Prime and OVO affiliate Jimmy Johnson releases his new single “Trust Me”, which feels like a wave that constantly crashes into background vocals and beats. The twitching backdrop of voices transform the sorrowful introduction which in turn increases the pace of the song. Hostile openings seem common throughout most of Jimmy Johnson‘s tracks; and as the song progresses there is an immediate dip into liquidous insanity, also know as autotune. “Trust Me” sounds like the nemesis of Jimmy‘s song “Winters End“, a warmer and less disturbed track. There is not a lot of variation in “Trust Me”, but the Canadian rapper sure does make me feel some type of way. Check it out for yourself above.
PRODUCER: Chill Go Hard
UPCOMING ALBUM: TBA
RELEASE DATE: 2015
Young Dolph‘s new single “Pulled Up” which features 2 Chainz and Juicy J, hits the audience with a seductive melody. The background seems hardcore and portrays a controlled image of buttloads of money and power. It’s the type of song that makes one want to get the gang together and make a movie. With a verse like “I’m laughing off the lot the way I’m laughing to the bank (ha-ha),” Juicy J’s feature is hilarious. Check it out for yourself above.
PURCHASE SINGLE: iTunes
From the soundtrack Get Hard, T.I. turns up the energy with the single “I Go Hard”. The overemphasized wording, simple rhymes, and extended vocals make this song a hit. The twerk vibe and the nice flow give the song a gym inspired theme. The fast and fun sound effects are perfect for any high energy flash mob.
PRODUCER: Chief Keef
UPCOMING ALBUM: Remeber My Name
RELEASE DATE: May 12
