Nark of Wall Street from jayelaudio on 8tracks Radio.

I’m not sure what the percentage is of readers that still check for new hip-hop/rap, but there has to be at least 8 of you. When people ask me if I still listen to hip-hop, I say yes, but there is a lot of garbage I wade through to find quality music. Hence the seven months in between these Nark mixtapes. Luckily, there are some new acts in the genre like Remi, Kid Ink and Joey Bada$$, that to continue make it worth wading through hundreds of NahRight, 2dopeboyz and Fader posts. TDE already had a huge 2012/2013 with the greatest hope in hip-hop, Kendrick Lamar, and the rising enigma that is Schoolboy Q. 2014 might be just as big for the label with the arrival of Isaiah Rashad. Like Kendrick, Rashad has a penchant for story-telling that mixes nostalgic love for ’90’s hip-hop (see Master P’s “Weed & Money) that is undeniable. Aside from the newcomers, Drake released a helluva album left over in “Trophies”, the underrated AZ returns with the help of Statik Selektah, and Lil Wayne somehow lets Chance The Rapper steal the show on “You Song”. Also, can someone please tell Eminem to make an entire album of boom-bap era rap like the Buckshot-produced “Don’t Front”? That track is filled with line after line of clever wordplay and better than anything he put on the massively disappointing The Marshall Mathers LP 2.

Let me know your favorites in the comments.

    Still listening. I also love reading your summaries of the Nark tapes, mixing very literate and musically knowledgeable prose with names like Selektah, Schoolboy Q, Joey Bada$$. Without these Narks, I am pretty illiterate in the modern era rap zeitgeist.

    I also feel compelled to mention that 8tracks has been holding up a little better for me in recent times.

  • jayelaudio

    That is essentially the best compliment I could ask for. Maybe I should write a 10 page essay on the merits of artists like ScHoolboy Q and KiD CuDi who capitalize letters of their names at odd times.

    Glad to hear 8tracks is holding up. I’m currently testing Minilogs to see if their playlists are any better.
