Following the success of his last song Megahit, Anson Lo from boy group Cantopop Mirror has just released a remix version called Megahit Megamix.

The remix includes a whole new set of rap lyrics – in English, no less – written by the singer himself.

Here is part of the lyrics:

I see you, touch you, met you
I wanna know you, feel you, get clues
I think about you like all the time
We’ll shoot, stir like in no time
This is the feeling that we have
This is the song that we vibrate
Participation is the framework
No one knows us here while we relax

As the song Megahit carries the message about how people can overcome their differences in relationships through communication, Lo said in his Instagram story on Wednesday December 1 that he wrote the English rap lyrics in response to Megahit. focusing on communication in romantic relationships. .

“It describes the feelings of wooing the other side and convincing the other side,” he explained. “I hope everyone likes this new interpretation.”

While there is currently no music video for Megahit Megamix, Lo shared a 16-second concept video for the remix on his Instagram. The teaser features Lo in a simple monochrome, paired with Megahit’s earworm phrase “oh-uh oh-uh oh-uh”.

Fans found the remix song refreshing special, and I love it when Lo sing in english. Others were impressed with his self-written english rap lyrics, which apparently emit masculinity.

Megahit Megamix marks the second time that Lo has written the lyrics to his own songs. The first was his second solo single Burnout, released in August 2020.

Kendall’s obsession with rap speaks volumes about the show’s relationship to race. https://wmgd.net/kendalls-obsession-with-rap-speaks-volumes-about-the-shows-relationship-to-race/ Mon, 29 Nov 2021 03:00:00 +0000 https://wmgd.net/kendalls-obsession-with-rap-speaks-volumes-about-the-shows-relationship-to-race/ Some of the most iconic presences in fiction are more memorable to mention than actually encountered: Moby-Dick, Kurtz, Godot, the Tiny Wu-Tang Clan.

Some of the most iconic presences in fiction are more memorable to mention than actually encountered: Moby-Dick, Kurtz, Godot, the Tiny Wu-Tang Clan. The last of these is from the most recent episode of Succession, “Too much birthday”And refers to a group of children performing covers of the Wu-Tang Clan, intended to be a highlight of Kendall Roy’s 40th birthday.e birthday party. Viewers never really got to see the band because Kendall cancels their performance before they could take the stage, after the night didn’t live up to their expectations. (Things rarely do for Kendall these days.)

It’s a joke, but the implications of which may seem a bit nauseous the more you think about it. them.

As established in Successionpilot, when he prepares for a reunion by rapping “An Open Letter to NYC” by the Beastie Boys in the back of a limousine, Kendall Roy is a fan of hip-hop, especially hip-hop a vintage from the 90s, a facet of his character that is on display several times throughout the new episode. The marquee above the entrance to his party reads “The Notorious KEN: Ready to Die, “while the event’s playlist includes period classics like the hit produced by DJ Premier of KRS-One”MCs act like they don’t know. “And Kendall’s fandom isn’t the only way for hip-hop Succession. The influence of the music is unmistakable in Nicholas Britell’s much loved score, in which majestic and classic melodies slide over boom-bap drum loops. (Britell is awesome, but Automator did better.) In 2019, Britell and Pusha T even collaborated on “Puppets”, A rap remix of the Succession theme.

SuccessionThe relationship of ‘with hip-hop – which is always carried out at arm’s length ironic, even when the music takes center stage – strikes me more and more as a kind of microcosm of the relationship between the show and the the race. The spectacle’s presentation of a definitively black working-class musical form against a background of white wealth is certainly a nod to the privileged obscurity of its characters (especially Kendall), but it also resonates like a metonymy by inadvertence of Black’s rather stunted stance. characters in the world of the series itself. It’s a joke, but the implications can be a little nauseous the more you think about it.

