Hidden Gem: Macklemore

September 29th, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap |

Check these guys out from Seattle. Macklemore is the rapper, Ryan Lewis is the producer, and together they are a dynamic duo. Macklemore’s lyrics and flow are solid. Otherside, their best song in my opinion is off of their The Vs. EP. Download

This rap group is from Boston. Above is video of them touring with Sam Adams, you really see how they pump up the crowd and overall just a fun group to listen to.

They are all about the upbeat party record and deep lyrics. They are gaining popularity across the East Coast, touring with Sam Adams. Here’s one of their best party songs, Cups in the Air(Download here). Another favorite of mine is One Sunrise (Download here)

Kid Cudi – “Dangerous”: Beef with Kid Cudi and Wale?

September 19th, 2010 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

I hate when there’s beef between artist, it’s just a bad reason to put out terrible diss tracks. Suddenly there’s beef between two of my favorite artists up-and-coming artists in Kid Cudi and Wale. I really don’t want to go into detail because I hate beef, so read prefix mag‘s take on it.

But I wont leave you empty handed with this post. So enjoy a new song from Kid Cudi, “Dangerous” featuring Rich Hil on the hook.

Based out of Memphis, Tennessee, FreeSol is all about mixing genres. They do an excellent job of blending progressive hip-hop, rock, and soul into one amazing sound. The group first started making music together in 2003 but we will soon get to know them a lot better. As a matter fact, their single “Don’t Give It Away” was featured on this season of Entourage. They have a whole slue of great songs to choose from. One of them called “Bigger than that” was preformed at Lollapalooza back in 2008. You can watch the video here. Also listen to and download “No one can stop me” featuring Adam Tensta as well as “Thunderstuck” featuring Jackie Chain.

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.
