#NewMusicFriday: Return Of The Album (Part 2)

Back for the second addition of "Return Of The Album"; a little segment for the true hip hop heads out there where I list all the albums and mixtapes that I've downloaded since the first post. This is a dedication to those fans that still listen to albums in their entirety. Now of course I haven't listened to all of them yet (who knows how long that will take), in fact I've listened to only a mere fraction of them. But all of these albums I consider worthy of checking out. Most of these are new stuff that's come out this year, but some are albums and artists that I've stumbled upon along the way. I can't help but want to share all of my finds with you guys and hope that I can open your eyes to some new artists or remind you of something you've missed along the way. Keep searching for that perfect album...

Filet-o-Mix 17: Catharsis - The Breakup Mix

Catharsis - The Breakup Mix

So here's another addition to the Filet-o-Mix series for y'all. This is the first Filet-o-Mix sequel though, a follow up to the first mix I ever did in 2009, Filet-o-Mix 01: Love - The Most Dangerous Game. It seems that I'm obsessed with hip hop songs about heartbreak. They're so honest and I'm able to relate to the artists' emotions. I made both of these mixes in true clich√© breakup fashion... after two of my own breakups. I realize that I make these mixes after breakups for cathartic purposes, so I can listen to them and empathize, expressing and sharing my sorrow with the artists through their music. Both or these mixes are very personal and I hope you enjoy them or know someone who can use them as I did.

01 Now On - I'm Sayin (14KT Random Horns Remix) Ft. Aloe Blacc
02 Macklemore - Love Song
03 Donwill - Want You To Want Me Reprise Ft. Tanya Morgan
04 Devin The Dude - Thinkin' Boutchu
05 Sway - Look After My Girl Ft. Darren B (Prod. by Emile)
06 14KT - Miss U (For Lost Loved Ones)
08 JR & PH7 - I Keep On Movin' (Ft. Kaze & Edgard Allen Floe)
09 Eminem - Space Bound
10 Mickey Factz - Ashes
12 Z-Trip - Everything Changes (Ft. Aceyalone & Mystic)
13 Yelawolf - Love Is Not Enough
15 BlakRoc - Why Can't I Forget Him (Ft. Nicole Wray)
16 J Dilla - Stop
17 Donwill - Laura's Song
18 Miguel - All I Want Is You Ft. J. Cole
19 Lauryn Hill - Ex Factor

Album: Sol - Dear Friends Vol. 3

Sol - Dear Friends Vol. 3
Dear Friends,
A little while ago, I introduced you to a rapper named Sol from Seattle who has captivated my ears with his easy to love sound and laid back flow. He has released a trilogy of free EP's all of the highest quality. If you haven't heard of Sol before, please get acquainted by downloading Dear Friends Vol. 3 above and Dear Friends Vol. 1 & 2 here. You won't be disappointed.

Check out Sol's new single "Albert Einstein" performed live on KEXP or stream the full song HERE (on his forthcoming album Yours Truly).

Filet-o-Mix 16 - The State of Hip Hop

Here is a Filet-o-Mix dedicated to all (well most of) the states and cities that breed hip hop and the rappers that represent them. Believe it or not, there really aren't that many places in this vast country that hip hop originates from (just check the map above). The idea for this mix came from the fact that there are so many songs with rappers representing their city / state that I had to make a mix with one song dedicated to each spot. I only regret that I could not include them all. California and New York should get their own mixes at some point, or maybe I'll just do an East vs. West mixtape. Hope you enjoy this and don't forget to rep your hood.

01 Jay-Z - Brooklyn (Go Hard)
02 Ransom - Jersey
03 Reef The Lost Cauze - Sound Of Philadelphia
04 Apathy - Peace Connecticut
05 Termanology - My Boston (Ft. Big Shug & Singapore Kane)
06 Little Brother - Welcome To Durham (Ft. Big Daddy Kane)
07 CyHi The Prynce - Historian
08 Celph Titled - Fahrenheit 813 (Ft. DutchMassive & Majik Most)
09 Y. Luck - Walking Thru New Orleans
10 C.Stone - Reppin’ Texas (Ft. Paul Wall & Trae)
11 8 Ball & MJG - Memphis (Ft. Al Kapone)
12 The Left - Real Detroit (Ft. MarvWon)
13 Kanye West - Homecoming (Ft. Chris Martin)
14 Atmosphere - Say Shhh
15 Grynch - Home (Ft. Speedy Gonzalez)
16 Richie Cunning - The City
17 People Under The Stairs - The L.A. Song

Big ups to Philly. I miss that city...

An Important Day For Hip Hop

Today, September 27th 2011 is an important day for Hip Hop. Why might you ask? Because, for the first time in a long while, I am excited for what hip hop has to offer TODAY. New hip hop singles and mixtapes drop on blogs left and right every single day of the week just like the newspapers put out stories every second, always looking for the latest breaking report and seeing who can get the word out the quickest only to be forgotten the next day. Long gone are the days of anticipation, when you actually had something to look forward to. But today has me excited because that feeling of anticipation has surfaced once more. Today the following albums dropped and you should check all of them out. Hip Hop is alive and well in 2011.

