[New Rap/Hip-Hop] Wiz Khalifa – The Play & [Sample] Bat for Lashes // [New Album] Gucci Mane & EDM producer Diplo to create album


The Play (Music Video)

Wiz Khalifa dropped a new rap song, “The Play” today. Produced by Harry Fraud, this is (according to Hot New Hip Hop) the second song where Wiz has sampled an indie-pop/rock song (though the sample artist is really more alternative rock/electronic) Bat for Lashes “Moon and Moon”. Wiz has released 3 songs in the past 3-4 weeks on Youtube, one a freestyle over Marvin Gaye “Good For Us” and the other, a new single, “No Permission” as Wiz continues to dominate music charts this month. Below is also a notable remix of Bat for Lashes “Daniel” the artist Wiz samples for his latest track.

In other news, Atlanta rapper, ice-cream man and king of “Burr!” himself, Gucci Mane will be releasing an album produced by EDM giant, and everyone’s favorite krunk white-boi, Diplo. On Twitter, Diplo mentioned that although the album was originally billed as (and promoted by Gucci) as an EDM album, it no longer will be. It will have influences from electronic but should be something completely unique and different, Diplo says. Diplo and Mr. Guwop himself expect to have the album released this year.

Notable Guwop:
Constantly (feat. Chief Keef) – Gucci Mane

Notable Diplo:
Revolution (feat. Faustix & Imanos and Kai)

[Funny Trap Anthem] Little Einsteins Theme [886Beatz Trap Remix] – Matthias Gohl & Billy Straus


Blowing up all over Vine and YouTube right now are the #littleEinsteins videos, vines & memes. Set to a trap remake of the original theme song, hailing from the Disney kids’ show of the same name. Producer 886Beatz made the song a trap anthem over a year ago back in January 2014 while practicing sampling. The song recently began skyrocketing into popularity following several mash-ups and humorous viral videos set to the what might become a new trap anthem. EDIT: 886Beatz mentions on his Youtube video that Kenny Knox was the original producer of at least the beat (instrumental) itself, it is unknown at this time if 886Beatz added the Einsteins sample or changed the remix at all).

Remixing or sampling kids theme songs, although not new by any means (see below for a few more kids show remixes) have been getting a lot more attention as many users of the Internet inject children’s songs into Vine videos and other “funny meme” clips. Viral videos and memes have taken heart to iconic kids TV shows (many from the 90’s) such as Spongebob Squarepants, Arthur, Caillou, Doug, Rugrats, That’s So Raven, All That, The Fairly Odd Parents, Courage the Cowardly Dog, The Proud Family, Pepper Ann, Jimmy Neutron, Pokemon and more… SEE MORE KIDS SHOW REMIXES BELOW

If you haven’t seen them, here is one good example of the funny viral videos spawned. ^


A quick history lesson: SWAG SWAG, I’m Caillou

NSFW: Caillou Remix Theme/Swagg Version . Back in 2011 I had the good fortune of having my cousin introduce me to Yung God’s “based” remix of the Caillou theme. The song is often incorrectly credited to Lil B “THEBASEDGOD” but is actually by another “based” rapper, Yung God.

[TRAP Hip-Hop/Street Rap] Trap Queen (Prod. by Tony Fadd) – Fetty Wap


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 England Patriots Win Super Bowl XLIV 28-24


The ending was total SMH material, at least I got to watch a fight tho!

The Urban Daily

New England Patriots

The New England Patriots are NFL champions with a four-point win punctuated by on-field fighting after their surprising win over the Seattle Seahawks.

The win marks the fourth Super Bowl win for Patriots coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady. The pair has appeared in six Super Bowls.

The game was swung on New England’s 10-play, 64-yard fourth quarter drive capped by a touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Julian Edelman with 2:02 left on the game clock. That play gave the Patriots their final lead. A tipped pass caught by Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse that was eerily similar to David Tyree’s game-winning catch in Super Bowl XLII put Seattle in striking distance to make a comeback. But rookie cornerback Malcolm Butler sealed the win for the Patriots with an interception of Russell Wilson’s pass.

[New Remix] 2 On (Remix feat. Drake) – Tinashe


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.

New Gucci Mane – Texas Margarita ft. Young Dolph & Dr. Phil


New Gucci Mane - Texas Margarita ft. Young Dolph & Dr. Phil

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.
