Hip Hop Radar (Week Of 4/13-4/19)

LONDON  California Mood Music, Vol. 1: The 4:20 Experience
California Mood Music, Vol. 1: The 4:20 Experience provides smooth almost silky vocals from Oakland, CA vocalist/producer London (@LondonLand). The entire six (6) track EP speaks of marijuana smoking in such a dreamy and idyllic way that you cannot help but vibe along to it. London’s vocals and production also make that so much easier.

SUGGESTIONS: “Rollin’”, “What You Smokin’ On”, “Sativa"
RATING: 4.8 of 5

JON CONNOR  A Tribute To The Notorious B.I.G.
It is a tall order to rap over a Biggie Smalls classic. It’s tantamount to blaspheming a particular god. But with DJ Khaled himself hosting it, I had to listen. The tape, aptly named A Tribute To The Notorious B.I.G., sees rapper Jon Connor (@JonConnorMusic) using classic beats to tell his own amazing stories that seem to ensnare you as soon as he opens his mouth.

SUGGESTIONS: “Juicy’”, “Sky’s The Limit”, “Notorious Thugs"
RATING: 5 of 5


RUM  King Of The Jungle 3
Rum (@RumWeTheBest) gives us an amazing tape entitled King Of The Jungle 3. I say this because this one gives me that heavy mixtape hustle vibe I grew accustomed to growing up in Savannah, GA and attending college in Atlanta, GA. His delivery is unique and his delivery engages your ears. It has love songs, street anthems, and some deep introspection. It’s the perfect mixtape.

SUGGESTIONS: “Whining’”, “Forever My Nigga”, “My Block"
RATING: 4.5 of 5
