Nothing but Hip Hop

Its a Tuesday we got through day of over the week so lets keep it going with some the latest Hip Hop drops.

No one new at all to the game Nas! One of my favorite MC's, this dude always keeps it 100% raw. From his heavy beats to his nasty skill.  This track "Nasty" is exactly that...

Next up Big Sean. Got a couple of tracks but this dude that will definitely bang in your system. First track  features Rascoe Dash and Mr. West.  "Marvin & Chardonnay" definitely is on of the catchy hook having, big bass thump, G.O.O.D music inspired jam. While the "100 keys"  with Ricky Ross & Pusha T has a very synthy, dark melodic, whip driving join. Enjoy

Now on to a classic track produced by Kanye West  with a smooth flow give by Cyhi Da Prynce and Big Sean.  With a jazz percussion, sax, and tamborine "Woopty Doo"  is a much needed break from the norm.

Now for on to the man that has been all over this blog Kanye West! When I seen that he put out another track (as usual) I was waiting for it to been thrown in to the pool of the rest of his songs, but his track sounds like it came from College Drop Out. "Mama's Boyfriend" has that same style like when he was first debuting...

Finally Back!

My apologize for taking so long for me to give you some new music, but got a new tracks for you! From Hip Hop to Indie Rock, old artist to new artist, new music has been pumping out every second it seems. Well lets dive in...

First we start off with a dude that never seems to stop making something new.. DRAKE. This new track title "Marvin's Room" has a real mellow dramatic feel to it, and spits real talk . Produced by his main man 40, this track is fire...

Nine times out of ten when I mention female artists making noise I usually hear names Lykke Li, La  Roux, and Adele. Not to take anything away from those amazing ladies, but this girl Rai Knight has had most of my attention when it comes to females. Not only does this girl flave when it comes to her style, her vocals have the same swag to match it.  "Let Me Go" is a very synthy, electronic sounding song. Enjoy!

Now as some of you prepare for prom 11' and seeing him with Jannelle Monae and Bruno Mars this up coming weekend, Mayer Hawthorne will still have most hype. Now saying that, here is a track from new latest ep titled "Impressions- the Covers." This is one is a cover from one of my favorite group  Chromeo "Don't turn the lights on."

We still on!

Well its a another Monday and like always waking up slowly and smiling at another great weekend. I got a couple of tracks that you might have heard heads talk about but didn't get a chance to check out. Also a couple of tracks I remixed and  a video of one of my fav groupies that have changed the game.


First up a quick jab at lil kim from Nicki Minaj. Now this beef has been going back and forth from Kim say'n For the last year she has been subliminally taking shots at me. Subliminally taking shots at the other girls in the industry. I mean come on, we read that interview where she said

 “Being that the other rap chicks in the game ain't got sh*t to do right now, when I'm by the pool they can feed me grapes.” I remember that sh*t, I keep my ears to the street at all the time. Just because I do my Hollywood thing and you know my Malibu Barbie thing don't mean my ear isn't to the streets at all time…”

Personally, I dont really care about the beef just keep'n it Hip Hop with retaliations with battle tracks. So heres Nicki's ...  Tragedy 

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN: Nicki Minaj - Tragedy (Kim diss)

We on to the CUDDER....  Now every since Kid Cudi stepped on the scene he has always kept it 100% him. I know a lof of "MC's" "Rappers" or whatever make a foundation then change it up... this dude has always made music that has strong indie influence with his hip hop background. He's latest track Capcom is no different... 


Just incase you feel asleep on this track... David Guetta put a nasty remix together of Snoop D.O. 2xG's Wet... and for you Dj's this joint BANGS!

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN: Snoop Dogg- Wet (David Guetta remix)

Now... The real reason I've been lagging on the blog is, because I have remixing, transitioning, and mashing up tracks for myself as well as other djs. So i want to definitely share the beginning stages of "Concrete Remixes"

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN: Waka Flocka - No hands (Concrete re-mash)

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN: LMFAO - Party Rock Anthem (Concrete hype edit)

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN: Chris Brown - Look at me now (Concrete bmore 134-73 transition)

And last but not least... THE LONLEY ISLAND! Since Sandberg debuted them on SNL these dudes have been making the funniest tracks with the illest beats. Their new single We're back! shows you exactly what I mean

Friday, March 25, 2011



First off all wanted to apologize for not writing for a couple of weeks, but i got a gang of tunes for you weekend! So LET'S GET IN!!


