Wake Tha Fuck Up

Da$H “Grade A

Why this song doesn’t have at least half a mil on YouTube I will never know. Stop playin with this man. Loose Skrew will be fire.

Allan Kingdom “Know About It”

It seems as though many people aren’t fans of the new direction Allan took with Lines. Those people are missing out on amazing records like “Know About It”.

Joey Fatts & Vince Staples “562”

Joey and Vince are family and it shows so strongly on their collaborations. Ya’ll are sleeping on the smooth sailing banger that is 562.

Rarri “2outh2id3”

Ohio’s Rarri deserves more exposure for records like 2outh2id3 and What They Seem. Stop sleeping on my mans.

Key! feat Omari Shakir “I Love You”

Key! is preparing to drop a classic mixtape with Live Slow Die Old. Don’t sleep on the loose heat has been dropping to build excitement.

Think Piece: “Playboi Carti” > “DAMN”.

by Emmanuel Louis-Charles

Just hear me out real quick…

Upon first glance at the title of this article you are most likely thinking “this kid is the ultimate hype beast and has no clue what he is talking about”. And I don’t blame you for that knee jerk reaction as it is warranted. It seems almost impossible to compare the lyrical and artistic titan that is Kendrick Lamar, to the simple swag raps of Playboi Carti. But before bowing mindlessly to King Kendrick I ask you to listen to both albums again and compare the feeling you get from each. This go around Kendrick was clearly trying to get his music back on to the radio and into the aux cords of the hood. Songs like “DNA”, “Love”, “Loyalty”, and “Humble” were all clearly created with accessibility and replay ability in mind as opposed to the boiled cabbage paired with few pieces of bacon that was the To Pimp A Butterfly. Now compare those tracks and all of the other tracks on that album to Carti’s debut. In my opinion no track on DAMN matches the infectious rhythm and energy of “Magnolia”. And beyond this standout Carti’s album is a stream of fun and infectious energy from “No.9” to “Other Shit”, to “New Choppa” to “wokeuplikethis*”. Carti comes with hit after hit.

I listened to both of these albums the same night starting with Kendrick and did not return to DAMN for the rest of the night as I could not tear myself away from Carti’s project. I still barely listen to it. Now I understand Kendrick and Carti are two completely different kinds of artists and comparing their music is kind of a troll in itself, but I noticed so much conversation around Kendrick and not enough about Carti since they dropped. After listening to Playboi Carti I thought his tape was going to send a larger shockwave through the net, but I guess everyone was so caught up with Kung Fu Kenny. Now is Kendrick a better raper than Carti? Of Course. A better artist, with a higher level understanding of song structure, flow, cadence, and bars? Obviously. And if judging by those terms DAMN is of course better than Carti’s tape. But, DAMN is like a burger, fries and milkshake, with a side of asparagus. A delicious meal with a side of nutrition. Does this compare to the bowl of endless Vlone ice cream that is Playboi Carti? I say no.

Carti Golds

Carti’s music is just more fun. It has a spontaneous, almost kinetic energy about it that makes me get up and dance. And to you Phat Pharm wearing hip hop heads who dare say Carti’s music is not quality or less hip hop because it’s mindless and all about fun, I ask you which was more important to hip hop first? Who was flyest? Or who was nicest?”. Last I checked people cared about wearing fly Kangol suits, breakdancing, the DJ, and graffiti in hip hop, before Rakim and the lyrical miracle. Let Carti szn be long and fruitful.

Ferrari Fatts has been on tour with Cutthroat label mate and roommate Dsavage, but today on Twitter he decides to get the engine for his own music running again, by letting fans know he is dropping three singles. I am most exited for whatever the song “562” brings as it features one of my favorite rapers and Joey’s cousin Vince Staples, as well is produced by Supah Mario who was behind one of my favorite tracks from More Life “Ice Melts”. Tomorrow should be fun.
