Most people know K’naan from his song Wavin’ Flag that gained praise when played in the World Cup, but a lot of people don’t know about his other songs. So go listen.

Adam Tensta – Dopeboy

I just loved this visual that a graphic designer created after hearing this Tensta song!
Adam Tensta is an artist who makes hiphop, elctro, house, and pop music that I half stumbled upon through YouTube and somewhat due to my brother (yes he might’ve actually done something good for me for once lol).  This song “Dopeboy” is just dope haha. The video is really awesome too. Hope you guys enjoy and here is some more information regarding Adam Tensta:
He is 27 years old from Tensta, Stockholm and is a Swedish Rapper. As a child he grew up with a heroin father and a society of crime but he was nourished and found his sanctuary in his music. Something that I find very intriguing and respect a lot is that he excludes alcoholm cigarettes, and drugs from his lifestyle – which are all things that society (including those middle school kids) have come to think is what life is composed of. They clearly don’t have real vision of the world but this rapper Tensta does. He makes some really finely produced music and does a good job of bringing solid lyrics as well. The lyrics will get stuck in your head and have you coming back for more listen guaranteed!

Joshua Bennett – Don’t Let Me Go

This is my first time hearing of Joshua Bennett and I am extremely pleased with what I’ve heard.
Thanks to Confusion of PnP for letting me hear this track!
He is not what you depict in your mind when you hear the word “rapper” and is far from your mental image of one too. He’s read his poetry at the White House and has received praise from President Barack Obama as well as the First Lady, Michelle Obama. It doesn’t stop there. He has written and published a book called Jesus Riding Shotgun and is pursuing his PhD (at Princeton I think but am not 100% sure). I love his style, ability to speak his mind and convey his true emotions through his words. Sometimes today’s music often lacks and is absent minded when it comes to music with meaning. We need more intelligent people who have substance and knowledge rather than people who are equivalent to a human being in a vegetative state.
Much Love for Joshua Bennet and I hope he continues to make wonderful music! Enjoy!

OnCue – Let Loose

I wrote a really nice lenghty post so you guys would not miss out further on OnCue and in the process forgot I had yet to show you this too! Thanks to 2DopeBoyz for reminding me! He is going to drop what will arguably be the illest mixtape of the year soon! Here is another track from it which just speaks for itself. Enjoy!
