Murs & Tabi Bonney: Hip-Hop and Love

August 10, 2011

Song is about two weeks old with average lyrics from both artists.  Unoriginal concept but I dig the beat.  Kind of reminds me of Life Under the Scope and is making me look forward to the Murs and Ski Beatz collabo, especially since Ski did so well with Curren$y’s Pilot Talk 1 and 2.

6.5/10

Yo evypoo!!!! Remember this.  It was our 5 borough recovery song.

More Ski Beatz…

December 4, 2010

I can’t even think of a sports metaphor for Ski Beatz returning after 13 or 14 years of relative obscurity.  Here are some classics, all produced by the man.  I need to make a Hov agenda post rell soon.  No snark, I’m not even sure if these internet kids have heard any Jay that predates Hard Knock Life.

Curren$y – Pilot Talk 2

December 3, 2010

What?  You haven’t copped that new Curren$y yet?  You do realize all he talks about is the weed you’re smoking while cruising for the best new music blogs?  Hip-hop purists, you do realize you do realize that this is the same Ski Beatz on the boards from Hov’s Reasonable Doubt and Camp Lo’s Uptown Saturday Night, right?  Everyone, you do realize that Curren$y released two of 2010’s best albums within 4 months of each other?  His flow is untouchable, and he has all of these funny quirks the more you listen to him.  BTW, rumor is he recorded this one in one day.  Wack guest appearances aside, this is one of my favorite albums of the year in any genre.  Put up my favorite tracks from it, and a track from the first Pilot Talk if you haven’t recognized yet.  Jets, fool.
