Songs of the Week

*Songs plural because at 4420 and counting you simply can't choose one*

Pandemonium - Rick Ross Ft. Meek Mill & Wale

The Boyz in the Hood intro is too cool. When you hear Ricky Rozay's now trademark Australian chick whispering "Maybach Music" before the beat drops you can't help but get excited and thankfully the track lives up to it. A sick beat that's mercifully NOT produced by some double L dude from the South that you may have heard of. Ross continues to step up his bars ("Armadillo cigars, killers who like to play golf/heroin transactions with Russian shots of the Smirnoff") and with recent Maybach Music Group signees Wale and Meek Mill proves that he may be able to pull off a hot label after all, cause those Triple C's dudes are not it (Don't know what I'm talking about? Exactly).  He already proved he was here to stay after managing to steal some summer spotlight for himself from Drake and Eminem last year; I'm already excited to see what the Boss has in store for 2011.

And to highlight my eclecticism...

This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody) - The Talking Heads

Not much to say about this besides it being one of the best songs of all time. Yea, I said it. Been banging this for the past two weeks like it was new or something [1983]. Enjoy. Peep the cover by Miles Fisher too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G29d6RDSK1c
