What up Gang! Sorry about last week... I had nothing to post. I've been listening to to much old stuff and the bossman doesn't like that, but what are ya gonna do... specifically I've been listening to The Weeknd, so skipping last week for a voice like that man's was worth it. I'm tired so I'm gonna make this quick. SONG TIME.
1) The talented Rockie Fresh released his mixtape Driving 88, and so far what I've heard I liked a lot. The tape is produced so well and the beats are excellent. A lot of the songs will catch the listener's attention just like it did mine. Give it a listen it's definitely worth the time. Look out for more from this guy... he's got a lot of talent.
Good evening my fellow readers. It's another weekly dosage of Any Given Saturday. [Applauseand various people screaming my name]. Thank you, Thank you. I love you all also. It's been a pretty nice week. I've just been chilling and doing school stuff. Shoutout to all the college students back in school. I have nothing else to say.... time to get into these songs.
Maaan what cha know about The Roots?!?! The Roots are a legendary Hip Hop band and just released their 13th studio album titled Undun. I'm not going to lie, I haven't gotten through the whole album, but from what I've been hearing it's been great. The song I'm posting just brings you right in when Questlove is killing it on the drums... and who doesn't love Questlove? NOT ME!
That's it for this week guys. It's a little short but it's not short on LOVE. Like us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter. TQF. "Kill That Noise." Gang Gang.
I've been waiting to write all week, because I'm back on my school grizzy. It's bout that time to write for another week of ANY GIVEN SATURDAY. Let's get it shawwwwty. Another week peeps, and its been kind of chilly in the area so I can't really drive with my windows down so I can't get buck wild in the car listening to some hype music or else I'll get sick and I'm already the illest because I suffer from realness... see what I did there? Lets get into the songs.
1) Kendrick Lamar IS the hottest dude in the west coast right now. He was recently given the award for Best Album of 2011 on hiphopdx with Section.80. The song I'm posting though is off of a mixtape titled O(verly) D(edicated). If you haven't listened to Kendrick Lamar go out and download his stuff. He's only 24 and he's going to take over the game. He has so much talent. He'll be doing big things in 2012 especially with releasing Good Kid in a Mad City this year. Shout out to the main man Irfan.
2) Straight out of D.C. is Mr. Wale Folarin. Wale released a mixtape titled More About Nothing 2010. Yeah it's a little old but I mean it's a good song... what are you gonna' do? The reason I'm posting the song is because he starts out with some poetry and than BAM! He goes straight into the verse. Dude has talent.
It's suppose to get warmer next week so I'll get some hype music on this bad boy soon so stay tuned. Shout out to Jeanelle a new member of the Facebook fan page, much love to her. That's it for this week peeps. Like us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter. TQF. "Kill That Noise" Gang Gang.
You know what, recently I got some haters (Asad and Umbar) who said, "Hey Raza you are SO cool but it's funny how you start out every post the same way." They began to imitate the posts and I didn't respond to them because I didn't feel like it but now I am... SO WHAT HATERS. But you know, I got nothin' but love for you two. Shout out to those peeps. Any Given Saturday #10. Whaaaaaat! I have nothing else to say... so let's go to the songs.
1) I've been going on a Weeknd craze over the past week, especially after seeing that reaction video. The Weeknd recently released a 3rd mixtape titled Echoes of Silence and the internet was going crazy because a lot of the attention went to the opening track "D.D" because it was a Michael Jackson cover and also because he did a great job on the whole tape. The song I'm posting is called "Same Old Song." If you haven't listened to The Weeknd, go out and download all of his stuff. It's worth it.
2) Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y were big in 2011. They took over the mixtape scene with releases such as Kush and OJand Pilot Talk. They made a mixtape together called How Fly and their song "Car Service" was a favorite track of a lot of people.
That's it for this week guys. I hope everyone has a safe and a happy New Year. Be around friends and family and just think about the good times of 2011 and the big things that are coming for you guys in 2012. Keep coming back to TQF, because we'll be doing big things also in 2012. TQF. "Kill That Noise." Gang Gang. See you guys next year and be safe.
