DJ Khaled’s latest single gathers together some of the biggest names in hip-hop, and the result is “Hold You Down,” a song more R&B than Khaled’s typical collaborations. The track is off his upcoming album, I’ve Changed a Lot.
Entertainment Weekly, a site known for their no holds barred journalistic approach, recently asked DJ Khaled “what exactly do you do?” (Finally). He replied:
“It’s not a lot of people, really. DJ Khaled’s obviously one of the biggest DJ’s in the world. DJ Khaled’s also one of the biggest producers in the world. DJ Khaled is also one of the biggest executives in the world. DJ Khaled’s also one of the biggest A&R’s in the world. DJ Khaled also has a management company called We the Best. Also CEO of his own record company called We the Best. A publishing company called We the Best. DJ Khaled is a brand. DJ Khaled is a mogul.”
Do any of these DJ Khaled’s not speak in the third person? Maybe they could give a more satisfying answer.
For his second single, Mike Will Made-It called upon his talented group of friends: Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and Future. K. Dot and Weezy each contribute rap verses while Future (the original) sings on the hook about hustling to make enough money to “Buy The World.”
I know it sounds fancy, but I would be careful about this purchase since lately it seems like the world is a real fixer-upper. Maybe check with customer service about the return policy first?
…and if you find that number, would you let me know? I have some issues with the humidity in the summer that someone should have to answer for.
Future’s latest single, “I Won,” features him and Kanye rapping about their trophy
wives fiancees, Ciara and Kim Kardashian, respectively.
It must be flattering for Ciara to be in a group with Kim K, since Ciara is a platinum selling artist who has released five studio albums, twenty-seven singles and has won dozens of awards, including a Grammy, and Kim is, you know… very pretty.
With summer just around the corner, Future’s latest song, “Covered N Money” offers an effective alternative to sunscreen. Not the cleanest, but fabulous nonetheless.
Honest is set to be released April 22nd.
Future released a fifth single from his forthcoming album, Honest. The track features a bass-heavy beat by Mike WiLL Made It and plenty of Pusha T drug euphemisms, so it’s either about the dope game, or what it’s like to be Justin Bieber’s chauffeur. HEYOOO!
Thank you, thank you. I’ll be here all week. Try the veal.
It’s not even Tuesday, and it has already been a big week for Future who proposed to his girlfriend, Ciara, on Sunday while celebrating her 28th birthday. Future and Ciara have been dating for a year, and no wedding date has been set yet.
I’m glad things are going so well for Future personally, because the lead single from his upcoming album, Honest, sounds like a less-exciting version of “U.O.E.N.O.” …I’m just being honest.
Rick Ross recently released the first single to his sixth studio album, MasterMind. [Why did I write “studio” there? As if Rick Ross has live albums – Rick Ross: Live at Red Rocks, (it’s acoustic though, just Rick and his guitar.) ]
Anyway, in this latest song, Rick and Future lament that they, “Can’t play no games with these ni**as, they’re so fake and they phony, Can’t play no games with these bitches, they treat me like I’m Tony.”
What games do you think those two wanna play? Charades? Boggle? Red Rover? I bet it’s Pictionary — nothing makes you wanna mow people down with a machine gun Tony Montana-style like playing Pictionary. That’s clearly a lawnmower, Ted!
What this song lacks in substance, it more than makes up for in execution. Future’s use of short, jagged lyrics to illustrate “karate chop” is impeccable. Future appears especially talented when it gets to Casino’s verse, who can’t perform the staccato rhyming to save his life.
DJ Khaled rounded up T.I., Lil Wayne, and Future for his latest, “Bitches and Bottles.” Ironically, this is the same name as my dog-sitting/day care establishment, coming soon…
I admire Future’s courage to pursue a music career post-tracheotomy. That’s why his voice is always so wacky, right? Check him out in Pusha T’s “Pain,”…
