Droop-E - Rossi Wine (Free My Mind) ft. Kendrick Lamar

Really digging the melodies of the piano keys and use of strings on this track by Droop-E ft. Kendrick Lamar. A very well-composed song all-together. Get familiar with Droop-E right here.

Day 239: Warm up with this Summer Hit - Jay Rock x Kendrick Lamar (Music Video)

Jay Rock - Hood Gone Love It ft. Kendrick Lamar

Not sure how I missed posting this music video up before as this was one of my favorite tracks from Jay Rock's album that came out this past Summer called Follow Me Home.

Track features another prodigy from the west, Kendrick Lamar. The dope beat was produced by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League.

Happy Holidays everyone!

>>> Casey Veggies, YG, Dom Kennedy, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, and a special appearance by Terrace Martin

I also want to send a s/o to my homie DrewByrd who was dj'ing all night, spinning the classic Bay/LA hits that got the crowd going. I can remember from way back when he first began dj'ing, and just seeing where he is today goes to show you that hard work does pay off. Man, I'm so proud of you homie  #nohomo

Such an awesome showcase of the new generation in the WestCoast. The only direction is up from here.. #stayfresh

Day 237: Jay-Z live at "Watch The Throne Tour" in Staples Center LA (Events)

12-12-11: I got a chance to go see Jay-Z and Kanye West while they were in LA last Monday on their Watch The Throne Tour. Above is a video I took of one of my favorite Jay-Z tracks from a while back called "Dirt Off Your Shoulders"

This was probably one of the dopest concerts I've been to so far: great transitions from song to song, awesome stage & lighting/special effects, and they did all their top hits from past to current (solo & together).

The sh*t did get cray at the end of the show as (that day) they set the record of doing that song ("N*ggas in Paris") 9 times in a row. I laughed for a bit that they actually did it but I went with it anyways. Song is mad catchy and easily energizes the crowd.

Here are a few good pics I took:, Jay-Z and Kanye, Jay-Z & Kanye at Staples LA (Watch The Throne Tour)

How can you not be amazed when you see these two together in the same building? #EPIC

Day 236: Wish I coulda gone to "Cali Xmas" - J.Cole x Drake x more (Live Videos)

J. Cole's set

Drake's set

When tickets went on sale for this concert (happened last night), it sold out within a day which is why I'm so mad I couldn't go.. But man, if I had the funds I totally would have been there. Freakin dope lineup and looked like an awesome show all together.

Man, these ads every 5 min are sooo annoying, but great footage & sound quality of J. Cole & Drake's sets in these videos.

One of my favorite tracks from the Summertime btw, when it first came out.

Go get that new Snoop & Wiz soundtrack they put together for their new (short) movie called "Mac + Devin Go To High School." Came out this past Monday, grab a copy here.

If you like to blaze and need some chill mood-setting beats then this cd is definitely for you #lightoneup

Gonna keep this one on repeat for a while..

Day 234: One of my fav's from Section.80 - "Keisha's Song" by Kendrick Lamar (Unofficial Music Video)

- Alt Audio Link

This song has so much emotion within the beat, through Kendrick's words, and through the smooth vocals in the chorus.. how could you not vibe to it?

Go get Kendrick Lamar's recent album Section.80 if you don't have it already. Probably one of the top 3 albums I've been listening to the most this year. This is what I consider real hip-hop at it's finest #HiiiPower

Day 233: This track bumps - "Strange Clouds" by B.o.B. ft. Lil Wayne (Music Video)

- Alt Audio Link

This is a pretty dope collaboration between B.o.B. and Lil Wayne on this track, but I'm mostly drawn to the song b/c of this thumper-of-a-beat they got here. This beat has that high-energy feel to it which is what I believe the majority mainstream listeners want these days, especially the younger generation.

What's T.I. doing in this music video? #random

No, there's nothing wrong with your computer.. that's just how the music video looks. This is some hippy-like visual effects right here #str8trippy

I listened to a a stream of Terrace Martin's new recent album called Locke High 2, and it's starting to grow on me. There are some chill songs that are definitely for the weed-smoker types which is right up my alley..

