Kendrick Lamar has no undoubtedly risen to one of the most buzzed about rappers in the game, and decided to shit on just about every other buzzing rapper in the form of throwing down an insane verse on the new Big Sean single “Control” feat. Jay Electronica off Seans’ new album Hall of Fame.
Around 5 minutes into the song, Kendrick manages to call out Jermaine Cole (J. Cole), Big Krit, Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electronicaa, Tyler the Creator, and Mac Miller and going as far as saying he is going to murder them. While this is not your blatant hip-hop diss track, K Dot defintely just called out near everyone on the come up, including the two people on the track. He manages to specifically call out every rising rapper who has each of their own influential growing core fanbases, which he hopes to steal. Regardless, he has centralized the hip-hop world with all ears on Kendrick, leaving him the true winner. Listen below and what do you think?
Big Sean – Control Ft. Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica
Here is the verse that caused a scene (Around 5:00 In):
J. Cole is right on the tip of releasing his sophomore record Born Sinner set to drop next week on June 18th. On the release is “Forbidden Fruit” Cole’s highly anticipated collaboration with Kendrick Lamar. The result lives up to the buzz with some amazing production providing just the right soundtrack for Cole and Kendrick lay down their signature styles. Having these two forces on one track is deadly. I can only hope we see more from this unstoppable collaboration. Pre-Order J. Cole’s Born Sinner Album. Enjoy!

Kendrick Lamar jumps on Rocko’s controversial single “U.O.E.N.O.” track that ended in Rick Ross loosing his Rebook deal. Well Kendrick and the rest of the Black Hippy crew featuring Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock all do work on this remix. They all deliver some solid verses with Kendrick and Jay’s standing out. Do you think it’s better then the original?

Kendrick Lamar is truly establishing himself as one of the most original powerful forces in the hip-hop game, and just got a fitting official remix featuring none other then Jay-Z to one of his biggest tracks “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”. Kendrick adds some extra lines bouncing off his Jay-Z’s lines seamlesslly. I really hope to see an entire project from these two. How can you beat this combination? Enjoy.

Now I know you are thinking, didn’g TSIS just post a trap remix to Kendrick Lamar‘s “Swimming Pools (Drank)”, like 2 weeks ago? Yes we did, from At Dawn We Rage. Now typically one remix of a song will tie us over, but then I heard this massive bomb of a remix from a relatively unknown Flaxo, I couldn’t help but throw it up. The previous version was very simliar to the original, this one has a more bass heavy electronic kick feeling more like a full on remix. It packs some incredible sampling and nice drops. Flaxo really killed it on this one. After this, everyone can stop trying to make this song any better. Enjoy!

It already been announced that the massive 3 day long Colorado snow music festival SnowBall had relocated from the Vail area to Winter Park for 2013. The festival has always had one of the freshest most diverse lineups not just in Colorado but on the West coast. They have consistently had a great blend of the hottest new electronic, live band, and hip-hop acts all at the same festival to enjoy while freezing your ass off. Well now for the big switch of locations, this lineup completely makes up for the move. The headliners include past attendee Colorado electronic icon Pretty Lights who knows how to shut a festival down. STS9 makes their highly anticipated debut Snow festival appearance which is sure to be one to remember. Rowdytown headliner, fellow Colorado Native Big Gigantic are set to unleash their new stage setup. The man bringing real hip-hop back to American mainstream… Kendrick Lamar. One of our favorite rising Electro stars Porter Robinson is set to have a epic headlining performance. Datsik will probably drop bass louder then you have ever heard.. literally. Flying Lotus is one of the most intelligent producers and will take you too another world with his future sounding productions. The collaboration project between GRiZ and Gramatik aka Grizmatik will be performing their first official festival performance with live production. And those are only the headliners playing the festival, look above / below at the rest of the jaw dropping lineup. These are more then enough reason to rage in the freezing snow for 3 days for an unforgettable weekend filled with snow and music. Hope to see everyone out in the snow this year!

