Birdman and friends, OJ, Theripy, Freeway and Jake One, Curtis. Lets go!
Birdman f. Drake and Lil Wayne “4 My Town (Play Ball)” [mp3]
BDROOO! COCA LEAF PLANT! I thought Baby peaked with “What Happened To That Boy” but this new album is shinier, sillier, and way better than it has any right to be. MiamiJerseyVegas music. And just like “What Happened…” it has everything to do with the guest stars – Drake (l’chaim!) and Weezy over beats by Drumma Boy and Boi-1da, who absolutely nailed this one and makes Drake’s randomly frog-voiced chorus sound incredible.
Theripy “Switch It Up” [mp3]
Run this with Beastie Boys “Gratitude.” Can’t tell if this beat is broken on purpose or not. But I fucks with it!
Freeway & Jake One “Know What I Mean” [mp3]
Fif should have let Jacob Wizzle do all the beats on Before I Self Destruct. Instead of, y’know, none of them.
50 Cent “Death To My Enemies” [mp3]
Which is not to say BSD is a worthless LP – I just wish all of it felt like this (see also: the unfairly maligned G-Unit T.O.S. album) and “Crime Wave,” instead of the shit r&b joints and non-banging “club bangers.” That said – I suppose it could have been worse.
