Jay Z (Fantastic 4)

Started his career in 1990 and has been active ever since. He is the one rapper from the golden age whom have aged extremely well. His last album 4:11 released in 2017 went platinum selling a million copies first week, but we are not talking about that. From the La familia to the blueprint. Jay Z had already cemented his name in the hall of fame, retired in 2007, came back from retirement (which really pissed me off) and dropped the blueprint 3 which went platinum. He is the only rapper in Hip Hop history that has gone platinum in every studio album released! Phenominal, as time moves, so does he! There are many rappers others can name that are 10x better than Jay Z in terms of content or lyrical content, but there are very few that can master the 48th law of power in the book 48 laws of power by Robert Greene, which is assume formlessness.

Its only right for me to pull up my all time favourite Jay Z track:

Nas (Fantastic 4)

Many will not agree with why I featured Nas as an artist from the 90s golden age era whose crossover was not as successful in the 00s but its the elephant in the room as when compared to his long time rival Jay Z, you can name any album and it would be dubbed a classic (albums from 1999-2009). After the success of illmatic, It was written and I am, he has not really aged well. Being only 17 when he released Illmatic which went instantly platinum, was awarded and hailed as the greatest Hip Hop album ever and it was dubbed an instant classic by reviewers when it was released. This album aged very well as the years gone on, however, at the turn of the century, Nastradamus, The Lost Tapes, Gods Son, Streets Disciple, Hip Hop Is Dead and Untitled these albums have not performed well at all throughout the 00s era. Whilst, Jay Z went strength to strength after the Ethering that Nas dished out at the turn of the century has gone strength to strength. Its only right that I flip my favourite Nas record that I grew up with!

E-40 (Fantastic 4)

Started his career in the 1986 and has possibly been the longest serving rapper and the hardest working rapper alive. Every single year from 2008 he has dropped an album and all very creative. I am not as acquainted with E-40’s music until 2006 when my favourite rapper at the time (T-Pain) featured on “U and Dat” which featured in the album “My ghetto report card” which I will always think that the album is a bay area classic! This isn’t his first work, upon further research, I discovered that he had dropped 8 albums from 1993-2003 which got me question, why have I heard of Jay Z and Nas and all these artists in the year 2000 which is the year that I first started listening to Hip Hop properly. I personally believe he is the most overlooked Hip Hop artist in the game. It was because of him I really started paying attention to the bay area of the west coast and even discovered of who Too Short was, because, after listening to E-40’s “My Ghetto Report Card”. Let me flip it back to my most favourite E-40 record.

Lil Jon (Fantastic 4)

Disclaimer: I am not his biggest fan but his work cannot go unnoticed! Without the creation of the sub-genre crunk, we wouldn’t have Jersey Club nor Trap Music today. It also have to be noted that the Crunk style of hip hop also influenced some songs from the West coast also. Lil Jon has to be the most innovative rapper that came from the 90s and cemented himself on the 00s. It may not be the classic track “Get Low” which put Lil Jon on the map but this is my favourite record of his.

Fantastic 4 (French Montana)
A track that took me back to my teen years in 2009 when he released NY Minute, a huge hit that had remixes coming from Mase, Nicki Minaj and Chinx (RIP). The bars gloriously delivered by Remy Ma gave this track the rawness that pulled me to the track. Track was taken from the ‘Uncle Drew’ movie soundtrack!

Fantastic 4 (Lee Mazin)
I had to showcase this freestyle. Lee Mazin is an artist that has been playing hide and seek with all of us. Signed to Ruff Ryders Entertainment whom has produced the likes of DMX, Swizz Beatz, Eve, Jadakiss, The Lox, Cassidy, Jesus Christ the list goes on. It brought me a lot of Optimism to what Lee Mazin had to offer and I was somewhat mixed on how to receive the first track I heard which was “Hella Trappin” which was quite good but she hid a lot of the lyrical ability that I know she possesses especially with the people around her and having performed with the likes of “Talib Kweli”. I done a lot more research on her watched her freestyles,which is why latest release “Ooh Baby” left me disappointed me greatly. However, enough of the criticism, I am not a critic, just a lover of music. This freestyle renewed the optimism, her flair on this track as well as the lyrical ability I know she possesses keeps me optimistic as I continue to watch her career gather strength.
The Chun Lee freestyle is only available to be heard on the show, it can’t be found on youtube. But lets throw it back to her freestyle on “Sway in The Morning back” in 2015!

Fantastic 4 (Wiz Khalifa)
The sample from Notorious BIG “Back To Cali” track as well as Wiz Khalifa’s impeccable flow completed this amazing piece of track. I want to call it a hit but many will sleep on this due to the way music is setup nowadays but you cannot escape the nostalgic feel that this presents to you. This track will feature on Wiz Khalifa’s upcoming album “Rolling Papers 2: The Weed Album” which is coming out on Friday 13th July 2018.

Fantastic 4 (Lyrica Anderson)
Produced by Hitmaka, this is a very good track beautifully laying out why most women go into the strip game as well as the dangers of it. It is a hit, one for the bosses.

