Drums Drums Drums-[Travis Barker]&[Wiz Khalifa]

Travis Barker is an undeniable legend in every sense of the word. He has been a trail blazer who has paved the way for a myriad of artists and its so cool to see the veteran still blessing us with music time and time again. Today, Travis is making another appearance on our page for the release of his brand new song titled, “Drums Drums Drums”. You really can’t turn on a Travis Barker song and expect anything less than pure excellence. The Blink-182 drummer has been doing this for a long time and its almost as if everything he touches turns to gold. From a production standpoint, “Drums Drums Drums” truly breathes magnificence. The vibe created by this one is perfect for blasting your speakers at full volume and cruising down the street. To make this track even better is that Travis enlisted help from another legend…the one and only Wiz Khalifa. Just like Travis, you know what to expect from Wiz. When two hall of famers link up on a track like this, its impossible not to lose your mind, which is what I’ve been doing since listening to the track for the first time this morning. It’s …

A Conversation With TM88: The Origin of 808 Mafia, Working With Lil Uzi Vert on “P2”, Becoming a Producer Turned Artist and More

Photo Credit: Sem Robert Music creation is not something that is often handled alone. By now, we are all aware of the many elements needed in order for a song to come to fruition. We have the many words and flows provided by the songwriter, the amazing mixes and mastering provided by the engineers, and we have the meat and potatoes of the song, the beats-provided by the producers. There has always been an ongoing debate over which role holds the most weight, and which role is more important than the other. A fair amount of those believe that all roles are equally as important, which is very true to a certain point. However, many believe that the overall feel and vibe of the song is carried from the production. Yes, lyrics are strong enough to speak volumes–but production is powerful to move mountains. One producer in mind that has made a strong footprint in the industry, and blown many speakers in the process, would be none other than the legendary TM88. Regardless if you have heard his voice, or even seen what he looks like–chances are, your favorite rapper has made a record to one of his beats. With …

Hate Bein’ Sober- [Chief Keef] ft. [50 Cent] & [Wiz Khalifa]

Chief Keef took the world by storm after releasing Finally Rich. This project changed the way artists approached their music creation, and it set a precedent for an entirely new generation of Rap. Comprised of absolute hits, I could listen to this album front to back without any skips, thoroughly enjoying every single song, and trust me, I’ve done this hundreds of times at this point. Some tracks were memoirs of previous experiences while others glorified his newfound success in the music industry, but no matter what the subject matter consisted of, it was beyond clear that Chief Keef was a star in every sense of the word. While his career might’ve peaked at that point in the opinions of some people, he has continued on to release a plethora of projects every year since. Even if none of them are cohesively as incredible as his debut album, there are gems left and right all throughout his extensive discography. Whether you like it or not, Keef changed the world of Rap music as we know it today with this album and it’ll go down in Rap history without a doubt in my mind. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Why …

Get Me Lit – [P-Lo]

In the current state of music, artists find their own ways of getting into rapping. For Bay Area talent P-Lo, he got his start through producing. His uncharacteristic West Coast style of production caught the ear of some major names in the Rap world including Yo Gotti, Wiz Khalifa, E-40, and G-Eazy, among others who he created hits with. Although producing is what helped him get his foot in the door, he has since taken a liking to actual hopping on his songs and spitting some bars. It’s abundantly evident that this was a smart decision considering he already knows the ins and outs of the beats he’s on, so he can definitely elevate his talents and create all-out hits. Despite being locked in quarantine like the rest of us, he wanted to use his time effectively and productively, so he decided to drop off a new track entitled “Get Me Lit”. P-Lo uses speaker busting 808s, scratchy synths, and other West Coast reminiscent sounds to pave the way for this dance anthem. His voice is unique and juxtaposes the instrumental in such an interesting fashion. Although the beat is hyphy and bops all the way through, P’s delivery is …

10 Years Later: Revisit the Classic Mixtape ‘Kush & OJ’ by Wiz Khalifa

Timeless (adj.) “Not affected by the passage of time or changes in fashion”. Classic (adj.) “Judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind”. As many people will say, it is believed that many artists put out their best bodies of work before they are thrusted into the major spotlight. This is said to be true because the art comes from one place and one place only; from within. No pressures from the label, no pressure from fans, no pressure from first-week-sales projections, just pure artistry at it’s finest. The ability to have the freedom of releasing whatever art you want, whenever you want is one of the purest joys that an artist can have. For Wiz Khalifa, it goes without saying that many fans of his can all come to a natural agreement that his best body of work was his mixtape, Kush & OJ. The year is 2010, and I am nearing the end of my Junior year in high school. Having already been a fan of Wiz Khalifa for  about a year at this point, I had already knew at what capacity he would be able to deliver in. However, …

Over it- [Yung Pinch] ft. [Wiz Khalifa]

Yung Pinch is one of my all-time favorite up and comers by far. His care-free attitude, tropical vibes and wavy style are just a few things that draw me to his music, and when I saw that he recruited a name as legendary as Wiz Khalifa for a track, I had to tune in. “Over it” is a bit of a twist on classic Pinch heartbreak songs, with a party-like feel that comes along with hints of sorrow. It opens up with different vocal effects than we’re used to hearing from the Huntington Beach native, possessing a spacy and somewhat airy sound. Along with these effects, he sounds much more emotional than he has in the past, showing off a more punchy and hostile delivery that gives the idea that he’s thinking about whoever wronged him at the very moment he was recording. The lyrics aren’t particularly spectacular by any means, but Yung Pinch is known for bringing the vibes to songs and not necessarily the wordplay. Basically, it sounds like he’s grieving something that happened to him and is looking forward to partying with his friends to forget the heartbreak. Wiz comes in for a short but sweet second …

Hello – [Hoodrich Pablo Juan]

Fresh off the release of his recent project DMV (Dope Money Violence) last month which features household names like Gucci Mane and Wiz Khalifa, Hoodrich Pablo Juan doesn’t want to slow up at all. Even though his latest offering “Hello” isn’t as impressive as some of the tracks on the aforementioned tape, it’s still noteworthy considering it shows how much work the Atlanta rapper continuously puts in. One of the most recognizable parts of his music is his deep voice, which is obviously in full effect for this song. Although this is the case, it’s very laid back rather than energetic like it can be at times, but his ad libs make up for the lack of liveliness. I see where he was going with this, though, because the production is also pretty simple and even underwhelming at times, so his lyrics are easily deciphered and they’re pretty much the main focal point of this song. His delivery is also pretty consistent throughout as he uses a cadence that’s effective and entertaining, so he doesn’t really need to switch it up too often. It doesn’t look like Hoodrich Pablo Juan is slowing down anytime soon which is a great thing …

House Money – [Max B]

THE WAVE IS BACK! The long-awaited return to music from Max B is finally upon us and it could not have come at a better time. The Wave God himself has been incarcerated this entire decade and the rap game has been missing him dearly. As the next decade creeps up we are edging closer to an icon being back to reclaim his place in the industry. If Gucci Mane’s glow up after his stint in prison was something to behold then what Max Biggavelli is about to do will be talked about for generations to come. Releasing a feature-heavy 7 song EP is about the smartest thing Max B could do leading up to his freedom. The roster on House Money is heavy, with features coming from French Montanna, Jadakiss, A Boogie, Wiz Khalifa, Cam’ron, Dave East, and A$AP Ferg all bring an insane level of energy for an artist well respected by his peers. The highlight of this incredible project comes on the intro track “Take My Time” which is a classic Max B cut, instantly reminding me how big his impact will be when he is able to go full throttle. As we wait on more news on the …
