[Hip-Hop/Rap:] Nav & Metro Boomin’ – Perfect Timing


[Hip-Hop/Rap:] NAV & Metro Boomin’ – Perfect Timing

Perfect Timing – NAV & Metro Boomin’

By now you’ve probably heard NAV’s music. Whether you realized it or not the rapper has made quite a name for himself in 2017. Featured on the hit Travis Scott single “Beibs in the Trap” NAV has seen his media coverage balloon with the help of friends like The Weeknd and Kylie Jenner. Canadian-born, the Punjabi MC has been making waves throughout the year and has also been featured on more and more tracks, while also releasing mixtapes and an album. Don’t miss out on his collaboration with Metro Boomin’ in “Perfect Timing.”

NAV’s arguably most popular song “Myself”

Key! – Yukon (feat. Omari Shakir) [Prod. Su$h Ceej & Moe Hundreds)

I can’t help myself I’m in love with your hoe,
Can’t help myself I’m in love with your hoe
I don’t want no heart I just wanna throat
I ran in the money, I’m lettin’ it go
In love with the money #relationshipgoals

Coming from Atlanta hip-hop producer and rapper Key! is “Yukon,” featuring Omari Shakir. With a catchy hook, and solid beat (produced by Ceej of ATL’s Two-9 collective) and Moe Hundreds, the collaboration with the Outta Pocket Boyz “Yukon” bangs, and just has an overall, different feel that is quite refreshing to hear in today’s rap game.

Omari Shakir brings some Future-like flair to the track singing undeniably addicting croons that have that lazy Sunday, street feel that makes this a perfectly great rap track; one that isn’t necessarily trying to be some tough, gangster number. Instead the song both goes hard and doesn’t take itself too too seriously, it’s simply fun. Key! and Su$h Ceej plan to release an album titled FRVR on February 9th, 2017. You can check out more on their Soundcloud pages.

[Throwback Track:] L.A. Leakers – Pull Up (feat. Kid Ink, Sage the Gemini & Iamsu!) & [Trap EDM/Rap] Gas Pedal (Salva Remix)


[Throwback Track:]

[Kid Ink:]
I know, I know you been waitin’ all night (it’s all right)
I know what you wanna get full of (I’m bout to pull up)
Pull up, I’m bout to pull up…

[Iamsu!:]
Goin’ in, more bars than a lifer
Send a text, bet she pull up like a diaper
Hyper, active, ballin’ no practice
Smokin’ on sherbert, we don’t smoke cactus

Our throwback tune for the day is the L.A. Leaker’s “Pull Up” featuring Kid InkSage the Gemini and Iamsu!. This 2015 rap track has a highly danceable and energetic beat and was used in many 2015 Vines in conjunction with dances like “The Whip.” Kid Ink’s chorus is pretty damn catchy and well I’d be damned if Iamsu! didn’t just deliver the best verse I’ve ever heard from him. Definitely miles over what he and Sage “showcased” in “Gas Pedal” do yourself a favor and check this song out! Also check out trap EDM producer Salva’s remix of Sage the Gemini and Iamsu!’s “Gas Pedal.”

[New Atlanta Hip-Hop/Rap:] Sahbabii – Pull Up Wit Ah Stick (feat. Loso)


Atlanta Rap

Pull Up Wit Ah Stick (feat. Loso Loaded) – Sahbabii

Pull up wit ah stick, let it hit
Pull up wit ah stick, let it hit

Bitch I’m with the mob, you can’t get in
we commit a sin for our niggas in the bin

After hearing this song playing at a local hookah bar in Buckhead, Atlanta after work one night I had to download it. Shoutout the DJ at Sahara Lounge that was playing this a few nights ago! “Pull Up Wit Ah Stick” is a trap banger full of Atlanta swag and “Datway!!” mentality. For those not in the ATL, that means it bangs and is totally a song you should blast in the whip with the windows down (especially on warm days here in the South).

