Yep, you’re right. I only paid attention to this because of the name. On the flip, its actually a fairly dope instrumental hip-hop project.
Jump up drum-n-bass legend Odi recently moved to North Carolina from NYC. To help celebrate the move, he’s posted a few new mixes. Most were his typical dnb ish, but this caught my attention because it is filled with 90s hip-hop, house, and techno. Some serious gems in this mix. Oh yea, and it opens w/ PM Dawn!
I’m trying to keep from posting everything that HG puts out, but I had to post this. This might be the best piece of work I’ve heard from Grey in the pasts few years. It is a heartfelt narrative that I think is accessible to every listener. Furthermore, it doesn’t sound whiny like Grey’s diatribes can come off as. Dude needs to make more music of this caliber.
Freddie Bunz just dropped this remix of Pretty Lights’s “We Must Go On” earlier this week. This guy is quickly growing into a beast. Dude definitely out-shined his mentor CRayz Walz on that Blvck Rosaries track. Aiight man, you have my attention …
If you actually follow MHC, you know that boom-bap hip-hop does very little for me. This, however, is actually fairly dope. Nerd Ferg is an emcee that is willing to be truly introspective and funny but also has a command of language. The obvious comparison to draw is to Donald Glover, but I don’t want to short dude that quickly. “Lesbi Honest” is my jam.
If you cop 1 #Naptown album in the near future, this would be my vote.
Coming soon from DJ Absolut.
BBU keeps rolling out singles in preparation for their album. This one features Chicago hero GLC.
Yelawolf links up with the young British songwriter on the lead single from the latter’s upcoming Slumdon Bridge EP.
New music from Odd Future ex patriot Casey Veggies. I must say that I’m feeling pretty fuckin’ awesome right now.
2011 was a good year for the west coast w/ Kendrick Lamar, Odd Future, and Kreayshawn. I hope this year is as equally kind to the left.
