Big Sean – Blessed ft Drake & Kanye West

The fact that Big Sean announced a new 2015 album, Dark Sky Paradise, wasn’t a surprise because he was due. However, the release date of Feb. 24th raised a few eyebrows considering that was less than a month away.

Drake – All Me ft 2 Chainz and Big Sean

New Drizzy with the artist formerly known as Tity Boi and Big Sean on a boastful joint. 2 Chainz just seems to be tailor made for this type of beat. I love the RANDY feature at the beginning as well. via P4k BONUS: Drake – The Motion ft Sampha

MIXTAPE: The Narkmaster ft Drake, Atmosphere, Kyle Lucas, Action Bronson & more

The Narkmaster from jayelaudio on 8tracks Radio. Get ready for an oversized mixtape of my favorite hip-hop of the past few months. The heavyweights (Jay-Z, Kanye West, J. Cole) mostly delivered on the hype surrounding their recent releases, but I’m primarily ready to laud the rest of the talent on this edition. Seattle spitter Sol […]

MIXTAPE: Narkfall

Back again with an over-sized collection of all that I’ve been enjoying in hip-hop this Fall. Big Sean seems to be on everyone’s tracks these days, but “Guap” serves as a catchy start to his sophomore album. Earl Sweatshirt shows why he is the most interesting emcee on Odd Future’s roster with “Chum”, while Fablolous […]
