I can't wait for Lasers to come out. I think it'll be in contention for (rap) album of the year. And just to be clear: I would buy Lasers over Thank Me Later everyday of the week. Sorry Drizzy.

Attention everybody, Pac Div is a problem. These dudes go hard on every track, every verse, and every bar. In fact, I don't think I've never disliked a Pac Div song. From the beats to the rhymes, everything about them is on point. Their last mixtape, Church League Champions, was doper than dope. Don't Mention It brings us more of the same bass bumpin', 808 jumpin', hi-hat clickin', nod-your-head-tap-your-foot California flavor. I like where they're taking hip hop. Don't sleep on these guys. Check out one of the songs from the tape, then hit the jump for the whole thing.

This song has been in my iTunes rotation for a few weeks now. I think I should share it with you guys. It's electro. It's fresh. I think you'll like it. Check it out:
What happens when LMFAO does tons of Xanex? Correct. You get Dr. Hollywood. What happens when you mix Chromeo x Beach House x Miami Horror x Bag Raiders x Breakbot? Correct. You get Dr. Hollywood. These guys are undeniably dope. This song is undeniably dope. They run LA, and will continue to do so if they keep making songs like this. This is a must download. Check it out:
Dr. Hollywood - We Run LA (Dance Remix)
BONUS** Dr. Hollywood - Partners in Crime

I am not on the Dean's List, nor have I ever been, nor will I ever be. But that's neither here nor there. So about a week ago when I was scouring the internet for new music I came across a group of college kids called The Dean's List. They had a cool name and I saw they were from Boston so I gave them a listen, and I've come to the conclusion that they are pretty dope-- think the Cataracs x Chiddy Bang x XV. I bet you're intrigued now, right? Well, the music speaks for itself. Check out a couple of their tracks below.
The Dean's List - Ready to Go
The Dean's List - I'll Be Okay
The Dean's List - Valley Girl (Clean Breakeven Remix)

*Okay* It's young Khalifa and he's back before we knew he had even left. This mixtape is dope. Tons of new material: new beats, new rhymes, new flow, all that. His fan base is growing and he is beginning to experience crossover success-- college kids across the country know his name and like his music. He deserves every bit of praise he gets just based off the amount of work dude is putting in. Well done, sir. Check the links below. Taylor Gang or Die.

They're back! Yup, it's Chiddy Bang, and they've just released a new mini-mixtape. And guess what? It's dope. The boys from Philly have done it again. Only this time they are flying first class on Air Swell. But don't let their new mode of transportation fool you, they still have that Swelly Express vibe. Check out "Hey London" below. Then hit the jump for the whole tape.

Ummm... where was this song back in November when Attention:Deficit dropped? This version >> than the version featuring Gucci Mane. Delete the original from your iTunes and replace it with this song. Thank me later.
Charles Hamilton is slowly sneaking back into the realm of relevancy. He had to fall back for a while but has recently released a ton of new material. I wasn't really expecting much when I downloaded it, but wow, this song really surprised me. His flow is tight and the sample ("Just What I Needed" by The Cars) is dope. It's not quite on the same level as "Brooklyn Girls," but it's definitely one of the best songs he's come out with since-- I can hear this bumpin' at a party. So for those of you who thought Charles Hamilton lost his touch, think again. The kid is back. Hopefully he can keep this up and deliver more quality records like this in the future. Check it out.

"You ain't gonna hear nobody that's hotter." -- Sam Adams
Sammy Adams is on fire right now. The EP is out. His fan base is growing exponentially. He's on national television. Blogs are buzzing. Haters are silent. Life couldn't be better for Boston's boy... or could it? Ok, I know that last statement raised a few eyebrows, but hear me out and I'll explain why.
So Boston's Boy dropped a little more than a month ago and since then he's been all over iTunes, Billboard.com, LA, New York, Boston, and even Cancun. Pretty sweet, right? Not bad for a senior about to graduate from college in a few weeks. Yeah he's flying high like a Jetson, but I would argue that he has nowhere else to go but up. I think he's only tapped into a small portion of his potential. Yeah he can spit a couple rhymes, produce a smash record (i.e. "Driving Me Crazy"), and get the crowd hype, but I feel like that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Two words. Party records. Samuel Adams Wisner is collaborating with DJ Tiesto, A-Trak, and Clinton Sparks... This is huge. Working with local producers like Matty Trump unequivocally helped launch his flourishing career. And now Sammy has attracted the attention of some of the industry's hottest electro-pop producers that could very well take him to the next level. Here is a taste of what you can expect to hear from Sammy Adams in the near future.
And finally, here is a new track he just recorded. It's a remix of "Heads Will Roll" by The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Definitely a party record. Produced by A-Trak and Matty Trump.
