Ever since trap rap became an applicable form of hip-hop, it's been somewhat hard to tell which MCs are actually trying to master their craft and which are simply just trying to legitimize themselves through the limelight.

Killer Mike Feat. Big Boi & T.I. – “Ready Set Go (Remix)” Video

By | 7 Comments

<a href=""> PL3DGE doesn’t drop for another five weeks, but it’s time for that final push before the album reaches shelves. Accordingly, Killer Mike is hitting his “Grind N Hustle” tour hard, and this weekend I happened to catch him and his DJ, our own Trackstar. Mike was kind enough to let me get a preview of his upcoming record, and without getting too wordy, it’s fire. There are bangers throughout, but my head never bobbed more than it did to the remix of <a href="">“Ready Set Go.”</a> From the sample up, the track is just phenomenal and appropriately deserves the visual treatment.

<a href=""> How the universe manages to align its stars is some extraordinary sh*t at times. A few weeks ago I found myself driving back from Bowie, Maryland, playing an old <a href="">Boosie</a> CD I made awhile back when the song "Green Light Special" came on (yep, my car is a huge inspiration for what I write here).

Playboy Tre Feat. Lil Jon – “Ready Go” Video

By | 3 Comments

<a href=""> "Ready! Ready! Go! Go! GottalilbreadbutIneedalotmore..." Top notch tracks deserve the top notch video treatment and Playboy Tre said his crunktastical duet with Lil Jon looked like a job for the Motion Family. Well it seems like our drunken master took a bit of lost to Rittz, Alabama's reigning Hip-Hop alcoholic. But instead of retiring into a life of soberiety, Tre decides to train for his next shot at killing his kidneys for the Big Gulp Champion Red Cup. Dark liquor for stamania, white poison for muscle building. And daily wrist-ups of malted barley just to stay sharp for The Last Call. Tre already <a href="">earned his stripes for 2010's binging royale</a>, but will it be enough to shake 2011's hangover.

T.I. Feat. Rick Ross – “Pledge Allegiance To The Swag” Video

By | 11 Comments

<a href=""> First things first and before we get into this video, credit to the word "swag" for having a shelf life longer than anyone could have ever predicted. The more people claim that it's dead, the more the term is actually used - in the same vein as a word I honestly despise, "flow," i.e. 'work flow' or 'gym flow' or 'study flow.' Moving on, however, remember when <a href="">Ross wasn't</a> exactly <a href="">a fan of T.I.</a>.

<a href=""> No disrespect to T.I., but the best song on F*ck A Mixtape was easily big homie Bigga's <a href="">"Ready Set Go"</a> so it's only right that it gets a video treatment.
