“Let the suicide doors up.  I threw suicides on the tour bus. I threw suicides on the private jet. You know what that mean? I’m fly to death” – Kanyeeeezy

Big Sean brings heat as well.  2 chainz sounded great on the song too.

Megapost of Music. QuESt, Childish, Ye, Mac Miller.

First up, Miami’s own QuESt.  I had heard a track or two from him last year. “If You Wanna” that caught my ear, but his other songs at the time just didn’t really stand out to me.  Well, that’s changed now after his last mixtape ‘Fear Not Failure’.  He brings out a new vibe and I’m a fan.

Check out the trailer below.

I’ve given this mixtape a couple listens to and it gets The DKA Life seal of approval.  The production has alot of electronic influence, which is always welcome.  A lot of the album…I mean mixtape, also has a Weeknd feel/sound production wise.  However, its a bit more uplifting than the Weeknd.  Definitely one of the best, complete projects I’ve heard thus far this year.

Hopefully I’ll get to see him live before I leave the 305.  I look forward to hearing more of his work.

…I posted it first for a reason, go download it.

aaaand of course, I gotta give you the new Childish Gambino tracks that dropped (one’s a feature in his fellow producer/singer Ludovin’s new project)  Looking forward to Donald’s mixtape….errr Mixtape EP dropping later this year.

Boy, this came outta no where.  Funkmaster Flex & DJ Khaled dropped this lil Kanye joint today, “Theraflu”.   So so so coooold Yeeezy.  Kanye goin off on some dudes.  Can’t wait for the new kicks to drop.  My boy Philly is gonna have to school me on how to get them exclusive kicks.

…and stay tuned for GOOD Friday.

Yeah, I been slacking.  Mac Miller dropped this mixtape, ‘Macadelic’, off 2 weeks ago I believe.  I’ve enjoyed it.  This mixtape is a bit more mature and is a solid project that’s worth the download.

Well, I think that’s all I got for now.  I need to post more often, but I was busy working the ER and partying my ass off.  I’m home now, but when I get back to Miami, expect a couple more posts.  Definitely had an insane night at Liv that I’ll be blogging about.

That is all.  DKA out.

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.

DKA out.
