My hip-hop/rap posts have become quite non-existant. That’s not to say I am completely done with it. I listen to the genres all the time. But my boy has just started up his new blog that features a tone of new rap/hip-hop as well as a good amount of electronic music. The site is SwagSounds.com. Check them out when you have a chance. Here’s my favorite song from the newest XV mixtape Zero Heroes prod. by Seven entitled Pictures On My Wall.
You might have thought we have been sleeping on our rap/hip hop game. Well here is a wrap up of what we have missed out on for the past couple of weeks. Expect more to come with weekly updates on thefreshnew.
Rick Ross has been killing it with wale and meek milli. Maybach music has established themselves with G.O.O.D. music and YMCMB. Pandemonium is the hottest track out in rap right now.
You might not have heard of XV, but the rapper from Kansas came out with possibly the best mixtape of the year. DO NOT SLEEP ON XV. That’s Just Me

Tyga from YMCMB has been holding it down for the west coast. His new mixtape blackthoughts Vol.2 shows his improvements from just a few months ago. The mixtape features colabs with Game, Pharrell, and Lloyd. Here is We Up

Ever since XV’s new project, Zero Heroes, has been announced, many of his new tracks have leaked. This newer, leaked track is more reminiscent of his older style, which means I definitely like it. Once released I do plan on buying this project, support your up and comers and grab this album off iTunes. Also, a new track from Chiddy Bang featuring Mac Miller called “Heatwave”. The song has a catchy tune running the background with small electric effects, making it a pretty classic Chiddy Bang song. Check the bonus, some dubstep to Big Sean and Chiddy. Keep it fresh!
