ChokLit Fresh: New Music from Lil Boosie & Jeezy, Cam’ron, DJ Drama

Boosie Bad-Azz

This is what I’m bumpin’ right now. Call me crazy, but I love myself some Lil Boosie! His voice and flow are on point, and I really cannot resist a Southern rapper with flow. Boosie had some success with songs like I Ain’t got Nuthin (with David banner), Zoom and I.n.d.e.p.e.n.d.e.n.t, but most of those attempts did not garner him the recognition he deserves. This songs knocks though. And adding Jeezy to the track was the icing on the cake! Take a listen!

Cam’ron released his sixth studio album, Crime Pays on May 12th. It debuted at #3 on the billboard 200 and has gotten some solid reviews. I thought the album was pretty solid. Although I’m gonna say, some of the excessive misogyny in the lyrics irked me a couple times too many. Nonetheless, here is a standout track from the album, Cookies-N-Apple Juice. I liked this song the first time I heard it. It features Cam’s newest co-signee, Rapper Byrd Lady (hate that name). She is reminding me alot of incarcerated Rapper Remy Ma; her flow is real nice on this! There was a video for this song released to the Internet. Check it out here. Lots of…Ass. Anyways, peep the song!

First up, we have my boy Cam’ron. Let’s get one thing straight: I was a big Dipset fan back in the day. I thought they went real hard, I actually bought all their albums – even Juelz’ first one! But naturally, once they started to blow up (re: Juelz), egos started to clash and friendships started to wane. Then Cam kinda fall off.  He fought off a lyrical battle with the Bully that is 50 Cent. He also did some foolishness while being interviewed on Network TV that just brought straight shame. Cam and Jim Jones ended up having a fall-out unfortunately and are currently not on speaking terms, but I can’t lie, I haven’t really kept up on all the beef. Luckily, Cam’ron’s hiatus has helped him to make good music again, and he is back with this Banga, Get it in Ohio. This is hopefully a hint at what we should expect from his sixth solo effort, Crime Pays.  The song is payin homage to the Mid-West and all the ‘work’ Cam used to get out there. I love this beat – this song reminds me of the good ol’ Dipset days. We need to just all get along, fellas!

Next up, my girl Nikki Minaj. I am still trying to catch up on Homegirl; I featured her in a music post last week and I’m def feeling this girl. As a female Rap artist, she’s got my ear and I couldn’t even cosign for Remy or even Eve (I liked her style better as a Ruff Ryder). DTP’s Shawna was Bad as well, but she couldn’t be consistent, or sell for that matter. Nikki might just be that great ChokLit Hype the ladies (and fellas?) are checking for. I just think she’s ill with the skills. This track, Keys Under Palm Trees, is a narrative about Nikki chillin in the Jamaican heat, puttin’ in work. Use your imagination. The song is dope and the best thing about it is listening to Nikki tell the story. Very rare! Check it out. Oh, and NO cameos!
