Fresh new [e aka Cloudeater for everyone’s ears. This time they link up with DC & MMG’s Wale to release “Faces”.
Released this morning as an exclusive via Jay Z’s Life+Times, hopefully that sorta platform gives [e a bigger profile; they are a band with a bright future. Further more on this track they were able to get Wale back on his shit, not that MMG Wale is bad, but I feel its content and style hasn’t given him a chance to shine and express why he was so hot a few years ago in the first place.
Sound FX dropped this on the world today in anticipation to their latest project and the Things Fall Apart: A Prelude To The Sunset which should be dropping within the next month. So for now as they say enjoy this little gem “21 In Vegas” as an appetizer as they prepare the entree.
If you’re in the LA area make sure to check Sound FX at Little Temple March 1st (Thursday). Their headlining a bill along with DJs 10ft Rabbit & The GetDown Collective. Check the flyer & more info HERE.
The holidays had me all fucked up: +10lbs, social media blackout (actually happy about this one), & I somehow missed this live gem from pop & soul killers Quadron. They drop in to cover Lauryn Hill’s classic “Ex Factor”. Absolute woofer syrup. Oh and Happy New Year!
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.
I really don’t think there is an active artist that I can truly say I love and hate like Blu. The Kanye’s of the world have become purely caricatures of human beings so my attitude towards them is no different than Snooki; my consternation goes as soon as the incident is over – just entertain me.
With Blu he to me is the true leader of this loosely connected NeWest movement in hip hop, complimented by TiRon, Dom Kennedy, Kendrick Lamar, OFWGKTA, Casey Veggies, PacDiv, and others. His mic skills are impeccable, he’s slowly becoming a accomplished producer, and his lyrics are not of the inaccessible sort. He kills every track he’s on! Problem is he just needs to be on more tracks.
Well this week a few prayers have been answered, a few days after appearing on the stellar “In” from HomeBaseNYC‘s Live At The Clubhouse MixTape(with two other personal faves Freddie Gibbs & Homeboy Sandman), Blu drops his 7 track Amnesia EP, click the pic to buy. Now all I need is No York!
