SL Jones - Actin' Bad

"Actin' Bad," produced by Blitz, seemingly plays as a cold hearted and reckless day-in-the-life account, the song was penned – therapeutically, almost – as SL went through the process of putting recent adversity in the rearview. "I've been dealing with a lot of stress lately due to my current legal situation," explains SL. "At some point you just gotta say 'Fuck it'; sitting around feeling sorry for yourself isn't gonna change anything. I'm gonna face this – or any situation – with my head held high."
And with "Actin' Bad," SL balances his uncertainty with defiance, a mix of positive sentiment ("I'm moving forward regardless/ I call it positive yardage",) with the kind slick brash talk that likely earned the song its title. "I ain't got no Grammy for my mammy/ Or no Oscar for my pops," raps SL, "But I got real gangsters in my family/ No imposters on my block/ Some of my ni**as been to prison/ Some of my partners done been shot/ All of my dogs stay on call – rise or fall – they're all I got." 
SL Jones' new mixtape, Flight Risk, will be released on December 14th and includes production from Lex Luger, Shawty Redd, Sonny Digital, Young L, Metro Beatz, and more.

Review: T-Pain - rEVOLVEr

T-Pain Continues to Stay Relevant
By Mike Andrews

T-Pain is corny. Let’s just all admit that and get that out of the way. From the visuals for the street single “Booty Wurk” all the way back to the ode to those topless dancers, “I’m In Luv With a Stripper”, there’s just no denying it. 
However, for some reason, T-Pain’s corniness is what makes him so successful in this industry. Nearly three years after his last physical album release, Thr33 Ringz, T-Pain comes back and proves he’s still relevant with his latest release, Revolver. 
On Revolver, T-Pain doesn’t stray from his usual formula of incorporating his signature auto-tuned voice over hard-hitting bass lines (“Bang Bang Pow Pow”) and smooth slow jams (“Mix’d Girl”). The album, clocking in at just over 52 minutes total, seems to fly by, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. 
While a love song based around a social networking feature (“Default Picture”) sounds like an automatic miss for any artist over the age of 18, he somehow makes it one of the most enjoyable tracks on the album. While he slips the autotune in here and there, this song shows this man really knows how to sing. 
On top of singing, let’s not forget the man can rap, too. Don’t forget the debut album, Rappa Turnt Sanga, where he confessed he used to rap. The rapping on Revolver is a refreshing sound as there’s just something about a hyped-up autotuned voice that sounds good over blaring 808s and hi-hats.
