Hidden Gem: Kokayi

December 13th, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap, R&B, Rock |

Shouts to P&P for exposing me to an amazing genre-blending artist in Kokayi. Kokayi is really an interesting talent and here’s some words on why:

Synaptic overload of punk/hip-hop/funk/rock/psycho-discobilly, whichever box you want to put us in, we explode out of. We paint outside the lines and write beyond the margins. We like long walks in the sand,and goat cheese. turn ons: big speakers.

Above is from Kokayi’s facebook page. Below are three of my favorites off Kokayi’s latest release, Robots & Dinosaurs, purchase (trust me, it’s DOPE!).

Roxtar (Thrash Rmx)
Chanticleer

By the way, Kokayi is a grammy award-winning singer/songwriter/emcee/producer; he’s got major talent!

Kid Cudi – Man on the Man II: The Legend of Mr. Rager

October 31st, 2010 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap |
Kid Cudi’s sophmore debut ‘Man On The Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager’ is a much darker take on music for Cudi. The lyrics in his music have always been very good and it shows here in his new album.
The whole album is very good, with Cudi rapping a lot harder than usual. The top songs on the album are The Mood, Marijauna, Ashin’ Kusher, The End, and Scott Mescudi Vs. The World.
Enjoy the album! Happy Halloween!
