More Westcoastsynthesizerbeachbumgangsta music from King Fantastic. This is the first single off their new EP SocioPoliticalPimpTalk. It’s classic King Fantastic. If you don’t know them, get familiar with them. Especially if you like hip hop, dubstep, or some weird blend of the two. Buy this song on Itunes.
I had to listen to this one. I love pizza. I had pizza tonight for dinner. Therefore, I felt obligated to listen to NatNaiel’s “Pizza” mixtape. Much like pizza, I thoroughly enjoyed it. 17 really diverse tracks from the New Jersey native, and it really impressed me. One minute, there’s this crazy dubstep beat with him rapping over it, and the next moment there’s some smooth beats playing in the background. And it all works together. I highly recommend downloading this mixtape. Listen to it while you eat some pizza. Check it out here via DJBooth.Net
I’m not gonna lie, people. I listened to an Amerikas Addiction album earlier tonight, and wrote a post about it. Just before I was about to click “publish”, I realized I listened to the wrong album. I listened to AA’s “Foreplay” EP, which is an older release from them. And it’s straight up dirty. It’s baby making music.
Anyway, this is Amerikas Addiction’s new album, “Blame It On The Drugs”, and it’s a new direction for them. The songs are still smooth as ever, but the lyrical content isn’t as X-rated. Download “Blame It On The Drugs” to drive around to, or download “Foreplay”, and play it for anyone special, just not kids.

King Fantastic is my latest discovery. Self described as WestCoastSynthesizerBeachBumGangstaMusic, this EP really sounds like a dubstep-rap group, which is awesome. If you’re a fan of either genre of music, you’re really gonna like this. Plus, you have the option to either download the EP for free or support them by buying the EP on Itunes. Whatever option you pick, just get the EP. I feel like my car needs hydraulics and 100 spoke rims to listen to it properly. I’m pretty sure they don’t make either for a 96′ (Classic) Oldsmobile Cutlass, though.
I had this song sent to me tonight by Cezar, one of several upcoming south side emcees in Milwaukee. Originally from Georgia, Cezar brings a distinct style to his flow, as evidenced by this track. As a south side resident, it’s nice to hear a track from what seems to be the last side of Milwaukee to establish artists. Also, there’s some awesome Coldplay samples in here. Be sure to keep a lookout for Cezar, who is currently working on his next project, “Roman Roulette”. Click the link or the picture to hear “No Bravo”

You will be very happy that you clicked on this link. Introducing Allen Samuels, a 55 year old casino executive in Atlantic City. Before you ask yourself; Yes. This is a hip hop video. And yes, he does follow the cookie cutter hip hop video formula. And no, the lyricism isn’t really there. But I’ll be the first to say I’ve heard worse. And his bank account is probably closer to Jay-Z’s than most (if not all) other rappers when their first videos came out. So ignore the little things and live the (or de) life for four minutes:
If you ask me who some of my favorite producers are, I will not hesitate to include Klassik’s name. He has a very smooth style with every thing he puts out with other artists, and his own music reflects that same style as well. He’s currently working on an LP, but he just released this video, directed by ¡OYE!, entitled “GoodMusic”. This track is also available as a free download on Klassik’s SoundCloud Page as well.
If you haven’t heard of Jon Frost, be prepared to be thoroughly impressed. I feel like this EP is a how-to for aspiring pop singers, almost. “Can You Hear The Colors” is a 6 song free EP sample of his album of the same name, due out at a later date. It’s everything a fun, catchy pop record should be. Many of the synth-heavy tracks on this EP sound to me like they could easily be sung by some of pop music’s biggest stars. Needless to say, many of these tracks are radio-ready, and the hooks are so catchy you’ll be singing them by the second verse. Frost also has some very credible production work under his belt, doing not only his own music, but working with The Cranberry Show on their album, as well as Rhymefest. Click the album cover to download the EP.
Still not convinced that it’ll be good? Check out his first single, entitled “The Make Up Song”:
While we’re at it, here’s my favorite Jon Frost song, “I’ll Wait For You”. It’s not featured on the EP, but it’s so catchy. This is how you write a love song.
Since I’ve basically been living inside a fireworks store the last few days, I haven’t gotten a chance to check out some new Milwaukee music. When I finally got around to it tonight, I was blown away by this track from Dee Phr3sh!. Listen for yourself and come up with your own favorite lyric.
Since I can’t sleep, I might as well do something productive, right? This is the first video from Logic and Raze’s upcoming joint project, featuring some very cool visuals from Ku Mays. Enjoy.
