I haven’t posted new raps in a minute, so sorry if I’m late to the party with some of these.

Clipse f/ Rock City – “Warning

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Newish Clipse produced by The Synth, a nearly impossible to google Atlanta duo who self identify as “emotronic” on their myspace page. Uh oh. Maybe they should enter this Scion Dubstep studio competition I have been hearing so much about? Either way the track is pretty crazy, all Tom Breihan synth gurgles and definitely better than anything that the Clipse has spit over all year. Or maybe it’s just shocking in light of how decidedly safe most hip hop production has been over the past six months. It seemed like 808s and Heartbreak, for all its faults, was primed to push a generation into making more adventurous beats the way “A Millie” almost did last year. Instead all it did was inspire a few people to make beats that sound exactly like 808s and Heartbreak the same way “A Millie” only birthed a bunch of inferior knock offs. Anyway, I could do without the Rasta Impasta on the hook but otherwise this jams.

Lil B – “I’m God

I got a chance to link up with the Based God himself this weekend. He showed me a cgi picture of an uprooted castle floating amongst clouds and said “that’s the kind of music I want to make.” Then he played this song. The beat, courtesy of someone named Clams Casino, is total weightless and aerial madness. B is sort of on cruise control, but that’s really the best way he rides. (Via Digital Dripped)

KD f/ Pill – “Soul

Whitefolkz – “Steal My Hair

from H.O.M.E. (Top Dogg Hill, 2009)

Whitefolkz is a DC rapper who has been doing his thing as part of the Top Dogg Hill collective for a while. “Steal My Hair” was up on his myspace about a year ago but finally makes an official appearance on his new album. Folkz usually rocks with more of a street sound, but here he’s on his boom bap tip, kicking a somewhat surreal tale about taking girls home only to have them conspire to cut off locks of his hair. This sort of playful but not soft storytelling doesn’t happen enough in hip hop anymore, it almost seems like an old Black Sheep song or something of that nature. H.O.M.E. is in stores now or available from Topdogghill.com. I still need to go grab myself a copy, I think.

Jap f/ Young Dro & Big Kuntry – “How We Get

I’m not as psyched on this post-D4L swagtard rap movement that is apparently taking over Atlanta as some people. But this track is notable for a short performance from Dro, who is too good of a rapper to go undercover in a scene where good rapping is unnecessary. Here he’s trying to force out a double time flow on a track that isn’t really equipped for it. And what the hell kind of rap name is Jap?

Jackie Chain – “Alabama Dodgers

I’m contractually obliged to post any rap song that samples “Triggerman” or any derivatives thereof. (via BLVDST)

Treal Lee & Prince Rick – “Mr. Hit Dat Hoe

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

This is a big hit in Dallas right now. I guess it was also a gossip blog punchline for a for a few months but I’m just now discovering it. Yes I am old and detached now. But for an ignorant ass dance hit “Hit Dat Hoe” is pretty full bodied, fusing that booming Big Moe style hook singing that we love with that ignorant snap vibe that gets us old timers all mad at the rap world. Basically it’s a decent midpoint between the music I like to hear from Dallas and the music fifteen year olds like to hear from Dallas. I’m willing to compromise.

Gucci Mane – “Weird” FUCKWMG
from The Gooch (Mixtape, 2009)

Gucci goes autotune. Jay-Z lost.

    embrace the swagtard

    “i’m god” is great though

  2. ANU Says:

    Dro’s flow on that jap song is out of this world.

  3. Aurich Says:

    Warning hook is fine by me, but I do listen to a ton of dancehall, it’s the crap last verse by whoeverthefuck Rock City that I could do without. I hear you on the beat being nicer than anything else the Clipse has dropped this year though.

  4. steve Says:

    did I just hear whitefolkz just name drop union jacks? wow.

  5. noz Says:

    haha yep.

  6. Hey Zeus Says:

    That newish Clipse track “All eyez on Me” is crazy..

  7. Renato Pagnani Says:

    Is “Warning” from Till the Casket Drops??

  8. Renato Pagnani Says:

    Also, disregard that second, superfluous question mark. I can’t type, apparently.

  9. pileofshirt69 Says:

    At the risk of snitching but falling victim to the trendset by showing us Quik’s TiVo digging a few posts back, I feel compelled to let you know that the beat behind Whitefolkz’s “Steal My Hair” comes from the Dust Brothers’ score for the 1998 pre-”South Park” Trey Parker film “Orgazmo.”

    KRS ripped over a variant of it on the surprisingly dope soundtrack. Another bizarre example of everyone out there at some point listening to something.

  10. d frank Says:

    that jackie chain song is that shit

  11. Samuel Says:

    Is there anyway you could get volume control on tracks you post? I have to listen to these on headphones and they are at full volume, making it aggrevate my ears. (The rest of CB is great though.)

  12. jordan s Says:

    jesus the “weird” beat is so next level. im assuming it’s zaytoven? those buried keyboard runs are amazing.

    also this def reminds me of the free association raps wayne was going on that old lil weezyana tape.

  13. David Says:

    ‘weird’ is incredible
    how is he still doing this

  14. Johnny Says:

    I love these posts. I am so far away from current raps, so thanks!

  15. mark p. Says:

    Surprised it took so long for KD to get mentioned on here. He’s put out at least two great tapes of quality dope ass country rap tunes, plus earlier one that I haven’t heard yet.. That song with Pill is just phenomenal. Both of those guys have great albums in them, I fucking know it.

  16. Jayson Greene Says:

    Ok, so “Weird” is my favorite of his seemingly endless “one-word adjective” songs by miles…REALLY into this beat, and what Gucci does with it.

  17. MAYNHOLUP Says:

    “all Tom Breihan synth gurgles”

    ah mayn!

    couldnt be feelin “Warning” less mayn is pushas verse from 1994?

  18. noz Says:

    “Is “Warning” from Till the Casket Drops??”

    No. It’s from some comp The Synth is doing, I think?

  19. Matthew Africa Says:

    > I’m contractually obliged to post any rap song that samples “Triggerman” or any derivatives thereof.

    I’m hoping there’s also a provision in the contract requiring you to post any rap song that samples Willie Hutch, like in the KD song.

  20. hotbox Says:

    There are a lot of really good or interesting rapps here. . thanks again.

    I noticed that this time out, Gucci is bumped down to last song status. I guess “weird” is not as cool of a word as “gorgeous”

  21. kidbristol Says:

    What did you say after you heard “I’m God”? I’m hoping it was something like, “Yes, that sounds exactly like a floating CGI castle.” I love that beat.

  22. Codie G Says:

    PT from Slowmotion Soundz produced the track for Jackie Chain. ST is on the Remix

  23. fuz Says:

    That new Lil B is dope

  24. nico Says:

    this lil b track is amazing!
