I love songs that have sounds that can’t be put into one category. Some of you readers notice I love music that can’t be defined by one genre. It just seems to sound real fresh to me when I hear music that mixes genres.

First let’s start off with a song from Travis Barker‘s latest album, Let The Drummer Get Wicked. It features Lupe Fiasco and the rapping is dope over the rock instrumentals. Lupe’s flow just comes off the instrumentals so smooth for over a guitar and drum beat.

Curren$y be”Soundbombin'” on this track, basically just killing it with his flow on the live drum set with the rocking instrumentals.

Next we got LA rapper Murs and Jacksonville punk band Whole Wheat Bread joining forces for a song called “I-10”, named after a freeway I cruise along in LA a lot. I love the punk rock instrumental and chorus with Murs killing it as usual with his unique flow. Murs = best LA underground hip-hop artist.

Next we got The ILLZ with a song that put out in February called “Learn To Fly (The Rocket)”. I haven’t loved every song from them, but they sound real close to a local act I love, SomeWhere Else. If I were flying now, this would be one of the dopest songs from lift-off.

Lastly I wanted to give you a fun-loving song from MTHDS. I featured them a few weeks back with “Positive Movement”. Here’s another hit from their last release, Ship Of Fools (download), called “A Song About Life”.