Day 231: Let's slow things down a bit - "Lotus Flower Bomb" by Wale ft. Miguel (Music Video)

- Alt Audio Link

Diggin Miguel's vocals on this Wale track, which is featured on Wale's recent album that just came out called Ambition. A really smooth beat right here.

I've listened to most of this album, and I gotta say it's got some pretty legit tracks and well-composed beats. My fav song on the album so far would have to be "Ambition" featuring Rick Ross & Meek Mill. Check it out for yourself.

Day 230: Very moved by this song - "The Knowing" by The Weeknd (Music Video)

Such a visually-trippy music video by The Weeknd so I had to post it up for everybody to see. This song gets very deep with mixed emotion, and the Weeknd does a great job doing this with all his music in general which is why I'm so drawn to his style #nohomo

In case you didn't know, this song is from the House of Balloons mixtape which you can download for free right here if you don't have it already: . I still got it up on my Mixtape on Blast section to the right if you just want to sample his music here. Awesome mixtape btw.

Day 229: Bumpin In My Playlist - Best of "Take Care" by Drake (Audio)


Been listening Drake's new album Take Care almost every day before it came out (got the leak!), and it still bumps. As much as people bag on most of his tracks because of his singing, there are a lot of good quality ones where he raps over awesome beats. Here's a quick playlist of the songs in my headphones:

Drake - Take Care (Best of) by Jason Yang on Grooveshark
- "Free Spirit" didn't make the cut on the album but I included it b/c it's a dope song
- Not really feelin "Take Care" but I added it b/c of Rihanna ;P

I love listening to well-orchestrated beats & drums, and these tracks are soothing to my ears. Overall, still an album worth buying though, and yes I did buy it.

Day 227: An interview with Kendrick Lamar by 2DB (Video)

One of my favorite new generation rappers Kendrick Lamar with a friendly interview organized by 2DopeBoyz. One of the realist rappers out there today.

I like the part where he talks about "keeping honest people around you." I feel the same way.. you gotta have people around you who genuinely care for you, can give you honest criticism (good & bad), and keep you in check with everything going on.. or else like he said, you can forget who you are in the spotlight.

Day 226: KD & LeBron doing some training together during the NBA Lockout (Video)

Man, I wish this NBA Lockout would get resolved soon so us fans can start watching some NBA basketball again. I'm sure KD and Bron-Bron are missing the NBA season just as much as us. Well, at least it looks like they haven't lost a step with their shot & overall skills #BasketballNeverStops

It's looking less & less likely that there will even be an NBA season this year, but I'm still optimistic an agreement will be made soon. I really hope so...

TGIF peeps!

Day 225: araabMUZIK performance at the Mondrian Hotel in LA (Events)

11-11-11 (Hollywood, CA): I was running a bit late but managed to catch the tail-end of an awesome MPC performance by one of my favorite beat-makers, araabMUZIK #MVPofMPC

araabMUZIK is known for his mad skills on the MPC (obviously) and he also has a great sense for hip-hop music/beats as well as the electronic stuff, which makes him an even more talented & well-rounded musician. I don't think anyone is even close to doing what he does on the MPC live... lemme rephrase that... no one can do what he does on the MPC.. LIVE.. PERIOD.

Afterwards I got to chat with him real quick, and I gotta say he's really cool & humble in-person. Hopefully the next time we meet, it won't happen because I'm a fan but because I'm ready to collaborate.

Day 224: COD Modern Warfare 3 Trailer - Nice creative & use of celebs (Video Games)

Saw this pretty cool & creative Call of Duty commercial last night during Sunday Night Football, and just wanted to share this with everybody. I liked how they used the "Vet vs n00b" concept as most ALL gamers can totally relate to this no matter what game they are playing.

They did really good job putting together celebs such as Sam Worthington & Jonah Hill and meshing them with the overall concept. Dwight Howard makes a quick yet laughable appearance in the end, which is kind of random but I guess every NBA player needs to do something to make that $ during this NBA lockout.

Overall, a very well-put together and funny COD ad. Man, this game's gonna be huge.. I don't even play video games anymore and I'm thinking about getting it.

Day 222: Grand Theft Auto V Trailer - New setting in Los Angeles aka "Los Santos"

I don't play video games much these days, but I might have to get this GTA game since the setting appears to be in LA!! Maybe they'll include other cities like San Francisco (Bay Area!) and make this just a California version of GTA. That would be awesome btw.

