Statik Selektah: What Goes Around
whatgoesaround-600x600

This producer from the Mass continues to bust his ass to preserve the essence of traditional East Coast hip-hop. WGA may be Statik’s finest complete project packed with a gang of MCs from new jacks like Joey Badass to an unlisted appearance from veteran Kool Keith. Hard not to head nod to this one.—YN

DJ Khaled “Hold You Down”

You’d have to be a big dummy to not understand at this point how serious DJ Khaled is about his videos. Still he outdoes himself here in the scene where he keeps feeding his shortie stacks of greenbacks. We’re grateful for all the laughs this provides. Ha!—YN

Nicki Minaj “Anaconda”

Onika provides a pervert’s delight as she celebrates her ample back side in this soft porn visual. Can’t believe Nick flipped Sir Mix-A-Lot’s classic into a modern day hit. But you probably couldn’t tell cause you was watching this shit with the sound off. Ha!—YN

Another Chicago rapper on the rise is Coke Boy Lil Durk. He pours his impassioned street perspective into his latest installment of Signed To The Streets. But it’s all not dark drill, guest Young Thug brings punch to “Party” and Durk even effectively uses autotune on songs like “Live It Up”. As his upcoming Def Jam debut states remember his name.—YN
