Prospect of the Week: Na Palm

August 14th, 2010 by | Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, Prospect of the Week |

Na Palm will enter the mainstream music scene before this year is over! I have been following the Chicago native for a few weeks now and he is one talented artist. He mixes a lot of genres together, mostly focusing on rapping over club banger/electronic beats. However he has a lot of chill, relaxing songs as well. Look out for this guy to blow up on the radio within the next few months!
Listen to and download a few of his songs here from his newest mixtape Dirty Girls Like Dirty Beats. Girls Like Dirty Beats by Na Palm

Prospect of the Week: XV

August 7th, 2010 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Prospect of the Week |

This week our “Prospect of the Week” is awarded to Wichita, Kansas rapper XV, who after 13 mixtapes and nearly 10 years of rapping, was been signed by Warner Bros on July 26th.

We posted a few songs by him before on this blog, but he definately deserves Prospect of the Week because of his recent record deal and he also put out a new mixtape called V Is For Vizzy a “best of” mixtape but there are a few exclusive songs as well.

He has toured with Chiddy Bang and Kid Cudi previously and was wanted by two other labels (including Atlantic) but chose Warner Bros. because it had room to grow. His debut album, The Kid With The Green Backpack is scheduled for a 2010 release.

Below you will find the download link for XV’s latest mixtape.

Wiz Khalifa
Mac Miller

So last week, we awarded our first “Prospect of the Week” to Mac Miller, an 18-year old Pittsburgh native who recently signed a record deal with Rostrum Records, the same label as Wiz Khalifa. This week he put out the song “Don’t Mind If I Do”, which samples pop/rock band Owl City, and I must say it’s pretty good.

Also this week, an unreleased track by Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa entered the blogosphere, “Fly Solo” and after hearing it, I had to post it. After being named “Hottest Breakthrough MC of 2010” by MTV, Wiz Khalifa got a new record deal, signing with Atlantic Records, via his indie label Rostrum Records. Khalifa is launching a 55-date “Waken Baken” Tour in North America in mid-September on the heels of his sold-out “Deal or No Deal” tour this summer.

Both these guys are moving up in terms of popularity and their music is only getting better. Check out “Don’t Mind If I Do” and “Fly Solo”.
