Abstract Hip-Hop, Albums, Artists, Chill, Freestyle, Pop | Leah Haxhi Hits Hard with Summer Single- “Fade”
Posted by BIGLIFE on June 21, 2015
You’ve seen Leah’s unique covers here on Fresh New Tracks before, but this time NYC singer/songwriter Leah Haxhi drops her first single “Fade,” with music produced in Brooklyn by Mike Irish. The track mixes minimalistic piano with jam-sesh vibes to create a natural, catchy feel that blends pop, R&B, hip-hop, and even subtle jazz elements into a chilled groove, ready for the hot city summer. With a June 21st release date, “Fade” is the perfect summer anthem, setting the tone for “driving down the highway” and blasting music while “everybody sings along.” The single is paired with high quality visuals from the hands of Matt Phipps, filmmaker and creator of SkatersAtlas.com.
Leah says “I wrote this song last year on my birthday. I was in the studio free-styling and picturing myself flying down the highway with my boyfriend at the time just listening to music on the way to the beach, fading away into that moment of complete contentment and happiness. This song is an expression of that feeling, no matter what you’re doing in life.” Be on the lookout for more tunes from Leah, as she continues the countdown to her debut album release later this year. Be sure to follow her on Soundcloud as well as @LeahHaxhi on social media for info on her latest shows, music, and releases.

Her native country of Lebanon might hate her as a result of her chosen profession *cough cough*, but Americans sure do love the shit out of this 21-year old adult film actress. Mia Khalifa – the only search burning up more internet bandwidth than “Farrah Abraham’s Duck Lips” is on the brink of a Twitter trend thanks to our friends Timeflies. While Rez and Cal typically drop a new visual for their Timeflies Tuesday episodes, they Wu-Tang (diversify their bonds) and throw together an anthem in honor of Miss Mia recent success – yes, she is now the #1 pornstar on Pornhub *applaud*. The track is already garnering quite a bit of social traction as Mia herself has confessed her love for it. If all goes as planned, maybe the fellas will end up with a porn star’s phone # after all. That certainly never hurt anyone…well, probably unless you’re married.

When it comes to being American, Cal and Rez are always proudly sporting the red, white, & blue. With their recent album After Hours marinating on the charts, Timeflies haven’t been releasing weekly TFT’s as I’m sure you have hoped. Remixing Miley is more or less a staple of their game at this point, so what would be more American than flipping “Party In The U.S.A.” for their first freestyle in the past few weeks? Well, I can think of a few others, but this one definitely hits the nail on the head as we head into Independence weekend. So with that, kick back or turn up, but whatever you do, toast to the greatest country in the world.

It takes a lot to wake me a fallen blogstar up from his blog coma. This my friends, is one exception. Let me preface…
I’m sitting at my desk, dropping panties with my Excel wizardry, smashing through some emails while simultaneously scrolling through some blogs looking for new beats to feed my ears through the end of the work day. Some solid tunes along the way, but nothing too face melting for a Tuesday. Earlier in the morning I was scrolling through Twitter when I saw this tweet from LBJ;
I will be coming out with my mixtape April 16th. Feature on it Jay-Z, Drake, Ross, Meek, Juicy J, Kendrick, Snoop, and many more. “King Me”
— LeBron James (@KingJames) April 1, 2014
Joke, right? The last thing Lebron James should be doing is rapping. My initial thought was that Lebron was “hosting” a mixtape (in other words slapping his name on it for some seamless promotion), with “features” (meaning guest tracks) from Jay-Z, Drake, Kendrick, etc. Wrong. WRONG WRONG WRONG, GRUBE. Four hours later and my ears are literally listening to Lebron rap – my ears. For those who saw the Jimmy Fallon x Lebron skit know why this news is so disturbing. I feel violated.
Lebron opens up his “F*ckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt” freestyle with an impression of Bun B, I think? Lebron, haven’t you learned anything from your predecessors? A.I., Ron Artest, Shaq, Kobe, Tony Parker, Chris Webber, the list goes on, bro. You’re trying to be the best ever and you’re dropping corny raps like this? You’re already one of the most hated players in the NBA from your circus act of a departure from Cleveland to your broken face “incident” earlier this year. If anything, be like KD and stay under the radar producing. For the sake of the NBA and more importantly humanity, please do us all a favor and never pick up a mic again. Ever. Did Jordan ever rap? Stupid question. Sorry Lebron, you can keep rapping about your “2 RINGS” in your 2 Chainz voice, while Bill Russell laughs at your antics while sipping a bourbon browsing Amazon for a ceramic hand to hold his 11th ring. Don’t worry though…

I’m not a huge fan of Ty Dolla $ign. He’s a rap game gopher if I’ve ever seen one – he’ll breach the surface a couple times, then he’ll die off and another one will come along. On the plus side, he is the host of some killer beats, from which many great remixes have sprouted. Timeflies decided to bring it back to their roots on this weeks Tuesday installment with an auto-tuned freestyle rendition of the gopher’s chart topping single, “Paranoid”. Nothing bad can come out of Cal, Rez, and a golden shoe. Enjoy yet another teaser while we await their debut major label LP, due very soon.

Vonny del Fresco is fresh off the release of his After the Fall EP and decided to keep his fans on their toes with a short burst of music. “Studies” is a minute long freestyle/video that oozes energy and takes you on an robotic-sounding ride. The song was originally produced by Mr. Carmack, a name that is becoming increasingly popular in hip-hop production, and del Fresco decided to give the new-school production wave a spin with some sharp rhymes penetrating the already complex instrumental.
