T-Pain has been a staple on #NowBlaring since I blogged about “Booty Work“ on a separate wordpress site. I first heard Up Down on the radio last week and Shazam’ed it… stat. I’ve seen much chatter about this track on Twitter since… the guys and girls love it!
This beat literally mesmerizes me. “Dark Horse feat Juicy J” released in September 2013 but I’m a more recent fan of the track. Katy Perry’s fourth studio album, Prism, debuted December 17th. It’ll be making time to listen to that on Spotify.
B.o.B joins Ty Dolla on the DJ Mustard-produced cut featured on Ty’s Beach House 2 project. Like Cristin… I’m sold <<333. Tweet me the name of the sample track if you recognize it! The video is a great…sexy creepy compliment as Ty$ wonders whether two women he’s been intimate with are “trying to set him up”.
You might remember the single from early summer but it’s the lusty Official Video (NSFW) that found my attention. Neef Buck ft. Asia Sparks “Jack In The Box” is off his lastest mixtape Forever Do Me 6: Trash Bag King which is available for download now. I suggest watching the video soon before YouTube flags it o.O
Childish Gambino wasn’t too pleased when “Sweatpants” leaked onto the world wide web late November. He later warmed to the idea, and the irony, as the track is featured on his second studio album Because The Internet. I’m a HUGE Gambino fan and this is one of my favorite streams from the project thus far. Also… “WORLDSTAR” and “the worst guys”.
I’ve been a fan of Kid Ink since the very memorable Wheels Up dropped in 2011. Admittedly, I’ve haven’t kept up with the RCA Records signee since! Nope, I didn’t even listen to Almost Home EP featuring “Bad Ass” w/ Wale. This DJ Mustard produced single, however, is available on Kid Ink’s ‘My Own Lane’ album coming 1/7/14. It’s a very commercial track, but still – respect. I wonder what the album has in store.
Busta Rhymes rounds up Q-Tip, Lil Wayne & Kanye West on “Thank You”. This upbeat tune is featured on the Busta Rhymes & Q-Tips collaborative project “The Abstract & The Dragon” which dropped December 12th. The new mixtape is for the most part, a compilation of classics – but does include some new material, skits, and tributes.
The LA/NY production duo LOUDPVCK (prounounced Loudpack) came heavy with Twonk Team Vol 2. The mix kicks off with a ballad of “suck of dick” and holds no bars thereafter. It’s traptastic. Warning: Not safe for SEPTA unless you can keep a straight face and stiff hips.
Please forgive the delay in between posts. What do you think of week four’s picks? Let me know and hashtag #NowBlaring.
