Trae Compares Bars By Scarface & Bun B. His Ratings May Mess With 2 Texas Legends

Trae Tha Truth rates the bars of Scarface and Bun B in a specially-themed episode of Rate The Bars. The H-Town veteran compares excerpts from two O.G.’s widely considered to be ambassadors of Texas Rap to the rest of the world. In the ’80s and ’90s, Face and Bun Beata were trailblazers that created lanes for Trae to rise in the 2000s. Nonetheless, Trae is unafraid to be a bit critical of his past collaborators and symbolic big brothers.

Screwed Up Click alum and ABN member, emphasizes that beats as much as the hard grit of the bars are integral to his reasoning behind point choices. He feels at a disadvantage to be judging the bars off the page versus from an audio clip with the beat. He hands Brad Jordan a 3 for a guest verse on Rick Ross“Blessing In Disguise,” claiming that he relates to what is said, but suggesting that it takes a bit more to impress him.

Parsing out the lyrical intricacies between rappers, Trae admits reading the lyrics does not give them the same weight as if he heard them out loud. To that end, he doles out a 2 for Bun’s “Carter Outro IV” verse. Trae then goes on to award 2’s for both Bun B’s verse on Childish Gambino’s “RIP,” as well as Scarface’s lyrics on Beyoncé’s “I Been On (Remix).” Trae admits that the latter 2 comes from “giving people the benefit of the doubt.” The MC’s rating scale may be harsh in the eyes of some, who hold ‘Face and Bun sacred.

However, Trae does get a bit more generous. He gives his former Rap-A-Lot Records label-mate a 4 for “Guess Who’s Back,” a 3 for “Mac & Brad,” and a 3.5 for“Hand Of The Dead Body.” Trae tells the show’s producers that next time he wants to select the lyrics, claiming that the excerpts he was given do not sound good when read aloud. However, he gives Scarface’s iconic “Mind Playin’ Tricks On Me” bars a perfect 5. He recognizes the verse instantly.

He then hands Bun B a 4 for UGK’s “Diamonds And Wood,” as well as for “Murder.” Trae awards a 3 for “Money, H*es, And Power” and a 3.5 for the BDP homage “They Down With Us,” which appeared on Scarface’s The Last Of A Dying Breed LP. Trae says of some of the UGK selections that he would grade differently if he knew whether they were from before or after 1995. The Grand Hustle Records Vice President feels that the word choices should be considered.

In the total tally, Scarface edges out Bun B with a score of 20.5 to 18.5.

J. Cole Announces New Single ‘Middle Child’

The Real is coming back.

J. Cole has announced that his new single “Middle Child,” produced by T-Minus (Drake, Kendrick Lamar), will drop on Wednesday, Jan. 23, at 9 p.m. EST. Taking to social media, Cole shared the announcement along with the cover artwork.

It’s unclear if “Middle Child” will appear on the upcoming Dreamville compilation Revenge of the Dreamers III or a project of Cole’s own. He had previously announced plans for a mixtape called The Off-Season, which is expected to precede his next album The Fall Off.

Just last week, he wrapped the recording sessions for Revenge of the Dreamers III, which took place in Atlanta over the course of 10 days, with artists including T.I., DJ Khaled, Wale, and Swizz Beatz. Dreamville co-founder Ibrahim Hamad took to Instagram Stories to preview a never-before-heard Cole track that may appear on the project.

Prior to today’s announcement, Cole cleared out his Instagram account and posted what may be the lyrics to “Middle Child.” The since-deleted posts read “I’m counting my bullets,” “I’m loading my clips,” “I’m writing down names,” and “I’m making a list.”

“Middle Child” follows Cole’s album KOD, which debuted atop the Billboard 200 in April. In August, he dropped his “Album of the Year (Freestyle).”

Elzhi, Ras Kass, Large Professor & M-Dot Rap About How Reaganomics Failed Some Of Us

Some really good Hip-Hop music can be found on producer albums. From unknown beat-makers to those getting commercial placements, these compilations of tracks can often feature a wide variety of MCs that also range from underground to legend.

In this case, relative newcomer B Leafs has brought together two different eras of dope lyricists for a single titled “Reaganomics.” The spitters here include legends Ras Kass, Large Professor, and Elzhi, along with New England stalwart, M-Dot. All four kick bars about the impact that Ronald Reagan’s two terms in office as a President, and his trickle-down economic policy. The rhymes intersect with an organ loop and tight scratches by DJ Slipwax.

Large Professor Confirms That Main Source Is Making New Music

While each of the word-wielders has memorable lines on the subject matter, it’s El’s opening bombardment that deserves to be quoted most, “It all stem from Reaganomics / That’s breaking eggs to make some regular omelettes / Reporting overdoses by rich kids who beg for comics / While their parents marvel at the D.C. / Propaganda / With Nancy Reagan, L.A.’s top commander / That’s when Buster Douglas dropped Evander / Holyfield / There was the time that white America thought drugs only killed / Black folks…” The Detroit veteran breaks his rhymes up with impeccable timing to keep the flow interesting.

Ras Kass drops a verse next, blaming crack cocaine sales on the economic plan that pinched the poor. M-Dot follows with a great cadence. Large Professor, whose career started as Ronny was still in office, closes things out.

Elzhi & Conway Team Up On A Soul Classic & It’s Nothing Sweet (Audio)

Leafs’ dropped two single last Fall: “Been Waiting” featuring Termanology and Masta Ace, and “Flawless” featuring Raekwon, Skyzoo and REKS. Considering the line-ups, it goes without saying that both are worth a listen. B debut album The Horizon drops on January 29, 2019.

As a note, Elzhi has a special Elmatic concert planned in New Orleans, Louisiana on February 16.

In anticipation of his oft-delayed album Rap or Go to the League, the Atlanta kingpin warms fans up with his “Stay Woke Freestyle.”

Over the Buddah Bless production, which opens with a sample of INOJ’s “My Boo,” the “South Atlanta Don” brags about being “lit since age 15” and compares his bars to fentanyl.

He is now putting the finishing touches on Rap or Go to the League, which he first announced in February 2018. “I have a few samples that need clearing so I can drop this mudafuca album on Dey azzzz,” he wrote on Instagram. “Im rappin like juggernaut on that bih !! Can’t wait for you to hear the growth and direction !!! Im sure people don’t know what to expect anyway.”

Ja Rule Says Hulu Paid Billy McFarland for Fyre Festival Documentary

Ja Rule is in his feelings about Hulu and Netflix’s documentaries on the failed Fyre Festival that he helped promote in 2017.

The veteran rapper claims that Hulu compensated his former business partner and festival organizer, Billy McFarland, for his participation in Fyre Fraud. For those who don’t know why this is a big deal, it is unethical for participants to be paid for mediums like documentaries.

But according to Ja, in order for Hulu to get information from McFarland they had to pay him. “Hulu PAID BILLY!!!” Ja tweeted on Sunday morning (Jan. 20). “That money should’ve went to the Bahamian ppl Netflix PAID fuck Jerry the same guys that did the promo for the festival… ‍♂.” The Queens rapper also claims he has “receipts.”

Ja Rule added, “Because Billy was involved with BOTH he was trying to get them to pay him and Hulu bit… I heard they paid him somewhere btw 100 to 250… that money was supposed to go to the locals by LAW,” he posted.

The “Living It Up” rapper says he didn’t receive a dime for the failed festival that promised a luxurious weekend of fun on the Bahamas with A-List influencers. People paid thousands of dollars to stay in a tent that wasn’t even suitable for an elementary school student.

Just like the many of the people, Ja claims he is also a victim. “I too was hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, lead astray!!!” he add.
