Notable Tracks: Bryson Tiller, Big Sean, Lil Yachty, & Chance The Rapper

The first Notable Tracks post of the year. This is where I gather 3 to 4 songs, sometimes with a theme, and other times, they are just new discoveries for me. This week is… whatever, let’s get into it.

Bryson Tiller feat. Big Sean – “Get Dis Money”

Last month, Bryson Tiller released Slum Tiller, Volume 3, and I’ll admit that I never set aside time to check out any release from this series. However, I did catch a song off the project, the Big Sean-featured “Get Dis Money,” which turns out to be basically a remake of Slum Village’s “Get Dis Money” produced by J Dilla. I don’t know if it’s a Detroit thing, but Sean sounds nice over a Dilla beat (even though this isn’t the first time). It’s worth a listen. Also, for a moment, I thought maybe the Slum Tiller projects were just Bryson Tiller rapping over Slum Village beats… it is not.

Lil Yachty – “A Cold Sunday”

I see what Lil Yachty is trying to do: things like the song with J. Cole, teasing a project with The Alchemist, and now this, “A Cold Sunday.” But my thoughts always go like, “This would probably be better if somebody else was on it.” But I still appreciate the effort.

Chance The Rapper – “I Will Be Your (Black Star Line Freestyle)”

Like everybody else, I also kinda stopped paying attention to Chance The Rapper after The Big Day. While his star isn’t as bright as it once was, he has been dropping random tracks here and there, and “I Will Be Your (Black Star Line Freestyle)” is one of those and was released a few weeks ago. And it’s good. Apparently, Star Line Gallery is the name of Chance’s next project, and this may be a sample of things on the album. I wouldn’t call it a comeback quite yet, but I’m listening.
