Video: Jacob Es – Paranoia *Heartbeat” freestyle

April 21st, 2012 by | Electro, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video |

Jacob Es‘s new visual “Paranoia” seems boring in the beginning, but give it a minute and you’ll fall in love, just like I did. If you didn’t know, Jacob is rapping over the Childish Gambino banger, “Heartbeat“. “Paranoia” is off Jacob EsThe Road mini-mixtape.

Here is a little about the video from Jacob himself:

The Paranoia music video brings to life the debilitating reality of being your own worst enemy. When I originally wrote the first verse, I was up late having a panic attack and used the act of writing the piece to bring me back to a sense of normalcy. For the video, Ryan and I wanted to show people what the words really represent, because even though at times it seems easier to place blame elsewhere for the way we are feeling, the only person who can truly change your state of mind is yourself. We grow everyday, and constantly encounter new people and things, but in the end its the man in the mirror that you need to justify your actions to.

Watch the video to “Paranoia” below. (more…)

Rich Kid Sound System – Hey! Young Girl! x Synthetic Love (Q Freestyle)

December 28th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop |

Two new songs from Rich Kid Sound System which are the next installment as part of their “BEACH DAY” Wednesday releases building up to the release of their “No Cheers for Pioneers EP” (No official release date).

“Hey! Young Girl!” once again shows that RKSS never has a problem coming up with a catchy hook and fun instrumentals.

Olu – Bonfire ft. Tunde

October 3rd, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Remix |

Another track from Olu, on someone else’s beat. He jacks Childish Gambino‘s beat and kills it. I was a little skeptical at first because Gambino is one of my favorite rappers. But Olu did it justice.

I’ve also included two of my other favorite Olu works. “Oprah Winfrey” was my hands down favorite as he raps over Mac Miller‘s “Donald Trump”, and the beat from Kreayshawn‘s “Gucci Gucci” just makes me want to kill someone, but it’s still worth listening to.

Timeflies Tuesday – Predictions

September 28th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

Well, everyones favorite frat rap duo, Timeflies, drops us their weekly edition of “Timeflies Tuesday,” with Cal freestyling over a beat made by Rez. Absolutely great stuff from these two, I just hope they give us download links for this stuff.

“The Lions come roaring into Jerry Jones’ palace, but we’ll have to see when they get it on, but I don’t think its humanly possible to be stopping Megatron”

B.o.B – Welcome to the Jungle Freestyle

September 22nd, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

Bobby Ray does his thing on Jay-Z and Kayne‘s beat from “Watch the Throne.” Taking the beat off the top 10 album on iTunes, B.o.B freestyles over it to create a decent track, but being that its a freestyle, its great, B.o.B is one of the most underrated freestylers in the game. Not sure if this track will be on his upcoming mixtape, “Strange Clouds”.

B.o.B – Welcome to the Jungle (Freestyle)

Other B.o.B freestyles:

“No Future” (Odd Future diss)

Wale – Ambitionz Freestyle

Los – Gucci Gucci Freestyle

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

Everyone from Lil Wayne to Meek Mill is doing their best freestyle on Kreayshawn‘s “Gucci Gucci.” Los stands out with this one name-dropping every chick in the game (one big room full of bad bitches). He does it all effortlessly without ever breaking his flow. Then he one’s up that verse with punchlines like “we beef over that cheese, you gon think I’m makin lasagna.” Los is a real threat in the punchline game. Look out for him on future mixtapes.

Chiddy Bang – I Can’t Stop (Music Video)

July 7th, 2011 by | Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video |

Chiddy Bang goes over Flux Pavilion‘s “I Can’t Stop”. I love the beat and what Xaphoon Jones does with it which allows Chiddy to straight kill in on the rhymes once again. “I Can’t Stop” is off CB’s last project, Peanut Butter & Swelly.

Chiddy Bang is a huge reason why we started this blog. Our first ever blog post we posted “Opposite of Adults” and “All Things Go”, still at the top among my all-time favorite CB songs. It’s been a great year developing this brand and we can’t wait to continually find you great music from up-and-coming artists, introduce you to new artists every day and work on more opportunities to give back to you including contests, merchandise, shows and much more!

Anyways, here’s “I Can’t Stop” to listen and download.

(more…) presents: Young Prince (interview, freestyle & new songs!)

June 18th, 2011 by | Before Bigs Exclusive, Hip-Hop/Rap |

In May, I had the opportunity to sit down with DMV-area rapper Young Prince while he was in Los Angeles promoting his music.

Young Prince talked about his upcoming mixtape, The Reverse Effect, his upcoming album that he’s currently working on, D.A.D., and gave me a little better idea of who Young Prince is and what he’s all about. When asked how best to describe his music, Beau Young said, “Like the first time Marvin Gaye hit a jay”.

Young Prince was nice enough to do a 1-minute acapella freestyle. If you are interested in just watching that, skip to 3:40 in the video.

Here’s a couple songs off The Reverse Effect, dropping tomorrow. After speaking to Beau about this project and hearing the songs he has released off it, I truly believe this to be his real breakout project.
