2016 Wrap-Up: Top Tracks of 2016 Mixtape

The Hip-Hop Catch Up: Lil Wayne, Drake, Jay-Z, Big KRIT & more

If there is one section of music that suffered during my race to the end of the semester, it was hip-hop. As I lament with each new Nark mixtape, it has become harder and harder to regularly find new listenable hip-hop. However, there were some enjoyable jams released over the past month or so that […]

Mixtape: Nark Of Wall Street ft Isaiah Rashad, Cam’ron & A-Trak, Drake and more

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 […]

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 […]

Mash-Up: Ellie Goulding x Birdman & Lil’ Wayne (Scott Melker)

Well, it didn’t take long for Scott Melker to put his own spin on Ellie Goulding‘s stellar cover of The Weeknd’s “High For This”. Birdman & Lil’ Weezy’s “Pop Bottles” might have been overused awhile back, but it happens to meld perfectly as Goulding croons over the subdued synth. Find more from Scott Melker on […]
