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

The Best Mixtapes of 2009

www.enliten.me

1. Drake – So Far Gone

When a comparatively bad retail-version of your CD sells 73,000 copies in the first week, while a very good mixtape-version is available online for free, your album is #1 in my book. Also, props for songs featuring Sweden’s Lykke Li and Peter Bjorn & John. Everyone better already have at least some version of this mixtape in their library, and get ready for ‘Thank Me Later‘ in 2010.

[Featured artists: Lil Wayne, Trey Songz, Bun B, Omarion, Lloyd, Lykke Li, Santogold & Peter Bjorn & John]

2. Wiz Khalifa – Flight School

I still listen to this CD pretty regularly. ‘Flight School’ showcases Wiz better than any of his other CD’s in 2009 by far.

[Featured artists: Kev Da Hustla & John Record]

3. Kid Cudi – Dat Kid From Cleveland

Kid Cudi had a big year, and this is his best mixtape effort for 2009.

[Featured artists: Kanye West, Common, Wale, Chip Tha Ripper, Consequence, Kevin Rudolf, Jackie Chain, 88-Keys & Sharam]

4. Big Sean – UKnowBigSean Vol. 2

I really wish Big Sean would release another mixtape, but this one will have to satisfy until that happens. This tape is solid throughout.

[Featured artists: Mike Posner, Santigold, Jay K, Earlly MacMillion, Dusty McFly, Keely & Pat Piff]

5. Lil Wayne – No Ceilings

Lil Wayne proves he is still ridiculously creative and has unlimited punch lines… gives me flashbacks to his mixtape haydays a few years ago.

[Featured artists: Birdman, Tyga, Jae Millz, Gudda Gudda, Nicki Minaj, Short Dawg, Shanell & Lucci Lou]

6. The Cool Kids – Gone Fishing

The Cool Kids drop another solid mixtape. I wish these guys came out with more music overall, but you can’t knock their consistent quality.

[Featured artists: Ryan Leslie, Shorty K, Jahda & Tennille]

7. Gucci Mane – Gucci Land

Gucci is the most popular rapper right now; I can see ‘The State vs. Radric Davis‘ selling between 250K & 500K this week… it’s a good CD. I had this mixtape, ‘Gucci Land’, on replay more than any of his others in the past year.

[Featured artists: OJ Da Juiceman, The Game, Timbaland, Fabolous, Nicki Minaj, Chip Tha Ripper, Dem Franchise Boyz, Yung L.A., Gorilla Zoe, Shawty Lo, Freeky Zekey & more]

8. B.o.B. – B.o.B. vs. Bobby Ray

B.o.B./Bobby Ray/This guy is definitely one of the most talented of the new artists with his versatility rapping and producing.

[Featured artists: Kanye West, T.I., Charles Hamilton, Asher Roth, OJ Da Juiceman, Bun B, Mickey Factz, Big Kuntry, Mac Boney, Playboy Tre & Killa Mike]

9. Mike Posner – One Foot Out The Door

My only non-rap mixtape for the year, and it is Mike Posner for a reason. The songs featuring Big Sean are the highlights for me.

[Featured artists: Kid Cudi, Big Sean, Saigon, Bun B, Clinton Sparks, Freddie Gibbs, GLC & XV]

10. Wale – Back to the Feature

Another rapper that had a big year; this is Wale’s best overall mixtape effort in 2009.

[Featured artists: Big Sean, Talib Kweli, Mike Posner, Bun B, Joell Ortiz, Lady Gaga, Currensy, Memphis Bleek, Peter Bjorn & John, Young Chris, J Cole, Royce Da 5’9, Joe Budden & more]

11. Tyga – The Free Album

Yeah, I couldn’t narrow my list to 10 selections, and I even had a hard time deciding between this mixtape and Tyga’s more recent, ‘The Potential‘.

[Featured artists: Lil Wayne, Gata & Short Dawg]

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]

Tyga – Black Thoughts

[Featured artists: Lloyd & Gudda Gudda]

Young Money has been coming out with some quality tracks recently. I’m featuring Gudda Gudda’s new mixtape ‘Guddaville’ presented by DJ Ill Will & DJ Rockstar. Lil Wayne has good verses throughout and everyone on Young Money holds their own:

Gudda Gudda – Gettin’ to the Money

Lil Twist, Tyga, Jae Millz & Gudda Gudda – The Dungeon

Gudda Gudda feat. Lil Wayne – Young Money Hospital

Bonus track:

Looks like I will have to address MTV’s list of the ‘Hottest MCs in the Game’ for 2009…

New Shit

Alright, so sorry to my 5 loyal viewers haha, but I’m back. I’ve just been a lil busy this last week going to Sunriver and fuggin ub 3 midterms. But hopefully you can forgive me if I post a ton of sik new songs.

But during my absence, pretty much all the artists on my “Artists To Watch in ‘09-’10” dropped songs. So I’ll post some of those and a few other tracks too. Let me know what you think!

Tyga – La La La Boom

KiD CuDi – Can I Be

CuDi’s track is produced by Ryan Leslie, who’s droppin an album tomorrow I think. Bonus Track:

Ryan Leslie feat. Keri Hilson – How It Was Supposed To Be (remix)

Charles Hamilton – Scorpion

Charles just dropped a mixtape called “Well Isn’t This Awkward“. Check it out. He usually goes hard on mixtapes and this is no different.

Drake feat. Lil Wayne – Ignorant Shit

Drake dropped a legit mixtape too called “So Far Gone“. Download that now! I seriously think Drake has some of the best lines in rap right now. ridiculous. Featured artist include Lil Wayne, Bun B, Lloyd, Santo Gold, Lykke Li (Waddup Sweden! haha), Omarion, and Trey Songz.

S.A.S. feat. Jae Millz & Ya Boy – Swaggers Up (remix)

Wale feat. Tre & Young Chris – Nightlife

Slim feat. Ron Browz & Deezo – Heels On (remix)

Ron Browz is killin it these days. He has the Pop Champagne, Arab Money, and now Jumping Out the Window videos on heavy rotation.

Playboy Tre feat. B.o.B. – We Are Robots

Yung L.A. – Have Her Like Bow

I have really been feelin Yung L.A. His flow is kinda like Shawty Lo (in a good way), but I think he’s more legit. If you haven’t seen his video for “Ain’t I” with Young Dro and T.I., you should check it out; it’s pretty doooope.
