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.

An artist you need to listen to: Part II

Big Sean.

Big Sean

Its not very often I get motivated to write an article/review on an artist.  As some of you know, the last artist I did a little piece on Drake, which you can read here.  Big Sean was born in California, but grew up in lovely city of Detroit.  He’s currently signed to Kanye’s label GOOD Music and has a flow and sound like Fabolous.  I heard about Big Sean when he first made his appearance on Kanye’s 2007 summer mixtape “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” with the song “Getchya Some”.  It was and still is a decent song.  A year or two later I decided to download his first mixtape Finally Famous The Mixtape.  To be honest it didn’t get alot of play on my iTunes.  Fast forward to the past couple weeks, Big Sean made a few guest appearances on Mike Posner’s mixtape A Matter of Time, which is also worth the free download on iTunes.  (I’ll probably make a post on Mike Posner later).  So yesterday, April 16th, Big Sean released his second album, UKNOWBIGSEAN.  Wow.

UKNOWBIGSEAN mixtape. go download, period.

Like he says on his mixtape “like wine he gets better with age”.  Maybe his music is just the perfect match for my mood right now.  But this mixtape is definatley album quality.  I’ve only listened to it once thus far, so its hard to see whether or not it has replay ability, but I was able to listen to it the whole way through the first time without skipping any tracks which is a good sign (Even though I love Kid Cudi’s mixtape “A Kid Named Cudi”, it took awhile for it to grow on me).

In my opinion, this kids metaphors already rival that of Drakes and even the untouchable Lil Wayne.  Time will tell whether or not he comes through and keeps producing good product.  Some of my favorite songs on the album are “Love story”, “UKnowBigSean”, “Billionaire” (once you get past the annoying DJ Khaled intro…the beat is crazy), “who knows”, “hollywood”, “Last for Life”, among many others.

His metaphors and lyrics are on point.  Do yourself and download his free mixtape here. 5/5 from DKA.

An artist you should listen to.

Drake.

Drake "The Best of Drizzy"

I’ve been hearing about him for quite some time now.  Drake is an MC that is from Toronto, Canada and has the  backing of Lil’ Wayne (who is on a couple tracks with him as well and also has Drake performing with him).  NT loves him and so does hiphopupdate.  The first couple tracks I heard from him impressed me (Ransom ft. Lil Wayne), but I never took the time to follow up on him.

So a couple days ago I wanted some new music to listen to so I downloaded a mixtape that NT recommended, The Best of Drizzy.  I must say that I’m very impressed.  I would say that he is somewhere between Wale and Kid Cudi as far as style goes.  He’s probably better than Wale lyrics wise, but Wale has alot more songs that are meaningful.  Drake also sings in a some of his songs and is Kid Cudi like, although not quite as good as it.  This mixtape is a quality download, especially since its free.  Although for some of the songs he’s just rapping over other beats (i.e Swagger Like Us, Barry Bonds), he stil brings the lyrics to the table.  Some of his best songs are his slower ones.

Here is a dose of one of his lyrics:

“I’m perfectin’ my craft, usin’ mo’ sess. Tryin’ to make some cheese off a single is a pro’cess.  Get it? Kraft. Single. Cheese. Process. Sit back and admire the talent that i po’ssess.”

“You can’t miss the boy, me and rich United like Van Nistelrooy”

***

At the end of the day, Drake falls in between these two artists and is refreshing.

I forget where I downloaded it but here’s the same or a different link I found to download the mixtape (DL with caution).
