2017 Recap: Payroll Giovanni’s “How We Move It” Was The Party Song Of The Year

Published

on

Payroll Giovanni recently signed to Def Jam Records, a move well-earned after years of putting in work with Doughboyz Cashout. Perhaps what finally pushed him over was the quality music he released this year, one song, in particular, is the exciting “How We Move It” featuring HBK, Young Roc, and B Ryan. The track reimagines the party classic “How We Do It” by Montell Jordan under the guise of modern-day trap, utilizing the song’s conventions to create something wholly spectacular. The song’s chorus and first verse, sung by vocalist B Ryan capture the spirit of the original and give way to Payroll’s standout verse. Both HBK and Roc provide great additions to the song’s already great standing.

The video helps to translate the party feel of the track in an excellent manner. It’s one continuous party, with homage to Kid n Play and other classics contained inside. Everyone’s having a great time, and that’s all that matters. Combining this with the song helps to showcase something with uber potential. It’s probably why the video has 587,000 views on YouTube and continues to climb, only five months in.

Check out the video for “How We Move It” below.

Rest In Peace to Doughboy Roc.

Spotlight: Asian Doll’s “BLESS” is a holiday delight

Published

on

Christmas of 2017 will always be remembered for being the day that Lil Wayne released Dedication 6, the latest chapter in the ever-growing mixtape series. But if you look closer into the Hip Hop atmosphere, something else came out; something more contemporary and more-likely to resonate with people looking for exciting new music. That release is “BLESS,” a single entrenched in the holiday spirit that channels all the signs of a good time in the studio.

Produced by BankrollGotIt, the “Deck The Halls” sample contains the joyous spirit of the holiday combined with elements of trap that make it a jolly listen. Asian Doll’s nonsensical flow is the icing on the cake, creating a more than appetizing listen that transcends a Christmas-only treat – it’s suitable for any time of the year.

Check out “BLESS” below.

Spotlight: “Choppa Sound” by Snap Dogg proves he’s a rockstar over trap beats

Published

on

When the term “guilty pleasure” comes to mind, cheesecake and ice cream are two common items associated with it. These things are items that we aren’t supposed to consume great amounts of, but they’re so good that we can’t help it. Snap Dogg’s “Choppa Sound” is one of our guilty pleasures – as wild as it sounds, it’s something we can’t turn off. It’s a lot of things; nihilistic, angry, and threatening, but it’s also very good. In music, that’s what matters right?

The production on the track moves along at a breakneck pace, causing it to sound somewhat disorientating outside of car speakers. This messiness seems intentional; the song itself is about loving gun sounds that are messy. Under this guise, the song is brilliant. It captures the unpredictability and lack of uniformity that comes with gunfights and weapons in general. Snap Dogg’s rhymes add the icing on the cake; he goes in hard. There’s no wonder why he is rising at the rapid rate that he is.

The visual for the track features more guns than Ammunation from Grand Theft Auto. And that’s the point; the video – and song itself for that matter – isn’t the most thoughtful song on the planet. It’s music made by someone from the streets, for the streets. It happens to be a very well put together track that checks all the boxes of becoming a mainstream hit in the near future.
