MUSIC: N.E.R.D. Ft CRS And Pusha T – Everyone Nose Remix

14 05 2008

The friendly gentlemen of N.E.R.D. have enlisted the help of Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco and the Clipse’s Pusha T for the remix to their ode to cocaine addiction Everyone Nose. I wasnt to fond of the original and im not crazy about this remix but it will do while we all patiently wait for news of an actual CRS (Child Rebel Soldiers) release. A beat that can only really be described as >N.E.R.D-esque and some average lyrics fill most of the track, but I was pleasantly surprised by the appearance of another one of my favorite MCs Pusha. His feature alone proved the track worthy of listening from beginning to end. Props to Lowkey at for the track. He gone…

Lupe Fiasco – The Cool (review)

14 12 2007

When it comes to modern (post 2000) mainstream hip-hop, there aren’t too many new emcees to make purists such as myself poke our heads up out of the underground and take notice. Save for Joe Budden and Little Brother for the brief period when they were on a major, lyrics have taken a backseat to the bass driven beats and catchy hooks that dominate the landscape. So when Lupe Fiasco dropped Food & Liquor last year, the raw abilities displayed were enough to make us all push up our lighters for hip-hop. So, a little more than a year later, Lupe returns to see if he can avoid the sophomore jinx with the conceptually driven The Cool. Dumbin Down after the commute.