Based on the trailer, the gameplay looks like it's gonna be even crazier than the last one (more dynamic movement, cooler missions, nicer cars, a fighter jet?). Mad props to Rockstar Games for continuing to make each GTA out-do the last one.

J. Cole - Lost Ones

J. Cole out with another new music video covering one of his deeper & more emotional songs called "Lost Ones". It's crazy how he said it was shot in 2008, and Cole now decides release it in 2011. I guess it's all about timing, and he probably wanted to make more of an impact with this track at the peak of his career. Good sh#t.

Listen to it closely as I'm sure all of us can relate.. its got a message for all of us #realtalk

Another hot track released earlier this past Summer by Drake, and now here's the music video.

I really like the sounds of the drum beats, and it has such a catchy hook. I'm very impressed by Drake & his team #OVO as they just knows how to make every Drake song flow so well to all types of music-heads.

Day 214: New D.Rose Commercial - The Bull ft. beatz by araabMuzik (Videos)

I'm not tryin to drop a promo for these Adidas shoes b/c they are kinda ugly to me. I really want to focus on how dope this commercial is. What makes it dope is.. well 2 things: The cool imagery & sick moves by Derrick Rose and the awesome instrumental beat.

If you are a music/hip-hop head then you must be wondering, who composed the beat? Well, its none other than the one & only araabMuzik. I recently saw this video about him and never really realized how supernaturally-talented he is on the MPC. Check out this recent video of him below:

Watching stuff like this keeps me motivated. Still on my road to learning music in hopes of making dope-sounding beats like araabMuzik and many others beat producers I'm following #inspired

I got a chance to listen to J. Cole's new album (Cole World: The Sideline Story) before it came out, and I pretty much liked every song on the album so this is definitely an album worth buying.

If you're a true hip-hop fan, you will go and buy this album vs trying to find a free download. You can order it here at the itunes store, but I prefer getting a physical copy at the store so I'm gonna do that instead. #IsupportHipHop

Tribe Called Quest - Stressed Out ft. Faith Evans

I've decided to take a break from blogging since I've been getting off work super late these days and haven't had much time to focus/research/write. I've noticed my posts have been a bit sloppy recently (to me) so I might as well take this time off until my schedule settles. A bit stressed at the moment but listening to this music video helps me cope with it #wegonemakeit

I'll be back in 2 weeks (by October for sure), and I might drop a post here & there when I can. It's just a really busy month for me and I have a lot of other things to deal with before this month is over. Until then you're always welcome to follow me on twitter:

With all the loud music out there, I'd prefer this kind of music to be played more often for those of us who like to mellow-out... watevers tho, as long as we still have people making this kind of music then we'll have people (like me) listening to this then.

Ok, enough blabbin.. real talk tho. Ever since I was first introduced to Kendrick's music last Fall, I've been hook onto his style, sik flows, and the content with his raps. My thoughts: d00d is mad talented now and in a few years people will probably deem him a genius.

Like I said in a previous post, go get his recent album Section.80 b/c it's gonna be a CLASSIC!

- Nas on stage performing..

8/20/11 (San Bernadino, CA): So, I wasn't sure if I was going to go to Rock the Bells this past Saturday but luckily I was able to get one of my good music homies to come out with me.

I left LA pretty late so I didn't get to enjoy RTB to it's fullest but I managed to check out a bit of Erika Badu & Mobb Deep, saw Nas peform, and ended the cold night with some Lauryn Hill. Yea, it was freakin cold cuz I was wearing a T-shirt & shorts expecting it to be super hot over there. #wardrobefail

Anyways, here's a video I took of one of my new favorite songs by Nas & Common called "Ghetto Dreams." Chekkit live right here:

- Still a lot of Hip-Hop fans here as you can see...

Regardless of missing a lot of performances during the day, I'm grateful I was able to go & enjoy live Hip-Hop and be surrounded by Hip-Hop heads for once. It seems like they're hard to find around here in LA since everybody around me listens to that electro/dub-step sh*t, or maybe I need to start looking for them...