Historically astute hip-hop fans already know that Kendall’s musical preoccupations are a nod to one of the strangest footnotes in rap industry history. In 1995 Brian Brater and Jarret Myer founded Rawkus Records with financial support from their former Horace Mann classmate James Murdoch. The following year, Murdoch’s father Rupert bought a controlling stake in the young record company. In the second half of the 1990s, Rawkus would become one of the most influential labels of its time, releasing beloved compilation series like Lyricists Fair and Sound bombardment as well as back-to-back rap classics that define the era like Company Flow’s Funcrusher More and Black Star Mos Def and Talib Kweli are Black Star. As a teenager who vacuumed these and other tracks on Rawkus, I don’t even remember if I was aware that the guy who owned the most popular “underground” label in the game owned also News Corp; if so, it was only weakly.

Succession never directly imply that there is something similar in Kendall’s own past; Since Kendall is only 40, he would’ve been a teenager in Rawkus’ heyday, not to mention most of the other raps he names on the series. (When Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 rooms released in 1993, Kendall wouldn’t have been much older than the Tiny Wu-Tang Clan themselves.) But it’s still evident that as a youngster he associated music with freshness and transgression, an imagined authenticity and danger that we can only imagine was particularly appealing to someone whose socio-economic circumstances offered very little of either. At times when his family and business worlds close in on him, Kendall seems to retreat into the rebellious fantasies that music has long offered.

Succession is not a very diverse spectacle, a condition which is undoubtedly integrated into its subject. The elite corridors of power of American corporations that Succession the representations have been predominantly Caucasian for as long as they have existed. Succession is also, unequivocally, a show about awful people. With the exception of Greg, who is too far into comedic relief to serve as a meaningful pivot for audience identification, every main character in the series is despicable. The degrees of contempt may differ, but it is often more a mere opportunity than anyone’s moral compass.

The vanity of Succession So allows the series to relegate non-white characters, particularly black ones, to secondary roles, while ensuring that these characters won’t be treated particularly well. A recent example is high-powered lawyer Lisa Arthur (Sanaa Lathan in an underwritten role), whom Kendall snatches under the noses of her siblings, then dumps abruptly, convinced he knows what is best for her. legal strategy. (Indications so far: he doesn’t.) It’s a blatant and disrespectful move, one that it’s hard to imagine duplicating with one of the older, whiter lawyers that his father prefers.

It doesn’t mean that Succession is a racist spectacle, simply that its whiteness allows it to avoid confronting the subject of race with real complexity, which is of course one of the many advantages that whiteness has historically conferred on true whites. It should be noted, however, that a show with such a low interest in true black people would feature hip-hop music in such a prominent and often memorable way. SuccessionThe most notorious hip-hop moment of “Dundee”, the eighth episode of season 2.e birthday gala for her father, Kendall takes the stage and takes off his jacket to reveal a Logan Roy themed baseball jersey, then proceeds to serenade her bewildered father with “L to OG», A rap he wrote for the occasion. Soon he coaxed the whole gala into a singalong, a cringe-worthy tour de force in a show that has no shortage of them. (The trail was later released as a single.)

Kendall’s self-esteem for hip-hop is always presented in a comedic vein. The idea of ​​Tiny Wu-Tang Clan is fun, as is his father’s birthday serenade; we laugh and grin. The most delicate question is Why it’s funny why the show’s use of music produces this particular form of comedic discomfort. And I think a lot of it comes down to running. It’s funny because (almost) everyone is white: the Roy family, the crowd at the birthday gala, the target audience for Tiny Wu-Tang Clan. The level of irony at which this particular humor operates is one that the show can only harness because of its whiteness, which is a bit disturbing when you consider who really created hip-hop music.