BATMAN KNOWS! What's going on everyone? Another week of Any Given Saturday. Yayyy! Well I'm pretty sure everyone is on break from school and spending time just relaxing and what not. Lately I've been chillin' and listening to some new stuff that came out and I'll be talking about it below. Also, I bought that new Batman game... Batman Arkham City. It's pretty legit. Well, enough video game talk; it's bout' that time.... let's get into these songs.
1) Lupe Fiasco recently released a mixtape in November titled Friend of The People and I didn't really give it a listen because in November there was just so much music released, I simply pushed it aside. I'm finally getting around to listening to it because I heard this song on a Youtubevlog of Brandon Jennings. This song got me into the tape because it was a different Lupe that I wasn't used to, and he did a good job. Enjoy.
2) This track right here has a lot of people going crazy. The Weeknd released a mixtape earlier in the week titled Echoes of Silence. The opening track is a cover of the famous Michael Jackson song "Dirty Diana". The Weeknd did such a great job on the song, but of course it can't trump the original.
That is all until next week guys. Happy Holidays! Enjoy them until we all go back to the grind. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. Tell your friends about us also. WE NEED DALUV! TQF. "Kill That Noise." Gang Gang
Waddup, Waddup, Wadddupp TQF GANG?! It's FINALLY 'bout that time... Any Given Saturday #8. Sorry about last week it was a busy week with finals and what not. That's all done though, but shout out to everyone who was on their study grind the past couple of weeks, and also to anyone who graduated. Special shoutout to the bossman Mueez who graduated. The man does so much for TQF and the community so kudos to the boss. Now that I'm out of school for a couple of weeks I can get some TQF stuff done... even though I do a just this Any Given Saturday thing, I'm behind the scenes cooking some stuff up. Anyways lets get into these songs.
1) Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg released a soundtrack to their movie Mac and Devin Go To High School and I've been giving it some playtime. At first I wasn't even going to bother listening to this album but when I heard "OG" I thought I could cut it some slack. What made the song more appealing was that it featured Curren$y and he always does a song justice when he's on it. I'm still listening to the album but so far this is my favorite on it. Wiz is actually working on a mixtape titled Taylor Allderdice so be on a lookout for that.
2) Time to slow it down a little bit with some R.Kelly. "When a Woman Loves" is a song R. Kelly released on his 10th album, Love Letter. This is a great song, but the thing that got me really hooked was the way he performed it live on various talk and award shows. If you ever get a chance, I suggest you look up a live performance of him performing this song because it's well worth the search.
Well guys that's it for this week. Thanks for reading and I will not skip a week again I promise. Follow us on Twitter and Like us on Facebook. TQF."Kill That Noise." Gang Gang.
Good evening TQF Gang. It's that time of the week for the 7th sampling..... Any Given Saturday. It's December now and it's starting to get a little chilly and people are starting to get that Christmas feel so it seems everyone is happy nowadays, not to mention the semester is about to end. Shout out to the school kids on their grind; special shoutout to the Boss Man Mueez who's graduating next Friday. Anyways, I'm feeling a bit under the weather today... but hey, I do what I do and I do good. Yeah I'm a little sick, but who gon' stop me...HUH?! Let's get into these songs.
1) Kanye West was just nominated for a leading 7 Grammys. However, there is one nomination that Kanye West wasn't nominated for and that nomination was Album of the Year. Kanye's 2010 album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, is considered the album of the year by many. I listen to that album everyday because there are so many good songs on it, but this week I've been listening to "Devil in a Dress." "Devil in a Dress" is an impressive song on the album; West and Rick Ross definitely delivered. In fact, Rick Ross' verse is actually considered the best on the album.
2) Maybach Music Group released a collaborative album in May titled Self Made Vol I. For me, the album was an okay listen, but the one song that stands out to me is "Self Made." "Self Made" features Wale, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, Pill, and Teedra Moses. My favorite verse on here is Meek Mill's because he brings so much energy to it, and he also has a Kemba Walker line... Kemba Walker is kind of a boss.
3) Time for some old school stuff; Wu-Tang Clan. Wu-Tang clan is widely considered the greatest Hip-Hop group of all time. Their debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), which was released in November of 1993 is almost as old as me! "C.R.E.A.M." is a song on the album which is a pretty popular song to this day. People still use the acronym, and I don't blame them because it's a pretty legitimate acronym.