Day 201: The WestCoast rap torch has been passed to Kendrick Lamar! (Video)

Last Friday, Kendrick Lamar had a show at the Music Box in Hollywood, CA, and every top dawg from the West was there like Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, The Game, and others. There were also special appearances by Big Sean, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and a bunch more I'm probably missing. The torch has been passed on, and I'm confident Kendrick will hold it down strong for the WestCoast & put us back on top. #westcoastback

Anyways, I regret not going to this show.. once in a lifetime moment... #BIGsadface

I must say though, Kendrick is a super-talented young artist who stays true to that real hip-hop sound and incorporates that new generation flavor #bestforbothworlds

If you haven't heard of him yet then go check out (buy) his recent album called Section.80. If you're a true fan of hip-hop then I dare you to listen to it and tell me you don't feel the same way about him.

With all this offseason action I'm seeing from Kevin Durant, I've come to conclude:

KD > Lebron

Watch this recent video of Lebron playing in Taiwan and tell me you don't agree.. #nuffsaid =P


Brandon Jennings aka "Yung Buck"

Brandon Jennings is such a flashy Point Guard that I've always kept my eye on, and boyyyy he's got some range. Man, it's so fun watching what these NBA players are doing in the off season to stay active.

It seems like the NBA lockout may extend for a while so I hope we can see more of these off-court type of videos of these NBA players in a city near you. Just please don't go overseas! My suggestion: start an exclusive NBA All-Star Street League and tour the country!! #HOLLAAA

Day 198: GoldenEye Reloaded - If I was a gamer I'd get this (Game Trailer)

I remember the days when I used to be hooked on the original GoldenEye video game for N64. I would spend a lot of my early high school days playing that game at my homies house and having tournaments all day. Ahh how I miss those days; I used to be super OG at it too.. #CLASSIC

Anyways, this new GoldenEye Reloaded game looks really cool tho. I gotta say kids have it so good these days with technology advancing so quickly in the video game world. When video games first came to play in my childhood days, it was all about the original Nintendo (NES) and Super Mario man!

Nowadays, video games are way more complicated with all these different buttons & moves/gameplay. Why can't video games go back to being simple? #toomuchwork=P

Now that football is underway, I can officially say that my sport is BAAACK! (still got love for basketball too) Well, it's preseason now but I'm still really excited. In the words of Bart Scott, "CAN'T WAIT!!" for the season to begin..

I noticed that the timing of these "Educator" commercials start right when school is about to begin, which aligns up perfectly with the theme of the commercial. Footlocker & Nike did the same thing last year, and I even posted that one up here:

I'm really diggin the melodies & sounds of this uplifting yet mellow-relaxing beat, which is definitely my type of tune. Hopefully one day I'll be able to compose a beat like this.. #stillLearnin

I'm too tired to write more today so listen to this track and lemme know what you think. This song also features a cool young artist by the name of Mac Miller. Enjoy.

Day 193: It's gonna be a Lovely Day - TWDY (Music Video) **CLASSIC**

TWDY - Player's Holiday

Whenever I need to put myself in a better mood from a long day of work or get my mind off thinking about dumb sh*t, I just put on some good tunes and vibe. #MusicRelief

This song especially makes me feel so much better because it reminds me of the good times I had when I was a kid growing up in the Bay, and when this song was str8 poppin! Certain songs can uplift moods and this one does it for me. You just gotta find what your song is.

One of my favorite classic Bay Area tracks of all time btw. Hope you can vibe to this song as much as I still am. #RememberTheGoodTimes

Day 192: Just another day for Kevin Durant on the courts - @ Rucker Park (Video)

I guess I'm a bit late with this Kevin Durant video since it has spread all over the web and already made it's way on ESPN too. Oh well, I want to show this anyways for peeps that may have missed it.

Basically, its a video of KD making three 3-pt shots in a row so effortlessly at a league game (I believe) in Rucker Park. Call him #MrSmooth

Here's another longer video showing more of the game he played in:

If an NBA lockout really does happens, I think certain NBA players should team up, start a street league, and tour the country. Do it for the fans, not the money!

