 – 0:15

From My Name Is My Name, released through Good Music, 2013

0159 Drake – Too Much @ 0:47

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

“most people in my position get complacent, want to come places with star girls”

There are some great moments on the Drake album, the sample on the Jay Z track, the intro to Connect, the chorus on Furthest Thing, and then the way the drums drop here on Too Much. It feels like they’re late. Love the flow too, and hearing Sampha takes me back to that great SBTRKT album. The Jimmy Fallon performance is worth a look too, great stuff from our hometown representative.

Too Much 2:45 – 5:45

From Nothing Was the Same, released through Cash Money Records, 2013

0157 Kanye West – Black Skinhead @ 1:47

“Ready.. Ready for Action”

I’m putting it in the metal category : ) I love how much is going on this track – tribal chants, wild ass drums, the weird ‘black’ sample, Reverbed guitar, insane bass, and Kanye going next level like he always does. Don’t stop yeezy.

Black Skinhead 1:47 – 2:16

From Yeezus, released through Rocafella Records, 2013

0151 Big Boi feat. A$AP Rocky & Phantogram – Lines @ 2:04

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

“…the lines we’ve crossed, the lines we crossed, have always been why I’ve lost..”

This is such a strong album, I would have liked to have seen this given some respect at the Grammys. Big Boi is in a position to do whatever he wants, and here he goes crossover working with Wavves, Little Dragon, Jai Paul, and a group called Phantogram. Wait till you hear her voice below (@ 0:24). Combine that with a screwed intro, clipped sample, A$AP and Big Boi, and you’ve got a barn burner.

Lines 1:41 – 2:26

From Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, released through Def Jam Records, 2012
