Keep Livin’ - Jean Grae
My brother handed me my first Jean Grae CD when I was just four feet tall. I put it down for a while, but I’m glad it’s there to pick up again on days like today when I need that inspiration to keep livin’
For all my niggas smoke a pack a day
For all my niggas hold the bottle, drink the pain away
What type of life is this?
For all my niggas gettin’ the cash
And all my niggas who chill on the ave’
Let’s keep livin’
Drink to Get Drunk - Sia
Remember when I said I was thinking about changing the focus of this blog to bad bitches? Sia is the baddest bitch. Pop stars who don’t write their own songs? Sia writes them. The Australian born songstress has collaborated with Christina Aguilera, Hilltop Hoods, David Guetta, Flo Rida, Afrojack, Shakira and Rihanna to name a few. You’ve heard her work before, now listen to what happens when she puts her name to a track.
A Little Party Never Killed Nobody - Fergie, Q-Tip & GoonRock
A little teaser from the soundtrack of upcoming film The Great Gatsby, which is being scored (to my great excitement) by Jay-Z. I’m pleased to hear Q-Tip, a long time apartment favourite, included on this track.
The Great Gatsby will be in cinemas as of May 16.
Yung Rapunxel - Azealia Banks
Official video. Presented without comment.
I’m considering changing the focus of this blog to bad bitches.
NYC Bitche$ - Awkwafina
Remember when Awkwafina came out of nowhere with her parody of Micky Avolon’s ‘My Dick’? I wanted more, and she delivered. NYC Bitche$ is proof that yes, Awkwafina can rap and no, she wont stop cracking jokes. Check out ‘Peggy Bundy’ and ‘Yellow Ranger’ if you’re still hungry.
I just stole your iPad and now Imma sell it to buy more live chickens
Work - Iggy Azalea
Iggy Azalea has spent the last two years showing the world just how we do it here in Australia. Watch her holdin’ it down with real rhymes, real heart and real cake in this brand new video for Work, available on iTunes as of today.
Bow Down (I Been On) - Beyonce
I have a huge backlog of tracks to share with you guys, including the bass-heavy Bow Down. The whole arrangement is, for lack of a better word, pretty trendy. I’m never one to shy away from bass or from a good slow jam, but I’d love to hear more of that boss vocal from Queen B.
Enough talk, turn your speakers up.
i think im in love with angel haze
