Hip-Hop | Maino – Just Watch (Prod. Reefa & Myles.William)

Posted by on November 26, 2013


Real talk, Maino is one of my favorite rappers, you probably don’t hear that often, but his album If Tomorrow Comes is one of the rawest albums that got me through some tough times a few years back. With that said, if you didn’t know by now, or you don’t follow today’s hip-hop scene, Atlanta rapper Trinidad James while in my city talked smack about New York rappers, and that didn’t sit well for a lot of these NYC rappers. Maino took matters into his own hands and recorded “Just Watch” taking shots at Trinidad, over a Reefa and Myles.William production. Do you guys think Mr. James is going to respond? Let me know, this is a must listen and a must download!

Events | Black & Gold Party: UZ, K Theory, & Vital Riots @ The Graduate, Saturday 11/9/13

Posted by on November 7, 2013


Big things coming to San Luis Obispo, CA this Saturday (09/NOV) – come out and see one of the original trap legends UZ tear up The Graduate in downtown SLO; and for those of you who haven’t had the distinct pleasure of going absolutely crazy to one of his tracks, this event is definitely a good place to start. UZ began posting on Soundcloud last year, and eventually got picked up by Jeffree’s, a sublabel of Mad Decent, to put out his “Trap Sh*t” series. All of the records in that installment are quality, and since then, the mystery man’s thrown down numerous other bangers under the likes of Mau5trap, BNR, Ultra, Owsla, and the rest: definitely a show you don’t want to miss. Get your tickets HERE.

Albums, Electronic, Mashups, Mix | The Hood Internet – Trillwave 3

Posted by on August 14, 2013

Ahhhhhhh could not be more excited to share the latest release from The Hood Internet. So they’ve got this thing called Trillwave, which is basically a seamless, sensual, and poetic synthesis of popular hip hop vocals over chill, indie instrumental counterparts that make you wonder, Why weren’t these jams paired up before…? And the third installment of Trillwaves does not disappoint. MISHKA really hit the nail on the head by describing Trillwave as the type of mixtape for “when you have to entertain a mixed crowd, or if you need to take a long drive with someone who doesn’t worship at a temple for 808s for church bells.” And, in accordance with the rising trend, Trillwave 3 features quite a few subtle tributes to the sweet and sexy R&B of the 90’s. Oh, radical baby.

You can, and absolutely should, download the previous Trillwaves straight from The Hood Internet’s website here. And catch the tracklist after the break, especially my favorite pairings including Kanye West vs Daft Punk, Miguel vs RL Grime and Kendrick, Drake, and Giraffage.