Let's start this off on the West Cost! This first track by Dr. Dre feat. Swizzie mos definitely  has that OG west coast feel that we all been waiting for Dre to drop. Not at all hating on his new work coming off the Detox album, but its been missing that west coast vibe. Not to worry "Chiiin" has the cure for that, it has that beat that makes you wanna roll your windows down and turn it up till your speakers crack.

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN: Dr. Dre feat. Swizz Beatz - Chillin

Now still on that Wess Wess... We got alil Snoop Dogg. This new joint titled "Eyes Closed" and features Kanye West and John Legend. This song has a lot of diversity from what were used to from Snoop-a-Loop. With samples of live guitar, drums, and has a whole different vibe. 

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN: Snoop Dogg feat Kanye West & John Legend - Eyes Closed


Now keep'n on that John Legend tip we leak into our next track that he covers by Adele. Rolling in the Deep really showcases one of the G.O.O.D members. Straight acapella and all around soul full song! 


One of D.C.'s finest Wale! Now if you remember my first post on this blog was a 90's mix I did, and had one song that made you wanna "JUMP! JUMP!" So i guess Wale wanted to as well, here's his freestyle off Kriss Kross' jump!


Last up for this hip hop part, Weezy and Ricky Ross. If I die today beat goes way hard and has nasty lyrics to match it. Enough said...

Monday, March 14, 2011

Jump off to the WEEK!

Aye!! What's good yall?!? I have a lot of new music for all of you hip hop enthusiast! So let's see what's more hood then this ghetto ass McHood ride.

Since Yeezy's release of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy every MC, rapper, or  whatever you want to call them has as jumped on Kanye's tip. So Weezy, Drizzy, and Big Sean decided to do the same with this All of the Lights remix.

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN: Kanye West feat Lil Wayne, Big Sean, and Drake -All of the Lights remix

We on to the next with Lupe Fiasco. Before I get to talking about this track, I have to say that his new album Lasers is nasty! The beats that he selected are on point and taking a new curve, shape, and image to his already established style. He's lyrics are real deep and has a lot more to talk about then just "Paper, bitches, and weed."So cop that! This track Stereo Sun doesn't at all stray from is album sound, I'm actually surprised it wasn't on there. But oh well...

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN: Lupe Fiasco - Stereo Sun

Every since the BET freestyle with hip hop giants Common and Kanye West, Big Sean defiantly caught my ear. Not even gunna lie, I didn't really pay much attention to him prior to that, but since this mixtape Finally Famous 3 came out my views have changed! Peep flow!

DOWNLOAD: Big Sean - Finally Famous 3 mixtape

No one new to the game, Dom Kennedy. Not really going to say much about this mixtape "Original Dom Kennedy," it will speak for itself.

Last but not least.... The Game and young money general Lil Wayne. Now personal I don't care when heads slow down a house tracks and make it a "hip hop" beat, but on this track Red Nation this went too hard! Sampling Benny Benassi "zombie nation" Game and Weezy annihilate the beat!

Wednesday, March 9, 2011


So its another Wednesday, weeks half over and almost time to kick of the weekend. I got a couple new tracks and videos for you today so ... Leeggoo!

Now I've always like Travis Barker even when he was the drummer for The Aquabats... yeah look it up its true. Anyway... Ever since he linked up with my fav dj  of all time DJ AM (RIP), I have had a higher respect for him. On their mixtapes AM & Travis literally killed beat! After he tapped into a whole new genre of music he beats have been getting better and better. His album Give the Drummer Some (out March 15) has so big named artist that rip up his beats. Heres a new come called If you want To feat Pharrell and Lupe Fiasco

DOWLOAD AND LISTEN: Travis Barker feat. Pharrell and Lupe Fiasco - If you want to

On to the next... one of premiere producers DIPLO. On this remix of Kelly Rowland feat. Lil Wayne Diplo throws heavy wobbles and nasty bass aka Dub step. Enjoy!

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN: Kelly Rowland feat Lil Wayne - MOTIVATION (Diplo Remix)

 Now this has to be one of my fav tracks out right now! Even before I  heard that Chris Brown, lil Wayne, and Busta were the ones who spit nasty flows on this song, there was talk of two of the hugest producers putting a track together AFROJACK and DIPLO!!! Put all of these talents together and you get FIRE!


