Back-to-back MMG posts for that hip-hop lovin’ ass. Uptown XO and AB the Pro link up on this grimy track. I fools with these dudes. This track is off of the Colour de Grey which you can find at your favorite digital media sales outlet, or hit up the Mello Music Group site for some physicals.
PA has always been a favorite of mine. That said, I only own a couple of his albums and neither are fantastic. (The first Cali Agents album is a banger, though.) It’s nice to see he’s settling in with a single producer and getting some support from the good minds over at Mello Music Group. This is the first single from the upcoming Gensu Dean-produced album, Abrasions.
2012 was big for music. John Mayer made a comeback. Green Day dropped three albums. El-P put more than his name into every critic’s mouth. Frank Ocean and the rest of OFWGKTA came out of the closet. A band named “fun.” existed. Pussy Riot happened and cries of injustice saturated Facebook statuses until it was time to Instagram lunch. And Barack Obama signed to Roc Nation. Lucky for me, things I care about also happened in the past three-hundred and sixty-five days. This is my 2012 year-end post. An alphabetized breakdown of the year’s highlights in music. I hope you enjoy. Creek my gangnam style:
Dice Game is one of the better albums of the year. Give a listen to one of the two bonus cuts, right here:
Mello Music recently had some copies of Dice Game printed on ivory-white vinyl. The purchase comes with a bonus 7″ that features “Parkour” and “Duckin’ Strays,” the other non-album track, on the B-side. Cop that package over at the MMG website before they’re all gone. Only one-thousand copies, so act quick.
