Video: Desiigner – “Panda”

desiigner-kanye-west-panda-video

Panda” is the commercial debut single and music video by American rapper Desiigner.

The song premiered on December 15, 2015, and was released for digital download on the iTunes Store as a single on December 20, 2015, before being re-released on February 27, 2016. The song was written by Desiigner and its producer Menace.

“Panda” was heavily sampled by Desiigner’s fellow GOOD Music label-mate and founder Kanye West, for “Pt. 2”, a song on West’s seventh studio album The Life of Pablo, and inspired a number of remixes. The single topped the US Billboard Hot 100 at the end of April 2016.

The music video was directed by Paul Geusebroek and created alongside with Kanye West. An official video was released on May 10, 2016 via Desiigner’s official YouTube VEVO channel.

“Panda” is a trap song. The hook, layered over a Menace beat, was written about Desiigner’s affinity for the Rolls Royce Phantom. Explained by Desiigner, lyrically “the panda is the black X6 and the white X6. The black X6 look like a Phantom, the white X6 look like a panda. I’m just putting it in a greater way of how I say and the way I live.” Desiigner discovered the song’s beat on YouTube, which was produced by up-and-coming producer, Menace.

Video: Kirko Bangz, Fetty Wap – “Worry Bout It”

Kirko-Bangz-ft-Fetty-Wap-Worry-Bout-It-video

Worry Bout It” is the first promotional music video and lead single from American rapper, singer, and record producer Kirko Bangz‘ upcoming debut studio album, Bigger Than Me.

The Banger of a Track features American rapper Fetty Wap.

The video finds the two men living the good life up in the club, having a good time with much to see eye candy with all enough trippy lights. In the Isaac Yeoman-directed visual we also see aerial shots of Kirko’s native Houston. The music video premiered on September 2nd 2015 via REVOLT.

The track briefly and loosely samples Genuine‘s 90s hit single “Pony“. Listen for it, you’ll hear it! That ‘familiar sound’. 😉

Kirko Bangz and Fetty Wap make a song over a slowed-down sample of Ginuwine’s ’90s smash “Pony” to mix their melody-soaked verses. Bangz comes strong to make an ode to romantic honesty and For Wap’s uses his catchy style. They both use the perfect complement to the familiar instrumental, updating the classic hit for a modern time. [Source: Genius]

Glasses Malone, The Game, Kirko Bangz – ‘Too Hood’

too-hood-game-kirko-bangz-glasses-malone-single-cover-art

Too Hood” is the second released promotional single from American rapper and recording artist Glasses Malone‘s upcoming sophomore effort and upcoming second studio album, GlassHouse 2: Life Ain’t Nuthin’ But.

The track features American rapper The Game, and recording artist Kirko Bangz.

Westside connection. Following his collaboration with Kendrick Lamar on “Thuggin”, Glasses Malone connects with another L.A. native, The Game, on his West Coast bangerToo Hood.”

Glasses Malone decides to charm the ladies with his thuggish ways on this particular track, all while The Game declares himself – (I kid you not) “the West Coast Nas”, when Kirko just pretty much sets it off smooth-like with his “auto-tuned to the-third-degree” – hook. Not complaining, just state the facts folks.

Watch just a small selection of the West coast representing, and speaking a bit of their mind on this track “Too Hood:”

Tracklist

1. Thought It Was a Drought (prod. Metro Boomin & Allen Ritter)

  • DOPE. Future is above average at excellence, and this is not short one bit! Very satisfying opening song. BANGER. “I just fucked your bitch in some Gucci flip flops I just had some bitches and I made ’em lip lock I just took a piss and I seen codeine coming out We got purple Actavis, I thought it was a drought.” [3 out of 5]

2. I Serve the Base (prod. Metro Boomin)

  • Beat heavy. “They should’ve told ya I got that stick with me You the one who duckin’ from a drive by My niggas unemployed sellin’ pot pies I serve the base, I serve the base” [3 out of 5]

3. Where Ya At ft. Drake (prod. Metro Boomin)

  • Featuring Drake. This is a no-brainer. The two make an irresistible on-fire track. Banger and definitely to-be fan favorite. Make it yours today. Just Future asking.. “Where Your Ass was at??” Catchy, upbeat. “Serve a lot of dog food; call you a mutt Where your ass was at dog, when I was on my come-up? The reason I’m here today cause I ain’t never gave up” [5 out of 5]

4. Groupies (prod. Metro Boomin, Southside & Sonny Digital)

  • Real smooth. “Sip on my cup , it’s a movie I pop me a Perc, it’s a movie Smokin’ oh-la-la-la like a Fugee Turn your homie to food, he a Goofy And my lil’ one get head from a groupie

5. Lil One (prod. Metro Boomin & Southside)

  • Now, don’t make me drop a bird on ya I’m gon’ drop a bag on ya I’m gon’ drop that bag on ya Don’t make me drop that bag on ya

6. Stick Talk (prod. Southside)

  • 10 million dollars cash, fuck a friend Started sipping syrup, I’ve been geeked ever since Gotta keep that heat on the seat ever since You know we talk that stick talk, that stick talk

