Music: Busta Rhymes – Girlfriend Feat. Tory Lanez & Vybz Kartel

There’s no denying the fact that Busta Rhymes is a legend in the game. While he doesn’t generally get the same level of props as many of the obvious GOAT contenders, the fact remains that Bus-A-Bus has been a mainstay in the game for nearly two decades. Plus, dude has worked with pretty much everybody, a boast which can now include talented new artists like Canadian rapper Tory Lanez. Now, after teasing the drop a few days back, Busta’s latest single “Girlfriend” has surfaced online.

The track is clearly a homage to Busta’s Jamaican roots; if the feature from dancehall icon Vybz Kartel didn’t give it away, then Busta’s cadence and patois usage should do the trick. Over a breezy and summer-inspired beat from Rockwilder, Busta showcases some of his oft-imitated flow, pulling it back in favor of a catchy melody. It’s definitely new musical territory from Busta, who seems to have gravitated toward the music of his heritage in his older years, not unlike the curious case of Snoop Lion.

With solid additions from Tory and Vybz, who name drops pretty much all of hip-hop’s most notorious dimes, “Girlfriend” emerges as a simple, fun, and party-friendly single. While Busta die-hards may long for the rapper’s peak years, it’s clear that the man is enjoying the process discovering a new sound, and to be honest, the end result is pretty solid.

Unfortunately, Busta fans will still have a while to wait before the rapper’s next album, which remains in announcement limbo. Still, Tory Lanez has been putting in work, carving out a place in hip-hop’s new wave. In fact, Tory fans should go check out our extensive ranking of his entire mixtape discography. While you do that, be sure to vibe out to the Jamaican flavor courtesy of Rockwilder, Busta, Tory & Vybz.

Music: Snoop Dogg – Dis Finna Be A Breeze

Snoop Dogg drops his latest single “Dis Finna Be A Breeze.”

Snoop Dogg is a man of many hats within music alone. His reggae side is Snoop Lion and when he’s on the turntables he’s “DJ Snoopadelic.” While he switches monikers for his various styles, it’s often Snoop Dogg that’s the most recognizable. As he’s been making music for over 25 years at this point, the Long Beach rapper continues to make music and it seems that his celebrity has stopped him from making music for his fans, but for himself ultimately. His most recent efforts have found Snoop in a more inspired creative space, that he seemingly continues to push. With the release of his album Neva Left, many praised the rapper for getting back into the “Snoop Doggy Dogg” phase in the early 90’s. Today, he comes back with his latest single “Dis Finna Be A Breeze” with an intro from Instagram comedian, @hahadavis.

“Dis Finna Be A Breeze” is a dope loosie from the Doggfather. While he comes through with his chilled out, deep voice, the beat is reminiscent of the G-Funk era. The beat was produced by My Guy Mars, Niggarachi (who is actually rumored to be Snoop Dogg’s producer name) and Franco Valli. The beat has that high-pitch funk synth that played a pivotal role in the west coast sound in the early 90’s with some bass that really kicks. It’s a smooth, trunk-rattling joint with Snoop Dogg giving some hard bars.

It’s another dope effort from the Doggfather. As he continues making music, there’s no doubt that he keeps evolving but there’ll always be something about hearing Snoop Dogg stray away from commercial music to tap into his roots that will keep his fans anticipating new music. With “Dis Finna Be A Breeze” out, it’s another example of why Snoop Dogg will always be a legend in the rap community.
