Gotham Green and Quickie Mart feat. Planet Asia “Game Change”
I’m a big fan of the late, former Temptations singer Eddie Kendricks. So anytime a Hip-Hopper samples him, I’m almost certain to like it. Gotham Green and Quickie Mart deliver that satisfaction on their latest single off the Haze Diaries Vol. 3. Planet Asia also comes through for a guest verse. Extra kudos to Quickie Mart for the sample flip and adding some different arrangements from what others (including Alicia Keys) have done with it.
WAKA FLOCKA BUSTIN’ SHOTS
I haven’t finalized my opinion yet on Waka Flocka Flame’s debut album Flockaveli, which dropped this past Tuesday (October 5). But there are a few points I’m sure of. One, it’s not the classic he assured me it was when I met him at the BET Hip Hop Awards (what a surprise…). And two, it’s damn good workout music. Form your own opinion on its worth based in this video for the song that kicks off the album, “Bustin’ At ‘Em.”
