The Incomparable Shakespere- The World Is Yours (Tip Mix)

Nah Right x Nas Illmatic 20th anniversary

The Incomparable Shakespeare makes it happen over this Q-Tip instrumental. Yeah, he does this track some justice. Man, I need to listen to this mixtape. I want to see how each rapper made it happen.

Santana feat. Miguel – Indy

Santana is back at it. Santana plans on releasing their 20-something-eth album soon. And yes, this Miguel feature works like a FOOL!!!

Over twenty albums, though? Man. That is a lot of music.

Nina Sky – STONERS Ft. Smoke Dza (Prod. by SKY NDGO)

Nina Sky Stoners

Nina Sky doing their thing over ambient, airy production? Makes sense to me if you really think about it. Adding Smoke Dza? Yep, that makes sense as well. Does it bang? Fuck yes!!!

Lana Del Rey – West Coast (official video)

Lana Del Ray. West Coast. You know, the song that actually would be the short film type of thingie she made the trailer for? Or am I thinking about Tropico? Yeah, I am thinking about Tropico. Dammit.

I love the song, by the way. Listen for the little west coast nuances in the production. For real, for real!!!

Flatbush ZOMBiES feat. Bodega Bamz – My Team Supreme 2.0

Flatbush Zombies My Team Supreme 2_0

With a chorus that is easily influenced by Biggie and 2Pac, FBZ flips over a dope piano loop that is both hypnotic and dark. The lyrics are pretty straight forward rhyming/shit talking. I can enjoy this on repeat, though. This is my type of hip hop.

Kool Keith – Wheelchair Beast (Feat Prince Metropolis Known)

Kool Keith Wheelchair Beast

And once again, Kool Keith is back to his old tricks and tactics again. Sparse, unsampled production comes through as we tells the scenario of a “wheelchair beast” in his off-kilter flow.

I just want Kool Keith to be complimented with true killer production so we can see him actually shine like he used to. That is all I desire.

Ab-Soul – Tree of Life (prod. by Curtiss King)

Ab-Soul Tree Of Life

This song was surely getting a lot of “lack-of-love” on a certain website. This song isn’t half bad. It is actually good. I would not have that “k-i-s-s-i-n-g” bridge. However, the track is good. The rhymes are good. It is a good song. A couple of adjustments and this song could be a banger.

Swerve & SYG – Everybody Knows (Everything) (prod. Rav.P)

Swerve & SYG - Everybody Knows Everything

This was the description:

New music from Swerve & SYG inspired by Banksy’s recent street art.

Produced By: Rav.P

I must add that this song really gets into our obsession with our cell phones and technology. It also talks about how our behaviors and habits have changed because of it.

Plus, the production is throwback jazzy. I love it!!!

D’Angelo – Spanish Joint (Kero One Remix)

D'Angelo

I’ve always been a fan of the track Spanish Joint by D’Angelo but I felt like the original is fairly mellow and couldn’t find a way to fit it or any D’Angelo for that matter, into my DJ sets. So i remixed this acoustic Spanish Joint with a more vibey dance feel so I can play out. Added new synths, keys, drums, bass, and sound efx.

Thx for listening yall. More remixes coming, follow me on the cloud.

Connor Evans – Summer Night Jam [Prod. by BHB]

Connor Evans Summer Night Jam

And I must say that this works. This works at an alarming efficiency. Or maybe it is just actually a smooth track. Either or, just give it a run. You may just get with it.
