Super Music Monday: Super Nike Nando- U KNOW NANDO?

*cue Super Mario sound* Yes ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Mcfly, Mr. Asshole, Mr. DMG, himself has hit us once again with a mixtape for the Hip-Hop History books. Now signed to Hollafame Music, lead by Jay Fe$h Kick$ (after some recent confrontation and backlash from his previous followings), Nando shows he is still standing and fighting for his art. Almost K.O.'d the tape wit a track entitled "Motion Picture" but he only gave us a snippet. I bet you 20 bucks after the intro your gonna be hooked. DMG.

Mixtape Monday: Mr. Focus- I Hate Mondays 2

I found this tape through Datpiff's sponsored mixtapes like last monday. Its been exactly a week and im still bumpin to his mixtape. What attracted me to the mixtape was the cover art. It was dope and to my surprise, so was the artist. I suggest you give him a listen. hes representing NYC, but I had no idea because his flow and style is different from the others. Check him out and see for yourself mane.

Mixtape Monday: Asher Roth- Seared Foie Gras W/ Quince & Cranberry

What was Mr. Roth thinking when he named this mixtape? O well, Ive been waiting on this tape for awhile and was too happy when Asher dropped this last week. He is one of few artist that can fuse humor with dope lyrics and keep it consistent. If you liked his previous mixtape collabo with DJ Drama n DJ Cannon "The Greenhouse Effect", then you would love this. Enjoy people.

Mixtape Monday: Lola Maxwell- Basik Edukation

Lola Maxwell will not be stopped. She's one of the most consistent female emcees coming out of DC. I know her personally and she is very passionate about her craft and you can hear it through her music. She covers some ill songs like Drake's "Over", Wale's "World Tour", Kid Cudi's "Persuit of Happiness", and amongst others. I definitely recommend you add this to your itunes library. SIMPLEX x Lola Maxwell apparel are right around the corner too.

"Victory Lap" by Marky (Prod. by Kanye West)

Something new from a good friend. Marky gets his hands on one of Kanye's OG beats and does work! He releases a track entitled "Victory Lap".

(Click Photo To Download)

(Via Marky) "I had this track for a min now. It’s an original Kanye West produced track from the “Through The Wire” days. I received it from a mutual connect to him because I was going to possibly be doing work with them (not Kanye). Anyway – dude gave me an entire cd full of all original Kanye beats.

This song is spear-heading my first EP “Journey to Markyland, USA: Rest Stop 1″ Presented by 2DopeBoyz. I will be releasing 3 EP’s leading into my mixtape “43 Miles to Markyland, USA”!"
