In anticipation for his new mixtape, Trap God (which comes out in like, 3 hours), Mr Gucci Mane dropped a new video today with Future in it (I still am not a huge fan of Future, but he got a couple jams I guess).
Very Regal, very majestic!
He also released a Young Jeezy diss video/song a week or so ago that provided me with this screenshot (found here):
Andrew Noz of Cocaine Blunts/TumblinErb (and writer for music magazines when they need a serious rap guy) recently updated his chronology of Young Jeezy vs Gucci Mane rap/diss songs (rap-song disses? diss-raps? diss-songs? just "disses"?....) , in case you're interested (you should be). It's available here.
Mr Noz also has a column on Pitchfork.com and he wrote a very well researched, not to mention very well written, article about the current state of the record industry and/or internet as far as album sales and the potential success of a rap artist in this day and age...or something. Read it if you are an "actual rap fan" as he describes them (such as me LOL), a term which I enjoy. Here it is: http://pitchfork.com/features/hall-of-game/8969-record-sales-and-digital-scales/
In other news, friend of the Cobraswag and collaborator Thomas sent me this song he found while searching google today:
It has the odd combination of Lil B, Yung L, B-luv, and some dude named Yung F whom I've never heard of. I enjoy both Lil B and B-Luv. If you haven't checked out Db tha General and B-Luv's album "Tweaker Muzik" yet, do so! It's really good, one of the best rap albums of 2012 so far.
Aight, I gotta go to work, wearing my Swisha House tall T, of course. ACTUAL RAP FAN RIGHT HERE, BROS/BRAHS...
Edit: Forgot to mention that B-Luv was half of the duo (himself and one "Justin Lomax") that filmed Treal Tv 1 and 2. I accompanied Thomas a couple weeks ago on a trip to Vallejo where we had the opportunity to interview Mr. B-Luv. We hung out with him on the Vallejo waterfront, location of the cover shoot for The Click's "Down and Dirty". Here's the interview transcribed:
Props to Thomas and B-Luv for making this happen.
Fun Fact(s): Treal Tv 1 and 2 were filmed using a VX1000 (for all you skate nerds). And, supposedly, B-Luv is "co-creator of the thizzle dance"!!!
Aight I think I'm done now.
