Eye Candy: If You Are Self-Quarantined With Kayla Jane… Congratulations! (Video)

Because woohoo! Looka here, looka HERE! All that re-THICK-ulousness!

See, I am the kinda guy who LOVES a THICK shake even when it’s cold out. Now that it is getting warmer, and that Cuffing Season is supposed to be all but a memory, maybe the COVID lock-down cabin fever is hitting some folks extra hard. Speaking of extra… nah, nope, not gonna go there… But I’m saying though. We may as well embrace it. I would not mind embracing buxom, bouncy, chipper Kayla Jane – have her ’round here spreading some of that curvaceous cheer. Bet I could help her burn off some of that excess energy, too!

Knxwledge – “1988” (Album)

Well, if someone is gonna drop something for the people after nearly five years, it may as well be good… and an extra-long 20-something strong LP. Like Knxledge did right here with this “1988” plate.


Ras Kass – “Soul On Ice 2: Instrumentals” (Album)

Okay! Now we got an artist thinking of other artists (and wannabe emcees) in this damned Coronaviral Era in which we find ourselves house-arrested in. From Ras’ house to yours, via the Interwebs, you are blessed with your OWN copy of the instrumentals for his latest album. So, now what?! What’chu gonna do?

As for me… I’m listening and bopping to the beats. Like, now, because how often will we get something this dope at this price (FREE.99)???

Cali legend Ras Kass has decided to release the instrumentals to his newest album “Soul On Ice 2” today. To make things better, he’s giving them away free all week so that people locked down on Covid-19 house arrest have something fresh to write to.


Doggystyleeee – “My Dayz Coming” (Video)

Every Doggy has his day. And take note: TODAY is Doggystyleeee’s day. But what about tomorrow, when dude is still saying “My Dayz Coming” though? Well, when tomorrow comes… guess what? That’s TODAY all over again!

I mean, y’all could beef with Doggystyleeee about it. I don’t think you want to. But feel free (HA)!

Daz Dillinger x Capone – “Startender” (Video)

We taking shots to the face like it’s Botox.

So you don’t think thots are trying to be as close to the table with the dudes high-posting with bottomless drink and endless cake?? Like a party with wide open doors and an open bar? Okay, well you stay right there… But ask your friend if she wants to go chill with Daz & Capone. Don’t get mad. She just wants one drink, and to say “hi,” and sit in a lap, and get high.

(On second thought: Maybe you can get a li’l mad. But at least you know where her head is now. Yeah, and where it will be in a few. May as well follow the “Startender” on over. HA!)

Don’t know which came first, the sample or the song idea, but I ain’t mad either way. “You Mad” though?

Joyner Lucas – “Will” (Video)

I wanna get married, but none of my shorties remind me of Jada.

Think Joyner Lucas is a “Will” Smith fan? Rhetorical question. Totally. Matter of fact, he wrote a tribute song about it… and there is a video for it… Here it go!

Performance: Freddie Gibbs – “Soul Right” (Video)

I can’t hold no grudges. My hands is too busy catching blessings.


So Freddie just dropped off all kinds of fire for Vevo when he fell through to do some Ctrl recording, huh? Check that. He performed that for The Nation! Us. We are The Nation. The Hip-Hop Nation! Click above and get your “Soul Right.”

Wanna know where the hotness is? Go to the fans. The Hip-Hop outlet Ambrosia For Heads did just that when they asked people to assess last year’s best Hip-Hop discs. The results rang out: Freddie Gibbs’ album with Madlib, ‘Bandana,’ ruled. The Midwest rapper’s collab with the SoCal producer is a great mix of perspectives. Gibbs’ street attitude and natural grit meshes well with Mad’s cinematic sounds (check “Massage Seats”) and deep beats. A followup to 2014’s acclaimed ‘Piñata’ disc, ‘Bandana’ is a powerhouse that swerves from lane to lane without fretting about its exact location at any given moment. “I’m not no boom-bap rapper or whatever the f**k that sh*t is,” Freddie recently told GQ. “I’m not a trap rapper. You can’t really put me in a box, man.” ‘Cept for that one in our Brooklyn studio. Gibbs said yes to Vevo’s Ctrl invite, and came to crush “Cataracts” and “Soul Right,” two of Bandana’s hottest tracks. Feel free to share ’em.

If you want me to leave the girl I’m with, step to me naked.
