So I slept on this one. A friend of HotLeaks, Cato, dropped his anticipated mixtape on the 20th, and I downloaded it right away, but it just so happened to fall on a day when I was busy as hell. This meant that I downloaded the zipped filed, but never unzipped it, so it never ended up in my iTunes. The sound HiPoP is really high energy, and a lot of the tracks have an electro infused feel. Since his Nite Owl tape, I feel like we've heard Cato grow as an artist. His flow is getting tighter, and his sound is getting bigger, which is dope. Overall, a solid mixtape, so definitely check this one out. Enjoy some of my favs, then cop the whole tape below.
Just as a crazy cold snap hits my town, and the first snowfall warning comes in effect, Radical Something brings back the warmth of the summer with this great new track. As always, Josh blesses us with amazing vocals, Red puts together a beat that is unbelievably catchy, and of course, Loggy kills the flow. Enjoy this one, and let it warm you up a little bit.
**Update: Radical Something dropped the DL for a "holiday gift", and I'm not complaining. I love this track**
I'll be honest, Camp disappointed me. Not that it was a bad album, it just wasn't as great as I thought/hoped it was going to be. Maybe my bar was set too high for Donald, but I expected some more gold like Freaks & Geeks. Anyway, the moral of my little story is that this freestyle reinvigorated some faith in Gambino. He goes hard on the Imma Boss beat, and kills it. I feel like Childish Gambino's lines and flow fit a lot better on hard beats, as opposed to some of his softer beats (like those on Camp). Check out the freestyle above he did for SB.TV.
Moosh & Twist drop some brand new visuals for one of my favorite tracks off their tape, The Welcome Mat. The video is extremely well done, and it fits the mood of the track perfectly. Also, I'm pretty sure this is the first (that I've seen at least) OCD video that HASN'T been shot by Rex Arrow. Anyway, great track that now has a great video. Enjoy it.
Alright, I'm back. Sorry for being MIA for the last few days, but I was doing a ton of family stuff, so I haven't actually touched my computer in about 3 days. To start you back, here is some fantastic new Sol. It's a great new single off his upcoming mixtape, Your Truly, which from the sounds of these tracks he has been releasing, is going to be dope. Enjoy.
