Logic – Now (Prod. By 6ix, Arthur McArthur & Swiff D)

Posted by on April 8, 2014

Logic Now Prod. By 6ix Arthur McArthur Swiff D freshnewtracks Logic   Now (Prod. By 6ix, Arthur McArthur & Swiff D)

Those who have been following Logic from the start know him, his outlook on music, and his demeanor.  Confidence > Cockiness.  A few noteworthy lines from previous songs…

“Never cocky I’m just confident the flow is prominent” – via “Ask ‘Em”

“You gotta realize, a lot of the time when I talk
And I’m talking extremely cocky, I’m not talking
About myself, I’m talking about the work.” – via “Numbers”

Since his last mixtape, Welcome to Forever, Young Sinatra has further developed his voice into a powerful, charismatic sound.  With this, some fans may argue his music has changed.  Changed?  No.  Developed?  Yes.  His versatility continues to improve and his fan base continues to grow.  With that comes clingers (#RAPGAMEBARNACLES).  Everyone and their mother wants a piece of the pie.  Once-haters are suddenly starving for a taste.  Logic’s newest release, “Now” addresses those naysayers and urchins with heavy production and a balance of swift and machine gun raps.  This marks the first single off his newly announced Free EP, While You Wait, which will serve as an appetizer to his full length Def Jam debut.

Gotta give it to 6ix, Arthur McArthur, & Swiff D on this one.  This production KICKS.

One more thing – Logic will be touring with Krewella & Radical Something in part of the Verge Campus tour starting this week AND he will also be crossing the country with labelmate QuESt and ©. Castro this summer.

Viceroy Nelly Ride Wit Me Remix Nelly   Ride Wit Me (Viceroy Jet Life Remix)

This is precisely why us East-coasters love Viceroy.  While you spoiled Californian’s, Texan’s, Floridians, and any other Southern-ians have warm weather all year round, us New Englander’s are hitting the beach the minute it hits 60 degrees in April.  The king of “Summertime All The Time” hits us with a filthy remix of vintage Nelly – Ride Wit Me.  If you’re looking for windows down music, regardless of the temperature outside, look no further.

The Hood Internet – Higher Greens (Schoolboy Q x Just Blaze & Baauer)

Higher Greens The Hood Internet freshnewtracks.com  The Hood Internet   Higher Greens (Schoolboy Q x Just Blaze & Baauer)

I get it, a lot of people hate mashups.  They’re effortless tracks made by elementary “DJ’s”.  Sure, some are garbage, but for me, when I hear a mashup that works, I can’t get enough of it.  It could be the simplest combination, but sometimes the “art” of mashup’s are all about finding the right fit.  The Hood Internet continually impresses with their work and their newest masterpiece, “Higher Greens” is the perfect fusion of rap and trap.  So, if you’re a mashup hater, feel free to keep hating, but this track KNOCKS.

Lebron’s Rapping and It’s Not an April Fools Joke.

Posted by on April 1, 2014

Lebron Rapping freshnewtracks.com  500x349 Lebrons Rapping and Its Not an April Fools Joke.

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;

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…

“Shots are bright, I got a tan, killa’”

Timeflies Tuesday – Paranoid

Posted by on March 18, 2014

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.
