Trap | Clinton Sparks & Knife Party ft. Jim Jones- Internet Friends (The Die Trap)

Posted by on November 28, 2012

Even though Clinton has been hard at work finishing his impending Disco Ball & Chain album (which has features from Rick Ross, Afrojack, and Travie McCoy) it hasn’t stopped him from touring the world, and bringing “awesome” to every party he attends. Like the true work-a-holic that he is, Clinton has been simultaneously working on the latest installment to his popular mixtape series, “My Awesome Mixtape 4” which is slated to drop on Valentine’s Day 2013. Rumor has it that 2-Chainz, Waka Flaka Flame, Rick Ross, and Snoop Dogg may show up to the party as well. This track is nothing short of a banger. Run ze trap!

Chill, Exclusive, Hip-Hop | Beau Young Prince – King Midas (Video) [FNT Exclusive]

Posted by on May 30, 2012

Now that’s officially summer, there’s nothing to get me into my out of school mood like Beau Young Prince. Today, he drops his newest video, King Midas, exclusively with his favorite blog. *The story of King Midas has applied to Beau Young perfectly as of late. Everything he’s recently released has been on FNT, because it has all been gold. In this video, Beau reminds me of a mix of John Lennon, Snoop Dogg, and Wiz Khalifa. But his music could not be more unique. Beau runs around his city giving off a positive vibe, and even looks like a caveman at some points. The music is high energy and fun, and Beau’s lyrics are always solid and match the tone of the song perfectly. This video was shot, edited, and directed by Tim Driscoll of “TheCollective.” Also make sure you stop by his facebook and show him some love. Crank this song up, check out the video, kick back, crack a beer if you’re of legal age, and enjoy.

*For those of you who don’t know the story of King Midas, he was a king in ancient Greek times, who was cursed by the gods and everything he touched turned to gold. Now you might be thinking “that’s not a curse,” but eventually, EVERYTHING he touched turned to gold and he was all alone.

Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | 50 Cent – The Lost Tape (Mixtape)

Posted by on May 22, 2012

NEWS FLASH: 50’s back. After taking a detour since his last album Before I Self Destruct, Fif releases his latest mixtape The Lost Tape with DJ Drama doing the mixing. Whetting our appetite for his anticipated album coming later this year, which is thankfully going to be a return to Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ (was supposed to be last year, but as usual Interscope Records is all up in his business), this mixtape is a flash of the old Curtis Jackson. The tape features Eminem, Snoop Dogg, 2 Chainz and fellow G-Unit members Kidd Kidd (on three tracks) and Precious Paris, with beats from Araab Muzik, Tone Mason, Illmind and Mike Will to name a few. Some of the best tracks in my opinion include Swag Level, Riot Remix (which goes ultra HAM) and Murder One. Check out the tracks and download below.

Electro, Freestyle, Hip-Hop, House, Rap, Throwbacks | Snoop Dogg and Soundcloud: A Love Story

Posted by on March 20, 2012

A few days ago, Snoop Dogg was handed a slip of paper that would change the face of the modern world forever. On it were the username and password to a Soundcloud account — an account long forgotten and gathering dust, an account more unloved and underutilized than so many Myspace pages of yore. We don’t know how this account came into existence (from the looks of page 7, it was set up by his management team about a year ago), but these details are unimportant now. Because for whatever reason, on this fated March morning, Snoop Dogg set out to make his Soundcloud the greatest effing Soundcloud on the planet.

I’m not kidding when I say that. This is one of the most epic and entertaining things I’ve come across in a long time. My running theory is that Snoop Dogg hit 47 js and then parked himself in front of his computer for 15 hours, just uploading without so much as a bathroom break. I’ve been sitting at work going through this thing and it’s literally a goldmine — there are rough cuts, studio outtakes, instrumentals that are far from finished, remakes of some of his older tracks, and then total curve balls like this hour long disco-funk-electro-tinged-slow-jam-heavy mix that I can’t even do justice to in words. It’s a weird but wonderful insight into his creative process, and the best part is that everything up there is a free download. If you’ve been in need of a good Snoop Dogg fix since 2004, this is your moment. And even if you haven’t been, do yourself a favor and check his stuff out anyway. All the major musical foodgroups are covered: “SNOOPADELIC MIXX,” “BLOWFLY G SHIT,” and, of course, just…”GOOD MUSIC.”

Snoop, we’ve missed you. Welcome back to the game.

SNOOP DOGG’S SOUNDCLOUD: 5+ Pages of Straight Up SC Gold

Edit: goodness, he just uploaded like eight more tracks in the past 20 minutes. Snoop Dogg, what are you up to over there? Is this a livestream of your life? Whatever, I dig it. His SC is about to blow up like the puppy cam.

Hip-Hop | Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa & Snoop Dogg ft. Juicy J

Posted by on December 6, 2011

Just around this time last year Nicki Minaj really broke into the scene and abruptly took over the billboard charts.  Now one of the hottest artists in the game, the raunchy rap lady brings us presumably the first single off his sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, due out February 14th.   Exercising several of her alter egos on this track (Nicki, Barbie, Roman, Martha and Rosa), Nicki makes it clear that Roman is leading the charge into the next album.  Overall, I’m not overly impressed with this track, but it’s definitely raw Roman and I’m hoping it grows on me.

P.S. If you didn’t see Bizarre’s tribute to Nicki on our Facebook page, check that out here if you’re looking for a guaranteed laugh.

Mac and Devin unleash another dirty cut off their upcoming soundtrack to their movie, Mac & Dev Go To High School.  I gave you an update on the album late last week which you can read up on HERE, but this track will definitely be one of the top tracks on the project.  For those of you who weren’t already aware, Juicy J is the newest signee to Wiz’s label, Taylor Gang.

Hip-Hop | Snoop Dogg ft R Kelly, Busta R – Platinum (Remix) | Hip-Hop

Posted by on June 9, 2011

Above are the visuals to the Choppa Choppa Down Remix. I’ve got to be honest, I’m not wild about this track – it lacks the catchy quality that most Rick Ross and Khalifa songs possess (especially their most recent mainstream projects). However, I rarely pass on the visuals to these artists tracks. Rick Ross doesn’t do much for me here (especially since he needs to upgrade his Florida house already in light of his massive success over the last year) but Khalifa seems to save the day here. I’ve thrown in some other HIp-Hop tracks below that Cstan missed (or most likely skipped) but since they include names like Meek Mill and Gorilla Zoe, I had to post them up.
