Yay or Nay: The 100s

Typically, these “Yay or Nay” columns revolve around newer acts but this week I wanted to try something a little different. Here we have the 100s. A bay area rapper who has been around for a while. I’m more getting a “lay of the land” by asking you what you think of him. He’s definitely not for everyone. He’s basically on some straight up pimp shit. His music will not make you think. It will not make you a better person. It does, however, make me kinda wish I could be in california right now , smoking weed (And I don’t even smoke weed). It’s heavy on the funk (particularly the Zapp/roger troutman type) and smooth as fuck. Honestly, liking this stuff really challenges my inner new yorker but this is just some fun music to vibe out to.
So, what do you think? Check out some videos. I have a feeling this is one of those “I love it or I hate it” kinda situations. One thing is for sure, he’s got the best head of hair in the game.

So, what do you think?

  1. Pretty sure you’ve seen this, but just in case… I think it’s really dope and deserves all the shine it can get. His last two albums have been great. These videos are from The Ocean. The Veil is good (and free) as well. Yay or Nay worthy?

    • That first video is really dope. He’s good. I like the beats. i dunno if i ride for him enough to do a “yay or nay?”
      He seems like a rapper I would have loved 8 years ago but , nowadays, just isn’t my steeze. Regardless, I’ll definitely give him more of a listen.

    • Luckily that doesn’t factor into my opinion on his music whatsoever. This shit>>>>>>>most of the stuff similar i hear from the bay. And that’s coming from an impartial judge with no stake in bay area gangster rap.
      I’d also like to point out I simply said he was from the bay. I never made claims to him being a hometown hero. It’s 2014. where your from isn’t what it used to be.

  2. Not mad at it, but it doesn’t do anything for me either. The beats are really wack and not at all “funk”-influenced until “10 Freaky Hoes”, which is actually the only one of these songs I can do anything with. He’s no Rappin’ 4-Tay, that’s for sure..
