Project Pat - Mista Don’t Play (Hypnotize Minds, 2001)
I don’t know why or how Mista Don’t Play is up for free on Livemixtapes but you should take advantage of this and bang “North North” loudly on repeat until your neighbors call the cops.
Starlito - Insomnia Addict (Grind Hard, 2013)
Save this one for when you are suffering from a real life bout of insomnia and don’t sleep.
I made a list of rap songs for the internet.
Shy Glizzy - “Awesome” (Glizzy Gang, 2013)
Chickens in my coupe, this a fuckin chicken coop.
This is a pretty common sentiment that I recognize from recent conversations with other members of the 2010-2011 blog rap class and it’s beyond depressing. Just goofing off is what made all of that shit interesting in the first place.
If the music isn’t your cup of tea, the hustle of Kid Rock was super real and his story is VERY hip-hop for those of you perpetual adolescents who still care about that kind of shit. Another classic Grand Royal moment. Enjoy.
Yes wow so much rare history in this piece from rocking linear tracking turntables on Electrifying Mojo to sharing studio space with Awesome Dre and Prince Vince to tripping balls in Jersey City with Melle Mel to running guitars directly into an MPC-60. Kid Rock is hip-hop as fuck.
It’s a good enough interview that I’m even willing to look past the ridiculous second paragraph about Midwestern rap or the part where Rock calls Poor Righteous Teachers “faggot motherfuckers” and “Poor Righteous Creatures,” which I assume is just him being an insecure whiteboy.
Lil Silk - “Rapper” (Soundcloud, 2013)
Imagine a world where Young Thug is more influential than ASAP Whoever. Let’s make that world our world.
Mob Squad - “Get On My Level” (2009)
