This year, as backpacks are being filled, it’s a good idea to fill your iPod while you’re at it. This  Playlistings release showcases a short (but potent) tracklist of hip-hop’s incoming freshman class. Although these names might be somewhat new, I can promise you they won’t be by the time you bomb that first exam. So to all those who are saddling up for a new year full of fresh pencils, pens, brand new kicks, and squeaky clean notebooks; you’ve got company. Check these new artists out.

Tracklist:

The Dean’s ListCollege Girls (feat. Jordan Brown)
Mac MillerKool Aid & Frozen Pizza
Kid InkAll I Know (feat. Sterling Simms)
DLRNReset (feat. Prometheus Brown & Illecism)
Diggy SimmonsGreat Expectations (feat. Bei Maejor)
Sean BrownChange (feat. Ty$)
XVWe Zonin’
LosTheme Song (feat. DC)

P.S. I feel bad for anyone who never had the chance to rock LA Gear’s back in the 90′s.  I hope they make a return soon.  Get those A’s kids.

DKA outttt.

A couple must D/L mixtapes: Wale. DLRN. Ghostwridah.

I’ve been pretty busy the past month, but here are a couple mixtapes that I think are must downloads.

First up, we have Ghostwridah’s “In Love With My Future”.  He’s a Dade County native and you might have first heard him on Playlistings: vol I. 305 Special “Red Bottoms” w/ the Jay-Z hook.  Its good hiphop and been in my rotation.

Next up is DLRN or Delorean, one of the fellas over at Code 2, El Capitan, discovered this little 8 track mixtape “The Bridge” that definitely has a unique sound.  So much so, I’m probably gonna go download their old album right after this post.  “Trill Cosby”, “Reset” and “…Fallen Heroes” are some of my favorite tracks.  They combine smooth flowin’ wordplay with synthesizers and it works beautifully.

“I’m on my G, shes on her back, till she pulls me over like a starter jacket, that line there is when you start to catch it, I stay over heads, lettuce and cabbage”

Lastly, but not least, is the homey Wale.

I had this shirt first.

He released “A Mixtape About Nothing” last year and just released “More About Nothing”, another Seinfeld themed mixtape….which is good by me, since I love that show.  Some of my favorites are The Eye of the Tiger, which is centered around the Tiger Woods drama and is quite clever… you can also find this on Playlistings vol III. Another good one is “The War”, “The Cool” w/ Wiz Khalifa and “The Black and Gold”.

Well, there are 3 free CD’s (4 counting playlistings…but you already downloaded that right?! haaaaa) from your boy DA.

Enduldge your ear drums and lemme know what you like.

DKA out!
