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.

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”.

BIG K.R.I.T.

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.

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

Younger Money

www.enliten.me

First off, Wiz Khalifa’s new CD, ‘Deal Or No Deal’, dropped today. Definitely give it a listen. You can hear samples and download the whole album for only $6.99 on Amazon – pretty good price. Here’s the cover:

Wiz Khalifa – Deal Or No Deal

Check out these free mixtapes released in the last week by Young Money artists Lil Twist & Tyga. Twist is only 16, but he has some good lines; he is probably the best in his age class… the class president even. And Tyga is notorious for solid mixtapes:

Lil Twist – Class President

[Featured artists: Tyga, Gudda Gudda, Jae Millz, The New Boyz, Birdman, Soulja Boy, Yung Joc, Young Dro, Bow Wow, Nicki Minaj, Short Dawg, Trai’D, Lil JJ & Young Durty]

Cinglis!

First, I had to post this song again. It’s prob my favorite song right now. Get it if you haven’t!

The Grouch & Eligh feat. Slug – !BOOM!

 

Ace Hood is hood… Definitely a good collab with Luda.

Ace Hood feat. Ludacris – Born An OG

 

I don’t know if I’ve heard a beat by Twist, but this one isn’t bad at all.

Jae Millz – I Feel Me (produced by Lil Twist)

Jae Millz – Defeat Is Not An Option

 

Mickey is pretty good. Reminds me of Lupe’s style maybe?

Mickey Factz – Flyin Ballons

 

The remix with Gucci came out at basically the same time as the original haha. I guess it’s an Eminem diss track… The second one with Snoop is pretty good/funny tho.

Mariah Carey feat. Gucci Mane – Obsessed (remix)

Gucci Mane feat. Snoop Dogg – Awesome

 

Actually makes me kinda excited for The Rebirth…

Lil Wayne feat. Tyga – Ground Zero

Lil Wayne – Ready For The World

 

I think this is a freestyle? Idk, but Cudi is pretty hot right now.

Kid Cudi – Excuse My Mood

 

For the new 2K game. Not a huge Game fan, but I always like the music in those games…

The Game – NBA 2K10

 

Hahaha… reminds me of that Natalie Portman rap that sug. posted (reposted below).

Taylor Swift feat. T-Pain – Thug Story
