[Hip-Hop] Dag Savage (Johaz & Exile) California Dreamin’ Feat. Fashawn & Co$$ (Prod. Exile)

With the cold weather dropping in without any warning (other than the turn of the page on my calendar), it’s easy to fondly imagine an alternate lifestyle out in California, with days spent on the beach kicking up sand and relaxing in the sun. Well, Dag Savage is here to remind us that life in the Golden State isn’t all sunshine and smiles. Just like everybody else, the folks there have their daily struggles as well. While the title “Cali Dreamin” sounds warm and idealistic, the content of the song touches on much harsher realities in regards to poverty and violence. Johaz, along with fellow left coasters Fashawn and Co$$, all reflect on their own rough upbringings over a melodic looping piano brought courtesy of the always excellent Exile. Although this track isn’t featured on any specific projects just yet, stay tuned for more Dag Savage in the near future. I have a feeling you’ll like what you hear.

[Hip-Hop] Blu – Lemonade (Prod. Beat Make Jake)

Isn’t it refreshing to hear Blu and Exile working together? Almost as refreshing as lemonade on a hot summer day, right? Featuring a sample from Gang Starr‘s “DWYCK,” this new track serves as a reminder to us that lemonade is just as popular as it was back in the 90’s. While Beat Make Jake is behind the boards on this one, Exile adds some more flavor to this sweet track through his scratches, helping to provide that classic boom-bap 90’s vibe. Coupled with some ill raps from Blu himself, this track is bound to be a classic. If you’d like a vinyl copy for yourself, you better hurry, because they’re available in limited quantity from Jakarta Records.
