Fred’s earlier post reminded me to check out the soundcloud page for the d.o.t., @skinnermie’s new band, and the next thing I knew I had listened to 8 tracks in a row while working. This beat is uplifting and the title is just awesome.
When I close my eyes when I’m listening to this record, I’m transported back to my dad’s car parked in the driveway, enclosed in my little 8-year-old bubble listening to Top 40 radio, jamming out, pretending to cruise around driving his station wagon to the beach. I’m completely infatuated with it. Their new Something LP is definitely one of my favorite releases this year.
Aside: what’s with delivering the MP3s two weeks before the vinyl? You’d figure they’d do it the other way around…
Jay-z x Beanie Sigel x Margin Gaye - Ignorant Shit
I eluded to this song a couple days back. The brilliance is in the lyrics.
I missed the part where it stopped being about Imus; What do my lyrics got to do with this SHIT? SCARFACE the movie did more than Scarface the rapper to me Still that ain’t the blame for all the shit that’s happened to me Are you saying what I’m spitting, Is worse than these celebutantes showin’ they kitten, you kidding? Lets stop the bullshittin’ Til’ we all without sin, let’s quit the pulpit-ing SCARFACE the movie did more than Scarface the rapper to me Still that ain’t the blame for all the shit that’s happened to me Lets stop the bullshittin’ Til’ we all without sin, let’s quit the pulpit-ing, c’mon!

Nas x AZ x Nosaj Thing - Life’s An Aquarium (Trevor Morgan Mashup)
After the successful mashup of Avicii x Adventure Club, Trevor Morgan is back with a new mashup involving Nas’ classic “Life’s A Bitch” and Nosaj Thing’s “Aquarium”. I’m a fan of mashups and this is one of the better ones I’ve listened to in 2012 so far.
