Legacy Track of the Week: Run The Jewels ft Zach De La Rocha - A Report to the Shareholders / Kill Your Masters
“Choose the lesser of the evil people, and the devil still gon' win” RTJ3 dropped unexpectedly on Christmas Eve and this politically conscious track, the outro on the project, is nothing short of a triumph… this record legitimately feels like the revolution thanks to powerful lyrics and unbelievable production, followed by the ill sounds of the frontman from Rage Against The Machine to further give it that classic feel.
Rapper Big Pooh ft Dho Hooker - Corner Store Blues
“Gone until November read my statement in The Source, unsigned, my family hype because they thinking it’s about time, funny thing about time is it never waits, there’s no rewind button for mistakes” Rapper Big Pooh, the North Carolina native famous for his time with the legendary Hip Hop group Little Brother, is officially back with straight 🔥🔥🔥 this reminds me of a Sleepers track…smh 🔥🔥🔥 ... real ones know…
Chance The Rapper & Jeremih - Stranger at the Table
“Oh baby, give me one more chance…” Jeremih remakes Jackson 5’s I Want You Back and to rather decent results… otherwise Chance the Rapper does what Chance the Rapper does and if you like Chance the Rapper you’ll be sure to like this song… Produced by Bongo the Drum GAHD by the way (one of the best artists of the year, elsewhere featured heavily on The Game’s 1992 album).
Chance The Rapper & Jeremih - Joy
“Christmasss… is a tiiiiiime for joyyyyy” Jeremih flexes on this and definitely provides that classic Christmas feel… meanwhile the Chance the Rapper verse is cool as well… but it doesn’t really give you that Christmas feel…
Chance The Rapper & Jeremih - I’m Your Santa
“If I'm your Santa, just call me Santa, Slide down your chimney babe, turn your fireplace off” This is all Jeremih… who at this point is one of the most elite and underrated artists in R&B… as far as Chance the Rapper… the bridge is cool and on this I’m glad that’s all he contributes…
French Montana & DJ Clue ft Kodak Black, Jeezy, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled - Lockjaw RMX
“It be hard to watch the cash when the bands keep droppin', got the big 40 on me so my pants keep fallin', It be hard to understand me 'cause my jaw keep lockin', I ain't even tryna talk 'cause my jaw keep lockin'” Produced by Ben Billions this one is heat 🔥🔥🔥
Too $hort ft Ty Dolla $ign, Jeremih, French Montana - Ain’t My Girlfriend
"I seen her only last night on some fly shit, had the nerve to introduce me to my bitch, his main bitch is my side bitch, she stayed cool, actin' like the shy chick, I played it cool too, you know I didn't say nothin', ‘cause not a lot of people know that me and her be fuckin'’ Short Dog in his storytellin bag and this one is classic… Ty $ puts in a fire hook on this as well… this was a pleasant surprise…
Run The Jewels ft Joi - Down
“I hope (I hope), I hope with the highest of hopes, that I never have to go back to the trap and my days of dealing with dope, so I, I, always spit fire and dope, so later on you can go quote, my lines to your people and folk” The intro is one of the best records off RTJ 3… this one feels good and salute to El-P for being an underground legend from the 90’s putting this level of quality out in 2016/17. Ill production up and down this project and this record is one of the strongest.
Run The Jewels - Call Ticketron
“Run the jewels live at the garden, lickin' off shots and we aim for the darkness” This one right here is a certified banger… crazy production over classic Hip Hop… get familiar with this ASAP 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Run The Jewels ft BOOTS - 2100
“Seen the devil give a sermon in the church, seen an angel dancing in the club, tryin' to feed a baby so I threw a thousand in the air, and blessed her with a hug I done been down so many times, walked on like a dirty rug, and now that I made it, can't fake it, gotta give me what I'm truly worthy of” Not only are those lyrics from Killer Mike on point but once again the production by El-P is immaculate and the hook provided by Roc Nation producer/artist BOOTS (who worked with Beyonce on her critically acclaimed self titled album in 2013) makes this one of the most complete records on the project.
