Song Review-Special by Gucci Mane featuring Anuel AA produced by Murda Beatz and Cubeatz

Song Review-Special by Gucci Mane featuring Anuel AA produced by  Murda Beatz and Cubeatz By Dan-O The reasons you should think of Gucci Mane as a genius lyricist are pretty straight forward: 1. Individuality-built his style on his own not a product of anyone or any other movement (in this way I think of himContinue reading “Song Review-Special by Gucci Mane featuring Anuel AA produced by Murda Beatz and Cubeatz”

Fight for The Future of Lil Uzi Vert

Fight for The Future of Lil Uzi Vert by Dan-O We complain a lot. All of us do. In Hip Hop, we get mad at youngsters for not doing what the older generations would do. Real rap problems exist: loss of interesting word usage, too much of a focus on ad-libs, drug addiction creating a generationContinue reading “Fight for The Future of Lil Uzi Vert”

Mixtape Review-Jugg King by Young Scooter

Mixtape Review-Jugg King by Young Scooter by Dan-O From afar I like Young Scooter. When I think about how much trap has changed and how much Scooter’s new mixtape Jugg King is right in the pocket of F.B.G. The Movie mixtape from 2013 my overactive mind wanders. Does Scooter see these new happier trappers andContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Jugg King by Young Scooter”

Mixtape Review-1017 Vs. The World by Gucci Mane & Lil Uzi Vert

Mixtape Review-1017 Vs. The World by Gucci Mane & Lil Uzi Vert by Dan-O Gucci Mane is the Hunter S Thompson of hip hop.

Street Lottery 3 by Young Scooter

Street Lottery 3 by Young Scooter by Dan-O I used to think of Young Scooter as mini-Gucci Mane, one of the many understudies the Holy Spirit of Trap (in holy trinity terms the father would be TI and the son is Jeezy) burns through on his long career. It turns out he’s a Frankenstein of Gucci andContinue reading “Street Lottery 3 by Young Scooter”

Mixtape Review-Black Dollar by Rick Ross

Mixtape Review-Black Dollar by Rick Ross by Dan-O Rick Ross has been artistically splitting in half recently.  The dirty Miami bass of Hood Billionaire v. the wordy luxury of God Forgives, I Don’t. The smooth J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League Yacht Club sound of Deeper Than Rap v. the deep growling muscle of Lex Luger’s production on TheContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Black Dollar by Rick Ross”

Song Review-1 Minute by Gucci Mane

Song Review-1 Minute by Gucci Mane by Dan-O Being a Gucci Mane fan is what I imagine life is like as a NY Giants fan. You think the team might barely make the playoffs, they win the Superbowl.

Song review-Flexington by Project Pat produced by Lil Awree

Song review-Flexington by Project Pat produced by Lil Awree by Dan-O For any lovers of the Three Six Mafia sound, all of Project Pats solo mixtapes and albums are mandatory. This gem comes off of his newest mixtape Cheez N Dope 3. He is definitely the model Gucci Mane follows: horrifyingly descriptive lyrics sometimes bombasticContinue reading “Song review-Flexington by Project Pat produced by Lil Awree”
