Joell Ortiz- “Taking My Talents to YAOWA”: The “Free Agent” Appetizer [mixtape]

I’m NOT a DJ, but here’s a little something I put together. As you know Joell Ortiz has been a Free Agent for a while. He also happens to be one of the best MCs in the game since ’98. This is a collection of his verses, and ONLY his verses.  Hopefully Eminem does his best Pat Riley impression and signs him already.

Young Buck– Back On My Buck Shit 2: Change Of Plans [Mixtape]

I always thought Buck did his thing. This track is featuring Lupe Fiasco…but take a listen to the whole tape, definitely worth it.

Nicki Minaj ft. Eminem – Roman’s Revenge

Well well well…I never thought I’d ever be posting a Nicki track….but featuring Slim Shady… I had to. Wasn’t too bad…I wish she would stop it with that annoying voice thing she does.

Lyrics I Like…and YOU Should Too: “If You Love Me”

Much respect for DJ Absolut for putting this together….great way to unite a bunch of sick MCs and just murder the track.

I guess when so much MC skills get together….LYRICS gotta be on point!

DJ Absolut – ‘If You Love Me’ (Feat. Havoc, Sheek Louch, Joell Ortiz & Cassidy)
[audio:|titles=DJ Absolut (feat Havoc, Sheek Louch, Cassidy & Joell Ortiz) – If You Love Me.]

Havoc: How you want love and don’t give it back, all they want is V.I.P. and where the liquor at? And when you got a good heart, yeah they walk on it, but I got a tec with a mean cough on it. I don’t wanna hear the lame excuses, left my guard down now I’m throwing up my deuces. Fore’ you have a nigga stressed smoking looses, 100s I ain’t for the dumb shit. Cause love is a selfish emotion, so I only give it up in doses. If you give too much then they won’t need ya, it’s funny how they catch amnesia. Remember when they monkey asses broke? Niggas get money then they ass get low. Quiet as a mouse motherfuckers tip toe, thanks for the love, I’m a let a clip go.

Ryu Black- Metsu Ansatsuken

Take a listen to this MC from Long Island, NY. He has a great flow with sick lyrics…and if you are a fan of Street Fighter, you will get most of the references. His album Perfect Heaven (天) drops on January 11, 2011.

Joe Budden- “Follow My Lead” video

That Mood Muzik 4 is sick. Easily one of the best mixtapes of the year.

Joe Buddens murders this track and if it was a solo track I would have NO problem with it….but Joell also does his thing and since the video is missing his verse….here it is:[audio:|titles=”Follow Your Lead”- Joell Ortiz verse]

Lyrics I Like…and YOU Should Too

WELCOME to 7th BORO: Hip Hop City

I am just a fan of Hip Hop…a fan who appreciates LYRICS.  LYRICS that are clever, smart, honest, knowledgeable, deep, passionate, and thought provoking.  I KNOW that Real Hip Hop is out there and I SEE that Wack rappers are also out there. Unfortunately, the wack rappers are getting all the shine.  They get 97.1 percent of the radio spins and 106 dance videos a day on television.  Too many wack rappers are disrespecting Hip Hop with their lyrics.  LYRICS that either make no sense, are nursery rhymes, are auto tuned, or depict an extremely FAKE “thug”, “gangsta” or “mafia” lifestyle.  But when those  LYRICS are backed with a catchy beat or an even more catchier dance, the LYRICS are overlooked and considered irrelevant.  I want to make the LYRICS important again.  The average ear doesn’t grasp the MC’s lyrics.  They don’t realize how clever they are.  Sometimes it takes someone to read these lyrics to get the full effect. Even the truest Hip Hop fan can sometimes listen to a track and miss something.

Be on the look out for: LYRICS I LIKE…AND YOU SHOULD TOO. These lyrics will  NOT come from an album.  These lyrics will most likely NOT be found on your ordinary “lyrics” website.  The track and lyrics will come from a freestyle, a mixtape, or a guest appearance.  Read carefully and Enjoy.

Lets take it back to the basics..
Cuz face it..
Nowadays it’s all about the beats..
Lyrics are wasted..
Simple minds get nothing at all..
I’m saying what you think the rewind button is for…
If I was your A&R every verse be declined..
You a grown man, why you kicking nursery rhymes?..
Fooling the public with the rubbish you create..
Hoping they won’t notice it beneath the 8O8s..
It’s a shame that your tactics are affective..
It seems like listeners are not as selective..
