DRAKE Comes Out Swinging On Meek Mill – “Back To Back” (New Music) via @lisafordblog

Drake took it back to the way Hip Hop is suppose to be done…playing the dozens through music. No matter who and what comes at you, just make music. No matter what the circumstances and drama you have in your life, just make music. We don’t want to hear about your love affairs…just make music. On this blog, we don’t care about the gossip…just make music. And that’s what Drake did. He bodied Meek with “Back To Back”. Let’s see if Meek…the comeback King, will respond.

VIC MENSA x Kanye West x Skrillex (Music Video) via @lisafordblog #MusicMonday

I’m featuring one of my favorite new-school rappers for Music Monday… VIC MENSA.

Thissongissick.com writes, “This year Vic has already collaborated with Kaytranada multiple times and with Kanye on one of the hits of the summer with “U Mad” while recently being signed by Jay Z’s Roc Nation. We previously heard a live version of his collaboration with Skrillex, “No Chill,” but now we get to hear a radio rip of the studio version, and it exactly what we were hoping for. Skrillex brings his relentless drums and wonky horns as he proves he can produce hip hop as well as he does with his other production efforts. Vic goes in on this heater spitting choppy, lyrical verses while the beat drops in & out and he adds a catchy hook that has us impatiently awaiting more info about his debut studio album, Traffic.”

David Ayer’s SUICIDE SQUAD with Will Smith and Jared Leto is in theaters August 5, 2016, and all I can say is this flick will be amazing. Forbes magazine writes, “The film is about the titular squad, comprised of a number of DC Comics villains working to save the world. We’ve got Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as The Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and lots more (including some heroes, too, like Ben Affleck as Batman!)”

VINCE STAPLES – “Norf Norf” (Visual Audio) Explicit via @lisafordblog #MM

VINCE STAPLES is proving that 2015 is another 1993 …..hopefully you get what I mean… if not… 1993 is consider the best year in hip hop/Rap. NORF NORF, off of Vincent’s debut album, SUMMERTIME 06, goes go harder than concrete. The progression in his music is amazing to see..it’s the epitome of a west coast sound. Rolling in a cheap whip through the ville blasting this, got that wilderness feel. Almost psychedelic in the beat. The delivery of Vince is forgiving yet aggressive, like a stoned gangster who’s too high to give a f*ck about doing something, yet still apt to do it. This track has so much feel. Nice.
