Download: Drumma Boy’s 4th of July Playlist

I'm very effusive in the artists who I love, but I really fucking love Drumma Boy. That time I met him at SXSW? That picture is still the background on my phone, and he's still one of my favorite producers. Every song on his 4th of July Playlist is produced by him, and features some of the usual suspects like Yo Gotti, 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Chris Breezy, Gucci Mane, and a shitload of others, considering it's songs that he has produced. Be forewarned, however, that it isn't only trapsters on this mix, which is indicative of Drumma Boy's prowess as a producer. Anywho, I love playlists that other people make, especially if they're as good as this one. Stream it at my boo's website or hover here to download Spotted at: DGB

“Shit Drake Says” is pretty funny, but not as funny as “Shit Julie Says” would be

I'm kind of indifferent to all these "Shit People Say" memes that were birthed from the "Shit Black Girls Say" (I think?). There's like a million of 'em now, including "Shit Seattle People Say When It Snows," and each new one is less funny. That isn't a hyperbole. It's probably an algorithm that my homeboy Steven could crack in Excel. However, I find this "Shit Drake Says" version to be quite humorous, mostly because that guy has the Drizzy wave down pat and because he's using song excerpts instead of saying stuff. My favorite part is the scene with the girl starting at 1:35 when he has that blanket pulled up to his chin (while wearing his beanie and sunglasses) that alternates between him dancing around in the grass like a goober. Yeah, I said it, goober. I bet Drizzy has said it before, too. And now there's "Shit Music Bloggers Say" which left me unamused. I didn't laugh out loud. Maybe I'm just jealous that Elliot Wilson has never retweeted me...nah, definitely not. I actually don't base my self-worth on who does or doesn't follow or RT me on twitter. As I was thinking about it more, though, it seems like an accurate portrayal of music bloggers. Maybe we're all just boring. #RealTalk. I think a spin-off of that "Shit Music Bloggers Say" could be "Shit Julie Says." Frankly, it's more fun to mock myself than to think I'm a boring music blogger. I'd be wearing all black, in my dungeon apartment, with J's on. Here is what I would say in the video: "I love all the colors in this music video. I'm such a sucker for pretty colors." "I really, really love trap music! Oh my God, the DJ is playing trap music right ...

Tha Hottest 15 Albums of 2011, according to Tha Blog is Hot

By "albums," I really mean "projects," which includes mixtapes, EP's, or whatever. I can't tell the difference between some albums and mixtapes, so I just wanted to make a list of my favorite 15 projects that I loved from 2011. 15. J. Pinder dropped Code Red 2.0 last January, and it was great. Pinder is more soulful than most rappers, and I appreciate that. There's just something about Code Red 2.0. For some reason, it struck a chord with me, probably because I could relate to him wanting to get out and go far. Well, I'm still in the same place, and Code Red 2.0 is still good, so whatevs. Read my original review of Code Red 2.0 here.   14. I interviewed Donnis right before he dropped Southern Lights this year, so that was pretty trill. Not to mention two of my top songs from 2011 are found on here, but Southern Lights was a dope tape from start to finish, and I'm kind of surprised that no one else is including it on their lists with production from Needlz, Syience, and the Cataracs, among others. The transition between "Ford Mustang" and "Ray Ban Vision" is uh-maze-ing.   13. Like Southern Lights, Zero Heroes was a dope tape from start to finish, and I really appreciated XV's mixtape theme throughout the project. No one has ever made nerd hop sound as good as XV, who I am pretty sure is one of the most endearing rappers out there.

Mannie Fresh raps his verse to my all-time favorite song

This glorious post has been sitting in my draft folder for a good minute. At some point within the last two weeks, Mannie Fresh was at Club Drom in New York City, both DJing and rapping his verse to one of my favorite songs, ever: "Back That Azz Up." I can't be the only one fiending for a Mannie Fresh and Lil Wayne reunion, right? Spotted at RapRadar

The-Dream is The-Man

I started my blog almost a couple years ago, and a lot has changed since then. I'm not on Blogger anymore, but more notably, my tastes have changed. I don't love Weezy as much as I used to. I'm a little indifferent towards Sorry 4 The Wait, and most of his post-prison catalog, but I'll reserve my judgments for after C4 comes out--assuming it does. I've always loved The-Dream. To make myself sound like an uber nerd, I'll compare the realization of my appreciation for him to Ron and Hermione in Harry Potter. They've always been there for each other, but only really recognize their love near the end of the series. If you don't know about Harry Potter, well, get busy. I love that series, the books more than the movies, just as much as I love The-Dream. Within the past few months, I realized that The-Dream is my new favorite. That took a lot of courage to write that, in case you're wondering (I still love you, Weezy!). I'm not quite sure what led me to this outcome. Normally, I like to trace my thoughts back, to see how I arrive at various conclusions. It wasn't because he decided to release a free album, and it wasn't because he dropped two songs at once. I really don't think any one thing caused me to reach this striking conclusion, as I sit here and ponder it, other than my general indifference toward most music that has come out out this, particularly my former muse's music. Oh yeah, his music is also kinda sort of incredibly dope, and I can always go back and listen to it without tiring of it.
