Artist Spotlight - Ears

Ears Myspace Pic


For my 2nd artist spotlight in the new series I want to bring you the up and coming production talent that goes by the name Ears out of Sweden.. Ears is making his way in the biz by producing for up and coming artists and is now naturally a primary go to guy for the RMH... After listening to some of his beats I gotta say hes one to watch. His style seems to be J. Dilla meets Sweden meets Pre Graduation Kanye West.. Interestingly enough he doesn't seem to do that Electrohop thing thats so big out there right now.. The guy has talent on the boards... Maybe not Avant-Garde anymore.. But supremely dope so its a no brainer your gonna be hearing his beats all over the place soon.. So today I bring you some beats to munch on.. Thank me later.





Ears - Ajusted<--can't believe no one has bought that yet...Wooooo..



Ears - Goodmourning



Ears - Rize

Blu - Amnesia ..Blu v. Billie Holiday ...

Blu - Amnesia


Blu = Best Rapper in the game right now .

I gotta say I'm a sucker for Great lyricists using jazz samples so I was instantly sold on this one. This one is Blu over a loop of Billie Holiday's 'Am I blue'..

Tokin Black Guy = Produced by Kanye or Kanye's Alter Ego or New G.O.O.D Artist?

Kanye West X Tokin Black Guy


So have you heard the rumors going around about this artist going by the name Tokin Black Guy.... Well it seems bloggers and internet nerds all over were starting to think there maybe a Lupe/Japanese Cartoon type thing going down(utter nonsense since the guy sounds nothing like Ye)... Next the rumor was that he was a new artist being produced by YE(listening to these tracks if I were Ye I'd be open to taking credit), which Kanye's spokesperson has just called 'totally bogus' (via Spin)... And now the rumor is he is close to signing to G.O.O.D music.. Well whatever the case is I thought his music was crazy dope and you needed and deserved to hear it.. So Tada!



Tokin Black Guy - Body Clock <--this is just retarded!!



Tokin Black Guy - Turn My Music High<--next level ish!

S-Preme - Clear ..Freaking Amazing!

S-preme - Clear


This right here is bananas! Using a Radiohead sample, Amplive (from Zion I) creates this amazing soundscape while S-preme kicks existential raps with emotional, sublime and heartfelt verses. the track is dark and has a very Radiohead meets Linkin Park meets Bay Area Hyphy feel.. You even get some auto-tune(Woohoo).. Very freaking cool..

Video: Pittsburgh Slim - My Bitch is Crazy



I ain't gonna lie I never heard of dude before I saw this.. Its one of those I might have heard him and totally forgot cause it wasn't that interesting type of things.. This ish is quite club ready..

Video: Blue Scholars X Vimby




Blue Scholars rep my hometown properly.. Its so great to see dudes who artistically rep Seattle on the hip-hop tip... Its always bubblin in the 206.. BTW makin music in a basement on bootleg software... Is their any way better to make music?? They speak on their music, Seattle's WTO protests(which I was there for), Activism.

Mick Boogie & De Notes Present: Mae Day - Cherish the Day (Mae/Sade Mixtape)

Mick Boogie & De Notes Presents: Mae Day - Cherish The Day


This came my way via Mick Boogie this morning. I love Sade... I'm male and I'm not afraid to admit it. 'Cherish the Day' is an all time favorite.. I grew up on this stuff.. So when I saw this I thought ok I'm gonna like this, but now I love this.. The tape is basically Mae Day rapping over looped Sade tracks, but its done with class and its thematic conscious. I gotta show love to creative young ladies doing their thing and Mae did it quite well on this one. I had seen Mae on imeem before, but never took the time to check her music.. Note for the future.. gotta give em a listen.



check out Mae Day

1. Maeday Maeday! (Fear)
2. DJ (Same Song) (King of Sorrow)
3. Hold On (Nothing Can Come Between Us)
4. Crime (Is It A Crime)
5. Give It All (Give It Up)
6. Jezzebelle (Jezzebel)
7. Sweetest Taboo (Sweetest Taboo)
8. No Ordinary Love (No Ordinary Love)
9. Still Love H.I.M. (Your Love Is King)
10. Keep Looking (Keep Looking)
11. Cherish the Day (Cherish The Day)
