- 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.
-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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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".
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.
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:
- 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.
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.
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.
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.
