Danny Brown, Childish Gambino, Schoolboy Q in Prospect Park Freestyle

“Ain’t nobody sober” – Childish Gambino. Nothing better than a late night, intoxicated impromptu freestyle from these three. Schoolboy Q. Childish Gambino, and Danny Brown invaded Brooklyn’s Prospect Park about 3 months ago, giving us an informal cypher freestyle. Now we finally get to see it for ourselves. Enjoy!

Keeping the New Music Flowing: Mac Miller ft Schoolboy Q, PlaneCarBoat.

Mac Miller randomly dropped a new track titled PlanCarBoat that features TDE’s Schoolboy Q, produced by Larry Dollaz from his twitter page ( @macmiller). The song has an airy, space sound, but none the less – DOPE! – to sum it up in one word. Keep the new music flowing!

“Another Black Girl Lost” – Nas

Nas does spectacular work when he speaks on the empowerment of people. He encourages particularly young black women in his new single “Another Black Girl Lost” to not let dumb decisions over a man ruin the rest of their lives as well as the life of another wedlock child.

This single is going to be featured on his upcoming solo album titled Life Is Good, which is his first album in four years and also to be his final album under Deaf Jam Records. He had some heavy hitting producers in the creative process of this album, including Dr. Dre, Swizz Beatz, Alex Da Kid, Q-Tip, Heavy D,  Big K.R.I.T, Just Blaze, Bangladesh, just to name a few. Take a listen.

“Nasty” is another featured single thats was previously released on August 9, 2011 on iTunes. He shows some favoritism to the ’90s era, which is the kind of vibe this song has.  If you missed it, click below to listen.

“The Don”- 3:02 mins long with the hook shouting “Nas the Don, Inner New York City”, produced by the late Heavy D,  Da Internz, and Salaam Remi has been released on iTunes since April 3,2012.

Stalley drops his new mixtape, “Savage Journey To The American Dream”

Highly anticipated and its finally here!! Stalley dropped another mixtape titled Savage Journey To The American Dream, known as #SJTTAD on twitter. His previous mixtape, Lincoln Way Nights (Intelligent Trunk Music),  showed us his variety in vocabulary making his rhymes clear, clean and connectable, his amazing taste in beats, and love of instrumentals. Its exciting to finally hear an artist with a combination of lyricism and quality taste in beats, and just when we thought he couldn’t get better, he dropped another one on us. This mixtape shows more variety in sounds, but every song is still relevant to the album title: whether it lies in love, a career, or possession of money, we’re all in one savage journey to reach our own idea of what it is to be living the “American Dream”.

Here are five of what I picked to be the best. The link at the bottom is where you can listen to the full mixtape.

My favorite out of the lineup goes out to “BCGMMG” feat Rick Ross and Meek Mill

“Party Heart”

Ranked another one of my favs, “Cold”

“Home To You”. Ain’t no place like it.

“Petrin Hill Poenies”

“I was underground then, and I’m underground now. Only difference is I ain’t tryna be found”- Stalley

Cartoon & Cereal – Kendrick Lamar (Feat. Gunplay)

Who else besides Kendrick Lamar can take a sort of weird sounding song at first and make it sound so dope? To top it off, he made the perfect collaboration with Gunplay.The title in itself is interesting making you wonder, why is a rap artist talking about cartoons and cereal?

The 6 min and 40 second track is a plethora of play on words. You first hear the bridge with alien-sounding voices explaining how his father lived a life of crime and Kendrick, looking to him as a role- model, followed in the same direction. His father would tell him as he says in the song ” ..don’t be like me, just finish watching cartoons…”  then the bridge continues to say ” which is funny because all I see is Wile E. Coyotes in the room, and I run it.” There is a double meaning to that. One is his father telling him to not pay attention to the violent world of crime he’s involved in – just watch cartoons, but ironically Wile E. Coyote is using bombs, guns, traps, and many other weapons to kill the Road Runner. The second side is Kendrick comparing himself to the Road Runner and other rappers to Wile E. Coyote; being that they are all trying to catch up to him,the Road Runner, but never can.

The bridge sets the stage for the rest of the song which is linked below. Take a listen

Poetic Lyrics & Dope Beats: Kevin Sinatra

I’m big on ( 1.) lyrical content and ( 2.) delivery. What good does an emcee’s word do if the people can’t understand them? Kevin Sinatra poses both qualities. I honestly feel a little late just now discovering his music, but when I find it- I share it!

After looking through a few of his videos on youtube, I came across the five of what I think are his best songs.

“In My Soul” has a short sample in the beginning from Ray Charles’s “I believe” and a portion of Malcolm X’s most famous speeches “Make It Plain”. The song gives us a look into his thoughts, dreams and struggles.

“Hometown”, sampled from Adele’s own original “Hometown Glory”, he represents his roots from the DMV. He touches on a few of his memories growing up and even shows a few famous faces that are also DMV bred.

“Starring the eyes of Medusa” he features female rapper Elle Maxwell, produced by Curtis Tull.

“Letters To You”

“Angel”

If the lyrical content is on point, then an artist can usually make any beat sound dope. He has a mixtape that has already surface titled The Battle For Olympus that you can download on the link below. The next one is expected to drop Spring 2012 entitled My Shiny Suit.
