Matoma – Knives ft Frenship & ‘Hakuna Matoma’ album

If you witnessed Norwegian producer Matoma‘s set at Royal Oak Music Theatre last week, you likely had no trouble bouncing and swaying with the tropical house sounds circulating from the venue’s speakers. There is also a good chance you were in a flowered “Dad” shirt or basketball jersey because that seemed to be the crowd’s […]

MIXTAPE: The Narkmaster ft Drake, Atmosphere, Kyle Lucas, Action Bronson & more

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 […]

Mash-Up: A Hood Internet Catch-Up

Not exactly new, but over the past three months there has been one song I’ve consistently gone back to in the gym. The Hood Internet‘s expert pairing of Justice’s guitar and synth banger “Horsepower” and LL’s classic “Mama Said Knock You Out” will definitely make you hit the treadmill for an extra ten minutes. Aside […]

NEW MIXTAPE: LOTN: The Fellowship of the Nark

I debated back and forth on waiting for Watch the Throne to drop to include some tracks, but I’m betting on that being a front to back classic. You’ll just have to pick that up on your own. Speaking of dream teams, hip-hop has been all about collaboration so far this summer. Big Sean, Wiz […]

New Mixtape: The Narkover

These titles really haven’t made sense for awhile now, so why start now, right? New hip-hop for your dome. I’ve already been drooling about Bad Meets Evil’s Hell: The Sequel EP, so I don’t need to discuss much here but “Fast Lane” is exactly what I hoped for. 50 Cent gets a beat that sounds […]

Thursday Linkage: k-os, Wale, MoogFest, Freddie Gibbs, and more

Lots of rap/hip-hop news this week. Makes sense. I was a little underwhelmed with Nark & Loathing in Las Vegas. A) Its been a big week for hip-hop mixtapes this week. Long awaited efforts from k-os and Wale dropped for free and are well worth multiple listens. k-os – The Anchorman Mixtape Wale – More […]

New Mixtape: Nark and Loathing in Las Vegas

This seems like a bad idea to put this about just before k-os’ The Anchorman Mixtape drops, but this hip-hop/rap collection is overdue already. The old guys like Snoop (“Laid Back”), newly reunited Dipset (“Salute”) and Bun B (“Let’em Know” and “Right Now”) are still kickin’ it. Cam’Ron even got 3 unlikely, but strong features […]
