First we had some new Blu, then new Co$$, so now it’s only right we hit you off with some new Sene. Here goes a track that didn’t make it onto his Reality Bites project. Recorded during a two month period of sobriety upon his return to Brooklyn, before inevitably falling back into a box of swishers.
Brand new shit from the homie Co$$. Produced by The Soul Academy; off his upcoming album, Before I Awoke.
I do not want heads to get the wrong idea and think my whole M.O. is constantly questioning the existence of a higher power, my content most definitely varies..I’m in no way making these songs purely for controversy, when I made NO ALLAH I had no idea it would get the response it did, I make music organically, not with some shallow hidden agenda..I wrote this song before I recorded NO ALLAH(apologies if that song offended anyone, if it did, bump it again, maybe you’ll form a new perspective), and the two songs are meant to play off each other, one making a statement(NO Allah), the other asking questions(Scriptures), and neither are a proclamation of atheism, so please do not misunderstand, I’m merely asking questions…My intent is not to make you guys feel disrespected, but to inspire you to think beyond your own personal truth…Thanx for taking the time to listen…Love, Respect, Co$$.
In recent months, I have collaborated with a lot your favorite artists (Shawn Chrystopher, ADD-2, Charles Hamilton, XV, Nero, Show Tufli, ESSO, QuEST, El Prez, Frank Ramz, S-Preme + More…). I have compiled songs from different projects and leaks into one body of work, also threw in an unreleased song I did with Charles Hamilton called “Reset”. Enjoy these songs over the weekend, I will be releasing the instrumentals early next week (along with a few bonus instrumentals).
A few weeks back, DJ Drama made a tweet alluding toward a project between The-Dream and himself, which was also mentioned in this XXL interview, but at best, Drama is “meh” when coming through with his announcements. Personal opinions aside, it looks like the project is moving forward as we finally have the official artwork for said mixtape, as seen above. Props to BoBo. Update: Added the tracklisting which you can find below. Doesn’t look very promising.
In today’s episode of Slang Editorial I discuss how prison and rap go hand-in-hand like peanut butter and jelly.
Big Sean is a hugger. At least when it comes to the ladies, he is. But you would already know that if you’re one of the millions of fans that subscribe to “U Know Big Sean.” You should also know that this rapper has more rewind worthy witty flows than a little bit. Hand picked by Kanye West himself, you couldn’t script a better story on being discovered.
With countless mixtapes, much media coverage, and a fervent fan base; all that’s missing is the debut LP. Honey caught up with the soon to be superstar, on the eve of his album release. Big Sean spoke candidly about Kanye West, Pharrell, and something special for the ladies. – Honey.
