V Playlist: Starshell x Kanye West x Big Sean, Chinx Drugz x French Montana, Chuck Inglish x Boldy James, Soulja Boy x Curren$y, Lil Twist, Joelle James x Chris Brown
VIBE’s Daily Additions to the ‘Pod
1. Starshell (feat. Kanye West & Big Sean) – “Superluva (Remix)”
This futuristic pop banger has the Kanye touch, so this may be the one to bring Mary J Blige’s artist to the forefront.
2. Chinx Drugz (feat. French Montana) – “I’m A Cokeboy”
The beat is on this one is ill! Chinx & French’s flows def get a stamp of approval from us.
3. Chuck Inglish & Boldy James – “Detroit Game”
Dilla never dissapointed when it came to production. This one comes off his latest posthumous release Rebirth Of Detroit. You gotta love how chill this track is—R.I.P. Dilla!
4. Soulja Boy (feat. Curren$y) – “Red Bentley”
Probably the best that Soulja Boy has released in recent times (remember “Scarface”—yikes!). Curren$y’s flow is casual cool as usual. Stick to this style Soulja.
5. Lil Twist – “Wake Up”
The problem with Twist is that, aside from relying too heavily on Auto-Tune, his rap delivery is so similar to Lil Wayne that he’ll never branch out and have his own identity. This track proves that.
6. Joelle James (feat. Chris Brown) – “Fading Away”
This song has promise. Joelle just needs to find a vocal style that she’s comfortable with and stick with it.
