The song that everyone knows now that Drake sampled it gets its own video, though there aren’t any shots of Sampha himself, other than playing the keys. Fantastic song though. Feel free to put this on loop. Forever.
First track I’ve really enjoyed from Drake’s OVO signing, PARTYNEXTDOOR. Definitely prefer when he rhymes in a more normal voice than that Future influenced warble, but I dig it. Visuals didn’t hurt either…
LOOOOOOL…Drizzy’s been playing too much Call of Duty lately. This song is still my ish though.
Happy #NWTS day! Go cop that.
While by definition, I always enjoy the music we play on SNSS, this week’s episode featured a ton of really great records, including two that are currently fighting out an epic “favorite song of the moment” battle in my head: The Internet’s “Dontcha” (Pharrell is somewhere seething that he didn’t make this) vs. Drake ft. Jhene Aiko’s “From Time” (I challenge you to find a better hook this year). Truthfully, we could have played those 2 songs on loop for the whole show and it would have been great, but we went ahead and hit you with other new gems from Pusha T, Danny Brown, Flatbush Zombies, Freddie Gibbs, Tanya Morgan, Sampha, BANKS, The Weeknd, Devin The Dude, Majid Jordan, Janelle, Monae, Chance The Rapper, Psychic Mirrors, and more.
Check this one out y’all, hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Not sure I’ll ever really need to watch this video again, but the song is mean. Drizzy!
*books ticket to Beach Blast*
Kendrick’s album was initially hailed as a potential classic and it continues to get better with age. I speculated that he had it in him back in this post for the “Tammy’s Song” video, and I think he’s pulled it off. good kid, m.a.a.d. city. 5 mics for me.
I love that Drizzy had everyone thinking this was a(n attempt at a) hard, street record and then when the video drops, we see it open with kids playing soccer and extended comedic scenes with his boys. Even when it gets a little darker at the end, it’s still centered around laughs with his homies. Be careful with putting the whole team on though, Drizzy. Go ask Hammer.
Also, this video solidifies Drake as the unequivocal king of unintentionally hilarious video faces. He’s gotta be in on it at this point, right?
Right in time for the cold weather…aka…cuffing season. Choose up!
Meek and Drizzy team up for the visuals to the current single off Dreamchasers 2, which is rumored to have been downloaded over 6 million times. Who knows if that number is close to accurate, but any way you slice it, Meek is winning right now. He’ll be in Seattle on Wednesday and word is, he’ll be dropping by the studio for an interview. MMG don’t stop.
Yeah, I know WLotD kinda died a few years ago when I became equal parts too busy and too apathetic to continue to call out idiocy in new songs, but if I happen to be blogging as I hear something dumb, I reserve the right to revive it. You can thank Pleasure P, he of the legendary wack lyric veteran group, Pretty Ricky. His new song with Tyga is called “I Like Girlz,” which aside from the always classy and edgy replacement of the letter “s” with a “z,” seems straightforward enough…until you hear the chorus:
“I love girls, I love girls, I love girls // So much, I think I’m lesbiahonest”
While Drake’s original line was pretty funny and somewhat clever, turning it into a hook for your single was a bad move P. But then again, you named yourself Pleasure P, so I suppose it’s all relative.
