Wale post

January 17, 2010


Wale is playing in Vancouver in a few weeks at the best club in the city, Fortune Sound Club. Which I am totally excited about!

So I started having a re-listen to some of his mixtapes and tracks, and it totally reminded why I like all his stuff so much, and that this dude is one of the most exciting things happening in Hip Hop right now.

I thought i would post a few of his mixtapes that have been dropping over the last couple years. If you haven’t heard this dude, start now!

He also just dropped his first full length album called Attention Deficit you may have a little trouble getting it outside the states, but honestly these mixtapes are so bad ass they feel like a full length album and they are FREE!







Gucci Mane done Diplo style

January 14, 2010

If you surf the net looking for new tunes then you most probably seen this popping up all over the place. Straight from Mad Decent head honcho Diplo, this little project remix’s a bunch of tracks from Gucci Mane’s cold war mixtape.

I’m a little on the fence as far as being a fan of Gucci Mane, I mean any one with Gucci in there name is just a little wack. But he still does have some cool shit and a unique style so if you put that, and a roster of some of the dopest producers in the game together then you know its gona be fire!

I been really loving downloading mixtapes lately. I used to always just bi-pass them cause I couldn’t be bothered listening for an hour or whatever. But I have come to learn that listening to Mixtapes is the best way to hear new tunes!

The other great thing about a mix is that you can throw it on and do some work and not have to deal with the boring part of tracks as some helpful Dj has blended it all together!


Anyways I thought I would post some Muxtapes (that’s how us Kiwi’s pronounce it) that I have been given or downloaded in my travels and keep them moving through the interweb. Might be a little old to some of you, but quality none the less!



This one is a little weird (in a good way) at times but seriously I gotta rate this in the top ten mix’s of 2009. Its sounds like the future! With so many remix’s and edits in there its great listen. Thanks Discobelle!!
