Following up off yet another top notch Nardwuar interview, Curren$y lets free for the streaming masses a cut off his upcoming Stoned Immaculate. This one featuring Pharrell and titled “Chasin’ Paper” features Pharrell on the hook delivering his patented falsetto. A little different than what I was expecting from the track, but different is good; Curren$y has lined up some big hitters on this album and hopefully they all come with their ‘A’ game and bring the heat (I ran out of vague baseball metaphors, we’ll get them next time).
This must be historic, I don’t believe Nardwuar has ever interviewed someone more than twice in his career. So for this to happen a third time and to one of my favorite guys Curren$y is pretty dope. Must be a run up to his latest release . One of the running issues in this series has been Nardwuar’s mic handling and Curren$y goes right in on it.
Nardwuar catches Curren$y again, this time on his turf in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada! Oh man I’m posting this without even watching it yet, that’s how much I know Nardwuar and Curren$y are can’t miss material.
Check out Nard’s interview with Tech N9ne, here.
How much do you love the Nard? Let me know @bjones21
Over beers and burgers, one of my dudes asked me, since I am I guess in the industry, to put him on some new hip hop for him to check out. He’s aware of the J. Coles of the world but looking for something else. So this is what I came up with on the fly for shit I’ve been bumping for the past 2 months.
So I bring you Woofer Syrup; not everything on here will be by new artists, but I promise that I think at least most of it will be dope, and that if you have a problem with that kiss my ass and shoot me suggestions.
Each month a new 10, and not strictly hip hop. These are scoured from across the landscape of freely released music, but if artist A, B, and/or C have a problem with their track being posted here, get at me: Brock@social8gency.com.
share and share alike. Take it a la carte below OR right-click & savethis.
2010 was solid across the board in what it offered hip hop fans. There was the emergence of future stars and pure talents in J. Cole, Wiz Khalifa, and Curren$y amongst others; as well as the old heads claiming true to their spot and releasing top quality work. I was enthralled by what came through this year.
This post was gonna start as a retrospective but fuck that everyone is doing that, I could talk at length about GOOD Fridays and how its made an indelible mark on hip hop merging old and new traditions, My Dark Twisted Fantasy, 50 Cent’s menacing of Twitter and the internet at large, Cudi loosing his shit again on stage (but still releasing an outstanding album), Eminem’s phoenix like return, or 9th Wonder’s chokehold on underground hip hop, but instead, here are videos to a few of my favorite songs by a small piece of the young hip hop artists that are breaking on the scene.
