Brooklyn Native Dillon Cooper drops a hot mixtape for the real heads. It’s gritty, grungy, bluesy, and as NY as it gets. Take it for a spin. The mixtape is dedicated to the late in-line skater Brian ‘Cozmik’ Scott who was shot by a stray in front of a Brooklyn Coffee Shop. Here’s the State of Elevation video that inspired this post.
Probably my favorite Carolina video to drop this year – no bullshit. Tigo B‘s track is a definite salute to the female gender. A laid back flow over a jazzy Bad Piano beat, and a Sequence chorus that fits almost too perfectly with the track, I’m impressed. Also eager to see how he pushes what seems to be the beginning of a killer career. It’s good to see a Carolina Artist take the time to hone their style and I’m hoping Tigo B sticks to this new model. Give it a listen, don’t just take my word for it.
This is undeniably one of the hottest mixtapes to drop this year. Mississippi’s Tito Lopez is right at the top of my list of up and coming artists and I can only hope he achieves all the success he so rightly deserves. Impeccabaly produced and mixed the tracks just seem to blend perfectly. The album just rides.
Lee Bannon killed it last year, producing tracks for most of the acts that will be stealing the scene this year. This mix tape is monstrous, and hella wavy, with a nice dark undertone. If your a fan of hard hitting, relentless beats and real trappy high hats this is the tape for you. Features from Chuck Strangers and Kirk Knight of Pro Era, Rockamouth & MVTT STOOPS.
With the wealth of material surrounding Decon Records artist Alexander Spit‘s new release ‘A Breathtaking Trip To That Otherside’ I feel no need to make an attempt at trying to explain why you should be listening. I held off posting this a couple days just for that reason. If you’re in LA get to his Release Party Tonight @ The Virgil on Santa Monica BLVD. Spit also linked up with The Hundreds to release some limited edition long sleeve tees, grab yours by purchasing the limited Deluxe Set below. Nothing left to do but Press play, download and share.
Probably the most highly anticipated mixtape to drop so far this year. Indigoism is the Freshman effort from The Underachievers Issa Dash & Ak, the new members of Flying Lotus‘ label Brainfeeder, released with the support of 10 Deep.
