Cam Meekins "Blazed & Confused (Mixtape)"

Cam Meekins, if you've never heard of him take a second while I put you onto him, he's a rapper out of the Massachusetts area, so shoutouts to the 413 and other area codes in Mass (lol). I've heard a couple of his freestyles and songs from Cam on his YouTube and I was impressed with his style and after hearing this 6 track mixtape entitled "Blazed & Confused" I'm thoroughly delighted by it. I wasn't totally sure what to expect, but Cam really did put his all into this tape and I hope you all are able to see the hard work that he's putting in as he gets deeper into the rap game. My favorite song off of "Blazed & Confused" would have to be 'Purple' at the moment. The song feels so real and he's really telling a story through his rhymes on this song and it's what really attracts me to the song. STOP SLEEPING ON CAM MEEKINS.

Kanye West & Jay-Z 'Otis (feat. Otis Redding)'

If you don't know, the man Kanye West aka Yeezy and the legend Jay-Z have/are teaming up to create a collab album named "Watch The Throne" set to release digitally on August 1st, and in stores on August 5th. One song off the album (which after they released the tracklisting is a bonus track) 'H.A.M.' has received mixed reviews, I on the other hand love that song forget all that illuminati talk and just take it as it is which is music, and now another leak off of the album has arrived. This one entitled 'Otis' which samples the late Otis Redding, and both Yeezy and Hov go off on the track and that oldies kind of vibe that the Otis Redding sample gives off helps to create something you can't stop listening to. I'm deff excited for this collaboration and I'm really anxious to hear what kind of stuff Kanye & Jay-Z bring to the album and who they invite for a feature as well. Be on the lookout for "Watch the Throne" early August.

Theophilus London & Kreayshawn 'Shrimp Pt. 2 (Prod. DJ Carnage)'

I haven't really been up on my Theophilus London ever since I posted about him a while back, and about his "This Charming Mixtape" and I do know he recently released some new music, and an album (I think), so I deff have to check that out. Kreayshawn, a recently signed rapper (or whatever you wanna call it) out of the bay area, is on the track with Theophilus and I'm not trying to knock Kreayshawn and whatever she's trying to do, but I'm not a fan. Her style is different, yes I'll give her that, but she's basic to me. Nothing is appealing to her rhymes, but people like it so I won't knock it. The song 'Shrimp Pt. 2' is produced by DJ Carnage, I don't know much about him, but he does have some nice mixes on his youtube account. The beat for this is out of control, and Theophilus straight killed it, but I think there should be another verse added on to really complete the song.

Carlos St. John 'Here We Are (feat. Azeem)'

It's been a minute since we've all (including myself) heard some new and hot music by the one and only Carlos St. John, but if you've been following his twitter you'd know that he recently released a new joint 'Here We Are' featuring none other than Azeem Salem on the hook and produced by The Argonauts. I don't know about ya'll, but I miss Carlos St. John Day when he would release something new and hot every Tuesday. I can't wait for him to drop a full length LP under a major label and doing the big things I know he has in store. 'Here We Are' is that track that compares Mr. St. John's life before while he was struggling and as Azeem sings "came from nothing" to the empire that Carlos St. John is the mastermind behind. If you want to hear more from the one and only Carlos St. John check out his official website, and check out the songs I've posted here as well.
