VIBE’s Daily Additions to the ‘Pod

1. Mac Miller & Pharrell – “Glow”
It’s almost impossible for Pharrell to produce a beat that’s less than stellar. This one proves that once again. Mac’s fresh lyricism and youth give Rell’s production new life in this next generation of artists. We can’t wait to hear this full project.

2. Robin Thicke – “Another Life”
Definitely one for the grown & sexy to two-step to. Somewhat reminiscent to R. Kelly’s “Step In The Name Of Love,” with that vibe to make you get up and dance, Thicke keeps his signature style while ushering something fresh.

3. Ace Hood (feat. Bun B & Kirko Bangz) – “Double Cup”
When it comes to drinking anthems, this one is pretty much the same ole, same ole. While Bun B lends a decent verse, the “bragging-cause-I’m-high” rap is definitely sounding stale.

4. Domo Genesis & Alchemist – “Prophecy”
That guitar riff throughout adds so much drama to this track. Paired with the piano sample & Domo’s effortless flow, this one isn’t for knocking to—you’re supposed to actually feel it.

5. Jae Millz (feat. Al Doe) – “I Shot Ya”
Sampling LL Cool J’s ill Trackmasters-produced classic, it’s best to judge this one strictly on their bars. With that said, we can’t complain here. Both dudes fair well over this beat.
