Hip-Hop, Mixtapes, Rap | Vic Mensa – Innanetape (Mixtape)

vic mensa - innanetape

Now that the blogosphere has had time to recover from the massive shockwave that hit it upon the release of #INNANETAPE, I figured it was time to give my spin on things.

The tape starts with a sound reminiscent of Kids These Days, a live drum drum pattern and the screech of an electric guitar. However, the former KTD frontman does not play it safe by any means and is constantly pushing sound boundaries throughout the tape. Mensa calls on board fellow Chi-town representatives, Rockie Fresh, Chance the Rapper, and BJ The Chicago Kid to add some Midwest flare to the tape, as well as TDE conglomerate, Ab-Soul.

From top to bottom this project is one of my favorites of the year so far. Check out the stand-out tracks, “Orange Soda”, “Hollywood, LA”, “Holy Holy”, and “YNSP”, but be sure to give the full tape a listen!

As promised Tarik drops a new track this week. On Tarik last tape, T.R.I.G.S he dropped a cover of Kanye’s hit Everything I Am. He follows that up with a part 2 that I can say is just as good as the first one. Follow him on his social media.

Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | Flatbush ZOMBiES – Better off Dead (Mixtape)

Posted by on September 11, 2013


I haven’t been this excited for a mixtape since Chance dropped Acid Rap, and we all know how that one turned out. Anywho, Flatbush ZOMBiES released their brand spanking new 19 track mixtape with two features, Action Bronson and Danny Brown. These guys are the next ones to blow, especially after seeing them at North Coast Music Festival Labor Day weekend. Peep the tape below and make sure to download it as well.


Hip-Hop, Rap | Chance The Rapper – Everybody’s Somebody’s Everything (Video)

Posted by on July 30, 2013

What can be said about a man who has already had so much said about him? Chance the Rapper has the whole world watching his every move, judging the music, the videos, and him as a person. However, through all of this he’s managed to keep a level head, even if that is partially accredited to the drugs he takes.

“Everybody’s Somebody’s Everything” was surely a standout track on Acid Rap, with Chance singing/rapping in a brash manor, yet with a positive sentiment. And, after having his army of loyal fans get the title to trend worldwide, he unleashed the Austin Vesely produced video to accompany. The video doesn’t disappoint, and although the song is lacking the third verse from Saba which was originally on the tape, the added piano melody tacked on to the end is a good substitution.

Enjoy the video, and check out the ever-so-promoted ChanceRaps.com for everything you’ll need to know about young Chancellor.

Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | Lucki Eck$ – Alternative Trap (Mixtape)

Posted by on July 26, 2013

A little while ago I posted Lucki Eck$’ video, Everything Out$ide, a song that really put Lucki on a lot of people’s radars, but today, we receive his debut mixtape and it’s a must download. With a flow comparable to Joey Bada$$, Lucki Eck$ definitely has the makings of a star. Peep the tape below and make sure to download it as well. Be on the lookout for this kid down the line, you’ll be hearing a lot more of him.


Hip-Hop | Joey Bada$$ – Summer Knights (Mixtape)

Posted by on July 2, 2013


The sophomore mixtape from New York’s Joey Badass has finally arrived. To be personally honest the tape didn’t really do it for me. I enjoy the 90s sound that Joey has but with this tape, it didn’t bring that 1999 vibe that made Joey so big. Most of the songs off Summer Knights follow a more bassline heavy type that embrace his raps. Don’t get me wrong, I could listen to Joey’s raps for days but with a follow up mixtape, but I would have liked to see more diversity amongst the songs. All and all it definitely is still a must listen and download. I’m very interested to see where Joey goes from here, especially with who he signs with. Get familiar with Mr. Bada$$, because I he’s definitely one of the new faces of hip hop.
