It's amazing how ignorant Chris Brown sounds when he raps. Just...mind blowing. I realize that this song is ignorance at its finest, basically, but a rapping Chris Brown...yes. Kind of makes me want to queue up "Yoko." Okay, now that I just watched the "Yoko" video, I'll continue. This is the third version of "Yao Ming" that has been released. First, there was Weezy and 2 Chainz, then there was 2 Chainz and A$AP Rocky, and now there's Chris Brown and A$AP Rocky. I don't know when Sex, Drugs & Videogames is dropping, but I'll keep y'all updated because I am super excited for it.

Maybe I would get more money if I wore Levi jeans? Is that the implication of this song? Not to sound bougie or some shit, but I've never owned a pair of Levi jeans. J Brand, baby. J for Julie. But for real, did anyone else find it weird that 2 Chainz is rapping about Levis when he's known for his True Religions? It's like Roscoe Dash singing about chardonnay when all he ever sings about is Moscato. Download via HHU
Mike WiLL Made It introduced the trap to Tetris, one of the few videogames I don't mind, and used Gucci Mane and 2 Chainz as the spokestrappers. Let's be real. It wouldn't be right if Trap Tuesday went by without my posting something from at least one of the most notable purveyors of the trap movement. In this case, a sample of the Tetris theme is the backdrop for both of them. Download "Get It Back" Spotted at DGB
Frankly, I probably wouldn't have gone to the trouble of downloading TI's new mixtape Fuck Da City Up if I hadn't read the phrase "trunk rattlers" over at the Trilluminati.net. I judge a book by a cover, mixtape, too, though not as much as novels, and this artwork is goofy looking. Admit it. It's not that it's wack, although I suppose it is, but it's just goofy, like TI is a dad trying to be cool...except he's TI so I guess that makes him automatically cool. Anyway, I was at the gym the other night, and practically dying for some reason, so I figured that if I were to die, or fall off the box I was stepping on to, I might as well be listening to TI's new thang. I mean, why not? Better than BAYTL. Arguably, T.I. created the whole trap music phenomena with the sound on his Trap Muzik album (I think I read that somewhere?), and I really love how he took it back for the streets on Fuck Da City Up. He sounds hungry and aggressive again, and I really like it. Plus, he has great beats, the trappiest of the trap, and all the usual suspects found on any reputable trap album, including Jeezy, 2 Chainz (whose appeal I don't understand), Young Dro, Future, Trouble. More surprisingly, like he had some type of Harry Potter charm, T.I. conjured up a Pimp C verse, and production from the elusive Dr. Dre. Like, did his patronus bring that back to him? What would T.I.'s patronus even be? I can't not bring this up, considering I've already thrown in some Harry Potter allusions. I literally can't believe that T.I. has a song named "Harry Potter," and that's it's produced by Hit Boy, ...
The East Atlanta Santa (Gucci Mane) has been busy spreading some holiday cheer by remixing everything
Gucci Mane has been super busy lately dropping all his little verses over other people's songs that everyone else refers to as "remixes." Normally, I'm not the biggest fan of this move, but hey, I'm not gonna hate because that takes too much energy. For the most part, I like all the songs that he apparently likes, so either he has good taste or I don't. You'll probably be incredulous reading this, my dear reader, but Gucci actually sounds really good on this songs. More importantly, if you imagine him in the respective video while he's rapping, his remixes are approximately 100 times more enjoyable and you might laugh out loud. Drizzy's "The Motto." Drake hanging around with Mistah FAB, Berner, whoever else, E-40, and...Gucci Mane? Tell me that isn't funny. I haven't seen this video, or care enough to see if one exists, but the inclusion of Gucci would make 2 Chainz' "Riot" better. Trust. The video version I've seen of Tyga's "Rack City" includes explosions and a video ho, basically, in some fictional, mystical place named "Rack City." I'm envisioning that scene, with the explosion, where ...
