4 for Fall

October 24, 2014


The amount of new rap music that drops nowadays that I actually like is fairly minimal. But somehow four songs I want to listen to on repeat came out this week. Check out my favorite of the four first, “Live From the Villa” produced by A Villa and featuring Action Bronson, Roc Marciano, and Willie the Kid. So hard. And below that is some dope new shit by Mac Miller, Drake, and Freddie Gibbs and Madlib featuring Action Bronson, Ransom, and Joey Bada$$. LOL at Mac pushing the black Odyssey in the art for his song, that’s my whip!




Roc and Bam Bam

October 10, 2014


I saw my two favorite rappers alive perform last Friday night—Action Bronson and Roc Marciano—and got to hang out with them too. Read all about it HERE. And below, check the new Party Supplies and Action Bronson song that they debuted at the concert, it’s fresh.

Amadei Porcelana

October 10, 2014

This kid Retch is ill with it. I loved his last project with producer Thelonious Martin Polo Sporting Goods, and this new joint is raw as fuck. Love the video, too. Let’s go Retch!

Keep It 100

October 10, 2014

Every once in a while, I hear a beat that makes me want to hit the rewind button a thousand times in a row. This is one of them. Twist up to this, shit is crazy. Trademark da Skydiver “Keep it 100.”

Staples Skills

September 26, 2014

When we did our 13 for 13 end of the year list on NahRight last December, I included Vince Staples as one of the 13 rappers to watch for in 2014. And so far, he’s making me look good for including him! Dude got a huge feature on Common’s single “Kingdom” (which just got remixed with an ill Jay Electronica verse tagged on at the end), and he’s quickly becoming one of the most buzzed about rappers in the game. Following his show in NYC earlier this week, Vince paid a visit to Sway in the Morning, and was asked to spit a freestyle. And whoa, did he kill it. Straight off the head shit, too. So dope. Peep above, and then check out the “Kingdom (Remix)” below.

Dicky Freak

September 19, 2014

I’ve been hearing about this dude Lil Dicky for a while, but nothing really struck me until one of my co-workers showed me this video earlier today. Shit is off the hook. His ability to bring the story and conversations in his verses to life in the video is amazing. Mad funny and clever and just a great watch overall. Not the type of shit I would thump in my whip, but I give him nuff props for this. Enjoy.

Butterfly Effect

September 19, 2014

It looks as though The Underachievers and Flatbush Zombies have teamed up to form a supergroup called Clockwork Indigo. Their first release “Butterfly Effect” bangs. Check it out.

Kendrick Crack

September 14, 2014

According to producer Flying Lotus, Kendrick Lamar wanted this song to live on his upcoming album. I can see why, this shit is next level. But it sounds like FlyLo’s saving this one for his own project. Oh well, as long as we get to hear it, that’s fine with me. Give Kendrick’s latest gem “Never Catch Me” a listen above.

Rap Diablo

September 14, 2014

I like this Mac Miller track. It’s off his latest project Faces, and features a pretty ill jazz sample. I’m continuously impressed by Mac’s production, dude is quietly one of the nicest young rapping producers behind the boards, and this is more proof. Video is dope too. Good stuff, Mac.

Norm & Sandler

September 4, 2014

I’ve been catching up on a bunch of podcast episodes I missed these past few months, and I just listened to this Norm Macdonald interview with his SNL pal Adam Sandler yesterday which is great. It’s a fun hour of them reminiscing and popping shit together like only old friends can do. Watch the video above of the full interview above (starts about 11:00 in after the first break), or download the podcast here and give it a listen. Good stuff for peeps like me who grew up watching Norm and Sandler on SNL and in movies. These guys are living legends to me.
