Yeah Jets lost. Eh, #sports. Still got Nadal in the Aussie Open so I’m okay. Shoutout to people who watch tennis. Been slacking off on P&P lately so ready? Blog that, blog that, blog that. Follow me on Twitter. Friend me on Facebook. Call me. I just put out a message on Twitter asking for some submissions. Instead of filtering shit out, I decided to just post what I got and let you guys decide. Hit the comments section and let me know what you think stands out. Or, if you have no opinion at all, don’t leave a comment. Righhhht right? No, but seriously, leave comments all the time.
I’m liking this one. The style is kind of like that early Kid Cudi style, but different enough to not be jacking that early Kid Cudi style. You know what I mean? Yeah, you do.
Kardi says: This’ll probably be the track that you queue up, to tell your friends that you knew about me ‘fore I blew up.
Andrre. 2 r’s. The first one is for Andre. Second one? Nobody knows. This dude’s a little out there, but I kinda love it. 23 year old from Montreal doing his music thing with no help from anyone. Fuck a label. Add an “r”. We’re good.
Retro dance + hip-hop = this. Futurecop!’s currently untitled EP is being released on March 29th.
I’ve been hearing J.Nolan since early in my blog years (Ooh Jan 2009). He’s got heart, and he’s always solid, but I’m still waiting for him to take it to the next level and establish himself as something completely unique. These days, everyone raps, and standing out is the hardest part.
I know nothing about these guys except that they’re from Minneapolis. This track kind of blends a lot of the elements that have been popular in indie music lately, but it fails to engulf itself in any of those sounds or any new sounds, making it a pretty generic sounding indie track. 2011, what’s up?
Pretty cool beat, subtly flirting with those “For What It’s Worth” notes. Would’ve liked to hear the vocals sharpened up a little.
DJ Jacks Green is a 22 year old out of Portland, Oregon and for this track he linked up with Geo of the Blue Scholars. He says: “Lately I’ve been experiencing a wide array of emotions concerning what’s next for me in life. I can’t be sure.” I feel that.
Ok then. Not even sure if I got the artist name right on this one, but @SteelTippedDove sent it over, and I dig it. This is that underground hip-hop with a little emo spashed in, all to be overtaken with industrial, experimental production. Nothing casual about it. Reminds me a little of Sole.
Smoked weed outta Sprite cans, fuck your pipe. This one is from Seattle artist Sol and you can get his Dear Friends Vol II EP here. His full album Yours Truly will be out soon.
Strings! Strings in beats never get old. That’s why they call it classical. Yeah, it is. In the past 6 months Roosh has opened for XV, Curren$y/Big KRIT/Smoke DZA (Smoker’s Club Tour), Juvenile, Bun B, Chiddy Bang, The Cool Kids (this past Thursday and Friday), and he’s doing some upcoming TX and Oklahoma dates with Mac Miller. Keep up with him on Twitter at @RooshWilliams.
