Smash hit trap/rap anthem of the Winter is now blowing up across the US. With a very distinctive beat and a catchy hook and chorus, New Jersey rapper Fetty Wap has made a name for himself as he joins the rap scene. Part of the rap group 1738 RemyBoyz, he raps and traps in his video alongside CEO and fellow member Montana Buckz, explaining how he loves to trap, rap, get high and fly with his baby, or Trap Queen.
Although “Trap Queen”‘s first plays were a few months back on radio stations in Atlanta, like Streetz 94.5 FM and HOT 107.9 FM, the song is consistently getting more and more play. Released almost a year ago back in March 2014, the song has over 15 million plays on Fetty Wap’s Souncloud; the music video released in Aug. 2014 has 10 million views and counting (stats as of Late February 2015)
New rapper on the scene O.T. Genasis has a video for one of his breakout singles “Coco” which has recently been getting airtime on Atlanta hip-hop radio stations. Check out the video below where Genasis explains how he’s in love with the “coco” and guess what? He got it for the “low low.”
Atlanta artist Young Thug has been everywhere lately after his single “Danny Glover” which had an explosive remix featuring Nicki Minaj has been taking over airwaves in Atlanta. The latest track he is featured on now has a video, T.I.’s “About The Money.” Young Thug can be found making his distinctive…uh, we’ll call them signature “ad-libs” in between T.I.’s raps (Young Thug: AI! BOOM! // Turn up, a what they say AAH! // A n*gga boom what!!) and telling us how hard he flosses riding with gators, AND, his shoes are Giuseppe. got damn. For a sudden rapper to appear on the scene it seems Young Thug is doing pretty good for himself…time will tell if he will move past being a couple-hit wonder and become a staple of Southern music.
I heard this single on the radio the other day in Atlanta, where stations have begun spinning female songstress Tinashe’s latest single, “2 On” and now there is a remix featuring Drake who raps and changes up the flow of the song when he comes in.
Claiming he has “always been on/I’ve always been too on” implying he has long been the “shit.” The remix while interesting has a much different vibe to it than the original, alas I’m still happy to see it and to see Tinashe getting recognition and airplay here in Atlanta.
While DJs have had remixes (mostly electronic) of “2 On” for awhile now (I highlighted one by Wax Motif as well as the original song when it released a few months ago) this is the first “hip-hop” or radio remix of the original to come out.
For a completely different, but refreshing take on the song with a very EDM/IDM (Intelligent Dance Music) vibe check out the TOKiMONSTA remix of the song -> here.
Wax Motif’s remix of the song which released around the time the song came out puts a house/dance vibe to the song. You can listen to it -> here.
Gucci Mane dropped a new track yesterday (March 25th) titled “Texas Margarita.” Produced by London on Da Track the single is more “Gucci” type music, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with that. [credits: allhiphop.com for the story]
The chorus could have been a bit more inventive (guess what the lyrics to it are!), but regardless this track will definitely be “boomin'” and “bunkin'” for most folks especially when/if it gets airplay. Gucci’s last official mixtape was the “Trap Back 2” and his last studio album was “The State Vs. Radric Davis 2: The Caged Bird Sings.” In between those releases he has released several unofficial mixtapes which can be found at sites like Datpiff and LiveMixtapes.
Schoolboy Q is a fan of mine, he’s featured in one of the songs I blogged about, and play everyday “2 On” by Tinashe.
