I’ve said it many times before:

Black Stilletos and The Pantalones present: The Spring Tracklist

This is a mix of tracks, curated by Margarita and myself, for your listening pleasure. We tried to stay pretty far away from your usual radio hip-hop bullshit and give you something a little more real. You’ll find some tracks familiar and some not so familiar, but regardless of the notoriety, these are tracks that make us feel good. Get this tape going and crack a cold one, freestyle in the mirror, throw your illest b-boy stance, lay in the grass, bump it in your car, or do whatever the hell you want. Just make sure you enjoy it.

  • Intro
  • Lynguistics | Cunninlynguists
  • RewindRhyme | Gorilla Warfare Tactics

If this wasn’t a menswear blog, it would be a Macklemore appreciation blog.

Video for the new track from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Sunshine - Mos Def

One of the greatest.

Made it go without a brand new car/
Made it fresh without a brand new song/
And give a fuck about what brand you are/
I’m concerned what type of man you are/

Hollywood Shampoo - Champagne Champagne

Saw these guys open for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Champagne Champagne = Funky dudes from Seattle that absolutely kill it.

Sunshine - Atmosphere

It’s a beautiful Sunday. I had to.

This makes me happy, no matter the situation.

Cold War (Instrumental) [Lil B] - Clams Casino

The extremely talented producer and New Jersey native Clams Casino just released a full mastered version of his acclaimed mix-tape Instrumentals. I love this track, but there are so many great beats here, download it.

Make The Money - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Saw these two perform last night at The Bowery Ballroom, and I can confidently say it was the best show I have ever seen. They opened up with this track and carried the energy for the entirety of the night. Macklemore is not to be compared to Mac Miller, Sammy Adams, or any of those frat-rap weed rappers. He is, in my opinion, one of the most sincere, creative, and talented artists and lyricists currently producing music. He’s a game changer and extremely inspiring. It also doesn’t hurt that Ryan Lewis kills every beat he produces.

He dropped a couple new tracks last night, and I cannot wait for the newest album.

Work - Gang Starr

One of my favorite tracks from one of the greatest duos in hip-hop history. Premiere creates the nastiest beats, and Guru has such an unmistakable flow. This is real hip-hop.

December 1, 2011

Last night was absolutely insane. Grieves and BudoK Flay, and XV played a show at my school, and I got to take some awesome pictures. I was allowed to go in during soundcheck and chill with everyone. I ended up giving Grieves, Budo and XV some of the shirts that I design and sell, and Grieves ended up rocking one during the show.

We also got to chill with and interview XV, and I have to say I want to see this dude make it big. He was an extremely cool and sincere guy, and some of his stories were insane. He even gave Keith his personal number, so we can get in touch with him about the interview and photographs. The interview will be up at my friend’s music blog 201 Beats (it’s an amazing blog, check it out) relatively soon, so look out for it.

I’m so glad I got to take these pictures, and I will definitely never forget this night.
