So yesterday Wiz dropped his new mixtape Taylor Allderdice. This thing has been hyped to fucking death and when this dropped last night it crashed DatPiff and several other servers hosting it. First off the production on this mixtape is killer, Sledgren, Sparky Banks, Big Jerm, Cardo, Lex Luger and a few others and Wiz brings his signature laid back flow. So far O.N.I.F.C. is one of my favorite tracks from the tape. So just download this shit.

When you have an immense amount of music in your library it is easy to download good songs and then lose them in the shuffle. I make it a habit when im browsing my ipod or library to play any song i don’t recognize. This allows me to rediscover many lost gems. Apparently I downloaded this track in december of 2010, but quickly glossed over it as until this weekend i had only played it twice (no idea why). Iron Lyon is a DJ/MC out of NYC who has been involved in turntabilsim since his early teens. This track has a chill breakbeat with equally laid back lyrics and sampling. Download and chill out. I also recomend the full Foundation EP as well as Time Capsule if you like this song.
So my younger brother has really been on point with the recommendations lately and this is the first of a few dope songs he has shown me. Otayo Dubb is a rapper based out of Oakland, CA and this track is a single of his debut solo album. The production is light hearted and has a good vocal sample and an organ/keyboard driven beat. Otayo Dubb’s lyricism shines on this upbeat track. Download this shit!
So Mac dropped this last night via twitter, had it been a weeknight i would have posted it right away, but it was a friday night so… Anyway Mac Miller has been steadily keeping the buzz going for the release of his new album Blue Slide Park. In this song producer Big Jerm throws a nice guitar sample over a bumping party bassline and Mac shows hes not slowing down anytime soon.
This album is from 2007, but i just discovered it and I had to share it because its that good. Exile’s production is perfect for Blu’s rapping, in addition the sampling and turntablism is some of the best i have heard in a long time. Critically acclaimed and widely accepted as an underground rap classic and I definitely agree with those statements. I’m going to feature one of my favorite tracks Blu Colla Worker. Blu’s lyricism shines as he raps about the troubles of being an up and coming star. I highly recommend you download the whole album.
Mac Miller dropped this just an hour ago to celebrate reaching 90o thousand followers on twitter. Over a tight sample and a jazzy syncopated beat Mac shows his lyrical muscle. Remember Blue Slide Park drops November 8, 2011.
Rime Force Most Illin’ is the collaboration between Rob Rush, Luke Sick and DJ Quest. I don’t know much about these guys other than apparently they’re collabing for a project coming soon. If thats true it will be a sick mixtape, album whatever. This song has catchy, upbeat production and some great scratching. Coupled with playful, light hearted lyricism you;ll have a hard time getting this track out of your head. Download. Enjoy. Repeat.
