Head on over to their new website and download your copy now or be square: http://www.suckonthismixtape.com/. Or if your hard drive is full of porn and you...Read more
You never know where you'll find a good song. I went to Youtube to check out a video by a rapper a record label sent me the link for. Well, to be perfectly honest, it was rubbish. But then this one came on and immediately...
To be honest, I'm surprised that I'm really digging Wise Proof's "More More More More," since it's obviously very much in the trap vein and I've had just about all the trap I can stomach. (To me, trap was a cool new sound for about five minutes...
Detroit rapper ZelooperZ — who was born in the 313 and still resides there — is part of Danny Brown’s Bruiser Brigade. Interestingly, they connected via Twitter when the 6’7″ ZelooperZ was promoting a mixtape like crazy and Brown took notice. But before Brown took him into the studio he gave him a proper...Read more
HXLT is how Chicago’s eclectic musician Holt is spelling his name these days. The reason why is one of the few things I didn’t think to ask him about, but I imagine it’s to make you wonder how it’s supposed to be said, to get you thinking, to ultimately make you remember it....Read more

It’s that whole “where have you been all my life” factor, and that’s precisely how I felt the first time I...Read more
EDITED TO ADD: Around 11:30 this morning (January 27th) I was posting a new review and when I reloaded the main page I saw that the soundcloud player for this track was gone, which almost certainly means that it was deleted from Soundcloud. Perhaps he regrets expressing...
Well, folks, today we have news from Kanye West… He has tweeted the tracklist for his new album, SWISH, about which he tweeted “so happy to be finished with the best album of all time.” But what the list reads isn’t entirely clear. We see “Waves,” “High Lights,” “80 Hours,” “No More Parties in...Read more
Are you among the 60 million people who’ve seen the zany video for Psy’s big comeback song “Daddy” yet? If not, click play above already! Do it! Suffice to say that Psy is back with his crazy dance moves, amusing sight gags, and lots of general weirdness. The song isn’t bad either. Actually, the...Read more
They might be called LNDN DRGS — London Drugs, get it? — but they actually hail from California. Their music is the perfect marriage of Jay Worthy’s relaxed rap delivery and producer Sean House’s jumpy bass lines and globs of old school synth. Together, they make music that’s both modern and retro all...Read more
