Day 356: In my playlist - "Drop Coups" by Nipsey Hussle (Audio)

"Every time my shit drop,
Victory for hip-hop;
Never mind my title, I’m the up and coming Michael.."

Been listening to Nipsey Hussle's recent mixtape Crenshaw, and gotta say it has a lot of dope tracks if you're into that real/raw westcoast style of hip-hop. Coming from Cali and living in LA, I'm definitely on Nipsey's music.. as you should too.

Take a listen to "Don't Take Days Off" right here. Another fav from the mixtape.

Day 355: Have you heard? Jeni Suk - Parables (Music Video)

Jeni Suk has been in my radar as of recent months, and I've started to take a liking to her amazing vocals and skills behind her own production. She's also from my hometown of Cupertino, so that in itself makes her that much more talented to be able to build her fanbase up to where it is today coming from a small/suburban town in the bay. Much props to her, and I really see her going somewhere with this.

Get a copy of 'Parables' at Jeni's bandcamp page here. Support good music.

Day 354: James Franco & Seth Rogan with their version of "Bound" (Music Video)

If you've seen Kanye's recent music video "Bound 2" he released on the Ellen show then take a second to watch this version created by the oh-so-funny James Franco & Seth Rogen.

Watch the side-by-side comparison of Kanye's video vs James Franco/Seth Rogen's version after the jump.

Day 353: What's in my playlist? French Montana ft. The Weeknd - Gifted (Music Video)

"I'm gifted when I'm faded,
I'm faded all the time;
Because I know that's when they love me,
They love me when I'm high.."

A nice collabo between French Montana x The Weeknd. I'm not a big fan of French but The Weeknd definitely puts a lot of his flavor into this track, which is why I'm hooked on this chorus.

Day 352: Have You Heard? Erik Hassle - Talk About It (Music Video)

I've been trying to get into the emerging artist scene lately as I feel there's so much undiscovered talent that needs to be discovered by the world. Anyways, I stumbled on this track yesterday by Erik Hassle that really catered to my ears. Been on repeat.

Really feeling the emotion behind this one, and the beat & lyrics flow together so well. Great production overall too. So smooooth.

Day 351: Have You Heard? Sohn - Bloodflows + Lessons (Music Videos)

Just went to check out Sohn at the Echo in LA last night, and I'm really impressed with their overall sound, amazing vocals, and emotion put behind their lyrics. This band is definitely someone you want to pay attention to. The main vocalist has a sort of Weeknd-esque type of feel to his voice & lyrics.

"Lessons" after the jump..

Day 350: Hooked on Banks - "This is What it Feels Like" (Music Video)

Really diggin this track from Banks right now.

Found out tix to her LA show at the Hollywood Cemetery went on sale last Friday for $25, and it's sold out. Now, they are close to $100... wtf. Freakin' hate it when re-sellers buy out tix just to mark them up. This is what it feels like..

Day 349: ASAP Ferg - Work Remix (Music Video)

Posting this track b/c I'm definitely putting in work this week. It's always so dam busy in the Fall; the one thing I hate about this part of the season.

On another note, this is a dope remix nonetheless. Been bumping this for a minute.
