Day 299: Get familiar with Joey Bada$$ & watch out for that "Pro Era" (Video)

Amongst a lot of young hip-hop artists emerging onto the scene lately, Joey Bada$$ is on my radar as being the next one on the list to break out. He already has a growing fan base in the NY scene and continues to gain fans in other parts of the world (his music's reached me all the way west in LA).

Btw, this is one of my top tracks from his mixtape that came out in early Summer of this year called "1999". Take a listen to the whole mixtape and you'll see how each track brings back that 90's feel. I like how he's acclimating this in his rap persona and what makes him sick is his creative wordplay. I grew up as a 90's hip-hop head, so his style definitely appeals to my ears. Artists like this is what keeps me believing that hip-hop will reign supreme again like the golden times back in the 80s-90s.

Watch out for his new mixtape called "Pro Era" scheduled to drop on Dec. 21st. Looking forward to that one for sure.

Day 294: Say no to 'Bath Salt'.. just watch & listen to it - A$VP Mob (Video)

Took me a few listens but this song grew on me. Probably one of my favorite tracks on the A$AP Mob mixtape called Lord Never Worry.

I like the way they mix the lyrical wordplay with the on-n-off drum beats. It's goes from smooth to bumpin to smooth again & repeat; pretty fvckin creative.

Day 293: Relax to some 'Cherry Wine' - Nas x Amy Winehouse (Video)

"I want someone who like the champagne I like,
My A-alike;
Someone to talk me off the bridge any day or night,
She teach me how to live, she ain’t afraid of life."
- Nas

One of my favorite good-felt tracks from Nas' recent album, Life is Good.

Day 291: Adidas Basketball presents 'The Return' feat. D.Rose (Videos) **Updated**

Episode 1: Belief

Check out this awesome webiseries about Derrick Rose and his road to recovery after he went down during the NBA playoff in Game 1 vs. the 76ers.

This is why I respect D.Rose not only as an NBA player but also as an athletic individual & true competitor who never gives up. Drive, motivation, and passion is all you need to get anywhere in this world.

Check out the two three other webiseries episodes after the jump... **Updated**
