Ludacris – Growing Pains

Maaan I remember some good times with this track.  Full track credits include: Disturbing Tha Peace, Shawnna, Lil’ Fate and Scarface off Luda’s Word Of Mouf  (2001).  Sampling William Bell’s “Forgot to be Your Lover” which is also sampled by Dilated Peoples on “Worst Comes to Worst“.

Freddie Gibbs – Slangin’ Rocks

This song is hilarious and has been stuck in my head for days now.  Sampling   “Rock Steady” by The Whispers.

Steady rockin all night long..  Off Gibbs’ mixtape Str8 Killa No Filla (2010).

Nappy Roots – No Static

Much love for Nappy Roots and their feel good country rap tunes.  This one samples Nice & Smooth’s “Sometimes I Rhyme Slow” on the chorus.

No static, got an automatic, too much of anything makes you an addict.  Wise words.   Off The Humdinger (2008).

Clams Casino – I’m God (and Lil B – I’m God)

One of the dopest beats out there from one of the dopest beat makers out there.  And, for the hip hop heads in the house, here’s Lil B going over the same beat.  Clams actually produced the beat for Lil B and then realized it would get more traction without his weird-ass flow on it.

Some fire.

Black Hippy (Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q & Ab-Soul) – Scenario (ATCQ cover)

One of my favorite new hip hop groups covering one of my favorite old hip hop groups.  The song actually isn’t that cool, it’s the thought that counts though.

Nice & Smooth – Sometimes I Rhyme Slow

Some dope oldschool shit.  Nappy Roots samples this on “No Static” which is also a jam.
