Chill, Hip-Hop | Jacob Es – Swimming in the Sublime (Mixtape)

Posted by on February 6, 2013


This post is about two weeks late, and for that I apologize. But I’ve been hella busy, and I’m just having the chance to sit down and take a listen to Jacob Es’ latest mixtape. I’ve been listening to Jacob’s music since I first started blogging about a year and a half ago. I’ve seen steady improvement from Jacob, and that’s one of the main things I look for in upcoming artists.

On his tape, Swimming in the Sublime, Jake picks up solid features from Reeves of Aer and FNT favorite Jetpack Jones. The production is solid throughout, with up-tempo, positive beats without too much synthesizers and other electronic instruments we often hear on the radio. Just looking at the album cover, you’ll get a feel for where this mixtape will take you. Check out the mixtape in it’s entirety below via soundcloud.

Hip-Hop | Jacob Es – Paranoia(Official Video)

The time has come. The Jacob Es x Charlie Like the River contest has come to a close. It’s bittersweet for all of you because you can’t win necklace, but we do get the exclusive drop for Jacob’s newest video. The video features stunning visuals, paired with classic Jacob flow. I say “classic Jacob Es flow” because even in a career so young, he has already created a signature sound through his unique delivery. Paranoia is no different, that Jacob Es style his fans have come to know and love, and of course, he’s rocking Charlie Like the River paint. Charlie himself just informed me this morning that you all have ONE more chance to win a necklace. Go to Jacob’s facebook, and share the video, and you’ll be entered in the drawing for a bonus necklace. For the regular contest winners, check Jacob’s and Charlie’s facebook pages later in the afternoon for the announcement.

This is so sweet I wish I could be entering myself into it. Probably the easiest giveaway we’ve ever hosted, the only thing Charlie and Jake are asking of you are that you simply like their respective facebook pages. After that, you’re automatically entered in a random drawing to win a Charlie Like the River necklace, my favorite neck apparel. In addition to this great little contest, Jacob Es will be giving us the exclusive drop for his newest music video, and let me tell you, it’s dope. I’ve even embedded both of their facebook links below so all you have to do is hit a button, and BOOM. Could it be any easier? If you’ve already liked both facebook pages, just drop me a tweet here, and let me know so I can put your name in. FIVE(5) winners will be picked at random on the day of the video’s release, Tuesday. This contest is too easy to pass up my friends, so you might as well enter. Why not? Be on the lookout for Jacob Es’ music video releasing exclusively on FNT.

Hip-Hop | Jacob Es ft. Reeves of Aer – Get Down(Video)

Posted by on March 31, 2012

Jacob Es drops off the perfect track for my Saturday. Jacob gives us a soothing hook, with Reeves of Aer killing it on the verse. Both men are rocking my neck apparel, Charlie Like The River. Get Down exemplifies the style that Jacob Es has come to show me on track after track. I hate to use the word “chill” to describe music, because it’s so vague. But that’s exactly what this track is, the beat, the hook, the verses. So chill out, grab a beer(if you’re of age), and take a seat in your man chair.

Hip-Hop | Mr. Forbes – Nike’s On My Feet | Hip-Hop

Posted by on April 6, 2011

Mr. Forbes flipped Mac Miller’s hit “Nike’s On My Feet” with some edgy verses that still maintain the “chill” vibe of the original. If you’ve overplayed Mac’s version, give this one a shot – I’m digging the change. Check out more o Mr. Forbes work on Facebook.
