The USA X Factor contestant, whom we actually wanted to win, is back with his first full single a rap and b crossover song with Wale. The sample is instantly recognizable and infectious and hopefully this will make a dent in the charts
I guess Wale is like buses, we fall in love with 1 track and tons more appear all of a sudden. On this Miguel featuring track, which we believe spawned abstract poetry rap we will be seeing all over the place from now on, Wale extols the joys of getting to know a girl for the first time. I don’t think he would classify it as that but hey that is what we think.
Also please note that Bree from America’s next top model is the video girl and the intro is taken from the classic Tupac and Janet Jackson film Poetic Justice. Oh and Pat Benatar is hip hop now.
This summer really has been the summer of Sean, the Detroit MC released his lp Finally Famous earlier in the year and this summer has seen him cement that. From guest appearances on some of the biggest songs of the year Big is really one to watch. Here are our top 5 Big Sean tracks of the year.
In his recent NY Times interview Hip Hop’s current vogue producer Lex Luger mentions that he wishes to branch out from his signature sound to work with artists. We have heard this from other hit producers and it just hasn’t happened, usually most drive “their sound” (sometimes not their own fault) into the ground. Meanwhile this 20 year old producer has already branched out and created an entirely different sounding hit.
This Wale single (originally off the MMG Self Made compilation, not on Wale sophmore Lp Ambition) sees Luger sample Curtis Mayfield’s glossy soul and craft what i imagine what Frank Sinatra would rap over if he wanted to. Whether it’s his “trap” sound or this Luger sure does know when to keep things minimal when need be.
