[Hip/Hop] Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa – That Good

No sticks, no seeds, no…. Wiz Khalifa and Snoop keep it fresh for the New Year with this mellow “fade-hop” track. Bouncin off his latest hit “Black and Yellow” this track further cement’s Khalifa’s prescence in the mainstream hiphop scene.

The beats being subtle allow the lyrics to come through. Can’t get mad a Snoops part, and Wiz Khalifa’s verse definitely shines through strongly at the 1:47 mark. It’s not a Black and Yellow, but definitely sit back and relax. Certainly a green track.

Jon Solo & The Incomparable Shakespeare – Tell Me You’re Crazy

Given a self titled name such as the “Incomparable Shakespeare” only leaves you wanting to compare… but once you listen, you get it. You get why Brooklyn native, lyricist, and now hip-hop playlist staple cannot be compared. With his latest track “Tell me You’re Crazy”, The Incomparable Shakespeare is met with Jon Solo, an indie/folk styled artist, who provides some amazing music and vocals to accompany hip-hop lyrics and attitude. On the exterior the song gives you the atmosphere of a Midwest country bar, but the instance the first word is spoken, you’ll know that this is something much more.

You get the best of both worlds in one dose, and it works.

[Indie/Rock] The Walkman – Angela Surf City

Expect to be transported. “Angela Surf City” is a song full of soul, rhythm, and a deep passion for every lyric that is sung. Besides being fittingly titled, the beats are similar to “The Ventures”. The Walkmen have avoided the over synthetic feel that most rock music has now days, and gives the listener an experience that they are at a live performance. The percussion is not over-bearing, and definitely compliments every word with distinctive sounding surf city music.

The Walkmen are originally from New York and can be described as a grass roots garage band… turned successful. They have risen with popularity in the recent years and have taken strides by landing a world tour, and in Europe performing alongside “The Black Keys”. Their next U.S. stop is December 2nd at the famed “Terminal 5” venue in New York City.
