Bambu - The Lean Sessions EP [MUSIC DOWNLOAD]


What you need to know about the homie's project: Track number 15 on rifle per family. was produced by Karman, a high school youth who honed his skills as a student of Sessions LA - a youth and student workshop series that DJ Phatrick helped develop in the Historic Filipinotown district of Los Angeles. Karman has since found his own voice as an experimental Hip Hop producer with a very unique sound. After hearing what Karman had done with an old Tommy Wright III record on his Soundcloud, Bambu asked Karman to replicate such for his latest Beatrock release. After the release of the music video for Lean, Bambu once again sought out Karman to put together this 5-song Free(EP), The Lean Sessions. Something to play to help get you through your work day... Lean.

Snow Tha Product - "Hola" Live At SXSW 2013 [VIDEO]


I was made aware of this artist back when she did a remix of Schoolboy Q's "Hands On the Wheel" track. Apparently Snow tha Product is from Cali but living in Texas. We've seen a rise in female emcees lately which is really cool, it's also good to see a female emcee that's reprensenting for the ladies. This SXSW performance clip made it to my inbox c/o Fly Times Daily. Hit the jump to see what they had to say.

When it comes to music from Rochelle Jordan, it is ALWAYS welcome here. I've missed some free music she gave out to fans but in case you missed it let's recap shall we? Rappers rap over R&B all the damn time, so ROJO flips it and does some R&B over rap beats. But when you think of Drake beats sometimes you never know if they're really rap beats [I'm kidding, kinda, but u get it]. Anyways hit the jump to listen.

Trey Songz – Fumble


I bump a number of Trey Songz' projects but that's not why I'm posting this video. The reason is that with this song in particular a number of good folks from the city contributed to the creation of it. Lady G, Buddah & Phonix had hands on it, and I was fucking with it before I knew that. So here, watch share and make sure all your friends are watching it too.

TiRon & Ayomari - NO FILTER


Not too long ago, the dynamic duo of TiRon and Ayomari released a new song NO FILTER. I'm sure I didn't get around to posting it but they also sent me an advance of the song that hasn't really left rotation since. And then BOOM, just like that they release the video, directed by the homie Jason Madison. Take a look then share it with your friends.

Now sometime before Fab and Pusha T started requesting him for features, I had been posting a few things from Troy Ave out of New York. Then Eazee Street had a bit of a layoff...we'll now that I'm getting back into game form I figured I'd post something that had been chillin' in my inbox. This is him with his crew BSB and production from Pete Rock. If Pete Rock is reaching out because he fucks with your gotta lace his production. "POWDER to the People".

Noa James - The Adventures Of Young Orca [MUSIC DOWNLOAD]


I can honestly say that when it comes to L.A. music, I'm THE most versed in it. But that doesn't mean that I don't get some help and guidance along the way. As far as the I.E., if it weren't for Noa James and BlackCloud Music...I would have been ignorant to the vast amount of talent out that way. And with Noa James as an artist it's been great to see his growth [along with Curtiss King] and where it's gotten them now. Now on the Road to Paid Dues with MURS, Noa is getting to take the I.E. and Southern California to places all over the country. But that doesn't mean he's too busy to give us new music. He has a new EP called "The Adventures of Young Orca". Check it out

Speaking of Kobe Bryant a tightly contested and intense game yesterday evening, the Lakers managed to walk away with the W. But what is probably the most notable play of the night, Kobe in vintage form drove by Josh Smith, elevated and threw down a vicious dunk to give the Lakers some energy and momentum. In a similar fashion, Kobe drove by Horford then elevated over Smith again for what was the go ahead layup to win the game.
