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!
Mixtape: Priest Andretti
I must admit I am not one of those big Curren$y fans but I have to say Priest Andretti deserves some attention. Not because this mixtape is out of the ordinary with any other Curren$y mixtape. In my opinion (which I just realized) that’s the beauty of all his music. Curren$y is telling The #REALHIPHOP version of The NeverEnding Story!!! He just goes forever to the next chapter… Telling the story of his journey highlighting the women and heavy marijuana smoke that he encounters along the way. He is also as consistent with the phenomenal production through out this mixtape, as he does with almost every record. I’d say Priest Andretti is something you can look forward to listening to. Now go click on the picture below & download the mixtape!!! You’re welcome.
Underground Hip Hop Mixtape Review
This is a compilation of REAL HIP HOP artist from this blog and some who are not… But all of it is HOT SHIT!!! (that means, it sounds good). From where I’m from being a DJ (which I am a real DJ) means that you master the art of mixing. Others may call it blending but whatever you call it you can’t deny it’s DOPE. If you check the artist we feature you can see we know what we talkin bout… If you can APPRECIATE the art of mixing and understand this is a skill, then you’ll love this. Listen to it! Download it! Love it!!! Check the Track, Post Back.
What motivates you… What keeps you going even when no one cares about the cause but you? I sometimes wonder how the artist we write about keep the hunger for so long. And how the talented few can keep their quality at such a high level. I guess that would be a million dollar question, because when you figure out the answer you make millions of dollars. As some artist do…This next artist, who I believe has the answer to this million dollar question is Phil the Thrill. A very crafty rapper out of the VA, who I believe in the near future will capture hearts and dollas!
After coming across Phil the Thrill and listening to his track, (Exhale) I’m convinced he’s got what it takes to do this for a long time. Proven through the obvious talent displayed on every track. His latest mixtape sAMPLE Time II, and every mixtape before, he shows his word-smith and storytelling ability. Even at his young age his metaphors make him sound like a vet in this game, and it’s not those corny and predictable metaphors that most rappers are doing now a days… When Phil the Thrill raps it’s so easy to listen to him, plus he is so relatable and clever you can’t help but be a fan. But don’t mistake his style as being “simple” because it’s not, but there is a calmness to him that you can hear in his lyrics. His flow and voice makes him sound as if he does this effortlessly. With this style Phil the Thrill won’t have any trouble growing his fan base.
So could it be that it’s so easy for those who are talented that they just keep going because it’s so easy, HELL NAW!!! (I don’t think…) Or maybe its just the ability of truly knowing yourself. In other words, this is who they are and maybe they are not motivated at all but they’re just being themselves, an artist, and the result of them being themselves is great music??? Idk, you be the judge. Check the track & holla back…
Sample Monae II
Tattoo Girl Interlude
His name is Terrace Martin and he is about to re-introduce you to some real music. Now this is an experience of chilled vibes, the sound is very “r&b’ish”. If you’re looking for something different that’s not so hard and tough, then this is perfect! Terrace Martin has a very grown and sexy sound. Now don’t get it twisted he is hip hop and you can hear the gangster roots in some of his music. With that said I would describe him as a cocktail of Wale and Raheem DeVaughn mixed into one artist. So if you’re ready to hear some adult music and do what adults do… (if you know what I mean) then you need to load that iPod with some Terrace Martin.
Like I said Terrace Martin is adult music which has adult subject matter and sound to it. His lyrical style is smooth and so west coast. Yes he’s from the West! Terreac’s lyrics are heavily based around relationships, life, and lust… along with a little reefer smoking and alcoholic beverage drinking. (Hahaha that was funny) This may be why his sound has such a chilled vibe to it. The beats he delivers on have a lot of horns, piano, and just an all around jazz feel to them. It’s something my parents may enjoy but at the same time it’s a sound that attacks the younger crowd also. Just to prove this, I was put on game about Terrace Martin by my 16 year old cousin Mark. (not that his name is important to know but…. whatever) His sound attracts all ages is what I am trying to get across, dang…
So fill up the iPod with some real music… Thought From Detention, Here, My Dear, and Locke High I am positive you won’t be disappointed with any of it. No matter what, let me know what you think (you know what that means) check the track n’ post back. Holla back next week!
