Given that football season is almost here and it is Thursday, I thought it was most appropriate to share some musical dopeness with you guys this #TBT. I enjoyed this commercial a couple years ago, and even touched on it a bit in The Jamie Foxx Sprint commercial entry that I recently did. I love this commercial and the song was so catchy I originally downloaded it for my personal playlist. The commercial features Peyton and Eli Manning sporting bad wigs and 90's threads. Yet the track is so hot, I can't look a way! It is by far one of my favorite commercials ever. And Direct TV should run it every Football Season because it was that good. Check out F.O.Y.P below and have a good laugh at this #TBT. --M$C
Will Breeze and his clique of spitters came through and tell's you why once again it Don't "Take That Long" with the remix. Shot by BBros Filmz, the shots are clean and with Kreative Dreamz starting the remix off with his quick punchlines and setting the tone for the other rappers, how could they not come hard? Following not too far behind the hook, Will Breeze picks up the rock and does his thing. With plenty of hype and bars to match. The video is basic but is efficient. A park scene and white backdrops simplifies this video. Most likely in attempt to not take away from the verses that each rapper has I liked the basic layout. Someone new on my radar is Roc-Len his delivery is a bit weird to me but it's a good weird. I wasn't expecting his voice to sound like that, and I hope he isn't T-Paining it because I actually like his delivery with his voice. Two newer faces that I'll be watching for is P.O.G. I honestly wasn't expecting the two girls to be rappers. Initially I thought they were just video girls but was quickly sideswiped by P.O.G. I think they are ok but can definitely be better. Their delivery was weak and they could have come harder. But the sex appeal and the content is there so I definitely have my eyes on those two. The track was catchy and relatable. I am definitely on the look out for more from each contributor. Of course this is a Video Bomb with a rate so check out my rate for "Take That Long" Remix below as well as some dope stills from the video. --M$C
Favorite Line(s): Kreative Dreams: "I am her bread, she my butter, we drinking all night they say it's no cover"
Will Breeze: " It aint take that long to call the crew on my phone, we don't waste no time, no we dont never postpone."
Roc-Len: "Got your girl up in my car, and we living like some stars and no I'm not a rapper, I'm a fucking rap star."
P.O.G: "Independent grinder, he called me a shiner, I could get this bread by myself no co signer "
"And I'm still flexing, its this money I make, you been saying you getting money, well how long does it take?"
I'm sure we've all experienced a disgruntle, unhappy, fast food worker, Hell some of us might have been that co worker but this guys freestyle is so true and pretty funny. If you mad you should have not brought yourself in to work. Check out the video below that I discovered while on Facebook. I thought it was funny and sometimes you need something musically dope to relate to and laugh at. --M$C
Given that we are all more familiar with Jose Guapo "Running it Up" I was surprised with his remake of Tupac's classic song "Changes", Given the current police brutality epidemic that is plaguing our country currently, I thought it was smart and necessary of him to put this track out. He started it out verbatim to Tupac's version and then put his own spin on it. I applaud when rappers use their platforms to inform the people not to just talk about the cliche' money, cars, clothes, and hoes. He brought back something refreshing for the new generation that may not be familiar with Pac's version even though I find it hard to believe people aren't aware of the original origin. Check out Jose Guapo's visuals for "Changes' Below. --M$C
It's funny how this top 10 came about but basically I watched the video for "Body" by Jarule ft. Ashley Joi and was like well I use to love this song, when did it come out. Did a quick google search and found out it came out in 2007. So I started wondering what other fantastic songs and videos came out in 2007. Man I swear I love doing these #TBT because I get to recall where I was and and what I was doing when all these songs came out. It was senior year and I had probably the funkiest playlist ever for a 17 year old. I went straight down memory lane while compiling this list and while it may not have all the tunes that were poppin it has the ones I recall vividly singing, dancing and talking about. Plies definitely was hot then, Kanye was the Kanye I love and Soulja Boy came and showed people how to rape the internet game. I hope you guys appreciate the compilation and perhaps a few of these tracks were nostalgic for you guys as well. Of course I couldn't do a top 10 without 5 below so enjoy the 5 videos that to me were hot!
