Jamla Records is dropping GQ’s Rated Oakland on June 24th. On the latest release GQ teams up with Nipsey Hussle and Rapper Big Pooh over some unquestionable 9th Wonder production. So after working with each other on “Jambalaya” from Pooh’s Fat Boy Fresh 3.5 last year, we get another pairing of the two. So can we get things squashed between Pooh and ‘Te? Then can we get a LB song, just a song, I can start there. Of course, I’m going to need an album after that. Just saying. Oh and grab GQ’s Rated Oakland in 2 weeks.
In the rap industry, getting signed to a label used to mean something. Now it only means……well it doesn’t mean anything usually since Rap labels are dying left and right (See Bad Boy Records). That being said, when a rapper such as Rapper Big Pooh (Little Brother) gets signed to a label like Mello Music Group, the real MMG, it’s best to take notice. MMG has been doing some brilliant things in the world of Hip-Hop and putting out some very solid efforts from incredibly talents artists. Adding Pooh to the label is strong move which should pay off for both parties in a very short amount of time. Rapper Big Pooh, is known for a tireless work ethic and this is something I believe most MMG artists all share in common with the North Carolina emcee. I’m looking forward to him working with Gensu Dean, 7even:Thirty, Oddisee, and…well the entire camp really. He’s collaborated with several of them through out his career and the results have been received well. Below check out his effort with Duke Westlake and Stik Figa from Mandela Vol. 2: Today’s Mathematics. Word is that this summer we can expect a project between Pooh and Nottz that will be made available for free dollars and zero cents. Then an official MMG album will follow that with assistance from the Mello Music camp. Congratulations to everyone involved, looking forward to hearing some great music in the future.
That damn Pimp Trick Gangsta Click album….I wish there was a wack music police department….I’d be lying if I didn’t say I wanted to see another LB album, and I know the U.S.S.R. is more likely to invade the Rocky Mountains just north of Denver than to see it, but still I can dream can’t I? At least these cats are all still doing their own thing. Raise you hand if you knew “Speed” had a video? Bueller? Bueller? Shout out to Big Dho getting his Bill Duke on….
From Dirty Pretty Things, Pooh, who is obviously still reeling from the butt kicking he received this past week in fantasy football, drops the video for “They Say” I wish we could get the LB reunion, but it seems once one relationship is patched up another goes sour……..
