"SPENCER" FROM BIG WAYDE'S UPCOMING "HIGHBERNATION" EP
From Nancy B.
First introduced to the New York radio audience by none other than Kay Slay, twenty-three year old White Plains native, Big Wayde, went on the grace the mixtapes of some of Hip Hop's finest: Envy, Green Lantern, Haze and Wats to name a few. Following on the heels of his successful Ill Will-hosted mixtape, "Herb N' Limelight" which debuted on HipHopDX earlier this year, and in keeping with the marijuana-infused message around which his name is built, Big Wayde presents "Highbernation", a five-song EP set to drop December 19th.
Last week, Houston producer Trakksounds and www.thafixx.com released a new compilation titled "Intervention" featuring southern heavyweights Bun B, Killer Mike, Freddie Gibbs, Pill, Slim Thug and many others.
Here goes a track we didn't want to go overlooked, "Amazing" with Devin the Dude, Mistah FAB and others.
Artists: Devin the Dude, Mistah FAB, Rittz & P. Dukes
Few rappers' careers have experienced even half of the longevity of Bay Area living legend Andre Nickatina. With a new year approaching, the artist formerly know as Dre Dog finds himself entering the 20 year mark since his emergence on the scene in 1992 – and he has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. Back in September he released a video for the single "Still Gon' Ball," and now, with plans to release a new album on April 20, 2012, Nickatina is back a new song and video from that album with "Call The Dealer."
The video does what many fail to do in this day and age of public access to technology: tell a story. As Nickatina narrates from a distant room, we are provided with hands on experience of the dope game as his lyrics suggest. "I feel 2012," says Andre, " will be a big dope year. Not necessarily for me, but for people doing and selling dope. This video is a dedication to that."
New Orleanian producer/deejay Quickie Mart presents "Roll It Up", his contribution to Eviction Notice, the new album from rapper Wax. "Roll It Up" also features QM's partner in crime Gotham Green, who he collaborated with on the Haze Diaries mixtape trilogy, and singer/songwriter/musician Jes Hudak, whose song "Wasted" QM remixed as a free download to promote the Space Monkey Radio EP, a collection of artist-approved dubstep remixes of songs by Freddie Gibbs, Slightly Stoopid, Ricky B, Shyvonne and Justina which dropped yesterday on Beatport (click here to stream). QM and Jes also recently released the music video to "Alive", their first single together as the duo Bang You're Dead.
