Here's a HUGE track from GOOD Music and Drizzy! The track initially released as Big Sean featuring Drake but Kanye quickly jumped on it with his own dope verse. 

10th Anniversary of The Game's The Documentary

bobbymcfly posted January 18, 2015

The Game released his debut album, The Documentary, on Aftermath/Interscope Records exactly 10 years ago on January 18th, 2005.  The album is full of slappers including Hate It or Love It, How We Do, and Dreams, but my favorite is Put You on the Game.  On Gawd, I used to slap that tune like 10 times straight every Friday in AD's red Chevy Cavalier (hooptie had a sytem tho!) on the away to Carl's Jr for my Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger.

 

For old time's sake, let's play Put You on the Game and remember The Game's best album to date.

RIP A$AP YAMS

Today as a tragic day for the modern rap world.  We lost A$AP YAMS, one of the founders and cornerstones of the A$AP Movement.  The news was reported to us from the Instagram accounts of our associates, A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg.

 

To keep it 100, I never heard YAMS spit on the mic, but from my brief encounters with him, he had a wildly contagious personality and he was always stuntin with the entire A$AP MOB.  TNJ has been heavily influenced by the entire A$AP Movement and everything they stand for, so we send our most sincere condolences to the A$AP Mob and A$AP YAMS' people -- we'll see you on the other side gawd.  Rest In Paradise YAMS.

Nas - "You Owe Me" feat. Ginuwine [Throwback Thursdays]

One of Nas' more commercial jams, but still a beast. Ginuwine kills the chorus too.

It's our first post of the 2015, and it's a banger. The-Dream always impresses, and T.I. provides another slick verse. Check it out!

Video of the Year 2014 - Childish Gambino - "3005"

pavyedav posted December 31, 2014

This was released in early December of 2013, but it didn’t make waves until 2014. I mean, there’s nothing else to say apart from Gambino and a teddy bear on a ferris wheel. It is absolutely hysterical and trippy at the same time. ‘Nuff said.

New Artist of the Year 2014 - Migos

pavyedav posted December 31, 2014

This one was between Bobby Shmurda and Migos, but we give it to the trio because they have already made waves with plenty of collaborations and features (see Versace), and Bobby Shmurda’s legal situation is a bit up in the air. Having said that, we expect both to have big futures. Quavo is that dude from Migos, and they’re gonna put out a huge debut album next year! Here's "Fight Night" for your enjoyment!

Collabo of the Year 2014 - Lupe Fiasco - “Next to It” feat. Ty Dolla $ign

pavyedav posted December 31, 2014

This was a tough one between Lupe and “Underground Airplay” from Joey Badass, but this one takes the cake, as Lupe goes in on the industry’s obsession with material things, as he has on previous occasions. “And another fuckin comma with a zero next to it” really epitomizes how Lupe feels, and Ty Dolla $ign provides some seriously smooth vocals in the chorus. Also, that beat wasn’t for everyone, but it certainly jammed with us at TNJ. Good work from one of our favorites!

Album of the Year 2014 - PRhyme - "PRhyme"

Prhyme 630x558 original

There were some solid albums in 2014, from Migos, Vince Staples, Stalley, and YG, but the best album goes to the newly-minted duo who made their names in previous lives. Royce Da 5’9’’ is getting back to pro form, and with help from absolute legend DJ Premier as the producer and the man behind the scenes, these guys put together quite the album. It features Slaughterhouse, TDE’s Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul, Common, and Mac Miller, among others. One of the best on the album is “You Should Know” with Dwele - this one’s definitely worth the listen, as is the rest of the album! Cop it and support this soon-to-be-legendary duo.

Song of the Year 2014 - Bobby Shmurda - "Hot Nigga"

pavyedav posted December 31, 2014

There were some pretty solid songs for 2014. The party anthems ended up winning the game though, with “Hot Nigga” at taking the cake at #1 and “Fight Night” at #2, as both just get you so amped up! There’s no need to even talk about how huge “Hot Nigga” was, and how Bobby Shmurda took over the entire scene! The trio Migos made headlines with “Fight Night” too, with some classic lines as “RIP to Nate Dogg - I had to regulate” and an homage to Muhammad Ali with “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee!”. Finally, one of the better collabos was between Jeezy and K.Dot with “Holy Ghost.” This was an extremely underrated song, and Kendrick’s verse is pretty bananas.
