VIBE’s Daily Additions to the ‘Pod

1. Waka Flocka Flame (feat. 2 Chainz & Gucci Mane) – “Rooster In My Rarri (Remix)”
Same song, added verses. You’ll get something from this if you’re a fan of either of these eclectic rappers. Otherwise, it’s just a replay.

2. Ciara – “Livin It Up”
This new Ciara joint has a bit of Bangladesh’s signature sound to it, but not completely where it sounds like all his other productions for the likes of Rihanna and others. “Livin It Up” has a joyful nature, & CiCi is staying in her vocal comfort zone—which really works here.

3. Consequence (feat. Wax) – “Lost My Marbles”
Credits go to Lee Bannon for this fire beat! Consequence is known for his ill rhymes, so there’s no real surprise that he killed this. We just had to give proper nods to the producer.

4. Faith Evans – “Tears Of Joy”
Faith ain’t right for dropping such a soulful jam on us like that! Glad to see R&B records like this still being made.

5. Neon Hitch (feat. Tyga) – “Gold”
From the EDM-inspired sound, to the fist-pumping feeling you get, this one is definitely club-ready.
