What turned to be one of two decent songs on the Self Made Vol. 2 compilation gets the black and white visual treatment. Word to the wise, Stalley should never appear anywhere near an MMG project again. As a matter of fact, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson should ban him from stepping to a microphone for the foreseeable future. His shear presence in this video discredits anything MMG has worked for.
It’s MMG all day today, and this afternoon, they release the brand new visual for Self Made Vol. 2‘s opening track. Spots on Hot97, 106 & Park and just about everywhere else in New York have geared the power group up for the release of their second compilation album. They really all are livin’ the life. Album in stores now.
Stalley sucks. God. Only one song in on this album and he has no place here. Gunplay is hilarious though. Shouts to MMG for holding it down one again. It’s nice to see Kendrick get some love on this album but he doesn’t fit in with these guys at all.
Rick Ross’ 2012 summer takeover is right around the corner. First up, the release of Self Made Vol. 2 featuring the extended likes of the Maybach Music Group family.
This is the first time that JD has performed in his home city since he signed to Raekwon’s Ice H20 imprint. For someone who is so loved by his city, it doesn’t seem like the fans know much of his music. He did debut his new unreleased Lex Luger single that is sure to be ridiculous. Raekwon closed his set out with some classics.
The latest member of the MMG imprint Stalley performs for the fans in Toronto. Ironically, they knew more of his shit than fucking JD Era. Toronto, I’m not impressed with you at all. Go listen to some more homegrown talent.
Check out this behind the scenes look into the making of the “Cookup” song and music video. The “Cookup” features Black Cobain, Wale & Stalley and was recorded at Board of Administration Studios in Washington D.C. The video was also filmed by BOA in D.C. Shoutout to the homie Kevin Durant, and Stalley, the newest member of MMG.
We’ve got 70 for you this time; the best of the best hip hop tracks from the past two months. Pretty damn extensive list, but if you think I missed any let me or dharis know on twitter (@dflanz, @AllMyHeadMusic). Download links for most; other ones you can listen to on youtube or buy.
- I can’t even imagine what beats J. Cole is saving for himself if he’s giving away ones like this, and this. Along with Cole, Kendrick is right up there as one of the best young rappers in the game. This might be the best song he’s dropped to date.
- Already beginning to be played out on the radio, but there’s no denial that this song is a jam. Love that Drake is sticking with the producers that have always brought out the best in him (40), contrary to what Wiz Khalifa has turned to (Stargate tracks over Johnny Juliano on Rolling Papers???).
- Zero Heroes is my favorite mixtape of the year so far, hands down. Truly great songs top to bottom; this one’s my favorite along with “Smallville”.
- Roscoe completely steals this show as he outshines mediocre verses from both Fab & Wiz. Despite an abundance of corny lines, “Oh My” bumps harder than any other song that dropped in the past 2 months. Click the link to watch the extremely dope video.
- The best song on Goblin. Tyler spits for four minutes showing off some impressive rhyme schemes over a pounding, twisted beat he made himself.
Check out “Slapp” the lead single off Stalley’s Lincoln Way Nights (Intelligent Trunk Music) which drops 2-8-11 with Mishka. If you missed it, the Video is directed by Coodie & Chike of Creative Control. For those of you unaware, Stalley is dope and pretty conventional. He is an internet rapper for now, but a indie record deal is overdue for him.
