Hip-Hop, Review | Grubeats’ Top 12 of ’12

Posted by on January 14, 2013

Grubeats; fashionably tardy as always.  I can’t promise I’ve saved the best for last, but hopefully this eclectic mix of tracks tickle’s at least party of your fancy.  I’d enjoy hearing from you in the comments section if you have opinions on any of these songs!

12.) Skizzy Mars – Sirens

This young star didn’t sound my radar until late spring of ’12.  I had heard the name and few scattered verses, but overlooked the true talent Skizzy Mars was bringing to the table until I first heard “Sirens”.  With sounds similar to a young Cudi, Skizzy himself only recently graduated high school and has only begun to lie the brick and mortar for long, prosperous career.

11.) Skrillex & Damian Marley – Make It Bun Dem

As you probably know, I’m not a die heard EDM head like many writers and followers of this site.  No kandi for this kid.  I do however, enjoy just about anything Skrillex lays his hands on.  Couple the addictive production with Damian Marley’s rasta raps and you have pure gold.  If and when hip-hop and EDM cross paths, this is the type of execution I expect.

Don’t bother telling me this is old, I know its been out for a month plus.

Michael Jones (Wax), not to be confused with the infamous Mike Jones, puts to work his uncanny ability to exercise trickery and sexual innuendos in his newest video for his lead single, “Rosana”.  It’s as addictive as popcorn at the movie theater and once the you hear the hook once, you’ll be loving and hating me simultaneously.  Big Wax, you’ve got another one homie.

Purchase on iTunes: Wax – Rosana (Prod. by Nobody Famous)
