Odd Future Show Review
November 10
under: Reviews, Videos, mixtape
comments: 0

I was fortunate enough to score a late ticket to the hyped up and sold out Odd Future show on Monday night and it could’ve been the most fortunate circumstance of my concert going career. My buddies had hyped them up to me a little bit before the show and since I didn’t have a ticket at the time, there was no need to immediately check them out. After learning of my late score on the ticket (thanks Anthony), I watched a couple of the members’ videos and was instantly disturbed. Let’s just say seeing 16-18 year old kids with blood spilling, vomiting and seizures aren’t high on my list of what I need to see (and that may be why I’m not a huge Jackass fan) but I was also intrigued. After a few years of rap trending away from the hardcore aspects it was destined to swing back the hardcore way eventually and these guys are leading the charge. Read more about the concert and see more videos below the break.

Fashawn – “Bart Simpson” (Video) x Grizzly City 3 Mixtape (No DJ)
November 9
under: Videos, mixtape
comments: 0

Fash is one of my favorite new spitters I have discovered in the past year and this video will help explain my reasoning. The dude can simply spit, straight up! He is a true lyricist and can crush the flow when he wants to. For this video he takes us on a tour of his weed and skating filled life and it is cool to see an artist who talks about skating actually doing it for once (I’m looking at you Lupe haha). “Bart Simpson” is off of his latest tape called Grizzly City 3 and I will include the no dj, tagless version of the tape below the break.

CyHi Da Prynce – “Sidewayz” (Video) x Royal Flush Mixtape
October 21
under: Videos, mixtape
comments: 0

The GOOD Music Friday all-star and recent GOOD Music signee CyHi Da PRynce has been busy the past week. First he gave us his new mixtape, and probably the first one most of us have heard, called Royal Flush and then he drops this video on us. Although the concept of this video isn’t original the shots are clean and make it different than most you have seen, I guess that’s what happens when you get that Kanye money behind you. Anyways check it out and if you are picking up what he is putting down then grab his tape below the break.

Mayer Hawthorne – Firsts Mixtape
October 21
under: mixtape
comments: 0

Sorry for the long break yet again but we should be back up and running for a good while now. It is time to play some catch up and the first one is from damn near a week ago called Firsts by none other then the B&B favorite, Mayer Hawthorne. The concept is very original for this tape, Hearty Magazine asked Mayer to list songs that relate to several firsts in his life and then put it all together on a tape. If you’re not sure exactly what I mean click below the break to see the tracklist/concept for yourself and to grab the download link.

Mickey Factz – I’m Better Than You Mixtape
September 27
under: mixtape
comments: 0

I have been digging almost everything from this project except the title so here it is for the masses.

“I’m better than myself,” says the Bronx, NY MC when explaining the meaning behind the mixtape’s title. “The tape is geared toward me bettering myself on a consistent basis. I have to look at myself in the mirror every single day and say, ‘yesterday you did what you did, but today you have to be better than you were yesterday’.”

The sentiment and explanation he has is admirable but too bad the title conveys arrogance and not confidence in yourself. The tracklist and download link are below the break.

Nike Nando – The Carryout 2 Mixtape
September 13
under: mixtape

I apologize to Nando for not getting enough of this up on B&B but I will post the project to help try to make up for it.

On December 27, 2007, the DMV & the country were introduced to “Nike” Nando Garcia and his mixtape entitled “TheCarryOut”. Since then Nando has released numerous classic projects due to his consistancy and dedication. Nando has gotten to travel to places he never dreamed because of his talent and potential, and he plans on doing more and leaving a lasting impact and impression with the release of his 6th solo mixtape “TheCarryOut2″. Joining forces with TheHipHopUpdate.com & illvibes-dmv.com this mixtape will be nothing short of greatness showing the constant evolution of a person striving to be the best he can be in a cold and harsh business without losing they’re way. In due time you will know that Nando is not your fly by night rapper…He lives his music and in the proccess has poured his blood,sweat,and tears in wanting to become more than just a “local rapper”. His performances…amazing…if you have never been to a show you are missing out on some of the greatest emcee skills for a up-and-coming artist in his begining stages. With that being said, you should really take notice at what is about to take place because everyone wants to be apart of something before it becomes larger than life. So take a seat grab your popcorn and enjoy the movie!

You know the drill, get the tracklist and download link below the break.

P.SO x 8thW1 – Suicide By Jellyfish Mixtape
September 2
under: mixtape
comments: 0

Line this tape up next to the numerous projects I have to listen to after these last couple weeks but I know this one will be good so I might have to move it to the front of the list. Here is what the two AOK Collective members had to say about their collaborative mixtape.

Locking himself in the studio for months, and enlisting the emcee talents of fellow AOK Collective member 8thW1, the artist formerly known as P.Casso has quietly crafted a left-of-center, avant-garde audio trip. The project essentially is, at it’s core, hip-hop over indie rock, electro, remixes and mashups but where it differs is it’s introspective tone in regards to the matters of the heart and personal internal issues. The title is derived from the suicide method Will Smith employs in the film “Seven Pounds”. According to P.So, “Jellyfish is a metaphor for music, both beautiful and dangerous with a complex, changing form.”

The multiple posts I have done for the project have received a lot of love so this one should be a hit. The download and tracklist are below the break.
