VIBE’s Daily Additions To The ‘Pod

1. Nas – “The Don”

So we got a track produced by Heavy D (R.I.P.), Salaam Remi, and Da Internz, a certified New York street anthem, AND Nas reminding us what hip-hop is supposed to sound like? It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway—DOPE!

2. Young Dro – “Where My Dogs At”

Young Dro comes hard with a head knocker. The line “Bitch you look like Nicki Minaj/I see that bang hoe” is comical enough in itself for one good listen.

3. Danny Brown – “Baseline”

Coming off the recently released iTunes Deluxe Edition of his breakout mixtape XXX, Danny goes for the simplistic approach with the beat, letting his bars do the talking. “Ferocious, but the flow’s inappropriate/But if you approach this, they might call encroachment.” Simply put, the dude is nice!

4. Memphis Bleek – “Hustle Money”

Nothing really new here that we haven’t already heard. The beat could be easily mistaken for any of the other Hit-Boy sounding tracks out there.
