Naeem Oba-The Symbolism Mixtape

I realized a short while after starting this blog that I would have to post this and do a little review. This is really one of the wonders of myspace. I found this guy on a comment of one of my good musical friends. I decided to go to his page and check him out. His bio was one of the first things that got my attention. The tracks in his player sounded good and I noticed he had a mixtape available though Datpiff. I love getting new music and have got close to 100 mixtapes in the last year. So I grabbed a copy, like 17 tracks whoa! First time I rocked it in my iPod I was blown away. This dude has something to say and it's actually worth listening to. Tracks like 'Shoot Your TV' bring me back to hip-hop with a worth while message. Don't get me wrong though Naeem doesn't make every track super serious but does keep the Symbolism theme running. 'Sway' is definitely not message infused song but it has a great beat and catchy hook making it one of my fav's from this mix. So anyway don't just take my word for it here's the link. Go grab a copy and find out for yourself. If your feeling it go and shoot my man some feedback.

Free J Dilla Drum Kit

This is a really fresh kit. I use it mainly when I know I want a classic hip-hop sound. Although I can't name a track I did with it off the top of my head it's in my top 5-6 kits I go to first. Hope you enjoy the sounds.

New CD from Ill Lyrics 'Island Life'

Well it's finally available for digital sale. 'Island Life' is the second release from Ill Lyrics. This is an awesome CD. Positive message in the songs, some great local MC's like Midnight, Evo Freez and Curtis C. The sound is a great hip-hop vibe mixed with a bit of modern electronica. I did just over half the production on this so I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. Have a listen through the tracks here, thanks.
