4080Records Presents: Freestyle Love Supreme

These cats are just shockingly talented, I think.

The doper of these rappers is actually a Broadway star, having written his own musical called “In the Heights”.  Google that shit, or go see it if you can.  This thing has one 4 Tony awards already!

More impressively, the kids of Freestyle Love Supreme put on a show every few weeks in NYC, and would be worth going to see I think.  Their blend of comedy and hip hop is an interesting take on the freestyle kick, replacing the innate combativeness with a touch of humor.

Check out the CollegeHumor video below for a taste.

Analog Giant: Wale featuring Lady Gaga video.

Analog Giant, a blog I tend to like for the most part, posted this monstrosity of a video.  To be fair to them, they didn’t endorse it at all.

This is a Wale and Lady Gaga collabo.  I think my head just snapped thinking about it.

Up until this point I’ve been a fan of Wale.  He’s been a pretty good performer and adventurous, to boot.  He put out the Mixtape about Nothing a while back, which was a Seinfeld-based rap album.

This is too far.  It’s almost like he’s trying to be Kanye.  Maybe it was meant to be ironic?  I can only hope so.

Free music from Del the Funky Homosapien

Huge props to p.o.b over at Metafilter for posting this.   Apparently Del decided that people need a bit of a pick-me-up in these tough economic times, so he has released a couple of small EPs for free (and legal) download.  The two song packs available for free download aren’t very long or anything, but they are definitely worth checking out.
