Play Calling: 10 G.O.O.D. Friday Guest Appearances That Need To Happen

By | 51 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=149401"> G.O.O.D. Friday has been an epic occurrence in Hip-Hop lore. For the last few weeks, we've been exposed to classic records that have set the internet on fire every weekend. All but one of the tracks have come with a slew of guest appearances from artists that understand the importance of the music and have contributed some of the best verses of their careers. Though the G.O.O.D. Friday experience has been nothing short of great, there are still a few artists that haven't appeared yet that we'd love to see tackle one of Yeezy's tracks. There are still a few weeks left, so maybe Kanye will take our list into consideration when picking artists to collaborate with before G.O.O.D. Friday ends. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/video-malice-vlog-6"> 1. Malice -- So Yeezy proposes a <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/10/kanye-west-runaway-short-film">toast to douchebags and a-holes</a> but forgets to invite Pusha’s brother Malice, who’s writing a book about self-loathing.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=145622"> Friday, Saturday, who cares? The beauty of G.O.O.D. Fridays lies in the fact they're works cultivated in short time spans.

<a href="http://kanyewest.com/2010/10/take-one-for-the-team/"> More than anything, these <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/g-o-o-d-music-fridays">G.O.O.D.

Justin Bieber Feat. Kanye West & Raekwon – “Runaway Love (Remix)”

By | 43 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/08/kanye-west-announces-song-with-justin-bieber-and-raekwon"> I'm pretty sure that Justin Bieber's mom checked out Raekwon's Wikipedia page prior to the creation of this song and instinctively grounded him to prevent little Justin from playing in the studio with Rae and Kanye. As a result, the young Padawan defiantly decided to mail them his best Diana Ross impression, not realizing that Kanye had other plans for his vocals. I think Justin would have sent in something a bit more, dare I say, macho if he knew that Mr. West intended to use his hook to obliterate "Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nothing To F#ck With." However, Justin Bieber is not the sole reason this track fell short. Raekwon has now earned himself a second nomination for "Biggest Annihilation of a Classic" by successfully following up his disgraceful performance on the "Shook Ones Pt. II"-sampled "<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/download-rick-ross-feat-raekwon-audio-meth">Audio Meth</a>.
