2011 Wrap-up: Top Tracks of the Year #40-#31

Whittling down the best songs of the year is much tougher than the albums list. Anyone can release a great song, but a fluid, cohesive album is much harder to find. Over the next few posts, I’ll breakdown my top tracks of the year (followed by a two disc mixtape). As Laura correctly informed me, […]

The Hood Internet: Can't Stop Mash-Ups

This car accident ordeal has pretty much been a royal pain in the ass for all aspects of life. Since I do most of my listening on the road, one of those areas has been catching up on new music.  However, I have managed to keep track of what the Hood Internet has been up […]
