Now you know we keep it fresh round here and this video off of The Big 10 mixtape for the joint “Put Your Hands Up” is evidence of that. If you havn’t got your free download, hurry up and please do cause you’re starting 2012 off on a bad foot. Gotta love the comedy eliment of the video and come on fellas, you know we’ve all been in this position of trying to juggle a few girls in one tight ass circle. Either way the beat knocks and 50 is on his usual vibe but his flow sounds a bit more harsh, back to that early 2000’s style. As I said before, get your year started off right with “Put Your Hands Up”

Ok at first glance you may think it is Drake, but no, its the return of Ryan Leslie. Now you may be saying a commercial R&B act, why is this showing up on here? Ryan Leslie has been on the scene and in the background for a minute, producing hits for a few of your favourite hardcore MC’s (Fabolous, Llloyd Banks, Booba etc.) but the fact of the matter is, the man is a genius. While in his teens he managed to be accepted into Harvard, Standford and Yale. And some folks still dont think the hip hop community is educated (smh). But on the real, watching him work and craft up banging hits is inspiring and he is clearly a producer to be respected.


Since this weekend has already kicked off with a bang for some of us, let us now motivate the rest of you to join in. Now here, we dont really push R&B too hard but we do, and always do, promote having a good-ass time. Check the vibes from Chris Brown’s after party at Diablo’s nightclube and get in the celebrating mood, you know you deserve it. We’re in this for long haul..

Andru The Crook has done it! You can officially blame him for ruining your friday night thanks to this House of Pain remix. The track starts off easy and builds real slow until bang, your walking to you neighbour’s house wearing nothing but socks, covering your genitals and trying to explain why your house is on fire..yes, blame it all on Andru The Crook. On the reals, its got some nice dance floor potential and I can see the massive going nuts to this one..big ups. This is the perfect track to start off the long weekend of celebrating. “Ill serve your ass like John Mcenroe”

As we move into the soon to be infamous party weekend thats ahead, I thought I’d drop a wicked track from Gracious K. The versitile UK MC has returned with something more in the vein of hip hop but still something you can cut a rug to.  You may know him from 2009’s funky house banger “Migraine Skank” or this summer’s “21 Dares“, but this time around he’s eased the tempo just enough for the folks on the wall to nod their heads to.  Free up yourself and throw your Hands in the Air


Its Latin, Afro, Afro-Latin, Caribbean inspired music created by slowing down a Dutch house record at the hands of an American. Yeah I know, music now days needs to come with a geography lesson and Moombahton is no exception. But Im not here to debate origins or founding fathers, Im here to figure out where the scene is heading. After a night of watching womens’ waists, busts and everything else that could be surgically enhanced move to these records, I was instantly a fan. Its got good rhythm, bass and a few funky sounds plus some catchy hip hop samples here and there. But where will it go next? Will it be the new dubstep in two years, the word on everyone’s lips until Skrillex comes along and fills it with noise and scares off the locals? (I ACTUALLY LIKE SKRILLEX) or will it remain something only us 4am party people know about while bumping uglies with the girl in the club wearing pink Uggs, a bikini top, thick frame red glasses and a gold chain that says “Gangsta”.


It seems like dancehall’s tempo was getting faster and faster while more and more people were leaving the scene at an even faster pace. Enter Charlie Black. The “new” kid on the block has recently been dropping dancehall with a 1990’s (its prime years according to most fans) style while still pushing a new sound at the same time. Now sure some of his tracks can sound a bit more like 90’s soca or recent hip hop, but his vocal delivery is pure dancehall deejay every time. Ether way you slice it, he’s producing dancehall thats fun to listen and dance to. Mind you, some people may not like the agree with the lyrical topics but hey, the man is just saying how much he loves women..is it really that bad? So feel free to slap this on the radio and dance around your house while no one’s watching, its pretty infectious
