Maximum Balloon ft. Theophilus London

August 9th, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap, Miscellaneous, Music Video |

We’ve mentioned Theophilus London in a previous post. There we mentioned his unique style that is ahead of it’s time. He does a great job of mixing 80’s style music, with electronic beats making an interesting sound to his music.

He takes some time to get used to as his music sounds a bit odd at first, but we promise that if you continue to listen to him, then he will grow on you.
He was recently featured in a Maximum Balloon song called “Groove Me” which we feel has a sound unlike most you hear today. These two will continue to grow as artists and eventually become mainstream when their music catches up with it’s time.
Listen to “Groove Me” and download it if you want. We also included the music video of “Humdrum Town” to get more of a feel of Theophilus London’s musical style.

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.

I wanted to take another break from discussing music to talk about the next big actor in Hollywood who is bound to be adored by women of all ages. His name is Andrew Garfield.

He was recently rewarded the role of Peter Parker in the upcoming Untitled Spider-man Reboot film which is set to release July 2012. He also stars alongside Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Timberlake in The Social Network the true story about the creation of Facebook.

Look out for this guy in the near future as he is about to become a household name in the film industry.
