Hip-Hop | Gerald Walker ft. XV, Phil Ade & Skeme- 87 Corvette Wishes

Posted by on April 16, 2012

Southern rap tries to throw literally every knick and knack into one song…which is suitable for people with ADD, but I hate it. However, this song is super chill and changes its flow with each new rapper ergo perfect for chill ADD people. Don’t expect this to be playing late night at a fraternity, just lean back and relax. Yuh.

Hip-Hop | XV ft. Freddie High – Now Let’s Go In(Prod. Awesome Sound)

Posted by on April 2, 2012

There’s nothing to bring me out of my Monday blues like some hot new Vizzy. A bit of an electric type beat from one of Donovan Johnson’s go to producers, The Awesome Sound. Nobody can jump on a beat and do what XV does to it, he has a unique way of changing anything he gets on. I’m not a HUGE fan of Freddie High’s verse, because it’s so tough to follow someone who kills everything like XV, but Vizzy’s verse makes this track a huge hit in my book.

Hip-Hop, Rap, Videos | XV, DMX ft. MGK, Kid Ink

XV gives us a visual treatment for his take on Drake’s “The Motto”.  Keeping it real for his Squarians while on his “Midwest State of Mind” tour, Vizzy delivers 7 traits of L7 (make an “L” and a “7” with your hands, flip them and put them together, you’ve got a square– you’re a Squarian).

DMX goes bonkers on this beat, emphasizing the fact he stays gangsta in the club, swaying to the beat.  Recruiting Bad Boy’s hard spitting white boy, MGK, who I think was star struck by the fact his all time favorite Ruff Rider had put him on a track.  This track will likely be on DMX’s upcoming project, Undisputed.  

Kid Ink keeps pumping out the new free music as his recent track, “Time Of My Life”, off his debut album Up & Away keeps crawling up the iTunes charts.  Doing what he does best, The Alumni takes Kirko Bangz track “Drank In My Cup” and flips it to be more environmentally sustainable, if you know what I mean.  



Hip-Hop, RnB | Bei Maejor, XV

Posted by on February 15, 2012

Maejor Maejor brings us a smooth, self produced r&b jam with a feature from the radio hoodlum, Waka Flocka.  Another track off his EP, Upscale, this Grammy nominee is cooking up an impressive project thus far.  If you’re looking for some ear candy to get freaky in the sheets, look to further.

Speaking of the sheets, XV dropped this freestyle over Miguel’s chart topping slow jam.  XV is not necessarily known for slow raps like this, but he nails this beat delivering some sensual rhymes.  Thank God Valentines Day only comes once a year, store this one in your library for 2013.

Freestyle, Hip-Hop | Los, Lola Monroe, Joe Budden, Action Bronson

The youngin’ coming after the crown, Los, recently made a visit to Shade 45’s Toca Tuesday to spit some bars off the top.  This is not the first time I’ve seen Los go bananas off the top, as he has made it a staple of his live shows.  If you haven’t copped one of the mixtapes of the year, go download The Crown Ain’t Safe now.

Los’ girlfriend, Lola Monroe, who recently inked a deal with Taylor Gang gives us a freestyle over Drake and Common’s beef song.  I downloaded Lola’s last mixtape after hearing some features on Los’ tracks and wasn’t overly impressed.  Ironically, I think she sounds similar to Nicki at times, but her self proclamation of “the female Pac” is a bit extreme.

After hearing No Church In The Wild in the trailer for Denzyl’s new flick, Safe House, you start to realize just how incredible the production is on the Watch The Throne project.  Joey B goes in over the 88-Keys x Kanye West x Mike Dean beat, owning it as usual.

Action Bronson hit the booth with Statik Selektah, laying down some fresh new bars for his next collaborated project.  Nothing out of the ordinary, just quality byproduct of an overweight white dude rapping.

Hip-Hop | XV – End Of The World

Posted by on January 3, 2012

IT IS 2012! That means we have 11 months and 21 days to be extra mischievous. I’ve already broken my new years resolutions so I’m not really into being holier than thou the year of 2012. XV killed it in 2011, so I want to see how he goes in 2012. He’s hating on social media in this song, which I get. Maybe 2012 I’ll delete facebook off my iPhone…maybe…ugh..wait…no.

Hip-Hop | XV ft. Betty Trouble – Learn to Fly

Posted by on December 22, 2011

XV is BLOWING UP lately. Just a year ago, no one would of really paid that much attention to all of his releases, but that was a year ago and here we are now. This is chill rap, you’re not going to be dancing like you would to Big Sean’s DANCE. This collaboration with Betty Trouble might be one of XV’s better moves, it offers a range to his song that he couldn’t of conquered by himself. The addition of female vocals adds a certain je ne sais quoi, don’t ya think?
