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.

To be honest, this is just kind of a BS post that I’m doin’.  I took a few screenshots of people’s statuses that I found amusing.  Now I’m cleaning off my desktop and well, I’m just gonna post em here so I can delete them.

Mr. Chad Ochocinco is always great for some entertaining posts

Pic a day number 2. My article was liked and shared by XV himself.

I’m proud.




XV x Pac Div x Big Sean x Clipse x Kid Cudi @ MSU

April 12th’s concert was full of surprises.  What was scheduled to be a Kid Cudi show opened by Clipse ended up being a dream hip hop line up complete with XV, Pac Div, Big Sean, Clipse, and Kid Cudi.  Another amazing concert was put on by RHA.  The concert was at Michigan State University’s auditorium and tickets sold out in 8 minutes.  I was lucky enough to grab row 7 tickets and made my way to front row.   First up was Vizzy vizzy vizzy.

I was almost more hyped to see XV than all the other artists.  I been followin this kid for almost a year now, his last two mixtapes 30 minute layover (made in only 4 days) and Everybody’s Nobody (tons of great features).  Anyone that grew up in the 90s can appreciate all of his references.  Vizzy killed the set and got people more hyped than the other artists did.  He easily could have opened for Cudi by himself.  I look forward to seeing him perform again.  Keep up with him on his blog and stay on the look out for his debut album, The Kid With the Green Backpack.

Cliff Skighwalker & Rodney James help put on another great show.  Shout out to their hard work.

Pac Div made their first ever stop in Michigan and performed several hits from their mixtape Church League Champions.  I was happy to see them play “We the Champs”, they also performed “Knuckleheadz” and “Shut up”.  Another one of my favorites from their album is “No No”, I wished they would have played that, but they still put on a great show regardless.  DJ Sean was on his rap shit as usual.  Download the Lever 2009 mixtape for more Pac Div music.

Next up was the surprise appearance of the homie Big Sean!  The last time Big Sean was at Michigan State, he killed it.  You can read my full concert review featuring Fly. Union, and interview with Mike Posner HERE.  He performed Supa Dupa Lemonade.  The song that’s been on repeat for a good two months now.  Shout out to Bendey for the assist with the video.

Next up was Clipse.  I was happy they played their classic hit Grindin’ and several others off their new album Till the Casket Drops, an album that really surprised me.  Go take a listen if you haven’t already.  My battery was gettin’ low so I wasn’t able to capture as much as I wanted, but here’s a picture.  My favorite performance by them had to be “Keys Open Doors”.

Till the Casket Drops!

And then Mr. Mescudi, aka Domingo Brown, aka Kid Cudi graced the stage.  I was lucky enough to see him perform The Hip Hop Hangover Tour with 88 Keys and Asher Roth next door at the Royal Oak Theater, you can read my full summary of that show HERE.

You can call him Moon Man

He performed many of his new hits including “Already home” (pretty sure that made my boy Clark’s night), “That Tree”, as well as “Memories”.  He also gave us a sneak peak an a cappella version of Groovin, which will be on his next album Cudder & The Revolution of Evolution.

Download that right HERE.

Cudi ended the show in style.  Just like he did at Royal Oak, he played the last 3 songs in succession and the whole crowd RAGED.  Nothin like fist pumping jammin’ to Memories and Day n Night Crooker’s remix to end the night.

DKA out.
