Friday means only one thing at BAMM.tv (well, actually, Friday means a lot of things, but for the purposes of this blog entry, let’s all just play along) – time to unveil another one of our BAMM.tv Team Playlists, in which one of our esteemed BAMMers shares their top five tunes of the moment.
This week: Wirjo Hardjono, Communications Administrator …
“Switch (The Science Project)” (Fahrenheit 1/15, Part 2: Revenge of the Nerds, 2006) – Lupe Fiasco
After making a great first impression on me with “Kick Push”, Lupe Fiasco now takes us on a tour through different rap styles and subjects, showing off his knowledge and the depth of rap.
“Made You Die – Trayvon Martin Tribute” (n/a, 2012) – Yasiin Bey, Dead Prez, and mikeflo
Politics of rap: after the death of Trayvon Martin, Dead Prez, Mikeflo and Yasiin Bey pick up the microphone to let the world hear where they are coming from, representing the thoughts and feelings of many living that life. Perhaps the most ‘real’ and most important use of the art form?
“Hands On The Wheel” (Feat. A$AP Rocky) (Habits & Contradictions, 2012) – ScHoolboy Q
The smooth sound and smooth flow of A$AP Rocky and ScHoolboy Q. Part of the new hip hop generation taking it back to the streets. Honest, personal hip-hop with a dark atmosphere.
“Big Spender (Feat. A$AP Rocky)” (n/a, 2012) – Theophilus London
A$AP Rocky returns in Big Spender rapping over one of the best hip hop beats I’ve heard in some time. Big, powerful, pure perfection.
“Hot Cheetos & Takis” (n/a, 2012) – Y.N.RichKids
Pure fun, go big or go home. It’s all about the hot Cheetos and Takis.
