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.”

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.

Big Sean’s “My Last” ft. Chris Brown Video

backstage passes ftw.

 

Big Sean is one of the most talented, honest, humble G’s in the game.  He’s from Detroit and if you haven’t heard of him where have you been…he’s on Kanye’s G.O.O.D. music label.  I been followin’ him since I heard “Get’cha Some” on Kanye’s ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing’ mixtape back in the summer of 2007.  DKA Life readers already know this from when I cosigned him in April 2009.  (Rauch I’m lookin at you).

Over the past two years, he’s blown up.  He’s defined his own sound and has really stepped his game up lyrically (#1 right now imo).  He’s created his own movement ‘Finally Famous’ and is starting to gain mainstream popularity and has gained the respect of fellow artists.  No one deserves it more.  Its his birthday today, so I figured it was appropriate to post his newest video “My Last” ft. Chris Breezy and introduce him to those of you who aren’t familiar yet.  This song should be hittin radio airwaves w/in the month.

Learn more about Big Sean from this interview with Sway.  (Seriously, watch it….you’re on my blog, you obviously have too much time on your hands)

Finally Famous the album droppin’ May 3rd (tentatively) …been waitin’ forever!  I do it, boiiiiii.

Playlistings vol. 7

DOWNLOAD THE WORLD’S GREATEST F’N THING RIGHT NOW

I’ve been excited for this volume to drop.  It was only a few days ago that the rookie class was introduced to the Vivid/DKALife/hip-hop sector and it’s been nothing but G.O.O.D. music ever since. Kanye, XV, and Detroit’s very own Big Sean lock up the majority of the slots on this one. Chicago, Detroit, and hell, why not…Kansas City has earned it’s place on the map with XV’s “Vizzy Zone” mixtape coming out late last week. You’re about to get dialed in on this one!  Quite possibly the best Playlistings yet imo.
