Summary: I could mix this song on the turntables alllll day.
About Artist: Big Boi is one hald of Outkast and he has recently released a couple awesome remixes of songs from his last album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. Big Boi is from the south as it Big K.R.I.T. (not very famous but has a hard core following and is well respected). UGK (the duo of Bun B and the now deceased Pimp C) are also know as the southern underground kings.
About Song: This song is a mashup of sorts of Gossip (a single off of Big Boi’s last album) and Big Oyster Cult’s ’70s song Godzilla. Big Boi does and awesome job reworking the original rock song into this awesome remix.
Favorite Part:
The rock meets hip hop thing really works in this track.

I love when it cuts out and the vocal just say ‘Godzilla!’ …and I love the electric guitars and the hard bass drum.

Summary: Alright gets get this blog goin again.
About Artist:  This join is a collaboration from compilation mixtape by DJ Whoo Kid, DJ Skee & DJ MLK, called SXEW Vol 1. which was released in early February. The tape is in anticipation of the South By South West music festival. The mixtape has  lots of good, bump in your car, bump in the club songs, mostly existing songs that are hot right now with a little remix twist on them. Hustle Gang is the name of T.I’s crew, to which Iggy Azalea recently signed (Hustle Gang = Grand Hustle basically).  Iggy Azalea is one of my fav’s an happens to be from Australia. Young Dro is also a part of that crew. T.I. is the king of the south and while his commercial peak seems to have past he is still a big name in Hip Hop.
About Song: This song has tags on it (sorry) but even though it’s poor quality it still bangs! This song is an example of one the ‘originals’ that’s on this tape and it’s probably my favorite track from the compilation.
Favorite Part:
Solid beat with awesome verses from T.I and Iggy Azalea.

Summary: I’m having trouble finding time to post but here’s a good banger. Speakers Required!
About Artist: Pusha T is/was one half of the duo the Clipse. While he’s been in the game a looong time he is just now truly embarking on his solo career. 2 Chainz is the ‘from another planet’ all over the radio rapper, and Big Sean is someone who hit the scene around 2009 and has rolled with Kanye on hits like Mercy, Clique and that Marvin and Chardonnay song.
About Song: This is off of Pusha T’s debut album My Name is My Name. I Really like this album and there are 3 or 4 songs I could have posted here. I haven’t liked a big sean verse in a while but I think he has the best verse here. You definitely need speakers to appreciate this song

Favorite Part:
Big Sean’s verse (2:15)

B.o.B – Headband (ft. 2 Chainz)

DOWNLOAD MP3BoB-HeadBandft2Chainz.mp3
Summary: #Summer2013 is a recap of the songs that made the summer of 2013 one of the best ever. B.o.B had a summer hit yay
About Artist: B.o.B might be the most musically talented diverse hip hop artist in the game right now. I’ve lovin him for a long time and while he’s mainly gotten radio play on some of his more popier songs, it was great this summer to hear him blowin it up on the radio in a straight up hip hop track with 2 Chainz. 2 Chainz is from Georgia and while he’s been around forever he’s only recently gotten famous. While not too lyrically inclined his unique style and personality has taken him a long way.
About Song: HeadBand is the first song off of BoB’s highly anticipated third album Underground Luxury, which will be more hip hop focused. The album isn’t close to being released but my hopes are sky high.

Favorite Part: 

I love the beat on this song. It’s just a good song to blast out your car.

Kanye West – Blood on the Leaves #Summer2013

DOWNLOAD MP3 KanyeWest-BloodOnTheLeaves.mp3
Summary: #Summer2013 is a recap of the songs that made the summer of 2013 one of the best ever. Yeezus was one of the great albums of the summer, my favorite track on the album was ‘I’m In It’ posted previously here.
About Artist: Kanye West is my favorite. While he is known mostly for his personality the music he creates is always interesting and often unparalleled. He’s not afraid to try new things and yet somehow consistently creates really great music.
About Song: This is a track off of his sixth studio album ‘Yeezus’ which dropped the same day as J. Cole’s Born Sinner. Kanye said that lot of the Yeezus album was expression frustration and you can definitely here that in this song.

Favorite Part: 

I love the Strange Fruit Sample, and then when the horns drop at 1:08.
The intro is really one of my favorite parts the whole piano and the
“I just need to clear my mind now
It’s been racin’ since the summertime
Now I’m holdin’ down the summer now
And all I want is what I can’t buy now
Cause I ain’t got the money on me right now”
Plus the song just really captures a story and emotion of a breakup like that.

DOWNLOAD MP3 BoB-Missing.mp3
Summary: Hottt off the presses
About Artist: B.o.B is all over this blog, sometimes I feel like I post him too much, but he has really been cranking out some awesome songs through his career. He is from ATL and runs with T.I’s Hustle Gang. While he gained mainstream popularity with pop songs like Nothin On You (ft. Bruno Mars) he can also go hard on the rap beats too.
About Song This song dropped a couple days ago and is in anticipation to his third album Underground Luxury which will be more hip hop focuses
Favorite Part:
The didgeridoo thing in the beat is dope, and I like BoB’s rap about real issues (poverty, corruption etc) and there are a couple lines I like in particular.

“Seems like since we got a black president
Black people stop questioning the government” (0:05)

“For god sakes there’s an all-seeing eye on the back of the dollar, we can’t even trust money
You need to understand who you dealing.. With
These are like modern day villains
These are type of people that would kill a whole village
Build a fucking building.. And say it’s just business
Who you think gave you religion?
Land of the free.. Who you think built it?” (0:35)

“I don’t need a hook but for hooks sake
If I had a hook, I’d make the hook say
“Be a good slave, be a good slave”
(Be a good slave, be a good slave)” (1:24)
