#MixtapeMonday Trae Tha Truth - I Am King

For anyone that has been on Twitter today should know todays Mixtape Monday is a hands down award to Trae The Truth. I was not big on the dude till my timeline got flooded with “I Am King” post, then I had no choice but to give him an ear. With production credits and features by some of the greats like Snoop, B.O.B, Meek Mill,T.I and many more its no wonder why the buzz is they way it is. For those unfamiliar with Trae I recommend you give this tape a listen.

This dude Phora never fails to amaze me. New video touching on a subject most artist would not dare to touch on. Keep up with the kid..

Timothy Rhyme – “I Love My Life” ft. MicBarz, Noelle Chesnut

West coast emcee, Timothy Rhyme, is determined to inspire. As an indie artist, his life is no cake walk but he refuses to let anything control his perception. After fighting for his life, relocating to LA, going thru life’s ups and downs, and dealing with the music industry norms, this young star in the making has more than enough justification in looking at the glass as half empty. But he chooses to do the contrary.
Premiering on Timothy Rhyme’s single, “I Love My Life”, is a song that empowers while it entertains. Teaming up with Atlanta-based lyricist MicBarz and Los Angeles singer extrordinaire Noelle Chesnut, this song is something special just in time for the holidays. Dedicated to those that need a boost, this song speaks to anyone in a slump looking for some motivation.

Shoutout to our fam over at 8th Of Dope for this dope ass review!

It seems every time i turn around FD is conjuring up a new project & in a nutshell, turning heads. With that being said, 60 East brings you another heartfelt installment with his latest mixtape “Mood Muzik Volume one” dropping December 10th, 2013.
