MIXTAPE: A Nark Is Born feat. Big K.R.I.T., 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, Wiz Khalifa & Curren$y, and more

It has been a very, very long time since a new “Nark” hip-hop mixtape has been released. 2015 as a matter of fact. Let’s face it, hip-hop hasn’t been spectacular for purists in recent years. However, I always tell people there are bright spots in the rap game if you look in the right places. […]

REMIX: Miike Snow – Heart Is Full Remix ft Run The Jewels

Though it was a late edition to my JayeL Audio 11-12-15 mixtape, Miike Snow‘s bombastic single “Heart Is Full” has quickly become one of my favorite cuts from both mixtapes.

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.

Mixtapes: Narkhat & The Nark Runner

For all of the complaining I did about the lack of quality hip-hop last year, 4th quarter 2014 had a plethora of new gems to blast on repeat. The albums were especially great with the likes of Big KRIT, Run The Jewels, Ghostface Killah, J Cole and PRhyme all dropping new full length features. DJ […]
