“I can tell that you’re mad/Because you getting hostile/’Cause I got my own business/And I ain’t finished high school”
When the cover art came through for this new collab, I did a double-take. I almost confused Consequence with Keith David of Dead Presidents fame. While most of the Hip-Hop world is quiet this Christmas Eve, Consequence, Diggy Simmons, and Mac Miller are continuing the grind with a surprise boom-bap offering in “I’m VIP.”
Lee Bannon handles the beat, using a dusty sample loop for the throwback 90s feel. Statik Selektah adds more atmosphere with scratches of Biggie lines from “Big Poppa” (“Who rock grooves and make moves with all the mamis…”). As you can deduce from the title, this is an “all about me/boasting” track. Consequence keeps a laid back flow for the lead-off position. Young Diggy has the slickest lines out the bunch, and is the emcee most comfortable with his self-boasting (“And y’all got Twitter followers/But I got apostles”). Wiz Khalifa protegé Mac Miller hasn’t had many high-profile collaborations, but he does a serviceable job in the coveted last spot. It would’ve been better to have him switch with Diggy, but it doesn’t hamper the pace of the song.
Consequence’s new mixtape, Movies On Demand 2, is in “coming soon” status, which hopefully translates into early 2011.

Music Today: Wale Offers Nothing, Nicki Minaj’s Favorite Color, Ill Bill & DJ Muggs Go Spanish, Willie the Kid’s Bath Water RompPosted: August 4, 2010 in Music News

Wale’s Attention Deficit wasn’t the home run he or his label Interscope expected. So what does the D.C. native do? He launches a sequel of sorts to his most critically-acclaimed project to date, 2008′s Seinfeld-inspired Mixtape About Nothing. As a Rap Radar exclusive, Wale dropped More About Nothing yesterday afternoon. You can tell alot of time and effort was invested; Wale offers his fans 21 tracks with features from Wiz Khalifa, UCB and Avery Storm. Production-wise Wale gets assistance from Cool & Dre, Drumma Boy, Mark Henry and others.
If you’re like me, you’ll throw on 100 Miles & Running before Attention Deficit, so this mixtape is welcome. Wale seems much more confident and relaxed in the sandbox realm of mixtapes rather than albums. On the fence about downloading? Here’s a sample song below.

11.23.10- PINK FRIDAY- The Album
With that simple phrase Nicki Minaj confirmed the title of her album. Right now the details are scarce outside of “Your Love” being confirmed and Minaj promising to unveil a new alter ego dubbed Roman Zolanski. Regarding production, all she’s verified so far is that she’s been working extensively with Swizz Beatz. Nicki has nearly three calendar months to work with, so expect another single and more hype leading up to November 23.
I don’ think she’ll surpass Drake, but I predict Nicki to do sell 275-325k her first week.
Ill Bill Talks “Narco Corridos”
Ill Bill and Sick Jacken break down the concept behind this Spanish-inspired track off the DJ Muggs collaboration LP Kill Devil Hills (August 24). Album is sounding pretty good so far.
Willie the Kid feat. Lee Bannon “Bath Water Running”
DJ Drama protege Willie Kid just dropped a new video for this joint off his iTunes available Never a Dull Moment EP. The Ghostface vocal sample is highly appropriate because this is definitely something you’d expect from Pretty Toney production-wise and visually. Willie doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously and shows a little personality in this one. If anything else, the two women should hold your attention.
