Back in Action

Download: Ode to 2010

First and foremost, big ups to the new year. 2010 was a loaded year in music and hopefully the trend continues and I’m able to provide some interesting music/thoughts throughout 2011. Secondly, my bad for such a long break. I needed some time away from the blog-o-sphere to take care of some school work as well as reassess the quality of the music I post and listen to. Its real easy to get caught up with the numerous sites I visit and just start flooding the web with a bunch of new music and overhyped artists. As always, I’ll try and avoid that and limit my posts to stuff that I really vibe. As promised, here is a mixtape of just about everything I would’ve posted in the past month. The tracklist speaks for itself; wide range of artists, wide range of hip-hop with some “no-genre” tracks [Pun intended]. Spin the Track!

Wayne’s World

The Baker’s Dozen Presents: Wayne’s World Mixtape

Fact: the past 2 months in the music realm have been bleeding G.O.O.D music. Kanye West and his entourage of artists have surged into the spotlight of hip-hop supremacy and are currently the most downloaded and discussed MC’s in urban culture. However, I am fairly certain this Kanye craze is simply due to the absence of hip-hop’s reigning monarch Lil Wayne. The incarceration of Dwayne Carter sparked a “Free Weezy” campaign that has touched all corners of the world wide web. I’ll be honest, I love Lil Wayne and his music. His new album is bound to go platinum (if it hasn’t already) and  The Carter IV is going to be the most anticipated album of 2011. I’ll leave this post relatively short although I have about a million and one more things to say about Young Money’s CEO. For all of you missing Weezy or simply tired of Kanye, here is a little something something curtsey of The Baker’s Dozen.