One of the most difficult feats Succession must succeed is to maintain a moral center in the midst of the immorality of its characters; without that balance, it ceases to function as satire and simply becomes luxury porn against the backdrop of cruelty, or cruelty porn against the backdrop of luxury. Until recently, I felt that the third season of the show had focused too much on internal power struggles while losing sight of the larger ramifications; it was just asking viewers to choose a team, while the only correct answer should not be any of them. The last two episodes seemed like a necessary course correction: Episode 6, “What It Takes,” reminded us that the subject of “L to the OG” lends itself to the support of a white supremacist fascist for the president. , while “Too Much Birthday” reminds us that Roman, who has always been the most nihilistic character on the show, might just walk away with the brass ring because of the fact that he’s a monster, not despite it.

Always, SuccessionThe clumsiness of the breed reveals the tension of this balance. This is a show in which whites mostly treat non-whites meanly when they have to interact with them, and it is sometimes unclear whether the show satirizes this dynamic. or just treat it like a joke we’re all on, which isn’t the same. (This begs the question, on the one hand, of who “we” are.) Likewise, SuccessionThe relationship between hip-hop and hip-hop must be shrouded in irony to anticipate more thorny questions about the show’s own racial politics. There’s a point in “What It Takes” where Tom tells Greg that the right-hand function they’re attending is “a nice, safe space where you don’t have to pretend to like. Hamilton“—A lame and dated line that gnawed at me, and not because I’m a fan of Hamilton. I couldn’t tell who was supposed to be the butt of the joke: Tom, for not loving him? Greg, for sincerely protesting this? The sickening but well-intentioned integrationism of Hamilton himself? I’m not even sure the show knows the answer. We had better laugh and not ask.

Whenever Rolling Loud announces a new festival, there are a few artists that you can almost always expect to see on the lineup. One of these names belongs to the Florida underground rap phenomenon, Pouya.

Since the inception of the world’s largest hip-hop festival, Rolling Loud, Pouya has rocked the scene in Miami, California, New York City and everywhere in between. At this point, he’s a mainstay of Rolling Loud, performing fan favorites including “Suicidal Thoughts in the Back of the Cadillac,” as well as new moshpit-compatible discs like the Curry Denzel– assisted “Wig Split”.

At just 26, Pouya has built a legacy beyond music, portraying a neglected figure in hip-hop and emerging from the underground to become one of Florida’s most popular artists, though he never switched to a mainstream favorite. Pouya still does exactly what first brought him notoriety, and he continues to evolve as an artist, especially on his last album Blood has never been thicker than water.

Exploring different musical genres on the project, including jazz and other styles, Pouya has stayed true to himself and opened up like never before. We caught up with the rapper backstage at Rolling Loud New York last month, where we talked about his status as a Rolling Loud mainstay, his fitness journey, his anxiety, the current state of rap in Florida and, of course, his new album.

Read the full editorial copy of HNHH’s new interview with Pouya below and watch it on tour with Jasiah before the end of the year.

HNHH: What was it like playing this year at Rolling Loud New York? And are there any differences between the crowds in Miami and New York?

Pouya: The atmosphere is great, the energy is great. I feel like in New York we have to really work hard to please the public. Somewhere like Miami, they don’t care. They just want to happen. But in New York, they want to hear you, and if you’re not fired, they’re not really gonna… I knew when I got on stage that I was really going to have to screw my ass, or they weren’t going to fuck with it. me.

Certainly. You just released your new album, how’s it going with that?

I just released my new album, Blood has never been thicker than water. It’s going great. It is very well received. About to go on tour – tickets sell, merch sells. I am so blessed. I’m so grateful right now for the way my album is going. People love it and I am honored.

How does your new album differ from your old catalog?

All my albums, I always try to enter a new world. If you listen to my albums, an album won’t sound like the last one. It doesn’t mean that one album is particularly better than the other, they’re just different. I have the impression that this album is more jazzy. I did a lot of slower, jazzy music… this album was more instrumental – a lot of saxophone, violin and piano. I was very inspired by the movie Taxi, the soundtrack of this film. I really loved that soundtrack, and when I heard it, I was like, “I want to try and incorporate these jazzy sounds with some rap music”, and I feel like I’ve had enough. well done on the album.