Check out more of KD right here:

Day 188: The new West holdin it down - Jay Rock x Ab-Soul x SchoolBoy Q, Kendrick Lamar (Music Video)

Jay Rock - Say Wassup ft. Ab-Soul, SchoolBoy Q, Kendrick Lamar

- Alt Audio Link

Here's a recent track for all you peoples who like to "light one up." I like this beat especially because it makes me feel super lazy but in a good, relaxed way. =P

Granted these guys are pretty well-known in the Hip-Hop world, I think this collaboration is a good way for these new generation of WestCoast rappers to get that mainstream buzz and hopefully spark a new era in the West. I feel like it's been a while since the WestCoast had that real "icon" in Hip-Hop. With that said, the West is coming back! #ReppinDatWest

Definitely a good summertime song #BlazeItUp

FYI, Jay Rock just came out with his first official album today called Follow Me Home and I gotta say this album is overall pretty dope. It's in stores & itunes now so go get it. So many sick beats on that album btw.

Day 187.5: More bball from the weekend - Lebron highlights from the Drew League (Video)

I heard Lebron James participated in the Drew League over here in LA this past weekend, and I finally found a video someone posted up. Here are the Lebron highlights from the game.

FYI, this Drew league is pretty popular with alot of NBA athletes; a few weeks ago Kevin Durant even stopped by & played in it too. If you check their site & read up a bit more, there have actually been alot of appearances by many other NBA players and some rap artists. I think The Game even has his own team in it.

A very respectful league they got here with some good competition, I'm sure. I should try to go check it out sometime.

Day 187: NBA All-Star Game in Phillipines - Kobe alley-oop to D.Rose (Video)

I heard through twitter that Kevin Durant was going to be in the Phillipines, but I didn't know some of other NBA all-stars & players were going to play a game there. Here's a clip of Kobe Bryant throwing an alley-oop to my favorite PG, Derrick Rose#Awesomeness

I swear almost every professional athlete has a twitter account, and it's quite entertaining to see what they are up to & talking about. As you can tell, I'm becoming an avid Twitter user. =P

Day 186: Making of "Watch The Throne" ft. Jay-Z x Kanye West (Documentary)

I just got super inspired after watching this short documentary of Jay-Z & Kanye West in the making of their new duo album called Watch The Throne. I wish I could just get into their heads to get a glimpse of their creativity when they make music. With them teaming up together again, I'm having high hopes for this new album they are coming out with. #HipHopAtItsFinest

Watch The Throne set to be released Aug 2; mark your calendars.

I thought this was a cool segment Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake did performing the "History of Rap #2" The first one they did was a while back; last year I think (linked here). I think this second one was done way better than the first.

Nice job on this JF & JT!

Day 184: The Bay & LA Unite! - Welcome to California Remix (Music Video)

40 Glocc - Welcome To California  (Remix)

- featuring Snoop Dogg, Too $hort, Xzibit, & Siven

I can tell this is definitely a 'Bay Area' type beat compared to all the Bay Area music I listen to, and I am originally from the Bay... ya know, where we say HELLA and get HYPHY #YEEEEE 

Now, I'm not sure what they are trying to show in this music video: the LA/Bay lifestyle or all these rapper/artist twitter account names. It's like everybody's trying to boost their twitter followers or something.

I really just wanted to post this song because "this is for the Westside!" Props to the old-school West for collaborating together. Haven't seen this in a minute.

Day 183: Awesome new movies - Dark Knight Rises & Mission Impossible 4 (Trailers)

If you haven't heard or seen this teaser trailer yet already, well, you're just in time to see it! I'm a huge fan of this Dark Knight movie series featuring Christian Bale, and I'm super excited for this final movie of the series: The Dark Knight Rises coming out in Summer 2012. #CANTWAIT

Here's another action-packed movie I'm also looking forward to, Mission Impossible 4 - Ghost Protocol:

I think this will put Tom Cruise back up the rankings of "Action-Stars" as this movie looks freakin awesome from the trailer. Please don't dissapoint me Tom; I'm vouching for you're comeback. FYI, this movie is scheduled to be release this December 2011. #CANTWAITAGAIN

Day 182: This is beat is a thumper! - Fabolous x Red Cafe (Vevo Music Video)

Fabolous - Y'all Don't Hear Me Tho ft. Red Cafe

- Alt Audio Link

"Sometimes I amaze, somtimes I dissapoint; sometimes I blow this paper like it's just a joint..." -Fabolous

I can't believe this song got past my radar for the few months that it's been out, so I just wanna say props to VEVO for setting up this music video and finding it's way to me =)

As soon as I heard the beginning of the beat, I knew this one was gonna be good. Fabolous has always held a good rep with me and is still coming out with those banger-type songs. He also has a slick rappin style and can get quite creative with his lyrics too. Keep em comin Fab.

