Sonny Shotz – “We Do” (Bonobo’s – “All in Forms”)

August 5th, 2011 by | Ambient, Hip-Hop/Rap, Remix |

Sonny Shotz has been quite busy as of late, touring with his group The Dean’s List and dropping some awesome new tracks along the way. Yesterday, we were given yet another from “Mr. Fuck It I’m Young” with a remix to Bonobo’s – All in Forms”. Here he uses the infamous “Beast” voice that he has portrayed a lot in previous songs of his and it’s his best yet. This kid is blowing up and his future is very bright. Enjoy!


Sonny Shotz – “Never Good” (Bonobo Remix)

July 28th, 2011 by | Ambient, Hip-Hop/Rap, Remix |

Another new Sonny Shotz track and it’s a good one. In this song, Sonny raps over a Bonobo remix which is straight fire. The beat is super laid back but very catchy and enjoyable to listen to, especially with Sonny’s killer lyricism. This kid as well as The Dean’s List continue to improve off each new track they drop and it is only a matter of time before their songs are played all over the radio and they are performing a major music festivals (I’m saying by next summer at the latest). Anyway, enjoy this awesome track, I am positive you will be playing this one a repeat.

“Enough is never good and im way too clutch”

Sonny Shotz – Our Heaven ft. John Gannon

July 19th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

Sonny Shotz, MC of The Dean’s List has released a new track, exclusively with one of my favorite blogs, P&P. This features John Gannon and is produced by Teddy Roxpin, whose done some dope work with Mac Miller in the past and many other up-and-coming rappers.

I like how the beat in “Our Heaven” sounds kind of spacey, has solid flow from Sonny Shotz and surprisingly dope flow from newcomer John Gannon, who shows much potential. Listen and download “Our Heaven” below.

June 5th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Remix |

Sonny Shotz of The Dean’s List hooks up with super producer Brenton Duvall to create an awesome new track called “I’m Only 20”. Sonny is quite possibly my favorite up and coming rapper in the game today and the same goes with Brenton on the producing side. This track is amazing and I hope to hear more collaborations by the two talents in the very near future. Enjoy!

Interview w/DJ Mendoza & Sonny Shotz of The Dean’s List (BtB exclusive)

Back on January 3rd, I met up with DJ Mendoza and Sonny Shotz of The Dean’s List to talk about their upcoming mixtape, The Drive-in which is set to release later this month. Unfortunately, Mik Beats could not make it to the interview. However, I got a sneak preview of their entire mixtape and I can promise you that they have really taken their music to the next level. The bar is set much higher for any other hip-hop groups looking to break into the music industry.

Since I interviewed them, they have released a handful of tracks and music videos from the mixtape and each song they leak is better than the previous one. I really look forward to the release of The Drive-in and if you don’t know about The Dean’s List now, you certainly will after the mixtape drops. Shout out to our friend Idriss for his fantastic video editing skills. Enjoy!

Bonus: Check out the video interview I conducted with the entire group back in September here.
