Music Recommendation – Single – Audio Push ft. Wale, Quick Fast

quick-fastI have talked about my appreciation for Audio Push before, but in all honesty until now my favorite song by the Hip-Hop/Rap group was Shine. During a time when Hip-Hop was not reaching me, this song brought me back in. Then I discovered their new hit with Wale, Quick Fast, and guess what my new favorite Hip-Hop/Rap song is?

Quick Fast seems to hint at what the song’s subject could be. However, it is less vulgar than I assumed. It is more relaxed and takes a risk by leaning more towards RnB on the hook than Hip-Hop, which I can easily appreciate. Each rap verse brings its own appeal, and even with Wale’s role adding to the enjoyment of the song, it is not necessarily the only reason to listen to the track. It did, however, lure me in when I gazed at this feature, so kudos to Audio Push for picking a solid feature artist.

Audio Push has worked with rappers such as Lil Wayne before, but I was rather excited to hear Wale alongside these two differing and original rappers. Production was also a huge piece of this song, with names such as Hit-Boy and Preach assisting S-Dot and $.O.N. on the beat.

This song achieves an easy hook and makes it catchy as can be, so I do recommend listening to it. Overall, I would rate the song at:

9.25/10

The verses may have their weak spots, especially how each one seems to start off slow. I would say the first verse is the best, but the second verse and Wale’s brief spot are both also impressive. Flow is a smooth as a baby’s bottom after the first couple of tough strides into each verse.

Music Recommendation – Single – Audio Push, On The Way (OTW)

Audio Push just released a new song recently. I like a few of their songs because these two drop serious verses and, though there music can be stereotypical of rap music, their flow is very solid. They manage to design good hooks and choose excellent beats. Their sound reminds me of Kanye West.

On The Way is a relatively unknown song produced by Hit-Boy and Beatboy. Just a little over 100, talk about unknown. This one could use a little appreciation though. While I’ve never been a fan of the artists they collaborate with, their solo music has appealed to me before. This song is one of my favorites next to Shine, which I’ll leave you to search on your own if you like this one.

My rating is 8/10, lowered due to the stereotypical verses and typical hook but their flow is consistent and the beat is great. Give it a listen below:
