G-Eazy (feat. E40 & Jay Ant) – Far Alone (Remix)

Monday, June 16th, 2014

I’ve always been drawn to the Bay Area rap scene, possibly because they never take themselves too seriously (as the whole premise to their demeanor is to “go stupid”). There is something to be said about this drug-induced way of life. It certainly makes for a unique brand of hip hop and this track is unlike one I have heard from the Bay. The slow, ominous guitar fading in and out in the background and drum machine make it impossible not to get swept up in the track. Enjoy this one.

Macklemore – The Town

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Okay, so now that Macklemore is a household name, he has the perfect soapbox to step upon to spread his message. When Macklemore isn’t hitting the Thrift Shop, he’s busy repping mine and his city (Seattle), advocating marriage equality, supporting music for kids in public schools, and trying to ease the animosity surrounding the rap and R&B scene. But most importantly for me, this guy single-handedly makes me proud of the place where I am from. This is one of his tracks that really attracted me to his sound. You should know that he does rep his city hard and this is something I feel everyone can appreciate, no matter where you come from. Finding an artist who is humble and will not sell out to the game is rare in the music business but is absolutely unheard of in the rap industry. Macklemore is truly one in a million; I am a proud supporter and you should be too.

D. Gookin – Glad I Met You

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

Such a simple song, but that synth just kills me. It’s so catchy, almost like it’s taunting me to listen again. The flute-like and xylophone sounds are really a nice touch as well. This guy has been around for a while and you better believe he’ll be on my radar from now on.
