New Music: Bruno Mars, Trina, Nicki Minaj, Lady Saw, and Jeezy

Bruno Mars

B.o.B’s “Nothin’ on You” served as a launch pad for Bruno Mars’ promising career. Now armed with a No. 1 single, the Hawaiian-born singer, songwriter, and producer shows us what we can look forward to on his Elektra Records debut EP It’s Better If You Don’t Understand, due May 11.

Trina

Trina and Nicki Minaj don’t need a man to provide for them. The independent ladies are clear about the only thing they’re after on the raunchy “Dang a Lang” from Trina’s new album Amazin’ (May 4). Dancehall queen Lady Saw seasons the track with some island flavor.

Young Jeezy

Jay-Z may call himself the greatest rapper alive, but Jeezy is claiming the title of “Greatest Trapper Alive.” Jay Jenkins gets cocky with his flow on the first offering from his Don Cannon-hosted mixtape Trap or Die II: By Any Means Necessary.

    I like Trina and all but she has not changed one bit. All her songs are about the same damn thing.

    Kyle, i agree with you. She shows no growth in her music or lyrics. She’s never going to sell albums when she never changes it up. I’m not hating, just telling the truth.

    Although, Nicki did kill it in her verse. Trina shouldn’t let Nicki show her up in her own song.

    @Kyle, i definitely co-sign that statement. You would think that after being in the rap game 10 yrs she would be rapping about something else besides being the baddest, sex, & money. I like her but she is sad. She’s a 30 something yr old kid. She brags about being in the game 10 yrs but she doesn’t have any platinum albums & no grammy. She has accomplished nothing in her 10 yrs. I like her & i respect the fact she is getting money but i have no respect for her as a woman and if you listen closely 2 her lyrics she sucks terribly. Her wordplay & flow is utter trash. I’m not a Nicki fan but nicki murdered her on her own track. Lady Saw ripped it as usual. The hook & the beat are the best.

    bruno mars: i thought this was “even angels” by fantasia when i was first listening to it. he kind of sounds like avery storm in the chorus. ill be checking to hear what he has to offer.

    trina: this song is neither hot nor not. its just background music to me. trina needs to stop with all the raunch sex appeal raps. like we get it, baddest bitch/diamond princess..sure sure but what else is there to trina?

    jeezy: its alright. when is the album coming?

    Bruno was cool, I like his voice. Near the end he kinda yelled at one point for no reason(it ain’t sound good), but other than that it was good.

    I actually kind of liked Trina’s song… she is talking about the same thing, but she actually did decent on this song, Nicki’s verse leaked long time ago it was cool.

    Jeezy is Jeezy, not interested, but wasn’t bad.

    “Although, Nicki did kill it in her verse. Trina shouldn’t let Nicki show her up in her own song.”

    that made ME laugh because that’s exactly what happened to Jay-Z on Renegade. Imagine.. getting completely destroyed by your guest artist.

    Personally I don’t get if you mesh together like Red and Meth or Paul Wall and Chamillionaire or if someone clearly outclasses like with Renegade as long as there’s some heat on the track I’m cool with it.
