Big shoutout to my homie from high school back in Los Angeles Clockwork who just threw together this track thats being heralded as the first summer jam by the likes of Stereogum, NYMag, and more...#1 on HypeM suckas. And generally speaking I'm sick of mashups, but once in awhile, somebody throws together two tracks that make a whole new beast....this one kills it...check it out at fuckyeamashups
I just finished a big newspaper article, front page of the NYTimes Arts Section, about Weezy, jail, and his Young Money crew. Then my british roommate sends me a little rap by them. Posting it up -- for the record, not because of Drake, the biggest Canadian Celebrity since Celion Dion -- but because this is new rap music, and its alright.
