Finally we get to the reason why I started this series.
To me, this is one of, if not the greatest cover of all time and the main reason I started this whole series. It's the song I use to convince people that covers can be amazing, and it's also the tune I play to Hip Hop fans to show them Metal and Metalcore. May I please introduce, Sharks In Your Mouth's version of Eminem's 'Lose Yourself'.
"Cy's talent as both a quick-witted wordsmith and a sharp writer is unmistakable."
GOOD Music's writing secret weapon has finally unleashed Cyhi the Prynce's long awaited debut album, No Dope on Sundays, an hour and thirteen minute ballad that is both gospel and gritty. The project is full of rhyme scheme intricacies as Cyhi relives his past of despair, and drug dealing in Atlanta.
King 810’s sophomore feature, La Petite Mort or a Conversation with God continues their trend of hard hitting and gritty Rap Metal.
Remember King 810? The 4 piece out of Flint Michigan who’s first album Memoirs of a Murderer I covered in April? Well, they’re back with their second musical offering La Petite Mort or a Conversation with God that continues the brutal sound and message of life in Flint, but it also branches out with King trying new styles to much success.
Gunn released the statement suggesting they’d “never make the same move twice and we’re always creating” La Petite Mort proves that King 810 ain’t talking shit and are true to their words.
The key to YG's popularity is his authenticity. In the land of a million studio gangsta rappers you can count on the fact that YG is as real as they come.
Rapper YG has finally released his sophomore album and yours truly couldn't be more excited as his first album My Krazy Life was my favorite album of 2014. I love the way his albums are put together and sequenced, with the production and skits putting you into YG's head and allowing you to live a day in his life. I'm not sure I've ever heard an artist that when listening to their music you're able to visualize the songs so well and it’s like you’re watching a movie. Both of his albums bring me back to the Death Row Records heyday when their releases were just so much better than anything else that's out there.
After all's said and done, EFIL4ZAGGIN is one of the most influential albums ever produced.
Today N.W.A. celebrates the 25th Anniversary of its history-making second and final full length album EFIL4ZAGGIN. The album that brought the group to the next level because of their hardcore lyrics and image behind them. It represented a lifestyle that people in the hood felt proud about and people in the suburbs wanted to achieve and it had no qualms about what it was. The life of a Gangsta and takin no shit.
