One of the main reasons I decided to write a review of Donnis’ mixtape Diary of an ATL Brave is because of the opening track “The Beginning”. So before I get into his overall positives and negatives I wanted to talk about this song.
This is my first review of a DJ so any commentary (good or bad) would be much appreciated. I am reviewing a mixtape from a young producer out of the Boston area named Teddy Roxpin (play on the teddy bear “Teddy Ruxpin”). He has worked with artists such as Fokis & Punchlyne, The Camp, M-Dot […]
I’ve been sitting on this for a while, and I think you guys are really gonna like it. Hanif Ta-Nehisi, known as Luck-One, started rhyming back in the late 90′s and soon after started Seventh Science rap collective. Right as they were about to drop their first release, Ta-Nehisi was arrested and sentenced to 6 […]
1st Class is probably the newest group we’ve blogged about so far, this is their first production together ever. You definitely haven’t heard of them. Yet. Coming out of the Bay Area, Salt Lake City, and Boulder, CO, 1st Class is made up of emcees Mr. Smith and Sick Sense, and producer Skinwalker. I got […]
Coming off a very dark and heavy first album, Donny Goines goes the opposite direction in almost every way for his sophomore release, The Breakfast Club. Minutes After Midnight had to be bought, TBC is available as a free download; MAM was dark and straight off the street, TBC is diverse, MAM had minimal features, […]
So I know this is a little old (cough cough – a year old) but it’s just too good to not be posted. To our credit, Da Wh@t didn’t quite exist when this dropped. Children of God is also the newest album Hasan Salaam has released, so this is what you’re gonna get.
When talking about the new mixtape, Wale called it “a rapping tape.” He said that his early mixtapes were just a young him trying to get heard, Mixtape About Nothing was proving he could do a concept tape and 100 Miles and Runnin’ was him being a little crazy. Back to the Feature is by […]
So, the long awaited (at least by me) album The Ecstatic from Mos Def just dropped yesterday. It’s a lot shorter than a lot of previous stuff, but a knockout like always. Mos Def, who recently called out H.O.V.A. and Weezy for their “Greatest Rapper in the World” self-titles, comes with one of his most […]
For my next review I will be talking about Big Sean’s new mixtape UKNOWBIGSEAN Finally Famous Vol. 2. At the request of my man BP, I will be trying something different; I am going to review the album as a whole instead of track by track. I will rate the lyrics, flow, beats, and overall […]
Some of you readers may not know this, but I am about to finish up my freshman year at Stanford. Through the course of the year I’ve realized that our class has a lot of musical talent. There’s one trio in particular, Fear & Fancy that’s formed in this year and shared their music with […]
