The Enigmatic NYC producer Le Youth pairs a glitzy visual -complete with 90s glam models- with his ‘Dance With Me’ single. The tune is focused around a disparaging sample from “No Scrubs” by the legendary R&B group TLC. What’s interesting about this tune is that the sample got chopped up and flipped into an inviting message void of all hater-ish vibes. No money? No problems, lets dance. Still living with the rents? Don’t pay your child support? Forget all that mess, get out on the dance floor and bring it! Dominique Young swoops in at the end and sows it all up with her up-dated version of a Left-Eye verse.

Watch for ‘Dance With Me’ to drop on Feb 11th via Ultra Music. In the meantime check out the official remix by TWRK .

Hip-Hop, Rap | GoldLink – Creep

Posted by on October 24, 2013


It’s been a minute (or three) since we’ve last seen GoldLink. The VA resident tore the internet down with his Kaytranada remix of “On&On”, but has since been quiet, plotting his next move. It appears that the next move has been made, and in the wake of the new TLC album and movie, GoldLink has unleashed a smashing remix of hit song, “Creep”.

This young emcee has a knack for calling out those who wronged or challenged him, and it seems that “Creep” is a reconciliation of just about every mishap relationship he’s had over the past few years.

The soulful melody, and old-school vibe is a bit of a different style for GoldLink, but he manages to hold his own and pay the necessary respect within the song. Enjoy and download for free below, and be sure to follow GoldLink on twitter to keep up.

Hip-Hop, Rap | Sam Lachow – 80 Bars Pt. 2

Posted by on July 13, 2013

Oh, where to begin…Well, how about with GZA, because that’s exactly where Sam started. Then on to Lil’ Keke, Kanye, Keak Da Sneak, Nelly, and finally TLC. Blending all these instrumentals together flawlessly, Lachow shows off his versatility as well as command of delivery. Seattle born and raised, Sam has no qualms with showing pride for The Town; the whole video is shot throughout the city and displays Sam and company clowning around. And, that’s really what this release was about, after the slowed-down introspective sounds of Sam’s previous release, “King Lear“, this was a fun way to bounce back and show that the fun-loving kid was still having a great time making music.

Sam has just finished up his Midwest/Northwest tour and is now back at it in the studio. There is without a doubt plenty more to be heard, and in fact “80 Bars Pt. 3” will release as soon as Lachow reaches 10k followers on Twitter. What are you waiting for? Go follow him, I need some new music!

Hip-Hop | J. Cole — Crooked Smile (feat. TLC)

Posted by on June 3, 2013

J.Cole-Crooked-SmileThis is the one I’ve been eagerly anticipating, and boy was that with good reason. After dropping a b-side, “Niggaz Know”, over the weekend, Cole lets go of the second single, featuring none other than the two remaining members of TLC. In a message about the song Cole said that he’s kept his features on Born Sinner extremely limited, just getting singers (there are no rap features) to do what he loves them for—which is exactly what you get with TLC’s presence on this track. I said it before, and I’ll say it again, Cole just might out-do Kanye with this one. Not in regards to sales, obviously—but as far as content, this is sounding way more like Kanye’s College Dropout than anything I’ve heard since. Cole has that honesty and ability to articulate everyman struggles in a way that not too many rappers have mastered since young ‘Ye. It remains to be seen, but do yourself a favor and get this track while you wait.