Another one down. Thanks guys for reading. Hopefully I feel healthier next week and what not. Shout out to Umbar for her first editing job on this post. Another shout out to Ahsan because he dropped 22 points on his first game of the season. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. Tell your friends about us. TQF. "Kill That Noise". Gang Gang.
Gang Gang. What's going on TQF once again it's bout' that time. Any...Given...Saturday. Woo! Check it check it, it's been kind of a chill for all of us I guess. A lot of people were on break for turkey day and what not so everyone is still recovering from Thanksgiving and Black Friday. I went Black Friday shopping for the first time earlier.... that stuff is crazy. What are you going to do though? People love da discounts! Enough of this talk... lets get into these songs.
1) Yeah Buddy! Some Maroon 5."Sunday Morning" was on Maroon 5's first album Songs About Jane. "Sunday Morning"is a song I've been listening to all this week, because I've been just chillin' lately. I'm not going to lie the first time I heard this song is when Andrew Garcia performed it on American Idol. He did do the song justice though. Maroon 5 is one of the ways to go when you're just chillin'.
2) "Otis" by Jay-Z and KanyeWest is a great song off of their album Watch the Throne. When the song came out I didn't really see all the hype, but then again that happens to me a lot. Whenever a song usually comes out I don't really get the feel that everyone gets until after a couple of weeks. I started liking "Otis" in August but never posted it, because the idea didn't come up to me until recently. Anyways I don't think I'll ever get sick of this song, because Jay-Z and Kanye are constantly going in on the track and it never gets boring.
3) This right here to me is an amazing song. "Sweet Disposition" by Australian indie rock band The Temper Trap is a song off of their debut album Conditions from 2009. The vocals of the song are so relaxing, and after the first time I found the song and put it straight on my iPod. I heard this song in the movie 500 Days of Summer. The whole soundtrack to the movie was good but this song really stood out to me during the whole movie, and the song fit perfectly. Also watch the movie if you can, it's one of the best movies I've seen... I'm going to watch it after this post.
Well you guys another week down. Thanks for reading, as usual I appreciate it. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. I hope you guys enjoyed your Thanksgiving, be thankful for everything that you got. Tell your friends and family how much you love them, because it's the littlest things in life that have the biggest impact on people. TQF. "Kill That Noise". Gang.... Gang.
Ello Ello Ello TQF. Another dose of Any Given Saturday. Woo! I'm pretty exicted about this one, because a lot was released this week. A LOT of music was released, but I'm not complaining ya know? The month of November was a great month for music. Me and my friend Jehan were talking about how November was crazy because Wale started the month out on a good note with Ambition. Then Drake and Childish Gambino made it just an incredible month with their albums. Shout out to my boy Jano for the "shhh" picture idea, shout out to Ganeshy for going through with it. This week's post will be a little different because usually I post some old music but I just can't miss out on the opportunity to talk about all the music I've listened to this month. Lets get into these songs.
1) Folarin! Wale released his second album Ambition on 11/1/11, and he did what he usually did by killing it. "Double M Genius" is my favorite song on the album, because there are so many lines that just got me hooked. I mean I got hooked by the first line "Yeah, I'mma let the chips fall N***** is Kemba Walker tryna see me pitfall" whaaaat. Come on, killed it. My favorite line though is "Loud smoking so pass the L like a semicolon." Whaaaaaaat, so sick! Wale is a genius when it comes to his lyrics, and I had to do some research to understand some of his lyrics.
2) Drake is back. I'm not afraid to say it. Drake is back to his So Far Gone form. Maybe he never left, but I didn't think Take Care was going to be what it was going to be. I was a little scared because I mean I liked "Headlines" but I just thought Take Care was going to be another Thank Me Later, but I was wrong. Take Care had so much emotion in it from Drake and he got so personal. "Look What You've Done" is one of the deepest and emotional songs I've ever heard in my life, and Drake pours his heart and soul out on the song talking about how hard life was with his mom and how his uncle was like a father to him. The outro to the song with his Grandma just topped it all off.
