Lady Gaga – Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe (Kendrick Lamar Remix)

Here’s a nice remix by Lady Gaga of Kendrick Lamar’s song “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”. The plan initially was for Lady Gaga to be featured on Kendrick’s new record on this track but apparently she didn’t get her vocals sent over in time. I liked what she brought to this song. It kind of makes me want to hear Lady Gaga featured on future hip hop records. Who know’s maybe she’ll be featured on Kendrick’s next record.

Kendrick Lamar – Swimming Pools (Drank)

Kendrick Lamar is getting a lot of buzz lately and I’d say deservedly so. His songs aren’t full of empty boasting but are full of true stories about growing up in Compton surrounded by gang life. It helps that Kendrick Lamar is a great lyricist. His stories come to life before your eyes like you’re watching a movie. In his first single “Swimming Pools”, Kendrick zooms in on alcohol abuse. It might first appear that Kendrick is glorifying drinking in this song but that isn’t what he’s doing here. He doesn’t beat us over the head with a sermon but he does deliver us reality in its stark and messy form. Keep an eye on this kid, he’s one of the most promising new rappers around.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Can’t Hold Us (Live)

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ new record The Heist is one of the best hip hop records I’ve heard this year. It’s full of fun and thoughtful songs. “Can’t Hold Us” is one of my early favorites off the record.

Lupe Fiasco – Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)

Finally some new hip hop music I can get behind! Lupe Fiasco has some great flows in his new single “Around My Way”. He also has lyrics that are great food for thought. I like the sax in this song as well. After the over-produced mixed bag that was Lasers, Lupe appears to be back on his own terms with this new single.
