Trey Songz - Anticipation



The boy Trey has been hard at work this summer. Check out this mixtape, Anticipation... it goes in fa real. The text below is straight from the dude's blog.

An⋅tic⋅i⋅pa⋅tion [an-tis-uh-pey-shuhn] -noun
1. realization in advance, intuition; foretaste.
2. Musically - a tone introduced in advance of its harmony so that it sounds against the preceding chord.

Musically, I’m currently in a creative space like no other. I feel as though whenever a mic is put in front of me, I can do no wrong. At a time in the music industry where album sales are low, fans are fickle, inconsistent, or more into the various songs than they are the particular artist, I feel that I must give u a reason to love me. Embed in you a desire to love me and an appreciation for the music. I must show you that not only do I LOVE what I do but I also do it well.

The creation of ANTICIPATION began after I presented READY to my label the first time. I just started recording on my days off and the music felt great and decided that I’d rather share the music than let it sit and be idle. This is music without politics, without creative boundaries.

Troy (my mentor and founder & CEO of Songbook Ent.) and I have been making music since I was 15. There was a time when thoughts of monotonous melodies or redundant choruses wasn’t THE KEY to making a hit record. Music that just felt good. Although they’re present at times the boundaries are endless in this body of work, giving you a (1) realization in advance to READY.

What do I mean by READY? Well, lets do this one more time.

Read⋅y [red-ee] –adjective
1. completely prepared or in fit condition for immediate action or use

Are you READY? I like to say don’t get READY…STAY READY!!! But until then…Here is ANTICIPATION…

Also this Young Chris track from his upcoming mixtape, The Network is pretty sick. Reminds me of some old State Property stuff.

The Undergods (Keith Murray & Canibus) - 129



I was wondering if the rumors were true a few months back. I guess they are. Two of the hardest punchline rappers to ever punch a line. Production can be expected from The Green Eyed Bandit himself, as well as the Beatminerz and more.

The Michael Jackson Travesty

Alright... call me the Grinch, or the Angry Black Man - I don't care. Maybe I'm overreacting, but I just don't understand what all the hoopla about Michael Jackson dying is for. I mean, I understand that a great artist passed away. It's not like he was murdered... dude had health issues on top of countless and unnecessary surgeries to his mug. It's just crazy that everyone is claiming this to be the saddest day of their life, and people crying, and people forgot that this man TOUCHED KIDS! He was a great artist. Made some dope music, influenced people like Usher, Ne-Yo, Omarion, and Ginuwine. And could dance like no other... But the dude TOUCHED KIDS! He had a Monkey named Bubbles, and a kid named Blanket. He's the same guy that felt that it was okay for a 45 year old man to sleep in the bed with 13 year old boys.

Go to the 1:00 mark if you don't recall.


I liked Mike's music a whole lot, but I can't wait for everyone to cry and mourn the same way when R. Kelly dies (the other pervert). Too many people tend to overlook the wrong doings of celebrities; whether true accusations or not, way too easily. I don't care if Mike really touched those kids or not, but after multiple accusations and multiple out of court settlements... You tell me one person who would have left their child with Mike to play for a day. I didn't think so. Maybe we can get an honest statement from Emmanuel Lewis one day. Hell, Mike should have been on someone's Public Sex Offender list if you ask me. At some point we have to hold the people we put up on these pedestals accountable for something.

You can call me a Michael Jackson hater all you want... it's just funny how everyone had this self-centered notion that Michael Jackson was invincible. I mean just because you live in a hyperbolic chamber doesn't make you immortal. He was a great artist, but a troubled person/thing/it. I mean the dude TOUCHED KIDS for God's sake!!! I would have given him and Robert Kelly the chair two times for that. Fry they asses.

Twitter's server was down temporarily because of all the twitter messages of people crying and mourning. I said it once, and I'll say it again... I empathize for Mike's family, but I do not have sympathy for them. No man, sane or insane, should be sleeping with, touching, kissing, or playing with little boys. Ok, and if the molesting stuff isn't true... He was still a disturbed man. Mike's gone now just the same way as Isaac Hayes, Rick James, and Marvin Gaye. Now go and make yourself a mixtape of these 4 cats and holla at me tomorrow with some real news. That was my vent for the evening. Let's see the world shut down on Easter next year for Jesus' Resurrection Day.

Reflection Eternal - Back Again

Here's the video to Talib Kweli & Hi Tek's joint Back Again. Talib Kweli and Hi Tek are always a breath of fresh air, and this song floats so effortlessly through the speakers. It almost gives me that feeling I get when I listen to Summertime by DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince.

DODOA


Ok... I've heard enough. At first the remakes of the DOA track were amusing... Now I'm getting sick. Kind of reminds me of A Billi, when everybody did a remix. I was about to post this track from Royce Da 5'9 until I the beat kicked in. How about we say DODOA (Death of Death of Autotune)? That's a little more suiting now. Kill the remixes and come with your own sounds now... freestyle or written, battle or not... Give me more.

I guess I'll still put the link up of Royce Da 5'9s DOA (Redemption) track.
