I don’t know what’s going on anymore in hip hop it left the streets and became the new hipster movement. You frown upon it like those skater kids back in the days with them super oversized Jnco Jeans when you hear some of this music. The most ignorant artists that have absolutely nothing realistic to say are successful such as Gucci, Waka, Lil B, Gunplay who just got a major record deal need I continue?? It was hard accepting the fact that gone are the days of songs with lyrics, but they made it easier for us to listen too because most of these terrible songs have great production smh. Waka is an artist that says absolutely nothing an he will admit it but he gets some of the best beats in the game now which makes him a star even though his lyrical flow is poop. The new thing now is everybody is making these simple ass choruses saying the same exact thing over and over like there 2Chainz & Mike Jones example That MMG song actin up. Just because one rapper pulls it off doesn’t mean everyone else need 2 ride that 🏄 (wave) but PLEASE stop this non sense already like this guy below smh
This is a new section were I will be highlighting a rapper who’s career was tragically cut short to keep there memories alive. The first rapper is thizz nation and bay area artist Johnny Cash he was a member of the group Money Gang and big on the underground scene at that time. He was Gunned down in 3/07 Rip gone 2 soon.
Most people who do music do it for the fame there is only a selected few who do it for the art an you can tell when you listen to the music. Regardless of your reason to do music everyone wants to be successful. As an artist you get what you put into yourself. You can’t be cheap with your music you must invest in promo to get your name out and studio time for starters. You must develop a brand that separates you from other artists & make good songs. These days you have many options to get your music out mainly the Internet, there is many blogs & sites that will post your music you can also pass your CDs out. In the past music videos were a luxury but now it’s something available for many artists because so many people are filming videos. So if your gonna do it right & “Go Hard Or Go Home”
This is a new joint from the A town youngn known as Swagg. If you been following his music you know this song is just light work for him as he continues to deliver music that you can feel. His music gives you that old school feel but he is a youngn. Check his music out on youtube & Datpiff & right here of coarse Follow him on twitter @infamousswagg Click The picture 2 D/L or Bottom link.
Earlier this week I woke up very disappointed when I seen the XXL 2012 Freshman cover. This is a disappointment to all the hard-working new artists out. I am confused as to how they choose people for this cover it’s obvious it doesn’t go by how relevant you are because I have no idea who some of these people are and I’m a big hip hop fan. I thought a freshman was a new artist if that was the case French Montana & Roscoe Dash should not be on the cover. The idea of French being a Freshman is ridiculous the guy been in the game almost 10 years. It’s a shame he is the only East Coast rapper on the cover & he isn’t very lyrical at all. If u look back at past Freshman covers there has been more missed than hit rappers. I am aware artists work hard to build up their buzz, but I can’t even take some of these artists seriously. This section should be called XXL’s Rappers we want you to like this year. If you really think about it Future is the best new artist on this cover he did Racks on Racks, Tony Montana and a few other songs that got him some big Features from artists such as Drake & Rick Ross. Machine Gun Kelly must have been handed this cover with his Bad Boy Record deal. I don’t know who Macklemore is and I don’t care because I searched Hopsin, Iggy Azalea & Danny Brown and I was disappointed. I have no issue with Kid Ink I feel he earned it. In the 5 years XXL has had Freshman Class this is by far the worst one. I guess they don’t notice up & coming artists like Los, Jon Connor, XV, Schoolboy Q , Push!, Stalley even Chevy Woods to name a few. I see why ASAP Rocky passed on being in this class its a joke like interscope magazine oops!! I mean XXL.
Video from the hit off the Dream Chasers mixtape
1) When did you produce your first beat that gave you some exposure?
J Cardim: My 1st placement was in 2004, On Jean Grae’s album titled “This week” I did “intro” and “P.S.”

the top producers in the game?
J.Cardim: Times change. It’s not a producers game as it was back in 02-03 even up to 06. I think now its coming back to the artist. They want artists that create their own lanes. Like “drake” or “Asap rocky”. If this was 03 then it would have been a different story. But I like where the game is headed. The artists teams up with a producer and create a sound. That’s what me and my artist Ariez Onasis is doing.
