We all have our own ways of celebrating Throwback Thursday! GMHH has thrown together a legendary Power Hour for you to enjoy! This mix will get the party started no matter where you are, guaranteed!
This is our first time posting videos of this dude, but araabMUZIK’s incredible talent never ceases to amaze me. I always had heard of him as a producer but once I saw videos of his performance I was hooked on this dude. I also love how his sound transcends and mixes between multiple genres. This dude has produced incerdible hip-hop bangers for the likes of Slaughterhouse, Eminem, A$AP Rocky, Swizz Beatz, and many more. At the same time, as portrayed in these videos, it is apparent that his live shows have an electronic sound to them crossing into dub and other EDM. If you have some time to kill and appreciate a talented young producer, check all three parts of this piece on araabMUZIK.
DJ Skee interviews star forward for the NBA Title contending Oklahoma City Thunder Kevin Durant about his love of hip-hop and the mesh of the culture with sports and especially basketball. This is not the first time we’ve seen NBA stars dabble in hip-hop but in my own opinion this is one of the most respectable crossovers I’ve seen. KD really seems to love the culture and promotes his artist Privaledge. James Harden, another baller for OKC also weighs in on the role of hip-hop in his life. Don’t forget to watch Durant go up against the Heat tonight in game 2 of the NBA Finals! Go Thunder!!
New Music: Mac Miller, French Montana, CyHi The Prynce, Chris Brown, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky, & MORE!
Been a minute since we took a big steaming New Music dump on all you guys. So here are some hot tracks for your weekend! First off we got a track from French Montana collaborating with Mac Miller. Mac Miller caught some heat from fans after the making of this song was portrayed in this video. Mac addresses his recreational drug use in a recent interview. Remember kids, making your own decisions is what the cool kids do.
We have one more track featuring Mac that actually just dropped today with Maseo from De La Soul!
This next track comes from Atlanta rapper CyHi The Prynce. This dude has been on his grind for the past couple years releasing some awesome mixtapes. He was actually the feature of our most recent edition of Freestyle Friday. His newest mixtape will be titled The Ivy League Club and is dropping real soon. This is the first track to leak from that tape and it features a verse from B.o.B and Travis Porter on the hook. It’s title is of course paying homage to his hometown of ATL. Not a bad collabo to start promotion for this mixtape.
Next up we have an incredible track from the colossal trio of Chris Brown, Big Sean, and Wiz Khalifa. They all come together for an amazing track titled Til I Die and will be off Chris Brown’s Fortune due to drop May 8th.
Now we have a dope new track that has had some big buzz. It’s a collaboration of Theophilus London and A$AP Rocky on a track called Big Spender.
This next track is A$AP Rocky’s lead single off his debut album LongLoveA$AP which is going to drop sometime soon (hopefully this summer). This track is produced by multi-platinum producer Hit-Boy and is absolutely incredible; a must-download.
Sean Brown is the newest member of Tha Alumni Music Group to release a new project titled Chapter 86: The Blind Art Collector. This is a banger off that mixtape featuring Kid Ink!
Nasty Nas checks in with some new beats, this one titled Black Girl Lost Part 2.
These next few songs begin to venture out of the realm of pure hip-hop and blend some music genres. This first collaboration is Wiz Khalifa and Maroon 5 for this jam titled Payphone.
This next track is a remix of the massive hit Stay Schemin’ with Rick Ross, Drake, and French Montana. Xaphoon Jones is one half of Chiddy Bang and knows his way around making dope electronic music and hip hop beats. This remix is on point.
This last track is for all the hip hop fans out there who also dabble in electronic and reggae. Damian Marley and Skrillex have gotten together to make an incredible dubstep/reggae jam that is sure to spice up your playlist if you’re looking for something different!
If there’s a genre of the moment that meshes quite well with hip-hop it has to be electronic music. Case and point: this new song and video from dubstep artist Bassnectar linking up with Lupe Fiasco to create an absolute banger! Lupe is no stranger to this genre either, he released a mixtape back in November full of dope verses over intense electronic tracks including work from Bassnectar. Great to see they have linked back up and continue to work together. This video may possibly melt your face so be warned in advance.
If you are new to Nardwuar, he might come off as a bit weird at first, but soon you will realize that this dude is probably the best at what he does. This interview, much like all of his interviews, is very insightful and always very enjoyed by whoever it is being interviewed. This time it’s none other than hip hop’s new favorite clique, A$AP Rocky and the A$AP Mob. Once you watch this interview and inevitably love it, be sure to check out his YouTube channel where you’ll find plenty more interviews by this dude with the likes of Lil Wayne, Mac Miller, Curren$y (twice), Casey Veggies, Big K.R.I.T., Kreyshawn, Ghostface, and MANY more.
Rick Ross continuing his constant supply of music and videos with a video for his song Swear To God off of his instant-classic mixtape Rich Forever. It’s become a regular thing to expect something from Maybach Music Group just about every other day if not more regular.
Wiz Khalifa drops a new video for his song Brainstorm off of his mixtape Taylor Allderdice that dropped last week. Wiz’s newest mixtape hasn’t even been available for a week and it has already been downloaded over 750,000 times on datpiff earning it a double-platinum title. This makes Wiz the only artist on that site with 3 mixtapes having that title.
