Wale – 90210

And she throws’ up, whateva she eat, She leaves the bathroom with a nosebleed
A regular girl, celebrity dreams,
She is… 90210
She live her whole life, like T.V., She will do anything for every-thing,
A regular girl, celebrity dreams,
She is… 90210″
I’m not a girl so I’m not even going to pretend like I know what being a fake one is about. I’ve sat on this song for a while simply because Wale spends the entire time putting down the “90210” lifestyle, whatever that’s supposed to mean. Regardless of the lyrics, I really like the production on this song. The track was produced by Marc Ronson and sounds more like something for Lily Allen than Wale. In fact, I think I would agree with these lyrics more if they were actually sung by Lily Allen. I mean I’m no expert but what girls and why they do it is just something I don’t think you can really understand unless you are one.
How can you fairly access something from the outside looking in? The majority of the time you’ll be wrong, you know what I mean? How could a mother fucker hate a nigga he never even met, he don’t even know. Shit, I think this rap shit is all peace.” – Jay-Z (1997, Lucky Me)

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Aout

New month – new Le Miel du Mois mixtape on EMPT. I would write more but it’s Saturday and I need to back out in the sun asap, enjoy.

Le Miel du Mois: Aout:  Last month, one of the fans of the monthly mix, “kiki,” commented on how Le Miel du Mois: Juillet makes her feel: “like dancing around the edge of a pool late night with a drink and a cigarette and oversized t-shirts and sometimes getting pushed in and you never remember the photos that get taken but you laugh the whole time,” Le Miel du Mois: Aout, aims to invoke the same exact feeling, but with a few minor alterations: sans pants, and add in flashing, flashing, lights lights lightssss.”

Nickel Eye Feat. Wale – Brandy of the Damned (Marc Ronson Remix)

Just got reminded of this song by Sean Mattison, the man everyone should be following on Twitter. I remember hearing the original a while back but never really kept it in rotation, this remix may change that. It was produced by Marc Ronson, notice the trademark brass arrangements and funky break beat. Wale, with the exception of the corny “Slim Fast” reference, does his part to perfection by blending into the songs concept and not over doing it. Very simple & tasteful production. EMPT fav.

Don’t let them get you down. They’ll step on you to get to higher ground.”
