“Code Red” – Review Of Jay Rock’s Follow Me Home

It's damn near impossible not to compare Jay Rock to Game, given their similar Cali backgrounds, Blood gang affiliations and penchant for chronicling the street scene just as vivid as an A&E documentary.

Gritty on so many levels, the song/video combo of “Just Like Me” looks you dead in the eye and gives a necessary preaching to anybody glorifying the gangbanging and drug dealing worlds.

Black Hippy – “Constipation”

By | 7 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/02/new-music-ab-soul-feat-schoolboy-q-hell-yeah"> All the news of rap groups and labels these days may center around Rick Ross and his Maybach Music Imprint, but the Black Hippy movement may very well be the best all around faction as far as talent is concerned. Ab-Soul will be releasing LongTerm: Mentality on April 5 and one of the standout tracks - let's take a risk and call it early - features the rest of the squad (Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q and Kendrick Lamar) as they tag along for the ride on a track ironically called "Constipation." Thankfully we do no judge artists on the quality of their covers because I cannot say I'm a big fan of the visual. The song, however? Let's just say fans of the Jadakiss/Styles P back and forth flow should eat this up. Black Hippy - "Constipation" (Prod.

Schoolboy Q – Setbacks

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/01/new-music-schoolboy-q-feat-rapper-big-pooh-murs-fck-ya-hip-hop"> Good things supposedly come to those who wait. I've been copping kicks long enough to disagree with that statement but that's a topic for another day. On occasion good things also come to those who are cheap and lazy as well, this here is one of those times. Two weeks after releasing Setbacks on iTunes, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/schoolboy-q">Schoolboy Q</a> let it loose for those who live by a different moral code.

Jay Rock Feat. Ab-Soul – “No Joke” Video

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/download-jay-rock-black-friday-mixtape"> Jay Rock doesn't smile much and he's not much for games in the vocal booth neither. It's always business and personalized tales of hood life when it comes to the young, level-headed street soldier who dons the red uniform. Saving the comedy for Mike Epps, the Top Dawg of TDE takes you on a day in his life with a sample of the Black Friday Mixtape (which you probably slept-on to begin with). The Buick is at a slow creep but it's only for promotional purposes this time around. Spread love not war.
