Hip-Hop, Videos | Mac Miller – Party On 5th Ave (Music Video)

After hearing the rip of this track after it’s Hot 97 debut on Tuesday, Mac gives MTV the honors of releasing the official video.  This marks the third official single off Mac’s debut album, Blue Slide Park, and I believe it’s produced by E. Dan.  As BIGLIFE was saying the other day, I’m not sure this album is going to live up to it’s hype.  It’s hard to say because Mac’s mixtapes have been absolute gems, which makes me wonder, did he set the bar too high for himself?

I respect the fact that he’s not featuring any other artists on the album, which is extremely rare, especially for a debut album, but judging by what I’ve heard so far I’m slightly disappointed.  Frick Park Market is my favorite of the three tracks released to date and that hook sounds dangerously similar to “Donald Trump”.  I think Mac’s verses on “Blue Slide Park” and “Party On 5th Ave” have been on point, but the hooks are less than I expected.  In Mac’s favor, his single’s always seem to grow on me, so hopefully that’s the case with these.

What’s everyone’s thoughts on Blue Slide Park thus far?

Props to MTV for asking this question and even bigger props to Mac Miller for providing a thoughtful response. Nowadays album titles, song titles, etc seem like mindless tasks for some artists, but fortunately this restored some of my faith in the artists that run this hip hop show. More importantly, this just goes to show how invested and passionate Miller is about his music career.

I first heard about Ranidu from one of our Affiliate Artists who just may be planning a smash single with this Sinhalese sensation. Ranidu is the first Sinhalese artist to be played on the venerated Radio1 of the BBC and also the creator of the first Sinhalese single to be played on MTV. With a resume like this it’s about time the FNT nation lent him an ear.. For more from Ranidu check out his facebook

Mashups | MASHUPS | Kap Slap 151 Mixtape

Posted by on January 6, 2011

About a week ago we posted one of the best mashups I’ve heard this year which utilized one of the most monumental tracks to hit the United States in a while; Edward Maya’s “Stereo Dream.” The original track provides enough of a mainstream house feel that is made it to MTV and radios all over the nation, which (quote me on this) will take that annoying girl in your business administration class from saying she hates techno (when she really means electro), to saying Deadmau5 and Rusko are her favorite artists (kill me). REGARDLESS, Kap Slap is about to drop a massive DUBSTEP mashup featuring some of my favorite songs (Flux Pavilion’s remix of cracks, and a little skrillex) look out for that, we’ll be posting that the second it drops! Do your self a favor and download these and the entire mixtape HERE.

Hip-Hop | HIP-HOP | Eminem – Difficult

Posted by on December 31, 2010

Here’s a heartfelt track by the legend who has taken the month of December by storm with his blog chart topping tracks. This hookless song, with meaningful lyrics that make up for any missing elements, deserves to be single posted – if only to show some degree of respect for a guy who publicly addressed his pain through music. The line about buying presents for the kids of his fallen friend touched a soft spot in me. MTV covered this track so I’ll let them do the talking…

Eminem has always maintained that the death of his best friend and D12 member Proof was one of the most devastating moments of his life, and four years after his passing, Eminem is still upholding the late MC’s legacy in his music.

On Thursday (December 30), the Em track “Difficult” surfaced on the Web, in which the Detroit lyricist devotes several bars to his relationship with his fallen homey — who was gunned down in a Motor City nightclub in 2006 — and how the memory of his trusted friend still lingers.
