We’re back with a new Music Monday, on Wednesday, and for this rare Wed morning edition, we’re having a look at rap legend Eminem’s new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2. I’m going to go right ahead and say that Eminem was, is (still), and always will be, one of the best rappers in the game. Yes, he’s had some sub-par albums in recent years, but I think that Recovery and especially this new album, which released November 5th, show that he hasn’t lost a step and remains one of the best lyricists and collaborators.

As mentioned in a previous Music Monday, Lorne and The Wayhighs would be announcing show soon. They’ve got a pretty awesome event lined up for New Years. Is it too early to start thinking about New Years Eve? Not when we’re talking about the Wayhighs first ever show in Yosemite at the 11th Annual Yosemite Bug New Year’s […]
Let me introduce to you the Dallas duet known simply as The O’s. Taylor Young and John Pedigo played together in various other bands before striking out alone on their guitar and banjo in 2008. These two can absolutely jam and really show it on their new album, entitled Thunderdog, which let’s be honest is one […]
First up we have a new track from a Seattle duo we featured a couple months back. Shelton Harris and Tyler Dopps just dropped a brand new song and as usual, it’s nothing short of great. It’s clear that Shelton Harris and Tyler Dopps always put 110% into everything they release. From solid production to lyrics, every song is on point.
Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino is making yet another appearance on Music Monday. We first brought Gambino to you back when his hit “Freaks and Geeks” blew up. CG is causing a buzz once again and this time we have a few tracks from his upcoming album, Because the Internet. The album is currently scheduled for a Dec. 10 release. This marks Gambino’s first project since he dropped his Royalty mixtape on July 4th of last year. Gambino can give us a typical hip-hop banger like “Worldstar” or a track with a mellower tone but one thing is certain; his wordplay never falters.
ATCR recently dropped their latest album, Nation II Nation, which includes tracks like “Sisters” and “Bread and Cheese” below. CW put it best, this music “Makes me want to play lacrosse!”
Today we’re checking in with two well-known “college rap” rappers that have been maturing over the last couple years… and moving away from the party rap scene into their own deeper genres.
This week’s Music Monday brings us yet another gem from the Pacific Northwest. Seattle lyricists Tiglo and Cole better known as Brothers From Another or BFA for short are a young duo hailing from Seattle. The Seattle Hip-Hop scene is quite impressive and BFA brings an “easy going flavor of the mid 90′s while maintaining a new school attitude in their lyrics.” The two have managed to put out 6 EP’s to date and only have a bright future ahead of them.
Our man Fritts is back with another stellar installment of Music Monday.
This week’s Music Monday focuses on an artist that is living in the shadows. Kendrick Lamar has virtually become a household name after the success of his highly acclaimed album good kid, m.A.A.d. city, and his now infamous “Control” verse. Kendrick, formerly known as K. Dot, is a member of Black Hippy, a group comprised of ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and Ab-Soul, all of which are on the indie label Top Dawg Entertainment. While many people are tuned into Kendrick, the talented Ab-Soul aka “The Black Lip Pastor” is easily overlooked.
Over the weekend while I was in Orem, Utah with Mark Donahue taking in the sights and sounds of LXM 801 I decided to take advantage of the opportunity and ask a few pros what they’ve been listening to. Check out Mark’s video below to find out; some of their responses might surprise you! Interested […]
Earlier this year, we introduced you to my favorite band, Blitzen Trapper, in ‘The Nemo Edition’ of Music Monday.
A few months back, I introduced you to two young emerging talents in the rap game, Logic and Chance The Rapper. Well those two have continued to impress me and recently put out some new singles that I wanted to bring to you as a follow up edition on this Monday night. Moving forward, don’t forget about these two as they continue to make noise and turn heads.
