It’s a long weekend for people in Canada! So I hope everyone is enjoying their day off, and for the international readers of Room-Noise, here are some mash-ups to enjoy.
Missed me? Probably not. Here’s what I’ve been listening to in the last little while:
I’ve never been a huge fan of Lloyd Banks, but throw Kanye, Swizz Beats, and Fabolous on the track and I’ll listen on repeat. From Banks’ “Hunger For More 2” here is “Start It Up”
2011 is also supposed to be the year Lupe Fiasco will finally release his much anticipated “LASERS.” After much delay and arguments with his label over three disc venture LupE.N.D. which was supposed to come out way back in 2009, Lupe spent time recording music for Twilight, formed a collabo group called “All City Chess Club” including Asher Roth, B.o.B., The Cool Kids, Charles Hamilton, Blu, Diggy Simmons, Wale, J. Cole, & Dosage, and even a rock band called “Japanese Cartoon.” First notable effort from LASERS is “The Show Goes On” which samples Modest Mouse’ “Float On:”
If you haven’t heard “Black and Yellow” by Wiz Khalifa yet, don’t do it. Your friends will love you for not repeating the lines over and over. Here is an earlier track by Wiz titled “Ink My Whole Body”
Finally, two artists who you’ll hear more about this year. J.Cole has been generating much hype with some help from Jay-Z as well as features on Wale’s “Attention Deficit” and collabos with big names like No I.D. and Pharell. His latest mixtape “Friday Night Lights” can be found here.
This is also going to be the year Theophilus London will finally release a full length album. “Flying Overseas” is going to come out sometime in late 2011, but London already released the video for his first single, featuring Devonte Hynes and the other Knowles sister.

There are quite of bit of reoccurring DJ’s who make it onto the hot list on music blog aggregators, and for that reason it’s because of their skills to turn a song into something even better and one of them is DJ Kue. I first discovered DJ Kue through a Calvin Harris remix he did of Flashblack, and from then on I kept on checking his SoundCloud page for more of his latest remixes. So for those who haven’t heard about DJ Kue, check out the tracks below, because it won’t disappoint you.

The last time I watched BET, 50 Cent was trying to bet Kanye that his album will do better on opening day. What happened to that guy anyway? Something worth checking out for a change though, were this year’s cyphers, televised at the BET hip-hop awards. Last year’s, featuring the likes of Wale, Nicki Minaj, and Black Thought, were a good indication of who was up and coming, as well as bringing back some classics like Mos Def and Eminem. This year’s cyphers continued in the same way. And I’ll be fully biased and say the G.O.O.D. music one was the best. Though Rev Run and Ice Cube (anyone still take Ice seriously though?) killed theirs, apparently Kanye and Common were the only one who actually freestyled their parts, and Big Sean’s verse was just too smooth.
And here I promised myself I wouldn’t write about Kanye anymore…
