Hey there VL friends. Jessi here to bring you the Video of the Week. I’m a little off but bare with me. For this weeks Video, I’ve chosen Danny Brown - ODB.
Danny Brown brings us a new (just as vulgar as i like) single. His album OLD drops in stores September 30th. This video reminds you that Danny Brown is just a tawdry man, telling you how it is, and doing it with his own style. The video is trippy as hell and full of colourful, obscene, life.
If you don’t believe me, check it out yourself.
Jessi out! xo
What’s up Vatican Lifers? It’s Jon here doing a Reviews & Revues post a day late, sorry! For this weeks R&R edition, I’ll be reviewing a classic album from New Orleans, LA.
Soulja Slim - Give It 2 Em Raw
In the year 1998, Master P’s No Limit Records released around 20 albums. One of them which was Soulja Slim’s debut album “Give It 2 Em Raw”, unfortunately Slim was locked up on an armed robbery charge on the release date. It sold over 89,000 the first week, just imagine what the number could have been if he wasn’t incarcerated. Just like any other No Limit release you got a variety of features on the album from Master P, Silkk The Shocker, Snoop Dogg, Trenitty, Big Ed, Mr. Serv On, Full Blooded, Mia X, Mac, C Murder, Mystikal, Steady Mobb’n, Fiend, Gambino Family, Prime Suspects, Magic and Kane & Abel. All the production was done by the legendary Beats By The Pound aka The Medicine Men, in my opinion this was the best shit they’ve been apart of. Everything about this album IS New Orleans from Slims unique flow and raw delivery to the dirty bounce from the bass to the synthesizers. One of the best if not best release off of the ginormous No Limit collection. My favorite tracks would have to be Takin Hits, Imagine, Lawbrekaz and From What I Was Told, which has a video that can be watched here ( http://youtu.be/dpTxSG3P8fc ). It could have been done without the tracks Anything and N.L. Party. Definitely worth checking out if you never have, you won’t be disappointed. Bob ya head. I’m out. Peace.
RIP Soulja Slim
