Today’s pick was a bit unexpected, as I had something totally different planned for Wednesday of Bump week. However, I was chatting with rapper/producer extraordinaire and close friend of Bump J, Cayex Illah, and he blessed me with something exclusive.
Rewind 2+ years ago to the release of Bump’s last *official* mixtape, Dinner Time. Now, when this mixtape dropped, it did not include (at least in my file/post) a back cover or tracklist – so you can forget about any production credits. To this day I still don’t know who produced gems like “Chevy Fresh Out”, “No New Nz”, “Dinner Time” – and one of my favorite joints “I Can Handle It”.
“State Prop, Chi-Town Division” – Beans
Last week, I reported that Beanie Sigel was in Chicago and was contemplating moving (or expanding) his State Property operations to the Middle of the Map – Chi-Town to be exact. Beans popped up at celeb open-mic nights, recording sessions and radio stations, and is reportedly buying (or has bought) a house here. I also noted that he’s been working closely with Chicago artist and entrepreneur King The Hood Savior, and today I have one of their first recordings together.
King and Beans, on their Hov & Ye shit, team up to take down Jay’s “Hate”, which was produced by and features Kanye. However, Ye and Jay don’t get off so easy as Beans and King take a few jabs at the last of the Roc. First, King scolds Kanye for shouting out Larry Hoover in “Hate” and then passes the mic to Beanie Mac who spits:
Middle finger up to Jayeeeer
I don’t give a fuck about Ye’eeer
Wanna know, I think Ye Queeeeer
He dress Gayeeeeer
I heard he takes it in his reeeeear
You should know by now I don’t caaaaare
Damn. Remember them days? Hit the jump for the track…

Kanye isn’t the only one with Power around here. I mean, what, you didn’t think Mike Flo was going to tackle a song named after his tagline? ‘Zyou crazy?

I guess it’s beef season on FSD right now. Does that kick off in the late summer? Kind of like college football?
Anyhoo, after Soulja Boy’s nose candy fiasco with Kat Stacks yesterday, Berg, a foe of Soulja (remember Soulja Boy once famously purchased Yung Berg’s Transformers train) has let loose this diss, which takes pot shots at Mr. Pretty Boy Swag himself. Hence the name of the song.
