Throwback Of The Day: Da Youngsta – Crewz Pop

When this shit dropped….I lost my mind. This was back when Carhartt, military vests, and Champion hoodies were paramount. This shit is harder than most music out now, and it still goes.

You young’ns need to get educated.

Video: Kendrick Lamar x Estevan Oriol Shoot It Up

Make sure to check out Kendrick Lamar’s show at SOBs Aug. 31st.

I first shot Kendrick Lamar while shooting Jay Rock’s album cover in Knickerson Gardens in Watts. Louie Mejia from CNN is always on the lookout for the next lastest greatest talent we have here in LA. So I put him in touch with Kendrick through my good friend Richie Abbott.

Video: The Bullitts x Jay Electronica – “Run & Hide (FUIR ET SE CACHER)”

The Bullitts & Jay Electronica team up once again for another arthouse flick. If there’s any new Jay Elect out I want to hear it. Embrace this moment because there’s a good chance you won’t hear anything new in the near future.

Video: Rick Ross & Alchemist Making Some FIRE!!

Ricky Rozay & Alchemist hit up the studio for Ross’ God Forgives, I Don’t project. Judging by the beats in background and the ones that are showcased, this project is going to be a BEAST! Rozay always had an ear for beats though. *Salud*

Missed Young Jeezy’s TM101 Show In NYC? (Videos)

For those who weren’t fortunate to attend Young Jeezy’s show at Highline Ballroom in NYC, I have some videos for you all. Considering that I didn’t make it to the show until the end, I had to watch these videos as well. Regardless, the show was DOPE! When Kanye West came out the fans lost their minds, but he wasn’t the only heavy hitter to make a guest appearance.

Check out more of the show under the cut.

Outasight – Setting Sun

Outasight always seems to drop the dopest music during the spring and summer. Is this a coincidence?

Video: Will J. Cole’s Career End Before It Even Started?

I love, love, love Hip Hop Report Lounge’s discourse about music. In this episode they discuss J. Cole’s music and how much he has fallen off. I can’t say I disagree. Half the time I see his music posted I listen to the first 30 seconds then turn it off. Don’t get me wrong, I support J. Cole and want him to do well, but it seems that his heart isn’t all the way it in. Plus, these last few songs all sound the same. Same thing with Drake’s last 2 songs.

I thought they were bringing light-skinned back??
