Sampled Saturday *G-Eazy, Gabriel Stark, Gilbere Forte, Sucka Free CJ, Ethan Jaymes

October 1st, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap, Sampled Saturday |

All these artists have been featured on BtB before and all have immense talent that will take them places in the future.

G-Eazy put this track out a couple days ago which samples Janis Joplin. I like how he continues to sample classic music that has shaped the music that came after it. Eazy’s a throwback and “Mercedes Benz (The American Dream)” proves his talent and the production skills on this is fire.

Gabriel Stark recently dropped Thursday In Australia, a mixtape which is heavy on freestyle over others beats and some simple sampling. However “Lets Enjoy The Party”, which samples “Hello” by Dragonette & Martin Solveig is real cool. He speeds up the original, throws some sick beats on it, and really shows his rap skills on this banger of an instrumental.

Gilbere Forte get’s The Kickdrums production on it and just kills it on the sample he pulls from them. I respect and enjoy both artists and this collaboration packs a punch of awesome music that can’t be ignored. This song is probably a small reason why Forte recently got invited to the 2011 BET Awards.

Tons of artists have rapped over it, with Pusha T being the most recent example. However Sucka Free CJ adds simple hip-hop beat and spits fire. This is off Sucka Free’s latest mixtape, Trill Life.

Lastly we go to Rhode Island rapper Ethan Jaymes with “Reebok Pumps”, which samples Foster The People. I know I know, too many people have sampled/remixed/mashed-up “Pumped Up Kicks”, but this has some added beats to it and Jaymes straight kills it on the beat. This comes off his Breakfast In Rhode Island mixtape, which we sponsored, so you know it’s dope!

Hidden Gem: Sucka Free CJ *mixtape + new song

May 3rd, 2011 by | Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop, R&B |

Sucka Free CJ has this smooth chill hip-hop sound. I’m not usually a big fan of that type of hip-hop yet his sounds new and fresh unlike many that have these 90’s type beats.

Here’s a few of my favorites off Ars Gratia Artis: Unfinished Business (download).
Sucka Free CJ – Give You More (Remix)
Sucka Free CJ – Faith
Sucka Free CJ – New Msg
If you like those songs, I recommend listening & downloading “Sundown” a chill R&B track with instrumentals that are reminiscent of Jet Age of Tomorrow.
