Party Hip-Hop

Hoodie Allen

Been a while since I’ve thrown up some Hoodie, and this song just popped up in my iTunes so I figured I’d give it a shout. Traditional Hoodie Lyricism with a nice beat. (Holla if you hear the workaholics reference too.)

Logic

Logic’s been blowing up recently, and with good reason. His lyrics are fresh, his delivery is fantastic and his beats compliment them both. With that in mind, I’d like to introduce you to the mind of logic.

Some Classic Rap

Here are some songs I’m digging right now from some big names in the rap game. Some are old, some are newer, but all should be heard.

Mouthful of Phantogram

I don’t know what it is about Phantogram that makes their songs perfect for mixing with hip-hop verses, but thankfully several artists have noticed and taken advantage of their beautiful indietronica (is that a real word yet?) in these mash-ups.

 

This first one is from The Hood Internet, long-known as mash-up masters. They add Wiz Khalifa’s “Roll Up” to “Don’t Move”, and it comes out with a super-mellow happy vibe.

Next up, this one’s exactly what it sounds like – “Mouthful of Diamonds” vs “Diamonds from Sierra Leone”. Brought to you by wait what, the same mash-up genius behind The Notorious xx album.

Now this one isn’t strictly speaking a mash-up. Azad Right, who is my favorite rapper of the moment (if you want to know why, listen to this, and this), released this track about two weeks ago. He uses “When I’m Small” by Phantogram as the backing track.

Sexy, energetic and very danceable – this remix by The Jackals is freaking perfect.

Yelawolf

I’d classify Yelawolf in the same vein as MGK. He’s a choppy rapper, who’s known for his quick yet calculated flow. Check these out:

Also, “Box Chevy” is one of the best atmosphere generating songs around, if it’s loud enough – people will shut up.
