The Dopest Hip Hop You’ve Never Heard (4-18-14)

Lots of dope music submitted throughout the weeks. I honestly have no time to listen to mainstream hip hop anymore and I’m fine with that. I would love to make this a full blown out online radio show sometime in the future if I can get the time. Until then, let’s keep pumping dope into the hip hop community…music that is. Hope you enjoyed these joints as much as I did.

Rap Raptz_Fake record label

It’s all about being true to yourself. Major labels aren’t the only ones that try to manufacture an image for you. Independent labels, in their quest to mimic major labels, can be worse at this. The people trying to create an image for you aren’t the ones that end up stuck with it when the shit doesn’t work. As the old saying goes, no one can be better at being you than you. So why waste time trying to be something you’re not because it appears that someone else is being successful at it? Even if you decide to create another persona to deliver your message, make sure it’s by your design and not one pushed upon you by others. I’ve seen this not work on too many occasions.

I put this playlist together this morning. These are the few joints that jumped out at me. I plan to go back through this week’s Indie Wednesday list more thoroughly because I didn’t get the chance to listen to all of them. I would like to state that some joints barely make these lists or not at all due to mixing quality issues. A great song will never reach it’s full potential with a bad mix. Also, DJs and radio stations won’t spin it, regardless of how dope it is. Take the time to mix and master your music properly or find someone with the skill to do it. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the list. Support dope hip hop music!

Weekly Playlist Postponed…

Hip Hop Update

I was just  slammed this week with work so I didn’t get a chance to fully focus my attention on music submissions. I tried to cram it in this morning but came to the conclusion that the artists and you readers deserve better. As many of you know, I’m the only one pulling the levers and twisting the nobs on this blog, so at times things fall off schedule. I do however promise to deliver a fresher, most deffer, playlist next Friday.

The few I did get the chance to listen to were definitely nice. I will take this time to say that I dig how Indie Wednesdays are turning out and growing. The majority of artists are following the rules and making the thread I cool place to share music.  I’ve noticed that many of you are listening and connecting with each other and that’s dope. I used to make it a practice to post collaborations between artists who connected with each other through this blog. I’d like to do more of that in the future. So if those kind of collabs happen, please make sure to point them out.

Aside from the Soundcloud playlists, I want it to be known that I’m not ignoring videos. Although I won’t make a  regular day to post them, I have been checking them out and will do some video posts next week.

As always, I welcome any feedback or suggestions from all of you.

Peace

Where Is the Innovative Hip Hop?

Devil Music

Where’s the innovative hip hop? Really? It’s right here, foo. If you took the time to turn off the shit playing on your radio, you’d see that artistic innovation in hip hop is very present and continues to grow. See, I like Kid Cudi and a applaud his personal mission with his music, but I really didn’t appreciate parts of his rant on the Arsenio Hall Show. Really dude, I understand artistic ego and all, but don’t shit on the culture by making a claim that you’re the only one in hip hop presently pushing boundaries.

See, everyone outside of the culture likes to blame hip hop for a lot of society’s  ills so it certainly does’t help when insiders like Cudi help to legitimize those voices. Sure there’s a lot of “cash, money, hoes” rap out in the genre, but last I checked, all the hip hop media talked about last year was Kendrick and Macklemore. And that’s not even their thing. Besides, Cudi seems to be doing Read the rest of this entry »
