Old Mixtape: The Nark Supremacy

With my recent car troubles, I’ve been relegated to compact discs.  Since most of my recent music purchases have been mp3’s, I’ve been digging in the crates with past mixtapes.  There have been some great mixtape names (Jurassic Nark, Narkman Prophecies), some good finds (DJ Green Lantern’s Ivasion series, Jay-Z Reasonable Doubt) and some bad […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 4-4-09

Wow.  I mean I’ve watched almost every game this season and I thought we were good, but damn.  Glad to see Raymar snap out of his slump. GO GREEN!!!!!!!!! Lets celebrate with a mixtape. As you can see, I’m trying to get a few things done before I head to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for […]

New Mixtape: Nark Got A Room

There was a slight drought in rap/hip-hop from Feb. to early March, but I finally gathered enough material for a decent mixtape.  More acts from the past seem to be trying to reclaim glory from yesteryear (or they need some more pay checks).  Bone Thugs ‘n Harmony somehow got all the members in the same […]

The welcome return of Phoenix (“1901”), Razorlight (“North London Trash”) and Jack Penate (“Tonight’s Today”). A couple of “growers” are the […]

New Mixtape: Mashed Up Volume 3

Here we go again.  I’ve posted many of these mash-ups over the past few months, but who doesn’t like an organized music library?  The Hood Internet continues their domination of the Mash-Up world.  I’m always amazed by their ability to make me like songs by artists I don’t normally give a second thought.  Prime example, […]

Drake: "So Far", So Good

I’ve been keeping tabs on rapper/singer Drake since adding “I’m Still Fly” to Nark-N-Rolla.  His sing-song flow is reminiscent of Kanye/KiD CuDi and his eclectic taste in beats has gained buzz with the mainstream set and indie music fans alike. Drake recently signed to Lil’ Wayne‘s Young Money Records, which is great or terrible depending […]
