Sampled Saturday *Justin W, Matt Clarke, Nicky Rage, Upper West, Warm Brew

July 2nd, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Sampled Saturday |

Another edition of Sampled Saturday and this week we got samples ranging from Britney Spears, Tom Petty, Avicii, Peter Pan and Billy Preaston.

First Justin W mixes up Britney Spears latest hit, rapping over a dubstep beat with some vocals riffs from Spears. Overall this is one of my favorites from Justin W and his production and rap skills seem to improve with each new song.
Justin W – It Never Ends (freestyle)
Next we go to Boston rapper Matt Clarke with “Free Fallin”. This is produced by Plan Z, rapping is alright but I mostly enjoy this song because of the chill Tom Petty sample. “Free Fallin” is off Clarke’s latest mixtape, Blank Check (DOWNLOAD).
Matt Clarke – Free Fallin (Prod. by Plan Z)
Avicii sample, I couldn’t refuse posting this. This is the only song from Nicky Rage that I like and that’s solely because of the Avicii beat. It’s banging and the rap added to it doesn’t take away much from the beat.
Nicky Rage – Summertime Feelin’
Next comes probably the best sample using a song from Peter Pan! Love Upper West‘s creativity with the sample. “I Won’t Grow Up” from Upper West reminds me of Fortune Family and I look forward to more from the group.
Upper West – I Won’t Grow Up
Lastly comes a Billy Preaston sample. “Nothin From Nothin” comes from LA hip-hop group Warm Brew who has a chill flow. This is probably my favorite from the group and off their last project, Warm Brew EP (DOWNLOAD).
Warm Brew – Nothin from Nothin

Matt Clarke – Come On Let’s Go

November 15th, 2010 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop |

Boston’s Matt Clarke leaks another track off his upcoming mixtape, Clarke’s Bars, dropping later this month.

DJ Doubletake with the really good beat and Kj Miller adding some nice vocals on the hook makes for an enjoyable track by Matt Clarke. I expect some more hits once his mixtape drops as Clarke has some good rhymes.

Hidden Gem: Matt Clarke

November 7th, 2010 by | Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap |

Matt Clarke has a rap/pop kind of music, with solid rhymes over some great beats. Above is the cover art for Clarke’s Bars, his upcoming mixtape dropping Mid-November.

Here’s a little bio on Matt Clarke:

From Arlington MA, right outside Boston. I’ve done shows with Juelz Santana, Jadakiss and the Lox, Stalley, Chris Webby and some other shows as well. The tape is called “Clarke’s Bars” and it should be out mid november sometime. It’s really just a good mix of concept tracks and bangas on original beats and industry beats. I’ve taken classes at Berklee and I’m currently in my last semester at Middlesex Community College. My music focuses around who I am as a person, the life of a college student, a year in prison and the death of loved ones.

Below are two of my favorites from Matt Clarke.
