[Mixtape] Casper The Ghost – “Marcus Morris Mixtape 5″

MMM5

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.

[Mixtape] Jon Connor- “#BestInTheWorld”

Jon_Connor_Best_In_The_World.640

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.

[Audio] Tyga ft. Young Thug- ‘Hookah”

TYGA Young Thug

Young Money rapper Tyga has just dropped one of the first YMCMB/Young Thug collaborations, “Hookah.”There has been some confusion surrounding the Atlanta rapper Young Thug and his label affiliation. During an interview with VladTV, Mack Mane and Young Money’s newest signee Euro discussed the buzz surrounding Thugga and his role with the label. Mack states that Birdman “adopted” the Atlanta rapper, and he’s been running with the crew ever since.

On “Hookah”, T-Raww delivers some memorable bars over the minimalist beat, and Young Thug goes hard for the opening sixteen bars as well as the catchy hook. Looking at all of the major labels in rap,Cash Money seems like the right place for the bizarre/entertaining rapper to call home. Comment below if you think that Young Thug would be a good pick up for the Young Money roster.

[Audio] Quake Matthews ft Laura Roy- “Red Wine”

quake red wine

When we made this track I was listening to a lot of Roc Marciano and I noticed how sometimes he would just loop different parts of a sample and not even add drums. I went with that raw stripped down sound when we did this. Quake

It’s week two of Quake’s series Myth Monday’s, last week we shared Puffy 4 The Knight and today we present “Red Wine” featuring Laura Roy. Quake called The Come Up Show Radio this past Saturday from Fairview, Halifax and told us the Myth Monday series is something that was necessary since he has so many songs ready to go! Since music is so saturated and attention spans are shortened, Quake will be releasing EP’s, singles, videos, throughout the year in between albums so expect more of him on The Come Up Show. If this is the first time you’re checking for Quake make sure to read our interview and to definitely peep his latest album Corrado Take a listen to “Red Wine” and tell me what you think in the comment section.

[Audio] Childish Gambino- “What Kind Of Love”

Childish Gambino- Because the Internet

Gambino never planned on releasing the track “What Kind of Love,” a discarded single from his most recent album, “Because The Internet“. On his soundcloud account, the rapper states, “I saw that someone is selling this on iTunes-I gave this away for free since it’s incomplete and a rough. Thought it was wack someone did that without my permission. So i put it up here”.

I for one, am glad Donald let this track loose-it’s always interesting to hear what tracks didn’t make the cut for an album. As far as throw-away tracks go,”What Kind Of Love” is a solid jam. Let us know if you think Donald should have left this one on the album.

[Instrumentals] GraphWize – Graph Beats Vol.2

Graph Beats Vol.2

London, Ontario producer Graph Wize has been the sort of hidden gem if you’re not fully indulged in the local scene. Dropping part two of his Graph Beats series, fully done with the MPC 5000, MPC 2000xl and the Esoniq ASR 10. Purely sample based minus the track “Meltdown” which is an original composition with no samples. If underground hip-hop is your forte, this is an instrumental album you want in your archives. Graph Wize has been doing his thing for a long time now, working with artist’s like Lil Eto, Jai Black, Blakk Boi, P.A Knit and JBlaze out of Rochester, New York. Psych Ward from Ontario, Cyrus Malachi out of England, Apathy and Celph Titled on Psych Ward’s “Exoskeleton” remix featured on their More Slime album. Maryland Kaimbr out of New Carrollton, Maryland, Ty Nitty from Queens, New York, Black Poet and even co-produced some instrumentals on JNyce’s Vaults of Horror 4 instrumental series. Let’s just say Graph Wize is international, as Hip Hop has no boundaries as a culture. Personal favorites on here are instrumentals like “Utopia”, “Everclear”, “Deep Six”, “Loneliness”, “Meltdown” and “Click Clack”. Seven dollars to get all this fire, you can’t pass up on something like that. If you haven’t had the chance to check out GraphWize’s work yet, hit play and relax on this Sunday evening to Graph Beats Vol.2

[Audio] JD Era – “Man of the Year” (Freestyle)

man of the year

For week eight, JD Era takes to remix ScHoolBoy Q’s single “Man of the Year”. With one week away (March 21st) until the first installment of his Barz Mixtape series drops, we can only speculate on what to expect from it. If anything, you know JD Era never fails to make good music and bring that heat so we do know it’s going to be something to remember. JD Era has been making a ton of waves with his Era Friday release’s and as the waves head out further, they only grow larger. I’m saying this is JD Era’s year for sure. Take in “Man of the Year” and see just why I think that.

[Audio] clipping. ft. Cocc Pistol Cree – “Work Work”

Clipping, Los Angeles rappers

The formal definition of “clipping” (usually with respect to audio waveforms) calls it a form of distortion that occurs when an amplifier is overdriven and tries to deliver a signal that is way beyond its maximum capability. Enter Los Angeles noise/experimental/rap trio CLIPPING. Just one listen to their brilliant 2013 album “midcity” will show you how analogous their ethos and style are to the waveform distortions of the formal definition. Over a landscape of twisted, high-frequency samples of power electronics and distorted, enveloped drums, Daveed Diggs comes through with a rapid and catchy double-time flow.

It’s 2014 and we are a few months from another clipping. album (titled “clppng”). The new single, “Work Work”, while retaining the core elements that defined their music so far, also expands on its syncretic and contradictory nature, with clean and shiny synth pieces that are reminiscent of early 2000s crunk. Lyrically, Diggs and Cocc Pistol Cree are both on point; the amazing flows go really well with the glitchy xylophone-like percussion. Listen to/watch the lyric video below.