1) J. Cole - Cole World: The Sideline Story
2) Evidence - Cats & Dogs
3) 9th Wonder - The Wonder Years
4) Phonte - Charity Starts At Home
5) J-Live - SPTA
6) Madlib - Medicine Show #12: Raw Medicine
7) DTMD - Makin' Dollas
8) Cormega - Raw Forever
9) Blu - Open (2011)

Now please excuse me, I have a lot of listening to do.

Check out Evidence's new video "You" below produced by DJ Premier

Don't forget to check out my favorite hip hop group, People Under The Stairs, new album "Highlighter" dropping Thursday 9/29.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Otherside Remix Feat. Fences (Video)

Every now and then an artist will actually make a music video for a song not based on the song's popularity, but because the song deserves a video. I know, in this day and age in hip hop it becomes rarer and rarer to find substance in this music, but I have to say that Macklemore is an artist that doesn't do any song or music video half-assed. Although I loved the original "Otherside" off of the VS. EP, I must say that the remix above has grown on me with each consecutive listen. I think it's beautiful and I hope you enjoy.

Can't wait for Mack's new album... coming not soon enough.

#NewMusicFriday: Return Of The Album

This post is for my true hip hop heads. The ones that don't just stream a song and then never listen to it again. This one is for my peoples who devour not only songs, but whole ALBUMS by the truck load. The ones who eat up new hip hop albums for breakfast, brunch, lunch, linner, and dinner. The ones who still listen to albums back to front, not on shuffle. The ones who need to hear their music on good speakers. The ones who spend more time organizing their iTunes library than organizing their life... You know who you are.

So in case YOU (my fellow hip hop fanatic) missed the below mostly new albums, get your grub on and scrape the plate (download links are included, but some may be dead). These albums/mixtapes should last you a while... since I still haven't gotten through all of them.

Album: ScienZe - Hall Pass (2010)

It's becoming rarer and rarer that you come across a new hip hop artist that really respects the roots of hip hop and really shows it throw their music, but ScienZe does just that and he does it well for all 16 tracks. He dropped a free mixtape "Hall Pass" late last year that seems largely slept on by the hip hop community. Wake up people. 

Take the video and song "History (Play By Play)" below as an example of how MCing should be done; painting the visual narrative, use of creative wordplay, and evoking emotions with a personal message. This really brings about a potent feeling of nostalgia for the birth of hip hop. His flow is honest and seemingly effortless. The beat is driving and the perfect blend of sounds. Been on repeat all day and hope it does for you what it does for me.

Video: Jay-Z & Jimi Hendrix - A Watchtower Problem (Nasty P Mashup)

Shouts to RemixTheVideo for putting me onto this mashup of my favorite Jimi Hendrix song mixed with one of Jay-Z's most controversial and perhaps best video. Now, I've never been a fan of the original beat of HOV's "99 Problems", so any remix of the song comes to welcome ears. However, not that many people have succeeded with a remix that actually sounds appropriate to the tone of the song (huge exception being DJ Roli Fingaz remix with Talib Kweli's "Get By" beat which you can download on my Filet-o-Mix: Jay-Z - The BLACK[EST] Album). However, this remix really kicks ass and makes watching the video for the song way more fun. This is a jewel. Enjoy.

Video: Turn My Dreams Into Reality

 New Looptroop Album 2011 
"Professional Dreamers"

There are days when you just can't seem to figure out what you're doing with your life or where you're going, but you know where you want to be... or at least you think that you do. The first video below is for all you daydreamers thinking about making it to the "big time" and the second video is for all my people who realize that they're already there because they are striving everyday for something that they believe in. "We've been on this trip with no end station, seems hopeless, but this is the destination". Life's a journey, so let the music convince you that you're already living the dream. And if you're not yet, then what are you waiting for?

100 New Songs For Mardi Gras 2011 (#NewMusicFriday?)

100 New Songs for Mardi Gras 2011

Do you know what it's like to have an addiction? If you do, then you'll know that you can try to quit cold turkey, but once you get that craving and that first hit, it's full on relapse. For me, the past 48 hours have been nothing short of a hip hop bender. The start of 2011 had brought me such a busy work schedule that I was forced to put all of my new music listening and downloading on the back burner and haven't posted new music since #NewMusicFriday - 12/24/10 (where I recap the best new hip hop leaks each week and some random finds along the way). However, consider this post my very strong attempt to catch up on 10 weeks of hip hop in 2 days by bringing you 100 fresh new songs just in time for Mardi Gras!

In all honesty, you will not find another hip hop blog with a recap like this. Most blogs give you one song per post and more often than not, it sucks. Here are 100 tracks new hand-picked tracks from the well known to the up-and-coming MC's and producers. This is proof that hip hop is thriving well in 2011. All the below songs listed here were offered for free on referring websites and appear below in alphabetical order. Stream all the songs as a single playlist below or download the whole bunch for your collection at the 3 links below. And if you love it, help me keep real hip hop alive and support by sharing this post and my vision.
