[Real Hip-Hop/Rap:] Erykah Badu – Trill Friends (Kanye West Real Friends Remix)


[Real Hip-Hop & Rap]
Erykah Badu – Trill Friends (Kanye West Real Friends Remix)

Homeboys, and some of them we wish we never knew at all…
Homegirls, and some of them we wish we never knew at all…

R&B goddess and hip-hop‘s ephemeral, ‘realest b*tch in the game’s’ take¬†on¬†Kanye West’s “Real Friends” puts a sweet, touching spin on the¬†calming¬†head-banger. With an instrumental beat characteristic of Kanye himself, as a producer; Badu raps and sings over a prominent 4-bar loop of the song to make a point about¬†friends. The repeating hook (and even elements of the original song) have a very¬†J Dilla or¬†No I.D. feel in being different and unique, but still clearly¬†hip-hop.

According to Badu, these days we use the word “friends” far too loosely and ambiguously which results in most of us¬†having homeboys and homegirls that¬†we wish we never knew at all. “Real Friends” are a problem that have plagued humans since existence. Who are our real friends? How do we feel when our so-called homeboys and homegirls turn out not to be our friends? In this Internet age, it’s common for us not to have any friends, except online or through social media, or to think we have friends then catch them slighting us on social media, or not having our back online.

Who do you consider your “friends”, your “real friends”, your “homeboys/girls”? A psychologist once told me that he thought we should do away with the word “friends” altogether. He claimed the increased rates of “falling out” with friends is due to our own high expectations we set for people who are our “friends”. When they don’t live up to these expectations we feel disappointed (if a friend doesn’t like and comment on ALL your posts, or is usually in tug with you everywhere but in one instance you can’t find them/count on them).

We have to remember that friends are simply that, friends. Of course some of us have certain friends we can count on more than others, but in general when we start placing them on pedestals or expect them to always have our back we being searching for and expecting someone who goes beyond a “friend”. Think about that as you go about your day.

Kanye West’s Original Song:

[New Fetty Wap:] [Hip-Hop] [ Meme Crazes] Fetty Wap – Jimmy Choo (Slim Thick With Yo Cute Ass)


[Hip-Hop/Rap] Fetty Wap – Jimmy Choo

Everything designer,¬†it’s designer things
all this f*ckin’ money bring the finer¬†things

Ay, slim thick wit yo cute ass
Ay, I might buy you a new bag

Fetty Wap has been a force to be reckoned with in the music circuit, and his latest single “Jimmy Choo” is no exception. With a simplistic synth/gameboy beat and heavy bassline the song makes for a perfect singing-rap blend, but a potent dance number as well.

So well the song has already inspired numerous Vine and Internet Meme videos, mainly with people dancing to the “slim thick with yo cute ass” line then proceeding to¬†hit em wit da old folks. Check it out in some of the vines below for some laughs and good times and even teachers hitting the new “Slim Thick” dance:

If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out the music video for¬†new artist on the scene Fetty Wap’s “679”. The track, popular on airwaves throughout the US and the world features more of Wap’s¬†characteristic singing over a quite laid-back and chill beat predominately found in “radio rap”. Neverthelss, the song is very catchy, with Wap receiving back-up from his squad, the¬†Remy Boyz.

Check out more from the New Jersey rapper below, including a remix of 679 featuring Meek Mill and Rick Ross:

[Future Wave / Breakbeat:] Fatboy Slim – Mad Flava (Autograf Remix) // [EDM Origins: Progressive House / Trance] Avril Lavigne – Alice ( Michael Conway Remix)


Future Wave/Breakbeat: Mad Flava (Autograf Remix) – Fatboy Slim

EDM producer/group¬†Autograf¬†was lucky enough to be¬†honored¬†by being called upon by¬†alternative rock/trip-hop¬†group Fatboy Slim to remix their single “Mad Flava“. Putting an absolutely amazing¬†future feel to the song, I almost didn’t know what to coin this genre of music. Maybe all these¬†Future¬†modifiers (in front of House, Trap, Dance, whatever) should just all be condensed into¬†FUTURE. That begs the question, what will we call it when it is the future, say in 20 years?

Sillyness aside,¬†Autograf has more than their fair share of stunning remixes.¬†Be sure to check out their songs on their Soundcloud, where you can download them for free! Next up for our¬†ORIGINS post (below) we highlight some Progressive House remixed by¬†Michael Conway as well as a legendary trance track from Trance God DJ, Ferry Corsten,¬†Down on Love” from his monumental album¬†L.E.F.

Progressive House: Alice (Michael Conway Remix) – Avril Lavigne

This is probably the second remix of Avril Lavigne song that I actually like, and this will take first for the best (in my opinion) as the general feel of this¬†awesome, beat-building progressive house remix of¬†Alice” from EDM producer Michael Conway¬†is much more widely applicable to any situation; compared to the¬†eurobeat-ish, happy hardcore sound¬†prominent in¬†the Revo-luution remix and Nightcore’s take on that same remix (below):

Hello Kitty (Nightcore Revo-luution Remix) – Avril Lavigne
 

Trance: Down on Love – Ferry Corsten

Finally, last but no way in flaming hell,¬†least. Is smash trance-track “Down on Love” from Dutch¬†trance, EDM DJ and artist Ferry Corsten. Well known¬†for working with and remixing tunes from the likes of¬†DJ Tiesto, Above & Beyond and more Corsten¬†has been a signature¬†name on the scene since the early to mid-2000s (much like Kaskade, Benny Benassi and several other DJs who “came up” during this time period).

Released back in¬†2006, I was a high school junior when Corsten’s second studio album dropped.¬†I copped it of course,¬†during a time where the¬†cashier at Best Buy looked at my funny, or as if I was crazy, this black teenager buying EPs from¬†BT (Emotional Technology) or the even more rare, obscure and EDM foundation builder, Norweigan group,¬†R√∂yksopp’s¬†The Understanding. Below you’ll find two standout singles from BT and¬†R√∂yksopp and two more deeper cuts.

What Else is There (Jacques Lu Cont Mix) РRöyksopp [2005]

It was me on that road,
but you couldn’t see me
too many lights out, nowhere near here,
I’ve got a golden ear,
I cut and I spear —
and what else is there?
