Freestyle, Hip-Hop | XV – Stone Cold (Recipe Freestyle)

Posted by on May 30, 2012

Vizzy drops off this little freestyle to show his pride in his city. Coming from the state of Kansas as a rapper must be hard, so it’s nice to see Vizzy showing love to his roots. I love when artists take pride in their city, Macklemore, Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa, and many others have released songs dedicated to their cities. This is supposedly a freestyle, but in todays game, I feel like the word “freestyle” is thrown around pretty loosely. Sound off in the comments or get at me in the chat box(@J_Salzer) with your thoughts on the topic of freestyling and it’s place in music. No download yet, but be on the lookout for this posting being updates soon with the DL link. Downloads were enables as I was writing this post. That’s a good look.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Mac Miller – Clarity [Music Video]

Mac is back with the always creative Ian Wolfson of Rex Arrow Films for his newest video, “Clarity” off his Macadelic mixtape.  Mac’s last video, “Thoughts From A Balcony” didn’t quite cut it for me, despite my love for that song, as he decided to give director Justin Boyd a shot at the show.  Lacking the creative edge we see time and time from Rex Arrow, this video is back to the standard I expect from Mac.  Trippy, yes.  Abstract, yes.  Unlike any other of Mac’s video, yes.  Macadelic, yes.  Even if you aren’t particularly fond of the song itself, embrace the Mac. 


Dubstep, Hip-Hop | Mac Miller – I Bring The Soul & He Brings The Funk || Smoke & Drank || Flashing Lights

Posted by on April 13, 2012

A few new tracks featuring Mac Miller have dropped this week. The first one being “I Bring The Soul & He Brings The Funk” off De la Soul member DJ Maseo’s upcoming project, DJ Conductor. Mac drops funky flows throughout the entire track as Maseo produces the soul. Up next is a song that will be featured on French Montana’s next mixtape, Coke Boys 3. The duo go in delivering flows about the two things they know best, “Smoke & Drank”. Lastly we have Mac Miller trying his hand at rapping over a dubstep beat. He remixes the popular dubstep production “Flashing Lights” by Chase and Status & SubFocus which featured Takura. These three tracks should hold all you Mac fans over for awhile.

Mac Miller drops his 2nd video off the Macadelic mixtape, Thoughts From A Balcony. This is definitely one of the stand out songs on the project in my opinion. This video has a different look than most of Mac’s videos because this time it was shot by Justin Boyd, not Rex Arrow. It’s a pretty simple, straight forward video but does the trick! If you haven’t heard Macadelic yet I suggest you grab that here right now!

Let me preface this by saying if Mac Miller is your role model, you should likely set your sights higher. Artists are people too. They’re inevitably going to make mistakes. Fans often exalt artists on a moral pedestal, creating a misguided but well intentioned belief that their favorite artist can do no wrong. Whether he accepts it or not, Mac Miller is a role model to many. I can’t imagine how many flat-brimmed wearing kids out there look up to him. Understandably, he’s trying to do damage control by denying the allegations. I don’t blame him. His handlers are probably going on PR blitz as we speak.

Frankly, there’s no way to prove whether or not he’s under the influence of narcotics. All we have to go on is a video. It’s hardly any evidence at all, and Mac Miller knows that. He’ll sweep this under the rug and dismiss it on Twitter like it’s nothing. Fans will jump to his defense and another scandal will break by tomorrow erasing all memory of this video entirely #problemsolved. Let this be a lesson to those who put their trust in an artist’s hands. Don’t make an artist your role model, they’ll only disappoint you. Rich Mayo once said, “You’ve got to be careful whom you pattern yourself after because you’re likely to become just like them.” Go back and re-read that. Free Jewelry.

Hip-Hop | Gaines – Chill Out (Loud Remix)

Posted by on March 28, 2012

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Macadelic remixes have begun! This one comes from my man Gaines who put his own spin on Mac Miller’s “Loud”. It’s titled “Chill Out” and I’m really feeling this one, especially his sound on the hook. Gaines is someone who I’ve been showing a lot of support for since he approached me months back to promote his video for “Mental“. Since then, he’s been on his grind and dropped a dope video which featured Mod Sun called “Party“. If you’re diggin’ Gaines you can check out his previous videos after the jump!
