I joked on Twitter about not giving a single dingleberry-sized shit about anything to do with Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Big Scene’s “Control,” unless, of course, RiFF RaFF had something fly to say in response. Well, I haven’t heard anything from the Neon Icon as of yet, but what did cross my feed today was some new rhymes from the one and only Breeze Brewin. Apparently Breeze heard the Juggaknot name in Kendrick’s verse and took it as an open invitation to flip some slick lyrics over the No I.D. production:
This guy is so good.
MAY 30 on AMAZON.com:
Lynyrd Skynyrd – Nuthin’ Fancy, CD, new, $4.99, free shipping: Although I’d probably rank the first three Skynyrd albums in their chronological order (which is exactly how I’ve bought them), Nuthin’ Fancy has some really fantastic tunes — “Whiskey Rock-A-Roller” being one of my favorites of the trio of long-players. LS has some deep cuts and none of the shit-ton of greatest hits collections I’ve seen in stores can hold a candle to owning even just these three albums.
Two more Ronnie Van Zant’s to go, them I’m complete. Creek that.
Qwel & Maker – Beautiful Raw, CD, new, $13.69, free shipping: I hate when I can’t grab an album like this on its release date, but Newbury Comics never carries any G4 releases. So here I am. Complaining. Blogging about the tough life and internet shopping.
Anyway, Beautiful Raw is exactly what we’ve all come to expect from the frequent collaborators: Dope. Next to The Harvest — Q&M’s shining achievement regarding their career as a duo, as well as in their separate endeavours – I’d say this album is the finest collective effort from the Windy City hip-hoppers.
