Sick Spring


I guess it all started with the leak of Drake and Jay-Z’s duet, “Light Up” last week.  Killer beat, Hov sounding brand new on an extended second verse.  Yeah, it was a good look.  Then, Kanye West’s new song “Power” leaked.  Whoa.  Really dope.  Everything you love about Kanye West music stuffed into one track.  Hard drums, amazing sample, ill lyrics, crazy flow, and controversy.

Also, Raekwon’s new mixtape Cocainism dropped, which definitely has some heat on it (check out “Alphabet Soup” and Ms. Sincere” right off the bat plus a collabo with Mobb Deep and joints produced by The Alchemist), and the Cool Kids mixtape Tacklebox came out, where they show off their signature production style while kicking lots of fly raps (just let it ride, but don’t miss “Flying Kytes”).  Then, Drake’s album Thank Me Later leaked in its entirety, and I gotta give it to the kid, he made a very hot album.  Combine all this with a solid release earlier in May from Nas and Damian Marley, Distant Relatives, and non hip hop, top quality albums from Band of Horses and the Black Keys, and I can confidently say that I’m overwhelmed with great music right now.  And I love it…

All links highlighted above are courtesy of Nah Right (except for one).  Looking forward to giving all this new music extensive burn in the whip through the rest of the spring and the summer, and I’m anxious to hear some more Kanye West shit.  Feel free to leave your thoughts on all these releases and leaks in the comments section.  Peace.
