New Video: JUMZ - "Pressure"



Olivia has been bugging me lately.

Just kidding.

I apologize for not coming to the Nets party BTW. I had class all day the next day. Anyway, I will say that this video is a little tough to stomach. It is real gritty, real hardcore, and real.

The song was not that bad, but the video...

Jeez.

New Music: Proph The Problem - "Warriors Theme"


Proph laced me with this dope song produced by The Kickdrums. Proph has been on here before, although I do not feel like finding the page, I will get to it eventually.

Since the Kickdrums are coming out with an EP soon from OnSmash, I feel that it would be great for me to drop this www.jacquesmorel.com exclusive.


You happy @DirtyDali?

New Music: The Kickdrums - "Just a Game"


Earlier on Twitter I was going crazy saying that they sent me an exclusive...well they did not. I am working on it @DirtyDali. Chill. Regardless, I was still emailed this DOPE song from The Kickdrums. They are probably fitting to be my favorite Producer group behind Syrenn at least.

Anyway, I will let The Kickdrums do most of the talking!

From their countless Mick Boogie & DJ Benzi mixtape appearances to their own SMASH the System, one can help but to wonder what else is in store for the Cleveland production duo. Most are unaware that they are artists as well, but Fitts and Tilla are ready to make their debut with the Just A Game EP. This is the title track and single from the upcoming project slated for release March 6th. The remix with a member of Slaughterhouse is on the way. (from OnSmash)

New Music: The Black Sunn - "Day Dreaming X Soul Liberation"


Before I go out into the windy weather to race with Honda's lighter than Paris Hilton, I am going to drop off this new music from Black Sunn from Baltimore. Dude is honestly alright. He is not going to get my cosign or anything (yet) but I will say that I enjoyed the two songs he sent me.

Drea...listen to them and tell me what you think. Besides your brother's boy, we need another artist to cosign...well a couple.

Here is what dude sent me, then you can check the songs underneath.


My name is The Black Sunn, I am a musician from Baltimore that is currently working towards building a solid fan base/buzz and I am interested in learning what must be done to obtain a feature in your blog.

New Music: Quest & Nero - "Check the Rhime" 09


Um...I will be real and say that I was not to up on Nero when I listened to his Houstantlantavegas song. It was almost...difficult to listen too. Aside from that, I have not listened to him much. However, I completely changed my mind when I peeped this song.

Here are some of the comments from 2DopeBoyz comment section...


this is really fresh.

Interview: Hip Hop Official Sits with Wale


Today we have a pretty dope interview with D.C. native Wale. We got a chance follow Wale around the night he performed at the Key Club in Hollywood. This is on some behind the scenes, exclusive access type stuff…..It was so dope that we turned it into a 2 part interview. Here’s the first part, as we ride with him from sound check at the venue to an in-store appearance at HUF skateshop on Fairfax for the release of his new t-shirt. He talks about his love for LA and gives some insight on his upcoming album. We also learn that real gangsters roll Priuses*.

I am not a fan of Wale, but I figured that we had some fans that were. Jacques only tries to please...not anger. I do not know why, but, Wale's raps are just not nice for me. I just dislike them. However I LOVE that Daniel Merriweather song..."Pot of Gold"?

Yea that is my JAM.

Check for it at the hop.

New Video: IllDoctrine - "Monkeys and Trolls"



I was sitting here thinking about this last night.

The biggest thing about it, was how NO ONE at the New York Post thought that this was racist. You and I know African Americans work There...so...how can you tell me that no one thought of this? No one thought to say...hey..that is kind of racist.

Idiots.

But he is right. Do not boycott the post. Why? Because they will not stop. Rupert Murdoch has WAY to much money to allow that.

Whose Rupert Murdoch?

Famous feat. Richie Sosa, Rochester, Bishop Brigante, Luu Breeze & Mayhem Morearty - I'm Here Pt. II


I like the cover art. I never said I posted ALL good music. The main problem I had with this song was at the chorus it felt as if I was listening to two songs at the same time. And you know how that feels.

Terrible.

Anyway, moving on, I understand that I have no idea who these people are...and you do not either. Richie Sosa was posted yesterday and he is a cool dude...

However I do not like this posse cut. The beat is disappointing because it had so much potential.

Someone sounded like Rick Ross but skinny also...thats weird.

New Artist: A'leon of Gutta Fam "Storm is Brewing"



Ok so I've been meaning to post this for the absolute longest, I get sidetracked so much. It's like I'm studying then I get a text, or I'm blogging and then I wind up watching porn on twitter. My life.. smh
Moving right along I have a brand new artist, well brand new to the internet. A'leon has been doing his thing long before this blog was up, but he hasn't been featured anywhere other then MySpace, but you know we've all been "featured" on MySpace.
So show him some internet love yall, he deserves it.