In reference to my earlier post about 2 Chainz adopting the moniker 2 Chainz because it's more PG, what exactly is family friendly about his lyrics in "Spend It?" Or any of the visuals, really? I feel slightly vindicated. Nice try, 2 Chainz/Tity Boy, you can have an "E" for "Effort." It's nice to see T.I. again. I kind of thought I didn't care about him anymore, but I'm actually excited to listen to his new mixtape with the goofy cover called F*ck The City Up after seeing him all energetic in this video. Above all, I just really like saying "it's mine, I spend it." You also may recognize the "I am smoking on exotic" from the Le$ video "Smoking Exotic." Dopeness all around.
2 Chainz is that guy that we've heard on basically every track in the last year, and it doesn't look like he is showing any indication of slowing down his hustle. I'm not mad at that, though, because it's like he brings the trap to the most seemingly un-trap songs. Mostly in my head, I've tended to refer to him as Tity Boy/2 Chainz (I'm not sure if I've written that on Tha Blog, and I'm too lazy to fact check myself), but I guess 2 Chainz is now more like the artist formerly known as Tity Boy. If you're wondering, yes, I do find it ironic that he thinks "2 Chainz" is more family friendly name, considering nothing that he raps about is family friendly. Moreover, you know it took him hella to think of that slippery slope of an explanation as to what "2 Chainz" means. I mean, 2 Chainz as a second chance, or more appropriately, the second rebranding of himself? Yeah, that's clever. Maybe if I ate a big bowl of kush for breakfast, I could think of really weird shit to say, too.
Big Sean is on his forever quest to become Finally Famous. Think I'm kidding? His next mixtape is Finally Famous Over Everything, so maybe he found his fame that he clearly so desperately desires? I don't know. I'd say his journey is up there, in terms of epic greatness, with the hobbits in The Lord of the Rings or Homer's classic epic poem Odysseus. Unlike rappers and their "classic" albums, like Wale having the nerve to call Ambition a classic before it came out, Odysseus is literally a Greek classic, surviving over 28 centuries when it was thought to be written in the 8th Century BC (right? is my math correct?). Yeah. I don't think Ambition would last that long, or anything Big Sean has done, either. But at least he's keeping it Gee and talking shit again in his quest to be finally famous, and over a Drumma Boy beat, no less. I mean, we allllllll know how I feel about Drumma Boy. And the ever ambiguous 2 Chainz makes an appearance, because at this point in time, it wouldn't be a song without a 2 Chainz verse. Download via HHNM
2 Chainz is on a money making mission in his True Religion jeans, jetting all over. I can't say that I've really gotten into 2 Chainz--I think I downloaded T.R.U. REALigion, his latest mixtape, and I'm not sure if it has made it's way into my iTunes yet--but he is like the trap...all...star...? I tried to make some derivation of 'trap superstar' because that flows oh so nicely, but to imply that he's been on like every song this year, and it didn't work, so I'll just quote TSS and copy and paste their description of "2 Chainz gets the Rap Visa® award of the year for being everywhere you want to be" because I can't think of anything better. I also have to wonder, what is the correlation between 2 Chainz and True Religion brand jeans? I used to have some, but they didn't have the contrasting white stitching.
Bangladesh kind of seems like a weirdo (see: this interview), and contrary to popular belief, I don't think everyone is a weirdo. If they act shady, or creepily hit on me, or whatever, then I'm going to deduce that they're a weirdo. But, that's probably what makes him so great, and what translates into him being one of my favorite producers. He is resonislble for Lil Wayne's "A Milli" and "6 Foot 7 Foot," as well as Kelis' "Bossy," Beyonce's "Videophone" and "Diva," and Gucci Mane's "Lemonade," that Big Sean made more famous that Gucci Mane. According to him, the actual The Source Magazine is what inspired him to do music? Riiiiight. I like to ramble and say weird shit, too. But, a joint album with 2 Chainz? I wouldn't be mad at that, not one bit! I wonder if 2 Chainz could fit it in his schedule, though, since he's so busy rapping on every song and/or its remix. I am more excited about Bangladesh's album with crazy features, that his joint project with 2 Chainz, but regardless, a body of Bangladesh beats is good any way.
