Mixtape: The Underachievers – Indigoism

Mixtape: The Underachievers – Indigoism

The Underachievers are coming out of New York, and represent the Beast Coast movement with Joey Bada$$ and the Pro Era team. In addition, AK & Dash (the two young’n’s who make up the duo) signed a deal to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label last summer. Indigoism marks their first release since, and it’s surely full of good music. The two have a great sense of putting together memorable lyrics over stand out beats. There’s production from Rich Flyer, Mr. Bristol, Entreproducers and more.

Pusha T – Funkmaster Flex Freestyle

Pusha T – Funkmaster Flex Freestyle

“My niggas pray to the Pyrex god” The relationship between Funkmaster Flex and Pusha T has spawned several memorable radio freestyles over the last couple years. With Wrath Of Caine out now, it was only right that he stopped by Hot 97′s studios during his week-long NYC promo run. He did two freestyles with rhymes we’ve never heard, just like we like ‘em. The lyrics on part one outmatch what he does on part two. Hit the jump for the videos of him freestyling.

RL Ft. Taylor J – Boo’d Up

RL Ft. Taylor J – Boo’d Up

Last time RL popped up on Sermon’s Domain, he was with the other two members of Next and let us know in our exclusive interview that the group was back doing an album. Well, the artwork for RL’s new single says otherwise as “formerly of Next” is plastered in plain view. Teaming up with rising ATL rapper Taylor J, “Boo’d Up” is a nice love song. The title of his solo debut is now 5:15, as opposed to Love Music a couple years ago. RL Ft. Taylor J – Boo’d Up Previously: Video: SD Exclusive: Next Announces New Album; Talks… continue reading

Guest Editorial: Macklemore: The Antithesis Of Hipsterism (Part 2)

Guest Editorial: Macklemore: The Antithesis Of Hipsterism (Part 2)

This is a continuation from yesterday’s part one. Written by Dharmic X (@DharmicX) Digging through Macklemore’s catalog reveals that he has always lacked the eccentricity–the “shock value,” so to speak–that has drawn Pitchfork’s attention over the years. Starting out as a Freestyle Fellowship knock-off under the name of Professor Macklemore nearly thirteen years ago, he eventually dropped “Professor”from his rap name, polished his delivery (sorta), and began positioning himself as more of a humble, common man emcee.

Action Bronson – Strictly 4 My Jeep (Prod. By Harry Fraud)

Action Bronson – Strictly 4 My Jeep (Prod. By Harry Fraud)

Leave it to Harry Fraud to be able to flip the nicest samples and provide them to Action Bronson who will in return rip them. “Strictly 4 My Jeep” is the type of song you’d expect Action to perform to get the crowd hyped up. The beat is a true hip-hopper’s dream. His next album is in the works, along with other projects, including a Harry Fraud collaboration. Shouts to DJ Enuff. Action Bronson – Strictly 4 My Jeep (Prod.

Mixtape: Wrekonize – The Rooftops

We’ve been waiting for Wrekonize to go solo and drop a mixtape for some time now. His abilities within ¡MAYDAY! are top notch, and he doesn’t let up with The Rooftops. DJ Burn One plays the hosting duties, and also produces the mixtape’s closer, while features from Bernz, Rittz, Joell Ortiz and a few others are on it. There’s a mix of original songs and freestyles to the true definition of what a mixtape is.
