Every now and then I put a little hip-hop/rap on the blog, because I like it (as if I need another reason?), and can’t help but want to share it.
I was listening to the Kendrick Lamar sample ofTame Impala’s Feels Like We Only Go Backwards from the new Divergent movie soundtrack and it reminded me of the remix of Black Skinhead with Elephant, so thought I’d share both for those who maybe like the indie, electronic, surf-rock genre we usually post about, but want to dabble in a little hip-hop. Enjoy!
Kendrick Lamar – Backwards Feat. Tame Impala
Kanye West – Black Skinhead vs. Tame Impala – Elephant (#1 Mashup Metamix)
2013 is just hours away and I’ve been trying to come up with a top album list for 2012* these past few days, but I gave up because I just haven’t given enough albums the time and devotion it takes to name them “best of” so INSTEAD, I went the song route, because that is a safer place for me. SO, to christen the end of the year I’ve decided to bundle 12 of my favourites song and basically make myself a personal 2012 soundtrack that I hope you can enjoy as much as I have. Hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year!
* If I were to give you three albums that I enjoy every second of whenever I put them on I would go with: 1-Channel Orange (worth the hype– times a bajillion) 2-Happy to You and 3-Coexist.
