Press Play...Play Nice.
1.) “Dueces (remix)” - Chris Brown (ft. Drake, T.I., Kanye West, Fabolous, Rick Ross and Andre 3000)
We’ve all heard the original by now, but this remix hits. Hard. Every verse is dope, and I can’t even pick a favorite, because all the featured artists go IN.
2.) "Christian Dior Denim Flow" - Kanye West (ft. Kid CuDi, Pusha T, John Legend, Lloyd Banks and Ryan Leslie)
Yeezy seems to be doing no wrong, lately. This is, yet another, dope record. If you can’t get enough, check out “Lost In the World”, ft. Bon Iver, too. Hotness.
3.) “10 Seconds” - Jazmine Sullivan
Ok. So, Ms. Sullivan digs down deep into her soul with this record. She tells it just like it needs to be told. I feel it. I respect it. I love it.
4.) “Haterade” - Gucci Mane (ft. Nicki Minaj and Pharell)
This track is featured on Gucci’s newly released album, The Appeal – Georgia’s Most Wanted. Pharell and Nicki add just the right touch to an, otherwise, potentially typical Gucci record. With a smooth beat and some biting lyrics, it’s the perfect balance of sweet and sour.
5.) “With You” –Lil Wayne (ft. Drake)
This record gets my vote for hottest track off Weezy’s most recent album, I Am Not A Human Being (released last week. Cop it, if you haven’t). Lyrics are nothing short of genius, per the usual from Mr. Carter. Listen close!
6.) “Let’s Get It In” - Lloyd (ft. 50 Cent)
There have been mixed reviews about this Lloyd/50 collabo, but the vibe is dope, and I can appreciate the fact that it’s not your standard “baby maker”. You be the judge, though.
7.) “Waiter/The 5 Senses” - Jeremih
Speaking of “baby makers”, this one’s a little more typical. Slightly reminiscent of Raheem Devaughn’s 2008 hit single, “Customer”, this track has the ability to take your mind all kinds of places. I’d say it’s a real good look for Jeremih though, who just released his second album, All About You, last week. Take a listen. You won’t be disappointed.
8.) “Hell Of A Night” - Dorrough
This man may not be a lyrical genius, but he DOES know how to get you noddin’ your head and movin’ your feet. Another classic Dorrough jam, right here.
9.) “Right Through Me” - Nicki Minaj
Ms. Harajuku Barbie’s debut album, Pink Friday (dropping 11.23.10), is one of the years most highly anticipated solo discs, so it’s no surprise that each of her records has to reach a certain level of dope. Nicki peeps into the minds of many females and delivers an all-too-familiar message on this one. Penetrating lyrics and a beat you gotta force out of your brain? I’d say it’s the perfect recipe for another Young Money hit.
