#TBT: DJ Khaled – We Takin Over

by .


“I am the beast/ Feed me rappers or feed me beats…”

The man. The myth. The legend. The year was 2007. Outside of Florida and Louisiana, little was known of DJ Khaled and exactly what his profession was besides being a radio personality. But what the world did know was that his associates and himself were “the best”. Fresh off of a critically acclaimed debut album, Khaled orchestrated a star packed compilation that forever changed the way that artist collaborate. His infamous persistent ad-libbing setting the match for his upcoming fame barely compares to the roster that he effortlessly puts together every time his name is mentioned.

The release of his first single, “We Takin Over” from his second album “We The Best” was the moment that the masses began to realize the power that DJ Khaled truly had. Directed by Miami’s Gil Green, not only did he bring together Akon, T.I., Fat Joe, Rick Ross, Birdman, and the greatest version of Lil Wayne the world has ever seen. But also continuing to push Florida’s music culture to the edge and beyond with the in state production of the track and the cinema-like music video, that’s extravagant take on Biggie’s legendary “Hypnotize” video.

Although he doesn’t contribute to the music how people expect a title artist to, Khaled has done more with Florida artist on his albums than majority of headlining sunshine state musicians. Continuously featuring acts like Rick Ross, Pitbull, Trick Daddy, Plies, T-Pain, Flo Rida, Brisco, Trina, The Runners, and Cool & Dre. One thing that you cannot say is that DJ Khaled is not a leader of Florida’s music scene and you cannot forget the untouchable hits that he pulled out of his playbook.

Just know that soon he’s due for another one… And another one… And another one…

fgeburgundy – Dante’s Inferno (EP)

by .

PRODUCERS: Cormil, Max.Beats, Drago, The Boy, Prophet, Jcaspersen & Taylor Beats
STREAM: via iTunes

The melodically mythical being that’s on a mission to captivate all of Florida has appeared once more before the summer’s end. This time dropping off Dante’s Inferno, a full body of work that acts as a teaser to what feels like something bigger in the near future. fgeburgundy relentlessly tears apart the music game with merely nine, yet expressive and weighty tracks.

A vague presence all throughout the project, due to the message/theme behind the project. fgeburgundy is the perfectionist of surreal rap and soul. Dante’s Inferno is like “Jacob’s Ladder” put to rhyme and blues. Vivid tales of love lost, turmoil, confusion and triumph. Like a bizarre hybrid of rap, falsetto notes and a psychological thriller flick. This could REALLY be the score to something of that description!

For this very situation, Burgundy called upon the perfect composers for Dante’s Inferno. Producers such as Cormil, Max.Beats, Drago, The Boy, Prophet, Jcaspersen and Taylor Beats all giving that dark, dreamlike ambiance to the project, each in their own style and respect to the star artist.

The introduction is a short, yet intense experience, titled “Intro To Inferno”. The latter called “Dante’s Inferno” a distressing track that is as heavy and powerful as it’s title. “Gotham” is a brash hitting psalm. “Again (Go)” a mourning track of a past love. With only seven tracks and all are as hard as the last, it’s impossible pick and pull out this pot. It’ll be best for you to do as we say and play Dante’s Inferno in it’s entirety. Back to back to back to back.

Today is no day different from any other day when we tell you to keep your eyes and ears locked onto someone that we feature. Dante’s Inferno is a poignant masterpiece by fgeburgundy. Don’t just use the links above to stream this project, be sure to share buttons it as well and gift as many people as possible with this great and emotion packed music.

Officially a “Rappa Ternt Sanga”. Video cameos by Akon, Sleepy Brown, Bone Crusher, Rasheeda, and Midget Mac, the single cracked the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #8 and selling over a million copies.

Ultimately, the album went on to sell over 800,000 after a roller coaster ride on the charts, peaking at #33. Following with an ode to shake junt performers, “I’m N Luv ( Wit A Stripper), and the ultimate mack remix right after. T-Pain began a constant moving career, from production to countless features. Heavily active on the charts and at award shows. Snagging a couple of Grammy’s while he was at it.

But we are here to remember that this is the video that solidified him as a generational legend, and this track will forever remain a landmark in our lives as Floridians.

After thousands gathered and millions mourned the physical loss of an artistic legend, XXXTentacion, a beam of light came rushing down from Nirvana in the shape of a visual. With his first posthumous release, XXXTentacion gave us all another opportunity to delve in his mind, with the official video for “SAD!”, the #1 song in the country at the moment. The 20 year old musician delivered the idea himself, as he has a funeral for his former self and ultimately going toe to toe with his past demon in order to change for the better. As XXXTentacion battles with himself, he reassures all watchers that this fight is a fight that not only we all have to go through, but one that we all can win. In such a compact amount of time, XXXTentacion has taught many of us that even when our vessel becomes incapacitated, the light inside of us that we can provide will never burn out.
