FIVE SONGS TO LISTEN TO, CURATED BY TOMMY KRUISE

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Tommy Kruise is an OG Canadian beat maker. Hailing from outside of Montreal, he's a master of the chopped and screwed and channels Southern rap like it's nobody's bussiness. He's going on tour with RL Grime and Branchez and will be in St. Louis November 15th at the Old Rock House. I figured now would be a great time to ask him if he could tell us 5 songs he's been banging recently and boy did he deliver. All but the last one have music videos too! Check out his new EP FÊTE FOREIGN (free DL) and his 5 songs below. 

 

1. VINCE STAPLES – BLUE SUEDE

"STAPLES HAS BEEN DELIVIRING A LOT OF DIFFERENT STUFF OVER THE YEARS. LAST EP HE DROPPED WAS MORE BOOM BAP, RELAX TYPE SHIT BUT THIS HERE IS A TRUE BANGER. BEAT IS RIDICULOUS, MAKES ME WANNA BUY A NEW CAR AND CRASH IT THE SAME DAY.GO PEEP HELL CAN WAIT ITS DEFINITELY SOMETHING"
 
 
2.  YUNG GLEESH – SINCE WHEN 

" NOW IF YOU KNOW ME YOU ALREADY KNOW IM A HUGE GLEESH FAN. FOR THOSE WHO DONT KNOW HIM HE IS THE MICHAEL JACKSON TYPE DANCER FEATURED IN THE NEW ASAP ROCKY MULTIPLY VIDEO. SINCE WHEN IS THE STREET BANGER OF THE FALL. CLEANSIDE FINEST 3 FEATURES NOTHING BUT BANGERS. IF YOU SKIP A SONG THEN MAYBE THIS ARTICLE HERE IS NOT FOR YOU. "
 
 
3. BOLDY JAMES – CRUNCHIN'

" DETROIT PURE FLAME. BOLDY JAMES SPITS ONLY REAL SHIT. THIS AINT NO FAST FOOD RAP TYPE RAP OVER HERE. IF YOU LIKE THIS TRACK I SUGGEST YOU VISIT HIS OLD MIXTAPES, NOTHING BUT FIRE. "
 
 
4. MBE – HAVE A PARTY

" NOTHING IS MORE AWESOME THAN A GROUP OF KIDS DANCING WITH FRIENDS AND HAVING THE TIME OF THEIR LIFE. CHICAGO BOP SCENE IS EXTRAORDINAIRE AND THIS IS ONE OF THE STREET BANGERS. SEE HOW MANY TIMES I SAID BANGERS IN THIS ARTICLE, I'M NOT HERE TO TALK ABOUT SLEEPERS. "
 
 
5. GUCCI MANE – SO HOODY

" THIS SONG DOESN'T FEATURE A VIDEO BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THAT GUCCI IS GONE. ITS EASY TO KNOW IF SOMEONE IS COOL OR NOT DEPENDING OF HIS STANCE IF HE LIKES GUCCI MANE OR NOT. IF YOU DONT FUCK WITH GUCCI MANES CATALOG THAN WE CANT REALLY BE FRIENDS. THE ONLY REASON ALL THIS MUSIC AND ALL OF YOUR FAVOURITE ARTISTS EXISTS IS GUCCI. SO HOODY IS PRODUCED BY ZAYTOVEN AND IF YOU KNOW LA FLARE THAN YOU KNOW ZAY + GUCCI = BANGERRRRRR "
