Scarface and Nas – Hip Hop

Off of DJ Khaled’s (please tell me what this guy does) latest album, Kiss the Ring, Scarface and Nas describe their metaphors for Hip Hop.  Especially Nas gets very clever with his wordplay and this works perfectly over Justice League’s haunting beat.

2 Chainz ft. The Weeknd – Like Me

I am kind of split on 2 Chainz, half of me thinks he is just a novelty, I kind of put him in a box with Gucci Mane and even Wayne sometimes, meaning they have great guest appearances, but whole songs are kind of tough to get through.  If you listen to the lyrics besides the catchy lines most of them are pretty laughable.  That being said I found some decent tracks on his latest album, Based on a TRU Story.  I like “Extremely Blessed,” ft. The Dream, “Countdown,” ft. Chris Brown, and the song below, “Like Me.”   Sampling the R&B crooner, 2 Chainz fits nicely over the sample.
