[Proverb.] the poet

November 27, 2009 by


As I’m sure you’ve realized by now we like to provide you with a mix of music you know and love, and random kids you’ve never heard about, but will come to love. [Proverb.] the poet is a freshman at NYU who’s bringing it with a soulful, down to earth, west coast sound.

Charles Hamilton is Back

November 23, 2009 by


I dont know how many people noticed but after flooding the internet with music on a consistent basis, Charles Hamilton essentially “disappeared” following a series of public relation issues.  After 6 months of no music, no twitter, no interviews, he is now back! When he focuses on the music he puts out some pretty dope […]

Da What Interview with Clif Soulo

November 20, 2009 by


 Hopefully everyone downloaded and listened to Clif’s project, Forever Be Hip-Hop, that I posted a week or two ago.  Clif was nice enough to answer some questions for us here at Da What.  This was my first interview but I tried to think of questions that gave you a better idea of who Clif […]

Who’s Slaughter Rico?

November 6, 2009 by


The internet has really changed the game. You can be any guy off the streets and get yourself on MySpace and YouTube and people will start to know your name if you’re good. You don’t necessarily need a record label to be known. Even with the internet, though, there’s a lot of talent out there […]

Donnis – Diary of an ATL Brave Mixtape Review

November 4, 2009 by


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.


November 3, 2009 by


I haven’t listened to it yet but Wiz Khalifa comes with consistent “fiyahhh”, so I’m gonna go ahead and post his most recent mixtape “Burn After Rolling”. Update: Another good mixtape from Wiz Khalifa, every song slaps except “If I were a lame”. Wiz needs to stay away from the autotune.
