This is Suai. I've really fallen off the blogging band wagon and let ya'll hangin'...=_=' sorry about that, it just seems that between trying to hustle up a job and finish up these last two weeks of school it just CANNOT be over. But: THe good news is i have some new joints i'd like to put up for discussion!
First on the chopping block:
Aloe Blacc- 'I need a dolla' if you've even seen one episode of the cult show (at least my cult) HOW TO MAKE IT IN AMERICA you've heard that Uber catchy theme song of the really cool voice and dope as hell beat. Pretty much it follows Aloe's story of getting laid off, drinking, and redemption. It has a very old sound which is very refreshing as a break from mainstream anything, as it is a follow follow game. It's a really great song in general but especially as a warm up song for the party your throwing this weekend for Sr. skip day or as a hustle focus turn on song.
Bottom Line: Great for Pre Party Warm Up mingling music, or as a game face on song.
Bruno Mars- Ft. B.o.B. and Cee-Lo: "The other side", I didn't like this at first but it deff got better the second time i listened to it and really listened. Bruno gives us a really nice warm warm up to the song and provides a nice constant hook for the whole song Cee-Lo provided a nice contrast in pitch and Bobby Ray gave great flow. It really sealed it all together to keep us listening as it gave that little bit of hip hop that you're looking for.
Bottom Line: Good song to listen to with your girlfriend in the car who only sorta dables in music. If your girl is dope as a pipe and really delves into it skip this one over.
Yonas- It couldn't be done: At first this may seem like too light weight a beat for you music coneseir, but really sitting down and listening to this was really reminiscent of Lupe, in the sense of the truth being spoken and sweet, warm beats constant in the background, This is the perfect song for your outdoor
Bottom Line: Great for that cookout you were planning, not so much for the general 'Bad Ass' playlist though.
K. Sparks: Go Harder: Well already i love the name as it just oozes bad ass music. The initial hook isn't bad either, it's smooth and ear catching and makes you wanna move...hella slow. That contrasted with the fast as lightning flow being spit creates teh perfect atmosphere. Great for the club that your working later, or mid party when everyone is too tired to dance to say 'I'm goin' in'.
Bottom Line: Great for that mid time party or club when everyones sugar levels are at a low.
Now, i'm a little late on this next joint but it's worth noting again:
The Dream ft. TI: Make up Bag: Just what you'd expect from the Dream, smooth, easy to dance too, beautifully written (not that i'm saying that's a bad thing), great hook, enough so that if you don't understand anything else that he's saying you'll wanna keep listening. Great Joint for my Ladies!! Great for the clubs to slow everyone down and let everyone dance up on that fine thing you've been eyeing all night.
Bottom Line: great for the clubs to dance up on that sexeh thing you've been eyeing all night, or for your house party to get people dancing slow.
Taio Cruz: You know, the one with Kesha's 'Dirty Picture' well his new jawn, is on the same lines as DP with the heavy electrics and repetitive wording but i mean it works for him, I don't think it's especially special in the hause department but it's ok, it'd be great to get people back out onto the dance floor after it's been kinda hyatis-y.
Bottom Line: Great for getting the energy back up but i wouldn't use this as a follow up beat to anything Greatness.
Clinton Sparks: ft. Jermaine Dupri- The beat instantly catches attention, and sustaines it with the heavy bass and drum machine, not in a bad way either, GREAT Jam Skate song. It is great for the floor, as people can easily follow along to the beat. It's actually
Bottom Line: Great to keep/get the energy of the club or party your working, even a school venue because it's pretty low on the vulgarity scale, even less work for you. Score.
Well, that's all for now folks.
Keep it locked pretties. And induldge yourself: Subscribe, we both know you want too.
all my love
