Gowhere Summer 2013 Playlist

Pharrell kicks off our summer playlist. With staking claim to the summer with featured hit after hit (see: Get LuckyBlurred Lines, and the newly released ATM Jam with Azealia Banks), we’re gonna keep it going this year with an album that defined summer in 2006.

Pharrell – In My Mind [Entire Album]

The album’s two singles – “Can I Have It Like That” f/ Gwen Stefani & “Number One” f/ Kanye West –  set the tone for an entire body of work that can be summed up in one word:fresh

Sgt. Tibs’ suggests we “start at track 1, roll the windows down, and ride out for the next 45 minutes with your shades down.”

Jay Z f/ Justin Timberlake – Holy Grail

Brand spankin’ new music from the Suit and Tie gents.  Nothing like wearing tuxedos in the summer for no reason.

Jay Z and Beyonce – Bonnie and Clyde Part II (On the Run)

Does Jay Z sleep? I suppose not, if he is still on the run with his Bonnie to his Clyde by his side.

Busta Rhymes – #Twerkit

K Max chooses this sexually charged beat filled sweaty bodies, whats not to love? #twerkit Also… he chose Mayer Hawthorne. Ladies, K Max has a nice and naughty side!

Mayer Hawthorne – Her Favorite Song

Kick off your summer groove with this beat and win the ladies over.

Jay Z – Feelin It

Jay Z keeps it real with his raps that just make your heart beat along – just like CoverItGirl herself!

2 Chainz f/ Pharrell – Feds Watchin

Starring 2 Chainz with his crazy flow and Pharrell, Feds are watchin’ you dance to this beat at your next house party

Dave Pracyse – F.Y.T.

ChiTown, Stand up!

Pusha T – Number On The Boards

DJ Averi Minor recommends this anthem to charge you up for whatever summer nights might bring you.

Mariah Carey Featuring Miguel – #Beautiful 

Jodeci picks the perfect Mariah song for this summer. Honey colored hair and butterflies, Mariah embodies summer. Slow down and cool off to this #beautiful beat.

Beyoncé – Schoolin’ Life

Whether if you’re 16, in your 20s, 30s, 40, and up, Beyonce definitely teaches us a thing or two.

Kelly Rowland – Put Your Name On It

Give the ladies something to dance to.

Jay-Z Featuring UGK – Big Pimpin’

If this doesn’t exemplify summer, I don’t know what does.

Drake Featuring J. Cole – Jodeci Freestyle

Roll down you windows and drive a little slower to this beat

Fantasia Featuring Kelly Rowland and Missy Elliot – Without Me

Nothing like a group of beautiful songstresses serenading you.

50 Cent – In Da Club

This really kicks your backyard grilling up a notch.

Miley Cyrus – Party In the USA

Srirachana hates herself for loving this song so much – Major guilty pleasure alert.

Drake – Best I Ever Had

Best I ever had just makes us think of those short lived summer loves.

Nicki Minaj – Super Bass

There’s just something about the intro to this beat that makes you feel like you’re jumping into the pool.

Rita Ora – How We Do (Party)

She sings her spin on famous biggie lyrics to the perfect summer beat – sure to get your partying and  bullsh*tting.

The Beatles – Ballad of John & Yoko

Anything beatles, please.

Kid Cudi f. Chip – Hyyer

Get trippy off this song.

Chromeo – Bonafied Lovin

Synthfunk, whatever genre this is, we love it.

Gorillaz – Super Fast Jellyfish

Trippy visuals and fun lyrics… none of get whats its truly about but have deciphering it.

Lil’ Rob – Summer Lovin’

This tune is HelloKeena’s yearly summer jam.

The Cool Kids – Mikey Rocks

Classic.  Stay cool through the heat with these kids.

Kero One – In All the Wrong Places

Soothing to soul, like an ice cold glass of lemonade.

Daft Punk – Robot Rock 

What does Daft Punk touch and not turn into gold?

Weezer – the entire GREEN ALBUM

Teddy choses the best Weezer album for your listening pleasure.  Not all weezer albums were great, people even petitioned to make them STOP making new music, but the ENTIRE Green Album reminds us why we love them oh so much.

 

And last, but definitely not least…


Janet Jackson – Need Someone to Call my Lover

The banjo just sets the tone to meet that girl/guy of your dreams, wherever that may be .

