Isaiah Rashad – Shot You Down Remix (feat. Jay Rock and Schoolboy Q) Feb12

Isaiah Rashad – Shot You Down Remix (feat. Jay Rock and Schoolboy Q)...

I usually listen to music while working and doing other stuff so when I heard this come across the stream, I was blown away. The vibe of the song immediately caught my attention. The mood set by the combination of the flute loop, the boom-bap drums, and the smooth bass line is fantastically chill. The hook is melodic and fluid. Isiah Rashad shares the remix with Jay Rock and Schoolboy Q and holds his own. Fantastic...

Cam’ron feat. Drake and Soulja Boy – We Made It (remix)...

Cam’ron decides to eradicate Soulja Boy’s presence on the “We Made It” beat. Drake still bats leadoff. She is a chicken, … he is a chicken...

In honor of J Dilla Feb08

In honor of J Dilla

The RLTLK team here have to pay our respect to one of the best to ever do it J Dilla. So check out the music we put up on the 4th podcast but since that was recorded before today, here is a dl link to one of the best mixtapes from back in the day. DJ Soul – Assorted Donuts (A Tribute to J Dilla) That mos def remix is my fucking jam!...

Jeezy feat. Rocko and 2 Chainz – “Benihana” Feb07

Jeezy feat. Rocko and 2 Chainz – “Benihana”...

Before I address Jeezy’s elastic metaphor, Rocko mentions how he cooks a filet mignon well done. He does know a filet mignon is beef not pork. My conclusion despite his verse: Rocko really can’t cook. Or Southern Blacks don’t know how to eat a steak. Now Jeezy and this song’s hook. The money in bag smell like blow and marijuana. I whip it right here in your face. Benihana! Absurd, right? So like a chef at Benihana who cooks right in front of their customers, Jeezy is prepared to put his work right in your face. I think that’s what he means. Sure. Again, play this at a high volume. Your hype Friday night depends on...

Weekend Money – “Clockworkin'” Feb07

Weekend Money – “Clockworkin'”...

Here’s how my mind processed this song 0:00 OK here we go 0:12 WTFHAPPYDAYS!!! 0:37 Dis nigga herre still interpolating Bill Haley 0:40 We gettin’ GUAP GUAP GUAP til the broad daylight! 0:51 Breaking Bad Reference OK it’s catchy as hell. The drums are ridiculous. For some reason Team Facelift and Spank Rock came to mind. Electrorap seems to have a tough mountain to climb. Off Weekend Money’s new album, Freddie Merkury....

Tiombe Lockhart – “Can’t Get Enough”...

I’ve seen her name here and there. Okayfuture has the foresight to add her producer’s name, Hudson Mohawke (Kanye collaborator), to their post. Now I’m here…listening to this song on repeat. I can’t get enough. Support! Buy Tiombe’s single at...

Kenzie May – “Skeleton Key” Feb07

Kenzie May – “Skeleton Key”...

Ummmm this is a song about a girl (reluctantly) having sex for the first time. I mean sure Kenzie gives several “come hither” looks to the camera. And she’s naked in a pool of water. And she’s some kind swirly British mix so clearly she’s confused by her burgeoning sexuality. It’s a perfectly acceptable pop tune that doesn’t leave a bitter taste in my mouth unlike past British pop singers trying to reclaim the crown. Just so yall understand me… this is not a good song. Tired lyrical construction. Tepid Massive Attack-lite instrumentation. If this wasn’t such a personal song (pure assumption), I would prefer Jhene Aiko’s livelier voice....

Foster The People – “Coming of Age” Feb07

Foster The People – “Coming of Age”...

A slight yet successful departure from the sound that establish Foster The People. Straight ahead dance rock evoking a summer feel is a great way to break the icy grip of the dreadful winter. What the fuck am I talking about? I live in Los Angeles. It rained yesterday and the whole damn city panicked. From Foster The People’s upcoming album, Supermodel....

Soulblime – “Wildfire” (SBTRKT Ft. Drake & Little Dragon cover)...

sick cover of a dope little dragon tune

Slum Village – “Yes Yes” (Produced by Jay Dee aka J Dilla) Feb07

Slum Village – “Yes Yes” (Produced by Jay Dee aka J Dilla)...

A. Not a homage to WWE wrestler, Daniel Bryan. 2. The record art is very nice. yes yes. III. No matter what the lineup is, Slum Village is still a collection of below average rappers. The best parts of Fantastic Vol. 2 were Dilla’s production and the features. It wouldn’t be a Slum Village track without handclaps, thick drums, and shitty rappers. Was the last point unnecessarily critical on a track celebrating James Yancey’s bornday? Not really in my mind. There is much worse new music out there made by folks living on borrowed time. (Okayplayer) PS I feel compelled to add the production credit in the title because the 2014 incarnation of Slum Village is definitely not the driving force to click on this post....

The Kid Daytona feat. Raekwon – “Damier Suitcases”...

After listening to Chief Keef’s dirge on SoundCloud, “Damier Suitcases” was the sun breaking through the clouds. Great production by 1up World. Nice give-and-take by the Bronx newcomer and the Shaolin veteran. Off The Kid Daytona’s mixtape Savoir Faire. Cop that...
