French Montana featuring Swae Lee
This 2017 banger by French is just and example of his musical ear and the effect of the Bad Boy union with Coke Boyz.
French Montana has a habit of bringing out bangers now and then, at the right time. This is evident with tunes such as Shot Caller, Shot Caller Remix, Pop That and I Ain’t Worried Bout Nothin.
This Unforgettable song, featuring Swae Lee from Rae Sremmurd, is a year long hit and has put French back on the map of mainstream music.
The visual was recorded in Uganda, Africa featuring a local dance group of children. The kids were placed in the music video after a video of them, dancing to the song, went viral. The dance moves in the video have also allowed the UnforgettableChallenge hashtags and videos to become popular on social media, shortly after the video came out.

All My Friends – Snake Hips featuring Tinashe and Chance The Rapper
This song was the perfect anthem for a Friday and Saturday night. With 38 millions views on Youtube, there is no doubt that this song has hit the cord with a partying audience.
This song came out last year and it was perfect for the any and every weekend vibe.
The song produced by Snake Hips features the vocal talents of singer Tinashe and the rap word play from Chance The Rapper. Tinashe does an amazing vocal performance on this song. Her voice worked perfectly with the instrumental and also matched the theme of the song.
Chance The Rapper does a surprisingly distinctive verse on the song. It wasn’t the usual rap verse expected from most rappers. The verse from Chance demonstrates his versatility on across different genres.
Snake Hips gets 5 out of 5 from us!

DJ Khaled – Im The One featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance The Rapper and Lil Wayne.
This hit record from DJ Khaled features the most talked about artists in 2017.
Justin Bieber demonstrates why he is much loved by his fans, with his vocal input on the chorus.
Quavo has been talked about much recently due to the claims that he will be leaving Migos, but there is no surprise with the amount of catchy verses he has been dropping on the features he has been on. Brrp brrp all angles…
Chance The Rapper does what he is known for, with his cunning and witty lyrics he adds a different perspective to the theme of the song and allows the audience to understand what a typical ‘good guy’ thinks. With artist like Quavo and Lil Wayne, a less ‘hood’/’street’ guy voice is needed.
Lil Wayne states it all in his verse. He is a legend. For the record he did know DJ Khaled when he first started as an actual DJ.
It’s refreshing to hear Chance and Lil Wayne on the record again. Even more so with Quavo and Justin Bieber. Even with the added auto tune.
This track is off the next album from DJ Khaled titled Grateful. As expected DJ Khaled’s son Ashad is also in the video briefly.
You have probably seen the video already, but do yourself the biggest favour and watch it again!
G Frsh gone?… for now?
Its been 7 months since G Frsh has released his visually entertaining single Yeah, with a snap chat themed video. The song is another of G Frsh’s ways of flexing his lyrical versatility.
But, since then there has not been any new music from the London based rapper. G Frsh has been seen working and partying with Disturbing London’s Tinie Tempah and Wiz Kid at their concerts and events. He has been seen with Yung Bane who is a new artist, at concerts. It does seems that G Frsh has taken on a managerial role in developing the new artist.
This raises questions about new music from G Frsh, his recent project Alfie did so well!
Fans are eager to hear more from G Frsh as his known for other themed songs and projects.
G Frsh has been in the scene for the last 7 years with an impressive collection of songs, visuals, and online freestyles. G Frsh is also known for mixtapes and projects such as Lego Man: Wheres My Brick, Lego Man 2 and Purgatory.
Although there hasn’t been any new music from him, we hope that he returns soon with some more word play!
