Helloooooooo world. It’s been a while since we hit our fans some new music, so this week we’re hitting you with not one, but two editions of Music Monday! I know, you might be asking “What did I do to deserve this?” and the answer is, Nothing. You read The Swag Section, so that already makes you awesome by default. And for that awesomeness, we are going to award you with the best in new music from the last two weeks. Yeah, we are that nice. So let’s get to it: It’s the first installment of ts week’s legendary Music Monday.
A$AP Rocky – “Pussy Money Weed”
First up this week, we have Dat PMF with brand new music! It’s hard to imagine how he got the time to record this one after his arrest in NY a couple weeks ago, but you know everyone gets hype when Rocky releases a new track. This on is called “Pussy Mone Weed” and takes an homage to Lil’ Wayne’s song of the same name. But aside form the name, these two really have nothing in common, as A$AP puts that perfectly screwed Harlem swag on wax and let’s us hear it once again. This one is going to be on repeat for a while. Check out A$AP Rocky’s “Pussy Money Weed” above.
J.Cole – “The Cure”
Next we have new music from Roc Nation’s own, J.Cole. now we haven’t heard much from Cole since the release of his album Cole World: The Sideline Story last fall, but now he is back with a slick freestyle entitled “The Cure.” This one is spit over The Throne’s “Lift Off” (which is the most-produced song on the Watch The Throne album) and is basically Cole giving the rap game some much-needed verb therapy. It’s always nice to hear from this dude, and hopefully it means that he’s got some goodies awaiting us in the future….at least we can only hope. Either way, check out J.Cole’s new single “The Cure” above.
Aaliyah Ft. Drake – “Enough Said”
I think this one has taken everyone by surprise. Drake has been quoted saying that songstress Aaliyah provided one of his biggest musical influences in his career(even though she died 7 years before he was discovered), but I don’t think anyone thought he would take the obsession to this level. This is a song that was done by Drake’s personal producer and best friend Noah “40″ Shebib, and featuring the posthumous vocals of the soulful starlet over a progressive, So Far Gone-like beat. Drake’s verse does add a cherry to this record, and from someone who wasn’t too privy to this collabo in the first place, I must say that I’m kind of impressed. Check it out the joint for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
The Cataracs Feat. Kaskade & Waka Flocka Flame – “All You”
This one is just all sorts of WTF. A Dev (“Dancing in the Dark”) sample opens up this track by hip-hop rockers The Cataracs (“Like a G6″), who’ve teamed up with Kaskade and Waka Flocka Flame for their new smorgasbord single called “All You.” A definite EDM influence is heard on this one as Kaskade wrecks the ones and two’s with a sickningly cathy synth riff, layered on top of so much bass that even Rick Ross would have to grunt. Waka adds absolutely no merit to this song in my opinion, other than the comic relief that ‘s provided when he starts screaming nonsensically halfway through the chorus. But hey, if Lil’ Jon had a career, I guess he can have one too. Check out the single “All You” by The Cataracs above.
Chevy Woods – “Where I’m From”
Last, but definitely not least, we have Swag favorite Chevy Woods with a brand new track that he decided to release last night at the Under The Influence of Music Tour with Mac and Wiz Khalifa. In this one, Chevy details his upbringing and struggle to the top, letting us know why he and lames are not the same. Let’s just be glad because he made it up out of Hazelwood, because the stuff he talks about sounds rough. But like everyone else in Taylor Gang, Chevy has that ability to make almost any hook sound good, and this one is no exception. Check out the steel-drum driven “Where I’m From” above.
