Good Saturday Morning world. Lets have a ‘onetime’ for everybody who ever had to scream on the Jehovah Witnesses for knocking on your door too damn early. At my door this morning was this older cat, who resembled Mummar Gaddafi, except he had on a nasty tight grey Sammy Davis suit with pamphlets in his hands. So as I slammed the door, before ‘Good Morning…’ could penetrate his lips. I thought you know, the real Gaddafi likes music. Yes he is an insane madman. A madman though, who likes GOOD music. No he’s not Kanye’s latest protege. But he digs the likes of Mariah, Beyonce, Usher, and 50. The bread he paid for performances from these artists is mind-blowing.
First up is a dope newcomer Dee-1 with ‘”t’s My Turn.” This incredible MC hails from the N.O. but is nothing like his predecessors. The New Orleans hip hop scene is very diverse and as an artist Dee is somewhere between Weezy and Jay Electronica. Producer Rockaway serves up a southern fried beat thicker then Louisiana gumbo, that I’m sure had Dee hungry to spit when he heard it. Dee-1’s flow is effortless as he politely tells hip hops mainstream to pull over and give him the lane. What’s even more impressive is that the song is curse free and you don’t even realize it. Music aficionados have been on Dee for a minute but this kid is destined for success. He’s clean hip hop in a dirty and grimy music business.
Next Cam and Vado are back with a heat rock “Hey MuMa.” Shout to my man Skitzo on the beat. This record has been mashing the NYC club scene and radio for the last few weeks. For those who don’t know (or been under a rock) Vado, Cam’s latest understudy, burst onto the scene with last year’s Gothic club anthem Speakin In Tongues. This is no doubt a strong follow up that will be on the upcoming Gunz N Butta album. Cam’s clever wordplay is never in question on this. He passes the rock off to Vado, coming through the paint like Carmelo to Stoudemire for the flush. I expect to hear this banging out of plenty cars as the spring heats up.
Ahh man, Snoop makes the must listen list again with this new smash “Boom” which features T Pain. This is a no brainer in the club or party as ladies will move their gluteous at its maximum when this permeates through the speakers. The true gem in this Scott Storch produced track is it’s a total flip of the 80’s B-boy classic record Situation by Yaz. If you’ve ever been to a party in Vegas on the weekend you’ve definitely heard the Yaz record played as it’s still a party favorite. Snoop gives his usual sticky icky tale of Dame come to the Doggy. T Pain deserves the Nate Dogg ‘Sangin’ All over Your Hook’ Award because seriously, this guy is on everybody records right now. This time though, no auto tune (s
