The new year continues to roll out with new music and unlikely collaborators. The TDE crew held things down with verses from Schoolboy Q and Isaiah Rashad, while we highlight some great new talent like Denzel Curry and Alex Wiley. Without further ado, the lines of the week:
Rihanna has nostalgia for her past relationship, and she chooses to only remember the good times. She forgets the mistakes, which may be the reason for the on again off again relationship with Chris Breezy.
Is this the best Harry Potter reference in hip hop?! Harry’s mother was killed with a magical wand — a favorite phallic symbol of rappers and D&D aficionados alike — but Harry managed to defy death. But in this case, not even he could survive Denzel’s onslaught.
Right now, being signed to a big label is the least of his worries. He’s a member of the rap collective The Village, and they’re doing just fine without being signed.
Master P is Isaiah’s favorite rapper, so he dedicated this song to P’s slain brother Kevin Miller. He also references Juvenile, “Juvie”, who dropped his multi-platinum album 400 Degreez in 1998.
As Tinashe told RG: “Life is short so let’s show out and take risks!” She recently turned 21 and is living in the moment with her mind on the money.
