old young stalin
how could you not love this guy?
the cure to keak's slump: dj fresh.
I can’t say this video is worth watching unless you’re as big a DJ Fresh stan as I am. I can say that I think the track that’s playing in the background at 4:40 is gonna be quite the banger.
“You Neva Know,” by Husalah. Off of Messy Marv Presents: The Shooting Range. Decent.
props to the drummer and the swingman jersey.
have a really pleasant weekend
“Moon & Stars,” by Big K.R.I.T. featuring Devin the Dude.
didn’t expect this to be the next video of my favorite album of last year. i do like glasses malone though. ever listened to his mixtape, 2010? it’s just him rapping over chronic 2001, but i liked it. here’s a track off it:
my brother, gang starr's guru →
“Marcberg,” by Roc Marciano. This album’s crazy.
rip guru →
i just spent 10 bucks on the new andre nickatina album. i saw that there was a track produced by sean t and a track produced by zaytoven, so i got pretty excited. my bad. i’m gonna leave it at that for now since i don’t know how to post songs i downloaded via itunes. i guess just consider this a warning to spend your money on something else today, like a bag of jolly ranchers or...
the collateral consequences of incarceration
waka flocka has developed quite a following. and perhaps for good reason. i mean, even if not for a good reason, it’s been highlighted that he does wear an amazing fozzie bear chain, so who are we to judge? my initial thoughts upon listening to this mixtape were, “okay, this is fine. i can listen to what waka has to say for a little bit,” as exemplified by the below track: ...
“Blap,” by Sleepy D featuring D-Lo (produced by Young L). Sleepy is D-Lo’s younger brother. I posted about him a while back. His album, Sleepy Deprivation, drops this Tuesday. Looking forward to it. 4/20 features a lot of bay releases. Not a surprise, I suppose.
sorry to binge on the philthy rich videos, but i’d never seen this until recently and i love this track (i posted it a while back). dj fresh rarely does wrong. also, it’s kinda funny seeing philthy without a hat on.
nothing groundbreaking, but props to tss for giving davinci and the “new fillmore” some coverage.
the art of quality control or the quality of art...
a lot of recognition (and it seems, appreciation) has gone into husalah’s unwillingness to saturate the airwaves or internets post-incarceration. i was listening to this track last week and it made me think something kinda different: husalah sounds sick over almost everything, which is obviously a huge talent (i’m planning on writing something soon about how keak suffers from...
from the o to the o
>smiley’s last video.
critics can take a breath—lil b can still stunt with lines like “glock leave your head stuck to walls like a poster” over beats that feature gun-cocking samples. personally, i’ve been content with the more experimental/experiential direction he’s been taking his music, but hopefully this will hush haters (not that i think lil b gives a fuck what you think) and...
i'm from the 80s era when we didn't wear no...
one of the many nice tracks off the separately bar-coded discs.
