Kawan Debose is “Exposed” Mixtape

Kawan Debose has released his new mixtape “Exposed”.  This is his first project after his album “Vintage Soul”, which was released in 2009.  Kawan is in a special class that wears three hats, as writer, producer, and thankfully singer.  On this mixtape, there is a great collection of songs, that will show you his talents of all three.

There are a few songs that standout to me.  First would be his version of Adore You, by Prince.  Not many people can pull off a Prince song, but Kawan does it well. Second would be “Rolling In the Deep”, which has been a song made popular by Adele on her album “21”.  he is able to added a additional depth and emotion to it that, wasn’t present before.  Most importantly, the song “Crazy”, which is from “Vintage Soul”. It really shows his range.

Now all these great songs are packaged nicely, and available to you for FREE.  So, you have no reason not to pick this up and enjoy what Kawan Debose has to offer you. You will be surprised and pleased.

Fresh from the Fridge: Devi Dev and Terrace Martin- Here, My Dear (mixtape EP)

Man do I have one hell of a treat for yall and it come’s in the form of this EP by my fellow gorgeous  Halfrican Devi Dev and West Coast super producer/ rapper Terrace Martin titled “Here, My Dear.”

Terrace stated the EP is inspired by Marvin Gaye’s critically acclaimed 1978 album of the same name, “Here, My Dear” which showcases the raw & varying emotions of love in a Hip Hop form, On this project Terrace blends his live instrumentation and production with new Hip Hop elements with some dope feature’s like Snoop Dog, Kurupt, Charlie Wilson, Wiz Khalifa, and U-N-I- just to name a few. I’ve had this album on repeat since I got it and can safely say it’s a breath of fresh air as well as a masterpiece. Every track on the album is dope and gives you a little bit of everything. Great production, lyrics, content, vocals, comedy, and structure. Even the interludes on the album are nice where they showcase Devi Dev keeping it very real as her and Terrace chop it up about various love/ relationship related questions over samples of Marvin Gaye’s original version of this up to date album. I can relate to everything they chop it up about as I’m sure you all will like “turkey burgers and good sex.” hahaha

And just when you think the album is dope you have the 3 in 1 video that showcase’s 2 of the best songs off the album in a short film format that tells Terrace’s situation with serious and funny moment’s starting from the end and rewinding all the way to the beginning like one of my favorite movies “Memento.” Big ups to Aplusfilmz for putting it all together.

Fresh from the Fridge: Jay-Z vs Coldplay- Viva La Hova (mixtape)

What’s up Soulifiedians?! It’s ya boy Black Milk aka Negro Leche and I’m bringing you another heater of a mixtape like the past few except this time I’m bringing one hell of a “Mash Up” album!

For those that are big Jay-z fans it’s been a hot sec since he’s gone up against an alternative band. November 30, 2004 to be exact when him and Linkin Park battled it out on they’re super dope album Collision Course which I still bump to this day before I compete in my karate tournament’s. This particular one is considered a “mixtape”.  It sounds like an album that both Jay Z and Coldplay did in the studio, with J spitting and Coldplay melodies.  All over crazy production from some of the dopest producers in the game like 9th Wonder. This is a must have for any Jay Z fan and it just might open you up to Coldplay and they’re genre of music as well.

3) Know My Place (produced by The Amps)

Lil Wayne- I’m Not A Human Being EP (album preview)

Being locked up in jail hasn’t slowed Lil Wayne down at all! Dude has released just as many music videos, freestyles and guest features during his stay at Ryker’s Island then he ever has. Wayne’s manager compiled I’m Not a Human Being, an EP of all new material set to be released for download on Wayne’s birthday (Sep 27th). The album is pretty much being put out as an appetizer for fan’s till the main course in Tha Carter 4, Wayne’s next studio album which will be released the day he gets out.

The album is all around dope even if the lyrics are old prior to Weezy getting locked up. The production is nice as well as the features. Def pick this one up yall. Also expect a physical release to follow the downloadable version October 12th.

Wayne managed to have a video made of “Single” before he got locked away which is pretty dope and just a majority of raw recordings put together.

“I’m Single”

Fresh from the Fridge: Diggy Simmons- Airborne (mixtape/ video)

Yes you read and saw it right! Rev Runs little son Diggy is now rapping and has his own mixtape out and brace yourself for this one… IT IS FIYAH!!!!

When I first heard little Diggy (now 15 years of age by the way) was rapping and had a mixtape out the first thing that came to mind is it’s probably wack as all hell like his brother Jojo’s material with his group Team Black out and more then likley is was kiddy crap that was ghost written by a hired rapper from his pops or Uncle Russel. I’m not one to not have a closed mind and not give something a try so I did and boy let me tell you all the above that came to mind went right out the window after listening to the first track where he does spoken word and I was immediately hooked to hear what else he would come with behind that and on every track he spits versatile bars. Diggy is def for real yall! What really confirmed the realness is this interview he did with Good Fellas Radio. Visually he’s def grown from last seeing him on “Runs House” and on top of that his vocabulary and what he had to say in this interview pretty much confirmed that he more then likely doesn’t have a ghost writer and Atlantic wouldn’t have signed him.

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06RaqlknoMQ

Here’s one of the 2 freestyles Dig did to Nas Made You Look that caught the attention of labels where he eventually choose Atlantic…

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcM6p7pT4-o

What makes this a great mixtape for me is the fact that it doesn’t sound like a mixtape at all. Great production my fairly unknown producers. No Dj’s fuckin up the tracks. It has a great theme through out the whole album. Diggy’s versatility and content is nice. Nice features. And the tracks are just all around nice and all this is coming from a 15 year old! For all that I can’t help but give this album the score I did below. #2 is my shit! Even the Chris Brown feature where Chris sings and spits is dope. Download it and see what I’m talking about and let me know what you think here and be on the look out for Dig in the very near future. Shout out to my ninja James P. Morgan!

Drake and Nicki Minaj Tie The Knot?! (news/mixtape)

Yes you heard it right! Drake and Nicki Minaj tie the knot!!!! I mean are yall really that shocked? I mean Drake did say he’d “Fucking do it” in his new single “Miss Me” and I quote…

I love Nicki Minaj
I told her I’d admit it
I hope one day we get married just to say we fuckin’ did it
And girl, I’m fuckin’ serious
If you wit it then I’m wit it
‘Cause yo verses turn me on and your pants are mighty fitted, ugh

“Miss Me” (quote is at 2:07)

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRLSQDCkcaA

The big announcement came via both the stars Twitter accounts with Nicki asking Drake Friday afternoon (August 27)….

The tweets even caught the attention of down south rapper Slim Thug as he tweeted ” F*ckk I lost anotha @nickiminaj” Ok  now that I’ve got some of you with your mouth’s dropped and shocked with all thee above I have to break some more official news to you. When reps for both Drake and Nicki Minaj were asked if the news of the marriage was true they confirmed that rappers did not really tie the knot, though both tweeted that they did earlier that day. So whats up with all the twying? (twitter+lying= twying) lol If you ask me I think it’s one hell of an ingenious marketing/ publicity stunt with Drake just dropping the “Miss Me” single. Can you imagine how many people are looking up this single right now? Or how many people are adding both they’re twitters and looking they’re picture’s up? Shout out to Nicki Minaj’s booty by the way. lol

With the short lived celebration of the fake marriage thought I’d hit yall with a joint mixtape by both the rappers.  Expect Nicki Minaj to  release her long-awaited debut album, Pink Friday, on November 23.
