The Stop

"I spit that uptown-body-rock-rolley-hop, and will a nigga ever shut me down? prolly not. Cause ever since I was a young lad I crushed emcees, kickin' ass takin' names at the trolley stop."

Download it and find out for yourself!

And then she came along...

This post was a bitch to post up mostly because I'm in school, so I have a few limitations on what I can do on the computer. But being the dedicated blogger that I am, I took the time out to bring you this new track.

So Kid Cudi drops a new track, produced entirely by Sharam?...Anyway it's a good track check it out.

Sharam feat. KiD CuDi - She Came Along

Forgive me for the misformed picture...I hate school computers.

Manic Mondays # 31?? - Relationships

Manic monday 31??!! I've missed ALOT.

Damn, This dude has been going strong with these even before my absence. Well, since there's too many tracks I've missed to post up, I'm just gonna post up the most recent one hes sent out. Check it outtt.

" My Goal with Manic Mondays is to cover every possible topic within 52 weeks...with that said I realized that I have yet to do a song about Relationships...This song covers mostly every racial background and every type of female in the world...I'm pretty sure the experiences may vary slightly but over all we can all relate to dealing with one of the many personalities I discussed in this song...the talented Teau Johnson did her thing on this record...and Bobby Bob laced the production end...along with The Red Tape and The Blue Tape myself and Bobby will drop a project around the same period called Positive over Negative...shout out to EVERY website that supports my music...much respect to all of you..."

Last night, at performance at Boston College, Lupe premiered a brief snippet, actually Santos' hook, from the first single from Lasers, "Shining Down".

Wow. There's not even one bar from Lupe in there....but I already love it.

Look at this tracklisting. Wow. From The Wu-Tang Clan, to the new school sensation The Cool Kids. This is hands down the craziest mash up of Hip Hop music and Hip Hop artists I've ever seen so far. The only people their missing, in my opinion, are Lupe, Wale, and Kid Cudi, and maybe NERD, other than that It pretty much has something for everyone. It's a mix of Hip Hop, Pop, Electro, and, and Dance/Dancehall, so its a nice switch up for your music collection. Get at ittt!

Lupe's new plans?

Lupe Fiasco announced via Twitter that his three album project LupEND is being replaced by an album titled “We Are Lasers”. The album will feature only a few guests from his 1st and 15th family, although he did mention the possibility of working with Kid Cudi. Possibly the worst news to come of this is that Lupe still plans on retiring.

Nero - Cherish Every Moment

Probably the last track Nero will be dropping for a little while due to obligations to his team, so cherish every moment of this track.

Rising up.

TreaZon - 9 Steps

[Tracklisting above]

Wow, lately there's been a lot of young cats creepin on the come up including TreaZon, Nero and QuESt. But this time TreaZon is the one in the spot light. I never knew this cat could rhyme so slick. I've heard of him from the other bloggers but I never really gave him my attention until I heard Elevator Music. That sealed the deal for me. And today was his well awaited mixtape release via 2DopeBoyz-Illroots collaboration. The mixtape was produced by the one and only 9th Wonder. Props to TreaZon for doin it big. Check it outtttt.

Get It!

The come back



Fire. Mos Def yall! Cant wait for the release!

What "When Fish Ride Bicycles" sounds like



"Makes me wanna eat a cherry danish"

Some Beautiful Music for the ears.

Luck-One & Dekk - Beautiful Music

1. 80’s Back
2. The Coolax
3. Prince Wit’ a Thousand
4. Could’ve Been Me (feat. Randa Smith)
5. Back At Long Last (feat. Immaculate)
6. Road To Destiny (feat. Immaculate)
7. When I Forget (feat. Nafisaria)

Alright check this out. Lets just say, me and hip hop, havent been doing too well lately. Ive been getting kinda bored of the same artists over and over. Recently I logged only the blog, and came across a certain update from Musical Schizophrenia. Luck-One and Dekk are new to the game, each from a different background except for the fact that the duo is based in Portland, Oregon. Luck-One (the emcee) was apparently locked up for over 5 years. Dekk, on the other had, has a degree in sociology from Oregon U, and has a knack for producing. Never the less, regardless of different backgrounds these two artists come together to make some Beautiful Music for us. So check these cats out. I'm sure we'll be hearing more from them in the future...

Get It!
