January 2015 Playlist

New year, new URL. For one reason or another, the blog formerly known as snugglesounds has been renamed to beatPrescription.com. Upon further investigation, it was found that ”snugglesounds” is pending trademark by kids toy giant Mattel. After much deliberation, it was decided that the name probably is better suited to a device that helps kiddlywinks go to lullaby land, as opposed to a blog serving hip-hop & trap fiends their dosage of fresh tunes.

With this in mind, please enjoy your first monthly prescription of beats for the new year. Apart from our name change, the formula of our playlists remains the same – a heavenly hit of hip-hop, followed by a soothing spoonful of chill-trap and ending with an infatuating injection of slightly more intense trap. We also still thoroughly enjoy alliteration.

FRESH PRODUCER / SPOTLIGHT: Sonny Digital

sdSonny Digital is one of those smooth operators who does his thing all over the studio. At 23 (now, but will he live to see 24, the way things are going I don’t know) years old, he’s been hitmaking for a couple years now and with two iLoveMakonnen hits to his name, including I Don’t Sell Molly No More, Sonny’s DJ tag is getting all the more familiar.

 

Perhaps his most acclaimed contribution thus far is his joint production effort with Metro Boomin for the infectious turn-up track Tuesday, which had many of us trying to write witty tweets every Tuesday for quite a while;

 

The seasoned producer now even dabbles in a bit of prose. The freshly cut track Good, produced by none other than the man himself (derr) pairs his voice and super chill sound effortlessly.

 

And even fresher at less than a week old, here’s his newest effort, Everything, featuring Chevy Woods

 

Keep up with what we’re listening to at the moment at our Soundcloud –> beatPrescription

SPOTLIGHT: DeJ Loaf

dej_loaf2

DeJ Loaf is cool as fuck. I implore you to take one listen and not be almost immediately intimidated by the sheer amount of cool this young emcee bestows. And with a penchant for shades & wide brimmed headwear, in my humble opinion her appearance only reinforces her cool.

Her track Try Me, produced by DDS, is refreshingly intimidating, with not one but two references to turning bitches into pasta.

DeJ – with no hoe in her blood & having always been a boss – collaborates with Young Thug & Birdman in Blood;

Without even needing to try, DeJ is sexy too. Behold Me U & Hennessey, perhaps the sexiest song of 2014;

 

Lil DeJ shows another more sensitive side to herself on Hold You Down, all the while still radiating cool;

December 2014 Playlist

December is traditionally more turnt up than its calendar counterparts, with most of us dranking to celebrate the end of the working year, going on vacay, merrymaking and muffintopmaking over Christmas and prepping for what is usually the first and worst hangover of the new year. With this in mind, one requires a suitable selection of tunes to turn up to & December’s playlist should fit the bill.

Looking forward to hearing what ratchet joints & gurn anthems 2015 has in store for us! Keep your playlists on point and follow my Soundcloud which is chockablock full of hip hop and trap beats to make babies to.

Until next year…

VIDEO: Rae Sremmurd – Up Like Trump

Rae Sremmurd are on a roll. With a little help in the stu from master beatmaker Mike WiLL Made It, twentyfourteen has been stellar with 2 crackers, No Flex Zone & No Type, the freshly squeezed Throw Sum Mo featuring (IMO) the current king of hip hop Young Thug & the notorious Nicki Minaj, as well as appearing on the previously blogged Baauer jam One Touch. Fresh out of Sonny Digital’s oven, this week the boys have cooked up audio & visual for their follow-up single Up Like Trump and it smells like another hit to me.

Swae Lee & Slim Jim make their own money & they spend it how they like, and if we’re going by this video it’s on Hummers, Lennon shades, creepy Donald Trump masks, nunchucks and getting white girls wasted in swanky New York City penthouses. With an average age of 20 and presumably quite a stack of cash to burn…. life just ain’t fair. Sigh.