3) Childish Gambino. Camp.... what an album. Gambino did his thing, ever since it came out my iPod hasn't changed to another album or rapper. Gambino put in so much work and time into this album and it's easy to tell that he did. What got me hooked was the passion you could feel in his voice through every song, and the emotion that took over me when I heard it. I was hooked from the first song "Outside". What an opening track, the chorus and how personal he got into it was just amazing. Talking about how hard it was for his family to make money and how it was so tough for him to fit in with everyone. Kudos to Childish Gambino for one of the greatest albums I've ever heard.
4) Weezy! I haven't listened to No Ceilings in a while, because I've been listening to Camp and Take Care. The reason I did listen to No Ceilings was because last week I was taking my friend Hanna home, and she played it, but the crazy thing was that she knew EVERY WORD to this song it was the coolest thing ever. Usually in the car we'll listen to Jason Derulo or Adele, but she played this and she knew the words, it was crazy. Shoutout to Hannafor being such a G. On another note though No Ceilings was the last time Lil Wayne actually did his thing and hopefully he can do it again.
Well that's all for this week guys. Thank you for reading, I appreciate it. If you get a chance listen to Camp and Take Care, it's some of the most emotional music you'll listen to. It's definetly worth the time, and if you don't like them... it is what it is.... or you might be crazy. November was a great month for music and hopefully there will be another month like this. Also TQF got a grammar editor, because we're to G for grammar. Shout out to Umbar. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter, spread the word about us. Tell your teachers about us, write it on the back of your car, or something creative. Also like I said before itd be cool if we could get some fan drawn "shhh" pictures that would be awesome and we'll definitely feature them. TQF. Kill That Noise. Gang Gang.
I'm back ladies and gentleman, and I'm the same as before. Man Any Given Saturday #4, I remember when I just started and I was a rookie. Let's just say if this were the NBA I'd be in the all-star game.... just call me Blake Griffin. You know it's really hard to write stuff in the opening paragraph because I don't want to be repetitive, and I want to keep you guys hooked on this bad boy. Maybe one day I'll give you 16 bars... if you're lucky. Or maybe I'll just stop... naaaaahhhh. Can't stop won't stop. Lets get into these songs.
1) Mr. Aubrey Graham's album leaked this week, and well I wasn't one of those people who downloaded the leak. Sometimes the leaks are a little sketch and I ain't about that life. All of the Take Care noise got me into somewhat of a Drake mood so I decided to listen to Thank Me Later the past week. What's funny about Thank Me Later is that just recently Drake said he " Wasn't necessarily happy with it," when he said that I was thinking to myself "Really? I liked it a lot". To me this album was under rated because there were so many slow tracks on it and people weren't used to that Drake, but he said with Take Care he's more confident with it. Take Care comes out 11/15, support Drake and buy it. This is one of my favorite tracks of the album "Fireworks" featuring Alicia Keys. I still listen to this song to this day, because Drake's opening verse is one of my favorites of his.
2) Cudderrrs. Kid Cudi is currently working on a rock album called Wizard, but he hasn't quit rapping. Kid Cudi has never disappointed me. Both of the Man on the Moons were legit, and are still on my iPod. He's always delivered, and lately the videos he's been in have been awesome, the "Mr.Rager" visual was awesome, and it blew my mind. This song is on Man on The Moon II:The Legend of Mr. Rager. I enjoyed this album a lot and "REVOFEV" is one of my favorite tracks on the album. Another reason why I like this song, because he performs it really well live also. Gotta give him props for that, because some artists are pretty bad live.
3) Time to slow it down a little bit. Maxwell is a legend, and can release awesome music whenever he wants. I learned about Maxwell from "Pretty Wings" and I thought that song was cool, but this song got me hooked on him. Maxwell's range of voice is crazy because he can hit all types of notes. "This Woman's Work" is a cover of the original song which was by Kate Bush. I remember when I listened to this song for the 1st time in my friend's car and I thought it was a beautiful song, and it still has that effect on me. Maxwell is planning to release some stuff soon so keep a look-out for that.
This was fun. I appreciate the read guys, I really do. I take a lot of pride in doing this, and I enjoy doing this. I hope you guys are reading this as well.
