MSU vs Wisconsin Football Weekend

I’m sorry friends.  I’ve been neglecting you.  As I write this, I’m currently flying back to Michigan for the MSU vs Nebraska game.  Pretty pumped about it.  It’ll be a damn good time spending time with SundbergFTW, Scotter, Ty, Sammy C, Alli, Hannah, Watts, Rauch and we’ll finally get to introduce Mal to Ricks.

Where to start?  I suppose I shouldn’t make this post too wordy.  So since I’m already discussing football I suppose I should talk about last weekend when I went to visit Madison.   My first away Michigan State football game.  It was colder than a polar bear’s toenails.

Camp Randall Stadium

I had a great weekend with my cuzzo Franker and even chicagoian Bendey made the trip. Good drunken times were had. I must say the experience of Madison is quite different than East Lansing tailgating. In Madison its much more centered around bars, whereas at MSU, its all about getting drunk on some tennis courts. I gotta say that Madison bars are nicer than States, but Sparty has better tailgating. It was nice tho, when at a Madison bar, the Wisconsin marching band decided to drop through randomly, which was pretty cool.

The Wisconsin fans were very respectful and we didn’t catch any sh*t. Even after beating them in over time, which gave me a bonner (hence the reason I didn’t keep recording)

After the game, Bendey, Franker and I enjoyed some quality Midwestern binge drinking. One yard at a time, making the Klem family proud. Even Bendey unexpectedly showed out.

Carrying on the Kennedy/Klem tradition.

What a dorky step-father.

 

While at Franker’s place there were also many heated games of NBA Jam and NCAA Football. Safe to say, Bendey was put in his place in NBA Jam. Burnie will haunt Bendey’s dreams for the rest of his life.

BOOMSHAKALAKA!

The matches between star player #1 WR Frank Kennedy and MSU were pretty close, although he might have had me on the total number of wins. It was Halloween weekend, which of course had its benefits when we went out in Madison, ie Freakfest.

It was a quality weekend. Always enjoy hanging with Bendey and Franker. We miiiight have almost missed out flights, but my cheese curds and emptying our bladders were worth it.

DKA out.

Playlistings XI: Summer Release


Yup.

>DOWNLOAD HERE<

Well friends, the wait is over. Playlistings has returned for a special Summer Release.   Bendey and I couldn’t hold it back, there are just too many dope songs that you need to be jammin’ to this summer.  Some of them you’ve probably heard before if you’ve kept up with TheDKALife, but there are a plethora of other new tracks on this edition.

As some of you may know, Bendey’s blog Vivid Underground has been dissolved to make way for Bendey.com.  Bendey has decided to keep his new site professional and use it primarily to display his talents.  Props to him. Go check it out. www.Bendey.com

Here’s what Matt had to say:

“I just wanted to make this one be special. It’s been a while since we (DKA) crashed heads and I think we got a good release here…new, smart, and guaranteed to kick-start anyone’s summer.

As something that I love to do, but suddenly find it hard to set aside time and resources to enjoy; Playlistings has taken a backseat to some of the ‘more important’ things in life. This is the part where you say, “hey yo Bender, man up! I thought you had balls, sir. You gettin’ soft?” To which I would reply with a swift slap to your face. Instead of Playlistings releases coming every few weeks, they may become more sporadic throughout the year, but 10x more special. With this Summer Release, I wanted to communicate that. The design, much like a timeless leather-bound book, should show you’ve got something special here. Enjoy it.”


>DOWNLOAD HERE<

We’re both busy.  No guarantees there will be any future releases.  If there are, you will find them released exclusively at The DKA Life.  It will all depend if I have the time to compile the tracks and if Bendey has the time to make a dope cover.  So many responsibilities these days.  Growin’ up sucks.

So without further adieu, I hope you’ve already hit the download button and are eagerly awaiting the status bar to be at 100%.  I think you will be pleasantly satisfied with this Playlistings.  Tell all your friends and family & feel free to leave comments and let me know what you think.

DKA out.

Disclaimer: All of these tracks have been released by the artist’s themselves.  Thus, I find it fair to compile them into one magnificent mixtape.  Upon any request, the link will be removed immediately.

 



Childish Gambino’s “Culdesac” Album.

LISTEN/DOWNLOAD HERE

This is before the IAMDONALD EP, I posted a few months ago.  This is a lot more refined and better than his I Do Not Talk Mixtape, which was a lot of his earlier, unfinished work.  RauchER! wanted me to post this for him and every one should definitely download it and give it a listen.  Its just about as good as his IAMDONALD EP.   Some of my favorites are:

“Let Me Dope You” “Different” “F**k it All” and “So Fly” (for the ladies).

I just hope he stops by South Florida soon.

Big shout out to @phi11ay for puttin’ me on this album! (and @Bendey for originally puttin’ me on to Childish ha)

Download HERE.

(edit: link now has “Break” and “Longest Text Message”)

Kid Childish is blowin up.  Already was jammin’ Freaks and Geeks a couple weeks ago.

Bendey was comparin’ his flow to Lil Wayne’s, the way he enunciates different bars annnnd that’s pretty spot on imo.  Today he drops that and 4 more songs for us to enjoy.  Gotta love free music.  Keep an eye on him.  *(Yes, its the same guy on NBC’s Community).

Enjoy.

Also, don’t forget to cop Lupe Fiasco’s new album “Lasers”

K-OS “The Anchorman Mixtape”

K-os live @ MSU

Haha wasn’t sure I’d ever get a reason to post one of my pictures of K-os from when he performed at Michigan State, but what do ya know… he dropped a new mixtape today titled “The Anchorman Mixtape”

If you haven’t heard of K-os before, he mixes rapping and melodic singing, similar to the homey Kid Cudi, but with more rocker-ish style.  He’s definitely been on the grind for awhile.  You’ve probably heard this song by him “Sunday Morning”

Anyways, I love Anchorman, so it was a must download for me.  Another reason why I am posting this, is because I know it’ll be a must download for my buddy Vasu.  You’re welcome. haha

I will say the Mixtape cover is kinda weak imo. Coulda definitley used UAC touch or two.
