Major props to DJ Absurd for his contribution to Hip Hop and for blessing us with this dope podcast on a weekly basis. Being the last week of the year he’s hitting us with his annual Best of podcast. This one, like previous years, does not disappoint. Listen. Share. Keep your Ear 2 the Streets. Peace.
It’s not often I find myself saying a 16 year old rapper is dope. This is one of those rare exceptions. Philly’s KXNG CHARISMA just dropped his first official entry into the rap world, a 6 track EP that’s a pleasant change from what most of these new artists sound like. After listening to this, I can see a lot of potential in this kid’s future. If this is his first outing, I can definitely see bigger and better from him on the horizon. So go peep these KXNG CHARISMA joints…and remember the name.
The Vinylcologist is back and he’s brought us all the fixins! This annual mix brings us Vinyl’s favorite cuts in a way that only he can deliver. If James Beard gave awards to DJs…..this guy would have a few for all the marvelous shit he’s cooked up over the years. Major ups to @UnitedCrates for always bringing the heat. Peep the playlist below.
New music from LX-Beats featuring Mayhem, Alyssa Marie, Revalation, Deacon The Villain & DJ Grazzhoppa titled “Born to Win”. This joint if fresh out the inbox and I’m digging it. I never really heard of Alyssa Marie but I’m feeling the flow. Check it out.
Here’s another ill mix from the man who brought us the Brand Nubian “One For All 25th Anniversary Mixtape”, the ‘De La Soul Is Dead’ 25th Anniversary Mix, and the ATCQ Beats, Rhymes & Life 20th Anniversary Mix. If you’ve heard any of Chris Read’s previous mixes, you know that this A Tribe Called Quest Low End Theory 25th Anniversary Mixtape is a must listen. Shout out to Chris Read, Wax Poetics, and WhoSampled for this audible goodness.
