What’s in Dshaq’s Tape Deck Vol.2

Posted by on May 14, 2012

For all you Hip-Hop people, I’m back with a brand new edition. This is to give you the latest up and comers who have got me playing their stuff 24/7, or something like that. Last time involved some A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, Phony Ppl, Logic, G-Eazy, Danny Brown, and Skizzy Mars, but I’m back with 5 different artists for your listening pleasure. Without further ado, let’s begin.

1) Chance The Rapper

Chance The Rapper has been on repeat since hearing his 10Day mixtape. Going in on various types of beats, Chance shows his versatility throughout the whole tape and combined together, it makes for one of the best mixtapes of 2012. With a unique voice and a sharp wit, Chance has a style so incomparable to anyone today, which is part of the appeal. Don’t sleep on Chance, he’s gonna be big!

2) Chief Keef

Chief Keef is a touchy subject for most people. A love-hate relationship is a great way to describe him with people. To me, Keef makes some good stuff. Now I know what you’re thinking, “A white kid loves wildin’ out to Chief Keef and his trap musik?”. The answer to that question is, YES, HELL YES I DO. He may not be the best technical rapper, but god does he know how to make some jams, which I guess could be attributed to Young Chop’s success, but nonetheless its awesome. Grab his latest mixtape, and make sure to download 3HUNNA. Next time you’re at a party, throw on some Chief Keef and get crazy.

3) Meek Mill

Okay, so Meek Mill may not be an up and comer, but wow did that Dreamchasers 2 mixtape totally blow my mind. The beats on that thing, in particular the “Amen” one, only made him sound that much better on it. I’m just a fan of everything he does, especially choosing to sign with Rick Ross. After a mixtape like this and an album due out in the Summer, this MMG product is on his way to making an even big name for himself.

4) OnCue

2011 was a great year for OnCue, and he has continued to follow it up with an impressive 2012. Getting help on songs from the likes of Just Blaze, Party Supplies, and even Brenton Duvall, OnCue has put out songs that have solidified himself as one of the top up and comers. His sound is so unique and his flow is one of my personal favorites. This Brooklyn boy is definitely on the come up so make sure to get yourself acquainted with OnCue.

5) Dylan Owen

Dylan Owen has been blowing up on the blogosphere as of late. He seems to have a knack for dazzling listeners with his storytelling ability and perfect enunciation. I swear, no matter how fast this kid is rapping, you can always make out every word he is saying. His lyrics are filled with passion and experience, always illustrating a vivid picture in his listeners minds. If you have yet to grab Dylan’s latest EP, Keep Your Friends Close, do so now!
