iSH 'Seize The Day' feat. Cory Lee

Ever since I found this song the other day, I can't stop listening to it. Cory Lee sings such an inspirational chorus on the song, "Live as if you'll die today, cause it may be your last. Your never promised anything, so seize the day." This is one of those hip hop songs that has strong lyrics and I don't want to reuse the phrase, but paints a picture of what they're rapping about. You can feel the struggle in his voice and the inspiration from the chorus, just an all around great song. This is off of his debut mixtape "My Name is iSH," not sure when and if it has dropped already, but I'll update when I know.

Lil' Kim 'Black Friday (Nicki Minaj Diss)'

I wanted to post this yesterday, but it was mad late, but anyways lets get to it. Lil Kim > nicki minaj, it's as simple as that, when you start to have real lyrics in your rhymes talk to me, when you sell more records then Kim talk to me, when you stop with that voice change nonsense and put some effort in your lyrics TALK TO ME, but before then, sit down nicki minaj (you gets not caps over here). You can't come dissing Ms. Kimberly Jones and saying you destroyed every female in the rap game, HUH? When Remy come out you'll get destroyed, Lil Kim already has the heat, can you handle this snippet? Or do you need the full version before you stop talking and know your place?

Here's the snippet of the diss record, expect the full version out some time today.

*Edit* The full version is out, what do you have to say now nicki? Diddy? Young Money?

KiD CuDi 'Who I Am' feat. Dr. TIMe

I meant to post this a while ago when I first found it, but was too lazy/forgot to do it. The song isn't new it's been out atleast since February of this year, and it's by KiD CuDi and it features a German rapper by the name of Dr. TIMe called 'Who I Am.' It has that eerie, dark vibe that CuDi usually brings, and even though you (unless know German) can't understand what Dr. TIMe is saying it, but thankfully he has lyrics posted and it just adds to the whole feeling of the song. This song is creepy, but a good creepy which defines CuDi and his originality of telling a story and allowing the listener to get inside his mind through his music. If you like what you here, then I suggest downloaded Dr. TIMe's mixtape and checking out his myspace for more info.

Laze & Royal 'Skylines' feat. Nikki

I was just cruising looking for some new stuff to put up and I stumbled upon this gem. Don't know much about Laze & Royal (not surprising), but from the looks of it, they look like twins...kinda a little, not sure. Ha just looked it up and they are brothers and they're both 19 (still not sure if they're twins but whatevs) and they're a hip hop duo out of Los Angeles, they come from a musical background, and just from this song it looks like they have a promising career. The chorus of the song is so catchy and I'm in love with Nikki's voice on it, and the guys paint a picture with their lyrics on the song. Be on the look out for more of their music.

Carlos St. John 'Who Else But Me'

Another Tuesday has come and gone (but for those in a different time zone it may still be Tuesday) and yes I do have another highly anticipated Carlos St. John track for you all. This week he goes in on Ryan Leslie's 'All My Love' track and creates something uniquely his own. It's almost as though he's wishing us (the proud stock holders), who've followed him on this journey doing his "In Association" series. I like the almost sentimental reflection like 'Building My Empire' in this final track to end us off with. It's sad that this is our final track but you know what they say, "all good things must come to an end." If you've been skeptical of Carlos St. John before, listen to this or any other track he has out, be sure to download "The St. John Portfolio" mixtape, and be sure to look out for the "In Association" mixtape to drop December 14th. In between then, I wish you well.

Bed Stuy Dee 'Brooklyn Girl'

Some more local artists on the come up, if you rep Brooklyn (BK Stand Up), are from it, or even been/passed thru Brooklyn then you need/must know Bed Stuy Dee. He may just be a teen trying to make it in the music industry, but he deff shows a lot of promise with this track. Not to mention, I like it cause his voice is nice (idk what it is but that voice is niceeee). 'Brooklyn Girl' is that ode to those girls from Brooklyn that are just all around better than girls from other cities in NY (but they don't compare to CT girls lol). So if you are that 'Brooklyn Girl' Bed Stuy Dee is looking for then you deff gotta bump this track wherever you're at.