Are you excited about the upcoming tour? A few years ago, when you were going to Europe, you were talking about how your anxiety affected the trip for you.

I always have a lot of anxiety before the shows, but I’m still excited because the shows are great, and once on stage all that anxiety goes away because the crowd is showing me so much love. It is before the shows that anxiety strikes. But I love this.

You’ve been working on your fitness this year, building up muscles and keeping your fans informed throughout the trip. What inspired the change?

Honestly, what really inspired me was that I was just looking at myself one day and I was like, “I’m a skinny little bitch, I need some muscle.” I love myself. I like the way I look anyway, but I was like, “I’ll probably look better with a few muscles,” and I’ll be healthier too. It’s really more for your health. I knew it would help my anxiety. I knew it would help with depression and all types of mental issues. I knew it would be good for my life and there would be some benefits to it.

Absoutely. You’ve performed in many Rolling Loud festivals at this point. What keeps you coming back?

I was there since the very first Rolling Loud. Matt and Tariq, the guys who run Rolling Loud, are great friends of mine. They always take care of me, they always make sure I’m booked, they always put me on the best stages, they give me whatever I want, they watch my set. I am so thankful for these guys. I will always support Rolling Loud because they supported me from day one.

What do you think of the current state of rap in Florida?

It’s good. We have a lot of great rappers. We have Curry Denzel, we have me, we have Fat Nick… Ski Mask the Slump God, DJ Scheme. There are too many to count. It’s good. We all support each other, and it’s a family there.

What’s in store for you next?

Music videos: more music, more albums, more mixtapes, more tours. I feel like I’m still a long way from my summit or my summit. I feel like I have so much time to say what I have to say. Just more music.

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving and are enjoying some free time! It’s predictable a much lighter week for new albums, but the last week has been stacked, so now is a good time to catch up on any of the 15+ albums we reviewed last week or find something you haven’t yet heard from any of the year-end lists coming out. And even though it’s a lighter holiday week, there are still a handful of great records out there today. I highlight six below, and Bill also takes a look at The KVB, Jarvis Cocker’s remix album, and more in Bill’s Indie Basement.

More Honorable Mentions: Voices, Richard Dawson & Circle, TEETH, Botfly, the chisel, Pass Away (mem I Am The Avalanche, Crime In Stereo), the Girl Ray EP remix, the cover album Deep Purple, the live album Death Angel, the Sunn O))) the BBC session album (ft . Anna Von Hausswolff), Nell & The Flaming Lips cover album Nick Cave, the Helmet live album and the David Bowie box set (including the “lost” album Toy).

Read on for my choices. What’s your favorite outing of the week?

RAP Ferreira – Light-Emitting Diamond Cutter’s Writings
Ruby Yacht

The prolific underground rap rap RAP Ferreira (formerly known as milo, sometimes also known as Hotel aux coquilles Saint-Jacques) kicked off the year with the release of Bob’s son on New Years Day, and now he has another new album on Black Friday, Light-Emitting Diamond Cutter’s Writings. Compared to the often abstract Bob’s son, Light-Emitting Diamond Cutter’s Writings feels a bit more traditional, with a warm production derived from jazz, soul and psychedelia, and tight rhymes and in the pocket of RAP Ferreira. Yet “traditional” is relative in this context; RAP Ferreira’s version of hip hop remains experimental and avant-garde. It uses elements from the golden age of rap, but reshapes those sounds into something futuristic. And his words remain surreal and mindful, painting vivid images in your mind and conveying raw emotion as well.

