Hometown Glory – FRNZ

😩

http://www.theargus.co.uk/news/11716062.Families_of_men_swept_out_to_sea_on_Brighton_beach_pay_tribute/

I haven’t hung with Freddie in many years, and back in the college days he was my best friend’s best friend. Many a summer’s afternoon was spent chilling in whatever park was closest to us bunking off all dayyy just chattin shit and listening to music. Freddie was part of the group of sparks that ignited my love for Hip Hop, music and peaceful living.

I’ve bumped into him a few times over the years and always chatted for absolutely ages. He loved a good catch up and was always super engaged in all kinds of people and ideas. We compared notes on living with partners (his was always glowing
<3) and bullshitted about those careless days when all we were dodging was shit from teachers or parents.

I am making his music part of my regular rotation, and would love for as many people as possible to hear Freddie’s fruit of labour.

An absolute tragedy that one of the good ones was taken far too early.

My deepest sympathies and all of my love to the families.

J Dee has found his right hand man up there!

My saddest sympathies are also with Dan’s family and friends. Far too tragic.

Song of the Day! – Chris Brown + Kendrick – Autumn Leaves

http://2dopeboyz.com/2014/09/10/chris-brown-autumn-leaves-kendrick-lamar/

Yes, despite my feelings towards this supposed reformed character, I love this song. Mostly because of Kendrick who kills it on his verse….obv.

This does not mean I am excited for his new album drop, rather intrigued at who is going to pop up on the album.

I STILL don’t get why it is ok for him to be in my face all the time.

‘These Hoes aint Loyal’ is hardly a mark of redemption…

All this being said, I still must have played this track 100 times since discovering it 48hours ago.

Song / Album of the day – Chance The Rapper ACIDRAP

I.Love.this.Album

Completely random stumble on youtube and I don’t think I could ever listen to it not as a whole piece! 

After it’s discovery last night, I am already on my 3rd listen. 

It feels quite Kanye College Dropout – Thank god! I have missed this sub genre of Hip Hop SO much, Go Chance, you got a fan in me! Between all the beautiful vocal, brass, synth AND bass arrangements – with Chance himself citing Ye his biggest influence it is no wonder the intro is directly lifted from one of Kanye’s quieter drops intro ‘Freshman Adjustment’. Why not have a little knowledge flex on your intro? Bonus –  Twister also pops up a few tracks in! 

ACIDRAP has lots of techy Frank Ocean synth moments, it also is not entirely far away from Pharoahe Monch’s Desire album, finishing with some faint biggie notes lingering. It is no wonder i am L-L-Loving it!

Nice Nice Nice NICE! 

I have got my eyes firmly placed on Chance and am looking forward to hearing lots more shiz. 

Who said Hip Hop was dead?

I know Nas man, I hear ya, but you gotta keep the faith!
