We know you want some new music, so “Live in Concert w/ Wiz Khalifa & Curren$y is what you need to be listening to. But before you download this mixtape make sure you are prepared to vibe out… And when we say “be prepared” if you are a true Jet Life or Taylor Gang fan then you know what we mean. This mixtape is an ear full of jazz fusion beats with a 70’s back drop, the entire mixtape puts you in a time machine. Let us give you a small hit of what we talking about. Now track “For Her” gives you a perfect example of what this “Live in Concert” EP is all about. And with the lyrical genius from Wiz & Curren$y together they have brought us a whole new feel to this rap game.

If you slept on our post back in October then of course you don’t know about this #AcidRap. The mixtape from the one and only, Chance the Rapper, which dropped back in April has to be one of the most perfect body of work for the young rapper. Every track he owns, exhibiting his very distinct style of which has vastly improved. Chance the Rappers’ Acid Rap will be one of the top mixtapes of the year! With features from Twista, Childish Gambino, and Kids These Days and some of the most abstract production, makes Acid Rap a masterpiece. Chance the Rapper shows that his #10days from school turned out to be a blessing from the All Mighty. Floored in amazement with the progression of his ever improving style and flow, we see Chance riding the wave of Acid Rap straight to stardom.
Not to long ago this mixtape cover caught some eyes with its very unique and intriguing artwork, after listening to that mixtape The Underachievers were what we found. This name is the absolute opposite of what they have achieved with their debut mixtape Indigoism. Two MC’s are the members of this club called The Underachievers, AK (@iunderachieve) & Issa Dash (@issa_dash) both representing NY and this new Beast Cost movement. A movement loosely being pushed forward by the likes of Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era crew, also the Flatbush Zombies, and ASAP Mob… Now after reading those names know one thing, The Underachievers will give you a totally different trip with their sound because Indigoism is defiantly a trippy ride.
On Indigoism get ready for very laid back beats mixed with a lot of psychedelic properties. With The Underachievers sped up flows over these doped up beats makes for a very lethal combination. But the most trippy part of this ride is the lyrics… Are they conscious? We don’t know if The Underachievers are what most would call conscious rappers… But maybe they have created a new definition with two positive rappers with some darkness and a lot of hunger striving to achieve success and giving you the real along the way. Even with all these elements they are able to also include elements of jazz, blues, and reggae which fuse perfectly form one track to the next. This will no doubt be a sound for the #REALHIPHOP heads, a commercial ni33a won’t be able to feel this sh!t. But don’t feel bad if you don’t feel it, just listen to it again (and maybe open that 3rd eye).
Hope you all get as much out of Indigoism as much as we did. The track below are there for you to listen to, so check the tracks, post back, and let us know how you feel. Like or not we want to know yo thoughts!

Coming from who most believed would become (or already is…) hip hop’s savior, J.Cole blessed us with a small ray of sunshine this morning entitled “Truly Yours“. A collection of tracks that looks to be a prequel for a new album to come, of course. Our patients have paid off, on this one as Cole brings us the serious real talk that he is know for and seems to be looking to teacher while he spits this game. Maybe this is the new direction he’s headed in, don’t really know but whatever it might be this is definitely one worth listening to. No features, no extras, just cole bring the truth, something that most need to HEAR but just want to LISTEN to. (wonder how many will catch that last line?) Only the #REALHIPHOP fans will appreciate this one. So if you one, cop it below!
Spitta Andretti is his name and this Jet Life is his game or maybe the mixtapes are his game. Whatever it is Curren$y stayed true to his game and dropped his New Jet City mixtape on Superbowl Sunday. Like the football game this mixtape is BIG! He brought everything together perfectly on this one, not that his other mixtapes are garbage, but this one is turnt all the way up! With the normally expected quality you get from Curren$y plus his always great production, then multiply this with extraordinary features and it equals a top mixtape of the year!!! Hope the competition is paying attention, because the homie Spitta Andretti is taking boys to school. If the New Jet City is a preview of the year to come get excited!
This week in celebration of the 49’ers win to make it to the Superbowl we gone give y’all another one of the West’s best. If you haven’t heard of Dom Kennedy then we would suspect yo internet services aren’t working at yo residence… But for those of you who have heard we don’t need to tell y’all Dom is one of the slickest rappers in the game (meaning he’ll talk yo girl out her panties). In the middle of 2012 Dom dropped the Yellow Album which has had over 200,000 downloads, that’s like ghetto platinum or something!!! Listen will guaranteed Dom Kennedy will be your new favorite rapper, complements to his super smooth style and pimp-like flow the Yellow Album will have you wanting more. And with features from the like of Kendrick Lamar, Freddie Gibbs, and Rick Ross shows you why this was on of the best mixtapes of 2012!!! SHUT UP & LISTEN!

So take it from us if you been sleepin’ on Casey Veggies this is a great opportunity to get up on what you been missing. Especially since the Cali rapper has been one of the cold-est & dope-est young lyricist out for about the last 2 of years!

Now don’t be stupid you dummy and not listen to us. Download Life Changes with the link below and enjoy!!!
