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!

To commemorate the start of SXSW‘s music schedule tomorrow, I wanted to highlight a pretty cool feature Last.fm is offering its users for free. Even though I won’t be at the festival, I am a huge Last.fm fan. Plus one-third of Enliten will be in attendance… be on the lookout for SUG near the Collie Buddz camp. So in the words of Bobby Hundreds, “if you’re in the area, stop by and say ‘What’s up’ or ‘Howdy, Y’all’ or ‘I hate you guys, you ruined streetwear’ or whatever you crazy Texans do.”

Back to the topic, Last.fm created a tool called “SXSW Band Aid 2011” that allows users to instantly view a personalized list of artists to see at the festival based on their play history. If you have a Last.fm account, go here to check out which artists to see (or see what you’re missing and cry). Here’s my list:

Artists To Watch ’11-’12: Part 1


It’s that time  again – my 3rd annual “Artists To Watch” list. I debated about not doing it this year with the previous (lack of?) success of the first two lists (Artists To Watch ’10-’11Artists To Watch ’09-’10). Like in prior years, an artist can’t be on one of my past lists to qualify this time. I had to split this year into two parts: Part 1 & Part 2.

One quick clarification: this isn’t a “Freshman” list because, honestly, I’m not sure what that means. This list is comprised of new(er) artists that I’ll be keeping my eye on over the next few years… and you should too! I’ve included 1 video, 1 mixtape and 3 of my top tracks for each. In no particular order:

Young L

The most talented artist from The Pack – no, not Lil B. His beats are some of the best out there. Plus dude has the sickest chains –  see video below.



Young L – DOMO-KUN mixtape


Young L – Right There mp3

Young L – Watch How I Do mp3

Young L – Pop That Coochi mp3

Bei Maejor

Bei Maejor is already a well-established producer working with artists like Trey Songz, Soulja Boy and Keri Hilson. His solo work is something to check out as well.



Bei Maejor – Upside Down 2 mixtape


Bei Maejor – Translation (Alien Music) mp3

Bei Maejor feat. Big Shan – PaperBoy mp3

Bei Maejor – Sing A Lil Song mp3

Mac Miller

Born in Pittsburgh and signed to Rostrum Records, Mac Miller is closely following one of the hottest rappers in the game: Wiz Khalifa. That’s about where their similarities stop though.



Mac Miller – K.I.D.S. mixtape


Mac Miller – Donald Trump mp3

Mac Miller – Trippin’ Out mp3

Mac Miller – Nikes On My Feet mp3

Chiddy Bang

Consisting of rapper Chiddy and producer Xaphoon Jones, Chiddy Bang consistently makes some of my favorite music. I could listen to every Chiddy track in my library without skipping. Oh, and Chiddy Bang > Shwayze.



Chiddy Bang – The Swelly Express mixtape


Chiddy Bang feat. Train – Baby Roulette mp3

Chiddy Bang – Young Blood (remix) mp3

Chiddy Bang feat. Q-Tip – Here We Go mp3

Shawn Chrystopher

Hailing from Inglewood, Shawn Chrystopher is definitely a Freshman to watch out for – he is repping Honour ROLE Music.



Shawn Chrystopher – You, And Only You mixtape


Shawn Chrystopher feat. Foster For the People – All the Other Kids mp3

Shawn Chrystopher feat. GLC – I’m GOOD mp3

Shawn Chrystopher – The Hangover mp3

Tyler the Creator

Recently exploding onto the scene, Tyler already has the music video of the year according to Kanye West –  and we all know how passionate Kanye is about videos.



Tyler the Creator – Bastard mixtape


Tyler the Creator – Seven mp3

Tyler the Creator feat. Jasper & Taco – Tina mp3

Tyler the Creator & Hodgy Beats- Sandwitches mp3

XV’s Album


XV’s new mixtape, “Vizzy Zone”, finally dropped yesterday… and it was definitely worth the wait. This is as close to a skip free mixtape as they come. But it’s really not a “mixtape” – it’s a legitimate album. Almost every track has original production, and XV holds his own like a veteran. Plus, you have to love the nerdy references to things video games, Star Wars & Lost. Until TKWTGB:

XV – Vizzy Zone (mixtape)

[Featured artists: Mike Posner, Talib Kweli, Mac Miller, Colin Munroe, Killer Mike, Chiddy Bang, Bun B, GLC & Kid Cudi]

XV feat. Talib Kweli – Reset Button

XV feat. Killer Mike & Mac Miller – May The Force Be With You

XV – Gettin’ Bizzy
