"About Me"
Hip Hop

Many of today’s chart topping hip hop artists don’t like songs like this. And it’s not that they don’t appreciate them, but rather the fact that they would like to release music like it but simply can’t. And why can’t they you may ask? Well it’s something called "commercial success". Why the quotes then? Well, take them out if you don't like them - you can, you are free; mainstream or rather commercially successful artists aren't most of the time until they make so much money they can't count it. Artists in pursuit of commercial success have to put it at the forefront of everything they do, think and say inside and outside of the recording studio. Sadly, many amateur or err desperate record labels believe the only way to achieve commercial success really fast is by either following trends or adopting an existing blueprint of some sort that tells them what fans are most likely to buy or are already buying at the time. Do these blueprints also tell them fans are brain-dead? Because most die-hard hip hop fans die a little more inside each time they hear a new Drake song, and absolutely love it. But enough about Drake, he doesn’t even know how much he really makes (but it’s a lot - sing the rest here then continue). Coolidge first teamed up with OG Snap on a song titled “Can I Have Your Number”. It was an underground hip hop hit that was ahead of its time and consequently is still a fan favorite today, several years after its release back in 2013. And no, it didn’t have a futuristic beat or bass like an alien’s fart. It was ahead of its time because it made sense, and it made sense all the way through – a trend that we are already seeing start to return to hip hop post-COVID-19 and a trend that will hopefully spill over into pop as well in more ways than lyrically. We are tired of seeing Nicki Minaj (yep, that sh*t is pop) wearing that facial expression that looks like she forgot something, and it’s lodged in her butt hole (poop of course, what were you thinking of?). Now where were we? Ah, “About Me”. When you think back to the early days of hip hop, collaborations were some of the most exciting songs. There was just something about two artists who really knew what they were doing coming together. There wasn’t much remote working at the time so more often than not there was a chance they would be in the same recording studio at the same time, and you could almost taste the immense energy and passion in the air, smell the copious amounts of reafer being burned and the cocoa butter on their groupies (oops! was inappropriate?). This is one of those types of records. It’s full of energy and passion, it’s raw and it conveys all the energy and ambience of the environment and circumstances it came from very accurately.
