Random Banger: Wooh Da Kid “1 Gun, 2 Gun”

In Brick Squad on March 3, 2013 at 4:06 pm

If he is to be believed , yes this man will shoot you.

Given his penchant for being on the forefront of all that is currently wrong with Black America and his track record of groundbreaking ignorance and occasional coonery, Gucci Mane doesn’t get proper for his musical contributions.

Songs alone do don’t not account for said contributions. No matter how scant their time in the limelight,or detrimental effect on the youth., Gucci Mane has brought artist under his wing into national prominence, along with helping cement the legacies of great  producers (Zaytoven, Shawty Redd) who somehow never became ubiquitous in production conversations.

While, sidetracked by the passing of Slim Dunkin, Gucci continues to try to put on members of his “Brick Squad Maffia”, with Wooh Da Kid getting the latest push.

I’ve always been a fan of “Posse Cuts”.  Classic  NWA influenced works DOC’s “The Grand Finale”  Above The Law’s “The Last Song” and Rap-A-Lot epic “Bring It On” still are mainstays in my rotation

“1 Gun, 2 Gun” is Wooh Da Kid’s attempt to create such a staple.

When not trying to convince  females to relieve themselves of their clothing by telling them he’s Waka’s brother. Wooh Da Kid journeys to the studio to try to make banngers.

While his dope track batting average could stand some improvement “1 Gun, 2 Gun” is a good start towards Wooh putting out higher quality music.

As the title suggests, 1 Gun is another ode to Black on Black violence via the usage of firearms. While nowhere near positive, nor a display of lyrical brilliance,1 Gun astutely supplies one key element to a good song, a ridiculous beat

Fuse 808 Mafia track in tow, Wooh and his cohorts proceed to explain, with varying degrees of ability, why its best not to fuck with them.

Reenacting any of the lyrics in this song (Sans riding around with a half Jamaican and Korean chick) is NOT the move, but banging this while riding around in your whip or headphones while working out isn’t a bad idea at all.

DA ILLNESS Presents “DA ILLNESS KNOWS THE GHOST IS REAL”

In Uncategorized on June 2, 2009 at 1:33 pm

Approximately a year ago a old friend lamented to me about their lack of music, and asked me what I happened to be listening to at the time and if I could send him some cds. After chastising him for even mentioning mailing as in “USPO” cd’s. I told him that I was on a heavy Joe Budden and Gucci Mane rotation and I’d lace him up with some ish he could download. That conversation would spawn “Da ILLNESS”

“Da ILLNESS” is basically a series of greatest hits collections crafted by yours truly. I’m not, nor have I ever attempted to be a dj, so these works are more amalgamations of the best tracks by some the illest artist than anything else. In other words…

My Ear  + My Hard Drive =  Excellence

The First ever ILLNESS created was

DA ILLESS IN THAT MOOD

In that mood isn’t  as many who received it at first thought a best of Joe Budden, instead it is a best of Joe Buddens amazing Mood Muzik Trilogy.  “In That Mood” turned out to be the perfect collection of music to.

A.Introduce those who never heard of Joe Budden to his music.

Or

B. Alter the hardened view many have that Joe Budden is wack as fuck. (p video)This is  Da first ILLNESS created and prolly still my favorite.

DA ILLNESS GUCCI MANE

I really can’t remember, but I would guess that I hadn’t decided that every ILLNESS had to have a catchy name when I made the one for Gucci Gucci. While Radrick Davis is known to create songs at a pace that can compete of 2 Pac and Lil Wayne, and has crafted many more bangers after this was created, anyone who wants to hear the many Gucci bangers from 2005-(early)2008  this you NEED  this in your life.  I find it amazing that that this collection includes 211mb and I had to leave music off of it.


DA ILLNESS PREDICTS DOOM

I basicly took a year off from making illnesses. Its not that I didn’t have Ideas  (show picture)  I messed around with the idea of creating one with a Jedi Mind Tricks Theme, a  “OJ Ain’t Locked UP”  assortment before Mr. Simpson was convicted and the Bolder Crest shortey made the whole world say “Aye” even a 3/6 version…which I quickly deaded upon better thinking.

It took my boy Dunn to bring the ILLNESS out of retirement when he asked me if I ever heard or listed to MF Doom….   Had I!!??!!  Mr. “overthrow it like throwing rover a biscuit” happens to be one of my current favorite mc’s so I was more then glad to create

DA ILLNESS PREDICTS DOOM

If there is a banging MF Doom Song its on this compilation. The only tracks missing are those from his latest Album “Born Like This” which I think you should definitely buy.

Now I bring to you

DA ILLNESS KNOW S THE GHOST IS REAL

Some mc’s no matter how high their talent level or connections to some the worlds my noticeable starts, remain relatively unknown to the masses.  Despite being associated with Puff during apex of Bad Boys popularity,  lacing certified hits by likes of Akon amongst others, and beefing with industry 50 Cent and Jay-Z and various times, Styles P has never really truly appreciated by those outside the underground realm.

Even those who have a ear for subterranean sounds and might even be D-Block fans tend to Jadakiss acolytes and diminish or worse yet dismiss Styles talents. This collection is for all of these types of people.

The “Ghost” as he adamantly  declares  himself  to be, is most certainly one of the hardest out. The adage of “Its not what you say but how you say it” greatly applies to Styles body of work.  Few other can express such strong conviction instilling believability within the listener while traveling  along a rugged landscape. Few artist can dully display such a penchant lyrical aggression and  poignant reflections of modern life.

You should definitely get familiar with the Ghost.

Once again  all of  DA ILLNESS’s  are available for download.
