Abstract Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | Don’t Sleep On McKinley Dixon’s Who Taught You To Hate Yourself? Mixtape

Posted by on April 14, 2016

Annapolis, Maryland (or MD in general) isn’t too well known for it’s hip-hop scene or even music scene in general to be honest with you, but the other day I was put onto McKinley Dixon an upcoming rapper and musician who is slowly but surely making some waves. His most recent project was called Who Taught You To Hate Yourself and it’s clearly heavily influenced by the 90’s scene of hip-hop. Spiritual, lyrical, deep content that goes above and beyond most mainstream rap that is currently playing on the radio. I’m rooting for the underground and for McKinley Dixon to continue to make dope shit. Listen to his tape above and keep him on your map.

Switching it up a bit here, we’re turning the dial back with a mix that screams take me back to the 3 day weekend. The boys of summer have teamed up with Aquarium Drunkard radio show to bring you 2 hours of vintage soul, funk and r&b, easing you back into the work week with Vol. 46 of the Fixtape Series.

“Somewhere deep inside the following two-hour soul mix for Sole, Chuck Carbo asks “Can I Be Your Squeeze?”. With Valentine’s day falling this weekend it’s a fair question. But regardless of how amorous you’re feeling, the funk, to quote George Clinton, is its own reward.”

Hip-Hop, Mixtapes, Rap | Check out “Servin” (Feat. StoneyThaDealer) off of Problem’s new mixtape “Mollywood 3: The Relapse”

Posted by on June 30, 2015

Last Friday morning at 6:00am I drove to LA on a 6 hour journey to see Problem’s viewing of his upcoming “Mollywood 3: The Relapse” mixtape in Hollywood. Part one of his mixtape is entitled “A Side” and was released today exclusively to HotNewHipHop.com at 3:54pm EST. Part 2 of his mixtape is entitled “B side” and will be released on July 2nd. Essentially he played 45 seconds of each song and let me tell you that this mixtape is filled with some big time bangers. The whole mixtape is very impressive but some notable tracks to look out for are “Servin,” “Relapse,” and “Make Me Say (At Yi Yi).” “Mollywood 3 is what’s needed right now,” explains Problem. “I’m not satisfied with how the club, the streets, nor how the playlists in all the ladies cars sounds like right now. I’m inspired by DIAMOND LANE. I’m inspired by independence. So when I chose to do a double cd, but drop each side on two different days, the reason is as simple as this: because I muthaf***in can.” After listening to this mixtape, it is safe to say that Problem is back. Enjoy!
