Hip Hop From SoundCloud :: DJFAbb
If you haven't checked out SoundCloud, jump on it. It's a music/audio sharing site w/all kinds of goodies; freebies to be exact.
I like SoundCloud because you can search for the genre of music that you like as well as customize the audio player if you embed SoundCloud files to your blog or website. Those are little things, but little things make the world go round, right?
Movin right along ... if you upload music or audio files, they give you:
a limited amount of FREE space; which is a good amount
stats on who's listening to your files
the ability to add a Creative Commons license
the ability to allow people to download your files
People can comment in the timeline of the track
You get a direct link to the track
All kinda apps so that you're not stuck just using the web interface
I could go on, but you get the point. And I'm not getting paid to speak for this site. I just like what they're doing.
For those of you who are trying to get put on, this is your spot. For those who want to explore, they have a diverse palette for you (and not just music).
For this post, I was diggin DJFabb. This is a nice basic jam, but he hooks it up. I don't know how I feel about that "Pants on the Ground" near the end of the track; well, actually, I do know how I feel about it ... DJFabb loses some points on that, but this is nice.
Time to catch some beats and rhymes hip hoppers. You know how we do it ... kfox.
