A tribute to a Hip-Hop legend
Late night ramblin’
No words, just enjoy the music…
The track featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller erupted on YouTube on Friday 16th June. The instrumental oozes hella Spanish vibes which is further exaggerated in the visuals and the music video. Can we talk about Rihanna’s style too though. Issa summer look! I’m seeing Spanish flamenco dancer but I’m also seeing ghetto fashion princess. The whole fit is dope and fits the overall theme of the song. The song is a refreshing and modern take of Maria Maria, the 90s hit by Santana featuring The Product G&B.
So, I asked my brother (an avid fan of TDE) the other day who SiR is and he looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language. “Sir?” he repeated. I responded saying “yeah SiR, the Inglewood artist from TDE”.
A light read
It’s literally 4:30am and I stumbled on a group that I first found out about when I was back in sixth form. The Stuyvesants. It’s certainly been a while since I’ve listened to them, but they are as dope as they come.
This 90s-hip-hop sensation originally comprised of Titus Glover (deceased) who went by the stage name Baatin, J Dilla (deceased) formally known as James Dewitt Yancey, Illa J also known as James Derek Yancey, Young RJ, T3 and Elzhi.
