A nice easy track from Basic Vocab, "Come Get With It" takes it's cues from the likes of Common and A Tribe Called Quest. You might have heard it on Entourage a while back.

Some Newish & Not So New Stuff

Glock Nines (Ratatat Remix) - Jay-Z & Beanie Sigel -- ZShare

- Simple but good remix by Ratatat.

The Reeling - Passion Pit -- Zshare

- First single off Passion Pit's (the guys who did Sleepyhead) new album.  Its not that new but very good.  There is something about the lead singer's voice that is very unique, which adds to the allure of the band.  Also check out the music video here.  its really weird but cool.

Hot Love Drama - MGMT -- Zshare

- New MGMT.  It's a little different, but I still like it.
Little Secret (nouveau)  - Passion Pit  -- Drop.io (Download)

-So Passion Pit is having a remix contest and this is the single they released for it. More info on the contest here. Listeners will vote on the best version and the winner will be picked on May 15th. Track is pretty good on its own but I cant wait to see what people come up with. 
 

Keepin it Weird

Heres some Santogold and Lykke Li to wrap up your weekend. "Shove It (Grandtheft Remix)" Santogold featuring Spank Rock, as well as "I'm Good, I'm Gone" by Lykke Li. enjoy

Magic Man



New Kanye featuring John Legend, Common, and Mailk Yusef. The verses are incredible (except Mailk's even though its still awkwardly good) and i like the ending

DC Chillin

Our very own Wale has announced his first album, Attention Deficit, will drop this summer. The first single "Chillin" features a catchy sample, as well as Lady Gaga doing her best MIA impression.

Here are a few other tracks from the DC native:

Because every good rapper needs a song about strippers

A track from last year's "Mixtape About Nothing". Interesting background.

Obligatory track with Wayne.

Re-Rebirth?


After receiving a polarized response to rock-oriented tracks such as "Prom Queen" and "Hot Revolver" (I'm a fan), Weezy switches up the game plan for Rebirth. With these new tracks, Wayne exhibits what he does best, RAPPING over guitar-laden, Beastie Boys-esque beats. Here's a couple of cuts currently making the Internet rounds:

"Spit" ft. Kevin Rudolph (3rd Official Single) -

Chiddy Bang


These guys have been making some major noise with their flow and infectious beats/remixes. They are all in college in Philly and with their awesome taste in samples and their singles have been really good so far.

Snakes on a Plane: Edited for TV

a feeble attempt at editting the classic line

Soldier - N.E.R.D

N.E.R.D has been pretty quiet since seeing sounds. This track features Santagold, and in some versions, Weezy. I don't think there's a studio version yet, but here's a live recording with a nice verse from Wayne.

Kind of a Big Deal...


"Kinda Like a Big Deal" - Clipse ft. Kanye West (Prod. by DJ Khalil)
http://www.zshare.net/audio/589565355c63caad/

The VA Beach boys come hard with this certified banger produced by L.A.'s own DJ Khalil. Though The Thornton Brothers undoubtedly go in on the track, Kanye steals the show, delivering one of his best and most technical verses to date.

Mashup Monday: Super Mash Bros

If you haven't already heard of these fellows, their album is sick. Its a continuous mix, mostly of 90's alt and current hip-hop. They're clever sons of bitches. Just look at their name.

PT: Mashup Mondays




I got a couple of mashups this week: Asher Roth vs T-Wayne, Katy Perry vs Metallica, Lil Wayne vs Coldplay, Lady Gaga vs 3 6 Mafia and Pitbull, and last but not least Usher vs Taylor Swift.   
Note: some of the previews of these songs have crappy sound quality but im pretty sure that when u download them (which you should bc they r free), they get better.

Reeaally good mashup between I Love College and Got Money. And for those of you who hate Asher, dont worry cuz hes not in it.

Surpisingly awesome. I was a little skeptical before i heard it but this is actually really good. The sound quality of the preview may be crappy but when u download it its better.

