For promotion 2 Chainz bought and did up a house in Atlanta. He also got it decorated pink inside and outside to replicate his album cover and album theme. The album name was also painted on top of the pink ‘trap’ house. The trap house has become a well-known location for hip hop and rap fans in South Atlanta. Almost like a museum or a chill out spot.

Previous albums from 2 Chainz are based on a T.R.U story (B.O.A.T. S), B.O.A.T.S 2: Me Time, ColleGrove 

2 Chainz has other mixtapes such as Daniel Son: Necklace Don, Trap-A-Velli and T.R.U REALigion.

2 Chainz has been on tracks with everyone on the GOOD music label, almost everyone’s favourite rappers apart from Jay Z and he has been featured on songs with the most wanted artists this year.

2 Chainz does not look like he is slowing down at all, as his trap music tour is in high demand and he has even hinted in previous interviews that he is already working on another album.

The visuals to the track 4:44 certainly tells a story with a beautiful ending featuring Jay Z and wife Beyoncé.  They are shown performing on stage together followed by a shot of their daughter Blue Ivy.

In the ultimate lemonade response, Jay Z admits to the cheating as he states “If my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do / If they ain’t look at me the same, I would prolly die with all the shame / You did what with who? What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate, you risked that for Blue?”

The song sheds some light on how there were cracks in their marriage whilst at the same time showcasing footages of some of the issues in the state regarding African Americans.

Im The Man

50 cent

This 50 cent throwback is not a very long throw back. The original ‘Im The Man’ track came out in 2015 with Sonny Digital on it with 50. The song was released as part of the Kenan mixtape. The mixtape was part of the character promotion for 50 cents TV show Power, which he produced.

The ‘Im the Man’ track was re-released with Chris Brown on this version, a video was also released. The song has become more popular due to the addition of Chris Brown vocals and his verse.

The track is arguably 50 cents best release in 2016/17. We definitely hope to hear more club bangers and hits from 50. He hasn’t stated that he is officially retiring from releasing music.

Check out the throw back visual and comment on what you think of it.

4:44

This is Jay Z’s 13th studio album!

4442

The much anticipated project from Hov is finally here. Throughout this year there have been hints that Jay Z was going to be releasing new music. Even after Watch The Throne there was rumours that Jay Z had asked the producers he works with to start making beats for a new project. Many people thought that was for Watch The Throne 2 or another joint project.

With the relational theme album by his wife Beyonce, there was much speculation that he would respond to the cheating allegations in some way. And he does on the album named track 4:44. 

The album 4:44 is only available for streaming on Tidal or through Sprint, who partnered up with Tidal recently. The album has 10 tracks on it:

3.  Smile
5.  4:44
7.  Bam
8.  Moonlight
9.  Marcy Me
10.  Legacy

 

Kill Jay Z is based on how he feels about his relationship with Kanye West and hi thoughts on it.

The Story of OJ has already become popular over social media as the visual, which is apparently only available on Tidal, has been posted on many peoples pages. In the song, Jay Z talks about being black and the financial progression which is possible for African Americans if they invest and be smarter with their money. This track really educates fans and listeners on the importance of financial freedom.

4:44 is exactly four minutes and forty four seconds long. On this track, Jay Z responds to Lemonade and provides an apology for his infidelity.

On Legacy, Jay Z provides a history lesson on the Carter familia and describes how each member of his family has supported him, vice versa.

Overall there has been rave reviews on Jay Z’s latest project and many appreciations for his educational and advisory voice.

This album was solely produced by No ID, so this indicates that there may not be another Kanye West and Jay Z collaboration for a while!

The album also features artists such as Beyonce, Frank Ocean and Damien Marley.

As this album can only be officially streamed via Tidal, we have do not have a link for you to watch the visuals or listen to the album. Instead we have a link for the lyrics from Rap Genius. We hope you enjoy listening to 4:44!

French Montana featuring Swae Lee

frenh 1

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.

With a surprise appearance from footballer Pogba, the video to Desiigner’s latest single is as energetic as the rapper himself.

The song was produced by Vinylz and directed by Grant Curatola. In the video we see the rapper in the form of a janitor working in the stadium and as mentioned above, it features Manchester United’s Paul Podga sporting the latest Manchester United jersey.

We reckon this could easily become an anthem!!

In another DJ Khaled hit, in a newly released video ft Rihanna and Bryson Tiller.

DJ Khaled refers to the video that was shot in a little Haitian part of Miami as legendary and we agree as Rihanna looks beautiful as ever and the video is given us all sorts of summer vibes with the colourful outfits and party atmosphere.

In case you’re wondering why the instrumental and beat ounds faimilar, well it is because the song samples Carlos Santana’s “Maria Maria.”
