Tito Lopez - Lost Files Of Tito Lopez Reloaded (mixtape)


If K.R.I.T is king of Mississippi then Tito Lopez is the hier to the throne. The Mississippi repper has recently been in the studio with  both Dr. Dre and ATL's Organized Noise. Enough said right? Wrong. I can't say Tito's name withougt mentioning his ability to create an emotional connection with his listeners (ala Drake) but without sounding emo, sweet or corny. If this is the first time you've heard Mr. Tito then your day just got better. If you already have the Lost Files then you already know... This is the remake of some older tracks that got compiled and then got reloaded. *Scratching my head. Oh well, I'm hyped just to post more Tito. 
For the tracklist and download shoot the J.


Mr. J. Medeiros ft. Giannina Ashe - Pale Blue Dot

These days The Cranberry Show camp is riding pretty high. They definitely have the streets talking. The success of their latest album Paranormal Karaoke has caught national attention. In the last month they have been working the promotional circuit hard from Milwaukee to NYC and back. While in NYC they had the chance to hit the studio with a couple legends just before rocking the stage at SOB's. This dynamic duo has accomplished quite a bit in a short amount of time. Word on the street is that they have a few more tricks up their sleeve. The recent release of their video, The Best Week Ever, pretty much sums it up. A couple weeks before they dropped their album Paranormal Karaoke D&M's A'Drego got the chance to link up with them. Hit the jump to see how it all went down.






Rhyme & Reason (Documentary)



Released in 1997  Rhyme & Reason was a study in the world of hip-hop. It's objective was to see why it's as popular as it is today and what the future held.

Jay-Z & Kanye West - Ni**as In Paris [TNT's 2012 NBA All Star Saturday Night Intro] (video)



Oh yes...

Octavion Xcellence - No Cool Points For Dying EP


So I've heard there are no cool points for dying. However, there are cool points for having an 8-bit album cover of lil Mac about to knock the shit out of Soda Popinski. There are also cool points for creating a super dope EP along side Just Plain Ant and Dj Hermski. Octavion X came correct with his new project. S/O to RTF on the premiere.



BBU - bell hooks (album)


Aight so, Mishka and MAD DECENT link to drop BBU's latest project on us. I wanna say that bells hooks if blue fire.  Like Misha's usually do, the tape is different and kinda wierd but in a dope way; It's weird in a good way like when you first meet your sexy third cousin. It blends  dance, hip hop and alot of curse words.  It's mind fucking me right now... Chi don't dance no more... all they do is piss.




Neak ft. NidaNasheeda - Big Dreamer (video)



Neak drops off a very inspirational track Big Dreamer. This will be featured on his upcoming  album entitled Love Greater // The Prequel which is due out 2-28-12.

Joey BADA$$ x Capital Steez - Survival Tactics (video)



These two Brooklyn cats link and get BUSY over a what sounds like a RZA meets Prince Paul joint (Gravediggaz). Thing is when that first Gravediggaz album dropped these two were still just precursors to embryos (sperm). Considering Joey and Cap are still just 17 they are ahead of their class in both maturity and style points. Listen in, they fire shots at the Based God lol. I'm loving the Panda Ski mask as well.

S/O: Vashtie

Scram Jones - Hour Glass (video)



Nature Sound Music drops a visual for the NYC rapper/ producer  Scram Jones. These are the joints that keep this culture breathing. The ones that ask questions and challenge the machine. In other words it's the undeniable truth. Look out for a new album dropping soon.

"And it's more than a metaphor like how my enemies are ppl that I helped before? But why give back? they got what they gave for. Why share the pot when they can always go make more? Why shoot straight when sideways looks so cool? Why play a game when there's no rules, I'm no fool."

The Kickdrums ft. Rockie Fresh & DZ Deathrays - Want My Blood (video)



What do you do when you find washed up blood on the beach? If your Rockie and the Kickdrums you feed it to the people... It get's them going. 

Looks like Rock drove 88 to the East Coast and managed to make some dope genre spanning music. This joint will appear on the Kickdrums upcoming mixtape that will be featuring some more surprising collabos ; MGK & A$AP?! This should be interesting.

