What better way to start off my afternoon in music than with some new material from our homie Calez. Today the young Chicagoan drops by with the first official song off his project Ceito entitled "Peaceful," which Calez produced himself. Along with this mpfree comes episode three of Calez's ongoing series, The American Dream Concept. Hopefully y'all been keeping up. TADC I have to say is by far one of the most entertaining and engaging video series I've seen to date since I got into this blogging thing. So take it from me when I say you need not miss another episode. C'mon and get with the program already.
For those of you snoozin' out here. Our homie Calez took to twitter earlier today to make the announcement that he'll be holding off on the release of his Ceito LP for a while. No biggie though. Expect to see another Bundle Pack serving as that Prelude in the near future.
Go ahead and add this to your playlist. #Ceito
Been working super hard on Ceito LP so putting it on hold and dropping another Bundle Pack. #Ceito: Prelude. Hear the sounds at 3pm
So tonight, Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar, and Jay Electronica got Twitter acting all sorts of crazy as Sean let loose of a track that was meant for his upcoming album, Hall Of Fame, but couldn't make it due to sample clearance.
Dubbed "No I.D.""Control", you can hear this epic, 7.5 minute track where all three emcees straight rap. No hooks. Just dope bars after dope bars.
UPDATED: Dirty, no tags, CDQ.
What grabbed everyone's attention: Kendrick Lamar giving much respect to every big-name emcee in the game today... and then proceeding to declare he's going to murder them (rap talk, of course). That's what got everyone in a stir tonight.
The whole song from beginning to end is dope. Everyone's talking about Kendrick, and rightfully so, but are we a little caught up in the moment? Sean and Elect were no slack as well. Whatever your thoughts, it's a great night in hip hop on this alone, and for that, we thank you *Tosh voice*
What are your thoughts on the "No I.D." Freestyle? Your favorite verse is __________.
Calez unleashes the first leak off his upcoming project, Ceito, with this thumpin' groove to ride to: "Thxs X Thxt". It boasts a stellar production from Tye Hill (perhaps best known for his Sir Michael Rocks collabs) and Calez delivers a mix of analysis and catchy lines throughout. This also feels like a great collab between rapper and producer as Calez really flows with the changing beat in the verses (I especially love when the beat fades out for a lil bit.) Also keep your ears tuned in to catch the lil nod to who Calez is sitting next to at Lolla in the cover art: Kendrick Lamar. #shoutout to the 2008ighties representa for representin' with our #Gowhere lid as well!
A bored Calez takes to Twitter tonight to liberate a freestyle he just recorded over the newly released instrumental to Big Sean's current single "Beware". Calez flips the sing-along style of the chorus with his own words and is overall humorous on this verse that honestly had me wanting a full version.
