[curating the culture] //. LONDON


one of our favourite uk rappers miss banks has dropped a new tune, and yes, it bangs ,,, <<sorry we couldn’t resist>>

the next question on everyones lips is whether banks will manage to get nicki minaj on a track…. it would be quite something if the two could record


[paigey cakey – special]

i’m going to be completely honest with you guys when i say that paigey cakey isn’t someone i necessarily listen to. for me, although her song’s are catchy, i just feel like her music sounds the same.

also, i would say that her current fanbase is of a younger demographic but i actually think that’s a good thing because as she grows as an artist, her audience will grow with her and she’ll attract more fans along the way especially as she grows as a woman and gains even more life experience.

however this new song ‘special’ i really like <💜💜💜>. its such a vibe. i think it sounds very grown for paigey {a direction she needs to continue in} and i think the autotune is perfect. it’s very subtle. i would love for her to make more music like this.

you know who this girl needs to collaborate with…,,, kirko bangz! yes, this girl needs to somehow, someway, get on a track with kirko bangz. it would sound too nice and elevate paigey to a level that i think she’s ready to be at now in terms of collaborating with different artists.

i think at this point paigey cakey just needs to drop track after track now, drop two more videos and then give us a mixtape for the new years. if tory lanez can do it {and yes i am comparing her to tory lanez because that’s who i think she is the female version of for the simple fact that she raps and sings and is real wavey} then i don’t see why she can’t <shrugs shoulders>.

you can find the song reposted on the CULTURECREEPR soundcloud page but checkout the video below.


CARDI B //. *red barz*

cardi needs to rap over more beats like this. the beat is cold. I think this might actually make it into my car [might!]

in terms of lyrics and flow everything sounds good for this track but I think cardi needs more time to establish her rap style and work on her delivery. I don’t think rapping is something that comes naturally to cardi but it’s obvious she has a passion for it and as a music consumer I can appreciate that

what I did like about the video is cardi’s choice of clothing. it’s nice to see a female rapper putting out music fully clothed and not half naked. i think this is definitely going to change some peoples perceptions of cardi  in terms of her being taken more serious as a credible artist. now I’m not saying she wasn’t credible before but in a world where sex sells, cardi clearly chose to opt for the covered up look and drop real bars

finally, very cheeky of me to say but i would like to know whether offset [migos] had a helping hand with this track.. no i’m not trying to discredit cardi’s lyrical talent [disclaimer; i did not mention ghost writing] but what i mean is, i’m wondering if offset is helping cardi in terms of maybe mentoring her, kinda like biggie did with lil kim and jay z did with foxy brown….just a thought

[to all my illuminati conspiracy theorists, yes i do believe they are getting cardi b ready to take over nicki minaj’s spot – lol]
