"Sumethin' Ta Creez To"


"The El Co"

I am back to posting after a long break from the blog.  BUT it is summer time and I figured what better time to get back to sharing the music that I love.  So, first off this track slapps and only reaffirms the movement that is growing out of the west coast.  With up and coming artists such as Dom Kennedy, Casey Veggies, Overdoz., Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and many more California is back on top (at least in my opinion).  Polyester is a dope producer who's style and flow remind me of the late great K-Dee.  "The El Co" is a great summer time track to just chill and do what you do to, whatever that is.  This track is available on Sumthin Ta Creez To, Polyester's new Mixtape available for download here

Until Next Time,

'Throwback Joint' : People Under the Stairs

"San Francisco Knights"

This one of my favorite cuts of all time! This beat is straight crazy.  If you don't know about these guys by now...


"Drift Away"

"Turn Me Up" featuring Kendrick Lamar

Ab-Soul- "Turn Me Up" ft. Kendrick Lamar from CALMATIC on Vimeo.

Ab-Soul's real creative with his flow and has collabed with a few up and coming artists out of Los Angeles including Dom Kennedy and Kendrick Lamar (plus more).  Down to earth and honesty is what you get out of this guy and I can really respect that.  Ab-Soul recently dropped Long Term Vol. 2: Lifestyles of the Broke and Almost Famous which is available for download here  

Kendrick Lamar

"She Needs Me"

"P&P 1.5" featuring Ab-Soul

Kendrick Lamar from on Vimeo.

I've been meaning to post about this guy for a minute.  Kendrick is hot and you might have heard rumors of a feature on Detox.  In my opinion this guy is blowing up period, no if ands or buts about it.  He dropped a free EP in late 2009 which you can download that along with the rest of his mixtapes here at Real talk give it a listen.  Also Kendrick Lamar will be releasing a mixtape with J. Cole soon so look out for that too.

Casey Veggies

"Sleeping In Class"

"Ridin' Roun Town"

Casey Veggies from on Vimeo.

CV is a Cali, more specifically Inglewood, native and he dropped a free LP in January called "Sleeping In Class" which is available for free download here  If you want to call this release a mixtape you can but to me it sounds like a full LP.  Solid production and dope content...what more can you ask for?  To me the stand out track is "Ridin Round Town" The track is hot! High energy and a catchy hook on top of an illl beat.  Trust me and pick this one up okaaaye!

Actual Proof

"The Talented Tenth"

"Skate Kids"

ACTUAL PROOF - SKATE KIDS from Pricefilms on Vimeo.

Conscious lyrics paired with 9th Wonder's (Also Khrysis and Amp) beats is a breath of fresh air.  Actual Proof hails from 9th's hometown of North Carolina and are somewhat reminiscent of an early Little Brother.  Their first release dropped in the summer of 2010 and was title "The Free EP" and is available for download here  Recently they dropped a free LP titled "The Talented Tenth" which I strongly advise everybody download (

Exile & J. Mitchell

"Your Summer Song"

Exile from on Vimeo.

Exile is always killer on the production and J. Mitchell is new to me but this track is hot.  If anybody knows what album this is off of or any of her other work please enlighten me.
