“C3P0 Was a Sad Boi” new music from Xay Scott

Xay Scott is a producer who has worked with many artists from Lil Uzi Vert to Good Charlotte and now he’s trying his hand at making music of his own. I know the dude and we talk a lot actually and he’s been telling me to check out the track and I am always doing 10k different things so it takes me awhile to get the stuff.

I finally played it an hour ago when I was doing one of my posts I just published and now I am on its 4th play and I fear I am actually going to be replaying it more. Lol. Like forreal though. So many rappers say they are making a new wave or doing something others aren’t and that just 99% of the time not true. Xay actually does it though on this track and honestly I don’t really know how to describe it besides saying like yeah it’s rap. But it’s rap if C3P0 was a Sad Boi.

And at 1:50 it’s criminally to short.

ILOVEMAKONNEN quietly releases a new EP

As a super fan of ILOVEMAKONNEN, I have to take the good with the bad. Also I have to ride the rollercoaster. I mean, since 2014, Makonnen has provided me with dozens upon dozens of tracks that I love and connect with. Buttt in the last year and a half his output has slowed down tremendously and the songs he has released were way to experimental or freestylish for me.  And that track he did with Rae Sremmurd, sounded way to Blink 182 for me. Also I have to understand that he just lost someone he loved (Lil Peep) I can’t expect to much from him right?

Well, about 11 days ago he quietly released an EP that is a 4 track collaboration with the producer Ronny J. Again, Makonnen is back on his freestyle stuff but the last two tracks “Lonely Thoughts” and “Kick It” are fire. I personally think “Kick It” is the best track he has released in at least a year.

ILoveMakonnen has a secret music video.

So, recently ILoveMakonnen released a banger called “Back On The Xan’s”. The instrumental is a rock type beat that has amazing guitar riffs and was produced by Danny Wolf the producer who did “Trust Me Danny”.

Recently while youtube searching I saw that there was a remix of the song that supposedly had a video. I clicked on the thumbnail and was amazed at what was happening before me. Some 13 yr old white boy named Rayman on the beat, and his little friends, made a music video for the remix he did of Back on the xans. But what is crazy is that ILoveMakonnen appears throughout the music video.

So many questions… How? Where did Makonnen meet this kid? just in general, wtf?

ILOVEMAKONNEN is back with two new music videos!

My three favorite rappers currently are Boosie, Young Buck, and… ILOVEMAKONNEN. Hell he might even be the top 1 on that list, he really is my favorite outchea right now fr.

Well he is back with two new music videos,

  1. Ilovemakonnen “official music video” for “Is You Plugged?”

Quick question, did Uber sponsor this video?

2. IloveMakonnen “official music video” for “Back on the xan”

The beat for this is rediculous~~~

If you like ILoveMakonnen check Onji out!

I have no clue who Onji is. However I really like the above video and track, dude with the man bun goes in. White ILOVEMAKONNEN. Mr. Makonnen has recently dissapeared/let me down as of late. So maybe this could be the guy to hold me over until Makonnen comes back.  Onji if you are reading this please let me know if you are down to do an interview.  There’s more tracks below to check out if you are interested, I have yet to do so, but I will definitely make my way back.




Hooligan Chase is Skateboard Trap Art Rap

As I get older, my musical taste are changing. I came into hip hop an Eminem Stan, Then it was Immortal Technique, then it was Just Jack and Atmosphere, years later, it was Speaker Knockerz, Boosie Badazz & Young Buck were the greatest and you couldn’t tell me nothing. What I am saying is that its clear that as we get older are music taste’s change, especially with rap, which is a genre one can use to reflect the lifestyle and personality you are currently living.

Nowadays if you ask me who are the rappers that get the most play from me, and I will tell you ILoveMakonnen, with Chance The Rapper, a distant second. As I get older, I get weirder, I have more appreciation for art, and uniqueness. Maybe that’s why for some reason I fux with this artist I just found called Hooligan Chase. I have no idea who the fuck he is.

I was contacted on Reddit by someone who gave me a tip about an interesting YouTube channel and there was about a dozen videos to pick from. For some reason the name “Hooligan Chase” piqued my interest. Now I am on a rabbit hole trying to wade through the catalog this artist has available online.

I call this Skateboard Trap Art Rap or Experimental Trap Art Rap. Idk. It’s not as easily as digestible as ILoveMakonnen by ANY means. This is art rap that is beautiful but also caustic, in a literal and figurative sense.  Hooligan Chase somehow hits halfway between G-Eazy and XXXTENTACION and f*ck it I like it. It bangs! I hope to hear a lot more from whoever this guy is.

*Dude raps on top of a cuckoo beat!!!
