FUNDAY MUSIC EDITION: Too Many Tough Tunes

It's been a great week for tunes.  Too many.  Too many tough tunes this week.

Therefore although it's cold outside, we are heating up on Funday with all these jamz for you to dance to/bop to/enjoy with headphones leisurely.

Preferably like this
So get comfortable, in whatever way that means for you.  Because this time we have dancehall, we have Beyonce dancing in a hall, and ninjas that fight in a hall.

Let's go!

Sounds

Popcaan

Look, it may be cold as shit in most of the United States, but there is one time tested remedy for easing your freezing: Dancehall.  Just put on some of the tunes from the most exciting and talented artist to emerge in a while: Popcaan. Before you know it you'll be sweating your ass off.  Although it might be the coconut rum you are drinking, but either way you'll be having fun.  Let's all just move to Jamaica.






Beyonce

Kilt it. Absolutely.






ASAP Ferg

Here's the deal:  I really like ASAP Mob.  I like that they are from New York and are making their own fashion conscious, all Harlem spin on Wu-Tang (although let's be straight here, nobody touches the Wu).  I really really like ASAP Rocky, the obvious and charismatic star of the group.  But I have always been a sucker for the underdog, and once Ferg was that guy.  The second rapper in the group to break, and secretly the one that everybody loved the best.  Now he is no second banana, he is the fucking man.





Smashing Pumpkins

Yeah, I know right!?!  The Smashing Pumpkins have, at least in the past decade and change, been a band known primarily for two things:  1) They were at one point a great band who hold a special place in everyone who is 27-35's hearts.  2) Everything they have produced in the past 15 years has been utter shit.  That is why it is so surprising that their new song is real good.  It sounds like something off their 90's opus Melon Collie, but if they had recorded a song for a movie soundtrack. You may be absolutely crazy Billy Corgan, but you still got it.  So 90's people, go put on your flannel, get your skateboard, pierce your eyebrow, and get ready to feel depressed.






Skrillex

Regardless of what you think of Skrillex, and you should give him more credit because he is a talented dude, this video is the perfect marriage of visual and music.  So cool.






Mark Ronson

Mark Ronson has pretty much never made a bad song, which is why the fact that more people know of his sister because she dated Lindsay Lohan baffling to me.  This is the guy that made Amy Winehouse famous.  That's why he can get Bruno Mars to dress up like a fool and record a super fun video.  By the way, he's the doofy looking white guy with shades on.  Now go buy all of his records.






Dizzee Rascal

There are not many things more important to me in this world than the gory revenge saga of ninja/rapper Dizzee Rascal.






Brodinski f/SD

Here are my observations on this one.  This video is super cool, and although I don't know what it is trying to say I agree with it.  SD is my favorite Chicago Drill scene rapper.  Brodinski is the best name.  That is all.




Pusha T

Many rapheads consider Jadakiss the most underrated rapper of all time.  There's no denying that he is an incredibly talented rapper (see here and every other song he's done), and has not been able to successfully cross over from rap.  He's the head of supergroup The Lox, and probably the true king of banana features even though everybody thinks it's Ludacris.  Here's the thing though, just from the fact that everyone thinks he is the most underrated elevates him.  You wanna know who the real most underrated is?  It's the man from Virgina.  One half of The Clipse.  Your Pusha man.






BONUS CLIP







That's all.  See you next week for your regularly scheduled Funday.  Keep warm you knuckleheads.