Day 181: Rise above the Pain and you'll be ok - Fabolous's version of "Pain" (Music Video)

Fabolous - Pain

- Alt Audio Link

"After you wake up, everything is wonderful; and you can overcome anything you undergo..." -Fabolous

Everybody who's anybody has some sort of "pain" in their lives that they deal with whether it be legal issues, money problems, work stress, etc, but people gotta realize that it's not worth it to dwell on it otherwise the pain will just get deeper.

The way I cope with pain is to keep my mind focused, my head up, and my time busy. Easier said than done, I know, but if people can grasp what I just said and try to change their mindset then I truly believe it can be really helpful for a lot of people. Music also helps make the pain go away sometimes.. #realtalk

Some 411 for all you youngsters, this sik beat is actually from an old school 2Pac song (check it here), which Fabolous basically just ripped. This beat is so popular that even J. Cole made his own variation of it. Chekkit:

J. Cole - See World

"Six shots of Hennessy I'm still going strong; please numb me from the bullsh*t that's going on..." -J. Cole

Regardless, both rappers did a good job making a dope song with lyrics I can vibe with #staymotivated

Day 180: I breathe & live basketball - D.Will's hesitation move + Bow Wow gets punked by Kobe (Videos)

Deron Williams is one of my top 3 favorite point-guards in the NBA right now, and it's going to be real sad if he plays overseas in Turkey because of this stupid NBA lockout.

I believe in 2012 that the world will really be coming to the "end of days" if the NBA gets locked out next season as well as the NFL. Idiot owners and their greed for more money.. If we had no sports this Fall then I think everybody would go stupid craaaaazy #badnews

On a funnier note, check out this video of Bow Wow getting owned by Kobe:

"Come here little fella... shut up!" - Kobe Bryant

Kobe is just playing casually while Bow Wow is down $1K. Smh @ Bow Wow for even thinking he had a chance. No, you didn't just lose Bow Wow, you got spanked, taken to school, and spanked again after school #blackmambastyle

Day 178: I won't stop cuz I can't stop! - Chiddy Bang Freestyle (Music Video)

Chiddy Bang - I Can't Stop (Freestyle)

- Alt Audio Link

Ahhh, Chiddy Bang.. this is the d00d who recently broke the Guinness World's Record for longest freestyle rap. If you don't believe me then check this.

When I first heard this freestyle, I thought to myself: "that was so 'LA' of him to pick this beat" since electro/dubstep music is all I hear in the clubs & the radio over here these days. I'm not saying its a bad thing but rather it's more so a beat that appeals to the newer/younger generation, which is his type of crowd anyways. This is a bit loud for me personally but I can tune my ears to it when I'm in the mood #fistpump

In case you're wondering, the beat is from an english DJ named Flux Pavilion. Chekkit:

Saw it here first:

FYI, I'm not a total fan of his music just yet but he's had my attention ever since I heard this song a while back called Opposite of Adults, in which he basically raps over a chopped up version of this MGMT beat. I'll be keeping tabs.

Anyways, I just heard this new track by Nas & Raekwon today and just fell in love with this dope beat. This beat reminds me of the early 90's when hip-hop was simple & chill, and had lyrics that you could bump your head to. The good ol' days...

This is such a nice summer party song with that thumpin beat, and the chorus is mad catchy too! Whenever I hear this song, it gets me in the mood to wanna go out #ItsTshirtTime

You wanna know what's better than a 6+ min remix? A 12+ min REMIX! haha! Ok, freals tho.. the 12+ min one is way better. There is another list of rappers on this one that I'm not gonna go through, but I'll just name a few: Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, Bun B, Wale, and more. Chekkit:

I totally understand the feeling of what Drake is saying in this song by watching his body language in this music video & listening to the lyrics. I sorta feel like I've been in a similar situation before, and I hate catching myself drunk dialing like that. #ImAnIdiot

The chorus of this song should really go: "I'm just sayin, I could do better... tell me have you heard that lately?"

