This is Iggy Azalea's new single 'Work'. It's a catchy little ditty. A strong contender for worst song of all time.

Here's the official video. I very much doubt this is Safe For Work by the way. Unless you work for VEVO...

I'm so sorry. Gonna have to take a bath and lie down mate.

My favourite track of the year so far. There's a rumour that Nas is gonna feature on the official release. Exciting!

Reminiscent of later Wu-Tang shit, but not measuring up.

I get down with Wu-Tang, its cinematic, its entertaining. The old RZA produced shit has the beats I like (grimy, minimalistic).

But I basically look for shit that either has a message and/or is mad complex. I appreciate abstract lyricism and rhyming acrobatics. Scope this track off the El-P's last album that came out last year. The beats aren't necessarily up my alley personally, but you can't deny this is some forward thinking shit. These verses get murdered. Its that complex abstract shit that is out there, but you gotta look for it. Unless you're content to hear weak rhymes about some guy and his crew and his money and status spit lackluster over corny ass beat. Fuck all that. That shit is a dime a dozen.



P.S. eXquire DESTROYS that verse!!!

I am really looking forward to El-P and Killer Mike's album/project Run The Jewels.

There's a clip here: http://www.spin.com/articles/el-p-kille ... -duo-album

Some top posts there. My personal highlight was the Foreign Legion tune.

Kitty Pryde seems decent. She'll probably go platinum.

Here's my new jam. DJ Wax On remix of Regulate. Can't beat a bit of Nate Dogg...

Was there ever a Lardpony x DJ Wax On collaboration?

I'd be intrigued to see what that would sound like!

Some years ago my cousin and I recorded a twee pop cover of the Thizzelle Dance by Mac Dre.

https://soundcloud.com/kwame-gunn: This guy "liked" one of my songs on soundcloud. Good to know that twee is loved by the rap community.
