murs & fashawn’s project, this generation, flew the hell under the radar (and mine especially), but their video for “64 impala” has me tuned in and regretting that whole thing. this is a pretty great track, to say the least. watch the red bull premiere above.
this is probably one of the best songs wiz has released since any given song on kush & oj. i know that’s not saying much considering rolling papers was pretty lame, but don’t get it twisted. it’s all about the same shit – it’s just got a nice hook, dope beat and a fashawn feature. oh, this is not going to be on wiz’s new mixtape, just something he let loose on twitter.
haven’t gotten into evidence outside of a couple songs and the most casual listening habits, but his new single with fashawn has me excited to hear his upcoming record, cats & dogs. the album’s dropping on 9.27 via rhymesayers, so stay tuned for more mp3s, etc. for now, enjoy this summery nostalgic clip for “same folks.”
a thousand times, yes. fashawn and j. cole, the two best freshman of the year’s past, link up for a collaboration that’s due to drop on fashawn’s upcoming tape. higher learning 2 is droppin soon enough, but for now, this j. cole-produced jam is all you get.
embracing the ‘freshman’ thing, fashawn took all of the large professor, premier, pete rock and LES goodness that backed nas’ debut album and put his own rhymes and wits to the test of a classic record that i’m sure most of you feel shouldn’t be touched. looking forward to sitting down with this one. tracklisting after the jump.
i love the fact that both of these emcees have put out incredible albums with the sole producer credit of ‘exile’ behind the project. that being said, could you imagine an entire album with these two monsters and exile? that wouldn’t be fair. visuals for an easy highlight off of 2009’s boy meets world.