Fantastic 4 (Meek Mill)

If you think the song was woke take a look at this breathtaking performance on the BET awards show. Meek has been coming strength to strength since his release from prison and this was a stellar statement to the direction he wants to take his artistry!

Fantastic 4 (Militia)

Fantastic 4 (Mad Skillz)

This is track is completely chilled, it is so bold yet so gentle it is not too complex for people to understand but the lyrics and the way its delivered, you can tell that it wasn’t regurgitating off what others talk about, it is very original. Skillz has not been active in recent years, his last work was a feature in 2012 on One for money by Royce Da 5″9 whom we done the book of ryan album cuts in episode 35. You may know him from classics such as NOD Factor taken from his 1995 debut album “From Where” Y’all Dont Wanna” From his second studio album “Confessions of a ghostwriter”, I wonder if there is a Drake shoutout in there. And speaking of Drake he has dropped his most anticipated project to date called “Scorpion” only anticipated because his fans really want him to address the allegations which Pusha T brought up in their earlier beefs which we covered in Episodes 38 and 39. Here is a track from the album

Fantastic 4 (G-Eazy)

Definitely another hit from G-Eazy calling it from now, it features Blocboy JB and Blac Youngsta.

Nick Cannon, Fat Joe – Ncredible Gang 28. I Wish I Missed My Ex – Mahalia 29. Come Over – The Intanet
The Fantastic 4 (Black Thought)
Dostoevsky Ft. Rapsody – Black Thought The beauty of this track is that it literally sounds like a freestyle! Infact the entire EP project sounds like a freestyle, as if he didn’t write down anything and he just let things come out. It is a masterpiece of a track weighing in on the ghostwriting that is currently at the forefront of discussions with the line “written without a ghost writer”, this suggests that rappers almost have to disclaim their loyalty to the art-form now that it has a massive pop style to the genre. The lyrical bombs in this track alone is to die like wise in the project as if the name “Streams Of Thought” did not suggest that it will be all about the lyrics considering stream suggests a continuous flow of a particular idea or thing whilst thought literally is his name as well as thoughts that can be expressed in freestyle mode. GENIUS! You may want to lookup Dostoevsky to understand the track further also! Streams Of Thought Vol.1
The Fantastic 4 (Vic Mensa)
This song is definitely a hit for the clubs. A banger of a track that describes his pleasures as well as an insight personal life and his political motivations. In all honesty, I like Vic Mensa, I do feel he is purposefully desensitizing his music, he has a lot more to him as he is quite smart, the use of metaphors and references shows he is already ahead of most rappers in the game today, pay attention to the lyrics that he used constructs this song. Note: The official video is not out yet!
The Fantastic 4 (Jelani Blackman)
“Innovative” is the only word I have to describe Jelani Blackman, the West Londoner has been active in the rap scene after his release of “Twenty//Three” but took a two year hiatus after 2014, he returned in 2016 with a very insightful “Follow” and with the release of “Go Low” he continues to show us what he is capable of. What he hasnt revealed much is his private but makes up for it in his music.
Fantastic 4 (Little Simz)
This choice for feature was my sheer love for her music and her ability to create hits and when I listen to an album, I tend to look and dig for those album cuts, those hidden gems in an album and this track was no exception. Taken from her “Stillness In Wonderland” album which is a marathon of an album with 23 tracks but its worth the listen. Especially if you love Hip Hop. Her swagger on a track is unjackable neither is her message unrefined. The care she takes in her subtle delivery encapsulates why I love to follow her work and why I love this track. Stillness In Wonderland (Album)

The Fantastic 4 (Childish Gambino)

The Fantastic 4 features four distinct artists assembled with their heat that will be guaranteed to save your ear holes from utter destruction. This weeks assembled fantastic 4:

Name: Childish Gambino a.k.a Donald Glover
Age: 34
Place Of Birth: Edwards Air Force Base, California, U.S.
Song Featured: This Is America
Latest Project: None to report!

There is always great content out there, we just have to look for it because greatness is never given or spoon fed, it is only discovered. Upon hearing this song, I didn’t know what to expect from Childish Gambino, for the proper understanding of the song, you need to watch the video, there are a lot of symbolism in the video that suggests that there is no difference between present day America and the Americas of the 1700s to the early 1900s. The overall message of the song was that I interpreted was that there is active coonery in America when things are not okay. That the only way we make the money in order to support our families and communities is by doing the exact same things that was done to please the masters that controlled the slaves whilst also subtly touching on the fact even if you acted like a coon or not, you are always at risk of losing your life. The first scene demonstrated this message in minute 0:45-0:51 of the track where the man was sitting there not really doing anything yet was shot. Minute 1:50-1:57, the whole setting where he gunned down the choir that was simple singing, reminding us of the incident that in Charleston where members of an all Black church was gunned down by the assailant Dylann Roof in 2015 whom is currently facing either life in prison or the dealth penalty. Get this, Childish Gambino went as far as using a replica of the rifle that was used in Charleston by Dylann. There was a lot of messages in this song that covered the prison system, the ignorance of the youth whom make themselves oblivious to their present conditions by just “jocking” and “jiving” translating to creating the latest dance moves and showing off to the masters. Nothing wrong with dancing but now isnt the time is what Childish Gambino may have been narrating with this track (More music like this please, IM BEGGING ALL YOU ARTISTS OUT THERE).