MORE CHARLIE SHEEN! I really cant get enough so heres an awesome dubstep track I randomly received

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN; Charlie Sheen Dub Stepp'n

and I couldn't stop laughing when I seen this Video

One last but certainly not least thing i failed to mention

Just a Chill tuesday!

Ayo what's good yall!?! Sorry kinda fell off for a few days, but I'm back and got some new tunes for you to vibe to.

First up we got a new track from Khalifa.  Is it me or does this dude just have one speed like Charlie Sheen  and that speed is "GO!" For months now this cat has been putting track after track out, and keeps on banging new ones out like if no one hasn't heard black and yellow. Any way his new album Rolling Papers drops the 29th of this month.

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD: Wiz Khalifa - The Race

Not a new name to the game, young money himself lil Wayne. Word had is that this is one of those tracks that won't make it on his new album Da Carter IV.  I personally am digg'n this melodic yet ferocious beat.

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN: lil Weezy - We Back Soon

Lastly we have new Pusha T.  For his new upcoming album "Fear of God" he remixes Kanye's "Lost in the World." Enjoy.

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN : Pusha T - Lost in the Word

So to start off todays blog with no surprise... CHARLIE SHEEN. With all this talk of charlie I had to make a complete post of just him, and thing related to him. But before I give you a few thoughts on what I think about this interview, I would first like to you watch it for the first time or again!

Now my thoughts... LMFAO!

With all this talk about this tiger-blooded booger-sugar aficionado, some major controversy has surfaced. But what better way to compliment infamy with a celebration?! We all know Sheen parties hard so check out something else that's "winning", LA LEAKERS's very own Just-N-Credible's mixtape, Unemployed Winner. I won't spoil it by telling you about it just download it! I will say that J.Cred did work!

DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN: JustinCredible - Unemployed Winner

Ya, and btw I didn't write this blog by myself. As if you couldn't tell. Shout out Ari!

Start the week Right!

What up yall! I got a bunch of new music, so lets dive right in. Oh and I'm sorry I couldn't hook you up with a stream...I will on my new post.

 First up, new Willow! I don't really care what you guys think about me when I say, Whip My Hair is one of my favorite tracks to bang when I'm spinin'. So of course I'm going to break you off with Willows new track 21st Century Girl. 

Next up we got a freestyle by two of my favorite MC's Kanye West  & Mos Def.  Just a little background behind this little moment in hip hop history. It all went down in NYC at the Blue Note Jazz Club with Lupe Fiasco preforming with the band,  then  announced two MC's (Kanye West  & Mos Def) steal the spot light  and the rest is history. On a side note, it's bomb that these two juggernauts of hip hop still keep it real.

About two weeks ago I had the privilege of seeing  J. Cole preform and chill in VIP with him. After his performance, which was too fck'n hype,  I got a chance to hear him chop it up with Felli Fel. Hearing his words and his passion for what he does best, yet remaining humble is a rare thing to hear these days. "If you rise to the top with out legs and a foundation, what do you have left to fall on?" Anyway here is a new joint from Mr. Cole

And last but certainly not least--One of my favorite djs, FASHEN!!!!! Every time I see this dude he is wrecking the party! Gets dudes jump'n, females drop'n, and makes the bass shake so hard you think you crapped yourself. This past Friday he killed the jump off mix on power 106! If you haven't heard now your get to witness the underground electro scene main streamed....

First off, I wanted thank all of you for stopping by and checking out my blog. Harder than Concrete is all about new music, new spots, and stayin’ ahead of the curve. My team, friends, fellow DJs, and myself will be working hard to hit you with the latest hot spots, fashion, music, and other bangin’ jive you may not be up on.

So, I started this new thing called “I Remember When Wednesdays.” This is all about reminiscing about music, fashions, and other trends that you miss, forgot about, and just want to hear again. I started off with a 90’s house party mix. Yeah I know I was just a little little kid in the early 90’s but I remember watching MTV, house party movies, and listening to my aunts talking about how hype it was. Regardless, the music and lifestyle was just as fresh! From the gold MC hammer pants, to the bright neon shirts, and wild eraser head hair styles the 90's were dope. So enjoy this kick-off mix I did off the cuff with no set. Make sure to check back for more soon, and keep those fly ass dance moves going down!
