Weekly Hip-Hop/R&B Review (3/12-3/18)

Ballin’ like it’s March Madness. That’s 7th grade me showing the squad how it’s done in practice. Now, let’s get to this music:

DMX returns with “Moe Wings”

DMX took time out of busy schedule of being either in the hospital or in jail to drop a new song “Moe Wings.” X spits hard, like he’s known for, over an upbeat instrumental. Big Moeses and Joe Young provide an assist with a verse each to complete the song.

Tinashe keeps killing it

I don’t think it’s possible for Tinashe to have a bad verse, hook, or song. The best way to describe her voice is sexy. And I love her sexy music.

Vibe along to Domo Genesis’s new single “Dapper” featuring Anderson Paak

I’m loving everything Anderson Paak touches right now. His voice and style are so unique and refreshing to hear. Not to overlook the guys whose song this is though, Domo Genesis is a dope rapper who has a new album coming out that this song will be featured on. Look for more to come from both Domo and Paak in the future.

This song didn’t make the album? OMG

BJ The Chicago Kid drops the CDQ version of his song “OMG” with Jay Rock that was left off his debut album “In My Mind.” This ish is dope, enough said.

Trey Songz beautifully covers David Bowie’s “Life on Mars”

This song will appear on the next episode of HBO’s new series “Vinyl” and it is just beautiful. It should be common knowledge at this point that Trey Songz has a great voice but this is all the proof anyone needs. I legit got goosebumps listening to this the first time through.

Royce keeps killing tracks, new EP to come before “Layers”

7 minutes of Royce Da 5’9 spitting over a soulful instrumental? Yes, please. My real hip-hop heads know how incredible Royce’s wordplay is and it is on full display in this track “Dead President Heads.” I can’t wait for these two projects to drop.

Ignorant trap music…my guilty pleasure

I gotta admit, I love trap music in bunches. I much prefer music with meaning and lyrical skill/wordplay but sometimes you just gotta throw on some ignant shit and go crazy. Migos is one of my go to artists for that because they always have a dope flow and usually rap over hard beats. “Think Twice” is just that.

Some other things to note quick before signing off: David Banner dropped a mixtape, Lil Boosie (or Boosie Badazz) released an album, Anthony Hamilton put out a new song off his upcoming album, and PARTYNEXTDOOR released a song entitled “Admire Me.” Go check em out if you so desire and enjoy the music I posted for y’all. Peace!
