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”

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. While I love Hunter I have never done drugs so I have very few people I can actually share that love with. People get swept up in the drugs and theContinue reading “Mixtape Review-1017 Vs. The World by Gucci Mane & Lil Uzi Vert”

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-Beast Mode by Future x Zaytoven

Mixtape Review-Beast Mode by Future x Zaytoven by Dan-O I’m incorrect but I always think of Future as an amazing raw talent. The way basketball writers must have looked at Wilt Chamberlain. He’s not raw at all. The music always feels that way because of how he attacks it. A new project roll out forContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Beast Mode by Future x Zaytoven”

2014 FME MIXTAPE MVP=SHY GLIZZY

2014 FME MIXTAPE MVP=SHY GLIZZY by Dan-O Usually someone dominates the mixtape scene; this goes all the way back to 50 Cent clearing the landscape and being the name on everyone’s lips. 2014 wasn’t the year for that. Most artists figured out that a tipping point exists where beyond a certain amount of content youContinue reading “2014 FME MIXTAPE MVP=SHY GLIZZY”

Mixtape Review-Real Nigga Shit by Kolley

Mixtape Review-Real Nigga Shit by Kolley While it’s easier to be a Southern rapper than it ever has been, it really depends on how Southern you are considered. UGK and Outkast are deeply embedded in the public mind as architects of the south. If you ask the same hip hop elitist who reps these groupsContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Real Nigga Shit by Kolley”

Mixtape Review-Young Jefe by Shy Glizzy

Mixtape Review-Young Jefe by Shy Glizzy by Dan-O A weird voice cuts two ways; one mans innovation in intonation is another’s fingernails down the chalkboard. I have to warn you about this because Glizzy has a whine flow all his own that might shut you down before you even get the chance to think aboutContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Young Jefe by Shy Glizzy”
