Black Hippy - Rolling Stone
Black Hippy (2011)
This is the new shit. Black Hippy needs the hype of an Odd Future because they have the talent of a Wu-Tang. It is only a matter of time until this collective of Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q has a breakthrough song, tumbling onto internet fame and a record deal. This may not be it, but it certainly resonates with people containing an extensive knowledge of music history; the beat draws a sample from The Zombies “Time of the Season”.
A$AP Rocky - Palace [Produced by Clams Casino]
A$AP Rocky has definitely been getting a LOAD of hype lately. Between a $3 million record deal and a Pitchfork “Best New Music” nod, it’s hard to lose sight of what exactly he brings to the table. It’s blurry eyed rap with stellar production. On the mixtape, the production is what really drives it. Clams Casino produces this particular track and kills it. I’m a huge fan of his hazy, chanting beats and this is a great example of how large his productions can sound. If you’re into the underground rap scene, then you know this might be the sign of more breakthroughs into popular rap, bearing in mind if this project is a commercial success.
