I don’t listen to hip-hop. This is why you should listen to Dylan Owen’s new offering int the form of his new “Everything Gets Old” single. It’s deeply introspective and brooding, which I like. Dylan explains, “The single is about a long and lonely overnight drive during which Dylan recalls memories of wanderlust and adventure from my teenage years.” While there’s no question Dylan has matured, so has his music, as he prepares for the release of “There’s More To Life” set for release later this fall. Tip of the fedora to MF.

Do you like bars? Candy bars, mobile phone service bars, RAP BARS? Well, if you like the latter, you’re in luck. Warming fans up for their House Party tour with 2013 XXL Freshman Dizzy Wright, Carter & David remix their last hit “Whatever We Want” with a new verse along with a guest cameo from Dizzy himself. In my mind, Dizzy is one of the most promising MC’s still grinding on the come up – a focused flow with a message, so naturally he delivers a killer verse. Carter though, DAMN he went in on this.

Kaytranada’s remix of MNEK’s Wrote A Song About You was awesome to begin with, but it sounds surprisingly good with rap vocals over it. EaSWay, a young and upcoming rapper out of LA, flows into the beat like he was put on the original song. Enjoy some Skizzy Mars-escque vibes, and be on the lookout for EaSWay.

The homie Ryan sent over a project he’s been working on with OGs Emilio Sparks from Shade 45 and John Sparkz from SRFSCHL, The Randy Savage EP, an ode to hip hop and wrestling, which showcases the hottest underground hip hop acts of today, including Smoke DZA, Casey Veggies, Joe Fnkoo, Devin Miles, and more. If they had CDs of this EP, on that old school mixtape vibe, I’d have it bumping in the car, this has that classic East Coast sound to it, straight raw hip hop, and it goes hard! This is must listen!

This is probably .OZ‘s biggest sound yet, and when I say big, I mean more along the lines of it BANGS. This remix is the perfect integration of original sound vs new sound. I feel like a lot of artists are trying to hit that medium recently and .OZ along with DreDream have accomplished it nicely. After the release of his first EP 4 months ago “Just Kick It”, .OZ plans to come back with singles stronger and headier than ever before.

The interwebs are ablaze so early in the morning with Kendrick Lamar deciding to release the first single of his upcoming new album. Featuring a sample of the Isley Brothers’ “Who’s that lady”, the song is an uptempo feel good track that Kendrick enlightens us with. Using one of his various vocal tones, Kendrick is always finding new ways to push the boundary and keep us guessing. Keep clicking repeat because it’s only a matter of time before this song is everywhere.
P.S. it dropped two hours ago and already has 400,000 plays…
