Amerikas Addiction – Lights mp3

Take a minute to check out Amerikas Addiction’s newest single “Lights”. Even though this track will not be on AA’s highly anticipated album, “The Key”, dropping on September 11th, 2012, it provides a good idea of what we can hope to hear. Preliminary info on “The Key” includes production by big names like:

Brandun Deshay (Danny Brown, Mac Miller, Casey Veggies, Curren$y, Dom Kennedy)

Roc N’ Mayne (LEP Bogus Boys, Meek Mill, Bun B, Raekwon)

DJ Pain 1 (Young Jeezy, Meek Mill, Chuck D, Gucci Mane, Kirko Bangz)

Paul White (Danny Brown, Homeboy Sandman, Guilty Simpson)

Be on the look out for Amerikas Addiction – more to come soon!

www.enliten.me

Be sure to check out Part 1 of my “Artists To Watch” here. The rest goes like this:

Cyhi Da Prynce

Kanye’s most recent addition to GOOD Music, Cyhi is almost guaranteed to blow up. Still waiting on Big Sean’s album though.

Mixtape

Kevin McCall

An initial afterthought on Chris Brown & Tyga’s “Fan of a Fan” mixtape, Kevin McCall out-shined both headliners. He also is deep in the producing/writing game with hits like CB’s “Dueces” and Big Sean’s “What U Doin”.

Pac Div – It’s On mp3

Pac Div feat. Dom Kennedy, cARTer & Chip Tha Ripper – Don’t Forget the Swishers mp3

Honorable Mentions

Cory Gunz/Lil Twist

Young Money’s representatives this year. Gunz definitely has the DNA to make it in the rap game. And I still think of this clip from The Carter Documentary whenever I hear Lil Twist. These 2 will be big over the next few years.

Lil B

With song topics ranging from Justin Bieber to Jesus Christ to Ellen Degeneres, I still haven’t figured out Lil B. I don’t know how many times I’ve said I’ll never listen to another of his tracks…

Vado

He may of turned down XXL, but he can’t turn down my list! Honestly, I haven’t listened to enough of his music to put him any higher.

Diggy Simmons

Dude definitely has skills – must be in his genes. But he’s kind of like the Bieber of rap for me. Plus, AT&T commercials already?!

Sam Adams

I wish there were more artists like Sam Adams going in on house/electro beats, but this video made me have to drop him down the list.

Mad Libs

www.enliten.me

Adlibs have definitely become very popular in the last few years. OJ Da Juiceman is a great example of this; I even use his signature “aye aye oookay” as my ring/text tone: here. These signature adlibs have become so influential, there have even been disputes over who originally created them. A few years ago OJ and Soulja Boy briefly beefed over the use of “Aye” in the track “Gucci Bandana”.

OJ Da Juiceman vs. Soulja Boy: “Aye”

More recently, I’ve noticed a few slightly less high-profile adlibs being used by multiple artists. Who was the first to claim these in questions? I’ll let you decide:

Jae Millz vs. Trey Songz (and others): “Lego”

Jae claims “Lego” here.

Trey uses “Lego” in his new single with Nicki Minaj here.

Drake vs. Usher: “Yeah Man”

Drake claims “Yeah Man” way back in ’07 here.

Usher’s recent use in “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love” here.

MP3s for your consideration:

Soulja Boy feat. Gucci Mane & Shawty Lo – Gucci Bandana

Jae Millz – I’m Back

Trey Songz feat. Nicki Minaj – Bottoms Up

the remix is good too: Trey Songz feat. Gucci Mane & Wiz Khalifa- Bottoms Up (remix)

Drake – Closer To My Dreams

Usher feat. Pitbull – DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love

Artists To Watch ’10-’11

www.enliten.me

Here’s the list for this year. The only qualification is that you can’t be on my list from last year. That means your name can’t be Tyga, KiD CuDi, Charles Hamilton, Drake, Mickey Factz, Jae Millz, Wale or Willy Northpole (a pretty decent list). I’ve included some kind of demonstration for each artist, which could be a mixtape, mp3 or video. In no particular order:

Wiz Khalifa

One of the best albums of last year:

Wiz Khalifa – Flight School (mixtape)

Big Sean

Big Sean destroys Bangladesh/Gucci Mane’s ‘Lemonade’ beat:

Big Sean – Supa Dupa Lemonade Freestyle

B.o.B.

I know I just posted this but:

B.o.B. – May 25th (mixtape)

Mike Posner

This was one of my ‘Best Mixtapes of 2009‘:

Mike Posner – One Foot Out The Door (mixtape)

J. Cole

I gotta admit – I’ve been sleeping on J. Cole this past year. Check this out though:

J. Cole – The Warm Up (mixtape)

Chip Tha Ripper

Check out an artist from Cleveland that’s not named CuDi:

Chip That Ripper – The Cleveland Show (mixtape)

Nicki Minaj

Currently, she is the only relevant female rapper. Here is the new video with Mariah Carey:

Mariah Carey feat. Nicki Minaj – Up Out My Face

Jay Electronica

Could be the future of music. Here are some exhibits to demonstrate:

Jay Electronica – Exhibit A (Transformations)

Jay Electronica & Mos Def – Exhibit B (snippet)

Jay Electronica – Exhibit C

Short Dawg

I gotta mention another Young Money artist since I had three on the list last year. Check out some singles:

Short Dawg feat. Tyga & Lil Wayne – I Just Wanna

Young Money feat. Short Dawg – Pass The Dutch

Lil Wayne feat. Short Dawg & Gudda Gudda – Break Up

XV

Until his next mixtape, ‘Vizzy Zone’, drops…:

Kane Beatz

www.enliten.me

I’ve been a fan of Kane Beatz‘s beats since first hearing ‘Spaceship‘ by Treal on Myspace years back. You should check it out; it’s a really catchy beat. Recently, Mr. Beatz is more famous for making the beat for ‘Bedrock‘ by Young Money and Lloyd (also very catchy). Check out a few other songs he’s produced over the past few years including his newest contributions on Young Money’s ‘We Are Young Money’:

Young Money feat. Lloyd – Bedrock

Young Money – She Is Gone

Lil Wayne feat. Gucci Mane – Steady Mobbin’

Young Money – Wife Beater

DJ Khaled feat. Lil Wayne & Birdman – ‘S’ On My

Flo Rida – Still Missin’

Ace Hood – I Don’t Give A Fuck

Lil Wayne feat. Brisco – I’m In The Hood

Chamillionaire – The Evening News

Treal – Spaceship
