Future “Drunk In Love (Remix)”/ “Move That Dope” featuring Pharrell, Pusha T & Casino/ Ciara featuring Future “Anytime”

Out of all the rappers out there that would seem to be a perfect fit for a rap freestyle riff on Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love”, number one on that list would no doubt have to be Future, who could very easily fold his cracked, Auto-Tuned reggae croon within the track’s “Turn On The Lights”-indebted starry-eyed […]

Young Thug “Danny Glover”

After a few weeks floating on-line as an unreleased leak, Young Thug‘s “Danny Glover”–aka that song that’s been increasingly making noise for getting folks like Kanye and Drake turnt up to the ceiling–finally arrived this weekend in official CDQ…and if our repeated listening to it the past few hours is a predictor of anything, it […]

Isaiah Rashad featuring Michael Da Vinci “Brad Jordan”

Janelle Monáe featuring Big Boi, Cee-Lo Green & Solange “Electric Lady (Remix)”/ “I Want You Back (Jackson 5 Cover)”

One of our immediate favorites from Janelle Monáe‘s freshly dropped The Electric Lady album gets a mini-posse cut-styled twist on this remix, elevating the original’s already dope ATL-ien’s vibes with a couple cameo’s from two of the region’s finest. Giving an assist to Monáe’s rapping turn, here you have Cee-Lo Green spinning out some beautiful […]

Bobby Creekwater “Girls Love Lauryn”

On “Girls Love Lauryn”, one of the better flips to emerge from the popular, Drake-inspired “Girls Love…” meme, ATL emcee (and brief Shady Records signee) Bobby Creekwater pitches the perspective of being “almost famous” in a musical climate that’s just not as inspiring as it used to be. “Young girls should fuck with Lauryn/ Everything […]
