Fab and French teamed up for “Ball Drop” featuring a familiar horn sampling. Fab has been in the game for the longest but he looks exactly the same since the first time he came to the scene. According to his bio he is 38, really? Maybe he’s lying his age, I don’t know but he definitely belongs to Pharrell’s never-age-club. Same thing with Jay-Z, he’s forever young. If you look too old you better not expect any offers to collaborate with young rappers. “Ball Drop” is the party anthem at clubs exclusively playing Hip-Hop.
A trap song with a hip hop beat and a reggae flavor from Rihanna’s new album will surely be embraced by black girls. The best way to make a group of bored ladies on the floor is to play songs by Rihanna, Beyonce and Ciara back to back. You can make them smile.
Trey Songz’ classic slow jam reminisces smooth ballads of 90’s R&B singer Genuwine. Nice and sexy. It’s like the situation is reversed mostly guys who request for this song, not ladies…….why? Because he is Trey Songz!

Drake dropped an unexpected mixtape, If Youre Reading This It’s Too Late with no promotion and it became no. 1 on iTunes chart. It is pretty awesome! People love Drake! “6 Man” is perfect for the club and the beat is nice. Especially girls love this song they can dance to.
The song by up and coming Tinashe featuring Iggy is definitely the winner. No one can resist the music video of the collaboration of these 2 pretty girls.
3- Lituation – Fabolous
イントロに Lauryn Hill の名曲 Lost One からの Money change the situation って声がサンプルされてて 懐かしい感と渋い感が組み合わさってます。これ、Hip Hop好きのお兄さん達から凄い人気です。この間 お兄さんにこの曲をかけてくれって かなりねだられました。渋っていたら 50ドルくれたのでばっちりかけました!!めったにないですが、とってもラッキーでした！
It samples the phrase “it’s funny how money change a situation……” from Lauryn Hill’s classic hit “Lost One”, Fabolous describes the song as “something for the streets” and it quickly became a Hip Hop anthem among brothers in the ‘hoods. Some guy asked me to play this song and when I was hesitated he gave me $50! It’s funny how money changed a situation…..

最近 QB Finestの Oochie Wallyネタの曲が多いなぁって感じですが、今もう古株となったFabolousが Chris Brownと一緒にやってるなんて、文句無しで絶対良い感じで注目したくなります。ちょっぴりスローですが、Loyalあたりの曲につなげてかけれそうです。Fabolousって良くクラブでも顔を出してますが、全然変わってないです。やっぱり細めの人は 老けにくいのかな(笑)
Although many people sample “Oochie Wally” by QB Finest, Nas and Bravehearts, this rendition by now veteran mc Fabolous and Chris Brown is absolutely great! A bit slow but probably it flows nicely if I play it right after “Loyal”. I sometime see Fabolous at clubs and amazingly he hasn’t changed at all. Thin people stay young, I guess.
Originally from Paterson, NJ Ferry Wap is a type of artist who raps and sings. To my surprise this song doesn’t sound so much East Coast. As a new comer from NJ, Wap has been making noise in Atlantic City area. His video being shot just before he took off is obviously low budget but shows real ‘Hood’. Some neighborhood in NJ, for example just a few blocks away from AC is very dangerous. Fetty Wap was invited to make a guest appearance to my friend’s party but he looks too grimy that they refused to print his picture on the flyer (lol).
It is almost mandatory to play Philly rapper Meek Mill’s songs in the club in AC as 1/3 of the customers are from Philly and Freeway for more mature crowd. “Monster” is perfect tempo for the dance floor.

Opening up with Israeli musician Ofra Haza’s powerful “Im Nin Alu,”(also sampled by Eric B & Rakim’s “Paid In Full” and Public Enemy’s Can’t Truss It”) “Foreigners” sifts into the samples of Fat Joe’s “My Lifestyle” (the original was called “Static Time.”) It has a strong impact at the beginning but I don’t think this flows. Using Auto-tune for the entire track seems to have ruined the effect as well
People request a lot of Meek Mills songs at Province Club in Atlantic City where I dj every weekend as he is from Philadelphia and AC is not far from his hometown.
PTAF (Pretty Taking All Fades) is a low key black female rap trio until featuring Nicki Minaj for their remix version. Now they are famous! Thanks to Barbz. I play only Nicki’s hooks at the club. She repeats ‘I’m a boss ass bitch,bitch……….’ Now it’s ringing in my ear.
