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 […]

New Mixtape: A Nark’s Life

I’ve had more questions on when the next Nark is coming than any over the last month….so here it is. It sounds like Game finally got his single in “Red Nation” (after the 15th try), while The Cool Kids return with that 90’s boom bap that they are so good at. Elsewhere, Big K.R.I.T. and […]

New Mixtape: The Nark Before Christmas

Back by popular demand, a new hip-hop/rap mixtape just in time for the Holidays. This is probably the most geographically diverse Nark I’ve made to date. The South offers up some street-drama and posse cuts via Bobby Ray aka B.o.B. (“I Feed These Streets”), Spree Wilson (“WORD”), The Clipse (“Popular Demand”) and DJ Khaled w/Usher, […]

New Mixtape: Nark Trek

Well, if you haven’t downloaded these rap/hip-hop mixtapes because they were too hip-hop or ghetto, Nark Trek might be your thing.  This is probably the pop-iest (not a real word, I know) Nark, I’ve made in years.  Thats alright though, as long as summer-time music has good beats, I’ll sacrifice lyrical quality.  For better or […]

New Mixtape: Nark Streets

A little something for the Holiday break.  I’ll have actual 2008 best of lists when its most appropriate, in 2009. Mixtape Observations: A. Common + Kanye > Common + Pharrell B. The only artists who should use Auto-Tune – T-Pain, Lil’ Wayne, Kanye C. Lupe Fiasco has more unreleased gems than most rappers have hits […]

Narkworthy 8/21: Nark-N-Rolla

The name certainly doesn’t work as well as the last one, but it will do. Plenty of heavy hitters made the cut (Nas, Kanye, The Game, T-Pain) this go round, but look out for the newcomers (especially LMFAO) and legends (Large Professor). Of course, “Jockin’ Jay-Z” had to be included. Kid Cudi continues his run […]

Narkworthy 4/22: Paranoid Nark

Well it took me 2 months to compile a worthwhile mixtape, but here it is. There are some club/radio tracks (Stat Quo, Ying Yang Twins), storytelling (Atmosphere, Wale), throwbacks (The Cool Kids, Pacific Division) and comebacks (AZ, The Game). Hopefully, there is something for everyone. Comments and criticism are greatly appreciated. Paranoid Nark1. Jay-Z – […]
