Who doesn’t enjoy a good carnival? Big Sean brings a little Caribbean flavor to his “Guap” video, which has him traveling through his native Detroit. This song will be included on Sean’s sophomore album Hall of Fame, tentatively scheduled for a February release date.

G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean, Common and Cyhi rolled through Hot 97 yesterday for a Funkmaster Flex freestyle session. Everyone did their thing but Atlanta’s Cyhi da Prynce definitely sounded hungry like he had a point to prove. And a thumbs down to Pusha T for sitting this one out. G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer compilation is in stores now.

This song sounds a lot better in the hands of upper echelon emcees. Pusha sets this off right and Kanye follows suit. The momentum isn’t as strong from Keef’s verse forward, but it’s doubtful you’ll list this remix amongst things you “don’t like.”

Good Friday came early last night courtesy of the first single from Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music compilation. Like this week’s “Thera Flu” track, southern-styled production is again utilized. The beat has an ominous but catchy flavor and incorporates a patios-heavy chorus for some variety from the norm. All the emcees ride the beat well. Even if you’re “2 Chainz’d out” at this point by his oversaturation, his Dirty South roots have him sounding the most natural and comfortable over this beat. Kanye’s verse has a peculiar beat change, but it doesn’t break the atmosphere. Early prediction — the G.O.O.D. Music will be significantly better than both the Young Money and MMG compilations that have dropped over the last year.

While Drake and Big Sean have both downplayed an answer record to Ludacris ”Bada Boom,” the DTP head is going all out with a history-cognizant video for his buzzing diss track. For the first minute, Luda takes viewers down a short recollection of memorable battles starting with Busy Bee and Kool Moe Dee down through Pac, Biggie, Nas, Jay-Z and LL Cool J. Luda accentuates his stance of Sean disrespecting Hip-Hop’s legacy by interspersing clips of Rakim, Special Ed and Big Daddy Kane to show he’s on the correct side of history. All this is made more digestible by an sultry female lead whose outfit is a nod to the 1997 sci-fi The Fifth Element. Drake and Big Sean will never be mistaken for confrontational or battle rappers, but you have to assume at some point their pride as emcees will kick in even with the facts being on Luda’s side.

“Don’t make me get on that ‘Stomp’ shit and get back at it…”
Ludacris has the perfect style for battle-rapping. At his best, his rhymes are noted for rapid-fire lines, clear flows and humor. These ingredients were what made T.I. quickly resolve his issues with Luda after testing the waters with a subliminal and getting spanked on the same song (“Stomp”). But that was years ago. Can a 2011 Luda still bring the same heat? After listening to “Bada Boom,” apparently so. Over a year ago, Big Sean name-checked Ludacris as a rapper that did weak renditions of his “supa dupa flow.” Drake also referenced a specific Ludacris line ( It’s a parade…Macy’s!) as a reason why that flow needed to die.
Ludacris evidently hasn’t forgotten about those comments. The essential ingredient of a good battle record is facts, and Luda kicks off the festivities with a history lesson” intro showing artists from Q-Tip in 1991 to Luda himself in 2008 using the so-called “supa dupa flow” that Big Sean credits himself for creating.
Then the fun begins. Luda plays the role of stern elder, chiding Sean for not learning the history of his profession and mocks him with his signature “boy!” phrase (“May not like the way I used it/ But you know you ain’t invent it, boy!”). While Sean gets most of the direct bars, Luda also alludes to Drake’s comments, lumping together both young emcees as mere foot soldiers in the game (“Fuck the fame/ But go ‘head and get ‘ya five minutes/ Then you frontline cadets/ Can report to your lieutenants..”).
The ball is in the court of the young guns now.

“How your waist anorexic but then your ass is colossal?”
Nicki Minaj doesn’t like discussing her ample derriere in interviews, but she doesn’t have much of a choice on this song. As raunchy as her verse is in parts (“Somebody point me to the best ass eater…”), her vocal inflections add a disarming, humorous edge to it. It’s been awhile since Nicki killed a feature, so she was overdue. Look for her scene-stealing appearance in the upcoming official video.

Another leak from the rumored Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y and Big Sean mixtape. Over the last 24 hours, another rumor spreading on forums is that there may not be a full mixtape, just these leaks. That might not be a bad thing. As cool as the vibe is on these tracks, we’ve essentially been getting the same song over and over, even down to the emcees rapping in the same order. That would have gotten old quick with 10 or more tracks. We should note that Sean sounds a lot better and in tune with Spitta and Wiz on this track “Proceed.” And that sprawling sax on “Dot Dot Dot” is lovely. Time will tell if we get a full mixtape.
