In honor of the NCAA March Madness tournament, Rapper XV has come to play with his sweetest of 16’s for his latest mixtape, March Madness Vol. 2- Sweet Sixteen. The Wichita Kansas emcee has been in the game/under the radar for years now- and still has a following of loyal fans who just want to see him succeed. Vizzy first gained attention after the release of his twelfth mixtape Everybody’s Nobody, for which he received two awards from DJBooth.net.
March Madness Vol. 2 is filled with imaginative, topical rhymes and punch lines which fans of XV have come to expect from him. The rhymes“Fans getting annoyed/The world doesn’t know the boy/From the home of the Superman- not the Soulja Boy” from track 10, “Another Illusion” tell the story XV’s career- a hip hop Clark Kent waiting for the perfect moment to break out to industry success.
XV revisits some classic hip hop instrumentals for this project such as Eminem’s “The Way I Am,” Drake’s “Pound Cake” and 2pac’s “All About You.” I’ve been a fan of XV for a while now-it’s nice to see the man in still working! Dubbed Sweet Sixteens, there’s no mystery of what to expect with this mixtape. Vizzy is back!
The time has finally come! The fifth installment of Casper’s Marcus Morris Mixtape series is out for all to hear! It’s been just over a year since MMM4 came out which was huge, Marcus Morris Mixtape 5 doesn’t fall short of amazing either. With the production done completely by Culture The BeatSmith and Lofty, Casper is in a complete comfort zone production wise which leads to eleven amazing tracks. Casper recruits Shad, Haviah Mighty, Skitso Frenic, Sadie Marquis, Big C, Focuz, J Esho, KyleKanevil, Keno, Maverick Judson and of course his Treetop rhyming partner, Kehmak. With a few singles that are already on heavy rotation like “Letter to Heaven”, you got an inside peak at MMM5 a bit early, with the one’s we didn’t get to hear early, Casper takes it to a whole other level. The mixtape cover gives you some insight hinting that you’re going to get “inside Caspers head” which is the truth, Casper spits that “realness” no Rosenburg. My favorite’s are ones like the intro “The Realest”, “Proud of Me”, “High and Mighty”, “Let it be Known” and “Too Nice”. Check out Casper’s Marcus Morris Mixtape 5 and let me know what your favorites are.
Even though he’s in Dr. Dre’s corner at Aftermath Entertainment, Jon Connor shows his appreciation for G.O.O.D music icon, Kanye West, in his latest mix tape, #BestInTheWorld. Connor describes this project as “The Late Registration of a College Dropout who had a Dark Twisted Fantasy of 808s And Heartbreak,” meaning that he has all the bases covered in his tribute to Mr. West. From The College Drop Out’s “Two Word’s” to the most recent works of Yeezus, JC goes in over all the classic Kanye instrumentals. Evident from the mixtape title and description, Conner is truly in a Kanye “Best Rapper Alive” state of mind. This mixtape hits home for me personally because I still vibe out to all of these old Kanye hits to this day- and hearing an equally talented emcee rip apart these beats makes it a truly memorable tape. Take in Jon Conner’s BestInTheWorld mixtape, and let us know if he did Yeezie justice.
Vancouver emcee KAI Sky Walker has just released his highly anticipated mixtape, New Mind | Old Soul. Personally, I’ve been anxiously waiting for this mixtape to drop-Ever since I first heard the lead single “Dead Saint’s.” This project has been broken into several unique chapters, each one representing a different type of production and sound.
Chapter I, dubbed “Indie Bass”, consists of indie vocal samples over heavy bass and 808s, while Chapter II contains much smoother, more melodic production and vocals. This sound is labeled as “Black Alternative” – a cross between alternative rock & hip hop music. The third chapter, defined as “Trill Trap Trunk”, drifts away from the more serious tone of the first two sections, providing listeners with simplified lyrics and heavy production to prepare them for a night of fun and partying. The fourth chapter is titled “Rap Reborn.” Here Sky Walker rap over 90′s hip hop inspired production. Resurrecting samples and flows from legends such as The Notorious B.I.G., 2 Pac and Jay Z.
Executive produced by KAi Sky Walker himself, Chapter IV proves to be his best body of work to date. The project features additional production from Stevie Ross, Astor, Willie Sacks, IVN TWNSND & D-Rec as well as guest appearances from Rich Kidd, Moka Only, Soultree & Noble