Lock – The dregs of Hades
Listenable recordings

Last week we received the new album from The Lurking Fear, the old school style death metal band led by At The Gates singer Tomas Lindberg, and today we have a new album from another band by Tomas Lindberg, the Lock Up grindcore supergroup. Lock Up, which was formed in 1998 by Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury, had Lindberg on vocals from 2002 to 2014, but he left and was replaced by Kevin Sharp of Brutal Truth (who also leads Shane Embury’s band Venomous Concept) for 2017 Demonization. Now Lindberg is back and co-chairing the group with Kevin, and they’ve also welcomed Pig Destroyer’s Adam Jarvis as their new drummer. With Anton Reisenegger (Criminal) on guitar, Lock Up is more “awesome” than ever. Similar to The Lurking Fear, Lock Up gives Tomas Lindberg a chance to make music a lot faster and rawer than he does with At The Gates (which also released a new album this year), and it’s is always a pleasure to hear icons like these make such purely dirty music so far in their careers. It’s been a while since Napalm Death and Pig Destroyer released such a whiplash-inducing record, and The dregs of Hades proves that these grindcore architects still know how to throw as they did when they started.

Defee & Messiah Musik – Hatch
Backwoodz Studioz

Chicago rapper Defcee is a longtime staple of his hometown’s underground rap scene (his 2015 album Almost grown shit featured collaborations with Saba, Noname, and Joseph Chilliams before these artists exploded), and while he’s taken some time off from music, he’s been more prolific than ever over the past two years. He released the EP produced by August Fanon We dressed the city with our names earlier this year, and now he’s teamed up with Billy Woods’ Backwoodz Studioz for a new album, Hatch, produced entirely by Messiah Musik, who has worked on several Billy Woods / Armand Hammer albums, as well as other Mach-Hommy Backwoodz releases and projects, Your Old Droog, Quelle Chris, and more. “His work reminds me of what I loved about RZA rhythms when I first discovered Wu Tang”, Defcee noted of Messiah Musik. “‘Dusty buckles, heavy bag drums’ to quote Billy Woods.” Armand Hammer appears on the album, as do ShrapKnel members PremRock and Curly Castro (whose new album Little Robert Hutton includes Defcee), as well as Henry Canyons, Convertible Ashley, Joshua Virtue, Freddie Ol Soul and Alaska. Messiah Musik’s production style will be very familiar to Backwoodz fans, and Dedefee’s tough delivery suits him perfectly. Defcee is a rapper who is often referred to as “underrated”, and if you always sleep on him, wake up and listen to this album.

The dirty radicals – The fine line between real and crazy PE
Stomp Records

If you’re not familiar, Stomp Records was founded by Montreal ska-punk legends The Planet Smashers in 1994 and has released records by a handful of classic ska-punk bands (as well as bands from other genres. ), and Stomp played a crucial role in the recent resurgence of ska as well. They co-released Joystick’s excellent new album with Bad Time Records earlier this year, and today they’re releasing another of the best ska-punk releases I’ve heard in 2021: The fine line between real and crazy, the latest EP from Toronto band The Filthy Radicals. Prior to that, The Filthy Radicals had just released the Freedom 45 EP on Cursed Blessings Records last month, but Thin line feels like a notable milestone. It has a much bigger and clearer output, but doesn’t tame the gnarly sound of the Filthy Radicals at all. Across the EP’s first five songs, they deliver heart-breaking ska-punk / ska-core in the vein of bands like Choking Victim, Operation Ivy, and Against All Authority, and even in that context, there’s a fair amount. from musical diversity, from hardcore inducing circles to slower rocksteady and lots of in-between. (And her sixth and final track is a country song.) It’s not necessarily something you’ve never heard before, but The Filthy Radicals does. really good.

