New Mixtape: Nark Got A Room

There was a slight drought in rap/hip-hop from Feb. to early March, but I finally gathered enough material for a decent mixtape.  More acts from the past seem to be trying to reclaim glory from yesteryear (or they need some more pay checks).  Bone Thugs ‘n Harmony somehow got all the members in the same […]

Kyle Lucas: Hell On Earth

I was just telling someone how 1994-1996 were the heyday of rap/hip-hop (for me anyways).  Here Kyle Lucas rips one of Mobb Deep’s classics, “Hell On Earth”.  I love Vonnegutt, but when Kyle wants to, he can certainly tear up traditional hip-hop fare as well.  I’m pretty much convinced he can flow on anything he […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 3-3-09

This round is a little less “melon collie” (as Logan put it) and a little more diverse. Alice Russell joins the growing list of British soul singers I’m starting to confuse with one another. The welcome return of Phoenix (“1901”), Razorlight (“North London Trash”) and Jack Penate (“Tonight’s Today”). A couple of “growers” are the […]

New Mixtape: Mashed Up Volume 3

Here we go again.  I’ve posted many of these mash-ups over the past few months, but who doesn’t like an organized music library?  The Hood Internet continues their domination of the Mash-Up world.  I’m always amazed by their ability to make me like songs by artists I don’t normally give a second thought.  Prime example, […]

Drake: "So Far", So Good

I’ve been keeping tabs on rapper/singer Drake since adding “I’m Still Fly” to Nark-N-Rolla.  His sing-song flow is reminiscent of Kanye/KiD CuDi and his eclectic taste in beats has gained buzz with the mainstream set and indie music fans alike. Drake recently signed to Lil’ Wayne‘s Young Money Records, which is great or terrible depending […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 2-2-09

Depending on the caliber of music released daily, I’m hoping to get these out more often, but 2 in less than 1 month (not counting Narks and Mashed Up 3 soon) will have to do for now.  This edition showcases a couple of D-I-Y artists (Marc with a C, Kyle Andrews), a rising Detroit electro […]

New Mixtape: Nark City

Winter is usually pretty slow when it comes to quality rap/hip-hop, but 2009 has been proving me wrong as of late.  Nark City features appearances by Shady/Aftermath employees, current (Eminem, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Focus) and past (Stat Quo, Obie Trice, Royce Da 5’9″).  Also included is an A-List ATL connection (T.I. & Usher), the […]
