October Beats

These last couple months have been amazing, sooooo much good music coming out…. Here are a few things that stand out to me.

If you haven’t heard of Kendrick Lamar yet, do yourself a favor and check out his new project called O.D. (Overly Dedicated), available on iTunes for $5.99 or for free download for you cheap or broke people, lol….. Filled with melodic hooks & soulful production it creates the perfect soundtrack for Kendrick to expose his soul.  All of the songs on O.D. are really, really amazing, but if I had to name the standout cuts I’d say Ignorance is Bliss , P&P 1.5, “Alien Girl, Opposite Attracts &  Barbed Wire. Mark my words…. Kendrick Lamar is the truth, the future of hip-hop.

Black Milk’s Album of the Year may very well live up to its name as he had stepped up his beats and rhymes even more as of late and has got some dope features (Detroit MC’s Royce Da 5’9, Elzhi, Danny Brown and more). Also, for all you Vinyl Heads out there, order the vinyl online. The 2-LP is pressed on pristine clear vinyl, and packaged in an embossed jacket, with a code for a free digital download included. make sure to check out and cop that album, it’s not to be slept on!

So everyone is probably already aware of Kanye West’s “Good Friday,” but I’ll still touch upon it quickly for those who may not have. Every Friday for the last few weeks, Kanye has been releasing a new song, available for free download. Full of some dope guest appearances (Jay-Z, Mos Def, Raekwon, Pusha T & more) and genius production, these collabs have been nothing short of amazing. Make sure you check those out. Also in other Kanye/G.O.O.D. Music news, Ye has recently signed Pusha T (of the Clipse) and Mos Def to his G.O.O.D Music label. Kanye West & Jay-Z will be dropping a five song EP on November 23rd called “Watch The Throne,” and Kanye’s fifth solo album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, is supposed to be dropping that same week. Kanye has stated via twitter that some of the G.O.O.D. Friday songs will be on his new solo album. With additional production from the RZA, No I.D., Madlib, and Pete Rock, I’m REALLY excited about this…. Kanye’s new album is gonna be crazy!

Till next time … I’m out!