Featuring Loso Loaded this rather underground track from Sahbabii is almost guaranteed to blow up once more people hear it. Oh yes, I would be remiss if I also failed to mention I have heard Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5 (my FM station of choice) playing this late at night. Here’s to a whole new movement of Atlanta rap, one that will hopefully take our city Dat way!! as we prepare to face the New England Patriots in the upcoming Super Bowl! (RISE UP FALCONS)

[Hip-Hop/Rap] [Atlanta Rap:] 2 Chainz – Good Drank (feat. Gucci Mane & Quavo)


[Atlanta Hip-Hop/Rap:]
Good Drank (feat. Gucci Mane & Quavo of the Migos) – 2 Chainz


2 Chainz smash-hit song, “Good Drank” gets a music video. Opting for a more “old-school” vintage look the song successfully combines elements of the past with the style and flair inherent in 2016-2017 rap. The song itself has been tearing up charts and radio waves across the country, especially in Atlanta.

Featuring none-other-than Gucci 1017 & Quavo of the Migos the track unfolds over a soothing, catchy piano chord and trap snares. Only these three Atlanta rappers could create something with this much uniqueness, and still keep it “street,” with elements of a slow jam, lyrics characteristic of a party rap song and flows smooth as ice. Can’t forget Quavo’s incredible chorus either.

Rack Jenkins – Dead Frenemies (provided courtesy of Cut x Sewn)

That’s why I never trust niggas man, motherfuck a friend!

Popping up on my Soundcloud feed today, a very nice chill rap track coming to us from Rack Jenkins. “Dead Frenemies” tells the story of a rapper’s journey to fame, coming up in the city and the cautionary tales of dealing with frenemies (friends who are actually f*ckbois in disguise).

From the laidback vocals, to the Asian sounding chords plucked in the background the song sets a very calm, relaxing tone. The beat itself, greatly reminds me of something Nujabes (the mastermind behind Samurai Champloo‘s soundtrack) or Dilla would produce.

In other words, some real hip-hop for ya listenin’ ears.

B.L.A.C.K. Baron – Mayretta (feat. Scotty ATL) // [BONUS] Scotty ATL – Marry Me

See I’m straight out the North,
Yeah, I come from the ‘May
A.K.A. Amsterdam, everybody got grams
All our trunks be on wham, pretty bitches goddamn!
Yeah they know who I am, I’m the one with the plan

Two Atlanta rappers come together to rep the North and East sides in “Mayretta” (one local pronunciation of Marietta, Georgia). With a steady, trap beat, catchy hooks and lyrics the song does not only Atlanta, but Marietta proud. B.L.A.C.K. Baron Scotty ATL have an interesting synergy in this track produced by Larkinbeats. Good to see some quality ATL rap that sounds nothing like Young Thug, Lil’ Yachty, or even 21 Savage. Like they say, you eat the same thing everyday you’ll get tired of it real quick.

[Hip-Hop/Rap] Gucci Mane – Both (feat. Drake) // [Hip-Hop/Rap] Migos – T-Shirt


Hello all, and Happy New Year. I hope everyone has had a wonderful 2017 thus far and wish you all a wonderful year ahead.

[Hip-Hop/Rap] Gucci Mane – Both (feat. Drake) from Gucci Mane’s Return of the East Atlanta Santa

I don’t usually do this, ‘less I’m drunk or I’m high
But I’m both right now, got me talkin’ bout my life
[…] I don’t usually do this, ‘less I’m drunk or I’m high
but I’m both right now and I need you in my life

With GuWop out of prison it seems he is simply everywhere these days. Gucci Mane has been dropping music like crazy and making appearances everywhere from VICE to NY’s Power 105.1 FM. Straight from his latest mixtape East Atlanta Santa Gucci Mane is bringing straight heat with his single “Both” featuring Drake.

Starting off the track with some signature Gucci grammar-ful lyrics “I got so many felonies/I might can’t never go to Canada” you can feel the makings of a top Gucci track with lasting appeal, even before you hear “If Young Metro don’t trust you, I’m gon’ shoot yo.”

The song largely speaks for itself so I will let it do just that, rather than describe it. Young Metro’s ice-cold beat is perfect for 2017 and Drake absolutely destroys the hook making the song irresistibly catchy. The only downside is at 3 minutes and 10 seconds, the song is far too short.


[Hip-Hop/Rap] Migos – T-Shirt

Last year proved to be quite an unstoppable year for the Migos. Contrary to the general consensus that 2016 wasn’t the best of years, the Migos only rose in popularity, dropped a plethora of new music as they prepare to drop a new album. Perhaps one of the most iconic rap songs of 2016 “Bad & Boujee” has been off the charts across America and the world.

“T-Shirt” continues the traditional Migos flow with an interesting video that pits the group in the middle of the arctic wilderness with several eye-catchingly beautiful women.
