We came, we saw and we kept the hits coming for more than two hours last night on The Concrete Schoolyard! We had local artist T. Jay getting us Ignant, Chance The Rapper had us Feeling Good and A.Dd+ let us know the Plus Sign is Silent. But the biggest message from last night was from Mr. I am donald himself.
I’m stupid excited to introduce a #TapeOfTheWeek for A.Dd+ as they are from my stomping grounds of Dallas/Ft.Worth, Texas! I’ve been on them for a while as my cousins link up with them sometimes. E-Yo be hatin not showin my city love but it’s cool though because he did this week *shrugs*. E-Yo once again killed the airwaves for two hours of pure, unadulterated, underground awesomeness.
We had a full house with Dj E-Yo and I. Dj Mars, whose new show airs before ours, dropped by, Dj Beeeaaamerrrr (gotta say it like Schoolboy Q would) who has a show on Saturday and Dj Ecclesiastes 5foot7, who is currently working on a DOPE comic book called #Ralfie&Rockwell also came by. They were all too scared to “get on the mic doe” Anyway, I’m not going to talk your ear off just listen to the show!
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!
DJ E-Yo’s first set got it started filled with new jams from Digital Diamonds (John Wayne, Scoop Deville and Chuck English), ADd+, J. Cole and Bass, Melo X, Johnny Polygon, and more.
Later we got into the new Pusha T and Kendrick Lamar – Nosestalgia This is the explicit version.
Also here is Dj E-Yo’s mix from his last live show at Hip Hop History, CLICK HERE or the picture below. Hip Hop History is an event that goes down at the Smoke N Barrel Tavern where six to seven Dj’s play their favorite music from a certain era in hip hop. Usually at the end of the night there is some big finale such as a dual or triple Dj battle. E-Yo’s set was titled “The New Underground”
Enjoy, and remember it’s The Concrete Schoolyard your latest and greatest in hip hop you haven’t heard.
We finally got to come back and throw you some super dope beats and rhymes! This week’s #TapeoftheWeek is brought to you by Open Mike Eagle (who performed at Smoke N Barrel in Fayetteville a week before the show with Lucio, MegaRan and Homeboy Sandman) titled Sir Rockabye! This is what you call a name your price album. You can get it for free but throw the brother some cash. He’s independent and releasing this music through his own personal means.
We started the show hot with a new Blu song produced by Pete Rock, new Vic Mensa, AMP Live, Jerreau of Fly Union, Wu-Tang Clan and much more! Ya’ll keep it locked as we bring you the latest and greatest that you never heard right here on The Concrete Schoolyard!
Still trying to figure out why these players aren’t working on my page.
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.
