VIBE’s Daily Additions to the ‘Pod

1. Justin Bieber (feat. Drake) – “Right Here (Chopped Not Slopped Remix)”
It’s weird: the chopped & screwed effect makes Bieber’s voice sound like a completely different—and fairly decent—male vocalist. We got to admit, it makes the track a little more interesting now.

2. Curren$y – “Go Crazy”
“Go Crazy” sounds like an unmastered mixtape track, but given that it’s “previously unreleased” that’s understandable. Overall, it isn’t horrible, but there’s nothing really here that stands out or goes beyond “ok.” Spitta is still a dope MC though, so there’s no love lost.

3. Skyzoo (feat. Chi-Ali) – “Jansport Strings (Remix)”
Damn, 9th Wonder really put his foot into the production on this. Sky’s been definitely killing things with his current new releases, and this one follows suit.

4. Torae – “Varnell Hill”
The Martin reference is too funny for words, but all jokes aside this one goes hard. Also, the beat sounds lovely with your headphones at full blast.

5. Ty Dolla $ign – Beach House (Mixtape)
Ty goes in for the west coast on his new mixtape. With appearances from Dom Kennedy & Kid Ink, we definitely recommend this for cruising purposes. Tracks we particularly thought were dope are “Another One,” “Hold Up,” and the mixtape opener “My Cabana.”
