Bustin` on ya this Monday with a track from a Toronto based artist Dillan Ponders. This is one of my favourite tracks which comes off his album Overdose. He has another album called Numb which will be dropping sometime in Mid-November. Gotta love that sound you can bump at the right nightclub but that can double as the backdrop for when your coming back around 2am with crew to kick back and smoke one to. Could also see these tracks in an edgy movie about teenagers doing drugs and being computer hackers and stuff. However I`d rather listen to it in one of the former contexts.
If you’re a keener and are reading this right now looking for trax to put on your ‘epic banger 2013′ playlist to bumb at your pre/continuous party today well look no further.
My boy Guapo released this track earlier in the spring during our hiatus but better late than never. Another track where he goes in with relentless lyrics and beats that offer something a little more progressive.
Also really enjoy the ad-libs at the start. For anyone who doesn’t know what ad-libbing is its rappers kind of signature sounds or catchphrases they use during songs (see: Rick Ross’ sounds like a big dog woofing sort of or Kanye’s which is a nasally HAAHHHH?)
3rd World Grrl [audio https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/110750551/Antwon%20-%203rd%20World%20Grrl.mp3]
Coming out of San Jose, California Antwon has been noted by Vice as one of the rappers of 2013 to watch out for. I’d wholeheartedly agree. A bit like a less intense MF Doom flow. Also judging from his music videos and press and whatnot he’s got a jokes-ass persona (see above).
I’m writing this Tupac style as by the time this gets published I’ll be out working in the bush where wi-fi and laptops are few and far between. So this will likely be my last post for a lil’ while. Its been swell internet. See you in two months!
I know everyone’s tired of all the 15 year old kids with their snarky attitudes and “SWAG” t-shirts and girls with their Lana del Rey pictures saying how they “were totally born in the wrong generation.” This song is pretty dope though and I enjoy both these artists individually as well. Love the music hate the scene right? The flute over the beat is real smooth too. Also reckon this collaboration is a bit more solid than their first collaboration “National Anthem”.
Oye Cabrones. I be on that finished-school high. In celebration of that and to everyone who’s gonna be grindin’ it in Toronto this summer you should get educated on Raz Fresco. A young rapper out of Toronto (Parkdale specifically), with a pretty quick flow. Vice recently did a pretty cool exposé on him and downtown T.O. in general which is also worth checking out. He has some pretty dope samples in his beats as well which is always refreshing (check out Breathe).
Now that schools over for all us young’ins its time to make that skrilla so happy job hunting and wardrobe overhaul times!
Ayoooo it’s not Sunday but it is that dude. Was thinking about posting some Danish Punk/Joy Divisionesque stuff but I figured its Friday. Might as well keep it light, you know? Presenting Australia’s best known female MC, Iggy Azalea has been making waves for quite some time now. Honing her craft and then starting her career in the US she’s got a sick flow that doesn’t sound Australian at all (not that there’s anything wrong with Aussie accents, yuh feel me?). Anyways this is the first single off her upcoming debut album The New Classic. Also the line: “Valley girls givin blowjobs for Louboutins, What you call that? Head over heels?” gets me everytime.
Hope you incorporate this song into your weekend festivities,
Comin’ at ya this Sunday with Action Bronson. Coming out of Flushing, Queens NYC. He used to be a professional chef and then went into rap which is sometimes evident through his lyrics. With a merciless flow that just keeps coming at you and wordplay that sometimes makes you take a step back and say “fuck shun, that’s clever!” Action Bronson is all I’ve been listening to this week while I pretend to study. This track is off his debut album Dr. Lecter from 2011 howeve his discography is sizeable releasing at least 1 album and mixtape each year since then.
