First we go with chill-hop-pop trio Radical Something. It’s hard to define this group but chill is a word that would almost always be used to describe them. Check out a song about my favorite state in the world, “California”.
Radical Something – “California”
AudioDax recently released Pop Rocks (DOWNLOAD), which is full of hip-pop songs. Although I’m not the biggest fan of the mixtape, “Careful Time” has smooth instrumentals, a mix of solid vocals and rapping. Overall a real catchy song.

Next comes a newcomer to BtB, Allen Mask. His song “Radio” is real catchy, rapping is solid, beat is a little basic but overall the hook is fun and gets you dancing.

Lou Williams, point guard of the Philadelphia 76ers decided to make music while the NBA lockout continues. He pairs up with Dave Patten to create “Slow It Down”. Lou’s rapping is better than Ron Artest’s, Dave Patten‘s hook is fire, overall a fun song and I’m a big fan of the instrumentals and Patten’s vocals.

Lastly we go with the most mainstream artists in this post with Shwayze & Cisco. In June they released “Summertime Music” which is a perfect title as this Summer jam is radio-friendly but also real chill for Summer. In terms of chill-hop, these guys are at the top of the game.
