Mac Miller’s ‘Best Day Ever’ Mixtape


Mac Miller drops his newest mixtape ‘Best Day Ever’ for our listening consumption.  He dropped his K.I.D.S. mixtape last year and gained a lot of attention.  This year he made XXL’s “2011 Freshman Class” cut and is one of the few I actually agree with (this year should have also included XV and Childish Gambino imo).

Here’s a quick sample for ya from the mixtape:


He’s from Pittsburgh Black and Yellow Black and Yellow Black and Yellow Black and Yellow and works with a lot of the same crew (Rostrum Records) as Wiz Khalifa.  He’s got a similar vibe and this mixtape gets The DKA Life seal of approval.  Look for him to blow up in the next year.


DKA out.

Playlistings Vol, 6: Back 2 School Special

(notice the shoeprint)


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.

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.
