So, it’s finally here. It’s been much blogged about, much anticipated, debated and discussed. It’s the first official release by Tyler the Creator of LA teen rap collective, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All. Receiving acclaim from the likes of Mos Def, Kanye West, and various blogs (not including 2dopeboyz and naahright) this has to be one of the “it” releases of 2011. I’ve had about two weeks to give this album and Tyler’s movement a good looking over and analysis, and this is what I got. Click below to read the full review.
Today, Nova Scotian hip hop royalty (that sounds like an oxymoron, I know) releases his fourteenth album, Handshakes and Middle Fingers. If you've heard and dug his latest single, 'That Aint Classy' you would know that this is an album worth listening. Classified has always put out great material, and I'm sure that this new track won't dissappoint.
Last night, XXL Freshmen Class of 2011 member, Mac Miller, released his latest mixtape, Best Day Ever. You can cop it from Datpiff, or you can get it here too. Minutes before the tape dropped, Datpiff actually crashed because of all the traffic. You know you're movin' up when you break the internet.