Terry Urban did a good job with this mashup. Viva la Vida vs A Millie. another really good mashup.

One more good mashup. Lolli Lolli vs Poker Face. Poker Face's beats with Lolli Lolli's verses, works out really well.

Last, but definately not least. As if Love Story needed improving, but this mashup is done really well. Love Story vs Love in This Club. Check it out.

Whatup Bitches.



First off, hopefully you've checked out Rhymefest's mixtape The Manual.  It's a few weeks old but for those who haven't copped it yet, do so now. Link's below. 


He does hate on the bloggerfolk though: "You from cleveland claimin' harlem / Brooklyn girls this guys got problems / I'm from chi-town where dey rob 'em / Stay at home and stick to bloggin"..... shit, why you gotta be like that 'fest.

Also, here are a a couple tracks me and the crew recorded back in the day, one is the Seiver song and the other is a clip of the WORST take ever, which happened while we were recording "Taking a Shit on Connor's Flaky Face," it's pretty funny.  I'll post more of these old gems later, and once Senior Projects start I'll be posting fresh ones.  

seiver song:

Peace.

Blame It On the...


Jamie Foxx's "Blame It" vs. The Pharcyde's "Passin' Me By"-
http://www.zshare.net/audio/5888483873d5c039/

Little bit of the old versus the new. Alcohol-inspired pop gem of the autotune era layered on top of one of my favorite 90's throwback joints. Good for a lazy Sunday, post-party contemplation of the previous night. Enjoy.

Bruno Trailer

If you thought Borat was funny, meet Bruno. Sacha Baron Cohen's homosexual alter ego hits the big screen this summer.

Neo-Journey




Honestly im not sure how I feel about these remixes but the first time I heard them I thought they were cool so you may want to check them out.

mashup with Lady GaGa and Akon, ive actually heard better versions of this on youtube but i cant find any downloadable ones.

A remix to Any Way You Want It... good but gets kindof repetative by the end

May be my favorite out of the bunch -- its just Dont Stop Believing with a dope beat put over it. Simple. Safe. Sgood.

Marinelli's Here Too...

...and I'm white. 


Like this douche.

Asher Roth, a fellow white man, came onto the scene a couple months ago. The dude's got kind of a bad rep, due largely to his fruity single I Love College. This cracker isn't all bad though. He released this mixtape a while back, and there's some good stuff on it. I recommend "The Cannon" and  "Just Listen".

My Drive Thru


Even though this songs kinda old its still pretty good. Its Pharrell, Julian Casablancas, and Santogold. The video was a commercial for Converse for a while.

FALCONER IS IN THE BUILDING

...and I like my words Easter pink.



"Yacht Club"- Rick Ross ft. Magazeen
http://www.zshare.net/audio/587052975100b629/

Over a smooth, soulful beat, Officer Rauce serves up another series of high society swagger-raps. The track features resident Rasta-man Magazeen.

Deeper Than Rap in stores April 21st.
BAUCE.

CT's songs for the day


- Nice Remix to Cut Copy.  A mix of alternative and electronic music.


- A pretty basic remix to Jay-Z.  Nothing way to different, but I think the beat is a little better and more complex.


- Standard fun and upbeat Flo-Rida song.  Real Miami sound with all three Florida rappers and the track.

Bladerunner

I was too tired to do any work last night,  so I watched the 1982 classic Harrison Ford movie, Bladder Runner for the first time.  It's a little hard to follow at times, but definitely worth adding to your netflix.  You can also watch it instantly on netflix like I did.  It's directed by Ridley Scott, one of my favorite directors.  It also got an 8.3 on IMDB, which is a pretty high score.  I recommend it.

