CDRadio episode 5. Recorded 2011.02.23. Over this past weekend I was listening to a lot of sounds & beat tapes from producers/artists out of Russia, so originally this was gonna be an episode featuring nothing but sounds from artist from Russia, but overtime I kinda scratched that idea. Though, I still left a number of the tracks in so listen out.
OFWGKTA‘s Tyler, the Creator & Hodgy Beats made their television debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night performing Sandwitches while being backed by The Roots. The performance was pretty nuts. Tyler running around the set going ape shit, garden gnomes, and a silent mental patient left Mos Def screaming ‘swag’ over & over into the camera. He even jumped on Jimmy Fallon’s back!
And when it was all said and done, Tyler found time to thank/dedicate the performance to Odd Future’s biggest fan, 2dopeboyz‘s webmaster, Shake (who, along with other hip-hop blogs like Nah Right, refuse to post OFWGKTA-related content).
New video from King Fantastic! Lost Art of Killing is one of my favorite songs from last year’s LP. Then again, whenever I listen to one song, I end up listening to the whole thing. The video is pretty ill. It’s directed by Nicholaus Goossen and guest stars Playboy Playmates Ida Ljungqvist & Heather Rae Young. If you’re hearing this for the first time, stop sleeping and download their Finger Snaps and Gun Claps album for free @thekingfantastic.com. Also check out the bts footage of the making of the video.

Nike Sportswear dropped Gnucci Banana & Spoek Mathambo‘s Pero Spicey mixtape today! They finished the mixtape sometime earlier this month, but NSW was holding it hostage for some reason. No worries, it’s out now and it’s everything you’d expect from the duo AND more. Nearly an hour of thumping tropical bass and electronic sounds.
