ON WAX IS A WEEKLY TAKE UPDATING YOU ON THE POCKET OF CULTURE KNOWN AS HIP-HOP. WE BRING YOU EVERYTHING FROM BREAKING NEWS TO ALBUM DROPS, JAIL TIME AND WHO’S BEEFING WITH WHO.
TRAE THA TRUTH DROPS “FO I DIE” MUSIC VIDEO
Trae Tha Truth dropped a music video for his track, “Fo I Die.” While the music video isn’t anything special, the track is something if you are a fan of Trae Tha Truth or older Houston rappers—this would suffice perfectly for you. All in all, this track doesn’t add anything impressive to his catalog, however, it definitely doesn’t hurt.
CARDI B MAKES MORE “MONEY” MOVES
JEREMIH AND TY DOLLA $IGN UNITE FOR MIHTY
Two of R&Bs biggest artists, Jeremih, and Ty Dolla $ign, have teamed up for a joint project titled MihTy. The duo takes modern and classic `90s era R&B, and blends them together for an interesting project. Most of the production was handled by Hitmaka, who has produced for artists like Big Sean, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne. The project is definitely in the realm of baby making music, and a lot of the tracks are smooth and sample classic tracks, like Biggie’s “Fuck You Tonight” and Keni Burke’s “Risin’ To The Top.” The project is short and sweet with features from Wiz Khalifia, Chris Brown, and French Montana sprinkled in. Whether this is the first of many MihTy projects, time will tell, but for now we have some late night bedroom jams from the duo.
TAKEOFF DROPS “LAST MEMORY“
En route to the release of his highly-anticipated solo album, Takeoff drops a video for “Last Memory.” The track is okay because it doesn’t give you a fair taste of what Takeoff can do. What really makes the track enticing is that you can literally feel the fact that he can do way more than what he’s doing. Dropping after Quavo’s, many are curious to see how good his solo album will be, and if he really is the better Migos member.
JOJI DEBUTS BALLADS 1
SINCERELY, TOKYO ARRIVES
MadeinTYO has returned with his debut album, Sincerely, Tokyo. The project is short, yet effective as MadeinTYO does what he does best, which is make fun songs. With previous single, “Ned Flanders,” on the album, MadeinTYO already gave us a good idea of what to expect with this project. He delivers bangers after bangers, and while they are not all home runs, he gives us enough fun tracks to work into a playlist. Towards the end, Tyo even gives us some more R&B vibes with the help of Blood Orange and Tinashe. After several mixtapes, MadeinTYO has satisfied us with an actual cohesive project, and Sincerely, Tokyo is just good enough to set him apart from his contemporaries.
YELLA BEEZY RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL
After reports went out that a Dallas rapper had just been shot, prayers were instantly going his way in hopes of speedy recovery. Being released last week, the rapper looks to be making a well enough recovery with nothing but smiles—he also celebrated his 27th birthday on the 25th. The rapper seems to not halt at any point, and is ready to take on everything headed his way. After his birthday, we witnessed the remix for his hit, “That’s On Me,” drop. The track itself looked like it was hosting an all-star team with 2 Chainz, Jeezy, Boosie Badazz, Trapboy Freddy, Rich the Kid, and Professor Clifford Harris (T.I.). Regardless of how you feel about the track, you have to acknowledge the amount of respect being spread.
EAUSORA RELEASES “MORE STEAM”
Set to release his tape November 8th, DC up-and-comer Eausora linked with Houston rapper Trae Perry for a song called “More Steam.” Using older hip-hop as an influence, you can almost feel the `90s course through the veins of the track. Each rapper steps to bat, and both succeed in knocking their verses out of the park. If you haven’t heard it, check out this recent collab now:
Until next week, it’s On Wax.
