Having recently emerged as the new King of Twitter, 50 Cent decided to try the whole rapping thing again add a verse to Cee-Lo’s ‘controversial’ summer anthem. Even without the feature, the song went viral within hours, and is now approaching four million views. But as one half of the group Gnarls Barkley, Cee-Lo is certainly no stranger to hit records. Be on the lookout for his next album, The Lady Killer. Oh, and if you like parodies, this one is for you: Cee-Lo x The Shawshank Redemption.
His last remix didn’t go over too well with some people, but that didn’t stop Ye from moving forward with his next piece. It’s a star-studded lineup, but forget about Officer Ricky & Bon Iver, and you can even ignore Hov on this one. Kanye starts off the track with a strong verse (“Have you ever had sex with a pharaohhhhh? I put the pussy in a sarcophagus!“), but even he was outshined by the Ms. Nicki Minaj. In a recent interview with Angie Martinez, had this to say about Nicki:
“[she has] the most potential out of everyone to be the number two rapper of all time”
Well, she definitely didn’t let him down on this one.
Don’t let the poor video quality fool you: this track straight up is a banger, and the concept of the video isn’t that bad either. With his hard hitting punchlines and a knack for picking great beats, he has some serious potential. I also had the opportunity to interview Dave Coresh a few months ago, and I was very impressed by the quick witted Chicago emcee. Since a successful drop of his Formal Introduction Mixtape, he has been locked away working on his next project, so much so that I was unable to reach him to say a few words for this post. But at the end of the day, it’s Dave Coresh, remember the name.
