Gucci Mane (Ft Chief Keef) - Darker
I had a dream last night that I was driving (?) around trying to find a place for Waka Flocka to play in Austin and he was riding shotgun and being really nice the whole time, even though I was little intimidated. I don’t think Cheif Keef would have been nearly as nice which probably makes him a great fit for Gucci right now personality wise.
The talent on Gucci’s brick squad line up is so insane right now adding Keef almost seems like overkill. Scooter, Young Thug, Peewee, Young Dolph & Yung Ralph have all put out solid to fucking amazing records in the last few months, and Gucci’s seemingly back in full force, to the point that I’ve nearly forgotten that BAYTL even existed. It’s hard not to wonder where Keef is gonna fit in to all this, when he sat so comfortably at the top of his crew. Hopefully at least he gets a little better at that “squad” adlib. He has some big shoes to fill there.
I mean, it’s only Vado- but it’s weird to hear Ace Hood out-rapping anyone on their track

SSR-FLEX5 - Lord Finesse ft. KRS-One - No Gimmicks (Original Version)
KRS has done such a good job of making me want to never hear his voice again in every interview and commentary hes done in the last decade and a half, I sometimes forget how good he was. I never forget how good Finesse is, but it doesn’t mean the occasional reminder isn’t welcome.

As it is, I’m used to a Rihanna with a pretty huge chasm (no innuendo) between promise and delivery, but Loveeeeeee Song and this could be the two lead off singles on my favorite R&B record of a long time if it kept up this druggy and weird vibe.
I don’t know if it’s an industry thing, or the fault is more on the listener/critic/customer, but it really seems that the male R&B faction gets to keep pushing the envelope production and sound wise, while the ladies still find themselves so reeled in by such a conventional checklist of pop tropes that they are held back back from putting out a full record that’s consistently interesting and listenable as a single piece, rather then a stack of singles.
It was a record from a rapper who should’ve been told that he was on his way, not that he’d arrived.
