Been on a G-Unit binge recently - they were stalwarts in the 00s. All of the gang kill it, and that Dr. Dre beat...damn.

11th Anniversary of TI's Trap Muzik

bobbymcfly posted August 19, 2014

On August 19th, 2003, TI released his second album Trap Muzik, which is considered a classic album by both millennials and hip-hop critics. Even though the record was TI's second album on the label, most fans consider Trap Muzik to be his first album because his actual first album had such crappy sales that nobody ever listened to it or knew about it.

This album has a special place in my heart because two of my favorite TI songs -- 24's and Rubber Band Man -- are on the album and they occur back-to-back as the 7th and 8th song, so those two tracks got mad repeats on my Walkman. Also, I remember playing Need For Speed Underground 1 on PS2 with my kid brother and we would change the soundtrack setting such that 24's was the only song that played, so I can recite ever line of that song verbatim.

Take 68 minutes and listen to the whole album on Youtube or spend 10 minutes listening to 24's and Rubber Band Man and reminsce about eating at a wafflehouse in ATL.

Posse cut from DJ Mustard with his trademark sound. Weezy bodies it.

15th Anniversary of 50 Cent's legendary "How To Rob"

bobbymcfly posted August 10, 2014

On August 10th, 1999, 50 Cent released his debut single, "How to Rob," on Columbia Records. If anyone walking the face of the earth wants to talk about records where rappers indiscriminately call out names, it would be an oversight of epic proportions to not start the list with 50's classic and legendary cut "How To Rob." He definitely created a huge buzz in the NY streets and on the interwebs with this song.
Whether you're sipping on some malt liquor or some Kern's mango juice, you'll love this joint.

Vic Mensa - "Wimme Nah"

A funny spelling from the Chicago youngster. Great flow and beat - he's someone to watch for sure.

Lil Wayne - "Grindin" feat. Drake

Weezy drops another single from his highly anticipated album, Tha Carter V, due out in the next couple months (hopefully). He clearly knows what he's doing by including Drizzy again on this one. Drake adds a killer verse to already dope track. Check it out above!
