Hip-Hop meets soul meets go-go on tabi Bonney’s “Need A Girl.
Upon skimming through <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/casey-veggies">Casey Veggies'</a> latest installment of his Customized Greatly mixtape series, it seems there's somewhat of a sonic identity crisis going on.
One of my favorite episodes of Everybody Hates Chris was when he made the wrestling team.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=183308"> “DC Shoes ain’t D.C. Shit...” – Fat Trel Fat Trel is an enigma wrapped in a riddle, wrapped in a grape cigarillo. He is aligned with the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area’s most recognizable Hip-Hop artist, recent Maybach Music Group signee Wale. Oddly enough, Fat Trel is everything Wale is not. He wears North Face, not Billionaire Boys Club. He’s much more likely to rhyme over a Lex Luger beat than something by 9th Wonder (though some would argue that might be the case for Wale as well now). Beyond aesthetics, Trel represents the tatted, dreaded, pill-popping, O Cup drinking generation of teens and young adults that have been striking fear in the hearts of suburban Metro commuters for years. His hunger, unchecked aggression and youthful angst hearken back to a time when out-of-towners were wary of visiting our nation’s capital. In short: He is D.C., not the DMV. Trel first showed up on the national radar while supporting the aforementioned Wale on “The Posse Cut (Who Don’t)” from this last outing, 2010’s More About Nothing. Full of uncompromising trap tales, hook-free stream of consciousness mind spray and bawdy sexual boasts expected of a guy who runs with a crew called the <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_mo9LRRH">Slutty Boyz</a>, Trel established himself as a force to be reckoned with in DC and beyond.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/09/saigon-just-blaze-gotta-believe-it-vide"> In 2011, this is as close to a "Roll Call" as you're going to get. Annnd, in 2011, this could be considered the first noteworthy Hip-Hop full-length record to get the ball rolling; set the standard for where the beats, rhymes and life should be propelled to elevate the music standard in the commercial district. (You hear that Dre?). You've seen a little bit, and heard a few more but holy taco Batman, this is the full enchilada we're dealing with. Kanye West, Jay-Z, Marsha Ambrosius and some guy named Just Blaze (?) all help Saigon finally get his Greatest Story told and sold on 2.15.11. Three years ago, some of you current skeptics' heads would have exploded like that White supremacist on that Dave Chappelle skit. But since we're all here, how does it sound? If we're taking prop bets, how many <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/ratings">Cigs</a> will TSS Crew dole out for it.

With his rise and recent success, Raheem opened the door for Phil Adé first and now the rest of the 368 Music roster - Dee Boy, Da Future and Stello - is bumrushing the show.
