Posted by on September 26, 2016

I dont think summer is over just yet! Enjoy the rest of the sunlight on the east coast, head outside, grab your sunglasses, and sit back and enjoy the hot sounds of Shallou! Easily one of the amazing up and coming talents, originating from Chicago, home of some of the best up and comers. I can expect to see big things from Shallou, make sure to checkout the rest of his tunes here: Shallou .

House | Calvin Harris feat. John Newman – Blame (Mike Williams Future Remix)

Posted by on October 18, 2014

I love Oliver Heldens weekly “Heldeep” radio series. The guy is always introducing me to new tunes that I may have missed throughout the week. I’m not a big “Blame” fan but I love what Mike Williams has done here. Very Oliver Heldens like. You can’t blame these up and comers. Everyone wants to re-produce that sound. In the words of every stereotypical DJ, I give this track the top support treatment. Cheers!

Hip-Hop, Videos | Raz Simone – Hometown (Video)

Posted by on April 17, 2013

April 8th Raz Simone released his latest song/video called “Hometown”, the same day as his court date in New York. The new song has a special meaning to Raz because of events occurring in his life recently. As he’s known to do Raz uses this video as an informal letter to his fans about what he’s been going through. To hear more of Raz’s story check out his recently released solo debut EP “Solomon Samuel Simone”, available for free download here.

I am a huge supporter of the up and coming hip-hop scene in Seattle. It was produced people like Mackelmore and Ryan Lewis, The Blue Scholars, and Grieves. It is also home to up and comers like Sam Lachow, Raz, Gift Uh Gab, and many, many others. Check out the video above and don’t sleep on Raz.

Hip-Hop | Mac Miller – America (Ft. Casey Veggies & Joey Bada$$) [Official Video]

Posted by on July 5, 2012

Mac gives us some fitting visuals for the 4th of July. America, which was one of my favorites off Macadelic, features Mac and two of Hip-Hop’s notable up and comers in Casey Veggies and Joey Bada$$. Everything about this song is on point: the verses, the chopped chorus, the visuals. Props to Mac and the illroots team on the video.

Hip-Hop | Spenzo – Ova

Posted by on May 29, 2012

Chicago’s rap game is top notch. With big names like Chief Keef, Chance the Rapper, Kembe X, Lil Reese, and Lil Durk, Chicago is building some of the most promising new up and comers. What we have here is a brand new video from 16 year old, Spenzo. Absolutely murdering this beat, Spenzo shows off his phenomenal flow and nice word play. If this is any indicator of what to expect from this yungin, don’t be surprised if he’s the next Chicago rapper to blow up. Video shot by DGainzBeats.

Hip-Hop | What’s in Dshaq’s Tape Deck Vol.2

Posted by on May 14, 2012

For all you Hip-Hop people, I’m back with a brand new edition. This is to give you the latest up and comers who have got me playing their stuff 24/7, or something like that. Last time involved some A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, Phony Ppl, Logic, G-Eazy, Danny Brown, and Skizzy Mars, but I’m back with 5 different artists for your listening pleasure. Without further ado, let’s begin.

1) Chance The Rapper

Chance The Rapper has been on repeat since hearing his 10Day mixtape. Going in on various types of beats, Chance shows his versatility throughout the whole tape and combined together, it makes for one of the best mixtapes of 2012. With a unique voice and a sharp wit, Chance has a style so incomparable to anyone today, which is part of the appeal. Don’t sleep on Chance, he’s gonna be big!

2) Chief Keef

Chief Keef is a touchy subject for most people. A love-hate relationship is a great way to describe him with people. To me, Keef makes some good stuff. Now I know what you’re thinking, “A white kid loves wildin’ out to Chief Keef and his trap musik?”. The answer to that question is, YES, HELL YES I DO. He may not be the best technical rapper, but god does he know how to make some jams, which I guess could be attributed to Young Chop’s success, but nonetheless its awesome. Grab his latest mixtape, and make sure to download 3HUNNA. Next time you’re at a party, throw on some Chief Keef and get crazy.

3) Meek Mill

Okay, so Meek Mill may not be an up and comer, but wow did that Dreamchasers 2 mixtape totally blow my mind. The beats on that thing, in particular the “Amen” one, only made him sound that much better on it. I’m just a fan of everything he does, especially choosing to sign with Rick Ross. After a mixtape like this and an album due out in the Summer, this MMG product is on his way to making an even big name for himself.
