Day 311: Kendrick performing 'Poetic Justice' on SNL (Video)

Kendrick Lamar pretty much owned the stage on SNL last night, performing one of his smoothest track called Poetic Justice (from GKMC). I see Terrace Martin in the back adding his flavor to the mix with his saxophone skills. Mad talent up on stage.

Day 310: Remember when 'Life Changes' - A new mixtape from Casey Veggies photo life-changes-2_zpse804e17e.jpg

There has been some crazy news taking storm in 2013 (ex. Manti Te'o catfish scam, gun shootings everywhere, Lance fakestrong), and it's only January... at least we can rely on music to keep us at peace! On that note, Young Casey Veggies just came out with a new 13-track mixtape called "Life Changes" featuring his LA-counterpart Dom Kennedy and a few others.

It's got some really chill tracks on there. Check the free album stream after the jump...

Day 309: It's 2013, time get on that new LVL, ASAP - Long.Live.A$AP

I've grown to be a big fan of Clams Casino's beats since I heard "I'm God", so off the bat "LVL" has become one of my favorite tracks from A$AP Rocky's debut album Long.Live.A$AP (out now). I've only just begun listening to a few tracks so I have some catching up to do, but in the meantime this is gonna be on repeat for a while.

Get his new album on itunes here, A$AP.

Day 308: Big noise from Big Boi - 'In the A" ft. T.I. & Ludacris (Music Video)

If there was an "In the BAY" remix, I'd like to see E-40, Clyde Carson, and Locksmith (the lyrical assassin!) get together on this.

If an "In L-A" remix was made, I'd like to see these three on it: Kendrick Lamar, Nipsey Hussle, and Dom Kennedy; str8 fresh 2 death trio right there.

Let's see this happen fellas... rep yo city!

Btw, check out Big Boi's recent album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors if you haven't already. He's come a looooong way since he started Outkast in 92' with Andre 3000. Gotta love the style he brings to the table; still going on strong too. Overall, his new album is pretty legit to me.

Day 307: Check the aPROcalypse Mixtape for you 90's Hip-Hop babies

First and foremost, Happy New Year to everybody out there! Hope the Mayans didn't kidnap you and y'all are still alive =x

So, I finally checked out the recent mixtape that came out during the holiday break called aPROcalypse which features Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era crew. I've only listened through about half of the tracks and I'm already impressed with the sounds & samples used, lyrical vocab, and overall production of these tracks. If you thought the 1999 mixtape was dope, well then you'll be excited for this one too.

Peep this mixtape ASAP if you grew up listening to 90s Hip-Hop. This will definitely have a tune for your ears #TRUSTME

On another note, still can't forget about the sad news regarding Capital STEEZ... more info about that here. May he RIP #RIPCapitalSTEEZ
