Whip Game Whitey, “Best Kept Secret” (2013) Best Kept Secret
rap-does-gogo is usually better the more loose n open, for example I’ve replayed this maybe fifteen times in a row and am still not convinced those first four bars are actually the hook, hence I fuck with this song.
Judging by the view and his fedora, Glocworld and his guest could be anywhere from Habana to the Harbor. You don’t ask Jay how he got in to Cuba and you don’t ask Glocworld how he paid for this room. It kindas got that strip synthy Weeknd-type thing goin on in the back s/o the ladies but the button-mashing that pops in and out, that 8-bit glitch has been my shit lately.
wat does molly even do, like a world autotune filter or kinda make colors give off sound will it make this song more in my ear can it go further? will i understand what “I got a bitch thats 22 but she suck like she 96” means?
Not as catchy a hook as “Got Dat Work” — “I got that work I got that work I got that work I got that work/got that work I got that work I got that work I got that work/I got that work (work) I got that work (work)/ I got that work (work) I got that work/got that work I got that work I got that work I got that work/ got that work I got that work I got that work I got that work/ (work) I got that work (work) I got that work (work)/ I got that work (work) I got that work” — but it goes. #FreeLilGrim
I f/w Chris Richards the long way but its pretty obvious the WaPo piece interviewing DC musicians on why they tend to leave DC as their careers move forward could use a couple extra voices. For starters, Trel just recently moved out to LA — around the same time as Tabi Bonney actually — and Oddisee, who was interviewed by the Washington Post, already lives up in Brooklyn. Wale moved up to NY early in his career IIRC but who knows where he’s at now. UGO was recording some classic records when he was a DC dude back in 92, but spend a couple months in Canada some years down the road and all of a sudden he’s tweeting with Justin Bieber and Drake and recording songs with Sean Kingston.
Anyways, long story short, I heard the Big Guwop was fukkin with the Gleesh so I hit Gleesh up to find out if he’s gonna be leaving us soon. He told me FUKK DAT and dropped this shitbag record produced by Zaytoven. ZAYTOVEN.
