New Rap Songs

african songs
by ??

Rap songs that have the potential to end up as some of the best rap songs of all time have been hitting the top of the charts for the past couple weeks. These new rap songs are coming from both new and established artists, each with their own special touch of what they see rap to be as a music genre. These artists are making new and exciting beats, creative lyrics, and a reputation that may even outlive them. Here are some of the top new rap songs currently at the tip of the charts.

One of the top new songs is called “B.M.P (Blowin’ Money Fast)” by Rick Ross; featuring Styles P. Rick Ross is signed with the label Def Jam Records. His first album came out in August of 2006 and he has released several singles since then. This song is currently in the top ten best rap songs on several different charts and radio stations.

Another song at the top of the charts is “Got Your Back” by T.I, featuring Keri Hilson. This is a song about giving a woman all she wants no matter what it takes. T.I talks about both material and romantic things in his own way of expressing himself to this woman. His first album was released in October of 2001 and he has been staying strong ever since, especially the last few years.

Drake is a relatively new rapper, but he has two new songs that are at the top of the charts. These are “Miss Me”, featuring Lil Wayne, and “Fancy”, featuring T.I and Swizz Beatz. He is also featured in a top song called “Right Above It” by Lil Wayne. Drake started out in the acting business, playing parts in shows like the Canadian show Digrassi and has become extremely successful in such a short period of time.

The song that is currently number one on several charts is “Love the Way You Lie” by Eminem, featuring Rihanna. This is a song that was written to raise awareness to domestic violence and to educate those in abusive relationships. Eminem has been topping charts since 1999 when his debut album, “The Slim Shady LP”, was released. In his entire career, he has released seven albums and has had thirteen number one hits. He is considered one of the best rappers of all time according to VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Artists of all time.

Other songs that are in the top fifteen best rap songs are “Your Love” by Nicki Minaj, “Like a G6” by Far East Movement, featuring Cataracs and Dev, “Just a Dream” by Nelly, “No Hands” by Waka Flocka Flame, featuring Roscoe Dash and Walz, “Toot it and Boot It” by YG, “Airplanes” by B.o.B, featuring Hayley Williams, ‘Gucci Time” by Gucci Mane, featuring Swizz Beatz, ‘Teach Me How to Dougie” by Cali Swag District, and “Club Can’t Handle Me”, by Flo Rida, featuring David Guetta.

Weezy F. Wavy is an authority on identifying new rap songs. He is a contributing writer for many popular hiphop publications and blogs, providing commentary on modern day hiphop.

Play Music Without Sheet Music Or Talent

“I’m not musically inclined.” “I’m all thumbs.” “I couldn’t sing my way out of a paper sack.” “I’m tone deaf.” All of these reasons that people give, and more of them, cannot convince me that someone couldn’t learn music if they wanted. After all, everyone remembers snippets of music they’ve heard from the radio or elsewhere. Music makes life interesting. One doesn’t have to know how to read sheet music, to be able to enjoy playing music.

To explain, music is sound divided into elements, that, when heard, pleases our spirits. These elements are melody, harmony, and rhythm. We latch onto the steady beat, and the dramatic, up and down melody.

Now, to divide the elements into what we may understand, we focus on melody. These sounds are put together in increments that follow a pattern. This pattern is based on a scale, or at least a key. The scale, or key, has a letter name, like ‘C’. When one plays a ‘C’ on an instrument, one has a reference point to play the other letters in a melody.

Should you want to learn a song you have heard, take a part of the melody you remember.
You may play the first note that you consider in the range of the song. Whatever instrument you play, you can choose any starting note. In order to reproduce the melody exactly, or very closely, use the following technique.

Does the melody go up or down in sound from the first note? When you play the next note, does it sound right or wrong, good or bad? If it sounds bad, that note is probably not in the scale or key of the song. The way to remember the wrong note is to write it down. So, write down all the right notes, and all the wrong notes you play. You’ll soon see patterns of notes you should and shouldn’t play, as you navigate up and down the melody.

Regarding rhythm, tap out the easiest part of the song you like. If it’s too hard, slow the rhythm, and attempt to tap it without errors. You’ll soon see the long and short taps work together to keep a constant and logical pace. You’re able to emphasize beats, tapping them harder or softer.

Now, attempt to play the right notes within the learned rhythm. Don’t tap out the rhythm any longer. Use the melody for the rhythm. If you’re singing, don’t worry so much about wrong notes, as about correct rhythm. Where you emphasized the rhythm alone, attempt to do the same with the notes. Sing or play them louder or softer, to enhance the beat. Scoop the notes dramatically for effect; lengthen or shorten the notes; play whole phrases gradually louder or softer. Feel the music take over your mind and spirit.