“Swimming Pools (Drank)” by Kendrick Lamar was one of the freshest hip-hop tracks to come out of 2012, and At Dawn We Rage have made a new edit to take it right into 2013. They made a festival trap edit of the track adding just the right amount to have it blast over some massive speakers. They don’t change it up an excessive amount, leaving the vibe of the original fully intact. A very fresh take on such a massive track. Turn this up, enjoy!

A$AP Rocky – 1Train (ft. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson & Big K.R.I.T.) : Huge Hip-Hop Song from Long Live A$APPosted in Chill by nick | Tags: A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, ASAP Rocky, Big K.R.I.T., Danny Brown, Joey Bada$$, Kendrick Lamar, Yelawolf
I can’t even remember the last time I saw a track with this many amazing artists all packed on one track. A$AP Rocky recruited an all star cast for the next single “1Train” off his upcoming highly anticipated debut album, Long. Live. A$AP which is set to release on January 15th. Following up F*ckin Problems (Ft. 2 Chainz, Drake, Kendrick Lamar) and Goldie. This track features Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson, & Big K.R.I.T.. Every single guest rapper destroys their verse, all adding up to make one of the dopest hip-hops to come out in awhile. My only complaint is not hearing enough of A$AP on the track. Turn this up, enjoy!

Kendrick Lamar featuring Lady Gaga – B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe (Music Video) : Suprising, Dope, Chilled Out Hip-HopPosted in Chill, Video by nick | Tags: B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe, Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe, Kendrick Lamar, lady gaga, Music Video
Wow, I really did not see this one coming. Possibly one of the biggest hip-hop names emerging out of 2012, Kendrick Lamar teams up with pop queen Lady Gaga for an unexpected chilled out new version of the ballad, “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe”. I had some mixed feelings when debating whether or not to post this; now I really love Kendrick Lamar, buy Lady Gaga is straight mainstream pop music, despite her electronic edge. After listening a more then a few times to really analyze it, despite the unmastered sound quality, I think it cuts away her superficial pop star image away. This raw voice contrasts perfectly with Kendrick’s raspy voice.
Kendrick Lamar featuring Lady Gaga – B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe
The video has a retro low grade vibe that highlights Gaga’s stardom in South America, showing in the director’s words Lady Gaga “chillun in Rio, and backstage in Colombia”. The collection of shots acts in the vintage wash acts as the perfect imagery for the mellow epic collaboration. Lady Gaga has worked with Zedd, Madeon, and now Kendrick Lamar. And for this, just tossed it up online in a tweet. What’s next for her? What do yout think of this collab? What artists do you want to see work together? Do you think Gaga killed the vibe? Enjoy!
We get a brand new track from Kendrick Lamar, right after releasing one of the best hip-hop albums of the year Good Kid M.A.A.D City which sold 240k+ copies in it’s first week by the way. The song is “The Jig Is Up”, and is produced by J. Cole & Canei Finch. Kendrick talks about about real recognizing real, and the jig being up. For some reason I never realized it, but Kendrick reminds me of a youthful Kanye a little. The more I hear from him, the more I grow to love his style. Enjoy!

Throughout the last few years Kendrick Lamar has become one of the biggest names in hip-hop and finally delivers his debut album Good Kid M.A.A.D City. It has big name features, insane production, and solid verse throughout. Kendrick deliver more passion and heartfelt emotion then most hip-hop artists you will ever hear. After a few listens, I think this is defintely up there with one of the best albums of 2012. Some of my favorite tracks including the “Backstreet Freestyle” and “M.A.A.D City (Feat. MC Eiht)” and the previously posted “Compton” and “The Recipe” which featured Dr. Dre., as well “The Art of Peer Pressure” and the new Extended Version his current hit “Swimming Pools” . Highly recomend grabbing the whole album through iTunes, you won’t be dissapointed. Cheers to easily one of the best hip-hop albums of 2012, making it an incredible year of music already. Enjoy!
