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: 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: Scott Melker-GOOD House Party (Meek Mill vs. Carly Rae & Owl City)

This is normally where I would promise that I’d never post a track featuring Owl City, then Scott Melker threw some drum, viola and Meek Millie on it. Take a listen to the latest release off Melker’s album Popped and Screwed. Be sure to Scott’s spot for free music every Thursday.

New Mixtape: Nark Lights

You could say I’m foolish for putting this hip-hop/rap mixtape out before Labor Day weekend. Considering Missy Elliot is dropping two new songs this weekend and there are certain to be a few other surprises, I’m probably going to wish those tracks were on this mix. Oh well, I had a hard enough time narrowing […]

New Mixtape: The Nark Knight Rises

I love when mixtape titles are this easy. “The Dark Knight Rises” is expected to have a running time of 2 hrs and 45 minutes. While this mixtape doesn’t have that many songs, it is a super-sized edition. I was all ready to send this on Tuesday and then Brother Ali, Kanye, Big Boi and […]

STREAM: Asher Roth ft Meek Mill – Party Girl

Not gonna lie, Eddie Murphy’s “Party All The Time” is a definite ’80s guilty pleasure of mine. I’ve been waiting to hear it sampled in hip-hop ever since there were rumors Fat Joe was using it as a single (no surprise, it was terrible). Asher Roth is probably the last person I would picture utilizing […]

NEW MIXTAPE: Narkanomics

You know it must be 4th Quarter when all the big guns of hip-hop are offering up new material. Drake snapped up Ricky Ross over an eloquent Just Blaze production on “Lord Knows”. Ludacris and B.o.B. let loose a free mixtapes with Luda referencing my favorite movie of 1985, Back To The Future and Meek […]
