DMV’s rap duo YSC is back at it with “Killa Swag.” This hardcore street track full of synths, deep basses, snares, and cash talk, is just a sample off their upcoming “Stunna Seasons” mixtape. StunnaB picks up the first verse ballin’ like his “name was Steve Nash.” Rapping about car’s with 22 inch rims, Stunna explains how he “loves to floss.” Brother Chase is no different as he talks of S classes, Gucci, Versace and more. The video which showcases a lot of cash, cars, and jewels among many other things, is a perfect example of how they stay true to their words. Check it out.
Big Sean dropped his highly anticipated mixtape “Detroit” earlier this month and to say the least, he didn’t disappoint. The G.O.O.D. Music heavyweight did something special with this tape. Not only is the project actually a theme mixtape based on his hometown, but he stays with the theme in an impressive way by having big rap names appear on 3 interludes explaining their experience with Detroit and why they love it. These interludes consist of Jeezy, Snoop, and Sean’s fellow G.O.O.D. Music label mate, Common. But the features don’t stop there. Big Sean also amassed a great number of other artists for features on his tracks such as, King Chip (Formerly “Chip The Ripper”), Juicy J, J Cole, Chris Brown, and many more. With such a wide range of featured artists with different styles, its easy to see how diverse this mixtape gets. From beginning to end this album styled mixtape will have you feeling like you’re actually from Detroit. In my opinion, projects like this tape are the reason G.O.O.D. Music is a force to be reckoned with in the battle for the top of the rap game. All that said, I certify this mixtape #GOLD……Boi!!
Here are a few videos to get you ready as we wait for our review of Big Sean’s “Detroit” mixtape to drop tomorrow. Big Sean has also been continuously working hard as one of the lead promoters for the new GOOD music album dropping soon.