SPOTLIGHT: Honey Cocaine

251078-honey-cocaine

For some reason, female rappers don’t enjoy the same appreciation from hiphopheads that their male counterparts receive and you know what, it really fucking sucks. Especially with the abundance of rad lady emcee’s out and about right now, and as much as I love Miss Minaj and Igloo Australia (LOL at the Azealia/Azalea beef) I’m not just talking about them.

Honey Cocaine is a pint-sized Canadian cutie originally from Cambodia who can spit a nasty rhyme. Unearthed by fellow (part) AZN rapper Tyga, she has a unique flow with a very subtle lisp (think Casey Veggies but toned down) but the girl sure goes hard.

A perfect introduction to Queen Honey C is her video for Chichi Get The Yayo. With beats by Dkevrim, Honey manages to pull off thug & sexy at the same time, totally rocking her thigh high hosiery, cat claws, braces and bling bling in the bathtub;

Honey’s latest video, Curveball follows a ratchet thoroughly enjoying getting eyeball fucked while booty popping through a street festival;

Here’s a throwback to her OG rap duet with Tyga;

So I’m talking to the dudes now – do we like? Is she aiight? Haven’t written her off yet? Sweet! Have a listen to her latest mixtape, Like A Drug. Honorable mentions go out to previously blogged twerk anthem Gwola featuring Kid Ink & Maino and BTCHSM featuring fellow chick rapper Snow Tha Product (now that you have this newfound respect for female emcee’s you should totally check her out too)

Queen Honey C, nice to meet you baby :)

 

FRESH PRODUCER: Stwo

tttPronounced like a kind of slow-cooked liquidy casserole, Stwo is another primo producer hailing from the land famous for croissants, the Eiffel Tower & a supposed distaste for Americans. With an impressive array of remixes under his belt, this young Frenchman has come here to chew bubblegum and make your ass dance.

Here Stwo works his magic on T-Pain, taking his vocals & much of the ratchet factor down a notch;

 

Here Stwo cooks up some Trey Songz (but hold the mustard, please);

 

& here Stwo gives this Sango beat a few shots of a caffeine;

 

His original tracks are just as, if not, more impressive than his remixes. This one is super seductive with a hypnotic echo;

 

& this sexy stoner jam slaps you in the face with awesomeness, sampling Three Six Mafia’s Sippin On Some Sizzurp.

 

Jet’aime aussi, Stwo <3

BABY IT’S THE REMIX: Baauer – One Touch

Yours truly has a tendency to crank multiple versions of the same track within the same musical rotation, and this is one such example currently being relished. The OG version, featuring rhymes from Rae Sremmurd (a pair of rappers who spit over Mike Will Made It beats & who’s name spells Ear Drummers backwards) & vocals from Aluna George (UK pop duo) is an unlikely collaboration, yet Baauer makes the genre-bending ménage à trois work. And thanks to Baauer’s tip-top recruitment skillz, more of the world have now been introduced to Swae Lee & Slim Jimmy, the 2 young dudes making up Rae Sremmurd, who spit about popping Senzu beans <3 :D

 

Choosing to remove the cheek of Rae Sremmurd, Baauer also made a mean “VIP” remix of One Touch (which he actually released first), highlighting the super sweet vocals of Aluna while upping the intensity just a tad, making it all the more gurn friendly. You probably want to pop a Senzu bean to this one :D

VIDEO: ScHoolboy Q – Hell Of A NigHt

 

Being Oxymoron video lucky number 7, it seems Groovy Q is on a mission to viddy every track off of it. The prospect is exciting, since ScHoolboy Q could personally be my favourite rapper… or does it have to be Kendrick? It’s supposed to be… right? And I was supposed to inform you that Q (or Jay Rock or Ab Soul or anyone on TDE) is a Kendrick affiliate too, wasn’t I? :| Anywho, the video for Hell Of A NigHt should appeal to anyone that has ever been too turnt and lost their marbles on a night. Q kicks things off with a familiar red cup filled with an ambitious narcotic cocktail. He rocks a mean bucket hat & grill, gurning with bulk bad bitches, later seen huffing nitrogen (aka nangs aka hippy crack). He also trips balls in front of a mirror for a while. Standard, given the circumstances. Enjoy :D
