Meyhem Lauren featuring Roc Marciano – ‘Animal Science’

I’m jumping out the window hardbody this week (no Ron Browz and DEFINITELY no Erick Sermon). If you got some shit going down and you got free alcohol for the kid make sure you holla at me. I’m not talking that bullshit Pabst Blue Ribbon either my niggas. I want that top shelf if you want me at your event. I could sit in my own damn house and drink malt liquor or bumwines by my damn self.

Last night was the Kid Cudi listening session. I like his album but it is so not anything that most heads are ready to hear. I feel like the music is a continuation of the 808′s sound without the autotune pitch correction on the vocals. It’s just as experimental though. There’s definitely some joints on there that you would feel familiar with (comfortable), but I don’t think Cudi wants niggas to feel comfortable. He has an artistic vision that wants to present and he does it. I’ll give you a drop on Cudi’s album in a day or so. Right now I’m focusing on the Raekwon listening event later on today.

Wu-Tang changes rap music for the better in the early mid nineties. Everything they represented from unity to beats to the most vicious rhymes ever put into a mic device is what the Wu is all about. Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2 is getting the best reviews from all the people whose opinions I trust. I’m ready to become a stan again. Would I be retarded if I pulled out the Snow Beach pullover in 90 degree weather. The answer to that is hells yeah.

After Raekwon’s performance I have to bounce into Brooklyn and parlay with the kid Meyhem Lauren. He’s got a nice little party in Williamsburg with a few underground acts coming through to hang out and spit a song or two. What are y’all getting into? Come out to the Rockstar Bar in Williamsburg. Just say my name at the door to get the friends and family discount. And if you see a nigga in the streets shout me on the TWitter – @FYMTG (Fux Yo’ Meeting!)

    Everything I heard from that Cudi was that fire. But I could care less if no one else cops I’m getting my album. Just like with Slaughterhouse. Unfortunately.

    Damn dp, you make me really want to visit NY. Seems like there’s always some motherfucking shit to do…if ever I go, don’t be surprised if Grands comes to fux with you! Better yet, holler @ your boy whenever you’re coming to L.A., real shit. You know how to get in contact.

    Far as Cudi, I saw him perform a couple of times, & it’s way obvious that he’s not aiming for no dudes’ spots. Cudi’s making his own lane like a snow plow. Cats ain’t ready, although I’m sure he couldn’t care less. I’m still not sold, but I’m willing to listen. Is he considered Emo, or has he swerved into Trip-Hop?

    Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nothin’ Ta Fuck Wit!

    *Sidenote: I been fuxing with YouTube all day. You & Raf are some geniuses.*

    Grand$,
    That’s good looking homey. I was witj my Cali brother Meka (2dopeboyz) earlier tonite at the Cudi event and fam told me that L.A. didn’t really offer the scene we have here in NYC.

    If and when I do touch down on your side you have to promise to take me to the Filipino chicks hangout, or Korean chicks as it were. I wanna see if the kid can get more love than on this side.

    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grands

      Meka knows of what he speaks. The ignorance stagnates any type of real cultural functionality @ present time, i.e. niggas acting way too stupid these days. But summer’s almost over, ha!

      & hey, you’re an Internet Celeb. The Filipino/Koreans chicks will be giving you head AND a manicure before you leave L.A.X.

  • Sleepy Wonder

    I’m Still Not Sure What To Think Of Him But I’ll Probably Check The Album Out Since I Liked 808s & Heartbreak. I’ll Be Waiting For That Drop Dallas [II].

  • Master Cheef

    meyhem sounds nice with it. never heard him before, but that track is cool. however, the white bwoi in dat flick looks like kid rock’s and uncle cracker’s love child.

    KiD CuDi is the future and I’m just waiting for the day in about mid-September when dudes that are late run up to me like, “Yo, you hear that new Raekwon? It’s sick! I didn’t even know he had another album dropping.” I’ll just give them the crook eye (word to Slaughterhouse) and keep walking.

