UTG LIST: Five Essential “Trap Back” Tracks (W/Downloads)

I have longstanding love/hate relationship with Gucci Mane and pretty much any rapper that fulls into his gutter subgenre of hip hop. It is not the bass-heavy tendencies, nor the overwhelming abundance of simple metaphors and ideas, no, what frustrates me is that their fame becomes more about the headlines than the music, which in turn usually makes the music about the headlines, and nine times out of ten that spells downfall for typically anyone.

STREAM/DOWNLOAD: Ludacris – Can You Buy That?

Ludacris is currently promoting the forthcoming release of his new mixtape and earlier today unleashed a brand new cut for fans to enjoy.

“Can You Buy That?” finds Luda going harder than he has in recent memory. In typical “promotional Ludacris” style, the song offers almost zero depth, but comes chock full of ego-boasting lines and talk of money. If that interests you, click through to stream, download, and enjoy.

Luda’s 1.21 Gigawatts: Back To The First Time mixtape arrives online November 15. As soon as we have it, we promise a link will appear on UTG. Stay tuned!

MOD SUN announces “Blazed By The Bell” mixtape

Earlier tonight, MOD SUN announced via Twitter he will be releasing a new mixtape in June entitled Blazed By The Bell. No word yet on the official release date, but we promise to give you all the details as soon as we receive them.

James Shotwell is the founder of Under The Gun Review. He loves writing about music and movies almost as much as he loves his two fat cats. He’s also the co-founder of Antique Records and the Marketing Coordinator for Haulix. You should probably follow him on Twitter.