7. Freak Ho (prod. Metro Boomin)

  • Good one. “Pretty girls reppin’ “Pretty Gang” fuckin’ wit the kiddo Type to fuck a hood nigga good, then tell em “ditto” Went from 5 on the indo, 30 rounds in the extendo Fuck a friend though, ain’t pretend though

8. Rotation (prod. Metro Boomin & Southside)

  • Real dope track. Upbeat BANGER. Dirty South Banger. Nice hi-hat kicks and drum bass sub. “I bought all the sodas at the gas station I just put a famous bitch on rotation I just put that famous bitch on rotation I just put lil shawty out on probation” [5 out of 5]

9. Slave Master (prod. Metro Boomin & Southside)

Personal favorite production and overall most energetic track. Catchy and definitely gets stuck in your head after as little as just a few plays. “Jump out a new whip, nigga, like I’m a slave master I pour up two zips nigga I’m feelin’ way better I’m feelin’ way better, I’m feelin’ way better” [5 out of 5]

10. Blow a Bag (prod. Metro Boomin, Southside & Sonny Digital)

  • Released single, mid-temp BANGER. Able to relate, down to earth and has incredible depth to the track and verses. Repetitive hook, good hook. “I ran it up with the same niggas Get that money and stay with the same niggas I know that money can change niggas They don’t look at you like you the same nigga” [4 out of 5]

11. Colossal (prod. Zaytoven)

  • Typical Zaytoven synth-keyboard bounce. (Little substance to some for those who don’t understand it) – but deep hood Street Banger to the real fans of Future. The definition of colossal is “extremely large or great,” to which Future is saying that his stacks of money are getting colossal, i.e. he’s earning so much money. “I’m hungry, I admit it, I swear I’m conditioned I served and I hustled on any conditions Fuck your permission, I’ll get to them digits Come to your town and I get and split it” [5 out of 5]

12. Rich $ex (prod. Metro Boomin, Frank Dukes & Southside)

  • Mid tempo, catchier than ever. Nice relaxing soothing sounds. I dig it. R&B/swagger style, definitely looking for a feature – but doesn’t need one as Future keeps attention throughout this entertaining track, Hook is dope! “Never made love to a misfit You never made love to a misfit Come and kick a deal on some rich shit I’ma keep it pimpin’ on some rich shit” [5 out of 5]

13. Blood on the Money (prod. Metro Boomin, Cassius Jay & Zaytoven)

  • GREAT TRACK. WOW!!! Another real good one. This is definitely a work of art.. just excelling right here! Really really loving this one. On repeat over – and over.. “She put me off and it was ugly I made a million dollars, say she love me The way she did me, it destroyed me I kept it real with lil’ shorty” [5 out of 5]

Deluxe version bonus tracks:

14. Trap Niggas (prod. Southside)

  • If you’re anybody, then you know you NEED this song. Gotta get the Deluxe version for it. Definitely worth it. “When you wake up before you brush your teeth You grab your strap, nigga Only time you get down on your knees Shooting craps, nigga Fuck what you heard, God blessin’ all the trap niggas” [5 out of 5]

15. The Percocet & Stripper Joint (prod. Southside)

  • Real talk. Percocet is a painkiller which includes the combination of oxycodone and paracetamol — in this track, Future highlights the extent of his drug use — even stretching to over the counter painkillers — while he’s in a strip club. “I get mad zooted, I got this bad thing I recruited My passion is a movie, I say fuck it ‘cause that’s ruder I stay on Miley Cyrus, every where I go I’m screwed up

16. Real Sisters (prod. Zaytoven)

  • Up tempo keyboard synth friendly track. Pretty addictive. Zaytoven bringing the heat!! “Say you getting throwed, I’m tryna pour up with you Oh, that’s your best friend? I’m tryna fuck her with you First met the bitch, they said they real sisters I don’t give a fuck if they was real sisters” [4 out of 5]

17. Kno the Meaning (prod. Southside)

  • This one is for those that ‘Kno the Meaning.’ Real stuff “I’m fresh off the plane on them Zaytiggy’s I endured so much pain, ain’t got Esco with me Ain’t got nobody smoke one or pour with me Niggas rocked the lean, man, when I was OT” [5 out of 5]

18. Fuck Up Some Commas (prod. DJ Spinz & Southside)

  • Lead single, and definitely for a good reason. Get yourself to Fuck Up Some Commas, already. What Are You Waiting For? BANGER Fake nigga lie to a real nigga Now that’s just some shit that you don’t do I’mma stay real for my real niggas Now that’s just some shit that I’m gon’ do” [5 out of 5]

All around – HIT ALBUM, and a fan favorite. All Future (all the time), and with only one Feature track (Drake), he needs no others – in which he holds his own ground alone – strong.

If you don’t know it by now, you should get to know it a bit better. Fuck Up Some Commas and get yourself a listen or two, and a copy or two of Future’s DS2 right NOW.

[THE HYPE FACTOR: 5 out of 5]
