Abstract Hip-Hop, Electronic | Flying Lotus – Ideas, Drafts, & Loops

Posted by on December 10, 2013

Flying LotusFlying Lotus is a must know artist in my book. He takes part in so much underground and mainstream music that if you don’t know who he is you are seriously missing out. I am a huge fan of his and it’s not just because of the work he does, but he is one of the most for real producers out there. Flying Lotus is loving life and having a great time doing what he does. This isn’t an album, it’s not an EP, or even a mixtape. Flying Lotus just assembled a folder of what he has been working on lately, what a guy. The folder contains tracks he has done for Adventure Time, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and Grand Theft Auto V, including collaborations with Earl Sweatshirt, MF DOOM, The Underachievers and many more. Of the 24 tracks within the folder there are also many originals of his own. This one of the coolest things an artist could do, Merry Christmahanakwanzika.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop, Rap, Videos | Earl Sweatshirt – Chum (Explicit) [Video]

Posted by on December 4, 2012

Nothing better than hearing everyone’s favorite large lipped Samoan rapper(Actually, I think he’s the only one.) Earl’s progression as an artist is what’s most impressive about this for me. I enjoyed Chum when it came out, it had a dark, errie feel, much like Earl’s previous works. The video matches that eerie, dark feel to a tee. The whole thing is filmed in black and white, which is becoming overused, but nevertheless Earl shines in the dark on this one. Check out the video above, and download the track on iTunes if you’re really feeling it.

21-year old NY native, Bramzwig, breaks FNT soil with an emotional new track, “Young Gun”.  One of the most difficult things growing up is facing the unfortunate reality when we lose a close friend, a classmate, or a family member.  Bramzwig dedicates his newest record to two of his high school classmates that were lost within the last two months.

Kendrick is on cruise control right now.  Collecting 241,000 in week 1 album sales, he takes four minutes to reflect on GKMC and share some kind words for his peanut gallery.  In case you missed Shyne lash out against K. Dot on Twitter last week, I’ll sum it up for you.

Shyne tweets: “u caught up in the hype. That album is aight! Lyrics kool, beats trash! I mean trash!”  “Kendric Lamar has enormous potential! Gkmc is trash! Still!”

TDE label mate, ScHoolboy Q chimes in tweeting: “We all know @OriginalSHyne AIN’T EATIN!!!!! N*ggaH ain’t Had a Hot verse since 01″

Shyne responds by tweeting: “F%%# that tight jeans wear slut@kendricklamar emotional”

K.Dot speaks during interview: “It’s really no response [to him]. I’m not a sensitive guy, so that’s his opinion. Can’t stop what the world thinks, so yeah, that’s him.” K.Dot raps: “I pray to God this beat is good enough for Shyne, If not J. Cole your shit is trash, But at least my opinion just made everyone laugh”