Look 'Keep on Pushin' feat. Millyz

Don't know much about the two, but what I do know is that they created a crazy nice track. I found it while in the search of some new stuff to put up, and while this track has been out a little while, it's still new to me and those who've never heard of either artist. I know (well read) that Millyz is a rapper out of the New England area (what what??? NE doing big things out here lol), Massachusetts to be exact, and I'm not sure where look is from (I can't really seem to find stuff on him right now), and Millyz has a couple mixtapes out and has been receiving good feedback from them I see. The song, 'Keep On Pushin' isn't something I'd usually put on here, but I couldn't resist, once you listen to it you'll be hooked. So I hope you enjoy and tell your friends to download and bump it as often as you can.

Carlos St. John 'Hustler 2.2 (Snippet)'

I know I know ya'll are like, what happened on Tuesday? I didn't get the new track, and when I did I've been too lazy to post it (sorry ya'll), but now that I'm on vacation I've got time to post, post, and post for you all. This week for Carlos St. John Day, it's switched up a bit, and we have a snippet of a track that features the one and only Azeem showing off his production skills (because we already know how amazing his voice is). No need to show off on someone else's beat so Carlos keeps it all original in this track, and I'm not sure if it's two tracks on here because the beat switches up towards the end, but either way both or this one track is crazy hot, and the full length version needs to be released ASAP. Once again, support Carlos St. John and his movement.

VersaEmerge 'Find Your Love (Cover)'

I've been in LOVEEE with this band for quite some time now, but I hadn't checked them out in forever so I decided to see what was up with the band and I stumbled onto this jewell. I'm not a fan of the original verion/Drake, but this cover is unbelievably good, Sierra's voice is UH-MAZ-ING and Blake sounds soooo good on here. If you don't know/haven't heard of VersaEmerge, I suggest you do some research and get to know them.

'Daddy's Lambo' by Yelawolf

Yelawolf is that white boy you NEED to get on. I posted his freestyle over that B.M.F. track earlier (read it here), and he's beginning to get that shine he deserves. He was on a cipher from the BET Hip Hop Awards (where he did the darn thing), and his album is due later this month (I believe). The track is 'Daddy's Lambo' and it's produced by Drama Beats (Rob Dyrdek's cousin, and he also produced this fire Keke Palmer track), and with Yelawolf rapping over it you know it's fire.Honestly you'll get hooked to the beat and rhymes in no time and blast it in your car while you're cruising. Get with Yelawolf or get lost. Trunk Muzik 0-60 haters.

Brand Nubian 'Brand Nubian'

I NEEDED to do a throwback, sorry I haven't posted lately, been busy with school stuff. I have a track from an up and coming artist, and the always anticipated new track for Carlos St. John Day tomorrow/today since it's after midnight right now lol. But let's get back to this track, I first heard it off of the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas soundtrack, and it's a track with great meaning that you all need to hear. No video, just an amazing song.

Chiddy Bang 'Pass Out (Music Video)'

I have been obsessed with this song as of late due to my sometimes awesome shuffle mode on iTunes and it's just so catchy. I have Chiddy's mixtapes (where you can find this song) and after I listened to it the first time I immediately needed/wanted to hear it a second time. The song is called 'Pass Out' which samples Tinie Tempah's 'Pass Out' beat and some if not all of the chorus, I've only listened to this version of the song and after listening to the original I still prefer this one. Not sure, it's just much more catchier I think. Oh and this deff needs more views than over 21,000.