    My top 5 Albums period.
    1. Reasonable Doubt
    2.Illmatic
    3.Ready 2 Die
    4.36 Chambers
    5. Chronic

    I was born in 81 so my view skews towards the early to mid 90′s but Wu had it on lock until after Forever dropped and the momentum slowed up

    • http://Pierzy11@gmail.com Pierzy

      In my opinion, Forever was amazing…it really was ahead of its time. After that, when RZA’s Five Year Plan came to fruition and he fell back, yeah you’re right but I love that album.

      • Victor

        Wu Tang Forever is my fav wu LP. And i think alongside Life After it is the illest double hip hop album. I was born in 1990 so ive been digging in the past for a minute. Just got OC’s Jewelz alongside Slaughterhouse’s LP.

        • Worley

          That Jewelz album is a slept on classic. OC finally got his shot just when the Versace, Chanel rap was taking off. It’s a tragedy.

          co-sign on that o.c.

    Dammit if free (topshelf) alcohol don’t make any event worth goin and atleast checkin out…

    I do think that Kid Cudi CD is gonna go over a lot of people’s heads that just want cookie cutter shit. I like to see an artist choose their own lane though

  • http://www.justice.gov.za GO-Getta’

    Any1 wanna debate who got the best album so far based on leak tracks between OB4CL2 & B3?

    Does’nt Cudi “Make her say” sound a little bit 2 “Whatever u like by T.I. .St8 bitting if u ask me.

    “meyhem sounds nice with it. never heard him before, but that track is cool. however, the white bwoi in dat flick looks like kid rock’s and uncle cracker’s love child.”

    that’s j-love. he’s an underground mixtape dj in nyc. i only heard of him about 4,5 years ago myself tho. wu-tang fucks with him heavy. especially ghost and rae. i’m pretty sure that he’s in a group with meyhem, hence the picture.

    he claims on his tapes that he’s not white. he’s puerto rican or some shit. he says nigga every other word, literally, so i hope he isn’t.

    j-love can’t rap for shit either. if meyhem spits before him on a track, its always painful to hear what comes next. no flow whatsoever.

    on some real shit tho he must be a g. cuz ain’t no chubby, white boy lookin, wack rappin ass dj who walks around sayin nigga all day, gonna get so much love from the wu. check out his street savior series. there’s like 10 vol.s all hosted by wu members and real dudes like meyhem. if u fuck with ny hip-hop i suggest you download them street saviors.

      @ Hate

      J Love IS white. he admitted it in XXL a while back. he says it’s cool for him to say nigga all the time though cause Ghost said it was cool. and cause he’s “color blind” i don’t know if i agree with that but hey that’s there business. either way it goes i never heard him rap but his mixtapes are the shit. check out the Ghostface Hidden Darts series or any of his Best Of’s. straight fire!

    Mad props for repping authentic NY hip-hop like Meyhem Lauren, I always felt he was one of the illest associated of Thirstin Howell the 3rd (aka the polorecan). Man and that game records cover Thirstin has was almost as ill as EM and royce’s bad meets evil but I digress.

    • latino heat

      @ Avenger XL

      word. the Game girls / album covers were the shit. (no butterfly tattoo face.)

  • capcobra

    i think the hook could be better..the hookguy sounds like mic geronimo….other than that tho’ the “got stripes and rock solids” line stuck with me…good work.

    Damn DP I’m tryna hang too dawg whats good? Tony Grands is right about over here in LA, no welcoming to the culture at all; you gotta really search for it if you want it bad enough (and I’ve only been living out here for about 2 years so far). You making NY that place to be at right now!

    The only song I’ve heard from Kid Cudi is that Day and Nite track and thats it, haven’t really been checking for him though. No hate or anything just haven’t been up on it lately (plus my ears still going on the Slaughterhouse and ol school De La Soul at the moment; Stakes Is High).

    cudi to me after saying he was going retire and taking it back. i feel he is not built for the game once he hits another wall he might fall apart again. can’t invest my hard earned bucks into a quitter unless he make some classic shit. then he quits on top but i doubt cudi making a classic album.
