G-Eazy is part of that ever growing "frat-rap" genre that's taking the scene by storm. He's just starting, but already you can tell he's got a sick flow that comes out in many tracks from his Mix-tape "Endless Summer EP". Runaround Sue is one of my top favs and has a great music video to boot. He just came out with a song titled " The Coolest Job" sampling Mary Poppins. You might not like it but as he says
"How many of you rap fucks are sampling Mary Poppins and rapping in a 6/8 time signature? Take risks. Go outside of your comfort zone every now n then. It's the only way to improve."
New visuals for Hoodie Allen's James Franco released today. The video is aight, kind of a let down after The Chase, but still worth a look. I wonder if James Franco has any idea of all these bobble head look a likes.

Yeah, I'm subscribed to the Ultra Music Label. Why? Cause they pump out the best electronic music daily. Ever heard of Benny Benassi, Deadmau5, Tiesto, or David Guetta? They're all part of Ultra Music dude. And today, Steve Aoki and Kaskade dropped their new shit on iTunes. Here's 'Earthquakey People', just a crazy ass song that'll be stuck in your head for the next week. Its featuring Rivers Cuomo, who in case you know, is the lead singer of Weezer. Its just awesome. And retro videos are trippy and cool. Check out some of Kaskade's new shit, featuring Skrillex and the Neon Trees and more after the Jump!
What up fellas. I know I've been absent lately and I apologize. It's just because I've been swamped with uni excitement, I literally get no work done at all. Anyway I was listening to some jams while I was cleaning up my room and I decided to put up some of the tracks I enjoyed. Hope you like it as well.
This track is pretty famous here. I might go to this dude's concert. Depends on my budget..
..You listened to these songs growing up! How many of these do you remember? Here's my childhood summed up in these late-90's-early-2000's songs.
10. The Real Slim Shady - Eminem
This one goes way back. My aunt made me my first CD ever and this was on it. She told me I could listened to swearing as long I promised never to swear myself. Truthfully, I didn't which words were swear words so I couldn't swear if I tried..
9. Lucky - Britney Spears
Admit it, you used to listen to Britney too... yeah this one touches me emotionally. Not many know that little Britney was the breadwinner of her family since she was 7. Tough shit. Anyway this video is back when she was still the hottest thing.. Enjoy.
Round 3, so I thought we'd switch it up a bit. Here are some animated music videos that I think are kewl. This first one has been one of my favorites since I was a child, and to be honest, I'm still a little confused about some parts, but I still love it. Its cool to know that Mike Shinoda (the pianist and rapper) and Joe Hahn (the DJ), met at art school. Know wonder all of their music videos are epic. Have to admit, I lost interest after they turned mainstream with Minutes to Midnight.. but enjoy 'Breaking the Habit' and a couple more awesomely animated music videos after the Jump:
When's the last time someone you loved thoroughly fucked with you? When's the last time someone left a couple scars on a place under your skin? Love can suck, and everybody's been there. Well as your therapist would say its not good to keep it all inside, so let it all out. This playlist is composed of songs that say 'fuck you!' to that certain someone. If you enjoy rock pop and punk, you should enjoy it. Read more for the playlist:
You'd be surprised how little of the songs today aren't originals. When you count the big artists of today's samples the numbers are gross: Lady Gaga 30, Chris Brown 60, Kanye West 254, and Lil Wayne has sampled 380 songs. The why is obvious: It's cheap and the kids of today won't know a beat from a song that was popular 20 years ago. Are DJ's running out of beats?? Here are some songs that you would have never guessed were taken. See where Mac Miller, Daft Punk, Lil Wayne and more get their beats, and who even sampled Yoko Ono after the Jump!
Jay-Z & Alicia Key's sample of from 'The Moments - Love on a Two Way Street' from 1968.
Sample appears at 0:12 till End Sample starts at 0:00 >SAMPLED>
Yigi just finished his first week while I just had the busiest Mid-term week of my life. And after an additional day of traveling 4 hours by car and 6 hours by train, I'm ready to enjoy my fall break. And get sleep again. I've got a couple tracks that are new, and a couple more posts coming up so stay tunedddd.
Enjoy releases by Mac Miller and Skrillex and more:
First here's Mac's cover of Fallin' by Alicia Keys. Didn't quite make the cut on Treejay's mixtape but hit the web recently. Light one upp.
