Part 2 of the 5 mixtape compilation Flipsyde is currently putting together. A mix of old and new, reworked, originals, brand new collabs, & more, this 5 song project is a good variety of Flipsyde’s sound versatility. With a feature from the beautiful Nicole Scherzinger and production from Akon, Zion I, & Kardinal Offishall, it’s a well structured project. The Oakland trio is at it again so stay tuned for the rest of this unreleased mixtape series.

Flipsyde may be a new name to some, but they’re no noobs on the scene. The Oakland trio have been carving their niche in the alternative hip-hop/rock market for close to ten years, gaining a lot of their popularity from extreme sports fans and athletes. Personally, I first found out about these guys about 5 years ago and would loop their album while I was shredding semi-fresh pow pow. They were signed to Interscope for several years but recently broke out of their contract and are once again independent. If you’re feeling this track and want some of their older material, hit me on Twitter @Grubeats and I’ll share the goods.

I slipped on this short new track YONAS dropped to tip off the new year. YONAS has been in constant rotation on MTVU with his video for “Sky Kidz” and has also been electrifying crowds while on tour with The White Panda and Timeflies. XXL Freshman 2013?

Chiddy throws a verse on 2am Club’s alternative/pop tune, “Every Evening”. Not a huge surprise after the two toured together in the fall.
Ricky Rozay grunts his way onto this remix of Lil Wayne and Bruno Mars “Mirror”. The original served as a bonus cut off of Tha Carter IV, but has seen it’s fair share of radio play.
