She’s Too Young for You, Bro

On August 10th, 2015, Kylie Jenner turned 18 years old.  And now, three weeks later, she’s flaunting some PDA in Tyga’s new music video for his trying-hard-to-be-tough-and-sexual-anthem “Stimulated.”

The video features Tyga penning lyrics and rolling a joint in a beautiful home- you know, basic rapper tasks- when a barely legal Kylie Jenner steps out of a lime green sports car in stilettos (I guess I was a lame 18 year-old).  While still pretending to read his freshly written verses out loud, Tyga raps: “I’m stimulated/ I’m at the bank, I’m penetratin’/ I’m puttin’ in, I’m penetratin’/ I’m gettin’ big, I’m stimulated.”  Nope, I do not want to hear about  what Tyga may be “depositing” in Kylie Jenner’s “bank.”  Tyga continues, “They say she young, I should’ve waited/ She a big girl, dog when she stimulated.”  Okay, stop, that’s just weird.  So basically, Tyga’s saying she’s young, but man, when she’s turned on, she’s pretty much an adult.  The rest of the music video features some pretty PG-rated PDA, like hugging and piggyback rides (thank God).  The two have been pretty mum about their alleged relationship — until now (aka until Kylie was officially considered legal).

Throughout the song, Tyga samples a trance song by Robert Miles.  The song title?  “Children.”

Stay tuned,

“When I look back I might be mad that I gave this attention”

UPDATE, 8/3:

Yes, this beef nonsense is still continuing.

To basically bury Meek Mill in even more shit, Drake opened up his set at OVO Fest with “Charged Up” and “Back to Back” while a stream of Meek memes was projected behind him.  Memes varied from a participation award entitled to Meek and his diss track “Wanna Know” to a meme of Meek as a contestant on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” with the question “What is the Pink Print Tour?” (LOL).  Also, earlier in the day, Drake was allegedly wearing a “Free Meek Mill” t-shirt.

Meek Drake

So, basically, I’d say this is equivalent to a K.O. for Meek.

Stay tuned,

UPDATE, 7/30:

Meek Mill has finally responded to Drake with his own diss track (if you can even call it that) “Wanna Know,” which was produced by Jhalil Beats and Swizz Beats.  The track features a sample from WWE wrestler the Undertaker’s theme song as well as Quentin Miller, Drake’s alleged ghostwriter, who sings the chorus of “Know Yourself.”  I’ll be completely honest and admit that for the rest of the song, I couldn’t understand what Meek is actually saying.  And really, I’m a little over all of this so I couldn’t really be bothered to even listen to this track for a second time.  From the little I could actually understand, Meek referenced old rapper beef in the last line of the track (“This that Ja Rule shit and 50 cent”).

“Wanna Know” features unintelligible, angry mumbling and a whole lot of forgettable weak one-liners.

Drake: 3, Meek: 0, Whataburger: 1000

ORIGINAL:

And the Drake/Meek Mill catfight continues.

During Saturday’s installment of “OVO Sound Radio,” Drake premiered “Charged Up,” the first diss track to dispute Meek’s claim that Drizzy used a ghostwriter for his verse on Meek’s song, “R.I.C.O.”  drakeMeek called the diss track “baby lotion soft,” and I can’t say I completely disagree with him.  However, earlier today, Drake released “Back to Back Freestyle,” Drake’s second diss track aimed directly at Meek, on October’s Very Own Soundcloud.  After giving “Back to Back Freestyle” a listen (or like 10), “Charged Up” seems like a warm-up in comparison.

Although Drake has been playing the “I’m-so-legend-I-don’t-need-to-fight-back” card (“When I look back I might be mad that I gave this attention/ But it’s weighing heavy on my conscience/ And fuck, you left me with no options”), shots have absolutely been fired with “Back to Back Freestyle.”  Screen Shot 2015-07-29 at 4.34.16 PMAttacking Meek’s current position as an opener/warm-up/hypeman act on his girlfriend Nicki Minaj’s “Pinkprint Tour,” Drake raps: “You love her, then you gotta give the world to her/ Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?/ I know that you gotta be a thug for her/ This ain’t what she meant when she told you to open up more.”  Not only that, but Drake attacks Meek for starting beef via social media (#millennials): “Yeah, trigger fingers turn to Twitter fingers/ Yeah, you gettin’ bodied by a singin’ nigga.”

And Drizzy doesn’t stop there.  The accompanying artwork to the track is a photo of Toronto Blue Jay’s Joe Carter from the 1993 World Series when the Blue Jays beat the Philadelphia Phillies.  Everyone knows Drake is from the 6.  Where’s Meek from?  Philly.

Looks like Meek’s gonna be needing Jimmy’s wheelchair after that shot.

10 Best Songs to Make You Feel Badass

Some days you need to be reminded that inside of you lives a rebellious badass that’s tatted up, in a motorcycle gang (what’s up, Jax Teller?), and only wears combat boots.  Or some days you just need a killer playlist to make you strut with your head held high.  Whatever day it may be, grab your leather jacket and wayfarers, and bump this percussion and guitar riff-heavy playlist to feel like the ultimate badass:

Michelle badass1. Nasty Freestyle by T-Wayne.  If you’re hopping out of a Porsche, you are most likely a badass.

2. Jungle by X Ambassadors, Jamie N Commons.  If that drum-clap pattern doesn’t make you feel tough, nothing will.

3. Sweet Talk by Kito, Reija Lee.  Currently signed to Mad Decent, the producer/singer duo originally from Perth, Australia delivers a perfect badass song with their blend of bass and vocals.  Aside from being featured in Victoria’s Secret 2013 Spring/Summer commercial, “Sweet Talk” was also sampled in Trinidad James’ single, “Females Welcomed.”

4. Elephant by Tame Impala.  Perfect for: the groovy badass.  Maintaining a classic rock guitar riff throughout the song, Tame Impala gives their take on “badass” by mixing it up with rhythmic retro/futuristic shifts in sound.

5. Howlin’ For You by The Black Keys.  Picture this: you and your squad walking strutting in one of those typical formations — preferably in slow motion.

6. Black Skinhead by Kanye West.  Can this be played every time I’m about to walk in a room to get people absolutely pumped for my arrival?!

7. Believe by The Bravery.  *Cue an exploding building in the background as you walk in slow motion.*

8. Bad Girls by M.I.A.  THIS ONE’S FOR ALL THE BAD BITCHES.  “My chain hits my chest/ When I’m banging on the dashboard” — I don’t wear a chain and I don’t bang on the dashboard (that’s rude and annoying), but I identify so much with this song.

9. 99 Problems by Hugo.  Speaking of bitches, here’s a catchy cover of Jay Z’s “99 Problems” — the banjo and tambourine combo makes me want to duel someone Western style and trade in the combat boots for some tough cowboy boots.

10. Wicked Ones by Dorothy.  What makes this song so badass is its wicked heartbeat and raspy vocals.  “This night ain’t for the faint of heart, ‘cause the faint of heart gon’ fall apart,” sings Dorothy, obviously prepping you for whatever badass activity you’re up to.

Stay tuned,
