Last week I introduced ya’ll to Raz Simone, the MC from Seattle who signed to 300, a new label headed by Lyor Cohen, and backed by Google, with his track “Sometimes I Don’t” featuring Sam Lachow. This week his management hit me with his latest single “Don’t Shine,”  off his upcoming album Cognitive Dissonance: Part One, where Raz spits on his environment and where he grew up, and just like its title, it’s not bright. One thing’s for certain, if Raz keeps it up, his future will be. I’m all about real hip hop, and rap records with substance, and musicality, Raz’s talent embodies all of that. This is a must listen and a must download!

Electro-House | Mathy Muso – Blue Balls

Posted by on September 27, 2012

There is a funny story behind the name of this track. Mathy uploaded a clip a few days ago, the clip was all intro and build up with no drop. I knew that before hand, but made a joke how I basically had blue balls because of all the build up and no release…haha. Mathy decided to finish the track and name it “Blue Balls” in honor. Those of you who don’t know what it is, let Google be your friend. I warn you not to search in images as on my search for a picture for this post I have seen things that cannot be unseen, and it really is not what you would expect. Some pictures involved hospitals and guts so to speak, completely changing my reality of the understanding of how bad it can be. Anyways, this turned out to be an awesome Electro-House track.

There comes a time and place for every successful artist to break into the iTunes market.  100k FB fans, 45k Twitter followers, three mixtapes, and one free EP later, the very deserving Hoodie Allen releases the first single off his upcoming EP, All American, due out April 10th with an official iTunes release.

“So this is something completely new for me. I’ve built most of my following online based around 2 ideas –1. free mixtapes and 2. creative use of sampling. With this new project, I’ve worked really hard to expand upon the sound that my fans love while actually creating all the songs from scratch.” – Hoodie Allen

After listening to this new single and watching the video, it’s evident that Hoodie’s “No Interruption” promise runs deeper than his relationships.  Locking himself in the studio, this completely original track features production from RJF and WNDRBRD, the whitty rhymes we’re used to, and one heck of a hook.  It sounds like someone has been taking vocal lessons… #AllAmerican

Purchase on iTunes: Hoodie Allen – No Interruption (Prod. by RJF and WNDRBRD)

Below is another mix Brenton Duvall released earlier this week of Hoodie’s “Moon Bounce” off Leap Year.  Take this one for free after you buy “No Interruptions”.
