Yea, you boy B-Easy has been out of action from nappyafro for roughly two months. And while I like the post title: What I Missed While I Was Away…, (Because “Away” makes it sound like I was in jail or an insane asylum) the less cooler title of this post should be What I Would Have Posted If I Was Here….
So after going through over 15,000 unread items in my Google Reader and still trying to get though 800+ new songs in my iTunes, let’s get into What I Would Have Posted If I Was Here….What I Missed While I Was Away…
Download:Elzhi – Elmatic [Mixtape]
I remember sending Elzhi a tweet at the beginning of this year asking about when/if he was gonna drop a full version of “The Genesis”. Of course that was before I even knew that he was planning on finally following though with he ode to the Nas classic. Of course the project doesn’t compare to it’s inspiration, but it’s not bad at all and definitely worth checking out.
Soulja Boy – “Zan & Lean (remix)” [Video]
This is where the Hip-Hop purist/snob in me starts shaking his head. Yes, I listed Soulja Boy here. Yes, I also love the accompanying video with him rapping this song with his boy in the hallway of his house. No, DO NOT download the other version of this song that the label threw together. Yes, I’m ashamed of all of this.
Mr. Ghetto – “Wal-Mart” [Video]
The fact that this video didn’t get a post on the main site boggles the mind. It’s so ignorant that it must be applauded. PLUS, me, P-Body, & King Jerm all used to work together at a Sam’s Club back in the day (Which is basically Wal-Mart) and they KNOW how it used to go down there. Wally Wally Wally World!
Download:Lil’ Wayne – “How to Love”
I guess being away has its privileges; I didn’t have to hear this bullshit. When I left Weezy was dropping shit like “6 Foot Seven Foot” & “If I Die Today” “John”. Let’s hope Tune doesn’t give too many songs like this on Tha Carter IV.
