Here’s the Friday Funk for day 96 of 2018:
Cardi B – Invasion of Privacy
It’s been quite a run for Cardi B. Her biggest hits Bodak Yellow and Bartier Cardi did numbers on the charts last year and she managed to keep her buzz going by getting engaged to 1/3rd of the Migos and recently announced her pregnancy. Now her first studio album is finally here and it will be interesting to see what the queen’s got in store for us. Salute!
Dave East – God Bless The Summer (Feat. Vado)
Summer is just around the corner and two of Harlem’s finest decided to link up and bring the heat. Vado and Dave East drop a whole lot of bars on this one over a smooth easy beat.
“Try to manage your vibe energy, a fake friend could do more damage than five enemies…”
Sabrina Claudio – All To You
PSA: Can somebody out there get me Sabrina’s number? I’m tryna see something real quick…
If you don’t know Sabrina Claudio, well…now you know. Her hit single Belong To Me is a must listen and her latest single seems to follow the trend. All To You expresses her surrender to the moment and I might be more in love with her after the video.
Eric Bellinger – Eazy Call
Eric was not shy to let the disses fly against Tory Lanez last week on his track YIKES!. He told us this was on the way, so hopefully the project includes some quality music as a follow up to that quality diss. For the vocalist and writer that he is, I wouldn’t expect otherwise.
A$AP Rocky – A$AP Forever (Feat. Moby)
Rocky is back on his music tip and A$AP Forever seems like the hit we’ve been waiting for after some less than impressive singles released earlier in the year. Also have to commend the video director for these dope visuals.
PARTYNEXTDOOR – I Need More
Another leaked Party track. It doesn’t seem to be him releasing the tracks since he hasn’t promoted it at all on his pages, but this may be indicative that there is a new Party project coming soon, at least we hope. A bit of Young Thug cadence on the verse in this one, but overall a PND sounding song.
Slim Jxmmi & Swae Lee – Chanel (Feat. Pharrell)
Gearing up for the three disc project from Rae Sremmurd, Slim Jxmmi drops his next single Chanel which enlists Swae Lee and Pharrell. The song consists of taking a beautiful woman to Chanel.
Belly – Maintain (Feat. Nav)
Belly’s another artist that’s gearing up to release his next project. Nav and Belly talk about their come up and how they’re just trying to stay in the game with their new found stardom.
Wale – Negotiations
Continuing where he left off this year, Free Agent Wale is back with another lyrical bombastic track.
