Meek Mill feat. Rick Ross – “Ice Cream Freestyle” (Video)

Meek Mill’s reworking of Raekwon of the Wu-Tang Clan’s 1995 classic banger ‘Ice Cream’ is outstanding to me. The North Philly kid murders this new freestyle with his extraordinary ability to ride, bounce, & flow over the track with relative ease lyrically. His agility in flowing over this flipped track produced by fellow Pennsylvania native Jahlil Beats is as dope a combo as Cake & Ice cream, Peanut Butter & Jelly, and…..Well you get the picture.  Just a perfect combination of ‘Beatz & Lyrics’.  I love playing this joint on my radio show.  If you still can’t picture it after hearing it then the people over at XXL directed this new video in Atlanta for you to see the vision a little clearer.  Check out the brand new video for the ‘ICE CREAM FREESTYLE’ above but with a minor change as this time Meek Mill brings along his slimmed down Maybach Music Bawse Ricky Rozay to add some bars a few ad-libs & grunts.

Wu-Tang Clan x David Bowie – “C.R.E.A.M. vs. F.A.M.E.” (Produced By Ryan Stinson)

FameCanadian producer Ryan Stinson who is the owner of the independent hip hop label Phonographique out there in the land of the great maple leaf, dropped this very dope mashup/blend featuring Wu-Tang Clan & David Bowie. This ‘C.R.E.A.M. vs. FAME’ joint is pretty ill from the the label owner who also happens to be a part of the production duo ‘The Dirty Sample’, who created the soundscapes to that dope ass Three Sixty Five joint’ for Roc Marciano that we posted weeks ago.  This ‘C.R.E.A.M. vs Fame’ joint is going to get much run from me on the radio show & at any other event I just so happen to be spinning at.

Raekwon – ‘Close To You’

Raekwon continues his ‘Throwback Thursday’ assault over classic R&B joints from back in the day. This time around the Wu-Tang lyricist decides to take it back to the 80s & get ‘Close To You’ on this Gwen Guthrie joint. It’s an interesting choice for ‘the Chef’ to flip his lyrical finesse over, but I think Rae should have utilized her 1986 ‘get off your ass’ controversial classic “Ain’t Nothing Going On But The Rent”. It’s all good…. just another appetizer before Raekwon’s upcoming ‘F.I.L.A.’ project on the way.
