WTF Song: 50 Cent & Soulja Boy – “Mean Mug”

Where to begin on this new track titled “Mean Mug” from Soulja Boy and 50 Cent. I get that it’s suppose to be a “fuck you” to their haters but they have put together some of the most unintimidating disses..well..ever, not to mention the weak beat. On the bright side…they could get into the Guinness Book of World Records for most use of “fuck” and the n-word in one song which isn’t exactly what I look for in my rap songs. Honestly Soulja Boy needs to go away forever and now 50 Cent is right back to zero on his “comeback”. Do people actually listen to this crap?

Stream: John Legend and The Roots – “Wake Up”

Stream the new John Legend and The Roots collaborative album Wake Up via NPR until a week after it’s release date on September 21. I haven’t been too thrilled by anything Legend has done since his debut album so I am quite pleased by what I am hearing so far off this one which includes some cover renditions of classic songs by Marvin Gaye and Nina Simone.. If you are into 1960’s soul music then you will probably as well enjoy.
