On April 20th, Sese let loose a new banger for the smokers. “Throwing Smoke” is one for the chronic connoisseur’s out there. The production from Jazz Feezy and Scena knocks too! I had this one on blast all day, it was my theme song for the day on April 20th. Hit play and see why.
Okay, it’s four twenty. The mass amounts of “weed songs” that come out today is almost an overload. The whole SmashMouth Entertainment conglomerate decided to switch things up a bit. DillanPonders, SeT, F.E.L.N. and Jimmy B team up over a The Bass6 production for “800″. The spacey instrumental puts you in a trance as everyone goes in, though they aren’t talking about chronic. I swear everytime I play a joint from someone from the SmashMouth team, my house rattles. With this one, a couple pictures almost came off the wall. However you celebrate today, take in “800″ from DillanPonders, SeT, F.E.L.N., Jimmy B and The Bass6 and tell me you aren’t feeling this one. I’ll bet you can’t.
I’m in that turn up mood today, as we celebrate The Come Up Show’s 7th year running tonight. This tune, fits that mood. Set2 just dropped a brand new joint featuring Mr.YFRWN himself, the homie Sese. With Daniel Worthy on the production, “Wussup” is an all around enjoyable track and Set2 and Sese go off! Take in “Wussup” and crank your stereo to eleven, it’s needed.
As a surprise to his fans today, DillanPonders dropped a remix over “Threatz” and boy does he ever go in! The beat is hype to begin with, though when DillanPonders gets on it, you know he’s about to kick it up a notch. If you’re about to head out tonight, bump this on your way to the spot. The energy DillanPonders has during a live show is insane, and it shows in his music. Watch out for the homie this year! He just dropped a brand new video for “Selling Dreams” off NUMB the other day too! Consistency. Take in “Threatz” and see why DillanPonders is going to be a problem this year!
Quake Matthews is back with his Myth Monday campaign. This time, teaming up with JRDN; an incredibly talented singer from Halifax. Whenever Quake and JRDN team up, they always create something crazy! With Cory LeRue on the production as well, “Suitcase” is an instant hit. This is one that needs some spins all over the radio. Quake Matthews has been going hard dropping tracks every Monday and as each one is released, I get more and more excited for the next week. Quake has always been one of my favorite Canadian emcee’s so I find myself waking up anxious to hear what he’s about to drop. If you haven’t been following Myth Mondays, I’d check his page to get caught up! “Suitcase” is one for anyone who’s ever been contemplating leaving a relationship they’re in. The guitar by Josh Kelly is a nice addition as well. Check out “Suitcase” from Quake Matthews featuring JRDN and let me know your favorite track from Myth Monday’s so far.
For his birthday, Jimmy B let loose a “Public Service Announcement” with one thing in mind, “I’m tired of all the bullshit ass rappers rapping about bullshit”. Shouting out the whole SmashMouth Entertainment team, Jimmy B spazzes out for four minutes straight. If you haven’t taken in L.O.R.D.S. from Jimmy B, I highly suggest you do as well. Take in “Public Service Announcement” and see why Jimmy B is the truth!
Drizzy surprised us with a brand new track last night and as always, Drake goes in! “Draft Day” set over a smooth sampled instrumental, Drake gives some bars like “if I left the shit to chance, I would’ve picked a name like Chance the Rapper”. After taking home the Rap Recording of the Year at the Juno’s for Nothing Was The Same, “Draft Day” is almost a celebratory track. Let me know what you think, do you think Drizzy went in on “Draft Day”?
It’s Myth Monday and for week four, Quake Matthews gets deep with “2nd Guessing” featuring Emanny. If you’ve ever second guessed a major decision in life, this one is definitely something you can relate to, whether it be life choices, career moves, wanting to have a child, smoking weed or even the relationship you’re in. Quake touches on a ton of subjects like that on this smooth 2oolman production. Whenever they link up, the outcome is amazing. Adding Emanny to the mix makes it even more so. Who you might recognize from a ton of Joe Budden songs. Take in Quake’s fourth Myth Monday release, “2nd Guessing” and let me know if you can relate to this one and in which way.
On Saturday during The Come Up Show radio, we premiered a big tune from the homie Jimmy B featuring AJ Cooper and London’s own Richie Blackz. They linked up in support of the SmashMouth Mentality show in London this Saturday, put together by the homie Tyler from The Consignment Show. Which includes everyone from SmashMouth Entertainment like The Antiheroes, Jimmy B, DillanPonders, SeT, The Bass6, as well as Richie Blackz, Jay Downz, Haviah Mighty, EGAA and DJ DoubleDown will be on the 1′s and 2′s all night! If you’ve ever been to a club when he’s spinning, you know what to expect already.
“Doggy Style”, is a west-coast influenced track, bringing some warm vibes as it snows yet again today. This is one collaboration I didn’t expect to see, so it was a surprise when it came together and what came out of it, a summer banger. Jimmy B, AJ Cooper and Richie Blackz all go in on their verses. I’m hoping they jump on stage together and do this track on Saturday live. Come out to The APK this weekend if you want to see the same thing. It won’t be nothing less than epic. To help make up your mind, check out Jimmy B’s new single featuring AJ Cooper and Richie Blackz, “Doggy Style”. It ain’t no fun if the homie’s can’t get none!
Yesterday was Myth Monday! Quake Matthews’s heavy campaign every week that brought us bangers like “Puffy 4 The Knight” and “Red Wine” featuring Laura Roy. This week Quake hops on a 2oolman production (2oolman was a part of Boi-1da’s TeamTO at SXSW this year) and every time they link up, it’s epic. “Last Supper” can attest to that. The double time Quake’s flows on this is insane too! Take in this weeks Myth Monday release “Last Supper” which you can download as well – who would pass on something like that?
“Sorry Mr. Drizzy for so much art talk/ Silly me, rappin’ about shit that I really bought/ While these rappers rap about guns, they ain’t shot/ And a bunch of other silly shit that’ ain’t got” JAY Z
The last time Hov and Jay Electronica collaborated was on “Shiny Suit Theory” which was four years ago. Out of nowhere today we get the Roc Nation members spitting over Soulja Boy and Drake’s We Made It. JAY Z answers Drake back regarding his comments on his Rolling Stone magazine interview when Drake made fun of rappers talking about art pieces. Take this in and let me know what you think and if you are happy to hear back from Jay Electronica, I know I am.
