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.
