Xaphoon Jones: Nobody’s In Love (RMX)

Xaphoon Jones comes through again, this time with a remix of 2AM Club’s Nobody’s In Love. Xaphoon, one half of the rising duo Chiddy Bang, fortunately finds time to make these remixes while still producing beats for his duo’s vocalist, Chiddy. This is a fun remix, good for the warm weather that’s on its way in.

Johnny Polygon: Kids Broken Hearted & To You…

Last week I made a post with some of Johnny Polygon’s music, but the tracks that I included in the post were a random selection from his mixtape. Now, after playing through the mixtape multiple times, I decided to post up two of the songs that have really grown on me over the past couple weeks.

Download: Johnny Polygon – Kids Broken Hearted

Download: Johnny Polygon – To You…

A Few New Artists

Recently I’ve been hearing projects from some up-and-coming artists and I figured I would put some of their music up and let you be the judge of their skills. The new artists being introduced in this post are: Machine Gun Kelly, Johnny Polygon, and Childish Gambino.

Machine Gun Kelly – He has a pretty distinct voice and fast flow. Fun fact: He was the first rapper to ever win Amateur Night at the Apollo.

Machine Gun Kelly: | 100 Words and Running | Leave Me Alone ft. Rock City |

Also, check out a video of his HERE.
Johnny Polygon – Johnny is signed to DJ Green Lantern and his Future Green Entertainment label. Fun fact: He started off as a breakdancer/B-Boy before he got into rapping.

Johnny Polygon: | The Riot Song | Get Right ft. Amanda Diva |
Childish Gambino – A fellow Usain reader told me about this one, he has a lot of clever wordplay and a very distinct voice. Fun fact: Childish Gambino, real name Donald Glover, is a writer from 30 Rock and Mystery Team as well as a comedian from UCB.

Childish Gambino: | Yes | Starlight ft. DC Pierson and Amber Petty |

If you enjoyed some of the songs posted above, here are the links to their mixtapes. Also, you can click the artists’ names above to visit their websites.
