Kid Cudi – A Kid Named Cudi (2008)[Mixtape]

Kid Cudi (aka The Man On The Moon) has been getting a lot of buzz lately for his unique blend of hip-hop and bit of electronica as well as his co-sign from big named cats like Kanye West & Pharell. If you like acts like The Cool Kids, Wale, & Jay Electronica you’ll probably love dude and if you’re into acts like Santogold & MIA you’ll be able to appreciate what this cat does as well. Peep the mixtape (if you’re late enough to not have downloaded it until now), and when his debut LP drops, cop it.

Hezekiah – I Predict A Riot (2007)

Straight of Illadelphia Rawkus artist Hezekiah (aka Mister Conscious Porn) puts it down as a mic controller as well as a producer. From listening to his last LP (Hurry Up and Wait) I imagine Hezekiah is best described as an MC who the conscious and mainstream crowds alike can relate with. That’s not to say he like a sort of Kanye West/Common , because his overall neo-soul influenced sound is what one expects out of a Philly native. Still he makes songs the everyman can relate to without being too dumb or too high and mighty. Big shouts to LeBlunt Flames for hitting us this one (as well as a shit load more which we’ll feature in the future). Listen to it and if you like it, buy it here.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Consequence – Don’t Quit Your Day Job (2007) + Don’t Forget ‘Em Video

A Tribe Called Quest protégé, Kanye West label signee, Consequence is the type of MC who easily appeals to fans who appreciate the new and old school Native Tongues appeal. He’s recently gained a bit of attention and mainstream play for his latest record, Don’t Quit Your Day Job, but he never waters his material down with filler or bubblegum.
