Music Recommendation – Single – Logic ft. Big K.R.I.T., “Top Ten”

top-ten-logic-big-kritTwo mastered lyricists come together with production done by 6ix to rap on “Top 10”. Despite both of their high voices, the song goes hard and the simplistic hook makes the verses look even harder. Logic could have carried this song without K.R.I.T. most likely, but the guest role makes it even more worth listening to out of interest.

The lyrics are one of the strongest points of this song, and even Logic’s singing voice at the end of the song is a great addition. The song is solid and embodies what I believe modern Hip-Hop should sound like (save for some slurred speech, I just cannot make out some of the words).

Overall, I would rate this song at:

9.25/10

Music Recommendation – Single – Trae Tha Truth, I’m On 2.0

There is honestly no point of listing all of the rappers in this song. I just wrote about I’m On earlier, which is the original Trae song. The “remix” (even though it hardly sounds like the original, so I just call it a sequel) is actually quite good. Any rapper who you may call “crap” or “not good” could prove you wrong with this song, as the verses are rather good, if not unfocused.

I said my complaint in the last one and I will say it again, what is this song trying to convey? You are on what, exactly? The verses sound excellent and the music is good but it feels empty. Even though the second I’m On is the same length as the first, 2.0 features several more appearances.

So now I go through that thing where I rank the verses, though this one is a bit easier than the first I’m On because there are actually some not-so-great parts in this song here and there:

1. Kendrick Lamar (who else did you expect me to pick?)

2. B.o.B

3. Bun B

4. J. Cole

5. Jadakiss

6. Big K.R.I.T.

7. Gudda Gudda (actually not bad)

8. Tyga

When I say rapfest about these songs, it is not only because of the amount of popular rappers on two tracks, but also how many are in the music videos (a lot, by the way). So overall, I would rate the song at 9.5/10. Some very solid verses and a great song, but no chorus sadly and a couple of a disappointing Tyga verse (but then again, what did you expect?).
