Do you remember when 50 Cent made a diss song directed at everybody before he was famous, rapping about robbing every rapper ever??? Well, Messy Marv and J-Diggs have remade that song with a 100X more awesome beat, rapping about robbing and pimping all your favorite celebrities. The interesting twist is that Messy Marv probably genuinely believes he has had interactions with all these celebrities (via him being a delusional narcissist). Pretty funny/weird to hear them mention taking money out of Taylor Swift's purse, you know? At the beginning of the song J-Diggs says "on a bitch head.com" and I quickly typed that into my address bar only to find that that is not a real website. So disappointing. Thumbs up awesome stuff though, rappers talking shit about other people is always great. I look forward to Messy Marv continuing to rap with an unwarranted sense of self-importance. Here is a hilarious write up of the song that sounds like it was penned by a concerned Grandmother.
Bo Strangles ft. Lil Rue & Joe Blow "Cry Ice"
This beat is great. It has such a unique, upbeat sound to it that sounds like it was taken from the soundtrack for some fantasy videogame or some shit. Like don't you feel like you are looking at a waterfall as a dragon while listening to this? If you don't know who Bo Strangles is then you should do something about that. He has been around for a while and collaborated with The Jacka and company quite a bit. His (only?) album The First Prescription was good and contained quite a few super slappers such as this one. I just looked it up and I guess this song came out in March. Oh fucking well, it is still tight.
Joe Blow (or Joseph Blowseph as everyone here at the 100 Grand office calls him) just came out with a new album. It is just ok, but contains this monumental posse cut driven by an old-school funky bassline, with an awesome lineup. Hus is freestyling here and saying the exact same shit he says on every other song, but I guess you can't have your cake and eat it too (not sure if that is the correct use of the phrase). The album also contains this song, which does a great job of supporting my belief that the Bay Area has got the extremely-disrespectful-towards-women rap game on lock. A quote from the track: "slapped the bitch so hard I almost lost my arm." Hooray. Gonna go order a few dozen of these and pass them out to Bay rappers for being the best at disrespecting females.
Gap "Water Melon Head"
Akron, Ohio's Gap has a handful of new songs up on his youtube that are dope and worth checking out, but this one is particular really stuck out to me. What exactly is a "Watermelon Head"? It conjures up such cartoonish imagery and the best part about it is Gap never takes the time to explain what the fuck he is talking about. I think it might be some type of derogatory term towards women, but Idk. Really enjoying the increasingly esoteric and abstract direction rap music is moving in. It's too bad Gap doesn't make more music because he has such naturally catchy and memorable flow. Here is a an informative and entertaining post about Gap from last year.
My mediafire account just got permanently suspened, so that fucking sucks, but all the divshare links are still active, so you should be able to download most everything on here. Mediafire can suck my dick. I'm thinking about paying the 20 bucks or whatever for a premium divshare account so it's a one-click download without ads. That sounds like a good idea. BRB going to go have a meeting with 100 Grand on My Wrist's CFO.
What do you think of these songs?
Are you bummed out that Jay Cutler has dropped out of this year's Mr. Olympia competition?
Should I write something about Lil B's rock song or has everything about it already been said?
Were you aware of this rap blogger beef?
Are you as underwhelmed by the first single off Too Short and E-40's albums as I am?
