Check out Paul Marz

This hip hop artist, Paul Marz, popped up on my Facebook page in the right column w/the ads. It got my interest because it says that he's an Egyptian/MC lyricist though born in Staten Island.

I thought I'd check him out. The track below, "Sword of Sound" has a heavy layer, basement kind of sound. It's likable and flows well for Marz as he confidently lays down his lyrics. He has a good amount of tracks posted on SoundCloud too.

So whatcha got hip hoppers? Share the good stuff. kfox.

VIDEO: Madcon "Beggin'"

This song by Madcon is killer: "Beggin'". I'm crazy about the singing; that voice is sooo on point. But then they backed up the track w/a vid that just comes correct.

Hip hoppers, Madcon is taking you to school ... luckily, you'll enjoy the lesson. kfox.

Aesop Rock in Typography

I was checking out this track from Aesop Rock "9-5ers". It's a cool track, but there was one part of the song, where I was like ... "damn, that's strong." Then I found this vid that clearly highlights the lyrics. You're gonna like this.

Of course, you have to hear the entire track as well: Aesop Rock's "9-5ers"

Come on now hip hoppers, get outta that rut; make some plans to pay yourself. kfox.
