More submissions to the site. This is a dude from Southern Cali but actually stayed in Miami for school for quite some time...you know what? eff it. Allow Sketch to introduce himself.
"Born Cameron Dante Dixon on august 14th 1985, Sketchthekid is an aspiring Chef and Hip Hop artist. The west coast native was born and raised in soutern California, residing mostly in the city of Escondido. Post high school Sketch studied Culinary arts at Johnson and wales University in Miami, Fl, graduating with a bachelors degree. While growing up Sketch was exposed to many styles of music from smooth jazz and oldies to the everchaging rock and hip hop genres. Taking up poetry as a personal hobby Sketch began to play with words his sophmore year in high school along with his steadily increasing love for drawing and other art, thus coining his nickname early freshman year in college. After graduating college and spending some time in Alaska, Sketch returned to Miami to work at Gotham Steak in the illustrious Fontainebleau Resort. It was at this time he also combined his hobby of poetry with music and imagination, self-releasing a string of mixtapes entitled “Blank Canvas”."
Unfortunately, I don't have a song to give out to you. But if you're interested, and i'm sure you will be, here's the download link for his mixtape Music N' Mischief. And can also check out his Reverbnation profile by clicking here.
This was actually released a couple of weeks ago. It's a pretty dope tape. I was impressed with his music video to "Just Another Day" so maybe you guys will enjoy the mixtape as well. Click here to download.
I like G-Eazy's music and the way he uses samples to make unique tracks. I'm gonna put it this way. Any one can grab a sample, put a different drum pattern to it, and boom! call it a day. But to get your point across and tell a story on track with a sample, that's where G-Eazy excels and he definitely showcases that in this cut. With this song, he grabs Mary Poppins "Chim Chim Cheree". Enjoy.

So I decided that the submissions I get in my email, firstname.lastname@example.org, are going to be called "Brand (K)new Submissions". I'll probably switch up the title or something. Anyways, I have one more to give you guys tonight, but first we're going to start off with this guy here BG The Iceberg.
"BG The Iceberg is a 21 year old rapper & producer hailing from Louisiana. He began rapping at age 13 & started producing a little over a year ago. His lyrical content and originality has helped him build a buzz locally. Set out to prove that the hip-hop scene in Louisiana is more than meets the eye, he is currently working on a new mixtape called Full Focus 2, that is slated to drop soon."
You can view his Reverbnation profile by clicking here and also follow him on Twitter @BGTheIceberg.
Would you look at that, it's not a Hip Hop post. I'm also a day late on this, but you know I can't keep up with EVERYTHING. Anyways, I love The Black Keys so I cannot wait until El Camino comes out in December.

I've been seeing this dude's name on Twitter a lot lately, but I never actually heard a track from him. Well the Harlem emcee Ro Ransom impressed me with this one and I'm definitely gonna keep checking for his music.

It seems like forever since we have heard some new Tech music. Here is a brand (k)new project that features the likes of; Cornel West, Chuck D, Styles P, Dead Prez, Joell Ortiz, Brother Ali, Killer Mike, Vinnie Paz, Poison Pen J. Dilla, DJ Green Lantern, Southpaw, Shuko, Slim Fass. Dope? I would agree as well. TOUR INFO and link after you click "read more"
Mac Miller just represents a fun, postive kind of guy. Can't hate on that. At least he stays true to himself. He's not going around throwing up B's, talking like he's a boss lord, saying he's catching bodies while crooning on a track. No shots, no shots, no shots.

S/O to 2dopeboyz for this one. The Martyr is out tomorrow (for free). And I hope everyone in El Paso goes out to the show he's gonna have on November 16th.

Any new music from Mr. Wright is dope to me.
"My bad I left some swag at home when I did this. My bad I didn’t name drop nor did I brand drop on this. I apologize for not lying, and for not embellishing and fluffing my verses on this joint. I’m sorry. Forgive me for being completely open and honest on topics I hold very close to me and for taking off my day-to-day filter. I’ll do all those things on my next song". – Hope Wright

