Music Monday: “Sushi” – Hoodie Allen

Well it has been a while since I have done a Music Monday post but there was a reason I didn’t write about Hoodie’s song that was released last week, I needed it for this week!

Hoodie Allen is one of my favorite rappers out there, his lyrics are smart, his songs are catchy, and he is a rap Zac Efron. What more could you ask for?

It has been a little while since Hoodie released new music but clearly fans are here for Hoodie’s new music because it has already charted on Spotify and Itunes.

This song was definitely worth the wait, I am a big fan of it. Catchy, fun lyrics, and Hoodie sounds great on it!

I have decided that this year has to be Hoodie’s year for making it mainstream. It seems like he doesn’t really care if he is on a track with Britney or Camila Cabello or anything, but I genuinely don’t think he needs to feature a well known female singer to get those plays. Hoodie can do it all himself.

So check out “Sushi” below and be ready because on September 29th he will be dropping his new album The Hype.

Music Monday: “Wine & Cigs” – Chase Stebbins

If you’ve followed my Music Monday posts at all there is a good chance that you’ve seen Chase Stebbins featured here a few times. He was a local Boston rapper who is now living in Los Angeles trying to follow his dreams.

In my opinion this is probably his best song, it shows his true growth as an artist, trying out a different sound, and making it work. This video is dope too, I just had to throw that out there.

Luckily I was able to ask Chase a few songs about his new sound, his big move to LA, and his biggest influences.

1) What inspired this song?
The song was about a conversation i had with my mother about moving to LA and following my dream

2) This is a new sound from you, are you planning on continuing down this route or just continue to try out different sounds?
I do want to continue down this route when it comes to my sound. I am comfortable on every record now. I know who I am with my music now and because of that I can start growing

3) You’re a Massachusetts native who ventured out to Los Angeles to follow his dreams. What was the hardest part of moving across country?
The hardest part was giving up all the connections and relationships back home. It’s a complete fresh start which is scary for some, but I learned to love the challenge.

4) Can we expect a full album or mixtape any time soon?
I have a few things in the works, but don’t hold your breathe for a full on album just yet

 5) What artists inspire you the most when it comes to your own music?
I’m currently taking a lot of inspiration from Mac Miller and Chance The Rapper. I love to watch them perform because they just let the music and beat pull them and make it look so natural.

Chase is definitely making waves on his own though on the West Coast. He has already performed at a ton of different venues, and is headlining his first show tomorrow May 16th at The Study Hollywood.

All that I can say is Chase has come a long way from rapping Eminem at karaoke to putting together incredible songs with deep lyrics.

His time is coming, I can feel it.

Be sure to check out his SoundCloud , Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook for updates!

Music Monday: The Never Story – J.I.D

Image result for j.i.d

Holy shit. There is really nothing else I can say about J.I.D .A few weeks ago I followed this rapper J.I.D on Twitter and since, I haven’t been able to stop listening to his music. Seriously, he sounds so different and I absolutely so it. His word play, his beats, just all of it.

He sounds so different and it’s refreshing.

After trying to do some research, I still haven’t been able to find much about this artist. I know that he is from Atlanta, I know that he is signed to J. Cole’s Dreamville records, and I know that he is going to blow up soon.

In an interview with XXL , he mentions that he has been compared to Kendrick Lamar. When he was asked to describe his music he described it as “just like a cluster fuck of good shit. I don’t try to make one thing, I really try to experiment, even if its just the vocals or the beat. I can’t really describe my sound.”

This guy sounds like no one I have ever heard, something that I really respect in an artist.

The future of rap is here.

Be sure to follow J.I.D on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Soundcloud so you never miss an update. He is going to blow up shortly, make sure you can say you listened to him way back when!

Music Monday : “Shape Of You (Remix)” – Merkules

I have heard a lot of covers of “Shape Of You”, whenever Ed Sheeran puts out a song it’s immediately covered by a million people on YouTube, some are bad, some are good, ubut only few are incredible. Right when he I heard Merkules rapping over the “Shape Of You” beat my jaw dropped. This is what I like to call incredible.

This is the first I have heard about Merkules but he seems to have a pretty serious following on social media who it wouldn’t surprise me if he blew up shortly. Especially with his word play and his flow. I am all about it.

I don’t know much about him, there isn’t much info on his Facebook or Twitter but I just know that I am a big fan of him. I can’t wait to hear what else he will release!

Make sure to check out his Facebook, Twitter, Bandcamp, and his YouTube so you can keep up with all of his new music and updates.

Jay Z Becomes First Rapper Inducted Into Songwriters Hall of Fame


That’s right, Jay Z is going to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. This has been seven years in the making. He was nominated all the way back in 2010 but it was just confirmed that he will in fact be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

“Since 1996, 21-time Grammy award winner, Shawn ‘JAY Z’ Carter has dominated an evolution in popular culture. With more than 100 million records sold he is one of the best-selling musicians of all time,” the Songwriters Hall Of Fame site said about the induction of Jay Z.

I have to give HOV credit, that’s pretty awesome. I hope that Nas is the next rapper inducted because his music is out of this world incredible.

Today up and coming rapper Chase Stebbins released a visually stunning music video for “10 AM”. The song also features up and coming vocalist Miranda Rose, who has an incredible voice.

Chase is originally from Boston but moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of becoming the next big thing. Clearly he has a lot of talent and I genuinely believe that he will make it. With his rapping ability, play on words, and nice smile, there’s no way he won’t make it. His hustle is also like no other, something you have to respect.

In case you were wondering he has already opened for artists like Big Sean and Jeremih.

Be sure to follow his personal SoundCloud , Twitter, and Facebook for updates!

I know this song was a very personal one for him, so make sure to listen to the lyrics and watch the video in HD!

Listen to Shia LaBeouf Free Style On Sway In The Morning

Now this isn’t the first time that Shia has gone out and freestyle but this is pretty impressive, right?

I am pretty sure that Shia is one of the strangest people in the world, but I am really into it. He is a method actor but he can also go out there and freestyle on one of the biggest hip hop shows on the planet.

In my opinion he didn’t do too bad either.

Who knew that Louis Stevens could spit bars, right?

Happy 43rd Birthday Nas!

Nas is one of my all time favorite rappers. I know that I talk about how much I love pop music but rap? If you have songs have deep lyrics and a true meaning, I can get behind it. Nas is one of the best lyricists of all time, that is a fact. When it comes to an artist like him you have to respect him.

Somehow Nas has never won a Grammy, but has been nominated three times for Best Rap Album of the year, he does have a ton of awards under his belt though. My favorite fact about him? On his most recent album he put his daughter as a producer so she could receive royalties from it.

Also, In July 2013, he was honored by Harvard University, when it established the Nasir Jones Hip-Hop Fellowship, which will serve to fund scholars  who show potential and creativity in the arts in connection to hip hop.

So happy birthday Nas, I can’t wait for new music.
