I'm currently working on a blog post comparing Chief Keef's "I Don't Like" to the Kanye-ized remix of it, but until then, I'll leave you with "Russian Roulette," another Lex Luger banger. "Russian Roulette" is a take off of Fat Trel's "Respect with the Tech"--hence Keef rapping about how he has respect for it...--and the original is pretty tough. Chief Keef is so, so gritty and street, maybe more so than Fat Trel, and "Russian Roulette" manages to sound even more rough to me, which I obviously appreciate very much. I also love this artwork, specifically the guns. Bang bang, bitches. Via The Fader

Another life-changing visual from Juicy J based off the trap Bible Blue Dream & Lean. Lots of highlights in "Won't Miss Ya," with usual suspects of drugs, money, trippy effects, and LV logos, but who knew he was such a dancer? Watching him wild out like that warmed my ice box of a heart. In my long absence from blogging here for no particular reason, he also dropped "Countin Faces." Did you really expect him to not drop one video per week? See what I wrote about it for The Smoking Section (!!!!!!).
Trey Songz sounds like an angel descended out of heaven when he sings over a trap beat. That's probably what Dante heard in the 9th sphere of heaven when Beatrice showed him the angels. Waka, on the other other, doesn't do much for me. Whenever I listen to him, all I hear is shouting. He kind of just sounds like background, static noise. Plus, these storylines that he's trying to incorporate into his videos as of late aren't doing much for me either. Pardon the obvious pun, but "I Don't Really Care."
Unless I'm mistaken, Juicy J's video for the "Oh Well (Remix)" with 2 Chainz is the 15th video from Blue Dream & Lean, and the second for this track. So, like a video remix of a video? Does that work? Anyway, I'm not complaining! Why not make multiple videos for the same song? Actually...I can think of a fair amount of reasons not to do that, but hey, it's working for him. Now where's the video for "Stoner's Night Part 2?" That's my favorite song (along with three others, about) and it's the only one that doesn't have a video yet! And in case you missed it, the first version of the "Oh Well (Remix)" video. After watching it, I'm pretty sure most of the footage in both is from the same damn time. Lolz.
Another song about smoking weed...(see preceding post to catch my sarcasm). Anyway, when I finally unpacked from SXSW, I found a Young Dolph CD in my suitcase, which I have no recollection of getting, but I was happy nonetheless, because I actually recognized his name. And with Juicy J on here? You know I fux with that. "Sky High" is from Young Dolph's A Time to Kill mixtape, which you can download here. DGB says that it's "already classic," so, download it asap.

A rapper rapping about weed, over a Lex Luger beat. That's obviously never happened before. I don't know much about JD Era, actually, nothing at all, but I do know that he shares my appreciation for Lex and that he is "Smoking Good," so it's all good despite the fact that this really isn't the most clever song about weed. Then again, I care for weed about as much as I care for country music, which is zero, since it can't be a negative number. "Good Smoking" sounds like it would rattle my Civic real good, so if I remember by the time I get home from work, I will download No Handouts, which you can download here.
Hot video – Dorrough Music ft. Ace Hood, Nipsey Hussle & Yo Gotti “That Lowend (Remix)” #TrapTuesdays
Dorrough, or Dorrough Music, whatever his name is, has always been one of my guiltier pleasures, and "That Lowend (Remix)" is no different. I love to listen to ignorant, semi misogynistic rap music while I work out, and this song is absolutely on my current playlist. I'm glad that Yo Gotti is on the remix, but I couldn't be more indifferent to Ace Hood or Nipsey Hussle if I tried. If Dorrough goes by Dorrough Music, does that mean I should go by Julie Blog? Nawwww.
I don't read Spin Magazine, but Waka Flocka Flame is on the cover. I always talk about wanting a grill, but I think I like the idea of having a grill more so than I would actually like having one. When I saw Waka's cover, this is what it reminded me of: Unfortunately, Waka's Fozzie Bear was no where to be found in his cover, unlike Britney and her Teletubby.
Yeah, you read that right. T.I. hopped on Gucci Mane's track "Plain Jane," along with Rocko, who appeared on the original. Apparently, T.I. and Gucci Mane used to beef, blah blah blah, so this is a pretty big deal. Personally, I think T.I. has been killing it lately. I tend to forget about Fuck Da City Up, but I thought that was solid. He's one of the few trap rappers who I can listen to a whole project without getting bored, and as such, I always welcome the inclusion of another rapper that dilutes a Gucci Mane song.
I literally don't know what I'm watching for half of "Errbody Wave." It's like, what were those things when I was young, like weird repeated designs that you stare at, and as you slowing move it away from your face, a hidden image pops out in 3D? That's what this is like, but it is Juicy J's face that pops up. And then there's Juicy J sitting in an electric chair. Errbody wave?