I'm really excited for Bobby Ray's second album. I'm excited to see how he will succeed and how the album will sound. So far, it seems like its gonna be pretty dope.
"On Monday, Bobby Ray held his first listening session for his upcoming sophomore album Strange Clouds. We were treated to 7 new songs, including his next single “Play The Guitar” which features Andre 3000. There are a few other big guest appearances so far, as the album is not fully complete, in Lil’ Wayne, Big K.R.I.T., Nelly and T.I.. Tip appears on a song entitled Arena. He also worked with One Republic for an amazing track and is said to have quote “the song of 2012 with a mega feature from somebody who never does features with anyone!” That one had my brain going. I’ve been told, even if I guess who it is, I will still doubt myself because it’s just that big! What he has so far for the album is extremely on point. His growth shows, and the energy and passion is at max level. We caught up with him and spoke to him about his creative process on this project as opposed to his first, where he wants to take his music, what his fans can take away from the new album, how the lead single “Strange Clouds” came together with a Dubstep feel, and more. Look for the album March, 2012. Trust me, it’s worth the wait." – Obese

So I guess this is a track that's supposed to be off the "classic" album Ambition. So far, not fitting the bill yo. *Shrugs*. Oh and by the way, Bait > This track.

The reason why I started this blog was not to share "popular" music across the social networks. Okay, maybe its fun to keep everyone updated, start discussions and what not, but I got into this for the sole reason of supporting relatively unknown artists. I just want to be another "home" for rappers to achieve their dream. So, if you're an artist, and you're looking to get on the blogs and looking for more outlets, holler at my email email@example.com. Deal? Coo. Anyways, allow this artist to introduce himself. He's an 18 year old kid from Cali ready to put himself in the Hip Hop scene. A track by Kreateen is on the bottom. If you like what you hear, go ahead and download the mixtape. You can also follow him on twitter @kreeUHteen and his facebook page http://www.facebook.com/kreeateen.
"Kreateen's second mixtape, Sorry, It's Not The Supplement, is now finished! The young 18 year old rapper is finding his niche by reminding us that music is about venting, problems, and all around fun. Just 11 tracks and only a couple features, Kreateen, showcases his unique rhyming skills. Sorry, It's Not The Supplement illustrates Kreateen's vision of Hip-Hop with production ranging from King Boom, to Blue Sky Black Death, to Thelonious Monk. With no catchy hooks - rather no hooks at all - Kreateen invites you into his inner thoughts."

Shouts to 2dopeboyz for being the inspiration of this blog. I look to achieve the same success they have regarding introducing and promoting new artists to every individual. (2)dope.
"We've been warning y’all about this for some time. And now… the time has come for AlBe to bless your iPods with some great music! A marriage of boom bap, spoken word, live instrumentation and classic quotes, Raphael Dela Ghetto (shouts to those that catch the reference) is something I’m very proud to say that I had a part in helping create. Do yourself a favor and hit the jump for the tracklist, stream and download link."
Kendrick Lamar stopped by Sway and Devi Dev's radio show this morning to kick some rhymes over 5 different beats. Pretty Coo. KENDRICK CAN OUT RAP YOUR FAVORITE RAPPER!

This dude had so much promise. If you wanna know the back story behind Charles Hamilton, here it is. Started out with a good mixtape and then got on the cover of the BEST XXL FRESHMEN LIST in 09'. Due to the fact he wasn't really pushing anything out, Interscope dropped him from the label before he had the chance to release his first album. He ended up selling it for free. THEN the dude got punched by his own ex girlfriend in a rap battle gone bad. AND THEN! the dude checked himself into the mental hospital. As soon as the dude got out, homeboy fought a cop. Seriously, you can't make this up. Let's all have a moment of silence and listen to what could've been a dope career.

There's a good thing and a bad thing about this statement. First off, The Weeknd is an amazing artist. Very unique, very fresh, so I'm intrigued by this collaboration because whenever these two get's together, it's some dope legit music. The bad thing about this statement. Drake basically said that The Weeknd possibly wrote a quarter to a half of his album. Four songs man? FOUR SONGS?! What is this? Watch the Throne?! I'm just saying, he pretty much said that The Weeknd is ghostwriting for him. Whatever. I'll see what's up on November 15th when Take Care drops.
It's SUNDAY, which means laziness, football, and of course SOME BANGIN INSTRUMENTALS BY HOMIE JON!! WHOO. Oh and in case you guys are wondering, I am going to drop my first rapping track on October 31st, as a thank you for helping me receive 100 "likes" on my facebook page. The support is amazing. Anyways, we got two tracks from my man Jon. First one is called "Reality" and the next one is called "Honesty". I thoroughly enjoyed both of em, but if you asked me my favorite...it'd have to be "Honesty". You tell me yours though. Leave your comments about how dope the track is orrrrrrr tell us that it sucks and we need to stop.
If you're an aspiring artist and you're a fan of these beats, hit up my homie Jon's facebook page. He goes by Mint Condition. For real man, he's open for anyone who's willing to use his instrumentals.
