I think I’ll try something a little different this time.
So, here was have a new song. It’s produced by the Alchemist and features a few very popular newer rappers and a few that are kinda whatever (in the eyes of most people). first and foremost, we got Earl. Back from his samoan vacation. Pretty much anything he’s on nowadays is going to be idolized or put under a microscope because of what an impact he made 2 years ago with his solo EP and the lofty expectations we’ve all set for him..
Then we got Action Bronson, who’s been keeping pretty busy. I’m a fan of Bronson and I appreciate the dudes drive to get on all sorts of tracks. He does songs with thugged out dudes, old school veterans, weirdo’s like Riff Raff and pretty much anyone else he happens to be down with. I applaud that mind set and , while it doesn’t always work, it does make for interesting music.

Then we got the slowly improving Domo Genesis and Vince Staples, who I’m pretty clueless about.
So, put them altogether on this bare, light in the drums (which is the style right now, kids) Alchemist track and what do you get?
Personally, I think it’s decent. I don’t think the wheel is being reinvented and I don’t think everyone on this track bought their A material but it’s certainly not bad. Definitely a song that , when it pops up n my Ipod, I will listen to.
So, I’ve been reading some peoples reactions to this song online (which have ranged from people masturbating in public to people claiming that Earl is done and cursing the song like it killed their first born son) and I’m curious, what do you think?
You know what that means. POLL!!!!!

Glory By Domo Genesis

While Tyler The Creator has been doing songs with The Game and Pusha T and Earl is Samoa polishing Bamboo chutes, the Odd future B-team has slowly been improving on the low. Both Domo Genesis and Hodgy Beats (mellowhype) have been putting out some decent material since they dropped their debut albums. To be honest, I wasn’t crazy about either of them when they came out. Both albums had a few good songs but it just sounded like some typical underground rap shit that wasn’t separating itself from the kinda stuff Tyler would be dissing in his songs. However, lately, it seems like they’re hitting their stride. Hodgy dropped this joint

and I was like “Oh shit!”
Then Domo was featured on this:

Which peaked my interest.
That leads us to the linked song above (which is different from the song in the video). It’s subtle but the simplicity works well with domo’s whole “I rap about weed and whatever” angle. At first , I didn’t think much of it but I’ve found myself going back to it lately. So, here it is for you to judge. Enjoy.
