Welcome back to our Weekly Set series. SNL Digital Short trio The Lonely Island is receiving high honors as it resides on this week’s top spot. Their revamped collaboration with Justin Timberlake on “Motherlover” seems to have hit the nerves of our readers. Legendary rock outfit The National brought forth “Exile Vilify” – their excellent contribution for the soundtrack of the upcoming video game, Portal 2 – and scored high with it. Bruno Mars teamed up with party experts Far East Movement to recreate their 2010 tune “Rocketeer.” Last week also saw the emergence of some unreleased Taylor Gang music in the shape of “Cant’ F*ck With It.” Boasting rhymes from Wiz Khalifa and Chevy Woods, the track caused for some mixed reactions among our readership. Always consistent with his delivery of flow and selection of beats, Spitta released his excellent Covert Coup mixtape. “Scottie Pippen” was one adequate appetizer.
Further highlights include Uffie’s comeback tune “Wordy Rappinghood,” the audio version of U2 and Jay’s Auckland Newzealand performance of “Sunday, Bloody Sunday,” XV’s J. Cole-produced “Watch Me Go,” Domo Genesis’s 4/20 celebration “Cashmere,” and the energetic StrobeHypnoticz refix of Deadmau5’s “Community Nap.”
The past seven days also saw some royal visuals, for instance Beastie Boys’ “Make Some Noise” and their equally star-studded “Fight For Your Right Revisited,” up-and-coming Ughmerica’s “POS,” Snoop Dogg and Willy Nelson’s stoner “Superman,” the unofficial, but excellent visual to Frank Ocean’s “Song for Women,” Asher Roth and Nottz’s Training Day-influenced “Enforce the Law,” Nas and Damien Marley came correct with “Nah Mean,” and J*DaVeY’s “Raincheck.”
