Mixtape: M-Dot – Layer Cake

Got the latest project from M-Dot, the fourth mixtape from this Boston emcee: “The mixtape, mixed by DJ LP2 serves up a delicious helping of everything M-Dot has went through and survived in…


Panama – Told Her (Prod. Black Jab)

Panama drops his I’m-the-pimp anthem, and as a bonus, I’ve added another recent drop by him, “Money, Power & Respect”.


VIDEO: Marky ft. Josh Stevens – I Triumph (Prod. Jordan P)

Marky has been on a tear lately, having released his project Divine Intervention, and throwing out such gems as the remixes to “Cashin’ Out”, “Drank in my Cup”, and “UP!”–finally culminating with the…

EDX – Give It Up For Love (Mysto & Pizzi Remix)

Apologies for the long gap between posts – just touched down in Singapore for a little study abroad and the aggressive 15 hour time difference takes a touch of getting used to. Hit…


MV: Jay-Z & Kanye West – No Church In The Wild

The startup and momentum carrying track from Watch The Throne. Thank god we didn’t get videos from other tracks that weren’t as good.


MV: @Pusha_T – Exodus 23:1

Pusha T made a lot of references to the YMCMB crew in this song, but it isn’t apparent in the visually. Pusha T takes us through some hoods in Norfolk instead.


MV: Nas – Daughters

Nas drops the video to Daughters, a beautiful song for the fathers out there. Definitely a video to check out as this album sounds like a proper one from Nasir.


Justin Bieber ft 2 Chainz, Mac Miller & Asher Roth – Boyfriend

Trademark Da Skydiver ft Curren$y & Styles P – Phone Home

I first thought this might sample E.T. but it’s just another smoke filled song from the JETS crew and part of the LOX. Always perfect to start with music like this before getting…


Wale & Meek Mill ft French Montana – Actin Up

Self Made 2 will be chock full of hits as come to be expected. Now that Meek Mill has established his presence on the roster, Wale and him can murder tracks with a…


Pusha T ft The Dream – Exodus 23:1 (Lil Wayne Diss)

Damn Pusha T really went in with this track. Lil Tunechi went on Twitter to say f*** Pusha T and anyone who likes him so the beef has already gone viral after the…
