6 Classic American Songs That Would Sound 100x Better If Quavo Redid Them

posted by Alejandro Hernandez August 14, 2017

A few days ago, a petition to give the National Anthem a much needed facelift by getting Migos’ very own Quavo to redo it went viral, and garnered the attention from music blogs everywhere. What’s more (and is proof that God works in powerful, mysterious ways) is that the hook god himself cosigned this petition on twitter:

SO THEY WANT HUNCHO TO BE FEATURED ON THE NATIONAL ANTHEM LETS ROLL

What are some other traditionally American songs that could desperately use a trap remix featuring Quavo though? Inspired by this new (and truly revolutionary) petition, here is the list comprised of songs considered patriotic, classic, and/or culturally significant to the U.S. that would sound 100x better if Quavo redid them:

Sweet Caroline- Neil Diamond

Before I start with this one, I want to make one thing clear: Neil Diamond is a music legend, and I am very grateful for his contributions. That being said, what could possibly be his most famous contribution, is easily his most overrated. “Sweet Caroline” is the Seinfield or Friends of music (depending on which show you think is more overhyped). “Sweet Caroline” is the white frat boy version of “Knuck If You Buck,” which means that, for one reason or another, it’s the one song that gets played at every Yakubian function , except it’s way less amazing than the Crime Mob classic in every sense. This track can definitely use a Quavo redo with Metro Boomin’ on the production side, and then maybe it can legitimately rival Crime Mob’s “Knuck If You Buck” as the top turn-up song of our lifetime.

Take Me Out To The Ball Game

Any fan of baseball knows just how important this song is to our country’s history. It serves as the theme song of America’s pastime, with ballparks across the nation having their drunken audiences sing along to it as part of the 7th Inning Stretch. I don’t want to front though, “Take Me Out To The Ball Game,” depending on who the celebrity singer is, it’s pretty hit or miss (Will Ferrell’s is easily the best though), but imagine how fire the remix would be if he did it. The idea of him dropping “yeah, dat way” ad-libs in between lines is already giving me goosebumps. Plus, people will get a healthy double dose of Quavo with him doing the National Anthem as well as the 7th Inning Stretch, and honestly, I think we sholud double our daily intake of Quavo if we truly want to lead a happy and healthy life.

Sweet Home Alabama

Even though this song is about Lynyrd Skynyrd’s love for their home state of Alabama, it’s been adopted as an anthem for overall Southern pride (Confederate flag waving pride and all), and is considered a staple in the American music canon (it was even featured in Forrest Gump, which is like one of the 5 greatest and most American films ever), but that still doesn’t mean it’s need of an upgrade. I could see it now. Led by the omnipresent Quavo Stuntin’, the song will be rebranded as “Sweet Home Atlanta,” and it will be the ultimate trap anthem that South or any other region has yet to see. It can even feature fellow Migos members Offset and Takeoff, and other Atlanta rap legends like Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, Jeezy, while production can be handled by the likes of Southside, Mike WiLL– oh my God why are we not funding this to happen this could be the only thing that could bring back OutKast on wax, this will be hip-hop’s version of “We Are The World.”  We as a society need to make this happen if it’s the last thing we do.

Born In The USA

Bruce Springsteen’s classic song about a war vet coming back to his hometown only to grow disgruntled and disillusioned by the U.S. government is easily the best song on this list that can stand on it’s own. It’s also the only song I think doesn’t even need to be completely redone. By that, I mean Springsteen will stay on it, while Quavo would serve as the feature, which we all know is where he tends to excel best. It may sound crazy, but I think we all secretly would like to hear The Boss and The Huncho on the same track. After Springsteen is done talking about how fufu the U.S. government is, Quavo comes on rapping about about how due to the circumstances (created by said government) that he grew up in, he had to come up by trappin’, but it doesn’t mater now because he’s rich as hell and can stunt on everyone with his icy chains and designer clothes and it would instantly become the perfect song for the times we live in as a society

America, The Beautiful

I dare you to try and think of something more beautiful in this country than Quavo’s auto-tuned hooks. Exactly, you can’t. That’s why he needs to redo this song.

The Star-Spangled Banner

This is the song that inspired this whole post, so it obviously had to be on here. Quavo covering the national anthem isn’t what this country deserves, but it’s what the country needs right now. Let’s be real, the “Star-Spangled Banner” is like 200 hundred years old, and it’s pretty played out, mostly bland and outdated af. That’s why Quavo needs to be on it. If Quavo covered the Anthem at every major event I attended, I would proudly stand every time with the patriotic pride knowing that people like Quavious Keyate Marshall are what makes this country tolerable.

POD Photos: JMBLYA 2017

posted by Ruben May 8, 2017

JMBLYA 2017 in Austin, TX took place over the weekend and we were part of the lucky crowd that witnessed a great collection of talent from throughout the Hip Hop world hit the stage to do what they do best.

Pursuit Of Dopeness was present to capture some of the highlights, encapsulating moments from the performances of the likes of Chance The Rapper, Lil Uzi Vert, Steve Aoki, Migos, and Pell. You can see those pictures in the gallery below.

Some of the best things that went down at JMBLYA included Lil Uzi showing off his showmanship once more by climbing the stage and performing from there, Steve Aoki (obviously) throwing cake into the crowd [still cool every time] and debuting a new single with Migos called “Night Call,” Gucci (sorry, was too lit so I couldn’t take any good pics) inviting Bun B and Migos to perform with him, and Chano performing his own version of “Waves” along with doing his part from the no. 1 hit “I’m The One.” It was also dope having Chance The Rapper invite the crowd to join him in celebrating what he was dubbing “National Acid Rap Week.”

Check out the pictures I took below. Continue Reading

Video: Migos Perform “Bad and Boujee” with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots with Office Supplies

posted by Oscar March 24, 2017

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon has outdone itself with their latest performance of a hit song, using unusual objects/instruments. While previously employing classroom instruments as they played along with the likes of Adele, Metallica, and The Lonely Island, this time they made use of office supplies to play none other than the world-turning hit song by Migos, “Bad and Boujee.”

The Migos were joined by host Jimmy Fallon and house band The Roots, as they all donned their best Dwight Schrute-inspired fits consisting of short-sleeved button-ups and crappy ties. Scissors, tape, water bottles, coffee decanters, and even a guitar made out of a ruler, rubber bands, and an empty hand tissue box. Ain’t nothing boujee about this setup! See that performance above.

Migos were also the musical guests last night on the show, where they performed new single “T-Shirt” in fur coats. See that below. Continue Reading

Kap G has been making hits for a minute now and for this one he gets none other than Quavo himself.
