Friday Frenzy: Meek, Rozay, Dave East and Future Drop Bangers

What did we do to deserve all of this new music?

Future, Meek Mill, Dave East, and Rick Ross have all decided to bless hip-hop lovers. Three years after its release Future’s Beast Mode receives its highly anticipated follow up. The first installment features monster hits like Lay Up, No Basic, Peacoat, Real Sisters, and Forever Eva.” Beast Mode 2 is a surprise drop on the road to Future’s next studio album.
Keeping the same energy, Hendrix enlists Zaytoven for production.
After being convicted of violating probation (on shaky terms), Meek Mill is back. First with the release of his powerful single, Stay Woke featuring Miguel. Mill debuted the song at the 2018 BET Awards with a moving performance. It depicted the rough streets of Philadelphia, where Meek grew up. You can watch the performance by clicking the link above.
Since being home Meek has previewed beats and snippets via his Instagram page. Legends of the Summer, is another four piece combo Meek knock us out with. Each song distinctively different, he has a cut for the ladies, something for the club,  something for the streets, and a thought provoking peace meant to encourage change. Check it out below.
Last but not least, Philly’s cousin, Dave East, has dropped as well; TWICE. The Harlem rapper is known for his cleverly aligned freestyles and he does not disappoint. “I’m Good Cuz, Enjoy,” is a play on rapper Future’s latest social media debacle. Where he told an Instagram model “I’m good luv, enjoy” over text as she sat in her hotel room waiting for him. Instead of ending things with a woman, East is firing off shots at a peer. WHO, you ask?
Check it out above and let me know who to point the finger at in the comments.
East also collaborated with none other than Rick Ross on their new single, “Fresh Prince of Belaire.” The two rappers both have endorsement deals with the popular Rose brand. So why not combine forces and get more money. Am I right?
Listen to “Fresh Prince of Belaire” below and enjoy this Friday Frenzy of new music.

Dave East Releases Paranoia 2

East is baaaacckk, not that he ever left.

After releasing the precursor to P2 in August 17′,  Karma in November 17′ and crushing multiple features, Paranoia 2 is here.

Giving us classic Dave East flows, with a touch of something new. He brought G-Unit front runner Lloyd Banks back from his hiatus on Violent. East speaks on the highs and lows of success on Thank You and Corey. One of my favorites from P2 is What Made Me. This is the Harlem representer’s ode to Hip-Hop. He pays homage to Nas of course, Biggie, Hov, Tupac, DJ Whoo Kid, Irv Gotti, Fabolous, Noreaga, The Lox, 50 Cent, Too Short, and Pharrell. Philly friendly, East mentions Beanie Sigel and says #FreeMeek. East even collabs with Torey Lanez, Marsha Ambrosius, and Bino Rideux.
Another exigent feature is Mase’s influence. East says “When Big died Harlem World dropped and I swear I ain’t listen to nothin but Mase.” He even questions his exit from Hip-Hop on What Made Me. 
The P2 tour, yes the tour, kicks off Jan 18, 2018, get your tickets asap. They’re sure to sell out quickly.
P2 is available for streaming on iTunes and Spotify.


Kur is Repping for the Have Nots

‘Have Not’ is Kur’s latest musical effort. The 22 year-old rapper has been WORKING. The EP has all of eight songs and features some of the hottest producers in Philly. Maaly Raw, Don Cheese, and Infamous Rell have produced some of Kur’s crowd favorites. Songs such as No Trust ft Dave East, Right Now, and the namesake of  this entire project, Have Nots. Childhood friend and fellow Philly rapper, Chynna Rogers assists Kur on one of my favorite tracks, Razor. The sh*t gets you amped! Chynna delivers a cut throat chorus with lyrics like



The A$AP Mob’s first lady takes no prisoners.
Kur also enlisted Coop Poppy and Lihtz Kamraz. One thing we know about Kur is that he has a core (lol) peer team that he prefers to work with. Artists who vibe well with his music.
Be on the lookout for his debut studio album, Shakur, set to release in November 2016.


Listen to ‘Have Not’ exclusively on the My Mixtapez App available on the App Store and Google Play.
