All Up In Your Face

What's good? A lot of talk has been going around the blog that some of you don't exactly love this funk kick we've been on. That's cool with me.

Every month my taste in music changes dramatically. Unfortunately, for some of you, I was all over Funky French House for like three months. For those of you who enjoyed my posts, cool, for those who didn't, that's cool too. I'm happy to say that lately I've been digging the Ed Banger sound that got me (really) involved in dance music.


Don't necessarily consider this a "best of," but rather a "What is Prez Listening To?" post. It's good, it's catchy, and it's all up in your face.

Let's start with DSL. Like Mr Flash's (which you'll hear in a bit), this track also contains French lyrics (which can be considered a "warning" to some of you). The language is beautiful, and it sounds great when thrown onto a sweet Hip Hop beat. The chorus, which is in English, is beyond incredible and keeps me coming back. This one has over 150 plays in my iTunes, so yeah, it's good.

Onto Mr (is there a period?) Flash's Champions. To be honest, this EP was so underrated and I can't believe so many haven't heard it yet. TTC's rap style is a little...whiny, but I love it. And it goes without saying, Mr Flash's beats are phenom.

Onto Uffie, yes... Uffie. It surprises me how her most famous tracks are so shitty (in my opinion). Really? Pop the Glock? I don't see it. Dismissed happens to be my favorite by her, and it's also the first track I ever owned by her. Dismissed is a 4-minute rant on bloggers, probably Ed Bangus :P. It's a bit dirty, but hey, it's Hip Hop...ish.

In the future, I'll do a more in-depth post on Busy P's Pedrophilia, but for now, here's my personal favorite from the EP (which changes like every other week). Murs does a great job with the lyrics, which of course, are suggestive. But all the credit belongs to Busy P, and the remix artists, for compiling this mind-blowingly good hip hop track.

And lastly, let's take a trip away from Ed Banger into the world of Para One. And boy, what a crazy world it is. He doesn't do much hip hop, but I fell in love with Musclor off of Epiphanie. It features TTC, the same as Mr Flash in case you forgot. This one is not your average hip hop. Most of you will not finish this song.

Enjoy, and no, this isn't funk.

I'm too lazy to do the research, but I wonder what the connection is between this:

and "Champions" is.
It's basically the same beat.

Alex said...

Mos Def stole it. Champions was released some 3 years before that one and since theres an instrumental of it, he just took it and rapped over it.

Korbi said...

Ha... That reminds of the time somewhat 1 and a half years ago when i got into EdBanger Records... good times, good times...
Thanks Prez ^^

Mike said...

i cant play two song and also donwload the songs, the last song and the mr flash´s song.prit

Alex, Mos Def didn't steal it, he bought the track from Mr.flash. He got the rights to rap over it.

Alex said...

Ah ok, then. I stand corrected.

It's so weird listening to "To Protect and Entertain" and knowing exactly what Murs is talking about. LA is a strange place.

Thanks a lot, great post! Vive TTC! Hope you know their song "Travailler (Orgasmic rmx)" (the original one is good too) and "Telephone", it's their biggest hits. Also, a little old, but still good, "De pauvres riches". Well, thank you and hello from Montreal!

To be honest, I like the Mos Def version a lot more.

Ning said...

I find Uffie's popularity incomprehensible. "First Love" is tolerable, but the rest of her catalog is absolute garbage. Of course, "Tthhee Ppaarrttyy" is brilliant, but all credit there belons to Joosteece.

i think mr flash produced a few tracks for mos def

Adam said...

I find uffie to be the worst part of the whole ed banger crew. You have all these talented artists... then you have them all making music for uffie for her to slur her "rap" all over... Now did she only get signed because she is fucking feadz?

Alex said...

She probably got signed because she was fucking Feadz, but now she is married and pregnant, whose father is another guy, not Feadz.

What a mistake on Busy P's part :P

But if I'm not mistaken... this next EP from her in February will be her last, no?

Alex said...

Yeah, one out on Feb 1st and then the album on Valentine's Day.

Anyone know where I can get the acapella for 'To Protect and Entertain'? Hit me up at smallchampion@gmail.com and I'll get you back for sure!

Those 'lyrics' by Murs are terrible.

Not a good Hip Hop track, at all. However, good effort on Busy P and all the remixers.