A'leon is apart of Gutta Fam coming out of Flushing Queens, believe me they are a force to be reckoned with. His brother Garcia Vega is a BEAST (he will be featured on this blog soon). There has been a void for Latinos in Hip Hop and I think artists like A'Leon, Garcia Vega, Joell Ortiz, Emilio Rojas are going to fill that void *smiles with excitement*

This song "Storm is brewing" was featured on a Dj Green Lantern mixtape, he has many other songs on his MYSPACE . The song is just dope though. I'm a sucker for a sample, I tell ya. I'm convinced his voice is made for rap.

New Music: Keelay and Zaire w/Supastition and Dj Revolution - Wake Up Show Intro


I will be real and say, I am glad to see producers getting as much love as rappers are lately. Instead of being unknown and just..not industry, lately, in the underground, I have noticed a trend of producers coming out with more songs and what not. As in they do not even need to rap to be as famous as they are.

Producing groups like Keelay & Zaire, my boy Syrenn, Teck and Karriem, and The Kickdrums come to mind.

Regardless, getting into this song, Supastition (who I have never heard of until today), kills a magnificent beat laced by K & Z.

Not to take anything away from the man but I love me some Kanye and since Cudi is traveling down Ye's lane, he has to brave that comparison.
With that said, I love this song. Yeah, I said "love", so what?
It's smooth, love Wale's flow on it makes me turn the volume up on the song and you know what that meannnnssss.

Jacquesmorel.com Listens to Drake "So Far Gone" from Jacques Morel on Vimeo.
OK readers, haters and all yall in between, if you haven't already noticed by now, this blog is not your typical Hip Hop Blog. Jacques started this with written rants on facebook and then video rants. Then he dove into the world of hip hop blogging. After many months and much success with this blog I came on to write for it. So a male and female hip hop blogging combination. Where do you see that? Thought so.
So we are bringing a little something extra to the table now. Instead of just writing out a review of a mixtape, we will review it on camera as well. This is the first attempt at it and it's rough, but its coming along. We have gotten some great feedback and some not so great feedback on it already. Tell us what you think in the comments.
(and sidenote if yall like this blog and want to see it thrive a bit more, drop a few comments here and there, let us know your out there. The chatbox is there too)

Hit the jump for the written Drake "So Far Gone" review.

October's Very Own Drizzy Drake "So far Gone" (perfect title)

Drake is known for his quotable lines so along with the review I'll hit yall with what I think is the most quotable line in each song.


"Lust for life"
This song goes into my soundtrack for life. It puts me in a trance and it allows you to get into Drake's head. He is all about reaching the top, and he has a very real chance of getting there. Good luck Drizzy.
Most quotable line "It's funny when you commmin in first but you hope that you last"

"Houstatlantavegas"
People tried to fault Drake for the singing on the album but you can't help but get lost in the song. In this song Drake goes into the "live fast die pretty" lifestyles some females have, so far gone for real. The song is beautiful.
Most quotable line: "She live in a mindset that I could never move to, until you find yourself it will be impossible to lose you"

"Successful"
All these beats Drake had in the beginning invite you into a far out place. Successful was a success. Trey Songz and him do sound similar, but they work well on a song together, no doubt. They first teamed up on "Replacement Girl". The hook is OD catchy, found myself singing it like crazy after I first heard it. Drake has a knack for incorporating superficial things and deep personal parts of his life (i.e. the part about crying with his mother.) It was dope how the beat dropped and came back with Wayne, I didn't hate his part on here.
Most quotable line: "My delivery just got me buzzin like the pizzaman"

"Let's Call it off"
Couldn't get through this song at all. Turned it off midway through. NEXT.

"November 18th"
Wooooo. I fuck with this song. That chopped and screwed vibe is damn sexy. Drake's flow is laidback but lacking nothing. One of the highlights of the song came when he explained how he feels while in Houston, gave me a vivid picture, that's some imagery I could get with. I love how Drake can go from rapping to singing in one breath, some people don't love that so much though. whatever.
Most Quotable Line: "Pussy's only pussy and I get it when I need it"

"Ignant Shit"
Aight well yall know Hov destroyed this song on his album. I wasn't surprised Drizzy picked it up, considering Jay is his idol. I didn't love Wayne on it. surprise, surprise.
Most Quotable line: "I think better when I am not sober"

"Night Off"
I love this song for reasons which I cannot disclose. Lloyd and Drizzy? Never would have put them two together but you know what? It works. Some men were put off by a man duet, but I appreciated it, you don't see that much anymore. Two singers whether male or female together on a track. It's sad, there should be more of it.
Most Quotable line "Turn the lights off but keep your heels on"

"Say what's real"
Ok. We have all heard this song a long time ago. Shit is TOUGH. Great song, so perfect for everything he was saying, Kanye did his thing on the production. Bravo.
Most Quotable line: "Cause I just seen my ex girl, standing with my next girl, standing with the girl I'm fucking right now."

