HOT TAKES IN HERRE
Been liking this hot-take formula even tho the words "hot take" sound disgusting together. Here are four of my hottest, steamiest takes.
KODAK BLACK - FOR THE FAME
There are only two careers where stints in juvie look good on the resume: prisoner and rapper. Kodak Black's knack for raps and incarceration suggests he will end up as at least one of the two. IDK, maybe he is a mathlete or candystriper in his free time, but somehow I doubt it. The game been missin a steak-and-potatoes reality rapper since Boosie went semi-Recovery on Touchdown, and Kodak seems to be auditioning for the role. In this instance, his vocals are pitched so high his screech is more munchkin than Boosiean. If nothing else, a teenager who namechecks Soulja Slim and Gunplay is on the right path.
NINO MAN & JADAKISS - ROAD TRIP
New York rap has been out of style for so long that New York rappers now get the same instinctive scorn Southern rappers got until '05 (at least). Everyone likes hating New York rap more than they actually hate it.
Stop the hate. "Road Trip" is oatmeal for the ears.
JIDENNA & KENDRICK LAMAR - CLASSIC MAN (REMIX)
Will the Kendrick bump finally allow "Classic Man" to become the hit it deserves to be? Hearing K-Dot vamp on something besides rank body odor jazzbar pap is a bitter reminder of the rapper he was before his worst Baduistic tendencies took the reins.
SKEME & THE GAME - FIND OUT
Best song on Ingleworld 2 after "36 Oz." Now that gay marriage is in the bag, maybe we can direct our energy to getting this Game verse stricken from the record.