In the end, playing music gives us a beautiful feeling. Like any art, music involves working with the constructs of the physical, to see past physics, and contact the spiritual. Music is for everyone with a spirit.

Boone Hall Plantation.
What is special about Boone Hall? It has a wonderful Virginian Live Oak alley which was planted from 1743 to 1843. The plantation has been continuously producing crops since 1681. It especially focuses on Gullah culture and the slave quarters with presentations by black Americans. Eight slave cabins (1790-1810) depict different aspects of Gullah culture and history. The plantation style homestead was only built in 1936 but the original house was built around 1700. It has beautiful flower gardens and the azaleas should be at their best. In the 1850s the plantation had 85 slaves with many involved in red brick production. Its main crops in early years were indigo and then cotton from the early 1800s. Its structures include the round smokehouse (1750); and the cotton gin factory (1853).

Gullah Culture and Language and Blacks in Charleston.
Gullah language is recognised as a distinct language and the black American population of coastal Sth Carolina and Georgia recognise themselves as Gullah people. But where did this culture originate? American historian Joseph Opala has spent decades researching the connections between Sierra Leone in Africa and Sth Carolina. A majority of the coastal black slaves arriving in Sth Carolina in the 1700s came from Sierra Leone where the area was known as the “Rice Coast” of Africa. The slaves brought with them the knowledge and skills for rice cultivation in Sth Carolina; their rice cooking methods; their West African language; their legends and myths; and their beliefs in spirits and voodoo. The Gullah people are thought to have the best preserved African culture of any black American group. Few have moved around the USA and black families in Charleston are now tracing their family history (and having family reunions with relatives) in Sierra Leone and Gambia, despite a break of 250 years in family contact! Many can trace their family links back to the Mende or Temne tribal groups in Sierra Leone. The Gullah language is a Creole language based on English but with different syntax more akin to African languages and with many African words and a few French words. The word Gullah is believed to be a mispronunciation of the African word Gora or Gola which came from several tribal groups in Sierra Leone. The direct links with Sierra Leone have been supported by the discovery of an African American funeral song which is identical to one sung by villagers in Sierra Leone.

The Gullah women in Charleston are also known for their weaving- the Sweetgrass basket sellers who can be found in several locations around the city. The skill and tradition of basket making came directly from Africa. And although they do not usually use the term voodoo the Gullah people believe in spirits and the power of roots, herbs or potions to ward off evil spirits or to snare a reluctant lover. If a spell is cast upon you can be “rooted” or “fixed” by this witchcraft and unable to resist the spell. This spiritual tradition is still strong and even whites in Charleston paint the ceilings of their piazzas blue to ward off old hags and evil spirits (and the colour is also meant to deter mosquitoes.)

In the city of Charleston about 18,000 of its residents were slaves in 1861. Large households often had 10 to 20 slaves to do gardening, the laundry, the cooking, the cleaning, the food serving, caring for the horses etc. Some households hired out servants to others for short periods and some households sold products produced by the slaves – dresses, other clothing, pastries, shoes, hats, horse shoes etc. Some slaves were musicians and played for their masters or were hired out for social functions to other houses; others were hired out with horse teams for transportation of others etc. So not all slaves worked as domestic servants. But there were also free blacks in Charleston. Often illegitimate children were freed upon their white father’s death and some slaves received small incomes if they had special skills and they could saved enough to buy their freedom. Eventually some free blacks became slave owners themselves by either purchasing slaves or by inheriting slaves from their white fathers. One of the wealthiest free blacks in Charleston in the Antebellum period was Richard DeReef who owned a wharf where he ran a timber business. He also owned a number of rental properties in Charleston. Richard was not a former slave. His African father with his Indian wife had migrated to Sth Carolina in the late 1700s when this was still possible. As his business grew Richard purchased slaves of his own. Despite his wealth Richard DeReef was considered a mixed race or coloured man and was never accepted into Charleston society. After the Civil War when the Radical Republicans from the North were overseeing/controlling Southern governments Richard DeReef was elected as a city councillor in 1868. That was the year that the new federally enforced state constitution allowing blacks to vote came into force. DeReef probably only served for a year or two. By 1870 the Ku Klux Klan was active and blacks disappeared from elected positions. When Northerners left Sth Carolina to its own devises in 1877, with the end of Northern Reconstruction, Sth Carolina stripped blacks of their right to vote by new state laws. Ballots for each of the usual eight categories of office had to be placed in a different ballot box. If any ballot was placed incorrectly all votes by that person were illegal. Later in the 1880s southern states brought in grandfather clauses- you could only vote if your grandfather did. This meant that slaves were not eligible to vote.