'Building My Empire' by Carlos St. John feat. Azeem

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes you already know the deal. Today's Tuesday aka Carlos St. John Day and we do have another banger from the one and only Carlos St. John. This week he samples Drake's 'Light Up' beat and along with the help of Mr. Azeem they've created their own masterpiece. It's not as hard as some of his past stuff, it has that same kind of vibe as 'Ticker Tape Parade' (which is one of my personal favorites) and as usual Carlos does his thing on the track. What more can you ask for from him? People how many times do I have to tell you, get to know Carlos and tell your friends about him and get to supporting his Portfolio movement. As I listen to the song more and more it just keeps on growing on me. Here's something extra this week too, there's also a stellar video of Mr. St. John in the making of 'Building My Empire' so check it out after the music player. Without further ado, here's your weekly fix of Carlos St. John.

Rock City 'Morning Noon & Night'

Some new Rock City for ya'll. I put up a song by them a while ago (listen to it here), and they recently dropped a mixtape if anyone's interested. However, this hip hop/r&b with a hint of reggae duo has another single for ya'll produced by the one and only David Guetta. If you aren't familiar with David Guetta, get out from under that rock and check out the stuff he's produced, and if you haven't heard of Rock City get your act together and get them on your iPods/CD Players/Cassette Tapes, whatever you have. This is deff a club song to get everyone jumping, I hope they do well with this single and whatever else they put out.

KiD CuDi Performs 'Maniac' on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

I just peeped this, CuDi was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon the other night and performed 'Maniac' with Cage, The Roots and St. Vincent. Sweet performance and remember "Man on the Moon II: Legend of Mr. Rager" comes out November 9th. DON'T DOWNLOAD THE LEAKS, GO OUT AND SUPPORT A GENIUS AND BUY HIS ALBUM WHEN IT DROPS.

Kanye West 'Life of a Don' feat. Lil Wayne

I know this song has been out for like a month or so now, but I just started getting into it and I just loveee it. It's called 'Life of a Don' off of that G.O.O.D. A** Mixtape that came out a while ago, and it features Lil Wayne and both of them just make the song. I'm not a huge Lil Wayne fan (i think he's alright, his old stuff is WAYYY better than the stuff people be feening for nowadays) but he did his thing on the track (his lyrics are okay in relation to the song). The song just has this vibe that I can't really describe, but it's ridiculously good.

'Black and Yellow My Dougie'

My friend had posted this, and I listened to it and it's a really good mix. I'm not really a fan of Wiz Khalifa's 'Black and Yellow' (but Carlos St. John ripped it) and I've been on 'Teach Me How To Dougie' since last winter or so, but this mix is intense. Mad niceee and props to Henry for putting this together. Let me know what you think, idk if he has a download for it, but when/if there is one I'll post it.

'Lights in the Air' by Carlos St. John feat. Brook Yung

Yes today is tuesday (well more of the end of tuesday), but also known as Carlos St. John day if anyone was wondering. I know this drop is wicked late, but I was busy and then procrastinated doing homework and was just wasting time (as usual lol). But for those wondering this weeks Carlos St. John drop samples Diddy's Dirty Money's song 'Angel' and Carlos has solicited the help of fellow New York rapper Brook Yung (get to know him people, I know I will). The track kind of reminds me of Carlos' 'Blow Them Away' idk the feel just reminds me of it, but none the less the track is crazy. The song is crazy hot and as usual Carlos brings it once again, so people people people how many times do I have to tell you, STOP SLEEPING ON CARLOS ST. JOHN. Get with his music, team, become a Portfolio Stock Holder (like myself).

'It's My Party (Cover)' by Amy Winehouse

OMG just saw this today, and I've been waiting longgg for Amy Winehouse to make that long needed comeback. She has such a soulful/jazzy kind of voice that's just amazing and you can listen to it all day. When she first came out on the music scene I was like "wow who is she and I need to hear more from her," it's just too bad the whole drug scandal stuff had to interfere with her career, but hearing this sounds like she's ready to bring the world her gift of music once again. If you never listened to Amy Winehouse I suggest you do that right now, her voice is incredible and something you don't hear too often. The song isn't original, but she makes it her own, it's a cover of Lesley Gore's 'It's My Party' which came out in the 1960s, and with this remake Amy just and I don't want to repeat, but she really does make it her own song.
