One of the most promising up and comers around decided to release a handful of tracks which precede his critically acclaimed 1999. Titled Rejex the mixtape incorporates 14 tracks from various locations… but I’m going to stop and just let Joey himself explain:
“1999 rejex” is a compilation of tracks that didn’t make it to my debut mixtape “1999″ (obviously). I decided to put this project together because I have a lot of unreleased material that I didn’t want to keep from the ears of my fans and supporters. I also have a couple of tracks on here I did when I was 15 years old (“little rachel”, “indubitable”, and “silent knight”) and I want to show people the progress I’ve made in a couple of years. The remaining songs (“flowers pt. I”, “catharsis”, “panty raid”, “fantum” and “update”) are tracks I dropped prior to the release of ’99 as promo only. I look at “rejex” as my more experimental side compared to ’99. Putting together these two projects even taught me a lil sumchin about my evolution as an artist and individual. Watch me go from “Joey B4 DA $$” to the “Joey BA DA $$”…… If you know what eye mean.. Haha

If you haven’t downloaded 1999 yet (scary, I know, but sometimes people miss things) you can do so right here.
I haven’t been on my blog game lately. Blame my 2nd degree sunburn or blame Donald Draper and fricking Netflix, whatever. But regardless, Bramzwig dropped this *unreal* gem today. I couldn’t resist. Going over the beat from A$AP and Theo’s hit song with the same title, it piqued my interest as soon as it popped up on my social networking time wasters. This isn’t making the cut for his new project, Newer York, but who cares since you have it now. Check it out below.
Sidenote: I just found out that that there are two separate tweeter accounts for fans of Bramzwig. He’s blowing up faster than the toilet after a Taco Bell run. Jump on this bandwagon, people!
It’s been a minute since we have heard something from Chase Compton but he’s back and sounding like he never left. Not sure exactly where this will end up but this is definitely the best offering I have heard from the young spitter from KS. Download the song here if you’re feeling the music.
What. is. up. everybody. I haven’t posted in far too long. Let me kick this welcome back post off by saying this: sometimes in life I think you have experiences that really make you feel like a poor person. Currently, I’m sitting in my car in a Starbucks parking lot stealing the internet. I’m too cheap to go in and buy a drink that I don’t want. Like I said, poor people shit.
This is also the reason I haven’t blogged in forever n a day (Big K.R.I.T. pun intended). For whatever reason, my laptop will not connect to the internet at my apartment in Nola…. which I haven’t mentioned, I’m spending the summer in New Orleans. Booyah. Now this isn’t a facking travel blog, so I’m going to try to make this brief, but here are a few things I’ve noticed about New Orleans since I’ve been here:
1) It storms like everyday here. And not the type of storms we have in the Midwest. It pours. Like to the point where I’ve begun gathering two of every animal (this was the least terrible New Orleans flood joke I could come up with, Daniel Tosh has more or less covered the offensive ones anyways).
2) There are stray animals like a motherfucker. I’ve come to the conclusion that Sarah Mclachlan rescued all these animals and then set them free here.
3) There is a Popeye’s on about every corner. If you don’t understand how awesome that is, just stop reading.
4) Bars in uptown are generally 18+ to get in and “21+ plus to drink.” Open containers in the streets are also allowed everywhere. And you can go to drive through daiquiri shops and order alcoholic frozen drinks by the cup (because apparently frozen alcoholic drinks don’t fall under the usual requirements for open containers while driving).
I came up with like 47 numbers. And those are the four I apparently have limited it down to. Awesome.
Now on to the song. Krit released his album Live From The Underground this week and, as a special thank you to his supporters, released this track. I figured it was fitting I’d post something Southern, and it certainly helps that this ties in with the upcoming Live From The Underground tour that will be stopping at the Granada on July 16th (and he is bringing Casey Veggies with, so go to that shit). You can buy tickets for that here.
Well my episode of Mad Men has finished downloading, so it’s about time I wrap up my internet stealing escapades. Hopefully this weekend I can really hit the blog hard, even throw together a mix or somethin somethin.
Looks like Mr. Ocean has finally gotten that Def Jam release date and we can be expecting a new album from Frank on July 17th. The project is titled Channel Orange and the first single is “Pyramids”. This is a must hear track folks.
The opening lines are some of the more important lines I have heard in hip hop this year. I never understand why hip hop fans hate it when their favorite artists blow up or change their sound. FOH with that mentality. Anyway, this will appear on Mac’s upcoming project called Never Thought I’d Be Standing Here With 3 Chains On. He produced the beat too.
Boldy James and Chuck Inglish connect for a little contribution to the new J Dilla project dropping tomorrow. Rebirth of Detroit for all of you Jay-Dee fans out there. This goes.
New shit from Vizzy that will apparently not end up on his upcoming Popular Culture project. Shots at the label? This is some real shit right here. Popular Culture dropping June 15th. Awesome on the beat, per usual.
Troy Ave drops a little remix in preparation for his upcoming mixtape titled Bricks In My Back Pack III which will be available on June 12th.
It’s safe to say that Clinton Sparks has been on fire all year now. Another dope remix from the DJ legend. Check it out below!
