Today begin’s my Birthday Countdown! Happy Monday to me.
Oh, and here’s some new music too.
“Cudi the Kid” makes his official debut in this mash-up mix, with both Steve Aoki and Travis Barker as wingmen. This song here furthers the line of separation between many popular genres of music these days, as we are seeing elements of hip-hop, rock and roll, and electric dance music all morphed into one.
The provides some awesome visuals, with lots of images that I feel talk about themes that are deeper than the song suggests. **On a side note, Steve Aoki is the shit, and I wish I had his job. Check out the video for Cudi the Kid here:
Most of you might remember this song from last week’s edition of Music Mondays, and now here is the vid. Now I’m pretty rue this isn’t the official music video (it says the director’s name for about 10 seconds in the intro, and Kanye is nowhere to be seen), but it sure as hell should be. Watch as a snack-sized Yeezy strolls around NYC with his model-bitch in tow, acting a fool as I’m sure his adult doppelganger would approve of. This little kid is straight hilarious. Really though, how many bottles of Theraflu is Kanye going to sell with this one?

A$$$$$AP. This guy never ceases to disappoint. First Live Love A$AP, now this? Here he comes with his newest single “Goldie” off of his solo project, Long Live A$AP due to release this summer. Check Rocky out on a Hit-Boy produced track (Kanye West, Lil’ Wayne) as he goes in over one of the hardest basslines I’ve heard in a minute. His flow is literally too nice. If you are sleeping on A$AP, you seriously need to wake the fuck up.

After playing an awesome show at the University of Florida a few nights ago, Mac Miller decided to bless us with another usic video as well. This one here is for his song “Thoughts from a Balcony” off his latest project Macadelic, and features him doing normal, Mac Miller shit. (Although I don’t approve of the image he’s promoting of openly chugging cancer-sticks.) Either way, I can’t hate a man that is on his grind, and Mac Miller makes good music, hands down. He earns his spot on The Swag Section too. Check out his video for “Thoughts from a Balcony” here:
Lastly (but only because they’re the most fashionable in attendance) is one of my favorites, Curren$y a.k.a. Spitta Andretti, with an unlikely pairing in that of Wale Folarin. What’s interesting is I don’t think these two have ever done a collabo together, but Wale just sounds so natural repping Jets over the microphone. Watch as the two chill in what I’m sure is Curren$y’s private hangar, rapping about bitches and lavish lifestyles (as per usual). Curren$y even chooses to serenade us with a verse all about his cars this time around, which are always nice to hear him spit about. Check out the video for “What It Look Like” here:
