First off, the picture above truly has nothing to do with this post I just like it and couldn’t think of anything special to put there for the moment. Now, there has been two, memorable, times while I have been listening to modern indie rock that have just taken me to another level or dimension. They stand out to me so much that I can’t wait to listen to them and I try not to overly do it. What’s even better about them is that the whole song is great but these parts just touch a nerve in a special manner. I call them breakdowns, some may call them riffs, I’m not sure what the artists themselves would refer to them as but it has to be something along the same lines as complete nirvana. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. Continue reading
100s – Life of A Mack
I love when this joint comes on while I’m playing Grand Theft Auto 5. It makes me want to dish whatever ride I’m in and go and jack a ol skool whip, then head over to Los Santos Customs for the pimp treatment. I like this song because the beat is so groovy and mellow. The way 100s flows on it has that pimp slang to it. Reminds me of Short Dawg. I got to listen to more of his music. Enjoy!
Black Milk – No Poison No Paradise (Album Review)
It literally feels like it has been forever since we’ve had a new album from Black Milk. Whats even crazier is that I get a new album from one of my favorite producers this month and Satch gets a new album from one of his favorite producers, Oddisee, as well. I’m kind of anxious to hear what this new Black Milk sounds like so let’s dive into it. Continue reading
An Album That Will Get Your Creative Juices Flowing
Sometimes whenever I’m in a jam, creatively, I like to throw on some music to help me move forward and get out all of my ideas. I usually needs something that’s easy to listen to, something that isn’t overrun by a heavy bassline or thumping drums. I prefer something that’s simple but the overall product may have some type of complexity to it. Luckily I had something provided for me in our inbox that helped me to get back on the right path. This album called Dust & Loops by Gated contained just the right elements. From the way it starts off with the song entitled Continue reading
5 Reasons Why You Should Listen to Ryan Alexy’s Bright Lights Dark Nights
So I was checking the inbox again this morning and listening to some submissions and I came across this beat tape submission entitled “Bright Lights Dark Nights”. For those of you who know me, you already know that I’m not a big instrumental guy so for me to sign off on a beat it might be worth a listen. So I took a chance and listened to this beat tape because I know we had posted a song from an artist that he had worked with before by the name of KADDIE LAK. So here’s the reasons why you should listen to this new project by Ryan “Ryu” Alexy. Continue reading

In hopes that Get Home Safely will provide that original Dom sound, this new joint ups the ante. OPM
Connor Evans – Ridin on a Storm ft. Vic Mensa
This joint dropped a while ago, it’s a pretty nice joint right here. kudos to BHB for such a soulful production. Vic Mensa smh.
Crazy Verse: Rapsody – Destiny
Lately I’ve been bumping Rapsody’s The Idea of Beautiful. I can help to press the repeat button when I listen to a few of her songs. One in particular that I think is strong lyrically is track # 9, entitled “Destiny”. The lyrics are so personal and I think they strike an accord with many people. I like how she opened up and shared her experience on how she grew, I can vouch for how real it is. Peep this 1st verse. Continue reading
