Mixtape Review-Come As You Are by Audio Push

Mixtape Review-Come As You Are by Audio Push by Dan-O The title track on Come As You Are is the first song after the intro and has far less to do with the Nirvana song as it does The Pharcyde. It acts as a microcosm of the tracks that come after it. Nostalgia is aContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Come As You Are by Audio Push”

Song Review-Gone For A Minute by Humbo County

Song Review-Gone For A Minute by Humbo County by Dan-O This is the last song on a mixtape called Urple Vapes and it stands as a pretty sharp contrast to the rest of the music before it.

Mixtape Review-Dick Brown’s Tall Tails of Foxy Cottontail by Go! Ricky! Go! Produced by DJ Burn One

Mixtape Review-Dick Brown’s Tall Tails of Foxy Cottontail by Go! Ricky! Go! Produced by DJ Burn One by Dan-O This mixtape is probably a concept album about falling for a stripper in Atlanta and realizing that chasing her isn’t worth it.

Song review-Fruit Snacks & Cups of Patron by Kyle produced by Beni Haze

Song review-Fruit Snacks & Cups of Patron by Kyle produced by Beni Haze by Dan-O The reason to like this song and any others off of Kyle’s new mixtape Beautiful Loser is that stupidness is valuable.

Mixtape Review-King Chip-44108

Mixtape Review-King Chip-44108 by Dan-O Who is King Chip? He’s the sound coming through the weed smoke in fleets of Fleetwoods, the head nodding stimuli in clusters of Caddy’s all throughout the Midwest. Before his new mixtape 44108 came out I felt like it was going to be important. I was nervous. Chip is notContinue reading “Mixtape Review-King Chip-44108”

Mixtape Review-Bo Deal-Thug Education 101

Mixtape Review-Bo Deal-Thug Education 101 by Dan-O The seismic split between the Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame sides of Brick Squad might not seem like the splintering of Genghis Khan’s empire after his death (It really shouldn’t) but it does mark a profound chaotic time for the participants and fans. Each and every memberContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Bo Deal-Thug Education 101”

Song of the Year-Count on Me by Lucki Eck$ produced by Hytman 1

Song of the Year-Count on Me by Lucki Eck$ produced by Hytman 1 by Dan-O For a purist hip hop’s importance is in its four elements but I’ll be honest…I don’t do much break dancing or graffiti. For the new school purist it’s about two things the classics and the new blood. The classics endureContinue reading “Song of the Year-Count on Me by Lucki Eck$ produced by Hytman 1”
