Amble – “Happy Wyoming”

With electronic and hip-hop music taking over the airwaves, less and less do concert-goers experience live bands anymore. Not to knock on either genre, as I am a huge fan of both, ...

Luke Christopher – “Easy Child” (feat. Siena Streiber)

We have exposed you folks to the young guy by the name of Luke Christopher, but this latest single forces me to reveal him once again. There are a lot of rappers these days that focus so much on the "vibe", "a strong hook", or producing a "banger" that they stray away from the true meaning of hip hop, which is poetry and storytelling. In this 3 minute tune, Christopher intertwines two separate narratives th ...

Jurassic 5 – “The Way We Do It” [Music Video]

Thank God. J5 is back. I've been waiting 8 years for something new from one of the most classic hip hop groups of all time. Not only do we get this awesome new comeback track sampled from The White Stripes track, "My Doorbell", but we are hit with a very lengthy list of comeback tour dates for this summer. The second I heard this song, I was instantly overwhelmed with a sense of euphoria because not only do ...

Mani Coolin’ – “Saint Not a Sinner” [Music Video]

Another California emcee lurking in the shadows is a dude by the name of Mani Coolin'. With his first single off his upcoming EP entitled "Hope 4 The Youth", the 21-year old makes his ideas about today's youth very clear. In this track, "Saint Not a Sinner", Mani gives us a very cool, head bobbing, keyboard beat, with some tight bars to go back up this powerful message. I will definitely be staying tuned fo ...

Eric Biddines – “Planet Coffeebeen 2″ (Album)

I can't really say that drawing comparisons to Andre 3000 is a bad thing, so this guy is off to a hell of a start. As a true lover of dirty south hip hop, and an obvious Outkast soldier, I can confidently say that I approve of Florida boy, Eric Biddines. He seems to be a strong candidate to get behind when bringing back what we love about southern hip hop. His voice inflection emulates that of Andre, but he ...

R.A. The Rugged Man – “Still Get Through the Day” (feat. Eamon) [Music Video]

If you follow TSGA and any of my posts, it is pretty easy to pick up on my style of hip hop. R.A. The Rugged Man is one of those guys that maintains the true style that I see fading as time goes on. This guy is just a classic emcee who pours his heart onto each and every track. This newest video is for his song "Still Get Through the Day" which showcases the struggles and hardships that he faces on a daily ...

Nate Schultz & Shawn Lobel – “The Sundown” (Mixtape)

I've been waiting to put this dude on blast for a while now, and it seems like the perfect time to expose you to one of the talented up and comers in the Dirty South hip hop scene. A student at the University of South Carolina, Nate Schultz started getting some noise after some of his filthy freestyles surfaced on the web. Over a million hits on HotNewHipHop.com for his freestyle video caught the attention ...

Skizzy Mars – “Moments” (feat. Ms. Jones)

After a slight hiatus, Skizzy Mars is back with something fresh and new for us, something that we've come to expect. This newest track entitled "Moments" has a dance-indie vibe to it and adds yet another dimension to what Skizzy can bring to the table. The female vocals by Ms. Jones are awesome and really blend it all into a cool little sound. Skizzy kills his verses and bring a message that everyone can un ...

Dylan Owen – “Ghosts Revisited” [Music Video and Exclusive Interview]

Rappers these days are all about making money and getting women, right? Wrong. Rap is evolving into a genre more near art than it has ever been before. One man who is consistently proving this is NYC-based rap artist Dylan Owen. After releasing a full-length album during his senior year of high school, Owen went on to study for a year at Cornell University before moving to the city to pursue his music. Pret ...

Vic Mensa – “Suitcase” (Chance The Rapper)

Yep. I'm back again with something from Vic & Chance. Chance has and will be one of my favorites in the game, but all you Acid Rappers better learn to get with Vic Mensa. One of Chance's Chi-Town compadres, Mensa, has a crazy unique style. He has addicting flow and rhymes that make you want to search all over for more. Well, you're in luck. You chew on this new one for a minute. Featuring a very chance-like ...

Matt Easton – “Kaleidoscope Dope” (Music Video)

Although I'm not huge on the "college rap" scene, every once on a while I come across a dude who can bring it. This beat is smooth as butta, these verses come easy, and this tune is something you should definitely check out. Matt Easton has a very easy flow and in my opinion, has the potential to blow up a little bit. Just like he quotes, "Kaleidoscope Dope" is some "old school flow, with a new sound". With ...

Ingrid Michaelson- “Human Again” (Album Review)

This review is long overdue. I mean really long. The album was released in January of 2012 if that tells you anything. For some reason, this album totally flew under my radar, and I think everyone else's as well. I've always been a fan of Ingrid Michaelson's music, but her music tends to be very bubbly and bright and that's just too much for me sometimes. However, this album is different. She brings somethi ...

Gucci Mane x Boards of Canada [Mixtape]

So this is a new one. When I heard that this was a thing I have to admit I was pretty skeptical. However, I think I love it. It's like weirdly beautiful, in a bit of a misogynistic Gucci Mane way. I don't know. I'm a bit taken aback by this because I'm listening to it right now and I'm loving it. Boards of Canada add an Explosions in the Sky type of ambience to this, almost giving the whole thing a melancho ...

Splitting Peas, Carving Carrots, and Loving Courtney Barnett

NPR’s Bob Boilen always delivers the best, so I’m not shy about admitting where I usually find my favorite new artists. Last week on his All Things Considered podcast, he, music critic Maria Sherman, and WSPN’s Becka Schwartz presented their favorite finds from the 2013 CMJ Music Festival. From Priests to Jacco Gardener to Eagulls, Boilen and his crew introduced myself and other listeners to names both new ...

Lupe Fiasco – Old School Love (feat. Ed Sheeran)

I will never understand why people continue to forget about Lupe. A veteran in the hip hop game, he truly has a grasp on the art form and the business that comes with it. In anticipation for his upcoming album called Tetsuo and Youth that is scheduled to drop very soon (date not yet officially announced), Lupe gives us this very likable little tune featuring the smooth singing Ed Sheeran which you know will ...
