After an extended hiatus, Marc Goone has returned with bigger and badder plans for his take over. First single, “Mike Matheny”, is a song about bad decisions. Marc’s tongue-in-cheek type of writing style makes for a hilarious, weird, and unique song.

It’s been nearly a year since Marc has released any music, but it’s clear that he’s spent the time off honing his voice and prepping for this forthcoming album.

Enjoy, “Mike Matheny”, and check back in soon for more from Marc Goone.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Chill, Electro, Videos | Hozyboy – Woods

Posted by on October 20, 2014

Too be honest, this dude came out of nowhere. One minute I was aimlessly looking at nothing on the internet and the next I was the most stoked I’ve been in a while to say the least. At first it was just the music video, displayed above, that turnt me up. On my Reddit feed it read “VISUAL MINDBLOWING VIDEO & MUSIC”, “Wait for the watermelon to explode after the asian man plays the flute”, and “Cartoons, nature, and asian man, and a watermelon. Honey for your eyes” so I was intrigued – which he definitely wasn’t lying once I got to actually watching the music video. F****** brilliant. I was then so stoked off the music video that I found a SoundCloud link and clicked it instantly. Not only is “Woods” a vibing, feel good beat, his other compositions are crazy impressive as well. Hozy is 100% worth the look with other dope songs like “You Just Got Abducted by Some Turnt Up Aliens” and “Retro Heartbreak“; It’ll be exciting to see what this aspiring artist will come up with next.

Hip-Hop, Rap | Pell – Wait On Me (ft. Dent May)

Posted by on October 10, 2014

The New Orleans emcee, Pell, has returned with his newest visual for “Wait On Me”. The video is put together well and Dent May compliments the chorus perfectly. The vibey sound makes it perfect to rock out alone to, or cruise around playing in the car.

Future projects are still undisclosed, but things appear to be heating up for Pell. With his melodic and soothing voice, it’s hard to imagine a world without his music infiltrating the airwaves.

Also, if you missed it, be sure to check out Pell’s live rendition of “Fresh Produce” here, and see his voice in action.


Hip-Hop, Mixtapes, Rap | Jon Waltz – Alyss (EP)

After numerous praise-worthy singles, the time has finally come for Jon Waltz’s full project. Accompanied by a unique story and visual representation, “Alyss”, proves to be an incredibly cohesive and well thought-out body of work.

In my mind, Waltz is still actively searching to find his voice, as well as his core audience. There are moments on the EP where one can hear obvious Drake influences, or perhaps the out layer of a Skizzy Mars shell that is shedding. That being said, Jon Waltz and “Alyss” speak to a very different group of people than both of the aforementioned artists.

For kids trying to find their place in the world, or young adults that simply like to question why things happen the way they do, “Alyss” is a must listen.

Feel-good rap is too hard to come by nowadays. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not mad at any stripclub anthems that have been put out in 2014, however, with the recent release of Kendrick Lamar’s “i”, it seems as if positive vibes and less-booty shaking might be returning to hip-hop.

Here to add to that movement is Scolla with his new Skewby assisted track, “Play It Cool”. The song displays Scolla’s infectious melodies as well as the raw rapping ability of both him and Memphis native, Skewby.

Follow Scolla on SoundCloud and dig a little deeper in to the music!

Hip-Hop | Adam Tensta – World On Fire (produced By Mr.Carmack)

That’s my cool when I can’t take it off, the Swedish rapper Adam Tensta popped up on my Twitter newsfeed pushing his latest release “World On Fire” produced by Mr Carmack, and on some rude boy ish, this track is fire. Different from the Tensta sound I’ve grown to love, “80’s Baby” being my favorite, for a second I felt like he could’ve been the next Kanye, his sample game was on point, and his flow and delivery was mad refreshing, but I’m not mad at him for a darker record, it fits with the times, and it’s not lie, the world is on fire. This is a must listen and a must download!
