After the jump, a couple of Kanye-related tracks, a Cam’ron tribute to a fallen soldier, Sway, Grafh and a posse cut which features 3 heavy hitting New York rappers.
Oh and a collaboration between Jadakiss and Uncle Murda. In retrospect a pretty New York influenced post here, but would you expect any less from me?
DJ Webstar – Mo Bottles ft. Maino, Styles P & Sheek Louch
Kicking off this post with three rappers who are well known for their street credibility and gun-toting rhymes. Surprisingly this is a track about poppin’ bottles in a club, decent song too, with a likeable hook.
Cam’ron – Tribute To Hud 6
Cam’ron’s lifelong friend, Huddy 6, was tragically killed in a car accident recently and Cam’ron has made a tribute for him. Over Eminem and Lil’ Wayne’s brilliant track, No Love. Cam’ron raps about some of the great memories he has of the man, whilst also lashing out at Mase (also a supposedly life long friend of Huddy as well as Cam’ron himself) for not attending the funeral, “Where Betha at? I’m like F*** Mase”.
G.O.O.D. Music – BET Awards Cypher 2010
A CDQ version of the G.O.O.D Music cypher we were blessed with at the BET awards. With cyphers from Kanye, Pusha T, Big Sean, Common and CyHi Da Prynce.
Kanye West – Power/All Of The Lights (Funk Doc mix)
Taken from Kanye’s recent mini-movie, Runaway, here’s the audio for this awesome hybrid of a song, courtesy of Funk Doc. Looking forward to All Of The Lights to drop for reals, sounds like an amazing track.
Sway – Sway Over? (Game Over freeystyle)
Sway goes in on an all star remix by Tinchy, Tinie Tempah and many other of the biggest names the UK scene has to offer (not posted on OTU, as there’s no CDQ version available as of yet, but have patience folks!). Sway shows us why he should have been on the original remix and absolutely tears this apart.
Grafh – G6 (remix)
Nice club track here by Grafh, which isn’t something you’d normally associate with him. One for the car, with its dance influenced production.
Uncle Murda – They Don’t Know Me ft. Jadakiss
Uncle Murda and Jadakiss are another two well esteemed New York names, and they bring us a track that’s very much dripped in New York culture. The production, the simplified hook, and the lyrics all have that classic East Coast sound in abundance and I shall certainly be playing this a lot.
