[New Tunes] K+ x Kilo Kish

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Kay.

If you couldn’t tell by my scream, I’m a big fan of the curly haired cutie. Today Kilo Kish drops the anticipated mixtape, K+. More conversation/sung songs on eclectic, smooth  beats continues from her first release, HomeSchool EP. She brought a couple of guests along including Earl Sweatshirt, Flatbush Zombies, A$AP Ferg, Chidish Gambino and others. I met her late last year at a Flatbush Zombies show and she’s really a sweet talent. It’s only right I tell you guys about this Brooklyn girl. (If you didn’t know)

[iTunes Snatch] Ryan Leslie x Carnival of Venice

ryan

The wonderful Ryan Leslie is back for his fourth studio album/documentary,  Black Mozart and from the sounds of the first single,  “Carnival of Venice,” I’m pretty excited to hear what R. Les has in store for 2013. The track is pretty dope; produced by !llmind, the black & white visual of Ryan Leslie’s lifestyle (shot in Vegas) matches perfectly with the record and flow. That lawsuit had to  put a little more pep in homie’s step.

[Bars of the Day] Money Trees x K. Dot xx Jay Rock

I’ve been waking to this song for some days now and it’s so necessary to be today’s pick. Last night during the last Presidential debate, one of my followers mentioned Mitt Romney saying “you just lost another debate, ya bish” so it was only right I quoted Kendrick ,“A silver spoon I know you come from, ya biishh.” (BTW Please vote, don’t fall into the art of peer pressure when it comes to “not caring” about your future in this country/world because you do count and WILL be affected.) With that being said, here’s los bars:

Hot sauce all in our Top Ramen, ya biiishh (ya biiish)
Parked the car then we start rhymin’, ya biiishh (ya biiish)/
The only thing we had to free our mind (free our mind)
Then freeze that verse when we see dolla signs (see dolla signs)/
You looking like an easy come up, ya biiishh (ya biiish)
A silver spoon I know you come from, ya biiishh (ya biiish)/
And that’s a lifestyle that we never knew
Go at a reverend for the revenue/

Besides me loving every song in the movie, this one gets a lot of repeats. This record is one that screams relative situations in our culture. Hustle by any means necessary. Jay said, “if I need it, imma get it however, God help me.” Banks shouted, “I die for a bill, believe in the dolla’, for the chips, anyone gets it, even Estrada.”  And K. Dot explains it in a song with the most nonchalant, but straight-forward attitude with a hook letting us know a dollar can easily influence a decision.

It go Halle Berry or hallelujah
Pick your poison tell me what you doin?/
Everybody gon’ respect the shooter,
But the one in front of the gun lives forever/
And I been hustlin’ all day, this a way, that a way
Through canals and alleyways, just to say/
Money trees is the perfect place for shade and tha’s just how I feel
A dollar might, just fuck your main bitch that’s just how I feel/
A dollar might, say fuck them niggas that you came with tha’s just how I feel
A dollar might, just make that lane switch tha’s just how I feel/
A dollar might, turn to a million and we all rich tha’s just how I feel

Shouts to DJ Dahi on the beat and Jay Rock‘s verse was cool. Gotta appreciate the way Money Trees explains the motive of the situation in “Art of Peer Pressure.” I am grateful for artist who make all of their music connect and Kendrick is so amazing at telling his story in a way that you must listen to it all to circle back to the connections so it can hit you like, “ohhhhhhh.” (Not saying other artist don’t; if you listen to Kendrick like I do, you know what I mean)  But I mean what do I know? I just live this hip-hop/music shit.

tha’s jus’ how I feel.

[iTunes Snatch] Demonstrate x JoJo

Well damn, JoJo. Maybe a week ago I was singing Leave (Get Out) with @StefLove_ and we were saying how JoJo had the tunes. From pop and AIM chat away messages, JoJo and OVO’s 40, colab to make a really adult sultry and seducing track for JoJo’s third album, Jumping Trains. Very R&B. A Ciara, Kelly Rowland, Mya type of feel, but that’s just soulful JoJo. Definitely something to throw into your sexy time playlist.

Thanks 40.
Thanks Jo.

A BHBK Summer

The good folks at BarrelHouseBklyn bring you another summer filled with great music, moguls in the making, jawns, and turkey burgers. I mean, sounds type live to me. June 16, the Brooklyn boys will host the 2nd Annual BHBK Cookout and I’m sure you’d want to be in attendance. Where exactly? You have to RSVP for the location. (Yeah, they’re cool like that) But hurry, it will be closing soon! Bring ya bellies, shorts, and RayBans. Most importantly, pack a good vibe. Spread love the BHBK way.

Shouts to the man with the fitted and the cam, BHBK’s own, Slick Jackson providing a glimpse of what this year’s cookout will have in store.

You excited?……. you excited.

[Watch Out Now!] Freddy Hefner

From Slauson ave to NYC, this LA bad girl bares more than a pretty face and hair pass her derriere . Freddy Hefner carries a raunchy style of singing and rap (coined Strap) along with other glam, . Already releasing her EP Goodluck almost a year ago, @FreddHeads is turning it up with her latest single “Downtown” (below). Produced by PHC’s Justin Rose (stay tuned) this record is one of my favorites right now actually. The sound is smooth with sexy lyrics and a catchy flow. Not to mention the chorus is catchy as well. Miss. Mermaid Gang is moving in on some bangers this summer so I’d advise you all to keep an ear out.