ON VOCAL SANCTIONS — edvard munch looks back through time as max headroom — not a scream, a full belly laugh of joy : ishootwindows, san francisco (2013)

"on vocal sanctions and why the use of this technique is often spiritually reprehensible"

in the 21st century we have psychologically perfected the game of tag.

and vocal sanctions — controlled communication techniques — play a huge part in the silent war games of modern relationships.

last year, in august, two hugely important people imposed vocal sanctions against me.
and, i’m sure it’s been done before.
but neither one indicated it.

one just checked out completely and the other made an unspoken decision to "accept my calls", but not to make any in return (it turns out his reasons for imposing these vocal sanctions were because he had a new boyfriend but wasn’t brave enough to tell me and wasn’t supposed to be talking to me at all — LAME!!!! 🙂

since childhood, many of us have seen the saying — "talk only when you have to and never write at all". of course, this is the mantra of the lawyer, not the artist, the creator, the writer or any who have a truly open heart.

i think we all know that it is those who fear themselves who create fear in others.

so what are vocal sanctions and how can YOU use them to better your life? heheheh, just kidding, but sometimes i can’t help myself.

vocal sanctions take on many forms. therapists in all fields of mental health breakdown almost always encourage their "patients" (oh, come on, let’s just call them CLIENTS!!!!) to explore this strangely powerful field of communication control.

for instance, the silent treatment, an age old communication torture practice which can destablize and destroy children’s sense of self worth and ego has long been applied by parents and older siblings to smaller and more fragile and vulnerable children or siblings. this is just one of the many techniques and methods of delivering vocal sanctions.

when language and connection have been patternistically established through routine or repetition, that’s when vocal sanctions have the most power. as mentioned before, vocal sanctions are used to fracture relationships, so they "break" the normalized patterns. therapists claim that this is necessary, but they never take any responsibility for the fall out that "fracturing" causes instead of teaching methods for kind termination or gentle disassociation.

anyway, in order to use vocal sanctions, by decree, there must be a power imbalance in the relationship. vocal sanctions can be levied to either increase the disparity between two people or to exacerbate the tensions between people.

either way, vocal sanctions are a manipulative, crafted and premeditated response to the failings of the human condition. vocal sanctions are calculated and often never discussed before being imposed secretly. thus, a fracturing is made, but that fracturing is one which sneaks up like a fault-line on a southern california suburb development.

spiritually, this practice is for cowards.

the spiritual outcome and sorrow that comes from waging a vocal sanctions war against another human extends far beyond the intended victim. the impact of this technique, in undermining the ego of the person it is levied against, takes away from many people.

because vocal sanctions are spiritually immature and the direct result of modern "therapy teaching", which exults the separation of individuals and creates a cash market out of people’s life problems and their ability to see how they handle their life problems, the use of vocal sanctions is most likely petulant and comes from a place of hurt and unhappiness.

and often, like the AIDS epidemic in south africa, sanctions are more likely to be used to HIDE a much greater and deeper atroctiy.

the u.s. levied sanctions against south africa in the 80s and helped to redirect world attention away from the rapidly spreading and killer disease. by focusing attention on nelson mandela and freedom and bishop tutu, the world failed to see how AIDS was ravaging millions and millions of black africans sitting on some of the most coveted lands in the world…

so, too, vocal sanctions, when levied by the weak, or the hurt or the injured are generally a prime indicator that cowardice is the motivation.

personally, my ego being easily bigger than this building in the photo, i didn’t even notice that i had been vocally sanctioned. it has taken me nine months to come to the realization.

but i have a very busy life and can barely call myself back to say hi these days. so it took a long time to figure out that i’d been vocally sanctioned off.

and, oddly/honestly, of the two people that levied sanctions against me, i only want to hear from one. and yesterday, after finally having a meltdown, i realized that the sound of someone’s voice can be something we remember forever. and in not being able to hear a voice, one can wish for it like a favorite song.

and i miss your voice. but i respect your reasons for vocally sanctioning me. and i love you. and if all you can read are these words, i hope they sound like a voice in the back of your head. and i’m proud of you and happy for you in your new life that i know absolutely nothing about.
