Toronto’s resident bad girl MC, Tasha the Amazon has dropped a pair of heaters in the past couple weeks. Y’all dig? You know what my takeaway from listening to them was though? Don’t invite Tasha over to your crib if you just bought a new couch. Ouch!
This Angel Haze joint is a banger, don’t sleep!
A little #TBT post. Partially posted to prove to a friend who thinks I’m prejudiced against Gunplay and Chief Keef unnecessarily (even though I’ve posted music by both of them). I happen to think both in their past have, frankly, been a cancer on hip-hop but Gunplay seems to have matured and I’m willing to admit when either of these dudes is catching a bad break and to post music by them when it’s actually good. Having Kitchen favorites, Stalley and Curren$y on board too doesn’t hurt either!
Yasiin Bey‘s commentary on the spate of police brutality cases in the US inspired by graffiti and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Love!
Two salvos in the #DrakevsMeek war and a couple other CDQ’s for tracks Aubrey premiered on his new Apple Music OVO radio show. Or am I wrong here? I’ve been told that “Hotline Bling” might be another dis track??
My take on this in this so-called beef could be way off but I feel like Meek Mills, after opening this can of worms, has been largely M.I.A. and taking crazy L’s? Dude was here in The 6 last night on his girl, Nicki Minaj‘s Pinkprint Tour and, with the eyes of the whole world (or at least hip-hop twitter) on him, was poised to drop a neutron bomb in response to Drake’s dis tracks and then… nothing??! Someone s’plain this to me, please!
Beef aside though, as a bonus, hit the jump for Drake’s cameo on Wizkid‘s “Ojuelegba (Remix)” also featuring buzzy UK grime MC, Skepta which dropped a couple weeks back ICYMI:
Second premiere of the week after the DJ Emkay remix of Fetty Wap‘s “RGF Island” this past Tuesday??! The Kitchen got its swagger back! Check out this traptastic, hip-hop flavored original track by the west coast-based duo, Neza x Alxndr. Peep the full bio: NEZA x ALXNDR are 2 musicians based in LA making hip-hop […]
Been a while since we’ve done some formal Different Kitchen Premieres around these parts but stay tuned as we have plans to do more moving ahead. First up though is up-and-coming Miami-based DJ/Producer, Emkay who has teamed up with The Kitchen to present his latest remix, a nice electro bass flip of rapper du jour, […]
Unlike my Favorite Albums of 2014 List posted yesterday there is some sense of what was more liked versus less liked here on my Favorite Songs (not necessarily just singles) List of 2014. The Top 10 is the 10 songs I voted for in this year’s Village Voice Pazz and Jop poll and my number […]
I explained pretty well the criteria I used to do my year-end list back in 2012 but for those of you too lazy to click that link, this is not a list of the ‘best’, most commercially successful or most critically acclaimed albums. The only acclaim these albums have are that they are my favorites. […]
What can I say about Melbourne, Australia’s Audego? I discovered this trip hop electronic soul duo while doing a little side gig hustle screening submissions for NXNE this year and I have been a committed fan ever since checking out both of their shows when they flew halfway around the world to perform twice at […]
