Penn State student Christian Petredis came up with the beat this past Summer with Sam Narick signing the hook. Then they grabbed Maserati Mo and Mike Wallz, both Penn State football players, to drop the rap verses and “Falling To You” was born. For a few college students frickin around on laptops, we have to say, the track is really sick.
This girl hasn’t even been alive for 24-hours and she already has a song written about her by a legendary rapper. It helps that the legendary rapper happens to be her father Jay-Z. New track from Brooklyn’s biggest star featuring the one and only, Blue Ivy Carter.
The former Rapper and “N**** With Attitude,” celebrates iconic architecture in LA. Could anybody be less gangster than Ice Cube?
Tupac, Biggie, Nas, Jay-Z, Kanye, this kid. I’m calling it right now. This kids name is Khaliyl Iloyi, and as insane as it may be, he’s actually rapping with neither autotune or fully developed speech skills. That’s more than we can say for Drake and Lil Wayne. Don’t bother checking Spotify and iTunes for his album though. I already checked…
Stanley from The Office, everyone’s favorite not-so-jolly fat guy, has his own music video, and as stated in the title, it is pretty baller. Leslie David Baker (What a name) is seen climbing out of bed with two girls, throwing on a Hugh Hefner smoking jacket over his silk pajamas and proceeding to have the day you’ve always dreamed of. If you’re in Office fan, (Who isn’t?) you just need to see it.
Phenomenally talented MC’s like Jay Electronica, Childish Gambino or Big K.R.I.T may never have bank accounts that match their talent (although the last two are slowly blowing up), while guys like B.O.B will continue to rake in undeserved cash for their repeated insults to the genre of hip-hop. With Take Care, Drake has firmly planted himself in the former category of the overpaid/underrated dichotomy, and takes every chance he has to remind you of this.
Par-City is the revival of the true hip-hop sound that has been long been dead thanks to auto-tune. They are one of The Campus Socialite’s favorite new acts and the “You Won’t” track has been played on repeat since 11 am. This song has an infectious chorus that will have you chanting “That’s the thug in me” for the next 3 days. Listen to it below and see what all the hype is about, but be warned, you won’t shake this beat for 3 weeks.
Last week we posted the epic new video for Childish Gambino’s “Bonfire,” the new single off the new album, “Camp.” We thought we were going to have to wait until November 15th, but on today, November 7th, you can listen to the album in it’s entirety. Find out how right after the jump.
In the social media age, there’s a lot of talk going around about the saviors of Rap. Guys who undercut the bullstuff that goes along with radio stations and record labels, yet still manage to make a splash with sick flows and national fans. It might be too early to say for sure, but Primary Element of Penn State University is looking like one of those groups.
