#NewMusicFriday - 12/24/10 Edition

So it's Christmas Eve 2010 and I've got some presents for you... Yup, that's right - It's this week's edition of #NewMusicFriday! (the best new hip hop singles from the past week along with album recommendations and videos). Highlights this week include an incredible single from Seattle rapper Macklemore and his talented producer Ryan Lewis about a baseball announcer from their city "The Town". Also, check out "I Did It To Myself" by Ryu with a beat by Apathy that conjures visions of Charlie Brown Christmas. Very appropriate for this time of year. Stream the 9 songs below or download the whole bunch at the link up top. There's so much good hip hop coming out these days - you just have to know where to look to find it. The rappers and producers that I feature on #NewMusicFriday are keeping the genre alive and healthy. Bump this music and come back every week!

  1. Whats up brotha...when is that 2010 compilation dropping? I got so spoiled and used to you dropping regular mixes and now it's been 2 weeks+ and I'm getting anxious!

  2. I know! The whole "working" thing got my bogged down at the moment with crazy deadlines. Thanks for the comment. Can't wait until I get the free time to do this properly.

  3. I understand, you gotta keep a roof over your head. Thanks for getting back to me so quick and I look forward to a time when you're more available to keep the site updated.

  4. "I Love College" beat? Give credit where credit is due!
