Hip-Hop, Videos | OnCue – This View From Here

Posted by on July 9, 2014

Think this kid has a chip on his shoulder?  That’s an understatement.  Cuey wants to drop this album even more than you and I want to hear it.  No doubt has it been a long road, but I can finally taste it.  As you’ll see in his newest video, Cue is rapping with an edge.  He’s hungry.  He’s boiling over.  He’s ready to prove the naysayers wrong and elevate himself as one of the elite.  “This View From Here” is exactly what I’ve been waiting for.  You can see the anticipation for this album burning through his eyes and ringing through his voice.  With Just Blaze signed on as the executive producer for the album, I can guarantee this will be one of the highlights of 2014.

Angry Young Man, September 3rd.  Mark your calendars.

Albums, Interviews | Just Blaze DjCityTV Interview

DJCity | YouTube

Shout out to DJCity for sending over their latest interview with Just Blaze! Having met the veteran legendary producer a few weeks ago, and hearing the man speak the truth on the current state of the music scene, and his transition into the DJ realm, I felt the need to share this. I had a chance to catch him live in Miami, as he filled in for a set after Kaytranada, and I can tell you for a fact the man does more than push buttons, going as far as beatboxing on the mic when the sound system accidentally shut off, to keep the party going! Respect to DJCity, and respect to Just Blaze! This is a must watch interview!

Hip-Hop, Mashups, Trap | The Hood Internet – Higher Greens (Schoolboy Q x Just Blaze & Baauer)

Higher Greens - The Hood Internet freshnewtracks.com


I get it, a lot of people hate mashups.  They’re effortless tracks made by elementary “DJ’s”.  Sure, some are garbage, but for me, when I hear a mashup that works, I can’t get enough of it.  It could be the simplest combination, but sometimes the “art” of mashup’s are all about finding the right fit.  The Hood Internet continually impresses with their work and their newest masterpiece, “Higher Greens” is the perfect fusion of rap and trap.  So, if you’re a mashup hater, feel free to keep hating, but this track KNOCKS.

Trap | S-Preme x Mr. Music x Just Blaze x Baauer- Higher

Posted by on January 29, 2013


I’m a huge “repeat-one whore” and this song as brought out the worst of it in me. A friend sent this over to me a few days ago and I’ve been blasting it ever since. Honestly, I’ve been pretty against the whole trap movement recently but S-Preme’s flow is too nasty to not love this track.

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, Mixtapes, Rap | Saigon – Warning Shots 3 [Mixtape]

Posted by on January 29, 2012

After once vowing to retire after he dropped his first (and only) album,

“Whatever the case may be, We do a census on who is the sickest lyricist, they say me, That’s without a album out, y’all rated me, I drop one and I’mma bow out gracefully” – Saigon

…the Yardfather returns with the third installment of his Warning Shots mixtape, One Foot In The Grave.  Hungrier and more determined than ever, Saigitty follows up last years album (one of my personal favorites of the year), The Greatest Story Never Told [Purchase Here], with a cut-throat project once again proving to fans and critics that he’s one of the hardest lyricists out. The tape definitely holds true to his “underground” image, banging heavy with executive production from the one and only, Just Blaze.  The Brooklyn native has already confirmed another album is on the way, and judging by the work Sai’s been putting in lately, I’d say it’s coming very soon.  Below are a few of my favorite cuts:
