Freddie Gibbs And YP – “Something New” Video

By | 8 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/08/closed-sessions-freddie-gibbs-edition"> Quick question. What's funnier: the fact these young women appear blind to the fact this song is about new p*ssy or the impeccable timing by all parties involved to release this video some 72 hours before Valentine's Day? That's irony at its finest and most derogatory moment, ladies and gents. About the song, however, "Something New" has been on steady rotation since it dropped <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/08/freddie-gibbs-feat-yp-something-new">last year</a> and not because it conjured memories of that <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4vKWFCWw04&feature=player_embedded#at=27">old Dr. Dre track</a>.

Video: YP & Freddie Gibbs – “Something New” At The Metro Chicago

By | 4 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/08/closed-sessions-freddie-gibbs-edition"> Ain't nothing like some new-new and that saying will never get old. I guess I could say the same for YP and Gangsta Gibbs' anti-panhandler memo, "Something New," which was featured on the younger bull's No Sleep Mixtape. Freddie G. was just doing his thang, midwestin' on the Tomorrow Never Knows Festival as headliner, when he gave the ladies and gents a surprise guest and threw YP on stage to rock with him. Virgil Solis and Tony Shane <a href="http://www.rubyhornet.com/rh-tv/freddie-gibbs-x-yp-something-new-live-at-the-metro">from RubyHornet</a> were on hand to film the festivities and what you see is what you get.

YP & DJ RTC – No Sleep

By | 5 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/yp-y-not-my-dream-video-2"> Good musicians embody their environment and convey their entire life experience through their music. After one listen of YP's No Sleep, you'll know he's 100% Chicago from his slang all the way to bone-chilling production he wishes to serve as the template for his 24/7 grind. Bleeding 773 with his every act of microphone malice, the young Bull links up with not one but two Chi-Town powerhouses in <a href="http://www.rubyhornet.com/new-post/yp-x-dj-rtc-no-sleep-mixtape">RubyHornet</a> and <a href="http://www.djbooth.net/index/mixtapes/entry/yp-no-sleep">DJBooth</a> and uses his spotlight to deliver a project stuffed with realism while others would squander their new audiences' attention with surreal fluff.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/08/closed-sessions-freddie-gibbs-edition"> It's fascinating to follow the trajectory of some of those old soul or jazz joints that were hot when our parents were our age, and trace them through time to see how various artists flip, alter, and incorporate them into music that is relevant today. Take for example, "<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84jDDjkiHcI">Bumpy’s Lament</a>" by Isaac Hayes.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/08/download-freddie-gibbs-str8-killa-no-filla-no-dj"> With the ridiculous amount of music we’re flooded with on a monthly, weekly and even daily basis, it’s easy to take for granted all the work that goes into producing just one song (yeah, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/prince-says-the-internet-is-completely-over#comment-936189">TRA</a> & <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/prince-says-the-internet-is-completely-over#comment-936597">El Prez</a> what you guys mentioned a while back finally sunk in).