 

 

GWHH Premiere: Stadium Status “Special” f/ ShowYouSuck & Chris Lesage (prod. ElSchmitty)

Ill Central members Stadium Status, Chris LeSage, and ElSchmitty team up with ShowYouSuck to drop this new single off the upcoming Monsters Ink project. Both Stadium Status and ShowYouSuck deliver hard bars over ElSchmitty’s production, while Chris LeSage comes in and keep things cool with smooth vocals for the hook. I’d say “Special” is more than fitting for play at the moment considering the time of year. It’s summertime Chi baby. Monsters Ink drops July 1st. Keep up.

Artwork by yours truly.

Ant’s Week’in Raps

After a hiatus last week, ya boy is back with some new tunes that dropped throughout this week. So no worries if you didn’t get a chance to tune yourself in. I gotchu covered. Go ahead and peep game below this time around I bring you new releases from Pavy, Curren$y, Fonz-E Mak, and more.

Pavy “On My Lord”

 

Pavy sure brought the heat. This new release of his entitled “On My Lord” is one of the coldest releases I heard all week. Oh It’s on for 2013. My mans about to come up tough and hard. So y’all be sure to lookout, because there’s a bunch more cold shit on the way. That I know. Pavy’s “Lord Jesus” video masterpiece to drop real soon.

Curren$y “Viva La Life” f/ Corner Boy P

 

I’m definitely more up on spitter than I am on Fab or Push. So for that I say Curren$y’s version of “Life So Exciting” > the original. To each it’s own you know. Don’t really give a f*ck what you think either. Just grab the download. It’s Jet Life mothaf*ckas!

Fonz-E Mak “Alarm Clock” f/ U.G.

 

I knew this one was making my end of the week list after I gave it that first listen. Fonz and UG of the 2008ighties crew brought tight rhymes over a smooth bumpin’ groove on this release entitled, “Alarm Clock.” Bet I’m hella looking forward to more from these youngins this upcoming year. Just like I believe Pavy is going to have a great year, I believe the same for this young clique of Chi city MC’s. So to my homie Fonz I say…bring it this year g. I’m looking out for you. I got you. Y’all go ahead and enjoy this now. Tune up!

Joey Bada$$ “Unorthodox” (prod. DJ Premier)

 

When the legendary DJ Premier gives you a hot beat such as this “Unorthodox” jawn, there’s now way you’re delivering anything less than murk. So you already know what to expect with young Pro Era rapper, Joey Bada$$ on the track. Peep game above and grab that CDQ.

Y’all be sure to enjoy the heat and have a safe and happy weekend. Turn up!

Ant’s Week’in Raps

After a 2 week break from this sh*t, I’m back. Unfortunately for us this past week didn’t produce too much heat, just a bunch of okay’s and solids (smh). Lets not let that stop us from enjoying our weekend with some new bumps though. Take these few tracks I felt were a bit better and more fitting than the rest. This week I bring you records from the likes of Lil Wayne, Young Scooter, Alex Wiley, Dubb, and more. Lets get it!

Young Scooter “Jugg Season” f/ Future x “Made It Through The Struggle” f/ Ma$e & Verse Simmonds

 

Honestly, I think I enjoyed “Jugg Season” a bit more. Future makes that record. But Ma$e who I never expected to come with sh*t again, brought it on “Make It Through The Struggle.” No idea what got into homie but he gets two thumbs up for his effort on this record. Now if only he could stay consistent with that sh*t. Guess we’ll just see what happens. Personally, I doubt it. Prove me wrong though.

Lil Wayne “Rich As F**k” f/ 2 Chainz

 

Said to come off Wayne’s upcoming album, I Am Not A Human Being II, is this new release featuring 2 Chainz on the hook entitled, “Rich As F**k.” I’ll admit, I’m not that much into Wayne as I used to be. And I’m sure that’s the case for many others around too. So Wayne can thank his 2 Chainz hook for the feature. Oh…and smfh at the end of this song. Super wack!

Dubb “Hypnotized” f/ Smoke DZA

Dubb and Smoke DZA combine powers on a record that just makes me wanna lean the f**k out and get hella faded. Not such a bad idea either. It’s lean season. So lets get it this weekend. Leh go!

Alex Wiley “Swish”

 

Tomorrow is Alex’s big listening party event @ Jugrnaut for #ClubWiley. So why not throw one from him in the mix to get y’all prepped and going. Those of you who didn’t catch this when I posted it yesterday can hop on now. #ClubWiley coming soon!

Ca$h Out “M.O.E. RMX” f/ Trinidad James

 

To be quite honest, this is just a filler. No one really came with it like that this week with the exception of a select few. So therefore I don’t really have sh*t to say about this record. Just take it and go enjoy your weekend.

