V Playlist: Common, Beanie Sigel x Young Chris x Game, Juvenile, Trae Tha Truth x Young Jeezy x Yo Gotti, Bow Wow

VIBE’s Daily Additions to the ‘Pod

1. Common – “No Sell Out”
When Common & No I.D. get together, nothing short of musical magic is created. On “No Sell Out,” Com raps effortlessly over No I.D.’s bass-heavy production. Based on the overall feel of the song, we can definitely see why this didn’t make the cut for The Dreamer/The Believer, but it’s still a cool song nonetheless.

2. Beanie Sigel (feat. Young Chris & Game) – “Dangerous”
Hopefully this song works well on the radio for Beans. The beats knocks, and it’s pretty chill throughout.

3. Juvenile – “Who The Fuck Is You”
Juvi kind of lost that fun nature in his music from earlier work in the late 90s with Cash Money. However, without comparing this to stuff from a decade ago, it’s not horrible. We just expect to have fun & go crazy in the club to Juvenile songs. This doesn’t offer that.

4. Trae Tha Truth (feat. Young Jeezy & Yo Gotti) – “Choppa Talk”
Definitely trap music right here. Southern rap fans, enjoy this banger.

5. Bow Wow – “I Can’t Change”
Not exactly an attention-garnering song for a mixtape release (Greenlight 5), but he makes up for that with his lyrical content. Talking real about your life, on wax, never hurts.
