Ok, we all know what this is about. Kendrick Lamar's verse on Big Sean's record "Control". I honestly had nothing to say regarding this verse. He killed it like he does on every song. I guess I didn't expect him to toss names. I feel Kendrick respectfully challenged those he admired. MOST of whom he called out are very capable of rising to the challenge... MAYBE!
This might just help all of hip-hop.
Check the HOT 97 video out. I couldn't agree more.
You have to appreciate a good band. I've always believed that a live band should be a standard in hip-hop. Musicianship takes everything to another level. Check out this short Rick Ross rehearsal clip.
Well I've been working hard on improving my mixes. I mean you think you have a decent mix and then one day you realize they all sound like shit. Well I guess that's the nature of progress. That is if you have a desire to improve.
It's exciting learning and improving but it's also daunting thinking about how much further you have to go. But I wonder. Will I ever be fully satisfied, and if I achieve satisfaction have I then become complacent???
I don't understand the hate that erupts when Kanye West exercises his creativity. I honestly believe that those who resists a new sound especially aspiring artist stunt themselves by not opening up their minds to new things creatively. People love to shout about how wack music is when they hear a synthesizer over a strong hip-hop back beat. Expand your minds people! I think Kanye West has long ago broken out of the boundaries of hip-hop. You may not believe Kanye West is hip-hop, but you better believe he's a lyrical artist who's FOUNDATION is hip-hop.
Finally posted some "newer" tracks on Soundcloud. I told you new music was on the way. I know I've been slacking on the blog but I've been really busy, but there are many exciting things to come so just enjoy the ride! Thanks for all the support! Here are the new tracks, take a listen! Hope you enjoy them!
Hey In case you all were wondering where I've been. I'm currently training to be a Army Combat Medic. Which is cool so far. I'll be back in April with updates, reviews, making music (which I love most) and keeping in touch. Wish me luck! See you all soon.
