Hip Hop Culture for Grown-Ups
“A Vintage State Of Mind” [Mixtape]
Fokis & friends pay homage to the east coast & west coast legends who literally paved the way for today’s raptopia. Hosted By Sadat X & DJ Chonz. A definite listen to if you appreciate boom bap, classic features, & raps with substance.
“I Do It For My City”
The rapper formally known as A.Driver represents where he’s from & where he’s going on this energy-filled thumper. This is that music to do push-ups to. “The S.E.X. Tape” album coming soon.
“Dinner With Jack Donaghy” [Free EP]
This follow-up to 2011’s “Audio Arcade” features production from BKS, Epik, & Bravestarr. He gets 2 points for the title, & another for being so futuristic.
JaeWon feat. Peter Krafft
“Long Live The King” (Prod. ID Labs)
Krafft assists with the hook on Jae’s latest. This is the song you play before work. Real work, not fake work. Look out for the “Hometown Hero” album coming spring 2012.
J.Nolan feat. Rizz Capolatti
“Hit ‘Em” (Prod. oriJanus)
The first single from The Manifest Movement compilation, “Dreams Manifest.” Nolan knows the formula; it’s hard to lose with fresh rhymes & mellow loops.
