Yo yo yo!! What it is everybody? I’m back with another segment with some hot new music for y’all. Let’s check them out!!
1st up is Grand Hustle artist B.o.B. His latest mixtape EPIC, which stands for ‘Every Play Is Crucial,’ was released Nov. 28th. Overall it’s a pretty good mixtape. I’m not a hardcore B.o.B. fan but I do like some of his music. His flow along with his voice is unique to me. I think this is worth a listen.
Suggested Tracks: Epic ft. Playboy Tre & Meek Mill, Boom Bap ft. T.I. & Mos Def, Welcome to the Jungle
Next we have Young Money rapper Tyga. He just dropped his new mixtape #BitchImTheShit last night at midnight. This mixtape is basically him going in over some club type beats, which works rather well with his word flow. He also introduces his Last King artist Honey Cocaine. This is mos def worth a listen & dL.
Suggested Tracks: B**ch Better Have My Money ft. YG & Kurupt, In This Thing, F**k With You
Last we have the Shooter himself, Swagga Boy Los. His new mixtape ‘The Crown Ain’t Safe’ was released earlier today. If you don’t know who this is, then you better find out. His lyricism and metaphors are just crazy. However, the production on most of the tracks is pretty mediocre. He really needs to find some better beats. Take a listen anyway because it’s worth it for the lyrics.
Suggested Tracks: King Los ft. Lola Monroe, What’s Good, Get It ft. XV, Vintage Rolls Royce Interior
Check out Lupe’s latest video for his song ‘I Don’t Wanna Care’ from his 3-time Grammy nominated album LASERS. The video is live!! Be sure to download his mixtape Friend of the People now.
Check out Luda’s latest video w/ Waka Flocka ‘Rich & Flexin’ from his 1.21 Gigawatts mixtape. Download it now if you haven’t yet!!
Check out Cleveland, Ohio representative Machine Gun Kelly w/ Waka Flocka in his latest video for ‘Wild Boy’. Check out his latest mixtape ‘Rage Pack’ too. I’ll post the link below. Enjoy!
Yurp! What’s good everybody? I know it’s been awhile since I’ve done this segment. I’ve just been hella busy to sit and actually listen to some mixtapes. Buuuut I’m back and I got some that you might like so check it out!
First up we have G.O.O.D. Music artist Kid Cudi. His mixtape ‘Rap Hard’, which dropped Nov. 13, is actually an unreleased demo from 2001. The lyrical content has more of an old school ’90s rap feel to it. The beats are pretty nice too. It’s kind of different from his music today, but if you like Kid Cudi now, then I recommend you check this out.
Suggested Tracks: Pimpin, I’m That, Get Ya Mind Correct
Next we have G-Unit soldier Lloyd Banks’ mixtape ‘Cold Corner 2’ which dropped Nov. 8. Honestly I hadn’t really heard any of his music lately. Last song I heard w/ Banks was Start It Up. I thought he had fell off a little bit, but after hearing this I think he still got it. He just been lowkey to me I guess haha. I think it’s worth a listen, maybe a dL too.
Suggested Tracks: 123 Grind ft. Prodigy, Make It Stack ft. ASAP Rocky, Keep Your Cool
Last we have Chicago native Yung Berg. Again, he was another dude I hadn’t really heard anything from lately. His latest mixtape ‘Reality Check’ which dropped Nov. 11 is pretty nice though. He’s talking about some real personal stuff he’s went through in the recent past. Whoever this Mia Rey girl is on some of the hooks/choruses is nice with the vocals. Y’all should listen to it for real.
Suggested Tracks: Heart of the City ft. Mia Rey, Young Ni**a Mistakes ft. Young Chu, Real Life
Canada has no end when it comes to talent. Check out upcoming rap/hip hop artist Tory Lanez in his latest music video “Swave Man”. Get down with the Swavey movement!
If you love r&b, then you really need to check out upcoming artist Siergio’s mixtape ‘Underneath The Covers’. Ladies you might feel some type of way afterwards haha! Includes a cover to Drake’s ‘Marvin’s Room’, Wale’s ‘Lotus Flower Bomb’, and Chris Brown’s ‘Wet The Bed.’ Click on the link below to listen, download, and share with any and everybody.

