SoundCloud: Bobby Shmurda ft. Jah X, Junior Reid, Mavado & Popcaan “Hot N*gga” (Reggae Mix)

Let’s just say that it was about time we got some Reggae artists on this beat to “shmurda” it. As eclectic as the neighborhoods of Brooklyn are, especially within its various West Indian/Caribbean communities, it was only right that the BK rapper recruited Jah X, Junior Reid, Mavado & Popcaan for the “reggae mix” to his hit single “Hot N*gga.”

We’re in a time where New York hip hop is in a, let’s say, transitional period. Where their latest, biggest artist aren’t giving us that “New York sound” that we’re use to. I.e. A$AP Rocky or French Montana.  Not saying New York can’t grow but when I want my fix of that gritty New York hip hop, PUSH! is one of the few MC’s I go to. This record/video, “Black Mask” is what I like to hear out of New York, especially in 2013.

Our Girl Speakerfoxxx just linked up with fashion designers Dee & Ricky for a collaboration mixtape, peep it out. Some summer fly sh*t.

“The Dee + Ricky + Speakerfoxxx Mixtape Collab is the first in a series of mixtapes that ATL’s own Speakerfoxxx has launched this year where she combines her two notable passions : music and fashion. Creating a playlist that curtails & compliments a brand is an undertaking that wouldn’t seem like a daunting task to a DJ like Speakerfoxxx whose love for fashion is as obvious to her fans as her skills as a turntablist. So to premiere this mixtape series Foxxx paired with NY twin designers & entrepreneurs Dee & Ricky, basing the mixtape inspiration around their recent collabs with PONY & Joyrich.”

I’ll admit this song had to grow on me. Being unfamiliar with Taahir, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Feeling his sound, but I need to hear more from the rapper turned singer. I’ll keep an eye open for his upcoming EP, The Balance, presented by Play Cloths releasing this Summer. Directed by Sean Phazes.

I don’t know which I’m anticipating more: the release of OMFGOD or Jay Electronica’s Act II: Patents of Nobility. Both are rumored to be finished, but most likely Yasiin Bey and Mannie Fresh will release sooner. I can’t say I’m mad about that either. Thank you, sweet Black Jesus!

What do you do on a 6-hour roadtrip from Charlotte, NC to Nashville, TN other  than being bored out of your fucking mind?

Well, that’s what I did… This is Emilia Ortiz, a 20-something New Yorker from Brooklyn, who likes to smoke a lot of pot and transform pretty girls into even prettier girls once they sit in her make-up chair.  (more…)