Day 173: Trust me girl.. you wanna be... "High For This" - The Weeknd (Music Video)

The Weeknd - High For This (Unofficial Music Video)

- Alt Audio Link

So, my homie got me to listen to this recent free CD that just came out by The Weeknd called House Of Balloons (click for a free dl link), and dam... I gotta say I'm pretty impressed with their style of music. If you like slow jams mixed with dark/sensual beats, a lot of emotions, and some edgy-ness lyrically then you'll definitely like this kind of music.

I'm most impressed with how well they've composed these songs together on that CD. I mean cmon, the vocals are freakin amazing and the beats are different, in a good way. It's like a new sound.. a new flavor, which I'm starting to like. I'm trying to be more open-minded with music these days so maybe that's helping me get an ear for this.

Don't get me wrong, I'll always put Hip-Hop/Rap as my #1 music but I can make an exception for this d00d. FYI, Drake co-signed & is working with this guy so I'm sure he'll have a "bright" future coming.

If you're too lazy to dl their free CD then listen to the streaming SoundCloud I posted to the right in the 'Mixtape On Blast' section >>>>>

I've been stuck on this song ever since it came out, and finally there's a music video for it. I gotta say, this beat is just ridiculously dope, and DJ Khaled's collabo with Drake, Rick Ross, and Lil Wayne make this song that much more of a great hit. It's definitely this year's summer jam. Everybody has to of heard this one by now.

Since there hasn't been much hip-hop news that's really caught my attention lately, I've decided to just keep it old school with all the posts this week. Here's another one of my favorite classic hits from Outkast. #ItsLikeThatNow

Need to get my mind off work cuz it's been such a hectic week for me, and this song does a good job of that. I swear if I'm ever having a rough day, I can just turn on some good tunes and it will make me feel all better. This is why I love good music so much.. this is how I cope.

I'm just starting to grow an interest in beat-making and I found this video quite interesting. It's an old clip of the legendary Pete Rock giving us a glimpse of how he makes beats on an MPC. #inspired

I really want to learn how to make beats as a side hobby b/c I enjoy music (hip-hop) so much, but I understand it's way more complicated than it is. For starters, I just got this beat-making program called Reason 4 so ima mess around with that for now ;)

"And it might sound cliche, but I'm lovin you much more each day; 
Even though me & your mother don't click, if it benefit you then I do whatever she say;

- Saigon

Saigon is very inspiring with his lyrics in this song and in so many others, which is why I'm a big fan of his underground music. Yea he comes out with the raw stuff from time to time but overall he makes such good quality songs that's meant to uplift and motivate people. If you like chill beats + deep lyrics then you'll like Saigon.

The beats he raps over in a majority of his songs are ridiculously dope, which is another reason why I can vibe so well with his music. One of my all-time favorite Saigon albums is with Statik Selektah called All In A Day's Work. Check it out.

To all them hardworking dads out there, Happy Father's Day.

Ok back to reality.

In case you were wondering, that is oh-so-lovely Arianny Celeste featured in this commercial who is one of the official UFC Octagon girls. She's grown such a big fanbase by being a UFC Octagon girl for so long and was just recently placed on the cover of the June/July UFC Magazine. Check out the cover here.

On a similar note, the upcoming UFC fight will be UFC 132 scheduled on July 2nd in Las Vegas, NV. What a coincidence, I'm going to be in Vegas that weekend (again!) but more so to relax & party all weekend. I'll probably catch the fights in one of the casinos tho. Pretty decent fight card, if I must say.

Here's a cool music video of the latest single from the Maybach Music Group album titled Self Made Vol. 1 in stores now.

I just got to listening to this album and I gotta say it's filled with mostly hard sounding beats, but there are some tracks that are orchestrated really well. Lyrically, it's ehhhh and I'm not fully in-tune to the hardcore rappin they do, but if you just like listening to good beats and are a fan of Wale & Rick Ross then go cop it here. This is the kinda music you just bump to.

I knew I recognized one of the sample sounds they used on this track; it sounds like they got it from this Lloyd Banks track: Take Em To War (ft. Tony Yayo). Do you know what I'm talking about? This is a dope song too btw
