Red Pill – Please Tip Your Driver

The first time I heard the track Please Tip Your Driver, I played it over and over.  Shortly after, I hit up Red Pill and wanted to get the low down on the track.  It’s the first single from his album with the same title.  At the time when I first heard it, the album Please Tip Your Driver, didn’t have a release date, and a few months later it is here!  I have to tell you Please Tip Your Driver is a MUST have. Dead End Road, I Understand, YouCanMakeLifeCanMakeYou every track is like a short story that you can relate to.  I don’t know what else Red Pill’s got in the works, but he’s one to look for. Download Red Pill – Please Tip Your Driver from his site.  BIG thanks to Red Pill for making real hip hop. Keep doing you.

Buff1 – It’s A 1derful Life

Buff1 - It's A 1derful Life I first heard of Buff1 years ago from my friend Dahlia when he dropped Pure. Moving Along (ft. Tiffany Page) & For U were my joints.  From then until now he’s dropped many joints, featured on ton’s of tracks, and joined forces with many heavy hitters like Rhettmatic (Crown Royale).  It’s A 1derful Life is a rundown of some projects and features that Buff1 has done, and it’s hosted by DJ Rhettmatic. It’s A 1derful Life is filled with high energy tunes that will make you dance.  In an earlier B+C post, the great folks at A Side Worldwide let us know this was coming, and it’s been in heavy rotation since.  Download Buff1 – It’s A 1derful Life here.  BIG thanks Steph for the heads up.  You’re a rock star.

Marv Won – The Way Of The Won

Marv Won - Way Of The WonFirst off, if you don’t follow HouseShoes on Twitter, you’re sleeping. Now to the music. Marv Won’s Way Of The Won hits hard.  The first track, Rite Back, had me hooked. What Up came on and that’s when the volume got cranked up.  I can’t talk about each track here, but i’m telling you, I haven’t skipped a track yet.  From the banging beats to the storytelling style flows, you’ll see why this is in B+C’s heavy rotation.  Download Marv Won – The Way Of The Won here. BIG thanks HouseShoes for the heads up.

Ro Spit – The OH S#!T Project

Ro Spit - The OH S#!T ProjectI’m rounding out the year with stuff I’ve had in heavy rotation, and now I’m bringing it to you. It’s taken me a while to write about Ro Spit’s The OH S#!T Project because I keep playing it. Best way to describe it is “…more than a mixtape, but not quite an album.” nevertheless, still a banger. Ro Spit is one you shouldn’t sleep on. The OH S#!T Project has been out for a few months, and gets better and better every time I play it. Ro Spit also put his own spin on Jay-Z’s track (Empire) Renaissance State Of Mind that reps his city. Just download it NOW! Download Ro Spit – The OH S#!T Project from his site. BIG thanks Ro Spit for making The OH S#!T Project.

The Lyricists – Transmittin’ Live!

lyricists_coverDigging around I finding an artist which lead me to BMORE Original Records. That then lead me/stumbled upon to The Lyricists. Michigan is cranking out hit maker, after hit maker right now. I wasn’t surprised to find some dope folks there, but The Lyricists’ Transmittin’ Live! isn’t the typical MI sound.  They have these dark (but fun) laid back beats with this dope story telling rhyming style. I’m thinking of a group to compare them to, but you’d have to tweak whomever you came up with to get a sound like this. Transmittin’ Live! is dope, so cop it. I’m usually all about free stuff, but this is totally worth the buy.  Buy  Transmittin’ Live! online at CDBaby now. The Lyricists wanted want to throw out a free track, so download Rules of Attraction here. BIG thanks to BMORE Original Records and The Lyricists for making banging music. Check out The Lyricists at MySpace and Twitter.

14KT – Nowalataz

14KT - NOWALATAZ14KT’s Nowalataz is one of the reasons I don’t sleep. Dope stuff comes out any time of the day. I got an email from the fam at A-Side Worldwide about 9pm, but I went jogging…and didn’t read it until 11pm. If I slept on this a little longer I would have missed the boat.

I read the title Nowalataz, and it gave me flashbacks of that hard ass candy that could take your tooth out if you chewed it wrong. Nowalataz is nothing like that. 14KT drops some sweet tracks on your ears. Now these are Donut inspired tracks from 2006, and you know how sweet that was. Just like Donuts, Nowalataz is going straight into heavy rotation on the ipod. Take the time to read how these beats came about. It will inspire you. Download 14KT – NOWALATAZ (2nd option link here) while you still can. It will only be up for a week! Check out what 14KT is up to on MySpace or Twitter. BIG thanks to Stephanie for the heads up.

Adrian Champion X White Stripes X Hip Hop

starsstripes_front_coverOk I didn’t have time to do all my homework on this, but I thought this is totally worth the post. I’m a fan of the White Stripes, and you know I’m all about the hip hop. My friend Reth shot this link over to me and I was like, “WTF?!? That is dope!” I downloaded it and have been listening to it all morning.
