‘Tis the season for giving and to all a Merry Christmas this week. I hope everyone will be able to enjoy some egg nog and ham while spending time with family unwrapping gifts. 2013 has been quite a year for music including Hip-Hop and I decided to present a few mixtapes that were great, but slightly fell under the radar during the year-end awards. These projects vary in sound, region, and themes, but all are pretty fucking solid cohesive bodies of work. Without further ado, I give to you the Super 8.
It is me again and today I present a few mixtapes that were released within the month. Hopefully (?) there’s a part 2 for next week but for now, check it.
It is going to take a lot to keep the city of Detroit down. A city that was once a Mecca in automobile development and hosted the largest record label in urban music has been plagued by economic strife and political turbulence. It’s been just over a week since the sentencing of former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick – who is mainly responsible for the robbery of millions in hard-earn money from his own citizens – and a few months since the entire city filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy. It is the biggest fall from grace an American Metropolis has faced in decades, becoming a wasteland riddled with depression, decay, and self-destruction.
Hello guys. As one month ends and another begins, I look back on the last few projects that came out in September including Drake, The Internet, The Foreign Exchange, and Audio Push. Go check it out.
I’m here and I bring to you five projects I’ve listened to this month so far, so read it.
WoW, it’s been awhile since I’ve written on my own little skip of a blog here. I’ve been busy with things, among those including a dead laptop, graduating college, and now working a few jobs. I wouldn’t be surprised if readers thought I died off and it kinda felt like it. But now I’m here to talk about a few rap songs I have enjoyed immensely within the past month of so. Ten tracks you might have heard or not, but are worth checking out amidst the Yeezus and Hov hoopla.
April 7th is almost upon us. It only happens once a year and in New York City at MetLife Stadium, the WWE host their Mecca in the form of WrestleMania 29. It’s the time where casual fans, former wrestling fans, the die-hards, and IWC congregate towards the squared pulpit. This is the moment where old stars are given another chance of glory, current stars adding on to their legacy, and new stars creating their own path. It is the time where long-running chapters come to an end, and new ones begin. That’s what it should be, but in the past years there hasn’t been much of a closing and more of a rehashing.
While a few matches were set in stone a year prior, two consist of rematches from the 2012’s premier Pay-Per-Views WrestleMania 28 and SummerSlam. The undercard was haphazardly put together after a stop-and-start on certain programs, leaving a few people behind while giving some new opportunities. The Intercontinental Title gets buried again and The Undertaker returns from semi-retirement to face the biggest heel in the past year. There is a lot to discuss here and without further ado, let’s rundown the card for the “Showcase of the Immortals”.
