hip hop - yeah it can be good music too

Hey fools - The Good Doctor chiming in. Got some new(ish) hip hop joints for y'all.

First off, Kanye and Perajok dropped The G.O.O.D. Ass Mixtape a few weeks ago (check it out on datpiff here). Almost all of it is stuff that you've probably heard in other places - the very excellent "See Me Now" from ye featuring Beyonce and Charlie Wilson, a few dull new Cudi tracks like Mr Rager and Wylin Cause I'm Young (notable exception being "Erase Me" ft Kanye), the fantastic "Live Fast, Die Young" from Rick Ross, and some electro type stuff from "Young Forever" collaborator Mr Hudson (hit up "Love Never Dies"). Honestly the rest is pretty forgettable but at least worth checking out

Monster, from an apparent dream team (Yeezy, Jay, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj...and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver), also dropped last week. The beat is totally underwhelming, Ross's verse is way too short, Jay's is decent, but the track is pretty much saved by Mrs. Minaj. I've never been a huge fan of hers but she's got me now.

Finally - some of Duval's finest. Jacksonville-based clique Young Starz Entertainment is slowly but surely starting to mature in the craft. If you're willing to sift through some garbage you'll find the occasional gem, particularly the guilty pleasure that is "Bounce That Azz" from Mr. Wesss feat Teddy B (click here for dl).

And i'm out for now - back later with some more current stuff.
