We’re so used to seeing both Wisin and Yandel on stage and on camera, that whenever either of them release a solo track, we still somehow expect to see the other one appear at some point during the song! Yandel recently dropped a track titled, ‘Encantadora‘, and I must say it is blazing. Take a quick listen…
Get your drink poured up and roll up the green and get ready to go ‘swangin’. Paul Wall drops a dope new track that will make your subwoofers rumble. ‘Swangin in the Rain’ is one of the latest joints recently released from the Texas native. Known for his infamous ‘gangsta grills’, as well as, chopped and screwed inspired beats, Paul Wall is back on the scene once again.
Without a doubt, he is and always will be a hometown favorite, but it will be interesting to see if the H-town rapper will gain mainstream’s attention again.
Longevity has become a rarity these days, and it’s also the very thing that keeps Method Man on the rap radar. With a work ethic unlike no other, even after being in the game 20+ years, Mef still has that wow factor when it comes to dropping punchlines and the raw, gritty flow that NYC was well-respected for in the 90’s era.
The Purple Tape is one of the bangers on Method Man’s latest studio album, titled, ‘The Meth Lab’. The track also feature fellow Wu-Tang clansmen Raekwon and Inspectah Deck. Along with friend and long-time collaborator, Redman, he refuses to compromise his creativity and loyalty to the game just for the sake of a dollar. ‘Meth Lab’ is a strong effort and solidifies proof that if there is any doubt that he can’t spit dopeness, you got it twisted! The kid can still bring it.
For hardcore Redman fans, it’s a much needed relief to see Reggie doing what he does best. With a new album, titled Mudface, just a couple of weeks away from release, he sets the tone with a banger with every bit of wit, rawness and humor we’ve come to love Redman for. The lead single, ‘Dopeman’, is funk-ladened The past few years we’ve been hearing about Red being more involved with things behind the camera, directing and producing videos.
After more than 20+ years in the game, Redman is still a beast when it comes to lyrical content and now to add to that a respected screenwriter. Red’s current work proves the emcee hasn’t lost any of his creative fire, in fact this stuff is dope man!
Just when everyone counted him out, King Jay returns with a new track and plenty more heat to follow. With plans of dropping a new mixtape, a studio album, and a North American tour, the versatile artist wants his fans and followers to know that the wait is almost over. As a prelude, he brings us ‘Know Bout Me (part 2), which serves as just a prelude to what he has in store for the near future. Keep your eye on him because as he told us, he’s about to be outta here!
