There’s no rest for the wicked dramatic. As if we’ve not had enough scenes to cringe at this year, hip-hop kept the gossip machine well-fed this week with a number of public outbursts.
 
First, Lil Wayne, in his mission to throw shade at the NBA in every way possible, rallied a number of chants at an All-Star after party in Houston; “Fuck the NBA,” “Fuck the Miami Heat,” “Fuck LeBron” and “Fuck She-Wade” were the calls. Oh, and then there’s his short but sweet comment about the ever-slandered Chris Bosh‘s wife: “I fucked Chris Bosh’s wife.”
 
That wasn’t the only butting of heads between rap and the NBA this week, though. During the Toronto Raptors — Washington Wizards game in D.C. on Tuesday night, Raptor TV announcer Matt Devlin took a few shots (out of hilarious slander or plain ignorance) at courtsider Wale. Devlin picked up on the rapper’s verbal back-and-forth with Rudy Gay, and subsequently introduced him as “local rapper Wall-Aye,” asked if anyone had “ever heard of Wall-Aye” and then sneered, “he’s not Drake, that’s for sure.” In response, Folarin immediately hit Devlin on Twitter writing “watch ur mouth” and, in an effort to save more face, walked over to the announcers’ table to let his thoughts be heard. The consensus? Wale took the L (just like his Wizards then).
 
Taking cues from Wayne, Kanye West, who is hardly one to hold his tongue, went on his own rant this weekend. During his surprise show at London’s Hammersmith Apollo Saturday night, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper made it clear that he “ain’t fucking with that Suit & Tie” (shots at Hov? He says otherwises) and fired off verbally at corporations, The Grammys and Obama. At least he wasn’t interrupting anyone else‘s rant, though.

 
Anyway, with the drama aside, we present to you our five favorite slept-on releases from the past week. Props to Eddie B, Harry Fraud, Sean Price, Pharoahe Monch, Wispers, Kosha Dillz, DJ Skizz, Lil Fame and Ill Bill this time round.

 
 

1) Eddie B – Courage (prod. by Harry Fraud)

 

 

La Musica de Harry Fraud laces his Man Bites Dog understudy Eddie B with a psychedelic-come-soulful burner for “Courage.” This definitely has us excited for their collab EP, Horsepower, which drops around SXSW time.

 
 

2) Sean Price – BBQ Sauce (Explicit) ft. Pharoahe Monch

 


Directed by: Todd Angkasuwan

 

Sean P stays having some of the funnest videos in rap. For “BBQ Sauce,” his Mic Tyson collab with Pharoahe Monch, he plays the token black guy in Mahogony Valley Hockey Club, St. Bartholomew Racquet Club and many more hilarious stereotypical white clubs.

 
 

3) DJ Skizz (feat. Lil Fame & Ill Bill – “Vio-Lence”

 

 

DJ Skizz gets assistance from Lil Fame and Ill Bill on his cold “Vio-Lence” cut, off his upcoming debut LP, BQE. These aren’t the only two features to look forward to, though; Sean Price, A.G., Torae, Roc Marciano, Masta Ace, Nature, Cormega, Tragedy Khadafi, Rah Digga, Havoc and Craig G all co-star on the project.

 
 

4) Kosha Dillz – Hangin’ Out

 


Directed by: Ricky Shabazz

 

New Jersey-born Jewish MC Kosha Dillz brings us a hilarious look at “Hangin’ Out” (the first single off his forthcoming EP), which includes toilet reading, a party in a laundromat and a movie-quality Chewbacca mask.

 
 

5) Wispers – “Feelin Like” (prod. by J. Cardim)

 

 

 

Boston up-and-comer Wispers gives us a sample of his upcoming Flight mixtape with this J. Cardim-produced heater.

 

Via: HipHopDX

 

We premiered this track this week on HipHopDX, off Wispers’ mixtape Flight. I have to say, while I’m a fan of Boston Hip-Hop, I really thought Wispers from New York. His gritty delivery, hugged by J. Cardim’s high energy production makes this song a real complete package. While the track is definitely a lyrical exercise, J. Cardim’s choice of sampling the People’s Court intro gives the cut this air of “serious business” while also remaining fun. Wispers travels through a range of emotions detailing what he’s “feelin like,” from Michael Jackson’s last performance to writing rhymes on the toilet. It’s honest, it’s over, it’s slick. And I’m all about it. I’ve never heard of Wipsers before this song, but I’m going to be checking for him now. -Kathy Iandoli (@kath3000)

Greg Grease – “Forward”

 

 

If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.

  2. CJ Fly (feat. A La $oul & Phife Dawg) – “Seek Well”
  3. Boldy James (feat. Earl Sweatshirt, Da$h & Domo Genesis) – “Reform School” (prod. by The Alchemist)
  4. Danny Brown (feat. Scrufizzer) – “Dubstep”
