Dedication – Chief Keef – Apple Music

EDITORS’ NOTES

It wasn’t long ago that Chief Keef took the rap game by storm, influencing a generation of rappers with the minimalistic, emotive rap style that put his native Chicago back on the map. Dedication is the result of Keef’s successors wearing that same style thin, forcing him to innovate once again. The album is Keef at his most lyrical, eschewing the nasally melody he’d also tried on for a period, relying here on well-enunciated bars. The bass, too, is subdued, Keef’s raps carrying the brunt of the load, and doing so with grace and ease on the double-time “Less Speed.” Tucked deep at the end is “Be Back,” a song that boasts a cheeky production nod to “Faneto,” Keef’s last bona fide smash.

Artist Spotlight – Cardi B music

Cardi B Music

Cardi B

Gaining exposure as a popular cast member of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: New York, rapper Cardi B is also a raw and aggressive rapper in the style of Lil’ Kim and Foxy Brown. The former stripper and social media star made her television debut on the reality show in late 2015, joining a cast that included Remy Ma. A year later, she made her musical debut alongside dancehall singer Popcaan on Shaggy’s “Boom Boom” single. The solo single “Cheap Ass Weave” and the mixtape Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1 soon followed, both in early 2016. Two more singles, “Foreva” and “Wash Poppin’,” followed that summer. A second mixtape, Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2, was released in early 2017. That same year, Cardi signed with Atlantic Records and scored a hit with the single “Bodak Yellow,” which climbed to the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100 in late September. ~ David Jeffries

Check out: Luv Is Rage 2 by Lil Uzi Vert – #HipHop #Music 2017

 

16 Songs


EDITORS’ NOTES

A vertiginous, gone-viral stage dive at 2017’s Rolling Loud Festival upheld Uzi’s claims to being a “rock star.” On Luv Is Rage 2, he engages one of rock’s other key tropes: peering into the abyss. With his sharply melodic flow, he makes plenty of allusions to his success, comparing his diamonds to Pharrell’s over the video-game bleeps of “For Real” before trading triumphant verses with the man himself on “Neon Guts.” However, he also peels back some layers of an unsettled soul, confronting the pain of a broken relationship on “Feelings Mutual” and “XO TOUR Llif 3.”

#NowPlaying: West 1996, Pt. 2 by Lute – New #HipHop #Music 2017

About Lute

Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, rapper Lute (born Luther Nicholson) first burst onto the underground hip-hop scene as a member of the rap collective Forever FC, alongside Jimmy Kelso, High I’m Ry, and SchylerChaise. Lute delivered his first solo mixtape, West 1996, in 2012 while still a member of Forever FC, but took a backseat after the birth of his daughter. With the group and Lute receiving plaudits from the likes of Rick Ross and Pete Rock, it wasn’t long before he was snapped up by J. Cole in 2015, signing to his then burgeoning label Dreamville. His first effort for the label dropped at the end of that year on the compilation Revenge of the Dreamers, Vol. 2, with his track “Still Slummin'” a posthumous production by J. Dilla. Two years later, the single “Juggin'” appeared and signaled Lute’s return. His proper debut album, West 1996, Vol. 2 followed. ~ Rich Wilson

About Hoodie Allen

Putting a bit more pop into the pop-rap of folks like Asher Roth and Sam Adams, rapper Hoodie Allen went from Internet favorite to charting artist with the release of his 2012 EP All American. Born Steven Markowitz and raised on Long Island, Hoodie was frat-rap from the beginning, having met producer RJF during an Alpha Epsilon Pi-hosted party at the University of Pennsylvania. The two would release the street albums Bagels & Beats and Making Waves and win MTV’s Best Music on Campus Award in 2009, but his big hit came with the 2010 track “You Are Not a Robot,” which sampled Marina and the Diamonds’ hit “I Am Not a Robot” and landed on his popular mixtape Pep Rally. A headlining tour across the U.S. followed before Hoodie made his official debut with the All American EP in 2012. Released on his own label, the EP debuted at number ten on Billboard’s Top Albums, and was followed in 2013 by the acoustic EP Americoustic. His debut album, People Keep Talking, arrived a year later, featuring the singles “Movie” and “Dumb for You” along with guest appearances from Ed Sheeran and Alex Wiley. It climbed to number eight on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and was followed by the EPs All American (2012) and Americoustic (2013). The sophomore effort Happy Camper landed in 2016 and while it only climbed to number 28 on the Billboard 200, it did top the magazine’s rap chart. ~ David Jeffries

All Things Work Together by Lecrae – Hip-Hop/Rap • 2017

About Lecrae

One of the leading lights in the gospel-rap movement, Lecrae also has the chart-topping records to prove it. For the typical music fan, his hard demeanor and hard beats might belie what his lyrics are really about: his adoration of Jesus Christ. The main tenet influencing his mission and music is taken from Romans 1:16 of the Bible, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel.”

Although he was born on Houston’s south side, Lecrae Moore grew up in Denver, Colorado and San Diego, California. It was at the age of 19 that he decided to give his life to Christ. Using conventional methods to spread the Gospel, he began working for ministerial services, including his presidency of ReachLife Ministries, conducting Bible studies, and many other projects. However, Lecrae’s popular success came from his burgeoning Christian rap career. In 2004, he co-founded Reach Records with Ben Washer; one year later, the label released his debut album, Real Talk. Also, as a part of the 116 Clique, he put out 116 Clique: The Compilation Album.

