Waka Flocka ft. Wale – No Hands (CRNKN Remix) : Must Hear Trap Remix [Free Download]

Posted in Bangin by nick | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

The massive hip-hop track “No hands” by Waka Flocka just got a proper fresh trap treatment, compliments of trap monster CRNKN. He touched up the insanely catchy track in all the right places. Most trap songs have one good section and aren’t much of a song, this is the complete opposite. The song packs a ton of variety and never lets you get bored. Free download always making our days shine. Enjoy this trap bomb to help bring in 2013!

Skrillex – Trung (Instrumental) : BANGER Instrumental + Hip-Hop Original Featuring Wale

Posted in Bangin by nick | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Time for a completely different overall sound from Skrillex with his one of his latest tracks “Trung”. This is the instrumental version to his collaboration with rapper Wale. It’s got such a funky fresh bass heavy beat that shows Skrillex in a different light. It’s hard deciding if the instrumental or version with Wale rapping is better. Which do you like more?  Turn up the bass, enjoy!

Wale Freestyles : Rap Freestyles over Purple Swag + Cashin Out + Rack City

Posted in Chill by nick | Tags: , , , , ,

Wale has dropped tons of freestyles over popular tracks that have turned out as good as the original like one of my favorite’s, an older post Hold Yuh (Major Lazer Remix) (Wale Freestyle). Today I’ve got two more freestyles from him. The first he goes in over ‘Cashin’ Out’ which is a new hip hop track from Cash Out that’s been stirring up some motion in Atlanta. Next up is a freestyle over the incredibly mellow “Purple Swag” by A$AP Rocky. Then last up we’ve got a freestyle over the radio hit  ’Rack City’ by Tyga. He pumps all these track full of his DC hip hop flow. Enjoy!

Wale – Slight Work (Ft. Big Sean) (Produced by Diplo) : Sick New Hip Hop Collaboration

Posted in Bangin, Chill by nick | Tags: , , , , , ,

Wale teamed with Big Sean and Diplo to bring you a sick new track. Diplo always produces fire, and this song is no different. Both Wale and Big Sean throw down some sick verses, and then with Diplo’s edgy unique feel the song is complete. It’s a track that after the first time through I was little unsure, and then the second time through I loved it. This is off of Wale’s upcoming Ambition. Turn it up, enjoy!

Wale – Focused (Ft. Kid Cudi) : New Sick Hip Hop Collaboration

Posted in Chill by nick | Tags: , , , , ,

It’s always sick seeing two rappers you like on the same track, especially ones who have had an open beef earlier this year. Glad to see they’ve teamed up and put everything aside. I was little thrown off hearing some of the rock Cudi stuff, so hearing him spit like this again is real sick. The track’s got a more radio friendly feel to it, with both killing it. These two should defintely do more tracks togeher. Enjoy!

Mac Miller ft. Wale – So What: Sick New Chill Hip-Hop Collaboration

Posted in Chill by nick | Tags: , , , , , , ,

So here’s a very suprising collaboration between this years rising star Mac Miller and a more established east coast rapper Wale. When I saw both of their names on the same track I was definitely surprised, but it works very well. I can’t wait to hear more from this great sounding duo. This track is very chill, with some light piano and synths going throughout and Mac Miller actually singing. Check it out, and let me know what you think of this collab? Enjoy!

Top 15 Mixtapes/ Free Albums of 2010

Posted in Bangin, Chill, Mixtapes / Albums by nick | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Mixtapes and freely distributed albums are one of the best way an artist can get their music out to a mass amount of people. Some mixtapes are  so-so, and others just blow you away. Some are so good it’s hard to believe they are free. and that’s why every single one of these artists are blowing up so fast. 2010 had a huge amount of quality mixtapes/ free albums, and it was hard, but I’ve picked the 15 best, and a few honorable mentions because it was too hard to pick just 15. Now all of these albums are amazing, and if you haven’t heard them definetely download it and check it out. I’ve also picked one of my favorite tracks off each one  to give you a sampling. Check out some mixtapes you may have forgot about, or some new ones you haven’t heard yet.

Potomac Boys Club – Lights! (Ft. Ellie Goulding, Waka Flaka, Wale): MUST HEAR SICK ELECTRONIC/INDIE from Brenton Duvall

Posted in Bangin, Chill by nick | Tags: , , , , , ,

Today I am very pleased to give you the latest and greatest from Brenton Duvall, who brought the most liked song on the site Mean Planes and Taylor Gangs. And as some of you know he is my neighbor, and the other night I brought him to the action packed bass filled Robotic Pirate Monkey at The Fox and several days later we get his most high energy song yet, Brenton let me know I had “brought him to a new level of rage”. This time teaming up with a Patrick McKelvy for the collaboration entitled Potomac Boys Club. This even more energy song, is packed witth alot more bass then his past songs. It features the vocals from Ellie Goulding, Waka Flaka, and Wale for an amazing combination. This song is so good you would think Brenton recruited all three of the aritsts himself. Turn up the bass and enjoy a fresh new BANGER!

Aston Martin Music (Freestyle) – Wale Ft. Drake: Sick Chill New Freestyle

Posted in Chill by nick | Tags: , , , , ,

So Drake dropped the chilled out song Aston Martin Music, which was pretty good, I didn’t love it. Wale drops the sickest freestyles like the Major Lazer – ‘Hold On’ one, and now he brings us his latest freestyle, going in over Drake’s track. The result is a  great combination with some sick signature flow from Wale. He even left some of Drake’s vocals for a nice little mix. At firs I was a little hesitant, but after hearing it iTunes a few time I knew it deserved a post. Enjoy!

Sick New Freestyle: Wale – Hold You

Posted in Chill by nick | Tags: , , , ,

You guys loved Wale’s latest mixtape More About Nothing, and the track ‘The Eyes of A Tiger’. Wale continues to drop sick freestyles via Twitter. And his freestyles tend to be over popular track, and are ussualy quality songs compared to most other freestyles online. So for this track ‘HoldYou’ Wale goes in over Gyptian’s ‘Hold Yuh’, which you guys went crazy over Major Lazer’s remix. This song is real sick, and sounds more like an album track rather then a freestyle given out for free, but that’s how Wale does it. Enjoy another sick Wale track!

Sick New Hip-Hop: Wale – The Black & The Gold (Sam Sparrow Sample)

Posted in Bangin by nick | Tags: , , ,

So it’s no suprise that I am a big fan of Wale, his style is just so fresh and sick. Haha, but really there’s no other way to put it, Wale has a unique style that the only word other then sick I can think of would be fresh. Here’s a leak he dropped off his new mixtape expected to drop tomorrow. It samples Sam Sparrow’s song ‘Black & Gold’ which a friend showed me last year and I think is pretty sick. The original is more of chilled out electronic song, and DJ Omega takes the song, and makes it into a sick hip-hop hit. Turn up this track and enjoy!
