Hip-Hop’s media is all screwed up. Their stupidity and opinions never surprise me. First MTV releases that “list” of the hottest emcees in the game, which was really a sham. (Check My Article On That). Now XXL drops their anticipated Freshmen Cover. For those of you who don’t know, the XXL Magazine does a cover story about the 10 artists expected to blow up during that year. Here we are going into March & I see this crap. The list was actually okay to me. A lot of the people on their have been grinding for a while to build their names (i.e. Future, Kid Ink, French Montana, Don Trip, MGK, Hopsin, Iggy Azalea). But then I saw the last name, Roscoe Dash. Roscoe Dash has been around for some time now. He dropped the record “All The Way Turned Up” (with Travis Porter & Soulja Boy) when I was in high school. I’ve been out of high school for 3 years. WHY IS THIS DUDE ON THE LIST?! Nobody is checking for Roscoe Dash. His autotune singing hooks are played out, he hasn’t had a radio hit in about 2 years and he’s not even buzzing right now. The Atlanta native is a great hook man, but nobody is checking for his hooks anymore. Personally, I thought Roscoe’s 15 minutes were up right after that “Oh My” record dropped with DJ Drama. Other than that, the list is pretty straight. I’ve never listened to Danny Brown & I probably won’t. Never heard of Macklemore & don’t think I want to hear him. Congrats to the celebs on their & thanks XXL for proving that a lot of these music critics need to lose their job. OH MY !
Let me introduce Don Trip to some of you people who are sitting with the puzzled face. Don Trip is a rapper from the Tennessee area. He is mostly known for his work with fellow Tennessee rapper & former Cash Money signee, Starlito. Trip also made a name for himself after a studio performance of his single “Letter To My Son,” which is a heart-felt song describing how he can’t be around his son, due to relationship issues with his ex, although he wants to. With all his recent success, becoming a youtube sensation and getting Cee-Lo Green on the mastered version of “Letter To My Son,” Trip is prepping for a Gangsta Grillz with DJ Drama. Everybody knows once Drama is working with you, you’re a somebody. Don teams up with Atlanta superstar 2 Chainz for this “gutta” banger. The song is about being in love with every mans favorite thing from a female. Pretty dope. Look out for more Don Trip and don’t let this song turn you off. For a southern rapper, he’s pretty nice.