Remedy – Cure Meets Wu-Tang
RemedyRoss Music

The Staten Island Remedy Rapper has been affiliated with the Wu-Tang Clan since appearing on the 1998 Wu-Tang Killa Bees compilation Swarm, and now he’s roped up several Wu-Tang members / affiliates (Ghostface Killah, RZA, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, Masta Killa, Shyheim, Killah Priest, Solomon Childs, Trife Diesel and StreetLife), plus Conway The from Griselda Machine, for his first new album in over a decade, Cure Meets Wu-Tang. It was almost entirely produced by Ghostface / Inspectah Deck collaborator Danny Caiazzo, and it features at least one Wu-Tang member on almost every track. Remedy might have a history as a supporting cast member, but here he’s the director and the star, and he’s also given us something that pretty much counts as a new Wu-Tang album. From production to rap, everything seems to come straight out of the mid-90s, and the low-stakes rawness makes it refreshing. And if this is your introduction to Remedy, it’s a plus that he also included his signature song “Never Again” (from Swarm and several Remedy solo albums), in which the Jewish rapper approaches the history of the Holocaust in an incredibly personal way, drawing on the real-life experiences that his own family members had during this time. tragic.

Julie Doiron – I thought about you
You have changed

Longtime singer-songwriter, former Eric’s Trip member and Mount Eerie collaborator Julie Doiron has kept busy, but hasn’t released her own solo album in nine years. This is now changing with I thought about you – which she did with Daniel Romano, Ian Romano and Dany Placard – and it stays true to the kind of folk indie rock that Julie has been offering since the 90s. Bill talks more about it in Bill’s Indie Basement.

It took less than two years for “Life Is Good” to become Diamond.

This week has been very kind to Future. Along with celebrating his 38th birthday with a Mafia-themed party and a private Dave & Buster party, Future took a big step forward for his 2020 single.

Last night, Future manager Dwight Elder posted an Instagram story of Future receiving his diamond plaque for his January 2020 song “Life Is Good” with Duck.

The song peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and ended up receiving the remix treatment with little baby and DaBaby added.

“Life Is Good” was also included in Futurethe eighth studio album by Long service life since last May. The album peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The entire album was certified Platinum in July.

“Life Is Good” was produced by D. Hill, a frequent contributor to Future and Duck. D. Hill died in October, so it’s a shame that he couldn’t see his most successful song achieve RIAA diamond status.

In the video posted by Elder, it appears that Future and a group of his close friends associated with Freebandz were having dinner and gifted him with the plaque as part of a big celebration.

This is now Future and Drake’s first collaboration to become Diamond, although many of their previous hits have reached multi-platinum status. Songs like “Jumpman” from their 2015 collaborative album What time to live is 5x Platinum and DS2 hit “Where Ya At” is 4x Platinum.

Future and Drake have established themselves as one of the most cohesive and compatible duos of the last 10 years of rap.

Rap Song of the Week lists the essential rap and hip-hop tracks that you must hear every week. Check out the full playlist here. This week, Lil Wayne is hopping on the “ooh la la” remix from Run the Jewels.


Blending the cutting edge sensibilities of Run the Jewels with their love for hip-hop Golden Era through contributions from legendary Greg Nice and DJ Premier, “ooh la la” instantly became a standout entry in their catalog when released in 2020 For the remix, El-P and Killer Mike recruited Lil Wayne, another veteran MC who has nothing to prove in the depths of his career but continues to pit himself against the best rappers of all generations.

Only getting better with age when he turns 39 in September, Wayne has enjoyed a hot streak this year, appearing on tracks alongside rappers he’s inspired such as Polo G and Roddy Ricch all. also assisting his protégé Drake and Nicki Minaj. On “ooh la la,” Weezy’s bravado and endless flow is a nice addition to the track, as he crams internal rhymes into each line while yelling at his collaborators.

“I can shakalaka explode your medulla oblongata,” Tunechi raps. “Kill a mic like El-P and Killer Mike, I feel like / DJ Premier, this is my world premiere tonight, I feel great.” While the rest of the track is unchanged, Wayne’s contribution makes Run the Jewel’s already excellent track even better.

The collaboration is also the latest example of how hip-hop has matured as a genre. At this point, an MC is no longer expected to fall when they reach a certain age; instead, really great rappers find a way to fit in with the times without losing what made them great.
