Fashawn – Memory Lane

fashawn-how-the-grinch-stole-christmas

Just wanted to thank everybody for their support in 2009. I couldn’t have been asked for a better group of colleagues, fans, and team to help get my music out to the masses. I’m gonna drop this project I actually wrote and recorded in a week while living in LA last summer before I did The Antidote [mixtape with Alchemist.] I chose to hold off on it for a while, but feel 2010 is the perfect time to let my fans hear it. Here’s a little taste of it.

Shout outs to Green Lantern for lacing me with instrumentals, to Large Pro for helping me get what is almost impossible to get and to one of the best poets to ever live who inspired me to do what I do. Look for more music, collabs and shows for 2010. God Bless and Thanks again.

    Boy Meets World is kinda dope.

    Oh and Detroit P/J. Browns wasn’t wack..

  3. Smoke Greene Says:

    Exibit A > Exhibit C

    As far as instrumentals go
    ^
    I think you’re right, and possibly the actual song as well.
    ======================================
    I been saying this.

    Exhibit C got more hype but I only have the instrumental version of Exhibit A on my iPod…cause I’ve memorized the lyrics and I like to rap along to the beat lol. I don’t know the last song before that opne where I actually cared enough to memorize the lyrics…prolly was a Jay Electronica one.

    And Boy Meets World was disappointing.

    –still havent heard this

  5. Dewill Says:

    No excuses…. I’m not a rapper and I’m sure rappin in studios, adding adlibs, and mixin help a lot… Everybody did they thang on the track[||]

    I digress, them niggas killed that shit… all I do is work as a lead graphic designer doing graphics for a digital slot machine company in Gwinnette Co

    sorry if I didn’t wow u with my mic presence or punch-lines…

    honestly i fucking hate that beat. too damn repetitive. just my opinion

    ^^ honestly, I wasnt crazy about this beat either. I thought the song was tough, but beat-wise, I woulda preferred “I Wanna Rock” or “Say Something”… but I heard niggas say they was gonna do freestyles, so I tagged along on some peer pressure shit

    Yo, i was telling Gravity i think it was that i can’t remember the last time i was so excited to hear something (Ie Act II)…that if it drops on New Years and I’m out and about, I might just shoot home like a fiend….

    I was excited to hear MM3 just about the same way now that i think about it but still the point remains…

    Oh and like i told you before i didn’t expect much from Fashawn so what he brought sufficed in my book..

    ^On a few occasions I’ve told him he sounds like Sandman (former ReUp member). Voice isn’t as husky though.

  21. Boos Bigelow Says:

    I wanna hear el feces version, but judging by keystyling…shit gon be wack

  22. Smoke Greene Says:

    say something is a dope beat.
    ========================
    It’s too slinky for a serious verse. It almost begs for you to rap about some soft shit.

    Still an ill beat tho.

  23. Digital Scales Says:

    Joe88 sounds like he needs more practice

    I thought his flow and bars were the most potent.

    None of these niggas is ready for the pro’s yet, but Joe’s joint hit the hardest IMO. Dude lived up to what JE did with the OG. That’s hard to do.
