MCMF – “I Can Rap” (Mixtape)

May 29th, 2012 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video, Remix |

New Jersey rapper and producer MCMF recently dropped his newest mixtape “I Can Rap”. MCMF has a very unique but enjoyable flow.  He fuses elements of Hip-Hop, Pop, Rock and Soul to develop the unique sound of his music. MCMF is known for his powerful and heartfelt lyrics.  In my eyes it is a perfect combination to keep the listener pleased and entertained. Hearing “I Can Rap” minutes after it dropped, I was instantly in love.

I Can Rap” is a sponsored tape on Datpiff.com and can be downloaded for free there. Make sure to download the tape and check out his Facebook page for more info!

Hidden Gem: Kosha Dillz *indie rap

January 30th, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap |

Kosha Dillz will probably go down as one of the most famous jewish rappers of the 21st century. After seeing him live for the 2nd time in late 2011, I became a big fan as he’s a crowd pleaser and really a talented MC.

Recently he’s been doing lots of shows, putting out new tracks over once a month and killing the hip-hop game with press all over. Here’s my three recent favorites from the Jewish rapper from New Jersey.

Hidden Gem: I.O.U. *everything music

July 27th, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap, R&B |

I.O.U.‘s genre is everything, meaning their music is a mixed bag, some you will really like, some not so much but overall you hear a new sound. Lots of potential from I.O.U. Here’s what their management had to say about the group on their debut album, B.O.M.Bs (Breaking Our Mind Barriers).

 

All the productions were done by I.O.U, meaning Inside Our Universe. With this album Jersey natives, Isaiah ‘Izee’, Andrew ‘Buck’ Buckner, and manager Charles ‘Chuck’ Ferrone set out to change mindsets in a world where genre is everything! I.O.U is soul music, it’s hip hop, it’s world music; to sum it up, it’s passion.

Download Breaking Our Mind Barriers (debut album)

Here’s my four favorites from the mixtape.

I.O.U. – Walls


I.O.U. – Mountains (mo-town sample!)


I.O.U. – Dominos


I.O.U. – Bottled Emotions ft. Evangelia

After the jump, watch the music videos for “Mountains” and “Bottled Emotions”. Follow I.O.U. on facebook, I only see their music improving.

Introducing HaTer *hip-pop chillaxing

June 13th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

I don’t exactly remember how I got three HaTer songs on my iTunes. I checked my inbox and didn’t see any email submission, so then I searched a few of my favorite blog’s and didn’t see anything.

HaTer is an artist from New Jersey and has a special flavor that doesn’t make him sound like every other white rapper out there. His sound is a bit more catchy but not frat rap where his beats are what makes him sound good; he reminds me of a less lyrical but more cathcy OnCue. Here’s a couple songs that better explain HaTer‘s sound as an artist.

Hidden Gem: SoLo

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

For SoLo’s 19th birthday, this is the perfect day to do a post on him. From New Jersey, Patrick Jamieson aka SoLo, moved to Long Island and earned the title as one of Long Islands Most Talented Young Hip-Hop Artists.


In late September, SoLo released a mixtape, Out of the Ordinary (download), and below are a couple of my favorites off it. The mixtape is really good with production from 9th Wonder on a track and featuring Na Palm on another track.


Listen and download “Every Morning”, which samples the Sugar Ray song of the same name, and SoLo’s latest single, “Movin’ Out” ft. Young Mel.
