Status Ain’t Hood: Fetty Wap Is Like “Hey What’s Up Hello”

During the dark, horrifying Macklemore Ascendancy period of 2013, there was a lot of talk about how the top spot on the Billboard singles charts had become a whites-only zone. And it’s true: In the past few years, white pop-rappers like Macklemore and Iggy Azalea have managed to blow up huge by bypassing rap’s traditionally… More »

Curren$y – “Alert” (Feat. Styles P)

New Orleans weed-rapper Curren$y is almost alarmingly consistent; he cranks out effortless, listenable mixtapes so frequently that it’s hard to be excited about them anymore. Curren$y really fell into his lane when he linked up with veteran rap producer Ski Beatz and made 2010’s great Pilot Talk and Pilot Talk 2 albums. So it’s cool… More »

The Lox – “All We Know” Video

It’s been a while since Yonkers goon-rap veterans the Lox recorded anything as a unit, but all three members — Jadakiss, Styles P, Sheek Louch — recently reassembled on their new EP The Trinity: 2nd Sermon. Their new video for the EP track “All We Know” is commendably guttural old-school New York hoodies-and-Tims stuff, with… More »

Lil Wayne – “Gotti” (Feat. Jadakiss & Styles P)

Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V was supposed to come out later this year, but now it’s been delayed indefinitely, which is crazy. Wayne is one of the biggest stars in rap, and if he can’t get a firm release date, should we just ball up the whole music business and throw it away? But Wayne… More »

Styles P – “Lush Styles” (Prod. Lushlife)

Styles P, the legendary hardass Yonkers rapper, has been revealing something of an internet-weirdo streak lately, collaborating with people like Azealia Banks, Action Bronson, Curren$y, and the Philadelphia rapper/producer Lushlife. Today, Styles releases the new album The World’s Most Hardest MC Project, and it includes the scrunchface AraabMuzik collab “Araab Styles.” And now Lushlife ha… More »

Azealia Banks – “Nathan” (Feat. Styles P)

Harlem dance-rap sensation Azealia Banks has just released yet another free MP3 out into the online ether. Like a lot of her other songs, this one has her going in over a jittery dance-music beat, this time from Drums Of Death. Unlike a lot of her other songs, this one also features a veteran New… More »

Lushlife – “Still I Hear The Word Progress” Video (Feat. Styles P)

Lushlife’s clip for the airwalking Styles P collab “Still I Hear The Word Progress” is the rare rap video that doesn’t show any rappers. Instead, director Willy Berliner gives us the story of a suburban dad who goes on a trance-induced, doughnut-based killing spree. As in: He hallucinates that people have gigantic doughnuts for heads,… More »

Lushlife – “Still I Hear The Word Progress” (Feat. Styles P)

Last year, we rewarded Lushlife’s smooth, smart No More Golden Days with a Mixtape Of The Week distinction. Today, the promising Philly rapper put out the first single from his forthcoming LP Plateau Vision, “Still I Hear the Word Progress,” a solid skill showcase featuring Yonkers rabble-rouser Styles P (a figure who is no strangerMore »

Mixtape Of The Week: Styles P & Curren$y #The1st28

Before I get into the very strong new Styles P/Curren$y EP, I should make something clear: The best mixtape I’ve heard in the past week isn’t this one; it’s Consignment: Favor For A Favor, the epic new tape from deadeyed Detroit street-rapper Boldy James. But that Boldy tape is massive — 26 songs, 80 minute… More »

Download Curren$y & Styles P #The1st28 EP

Here’s an interesting combination that nobody could’ve anticipated: Zoned-out New Orleans internet-rap institution Curren$y teaming up with hardcore NY-rap veteran and Lox/D-Block member Styles P for a new EP. That’s exactly what happens on the brand-new #The1st28, a gorgeously produced five-track offering that also features appearances from Fiend, Daz, and Deelow. It comes only three… More »

Uncle Murda – “Warning (Remix)” (Feat. French Montana, Jadakiss, Styles P, Jim Jones, Vado & Cam’ron)

All you really need to know about this posse cut in in this Cam’ron line: “SMACK THE SHIT OUT YOUR NEIGHBOR / SMACK THE SHIT OUT THE MAYOR / SMACK THE SHIT OUT YOUR PREGNANT BABY MOM WHILE SHE IN LABOR.” Also, nobody rips tag-team verses anymore the way Jada and Styles do here. Song… More »
