#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.

#MixtapeMonday Scoe - The Influence

I am actually somewhat friends with Scoe and have been long waiting this project to be released. He had told me a couple of the producers that he had worked with on the project and I couldn’t believe he sat on those jams for this long. We actually had this conversation smoking a blunt outside of Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles on Pico right before we dropped him off at the studio. Scoe is a real cool,humble person and he has been workingm and im sure this project will show that!

DJBooth.Net – ” The project packs a total of 17 original jams from the veteran emcee, among them reader-approved singles “Sunset Strip,” “End of Summer,” “Thank You,” “They Ain’t Ready” and “The Crown.” Kendrick Lamar and Xzibit make guest appearances on Tha Influence, which packs production from Best Kept Secret, Bink Dawg, Charlie Red 3000, Fingazz, Hi-Tek, Jahlil Beats, Jake One, Just Blaze, Mike WiLL Made It, Nottz, Statik Selektah and Tone Mason.”
