Video: Kosha Dillz – Hangin Out

February 24th, 2013 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video |

Kosha Dillz recently dropped a fun new music video directed by Ricky Shabazz called “Hangin Out”. It’s a chill hip-hop track that everybody can sing along to as Kosha spits about something we all love doing, simply hanging out.

From mobbing out in Koreatown to Froyo, Hollywood Blvd. and Jewish delis, the self proclaimed Dillzionaire parades through Los Angeles all while hanging out with a mob of fans, friends and cameos that include Laker Girls and many more. The ode to kicking it comes from his forthcoming untitled record (or possibly series of EPs) that also features tracks with Gangsta Boo, Murs, Big Pooh, Wax and more.

Jazz Cartier – Jet Plane *alternative hip-hop

February 28th, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap |

Jazz Cartier continues to improve with each track he drops. Here’s his first release of 2012 and it might be my favorite from the 18-year old Toronto MC. This is first leak off of Marauding in Paradise set to release April 14th. Don’t sleep on this young cat!

Hidden Gem: Black EL x Durkin *Boston hip-hop

February 8th, 2012 by | Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video, Remix |

We’re an MC/producer duo from Boston called Black EL x Durkin.  We just released a new track called “Purgatory” from our forthcoming project, “The Collage.” Durkin intended this track to be an instrumental interlude, but eventually Black EL was inspired to write a verse to it.

In a nutshell, “Purgatory” is about the uncertainty of life and the power of choice. They have a video for “Purgatory” coming out next week. Listen and download “Purgatory” below.

Here’s a personal favorite of mine, because they remixed Aer and slowly turned the track into their own with this remix.

In the mean time, they recently dropped a video for another song off The Collage called “Under the Influence”. Watch it below!

Video: SomeWhere Else – Bunkers *alternative hip-hop

January 29th, 2012 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video |

I think SomeWhere Else is onto a new music movement or just trying to offer something safer and more alternative hip-hop vibe than what’s coming from Odd Future. Either way, I think I dig this song but it definitely is not in my favorites from the hip-hop band with 3 MCs and a guitarist.

However for a debut video from the LA hip-hop band, I think they really jumped onto the scene with quality production. According to P&P, the group is getting ready to release the upcoming project The SWEM (The SomeWhere Else Manifesto).

Watch the official video to “Bunkers” below.

STS – Cut Me Off (Gotye “Somebody That I Used To Know” flip)

January 11th, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video |

I normally hate posting freestyles, but artists like STS are an exception, especially when you attempt to rap over a chill yet emotive alternative song like Gotye‘s “Somebody That I Used To Know”.

Fresh off his acclaimed Kavinsky flip, STS stays in international territory and takes on Gotye with his latest release, “Cut Me Off”.

Robotic Pirate Monkey – Rio de Fuego *electronic single

October 8th, 2011 by | Dance, Electronic Rock |

Shout out to Freedzy for turning me onto Boulder, Colorado electronic artist, Robotic Pirate Monkey. Recently RPM’s management sent us “Rio de Fuego” the first single off their upcoming project to be released on Halloween! I just love the instrumentals which incorporate various elements not common with most electronic songs. “Rio de Fuego” isn’t one of those songs filled with synths but sounds real natural.

Rockie Fresh – They Don’t Understand Why Remix ft. Tayyib Ali x Sour

August 16th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

Two new songs from Rockie Fresh that popped up in the last couple months. This fall Rockie Fresh is releasing a new project and recently he released a trailer for it with a snippet from the unreleased track “No Fear”. But before I show you the video to that, here’s a couple new tracks from Rockie Fresh, which have a chill feel but show his serious flow. In “They Don’t Understand Why” Remix, Rockie gets Tayyib Ali on the track, two up-and-comers who should be strongly considered for XXL Freshmen 2012. Listen and download “They Don’t Understand Why” Remix and “Sour”, which has an interestingly slick beat.

SomeWhere Else – Hypocrite

August 1st, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Rock |

One of my favorite up-and-coming Los Angeles hip-hop bands, SomeWhere Else, is back with a new song after a fairly long hiatus of new music from them. Here’s what their management told me about them:

Finding a balance between their orchestral take on hip-hop while still producing hard hitting tracks, SomeWhere Else gives fans a whole new sound for them to make moves to this summer. The world can expect an out-pour of new music from SomeWhere Else over the coming weeks leading to the release of their next highly anticipated project, The Swem.

Below is “Hypocrite”, which has some laid back but rocking instrumentals, dope beat and the rapping is solid as usual. I think they got potential and as their sound continues to develop, so will the quality of their music. Trust me they will get better, I heard a couple other tracks from them already am excited for the future sound of SomeWhere Else.
