Hip-Hop | Flatbush Zombies – The Hangover

Posted by on October 15, 2012

Seeing as I just got hooked onto their music, Flatbush Zombies, who you might know from the A$AP Mob’s Bath Salts track, release this brand new track. Hailing from Brooklyn, these boys have a similar sound to the A$AP Mob, Action Bronson, Danny Brown, and many of those similar underground rappers. The beat was produced by Erick Arc Elliot, who is usually behind the boards for the group. If you have yet to download their latest project D.R.U.G.S., grab that below.


Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | Ground Up – Supernatural [Mixtape]

Posted by on September 21, 2012

Ground Up have mastered the mixtape game.  I’ve lost count of how many tapes deep they are at this point.  Seven, Eight, Nine?  More importantly, the Philly trio have stayed true to their colors over the years.  In house producer Bij Lincs crafted more than 75% of the production on Supernatural, while Azar and Malakai flex their vocal chords with authentic, home grown lyrics fitting for both partying and vibing.  Along with Bij Lincs, producers Teddy Roxpin and Mike Jerz also hold production features on this project.  Here are some highlights below, but save your fingers some time and click download for the full tape.

Produced by Tim Weber and Vibe, GMAD’s “Summer Mixtape” is the perfect soundtrack to turn on by the pool while you crush a few brews with your buds.

Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | Mick Boogie x HYPETRAK – Represent The Stripes [Mixtape]

Posted by on July 24, 2012

With the 2012 Summer Olympics only three days away, the infamous Mick Boogie teamed up with HYPETRAK for an Olympic inspired mixtape.  Adidas supplies the stripes, while some of our favorite up-and-comers highlight the tape with exclusive new releases, including the likes of OnCue & Action Bronson.  I haven’t heard the tape in full just yet, but so far it’s well worth a DL.  In the end, it’s for America.  America the beautiful, dammit.  Lace up your library with these new tracks and be sure to show love to the Olympians wearing the red, white, and blue starting this friday, 7/27 in London.

P.S. Yes, that Iman Shumpert is the New York Knicks Iman Shumpert.  Sadly, I can’t say he’s any worse than Lou Williams or Ron Artest, but then again, that means less than nothing.

Hip-Hop | 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.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Nardwuar vs. Kendrick Lamar

Posted by on March 23, 2012

[do action=”youtube” videoid=”6s5vlQdQp4s”/]

Nardwuar is single handedly taking SXSW by storm.  He’s been on an absolute tear, interviewing A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, Danny Brown, and now K. Dot.  Per usual, Nardwuar leaves K. Dot’s mind boggled, wondering where he dug up such personal information.  As “A” said earlier this week, Narduar is hands down the best interviewer in hip-hop and the current streak he is on at SXSW only adds to his legendary track record.  12 minutes with Nardwuar will change your life.  Doot Doola Doot Doo… Doot Doo!

Who would be the most interesting Nardwuar interview?

Hip-Hop | Nardwuar vs. Action Bronson

Posted by on March 21, 2012

Well isn’t this a gem. Fresh off SXSW. Nardwuar interviews the white Rick Ross, Action Bronson. Nardwuar is easily my favorite interviewer in the game. He does his research, as you can tell by his numerous personalized gifts he ALWAYS graces artists with. His questions are always deep and thought provoking. Anytime I watch one of Nardwuar’s interviews, I gain an entirely different view of whoever is being interviewed. Get familiar with Action Bronson.
