Huey Mack – Alive

October 2nd, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

A sweet track from Huey Mack, with a nice sample to bring a cool, laid back feel to challenge Huey’s smooth rapping. With Huey reflecting on his life, he shows a side that I’ve never seen. Give it a listen and let me know what you think.

The other day, Huey Mack released his latest mixtape, Freshman 15. This is my first real listen to Huey, and I have to say, I was really impressed. His sound is real polished, his flows are tight, and the beats are awesome. Producers for the tape include Big Jerm, Brenton Duvall, and the Xtraordinary Gentleman, meaning that there is top notch production throughout the tape.

I’m not going to say Huey isn’t cliche “frat rap” or whatever you want to call it, but Freshman 15 is super chill for the most part, but also includes some more upbeat party jams. My favorites from the tape are:

Huey Mack – “Syllabus Week”

Huey Mack – “Looking at the Sky”

Sampled Saturday *Huey, Henny, The Tripp, Ferragamo, Truth Himself

April 16th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Sampled Saturday |

Another edition of Sampled Saturday and I’m giving this a fresh label as all of these songs have come out within the last month all are hip-hop yet sample non hip-hop songs in mostly the pop genre. Take a listen, guarantee you fall in love with at least one of these songs.

First I gotta hit you with The Tripp‘s “Pure Creation” which samples parts of the score and dialogue in the film, Inception. Shout out to GMAD on the find, loving the simple piano & hi-hat beat. One of the few chill songs I really appreciate because it sounds different.

When someone samples Queen, it’s fairly impossible for me to dislike the song. Carlos Ferragamo raps over this dope instrumental pretty well. Ferragamo was featured on an e-dubble Freestyle Friday song (FF #33) and I’m glad e-dubble’s manager hit me up with Carlos’ latest project, Shades of Blue.

Next we got Truth Himself rapping over one of my favorite songs I heard on KROQ where I immediately said, I got to find out who is performing this song. Truth Himself samples The Temper Trap‘s hit single, “Sweet Disposition” which is heard in a million films so hearing this hip-hop over the song is a dope change of pace.
Truth Himself – The Best of Me

Next we got Henny rapping over UK pop singer Daniel Bedingfield‘s “Gotta Get Thru This”. He keeps the foundation of the instrumental, throws in a simple beat and raps his ass of to make for a chill yet popping hip-hop song.

Lastly, here’s one of the newest songs from my favorite West Virginia rapper, Huey Mack. Actually Huey Mack is the only rapper I like from West Virginia (sorry Novi Novak). In this he samples La Roux (who hasn’t) but it’s a dope song, which I mostly enjoy because he took an electro pop song and turned it into a hip-hop jam with a La Roux hook.

Hidden Gem: Huey Mack

September 27th, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop |

This 18-year old hails from Morgantown, West Virginia and is an up-and-coming alternative hip-hop artist to watch out for. He released his debut mixtape (Wish Me Luck) in May, which you can download here and is set to release his 2nd mixtape, Bright Lights and Long Nights, on October 10.

Below are a couple tracks Huey Mack released early off his upcoming mixtape. I love “Live It Up” because of the awesome Passion Pit “Sleepyhead” sample in it. Listen and (control-click to) download “Live It Up”.
