Just like last week with Tyga’s “Taste”, I missed out on writing about the music video for City Girls‘ “Tighten Up” when it was initially released. And to be honest, I don’t actually like this song that much. When I hear the Flordia duo rapping about stressing while on their periods and possibly aborting a baby, I think this is where the evolution of the ratchet female rapper is going. That’s not a diss either.
Jay Rock – “The Bloodiest”
Most of the time we post almost anything that TDE releases (I said ALMOST), but something feels off about Jay Rock‘s latest track, “The Bloodiest”. I guess something has always felt off about Jay Rock though. He can rap, he has a good team, and should be a bigger artist than his is. You could say that it may be the expectation are too high since he’s on the same squad as Kendrick Lamar but you could also say he hasn’t reached the same level as other TDE artists like ScHoolboy Q or SZA. We’ll see when Jay Rock’s next album, Redemption, drops on June 15th.
Did the Kanye West Redemption Tour actually work? You have his wife Kim K freeing a Black woman from prison and next week his latest album Yewill be the #1 album in the country. I still don’t know how to feel about the situation or even the album but I know “Ghost Town” is by far the best song on the project. I even checked out 070 Shake‘s last EP because of her performance on the song. I didn’t like it, but that shows you just how much I mess with “Ghost Town”. We recently released a review of Kanye West’s Ye. Go check that out.
