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

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
Sample to Drake’s Wu Tang Forever & Pound Cake
I’m just in the mood to listen to some samples this morning. Two of my favorite songs from Drake’s Nothing Was The Same contains samples that I wanted to listen to just to kind of see how they were flipped by Noah ’40’ Shebib & Boi1da. The first of which comes from Wu Tang Forever which was Continue reading
5 Samples That Are Being Played On Repeat In My Head Right Now
On most days if you were to scroll through my “Top 25 most played” playlist on my pod you would notice that there is like maybe 5 or 6 hip hop songs up there. With that being said I think that the reasoning behind my playlist being like that is because my quest for different music usually starts with a hip hop sample and that leads me to somewhere else. But sometimes I have those days when I just can’t get those dope ass samples out of my head. It may be a whole song playing in my mind or a 5 second loop. Today is one of those days and I just wanted to share with you all what samples I have replaying in my head at the moment. Continue reading
Sample to Big Boi’s “Tangerine”
While I was going through my music today on the search for a sample from another artist I awkwardly came across the sample to Big Boi’s “Tangerine”. I instantly remembered what song I heard the sample used in because that Tangerine is such a groovy track, especially Tip’s feature. So peep this sample and Big Boi’s song. Continue reading

Kanye West – Yeezus (Album Review)
Kanye West’s status has risen and he’s in the public eye even more now than ever, so let see what’s happened to him musically.
1. “On Sight”
Satchford: With Daft Punk on the beat, I knew Tron would come to mind. This is some futuristic, do the robot on a motorcycle type music. That soul sample that comes in is crazy and the intro verse set it all up that Yeezy season has come again. Its different, but im digging it.
Yeezy season approaching
Fuck whatever y’all been hearing
Fuck what, fuck whatever y’all been wearing
A monster about to come alive again
Soon as I pull up and park the Benz
We get this bitch shaking like Parkinsons
S.G.: I’m not feeling that sound at the beginning of the song, it’s annoying. I like the soul break featuring the Holy Name of Mary Choral Family. The rest of the song seems kind of choppy and it doesn’t really provide a persistent rhythm. Yet I appreciate Kanye’s attempt to bring something different to the game.
2. “Black Skinhead”
Satchford: The overall feel of this reminds me of the african performance during Coming To America. Some true tribal music. Love Lockdown? You hear that yelling in the background? He spazzed on this. The SNL performance was dope too.
Middle America packed in
Came to see me in my black skin
Number one question they asking
Fuck every question you asking
If I don’t get ran out by Catholics
Here come some conservative Baptists
Claiming I’m overreacting
Like them black kids in Chiraq bitch
S.G.: I like how this song starts out similar to one of those songs that they would play at the beginning of basketball games.
They see a black man with a white woman at the top floor they going to try to come to kill King Kong
I enjoy the chorus, it’s got a nice build up to it. Those drums are hitting so hard, definitely Rick Rubin inspired. Continue reading
OverDoz – The Funktion
I can’t stop bumping this joint. My favorite part is when they do the pauses and you hear the people yell “Whaattt” and of course produced by THC!
