The First visual off G.Bags 3rd installment of the YFFR series, we bring you 518 Hope. Directed, Shot, and Edited by WiseMind Films, we see G.Bags and Shave Bird spit over Faboulous’ “The Hope” off the Soul Tape 3 mixtape. In this track G.Bags sticks to what he know which is #HardBars and NY Love. It’s no secret that G.Bags reps NY all day and he provided us with some memorable lines such as “I’m from the era of the clue tapes, had to keep my boots laced/kill a nigga with an old gun, catch a new case” obviously paying homage to D.J Clue’s mixtape series back in the 90’s. Everybody had a dub of a clue tape, it was essential to have back in those days if you were a real Hip-Hop head. Another quotable off the track is “we from New York, why ya’ll acting like chicago niggas?” This line stood out the most because if you look around we have tons of new artist and even some established ones from NY, that if you didnt know any better you would think came from Chief Keef’s neck of the woods. Now while there is nothing wrong with embracing a different sound, and style but ultimately you must be true to your roots. G.Bags also has a knack for finding a way to include current events into his rhymes in a matter that doesn’t seem forced, he raps “These dudes a cold rats, these are known facts/ Thats why I don’t fuck with you niggas, like the clippers owner” This being a play off the whole Donald Sterling debacle that occurred recently. Not only was Donald Sterling used for inspiration, Jay-Z’s now infamous run in with sister-in law Solange was also used as fuel, “Internet thugs, online they hella gangsta/ see me in and wont do nothing, they Beyonce in the elevator”. Shave Bird comes in on the second half of the song and does not disappoint. His flow is smooth and compliments G.Bags more aggressive demeanor. Bird spits, “Chain Husky and the wrist game looking stupid/Yellow cannery diamonds, but the bezel looking blueish”, Bird captivates the listener with colorful imagery but still manages to feed the streets ears with “Man I love that money so the coke talk is fluent/like 6 grams on an ounce make a fiend stupid”. Overall The track does not disappoint unless you looking for catchy hooks, and nursery rhymes. Go and get your copy of YFFR3 now here only $5 and well worth it!
In today’s musical landscape you don’t see too many artist (outside of the mainstream) who take their time putting a project together. Most of the time artist will release a freestyle here and there to the latest track that’s buzzing on the radio, and will drop a few other singles before slapping all these random songs together and calling it a mixtape. The market is so overwhelmingly saturated with music that mixtapes come and go at the drop of hat and WE, the consumer, don’t even realize it unless it comes from a big name artist that is force fed to us through radio and TV. Imagine how difficult it is for an Independent artist to separate themselves from the thousands of other trying to make it. As hard as it is to market your project without a big budget or record label behind you, it still can be done. Take G.Bags (YFFR) for example, who is making his return to the music scene 06/25/14 with the release of his 3rd solo mixtape YFFR3. Since he dropped YFFR1 on March 9th 2011 Bags has made it very clear that he is a firm believer in #BarsoverBullshit. His Lyric heavy mixtapes have garnered him tons of fans in the 518 and beyond that genuinely support his music and are actually excited for his newest release. This time around Bags opted to not just release a few songs for the public’s listening pleasure, instead he decided to market his project on social media in the form of promo videos sampling different songs of the project. The anticipation for YFFR3 is getting stronger by the day and the beauty of it is people are actually re-posting the promo video on their own accord simply because they support this mans effort to promote his project. In his latest Promo video, G.Bags is joined by Sidney McDonald of EveriExposure.com to promote YFFR3.