Beyond Belief - Breaking Bad vol. 4 (video)



Beyond Belief blesses us with the fourth installment of his weekly Breaking Bad. The entire thing is in house for BB it's all completely written, performed and directed and edited by the 24 yr old spitter. Sullen R&B samples plus a minute and a half of all flow no hook is fine by me.

M.I - The Coldplay Sessions (album)


Last week we featured "Nothing" and judging from the feedback the readers loved it. This week M.i redefines rollin solo with his latest project The Coldplay Sessions. Other than a little digital distribution help from AO and DJ Booth, gmad and a few small features, he took care of this project like it was a baby raised by a pack of wolves. Written, directed produced and anything else that could have gone into this 15 track album was all well done by M.i.

With TCS M.i does an incredible job of revisiting a few old concepts... closure to an old relationship, frustration in an overpopulated game and maxin with Mary Jane. What Sets M.i apart is his melodic delivery clever wordplay and unique sampling. TCS is comfort food for your ears, it's something we can all chill and relate to without over-thinking anything. Strictly just good music. For the tracklist and download shoot that J.


The Audible Doctor X Maticulous - Broken Cup (video)



BBAS affiliate The Audible Doc and Maticulous form to create Audimatic. This second leak off the Maticulous EP is a toast to broken dreams. Why would you toast to broken dreams?! Well while broken dreams can make us feel defeated, they can also act as a catalyst for change. Like a fallen red cup in beer pong for instance. It's easy to think: "Damn, I know that dude missed the shot but he hit the cup and it slid off the table. Now I'm one cup closer to defeat." Don't just get all sad Panda and stay losing. Next time you lay that beer-a-mid down first wipe the beer off the table so the cups don't slide... What I'm sayin is a broken cup can really suck, but depending on your perspective it can also make you think like a champion... Toast to that.


Joyce - Golden Boy



My homie Jah-Sun produced this track from Joyce.  I'm not mad at all..."Soul Music" indeed...

Wax ft. Andy Milonakis - 1983 Old School Chick (prod. Nobody Famous)


In prep for Nobody Famous' new project The Life and Times of Reggie, Wax decided to let loose a previously unreleased track produced by Nobody Famous himself. 


Vincent Vega - Be Careful



No Glitter and ALL Gold...This man is not "fucking around slimeballs"...

Luck-One & Dekk - Beautiful Music Part 2


Every now and then you have a quality album cross your path that you have to stop and take the time to really listen to. Really though... how many top notch albums do you think you let slide out of sight because you didn't want to take the time out of your busy schedule to listen? Especially in todays world of short cuts and drive thru's. Everyone wants the cliff note version to save time. I'm going to do you all a favor and let you know that this new Luck-One & Dekk project is one of those top notch projects. Everyone should stop and smell the roses on this one. The duo managed to intertwine perfect production with introspective vocals that capture your interest from the Introduction. Although all of the tracks are dope and perfectly placed, my favorite joints have to be Sword Or The Pen and Looking Back. They are both self reflecting tracks that are weighted heavy with character. Luck-One & Dekk have definitely taken the time to do things the right way on this project. If you are into quality over quantity you will definitely be into Beautiful Music Part 2



"Me and Dekk are like mortar and brick with a little more swag and metaphorical flip" - Luck-One

G-Eazy ft. Dominique LeJeune - Marilyn


One of the coolest things about G is the fact that he has an undeniable ability to create a unique addicting sound. He always seems to be two steps ahead of the game when it comes to originality. In his new joint Marilyn, which is the first single from his new album, he called on indie New Orleans songstress Dominque LeJeune to assist him with her vocal expertise. The track touches on the ups and downs of an intense relationship from his perspective. The vocal "give and go" from G to Dominique paints a perfect picture through out the track. I would have to say it's a hit. S/O to Interview Magazine on the premiere


S-Mak - The Beginning of All End



S-Mak looks like a boss but sounds more like God's son. His boastful lyrics, speedy delivery, joined by a smooth flow are what make this young rebel in my eyes a lost emperor... make way. If your feelin this visual make sure to cop the mixtape: 20 20. Watch for S-Mak and DJ Skee to colab on his next project #MADMAK set to drop in Spring 2012.

