For our #TapeOfTheWeek the homie Danny Brown dropped a new album by the name of “Old” on the Tuesday before our show last week! The album is riddled with DOPE beats and songs and a few features from current hip hop royalty. Black Hippy members Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul both contributed to Dope Fiend Rental & Way Up Here respectively. 25 Bucks featuring Purity Ring is sick, Kush Coma is definitely a banger with A$ap Rocky & Zelooperz. Dubstep, Float On & Wonderbread are among the other standouts on an album that truly defines Danny Brown. He seems to have fused Danny from “Hybrid” with the dirty ODB-esque foul mouthed Danny from “XXX”
Dj E-Yo held it down alone last night while I attended to MMALockup business and interviews! He dropped a brand new Schoolboy Q – Banger (MOSHPIT) at the beginning of the show and you heard it here first!
Plus SO MUCH NEW MUUUUUUSSSSSIIIIIC! I’m still having plugin issues with WordPress so: Listen HERE now!
This week we tackled a lot of new hip hop as school starts next Monday. Earl Sweatshirt’s Doris dropped Tuesday and was our #TapeOfTheWeek. Sweatshirt is of Odd Future fame. We played everything from new Childish Gambino – Centipede to Rapsody – Jedi Code to Yasiin Bey – Black Jesus. Sadly, we reported that Jean Grae’s mother, the South African Songbird, passed and we played some Jean’s classic rhymes in honor of this.