"Little Bit"
You really got to see the softer side of Drake on this album, and I think that's why some of the fellas don't like it. But what yall need to understand is Drake is a glamour rapper, he doesn't bust guns, sell drugs or run hoes. He is a fantastic writer and he is also creative so take the music he puts out for what it is, he's doing his thing. Lykke Li made a fan out of me with her performance on this song, she was the perfect compliment to his voice. The concept made so much sense. Say your in love and shit falls apart... smh don't I know that.
Most quotable line: "You can teach me many things but I'm scared to learn a lesson"

"Best I ever Had"
It's a feel good song. You fellas know you have a heart, and there's always that one girl that you put on a pedestal cause you feel like she's so fly in every way. Guys always say they don't like makeup on a girl, the simpler the better, one day girls will embrace that idea. I get the whole "if she looks good in some sweats she will look good at any time" concept.
Most Quotable line "When my album drop bitches will buy it for the picture and niggas will buy it too and claim they got it for they sister"

"Unstoppable"
Dope song until Santo Gold opened her mouth, then it was ok... then Weezy opened his mouth and it was all over ...ugh Drake why !!
Most Quotable line: "Aint on the fence about it,I aint Mr.Feeny"

"Uptown"
Got that West Coast vibe to it. If you like West Coast your gonna like this, especially because of Bun B. I didn't care for it much, dope hook though.
I'm so New York baby.
... TOO MUCH WEEZY MY GOODNESS
Most quotable line: "I just dropped two black cards I call them Malcolm X and Martin Luther"

"Sooner then Later"
Been rocking to this song for a while. I love every bit of it. Say what you want. Every girl wants that one guy to open his eyes and come back for her.
Most quotable line: "What good is all the cash if it doesn't buy time and what good is being famous, if I'm never on your mind?"

"Bria's interlude"
Omarion? Voice sounded crazy good on here, that muffled sound works. Nice, very nice.
This song proves once again this tape is something to vibe to, smoke to, drink to, sex to.
Most quotable line: "I just want to touch you, I'm just so far away"

"The Calm"
The Calm is reminiscent of "Say whats real". It has that dark, spill your guts vibe. Some of these songs are so eery. What he said about his dad? whoa.
Most Quotable line: "Women need attention therefore women will complain, develop hatred for men and say that your the one to blame"

"Outro"
Exquisite. This album is art, it's creative, its beautiful. This song makes me wish I had spent more time with my keyboard, I am fascinated with the piano.

"Brand New"
Wellll ... who HASN'T heard this song, yanno? This is the song that got me interested in Drake. It's hard for me to pass it up in the iPod while it's on shuffle. So many great lines in this song, so many. I love how they tweaked it slightly. Song is so true to life.
Most quotable line: "And i hate hearing stories bout who you've been with that's when I gotta hide what I'm feeling inside so you still think I'm confident."

Overall this album gets a 8.5\10 from me. Yall can disagree all you want. It lost point for all the Weezy, and I wish he would have rapped a bit more. Other then that, I'll chalk this one up as a success. Did yall see how many downloads it has? Crazy.

New Video: The Kid Daytona feat. Outasight - "Cheers" Live @ Webster Hall


The Kid Daytona feat. Outasight - "Cheers" Live @ Webster Hall from 6th Sense on Vimeo.

This was the event that everyone was Twittering at last night. *Smacks self*. As we all now know, I live in Long Island, so heading out to rap events is tough for me. Also, I want to shout out to Exel! I am here for you if you need anything! Anyway, 6th Sense, who will be doing a video review...sooner than you think, shot this over to me. From the looks of it, it seemed dope.

And this song...is so tough.

I would come out...but an LIRR ticket is just so expensive!

New Music: Saigon - "Spit"


Shout outs to Statik for the exclusive. So I am sitting here in my basement and I see the snow outside...then I check that it is going to snow everyday that I go upstate.

Then my girl drops out of the trip.

Then I realize, I cannot go because my mother would bug out with me driving in that snow with only me and my boy.

Then I realize, I just got exclusive Saigon in my email. All is not good, but it is right in the hood. Moving on, this song from Saigon is on the new Grand Theft Auto: The Lost and the Damned EP which is dropping soon.

New Music: Harlems Cash Feat The Kid Daytona - "Goverment Remix"


Harlems Cash is over on Twitter saying that he promises he will not disappoint me with this song in anyway. I will be honest and say...he did the moment I heard Santogold on the beat.

Damn I dislike that girl. Let me just say before we get started, I do not hate HER. I have never met HER. I dislike her music though. Bah. Next right? Good.

Now the song itself is 63%beat (although at time it sounds like it was made on FruityLoops) and 37% lyrics. The main gripe I had with this song was the fact that the "Go Hard" thing is done. Dead. Finished. That was SO January + December. Bringing it back just makes me not want to download the thing.

But, Harlems Cash killed it. I like his voice. Aand if you read my blog you know how important I think that is.