In July 2006, Lecrae dropped his breakout album, the acclaimed After the Music Stops. It debuted at number one on the Christian Music Trade Association’s R&B/Hip-Hop chart and peaked at number five on Billboard’s Gospel Albums chart. His 2008 effort, Rebel, topped that same chart for two weeks while his 2010 release, Rehab, reigned at the top for one. Rehab was also nominated for Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album at the 53rd Grammy Awards. A sequel album, Rehab: The Overdose, arrived in 2011, and won him his first two Dove Awards (for Rap/Hip-Hop Album of the Year and Rap/Hip-Hop Song of the Year for “Hallelujah”).

Lecrae’s sixth album, Gravity, appeared in September 2012. A star-studded release, it featured Big K.R.I.T., Mali Music, Trip Lee, and Andy Mineo. Gravity quickly became the biggest-selling Christian rap album in history, debuting at number three on the overall charts, topping digital charts, and, early the following year, winning him the Grammy Award for Best Gospel Album (a prize no Christian rapper had ever won before). That same year, Lecrae issued the first installment of his Church Clothes mixtape series. Church Clothes 2 swiftly followed in 2013.

Lecrae’s seventh album, 2014’s Anomaly, managed to outdo its predecessor. It debuted at number one — both on Billboard’s gospel chart and the overall chart — the first album to do so. It also received plenty of critical acclaim and won a Dove Award. Lecrae went on to appear on Lindsey Stirling’s 2016 album Brave Enough and contributed to the soundtrack to The Shack (“River of Jordan” with Breyan Isaac). He also signed a deal with Columbia in order to expand the audience of his Reach Records label. The first single from Lecrae’s upcoming Columbia debut, “Can’t Stop Me Now (Destination),” arrived in October of that year. Several months later, in February 2017, a second single, the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Blessings,” was released. Following a third single, “Hammer Time,” Lecrae delivered his debut for Columbia, All Things Work Together, in September 2017. ~ Cyril Cordor

Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi is a Brooklyn-based rapper from Cleveland whose debut single, “Day ‘n’ Nite,” became an online favorite in 2008. Born Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi in suburban Cleveland, his career took off after he moved to Brooklyn and became affiliated with Fool’s Gold, the label of DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. The label released the Day ‘n’ Nite EP in February 2008 and circulated a Crookers remix around the blogosphere, drumming up a good deal of buzz in the process.

It didn’t hurt that Kid Cudi began to receive increasing press attention, including a nod from Rolling Stone (which touted him among the magazine’s Top Five best indie hip-hop artists of 2008). Not long after the release of “Day ‘n’ Nite,” Cudi began touring with the Fool’s Gold collective, which performed at a South by Southwest showcase and subsequently joined forces with Steve Aoki and his Dim Mak collective for a North American tour.

After the remixed version of “Day ‘n’ Nite” climbed the U.K. singles charts, Cudi released his conceptual debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, in the summer of 2009. A year later he returned with a sequel, Man on the Moon, Vol. 2: The Legend of Mr. Rager. In 2012, he teamed with “Day ‘n’ Nite” producer Dot da Genius and introduced their rock-rap band, WZRD. A year after that, Indicud arrived and included contributions from soft rock sisters HAIM and former Fleet Foxes drummer Father John Misty alongside rappers A$AP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar.

In early 2014, Cudi surprised fans by dropping the next installment in his space odyssey with little warning. Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon, which featured a guest spot from Raphael Saadiq, was issued on February 25 on Wicked Awesome/Republic. The sprawling Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven followed in 2015 with a grunge-inspired rock sound much closer to the WZRD project. Just over a year later, Cudi returned to the rap world with Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’, which featured André 3000, Pharrell Williams, Travis Scott, and Willow Smith. ~ Jason Birchmeier

About Kevin Gates

Transferring the reflective style of rappers like Drake to the genre of gangsta rap, Louisiana-based MC Kevin Gates spent five-plus years on the mixtape circuit before climbing into the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 album chart with his 2013 release, Stranger Than Fiction. Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Gates made his mixtape debut in 2007 with Pick of da Litter. Mixtapes with titles like All In and I Don’t Know What to Call It, Vol. 1 appeared over the next few years. After he dropped the popular The Luca Brasi Story mixtape — one of the first releases on Bread Winners’ Association, a label he co-founded with wife and booking manager Dreka Gates — things changed quickly. It led to appearances on high-profile mixtapes from Pusha T and Gudda Gudda, and Gates subsequently signed a contract with major label Atlantic. Stranger Than Fiction, the first of several releases to bear the logos of Bread Winners’ Association and Atlantic, was released that same year. It featured guest spots from Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Starlito, and debuted at number 37 on the Billboard 200 chart. Plies, 2 Chainz, and Doe B helped deliver his 2014 mixtape, By Any Means. The next year saw the single “Kno One” preview Islah. Gates’ proper debut album, it was issued in January 2016, debuted at number two, and was certified gold before the rapper returned with an EP-length mixtape, Murder for Hire II, that May. The single “What If,” whose main hook referenced Joan Osborne’s 1995 hit “What If God Was One of Us,” appeared in March 2017. ~ David Jeffries