In an interview with the Breakfast Club, Childish Gambino shared his experiences when he was marginalised by the police adding his view of the experience that these problems in society are happening to blacks everywhere due to the fact they are painted as worthless and we have to begin to live what we speak or in other words practice what we preach. This added a different narrative to this track that he made which gave revealed a much deeper message to what Gambino was talking about in the song. If you noticed after every shooting, everything stops for a few secs and then he just goes right back to dancing suggesting that we are really quick to dismiss these problems and label it down to a few rotten apples. I agree with Childish Gambino that the living our truth is the hardest part, because if you are not willing to live your truth, whats the point of living? A live pleased is a life spent is what I always.

Kanye West had articulated himself as well as Gambino has done with this masterpiece of a track!

The Fantastic 4 (Rapsody)

The Fantastic 4 features four distinct artists assembled with their heat that will be guaranteed to save your ear holes from utter destruction. This weeks assembled fantastic 4:

Name: Marlana Evans aka Rapsody
Age: 35
Place Of Birth: Snow Hill, North Carolina, U.S.
Song Featured: Sassy
Latest Project: Laila’s Wisdom

Probably the best female rapper since Lauryn Hill, maybe I loved the fact that she reference a house track that I know I have got but cannot remember the name of it (thats how house tracks are like). But nonetheless its a great song to show the example that women should set, it was quite motivational video, not just in the sense that not all breakups should be tears and eating ice cream but more of the narrative that great friends can help you through. Very corny, very, very, corny, but one cant help but think that this was a bigger message of unity amongst women. Currently in Hip Hop/rap, women are not often given the best, either through being over sexualised or being put against eachother when one gets a little bit of shine, although this may not have been demonstrated in the song, it offers the narrative that women should always be there for each other. Rapsody has always stood far away from all of the drama, her and Dej Loaf. I really hope they do a song together. Definitely a fantastic artist in my eyes!

The Fantastic 4 (Maliibu Miitch)

The Fantastic 4 features four distinct artists assembled with their heat that will be guaranteed to save your ear holes from utter destruction. This weeks assembled fantastic 4:

Name: Maliibu Miitch
Age: 27
Place Of Birth: South Bronx, New York, U.S.
Song Featured: Give Her Some Money
Latest Project: None to Report

She is definitely not another Cardi B but what she is rapping about in this track is not far from Cardi’s comeup story. With no stripper past, the rapper is next in line to become big, her flow and delivery in this track is next to nothing. This song leaves the listener with questions of what more does she have to offer in order to give her the money she deserves. I think if she continues to put into her artistry she can be big, she really reminds me of Lil Kim. No doubt she definitely has the rapping ability as well as a likeable persona, its just what she does with it. The one thing I see in her is the fact that she can literally switch up her flows as she pleases, she make it really simple and in the same track change it up to sound complex.

She combines witty lyrics and a gritty delivery with a huge personality to match. Her approach to becoming a heavyweight in the arguable over-saturated rap game has been calculated and meticulous – she has put in the work, waited her turn and upon emerging has stepped up to the plate prompting even PITCHFORK to ask whether Maliibu is in fact “NYC’s best new rapper”.

With her first mixtape entitled “Maliibu Miitch Top 5”, Maliibu paid homage to the top five female MC’s in recent rap history. She spit original and self-written bars to the classics of Lil’ Kim, Lauryn Hill, Eve, Foxy Brown, and Missy Elliot with a digital premiere on PAPER MAG. Proving her range in talent and skill, Maliibu went on to release her first priginal track, “4AM”, product by Paul Couture. The song initially premiered with THE FADER, and was subsequently picked up by Pitchfork as the week’s Best New Track. REVOLT TV produced and aired a mini documentary on Maliibu and her rise as a rapper. Most recently featured in VIACOM HYPE & INFLUENCE documentary accompanied by TIMES SQUARE billboard. Maliibu has additional releases planned over the nexdt few summer months…so watch this space!

This interview tells you all you need to know about her.

The Fantastic 4 (Children Of Zeus)

The Fantastic 4 features four distinct artists assembled with their heat that will be guaranteed to save your ear holes from utter destruction. This weeks assembled fantastic 4:

Name: Children Of Zeus (Members:Konny Kon x Tyler Daley)
Age: Null
Place Of Birth: Manchester, England, U.K.
Song Featured: All Night
Latest Project: The Story so far…

The Children Of Zeus have been taking the North of England by storm, the Duo from Manchester impressed so much with their debut album that even the legendary Jazzy Jeff gave the album a well deserved mention on his twitter.

I shall be doing an album review on their debut project but what caught my eye with this track is how confident Konny Kon is with his flow and delivery, the lad has improved in recent years, not just that, but Tyler’s ability to smoothly set the mood for what is a modern classic of a soulful track.