Kanye's Reaction to South Park's 'Fishsticks'

On his own blog, Kanye had this to say about South Park's bashing:
"SOUTH PARK MURDERED ME LAST NIGHT AND IT'S PRETTY FUNNY. IT HURTS MY FEELINGS BUT WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM SOUTH PARK! I ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY EGO THOUGH. HAVING THE CRAZY EGO IS PLAYED OUT AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE AND CAREER. I USE TO USE IT TO BUILD UP MY ESTEEM WHEN NOBODY BELIEVED IN ME. NOW THAT PEOPLE DO BELIEVE AND SUPPORT MY MUSIC AND PRODUCTS THE BEST RESPONSE IS THANK YOU INSTEAD OF "I TOLD YOU SO!!!" IT'S COOL TO TALK SHIT WHEN YOU'RE RAPPING BUT NOT IN REAL LIFE. WHEN YOU MEET LITTLE WAYNE IN PERSON HE'S THE NICEST GUY FOR EXAMPLE. I JUST WANNA BE A DOPER PERSON WHICH STARTS WITH ME NOT ALWAYS TELLING PEOPLE HOW DOPE I THINK I AM. I NEED TO JUST GET PAST MYSELF. DROP THE BRAVADO AND JUST MAKE DOPE PRODUCT. EVERYTHING IS NOT THAT SERIOUS. AS LONG AS PEOPLE THINK I ACT LIKE A BITCH THIS TYPE OF SHIT WILL HAPPEN TO ME. I GOT A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE I'M NOT ACTUALLY A HUGE DOUCHE BUT I'M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE. I'M SURE THE WRITERS AT SOUTH PARK ARE REALLY NICE PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE. THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO DRAW MY CREW. THAT WAS PRETTY FUNNY ALSO!! I'M SURE THERE'S GRAMMATICAL ERRORS IN THIS... THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW IT'S ME!"

As you may have assumed from his comments, the episode was ultimately about his ego,but heres what it concluded with:
Download the full version of "Gay Fish" here

Some Different Sounding Songs

In keeping with PT's post of some MGMT,  I'm gonna post a little weird music.


- Kinda eery song by Kleerup.


- Interesting remix to Little Bit


- Two not very famous DJs from Colorado.  They make pretty good music.

Electric Fever

Everybody knows MGMT's Electirc Feel  is a great song, but here are some remixes that you may want to check out.





Some New Songs

Walking On the Moon - The Dream ft. Kanye West

- Fun new R & B song by The Dream.  Kanye kills it at the end with a really good verse.  I couldn't find a downloadable version of this song but its on limewire and probably ITunes.


- I don't know anything about this group, but the song is getting a lot of buzz around the intronet.  It's a mix of R & B and Hip-hop with a really tight clubish techo beat.  You can download this one from the website.


- Really nice remix to the Black Kids song.  The Twelves are always good for a solid remix to goods songs.  Lil' Wayne adds a pretty good verse at the end of the song.  Good music to drive to.  You can download this one through the link on hype machine.

Mashup Mondays: Red Hot Chillipop

Zion 1 - GEEK TO THE BEAT

video
Tight new song by Zion 1.  I usually don't like too much west coast rap, but this song is pretty hot.  The video is really all over the place and crazy, but its really cool.  Its directed by M.A.Y.O.  The chorus of the song is real good too.  Go Hypy.

Maybach Music Part 2

The Boss is back with this b-e-a-utiful track featuring T-Pain, Lil Wayne, and ofcourse Mr. West. This larger-than-life eargasm will be featured on Ross' album Deeper Than Rap, in stores April 21st. If you didnt catch the original Maybach Music with Ricky and Jay-Z from his 2008 Trilla album, be sure to check that out too. To download, click 'download file' above the media player and follow the steps.

Mr. Hudson - There Will Be Tears

  video
The Music video of Mr. Hudson's new song There Will Be Tears.  He's a new artist from the UK that Kanye just signed to a deal.  He kinda sounds like Chris Martin from Coldplay, but more electronic.  The video is pretty cool/weird.  Its Directed by this guy named Nabil who has done some music videos for Kanye before.  Enjoy.

Awesome Concert

video
Amazing absurd light show at a concert at some club.  I have no idea who these guys are, but its dope shit.