Have a great and safe weekend y’all. #Salute!

Roscoe Dash “Whassup” f/ Waka Flocka

“It was really organic. We could have been rushed back in the studio to duplicate the success of No Hands. We pass each other and critique each others work in the studio all the time. But the timing of this song felt right. So we accomplish what we wanted to. A sound that continues what we started yet its fresh enough to kick off 2014!”

– Roscoe Dash

A New Year’s new single from Roscoe Dash.

Ant’s Week’in Raps

Gotta say that this week brought forth a lot of bumpin’ records. So strap yourself down and tune in as I rap my week up with this new edition of my #WeekInRaps. Features for the weekend from Young Jeezy, Chief Keef, Wale, Pill, and more. Please enjoy and have a safe and happy weekend y’all. Good luck.

Chief Keef “Hate Bein’ Sober” f/ 50 Cent

 

This new Chief Keef has probably gotta be the one jam I’ve bumped to most this week. I know O boy’s lyrics ain’t the greatest…but I gotta give it to young dude. Homie knows how to make records that hit. So whether you hate em or love em, you’re still bound to hear this one for some time to come in the upcoming weeks. Especially since it features both 50 and Wiz on the track. This version however has no Wiz on it. And I’m not about to go find the version that does for y’all. Simply enjoy what we have to offer or go find that shit yourself.

Wale “Back 2 Ballin'” f/ French Montana

 

MMG’s Wale and Bad Boy’s French Montana are “Back 2 Ballin'” on this new bump which Wale released yesterday, followed by a post from yours truly. Guess this one ended up making the final cut of my #WeekInRaps after all. Must say I found this one to be a straight jam to bump to on our nights out for this upcoming weekend. Enjoy y’all.

Young Jeezy “R.I.P.” f/ 2 Chainz

 

It’s two weeks in a row for Tity. This week we catch 2 Chainz on a feature for one of Young Jeezy’s latest records, “R.I.P.,” which comes off snowman’s recent collection, It’s Tha World. Club swag written all over this one. Figured it was fitting. Also I don’t hate it as much as I do many other club anthems.

Pill “Money Bag” f/ Juicy J

 

Two of my favorite MC’s out here collaborate for a new jam entitled, “Money Bags.” Both Pill and Juicy J deliver hot verses on this one, making it a certified banger and sure in feature on this week’s edition of my #WeekInRaps. What’chall think and Who’s fuggin’ with this one? I’m jammin’ over here.

Red Cafe “Loaded” f/ Fabolous & Trey Songz

 

Can’t really say I’m all that in tune with Trey’s rappin’ anymore. I used to think he was decent at one point, then well I guess….I woke up. His feature on this new Red Cafe however wasn’t all that bad. I was a bit surprised actually that he came with it the way he did. For sure a strong feature to complement two dope verses from Red Cafe and Fabolous. Who agrees with me…who don’t? Chime in!

Alex Wiley “Something To Say” f/ Lil Nikk N9ne

 

The Hippie Sabotage production duo is back with another #WeekInRaps appearance. This time it’s for their production contribution to Alex Wiley’s latest release “Something To Say,” which features a killer guest verse from Chicago’s own Lil Nikk N9ne. That’s two for two from the young up and coming beat makers. If you recall HS was featured on Calez’s “B.S.O.A.T.,” which made it as the top feature on my first ever edition of #WeekInRaps. Got to say I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more from the duo as well as these young rappers featured here. Look for Alex’s #ClubWiley to drop within the oncoming weeks. Enjoy y’all! 

Dave Coresh “LovE & MonEy” f/ Gatz & Chuck L.I.

 

This gotta be the illest shit I’ve heard from Dave Coresh in a while. A young Chicago rapper who’s been a bit inconsistent over the past few years, but that’s not to take away from homie’s talent. The kid can rap. We know that. But I know I and I’m sure several others would love to see a story unfold. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens. In the mean time grab this record, “LovE & MonEy,” which features Gatz and Chuck L.I. on the track. A Jam coming off THC & Record.Breakers’ collaborative compilation entitled, E.L.E.. Look for the project to feature tracks from Tyler The Creator, Kid Cudi, The Boy Illinois, and more!

Hope y’all messin’ with my top choices in raps this week. Take these and enjoy yourself a great weekend out. But before you go though…be sure to grab the records below which stand as honorable mentions for this week’s #WeekInRaps. Happy Friday homies. 

Pavy “Hate Bein’ Sober (RMX)”

  

Grade Aplus “Turnt ^” f/ Weasel Sims
