Lil’ Wayne feat. Drake – Grindin

Lil_Wayne-Grindin-feat-Drake

Grindin” is a Banger of a Track and promotional single from American rapper Lil’ Wayne. It also features Young Money Canadian recording artist, rapper, songwriter, and actor Drake.

The Banger of a Track was Produced By: Boi-1da & Vinylz.

It is uncertain where this track will make it’s debut. Whether or not it will make Lil’ Wayne’s upcoming highly anticipated studio album, Tha Carter V – or placed on another work of Drake’s albums or a Young Money compilation.Either way, this is one HOT track where the bass is deep and low, and the auto-tune goes somewhere it hasn’t gone before.

Does anybody else think that particularly in this song and verses, Lil’ Wayne is sounding a little bit like his partner in crime (no not Birdman), but – Young Thug in this track, and Drake too??

Eminem – Not Afraid

Not Afraid” is the first single from American rapper Eminem‘s seventh studio album Recovery. The single was produced by Boi-1da. It debuted on April 29, 2010 on Shade 45. Unlike all his previous first album singles “My Name Is”, “The Real Slim Shady”, “Without Me”, “Just Lose It” and “We Made You”, this song is not a comedy hip hop song, instead has much more deep and meaningful lyrics.

In the song, described as “uplifting” by manager Paul Rosenberg, Eminem tells of how he has tried to overcome the troubles in his life from the past few years, mainly his drug addiction and rehabilitation. He also expresses that his last album, Relapse, wasn’t up to his standards. In the song, he promises he will never leave again and now only has his daughters and his music to focus on.” The beat was originally given to Maino and released under the title “Survival of the Fittest”, as a single for his sophomore album, but it didn’t have the piano sounds on the chorses.
