Kitchen Sink Hip-Hop Edition

Kitchen Sink Dubstepalicious Edition

8tracks.com...why didn’t I know about this till now?

So there is a new game in town to find out about new music and it’s called 8tracks.comThe site is super easy to navigate and any old person can ‘craft’ a mix of music that they think is dope.  You can trade mixes follow other ‘DJs’ and do all manner of socialization nonsense.  The real kicker here is your john q public being able to craft a mix and share it; so all you cats who are killit in the itunes party for your dorm, cocktails or whatever, can gain some notoriety and find some dope new tunes ta boot.  Below is a recent hip-hop mix posted by the homie Destructomuse to give you an idea of how dope you can make these mixes come off… 

RIP MCA…

Mix Courtesy of Mo Niklz, thanks homie…I’ll have one up soon, but till then ENJOY!!!

Thugg Thursday!!!


Happy New Yeahhhhh!!!  Let’s welcome the year of total annihilation (if you believe all the 2012 hype; unlikely at best really) with open arms and kiss it all goodbye with some great music for my first post of 2012 courtesy of myself, the fellas at Basserk and Scion A/V.  Sounds pretty good; if you are gonna go out you might as well have a good soundtrack right?  Niiiice…

Now, onward and upward with this week’s edition of Artist of the Week, so thoughtfully provided by the good folks over at Adam’s World Blog…This week features none other thaaaaannnn, Ukulele playing rapper Jon Braman…aaawwww snap!!!

A couple months ago I was at an event in the city when a friend of a friend started telling me about Jon Braman. Now, bear in mind, I hear a lot of people telling me about a lot of artists, so it takes something really interesting to get my attention. As soon as she said Braman was a rapper who played the ukulele, getting my attention was no longer an issue. After what seemed like dozens of missed opportunities to check out Braman’s work, his album, Climatastrophunk, finally arrived in my mailbox. Really interested in knowing if combining the ukulele and hip-hop could work, I put it on. It was an oddly perfect marriage, at least with Braman at the helm. His lyrics are meaningful, and at times downright beautiful, and his vibe matches those qualities perfectly. Braman describes some of the inspiration behind his music, saying “being able to sing out your fears as well as your hopes and dreams is a pretty good feeling.” This week I caught up with Jon Braman to find out more about the man, his music, and what exactly a Climatastrophunk is.
