Music Monday - C.A.T. ft Chii by Zig-Zag starring Onslaut

Here is something you call the ingredients for a classic. Who can deny the cover alone? I mean, you have Cory and Topanga. Anybody who grew up in the 90s (Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, Green, Red, Purple, Nurple) knows that this was the CLASSIC love story. Two people that started off as two weird opposites that eventually developed a great friendship and became great lovers. Not lovers in the sense of pure intimacy, but lovers in the sense of they really had this great endearing love for one another. The track is memorable with a beat laced that's not too complex, but just right so you can really focus on what the song is saying. The smooth ambiance and synths in the track definitely give you the vibe you need to just relax and mellow out. The hook is simple but really catchy playing off with a dab of autotune. It's a tasteful and not enough to bombard the track. Zig-Zag did a great job with the production and the hook/chorus. Onslaut was spot on with some smooth lyrics that really got to the point of kinda serenading a girl he might be talking to. With great images and references to past shows of that time period, you definitely can reminisce and relate to this track growing up in that era. Good stuff, overall. Check out the track below.

T.I. talks about Trouble Man album and parenting advice for Jay-Z

To be honest, I think a lot of people need to hear what T.I. has to say. It's true that's he been in and out of jail for quite sometime. However, I feel that he has really tried to put that dark side away for good. He's cultivated an album titled "Trouble Man". I think people are really ready to hear a more aggressive, spirited T.I. like back in the day. That's why I can appreciate a record like "Flexin" with Big K.R.I.T. because it reminds me of the old "Dope Boys" record. Also, I definitely love the fact that he gives fatherly advice to Jay. I mean, T.I. has 6 kids! He would have a lot of great answers and great advice to give Jay! This is some good stuff! Check it out:
