Blake Kelly Prepares for Takeoff

Posted by T. Adeyemi on November 3, 2010

Progression in any craft has always been something to appreciate. In a society of here today, gone tomorrow phenoms its rare for someone to have a sustained gravity. For Blake Kelly it seems he’s progressed from the schoolyard cyphers at Hampton University to hosting college parties and then on to nationwide tours. And now he’s poised to challenge gravity with his latest compilation.

Plane Mode the mixtape is the long overdue follow-up to the Rockstar general’s initial mixtape, Higher Education.  This sophomore mixtape is sure to include a lot of bravado, plenty of love for the opposite sex, and undoubtedly enough weed smoke to catch a contact. Kelly’s steady and deliberate delivery provide potency for the words he speaks. His style similar to his lifestyle has over went some change, in this case change is good when it comes to providing the streets with quality music. Read the rest of this entry »

Smokin’ Dro Week 8 – “Ric Flair”

Posted by J. Tinsley on October 28, 2010

Do you know what today is? It’s “Smokin’ Dro’s” eight week anniversary. Pending my first grade math is still sharp, eight weeks equates to two months which means a long-term relationship for those with a fear of commitment. As with any bond, however, arguments will happen. So what better way to tie it in than with one of Hip-Hop’s most unique wordsmiths and a song titled after one of sports and entertainment’s most iconic sh!t talkers. WOOOOO!  

Song: “Ric Flair”

Favorite Dro-ism: Dro, you know the rims I ride on knee-high/I be hurtin’ niggas so bad, it make me cry/Light skin paint on the Chevy, that thing T.I./Chain notorious, call that thing B.I. Read the rest of this entry »

Freeway – ‘Escalators’ (Artwork) x ‘Beautiful Music’ (Video)

Posted by Mr. Put On on October 18, 2010

Philadelphia’s Freeway is definitely back to work. His previous compilation Stimulus Package didn’t get too much of a push, but nonetheless it was still a quality album once I put it in for a spin. With features from artists such as Raekwon, Birdman, Bun B., and the Philly Phamilia Omillio Sparks, Beanie Siegel, and Young Chris the album was definitely worth the listen and you on that “Phila Music”!

Now Freeway is working on his new album which should definitely be getting the attention it deserves. We all know and enjoy Freeway’s music; time and time again his classics bring us back to some memory and he delivers us that feeling. You know the feeling I’m talkin about, Read the rest of this entry »

Fabolous – “Funkmaster Flex Freestyle” + Video

Posted by J. Tinsley on September 1, 2010

This? THIS is the Fab people came up on long before the Internet connected the world to Hot 97. For me, a young kid from VA at the time, I’d always hear of these epic freestyles Loso (who still spelled his name during this era) would lace over the tri-state airwaves. DJ Clue was hyping the guy as the next savior of rap music. And every mixtape I got my hands on would leave me to believe he was telling the truth. Since then, John Jackson has gone on to create a successful career for himself with a string of platinum albums and several hit singles. Read the rest of this entry »
