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.

Hip-Hop | Big Sean ft. Mac Miller – Hundred Dollar Bill Skyscraper

Posted by on June 28, 2012

Big Sean teams up with Mac Miller on this Drumma Boy produced duet. This a collaboration I’ve been waiting to hear. According to Big Sean they have been homies for some time (as seen in the tweet below), but finally got the opportunity to put something together and this was the result. He’s been a busy man lately working on multiple projects such as the G.O.O.D Music collective album Cruel Summer, and his sophomore album Sean. Be on the lookout for those when they hit the shelves!