Yurp!! What’s good people? I’m back for the 2nd installment of Monday Mixtape Madness. This week I’m only doing two because I couldn’t find an extra one that I liked for real. But yeah, let’s check ’em out!
1st we got Bow Wow with his newest mixtape “I’m Better Than You” which dropped Sept. 27. I gotta admit, dude has stepped his game up. Ever since coming to Cash money in ’09, he has been able to do his music the way he wants to, just as it should be. The one thing that gets me though is how he lets the beat ride out for like a minute in some songs. C’mon Bow, add another verse, get a feature, talk or something! Haha nah but other than that, the mixtape was straight. I feel like he really is Underrated.
Heaven, Mary Jane, Lame ft. Jermaine Dupri, 70 Bars & No Hook
Next we have a new artist (well she new to me anyway), female rapper Iggy Azalea. Her mixtape “Ignorant Art” dropped Sept. 28. I just listened to this today. At first I didn’t know what to think. After awhile I was starting to feel it. Her beats are raw & edgy, and her flow is kinda sick. I’m not sure it fits her voice though, and her lyricism could use a little work. I believe she has some potential.
Backseat, Treasure Island, Drop That
What’s up music lovers?! This is a new section I done came up with called Monday Mixtape Madness (as you can see haha). This is how it works: every Monday I’m gonna do a short review of 3 mixtapes that have came out in the past week. Just to be clear, these will be my personal opinions so please don’t catch feelings if you disagree with me alright? Alright, cool. Let’s get started!
1st we have upcoming female r&b artist Jasmine Villegas. Her mixtape, “S(he) Be(Lie)ve(d)” (see the play on words there), was released Sept. 22. It’s pretty much a compilation of mixed emotions dealing with the male species (surprise! lol jp). Personally I think the whole mixtape is hot. She has a very melodious voice. Put that with some nice lyrics and a hot beat and pow! You have a guaranteed banger. I’ll post the link to her website so you can hear it for yourself.
So Silly ft. Tyga, Jealous, Just A Friend, Angel, Masquerade
Next up: Taylor Gang’s Chevy Woods featuring Wiz Khalifa. “The Cookout”, which dropped Sept. 24, is exactly what you would bump… well, at a cookout haha. Real mellow. Something to vibe to. Despite 9 of the 11 songs featuring Wiz, Chevy holds his own. The lyrical content is classic TGOD ish. If you’re not already a fan of the style then it might be a little hard to get into it. Otherwise light one up, grab a plate and just chill.
Napkins, The Cool, Down, Cassette, Aunts N Uncles
Last one of the day: Cali’s jerkin/rapping group The Ranger$. Members Day Day, Julian & Langston dropped “That Mixtape” earlier today. After listening to this, you won’t think of them as just dancers. They clearly show off their lyrical skills on this joint. They also have some tracks for the ladies. Don’t worry though devoted fans; they still have some bangers you can rock to in the club or at a house party.
Take A Bow, She Coo With That, We In Here ft. Lil Twist, She All On Me, Come On Baby
Alright Trey’s Angels & Trigga fans, it’s almost about that time. One of R&B’s leading male artists is hitting hard with not one, but TWO (count ’em lol) new mixtape projects, both set to be released on 11-1-11.
First up is Anticipation 2, the sequel to part 1 which he dropped back in the summer of ’09. Honestly, I felt like that should have been a legit label release. It had the potential to be a classic R.Kelly-like r&b album in my opinion. But Songz provided it for free to his faithful fans. If there are any songs like “Famous”, “Infidelity” and “You Belong to Me” on Anticipation 2, then it should definitely be worth a download.
Next we have #LemmeHolDatBeat2, the 2nd part of his rap based mixtape which dropped in November of last year. I can see why he calls himself the Instrumental Killa. Lil Wayne’s “Right Above It” freestyle with Fabolous- killed it. “SK Shit”- killed it. Freestyle to Nas’ “Hate Me Now”- murdered it. Lately he has released freestyles to Lil Wayne’s “She Will” track off the Carter IV and Yeezy & Hov’s “Niggas In Paris” track off Watch the Throne. Don’t know if they’re going to be on the mixtape but you should check em out anyway.
I’m going to provide the links to Anticipation & #LemmeHolDatBeat just to hold you over til 11-1-11. For now, just anticipate the beat.