Consequence - Papa John's (video)

Sapient - Stronger Redux


Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis & Tyler The Creator – Rella (video)

e.d.g.e - George Orwell


e.d.g.e drops a new cut that feels like it should be more of a freak me jam then it does an allegorical ode to a sci-fi writer. This hot joint is produced by Madden Miles.

Kid Cudi - Dose Of Dopeness


Damn I'm both glad and completely relieved to get another Cudder joint. I was starting to get the dope shakes. Watch for WZRD to drop the album next week. 


Marcky Goldchain - Vice City Life


It's not hard to tell that Marcky Goldchain has a 90's golden era influence. From the Martin Lawrence intro to the NWA clip in 40oz to the Scottie Pippen reference in Stadium Status. Vice City Life is 13 tracks true hip hop goodness. A great project from beginning to end... keep Marcky Goldchain on your radar because the kid is dope.




Kembe X - Sawbuck (video)



Better late than never but never late is better. Young Kembe X is building a big buzz at a young age (he's only 17). He's been getting attention from tha god Big Ghostface and even the colossal Rap Genius. His introspective lyrics and story telling ability are a breath of fresh air in a overpopulated genre. I'm seeing big things for this Chi-town spitter, here it is, Sawbuck (that's ten dollars buster.)

Gameboi - Emergency (prod. by J57)



Gameboi linked up with BBAS's J57 for his track Emergency.

Gliffics ft. Lenny Harold - Call Me Crazy (video)

I mean from the get we got two five star generals, Mega and Large Professor, on top of that you add Bronson The Chef and and mix in some Roc and Saigon! That's a fuckin recipe right there, some next level outer space leak status dopeness. No wonder its called M.A.R.S. 



Frank Ocean - Thinking About You + (H5C videos)




High Five Collective are a group of visual artists out of LA that point cameras and make some amazing music videos. True taste-makers, their uncanny track selection is what sets them apart from the rest. H5C Chooses choice cuts like The Weekend's "The Morning," Theophulis London's "Love is Real" and Tyler The Creator's "Transylvania" as a soundtrack to visual creative genius. The unsanctioned videos are done in a cinematic style, they feature believable acting and tell stories of distress, love, violence and partying. The videos take center stage while the cuts act more like a soundtrack to the dramas. If you like this video shoot the J and check out a few more!

Jabari - Eternal (freestlye)


Newcomer Jabari hails from the Chi-Town and is here to spread the word!

Luke Christopher - Pretend We're In Love (video)



My first thoughts on this were pretty impressive. In the hip hop indie scene you usually see a video and by the time you get done watching it your first thoughts are something like... eehhh, that was typical. Not in this case at all. Not only did Luke Christopher step up to the plate with an impressive track, he orchestrated a video to match. This is one of the rare occasions that an indie artist creates a masterpiece by meshing visuals to match the vocals. Great stuff right here. 

Blax - Blax x Life x Files (album)


Blax links up with TheMadBloggers.com and RockTheDub.com for the release of his newest project Blax x Life x Files.

You can stream the full project after the jump.

BIG K.R.I.T - King pt. 2 (freestyle)


These days when it comes to Memphis the first thing that comes to mind is country shit, and when it comes to country shit these days K.R.I.T holds the crown. When your the countries king it's easy to stray the southern mob away from whats righteous towards the malevolent. K.R.I.T recognizes this and shows us he is a benevolent king and will help lead the flock away from subterfuge towards the light... "Lord Knows" we can always use more light :


Some of ya’ll may be familiar with my freestyle KING that I released in 2010, that touched on social issues and topics I felt important to speak on. I’d like to feel KING pt. 2 picks up where that left off. -K.R.I.T

S/O: PP

M.I - NoThing


The Austin emcee M.I samples some strings off the British super-group Coldplay. He then proceeds to use his melodic flow to help us get passed all the blah blah blah. " What we talkin bout real shit? We talkin bout rhymes/ you ain't talking bout a million then you wastin my time."
Now it's time to talk about whats important The Coldplay Sessions set to drop via DJ Booth on 2/21. For the visual to the first leak "Paradise" Shoot the J.
