Farewell @FREDOSANTANA300 👼🏽

This morning Savage Squad Records CEO and former GBE affiliate, Fredo Santana died at the tender age of 27 years old. Reports state the cause of death was due to kidney failure. Today the city of Chicago and those abroad mourn the loss of a staple to the drill music scene.

Current events show how detrimental drug use has been to some of Hip-Hop’s younger stars. Back in 2015, the culture took a major lost when ASAP Yams at the age of 26 was reported dead due to a drug overdose. It was said that he possibly died due to a mixture of codeine and Xanax. As time fast forwards, rapper Lil Peep at age 21 was reported dead in November 2017, due to a Xanax overdose.

Addiction to prescription drugs are at an all time high. The addiction comes with a heavy price… your life. It’s truly upsetting to witness as it’s taking the young away before they truly are able to make their mark.

Luckily, the addiction crisis isn’t going unnoticed. Some rappers have vowed to quit cold turkey to ensure their survival. California rapper Hell Gang Mozzy has decided to kick the cup and bring awareness to the epidemic.

The greatest hope is that more artist will follow the way of those like Mozzy. It’s understood that this isn’t a easy battle. But, health is wealth and you have to be here in order to count it!

With great sorrow and a sadden heart we here at KMThinks.com sends prayers and condolences to the family and friends of Fredo Santana. The city cries for you today.

What We’ve All Been Waiting For: Chief Keef x Kanye West “Nobody”

IMG_9470.JPG

The awaited record from Chief Keef and Kanye West just dropped this morning entitled “Nobody”. I personally was excited to see a link finally posted; it’s been a couple of months since the anticipation started to brew. The song kicks off with a sample from Willie Hutch’s “Brothers Gonna Work It Out” which is awesome. I actually feel the beat is what holds “Nobody” along with Kanye’s melodic background singing. Other than that the song falls a little bit short. I was expecting something really phenomenal out of this record. I loved Keef and Kanye’s last collab on “Yezzus” with “I Can’t Hold My Liquor” but this “Nobody” track not so much. Keef decided to wing the whole record himself no verse from Kanye what so ever. The verses we get from Keef aren’t all that strong and the record doesn’t have any tweet worthy lyrics either. That’s rare from Keef he always gives you something to tweet with. Maybe I was expecting something more real. Nothing too deep but something with a little more substance since the beat was so heavy. One thing I know for sure was that I was expecting a verse from Kanye. But, sometime we don’t get what we want we instead get what the artist wants to give us and that’s exactly what “Nobody” is. Nevertheless I can still find appreciation for the song from the history of the beat to the semi feature from Kanye but that’s about it. I want your opinion though. Click play below. Let me know what you think of it… Comment or tweet me @KMThinks_ on Twitter. I’m waiting for your reply.
