Over the years, The Game has established himself as one of the best rappers from the West Coast. He has managed to drop one hit song after the other and “West Side” is another one. The track has a hard-hitting beat that matches Game’s aggressive flow. Check it out below.
“Living Single” is one of my favorite songs from Big Sean. The beat which was produced by Camobi is super chill and I like Big Sean’s flow on the song. I always felt that Big Sean had the potential to be a truly great rapper if only he stepped up on his lyrics. He has the same delivery as fellow slow rapper Mase but the lyrics can be a struggle to listen to.
“Good Morning” is a grand opener to Kanye West’s Graduation album. The track samples Elton John’s “Someone Saved My Life Tonight” and has that familiar soulful production that we have come to expect from Kanye. Check it out below.
“Miss Me” is one of my favorite tracks from Drake’s Thank Me Later album. Both Drake and Lil Wayne go in on the track. Drake’s singing and rapping blend well on the song. Check it out below.
“Calligraphy” is one of the best tracks from Chicago rapper Saba’s sophomore album Care For Me. It is a mellow track with wonderful piano notes. and Saba’s staccato flow. Check it out below.
It is quite astonishing how inspiring Kanye West is. He has dabbled in everything from fashion to film direction and you still marvel at what he will do next. Kanye has caused a lot of controversy throughout his career and even recently with his support of Donald Trump. All that aside, I have always been a fan of his and anxiously await whatever he does next.
“Heard Em Say” is one of my favorite tracks from Kanye’s phenomenal album Late Registration. Whenever that piano riff comes in I still get hyped by it. It reminds me of summertime in Chicago where I used to play basketball with my little brother and nonstop video game playing. Check out the track below.
“Stress Fracture” is one of Mick Jenkins’ best tracks on his Pieces of a Man album. The mellow beat and Mick’s flow is impeccable on the song. Check it out below.
