Mixtape Review-Long Live The King by King Mez

Mixtape Review-Long Live The King by King Mez by Dan-O Long Live The King is a buried treasure mixtape. On its surface you think you miss the overwhelming bang, rumble or finger snap. The braggadocio is strong funny and well placed “Well I’m Reggie Miller…pull up with the range (Reggie Miller)!” but most of theContinue reading “Mixtape Review-Long Live The King by King Mez”

Song Review-Richer Dad by Sonnie Carson produced by DR Period

Song Review-Richer Dad by Sonnie Carson produced by DR Period by Dan-O When I first heard the mixtape Most Likely to Succeed I started telling everyone about it. Carson has an old school NY tough guy DITC feel to his flow even when he’s rapping about normal things. The contrast between the “I took yourContinue reading “Song Review-Richer Dad by Sonnie Carson produced by DR Period”

Six Degrees of Drake

Six Degrees of Drake by Dan-O The widespread success of Drake has caused the spread of a new sound. Does anyone remember when Ghostface Killah started doing sing heavy hooks and it was controversial? People were mad and questioning how hardcore his music was…now being able to sing or fake sing the chorus (sometimes severalContinue reading “Six Degrees of Drake”

Mixtape Review- Alley Shakur: The Soul of a Runaway Slave by Alley Boy by Dan-O I think a lot of us are conditioned (through Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix examples) to believe that our most important artists burn brightly for a short moment and then leave the stage forever. It’s only as you get older thatContinue reading “Mixtape Review- Alley Shakur: The Soul of a Runaway Slave by Alley Boy”

Song Review-How U Feel by Fat Trel produced by Harry Fraud

Song Review-How U Feel by Fat Trel produced by Harry Fraud by Dan-O Trel’s new mixtape Gleesh feels like the proving ground for the number one Maybach Music question: does the luxuriously clean production style of the label fit the gritty goon content of the roster? Fat Trel is full of violent bluster with aContinue reading “Song Review-How U Feel by Fat Trel produced by Harry Fraud”

EP Review-IVRY by 100S

EP Review-IVRY by 100S by Dan-O Pimp rap is a hard thing to explain support of. All you can say is that when it works its amazing. The job of a pimp is to make you choose his or her services, so a great pimp rap musical experience should be just as engaging; something thatContinue reading “EP Review-IVRY by 100S”

Song Review-Bompton by YG produced by DJ Mustard

Song Review-Bompton by YG produced by DJ Mustard https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-RIYI3z2xs by Dan-O This sounds worse than it is but a lot of music people simply thought of YG as an appendage of DJ Mustard. He can organize the Mustard sound with his energy and flow but without it he’s ok at best. This all changed withContinue reading “Song Review-Bompton by YG produced by DJ Mustard”
