I’ve’ been hearing a lot of rap songs lately that either sample or actually feature someone who you wouldn’t expect fro a rap song. TodayÂ I’veÂ got a sick track from the rapper Jaguar, which features some added vocals from Capital Lights. Jaguar reps Denver, CO and Florida, couldn’t find too much information on the guy. Props to whoeverÂ anonymouslyÂ submitted this track. It’s a chilled out song, but had got some depth to it. Shane Robbins produced the track, and did a great job. Enjoy this sick track!

A good number of you have probably heard about Nas and Damian Marley teaming up for a collaboration album, Distant Relatives which dropped May 18th. And I realized, that while caught up in how good it was, I never once posted anything from it. Well I’m here to change that, with 2 sick songs from the album. This first track is the intro track to the cd, and it has everything you could want from a Nas / Damian collaboration. It’s filled with energy, the beat is sick, and the lyrics are great. This first track starts off the album right, enjoy!

Next is a lot different, and starts with a very chill intro, then drops to a sick hip-hop/reggae fused beat. Joss Stone has some vocals in the song which give it a nice touch, and Lil Wayne drops a verse which sounds a little off at first, but works suprisingly well. The song has a definite serious tone to it, but nonetheless incredibly sick. If only all songs could have as sick of lyrics as this song…

Rusko continues to make his name as one of the bigger names in dubstep in the US. His album O.M.G!, which I featured a couple songs from here, that dropped a couple weeks ago is soooo sick. Now some sick remixes have surfaced, and one of my favorite is by Sub Focus. He’s an amazing DJ/Producer from the UK. He takes the already sick ‘Hold On’ and makes it even more intense. Be prepared as the song BANGS HARD! Turn up the bass and make sure you’ve got a good system for this one. Enjoy this banger!

Hoodie Allen is a pretty unique combo that reminds me a little of the other popular duo who is starting to blowup, Chiddy Bang. Well Hoodie Allen was a duo, but since a couple of days ago Hoodie Allen is now the solo act who works with different producers. Well this latest single from Hoodie is siiiick and very catchy. Featuring Marina & The Diamonds and the beat having mild dubstep vibe to it suprisngly all comes together great for this sick track. Enjoy this sick track and watch for Hoodie Allen!

Travis McCoy, originally from Gym Class Heroes is really starting to stand out as a solo artist. I got some great feedback on ‘We’ll Be Alright’ posted earlier here, so I know you guys are going to love this one. It features Cee-Lo Green, and the two make a real chill sick song. It’s got a great vibe to it, and it makes me more excited to hear the whole album Lazarus dropping June 8th. Enjoy this track and be sure to buy the album when it drops!

So a lot of you are now becoming familiar with dubstep, and falling in love with it. And for those dubstep fans, you just continue to love it more. Well my friend Geoff pointed out that I hadn’t thrown up the Starry Eyed remix, and this song is so sick I almost didn’t believe it haha. Well this has been out since last year, but it’s one of the bets dubstep remixes I’ve heard to date. It’s a remix of Â up and coming singer Ellie Goulding’s song ‘Starry Eyed’, and remixed by Jakwob. Jakwob is from the UK just like Ellie, and he is certainly making quite the name for himself, be sure to check out him on Myspace here. Turn up the bass for this outstanding remix, enjoy!

Soo, this song is incredibly poppy, happy, features Katy Perry and….. Snoop Dogg?? Well I thought I was seeing things when I read it, but it’s true and I think the song is actually kind of catchy. I most likely am going to regret saying I like this song, but I think a lot of you are going to enjoy it. Just listen to it, at least to the Snoop Dogg part before giving your opinion because the begining might be a little too poppy for some of you to handle. Enjoy this song that’s sure to be a summer hit!

The Roots have always been a chill favorite of mine, and they never seem toÂ disappoint. Their newest album due out June 22nd, is sure to be live up to The Roots title. This song off the album featuring John Legend has an incredibly chill vibe to it, but at the same time captures a lot of energy from the rapping. Give this song a full listen through before judging and enjoy!

There are some songs that you start listening to and you’re confused by the foreign voices, then when the beat drops you can’t help but dance… Or maybe it’s just this one haha. Well props to my friend Anthony for showing me this sick house track. Get passed the intro, and when it drops i’m sure you’ll fall in love. It’s very different, especially from a lot of the stuff I post on the site, but incredibly upbeat at happy. Yolanda Be Cool is repping Yemen, who know they had some sick house Dj’s? Make sure you’ve got a good speaker system, and enjoy this sick happy track!
