shot of the day- lady gaga

hair- lady gaga

now i'm not one to go googoo for gaga's puffs, but i just downloaded lady gagas new album "born this way" off amazon for effin .99 cent. yep. ninety-nine pennies. why not, right?

anyway, after giving this piece a quick spin, i've picked out my fav to share to you guys. its called "hair" and its a bit different than the rest of the songs, although its def the typical lady gaga track. pretty much the complete opposite idea of india arie's song "i am not my hair" but whatever. i can dig it.

yep. i just had to get the ass shot. with the fucking fantastic unicorn blue jean jacket.

shot of the day- wizard khalifa

phone numbers- wizard khalifa

isn't wiz khalifa's name awesome.

anyway, i haven't really been a fan since his gay ass video for "roll up" (i've never heard a creepier giggle in my life! btw, no offense to the gay ass people out there- much love) but a friend told me that his mixtape "cabin fever" was pretty tight, so i gave it a spin. i must admit, the beats are hot, but the lyrics were kinda....bleh bleh bleh money bleh bleh hoes bleh bleh weed bleh more weed bleh bleh hoes.

yea yea yea, your dating a bad bitch, and your talyor'd gang encompasses all of the loner stoners on the planet, but please wiz, rap about some other shit. anyways, the clever simplicity of "phone numbers" def caught my ear. by far my fav on the mixtape (which you can download on datpiff.com for free.99).


shot of the day-lykke li

i follow rivers- lykke li

its as if lykke li traveled to some far away land, got her inspiration from some aborigines people, came back and then produced some hot shit. for those who have not coped lykke li's "wounded rhymes" album, summed up in a nut shell, its pretty much a compilation of music with ethnic beats, ridiculous lyrics and couple ballads to balance the heavy bass and drums that bring her collection of very different music together effin beautifully. one of my favs (that i'm sure will be yours once you give it a quick listen) is "i follow rivers"

the bitch is psycho. love it!

on another note: i'm back and at it. life has been crazy crazy crazy, but i've promised to write way more frequently. keep the emails and shout outs coming and i'll continue to expand yallllllls mindz with the music that moves my soul. let get wasted on music together! r u still down?

shot of the day- theophilus london

my recent obsession- theophilus london. theres something about musicians who have the ability to straddle the fence between hip hop and everything else, and theophilus london does that for me. his mixtapes are cool, and i've really been enjoying his video for "flying overseas." now, according the subtitle credits solange is in thee background. still don't know how i feel about her, but eh to her being on the track. 


flying overseas

shot of the day- kid sister

i recently coped kid sister's old album "ultraviolet" and i'm feeling it. its pretty much house music with a real fun and ghetto feel to it. if you're into that kind of shit, then you should definitely give the album a listen. my song on there right now is "you ain't really down" (a remake of some song from the 80's). luv it!

you ain't really down- kid sister

***create your own shock-tail***

soooooo riding in my car home, listening to ski beatz "24 hour karate school" i felt compelled to devise my own genius rap over one of his bannnngin instrumentals. of course it sounds like elementary crap, but i thought it'd be a great idea to host a contest to see who could come up with the best flow over this hot ass beat....

with that said, heres the plan: submit your song using the ski beatz "taxi" song (located below) and i'll post the ones that i think are hot.

the person with the hottest flow over the beat wins a special prize! (boaw)

don't have the beat download? hit me up and i'll share :)

shot of the day- cee-lo green

bodies- cee-lo.

love this song. very sexy. beat is on point. simply fucking fantastic.

shot of the day- adele

adele's new album "21" is scheduled out here in the states late next month, but i've been able to get it through my special sources *looks around sketchingly*...

anyway - my new shit is called "set fire to the rain." she has a fucking awesome voice. *insert swiss beats voice- "you know that shit is, fucking ridiculous!*

listen peoples!
adele- "set fire to the rain"

on another note- sorry for my brief absence. work has been really crazy lately, thus the lack of posting. i have, on the other hand, been listening to tonssss of music. if u cant wait for me to post, and ur interested in what i'm listening to for the day, just hit me up- littleflamingcocktail@gmail.com. i'll put you on.....

lfc freshmen class of 2011

so xxl has been coming out with their "freshmen" list of the year, which is basically predictions of who theu think will blow up in the following year. They've been pretty much dead on with their picks (last year it was kid cudi, b.o.b, wale and a few others.) i thought it'd be cool to give my freshmen list of 2011. its pretty short since i went through an intense alternative binge last year, but there were a few rappers that got my attention.

j. cole

this guy is pretty hot. i know there was a big hoo-ha over this guy when he came out with the "all i want is you" song, but to be honest with you, i didn't really join the bandwagon until the "friday night lights" mixtape came out. if you don't have it, get it. he has a combo of talent that most of these underground rappers don't really posses until they blow up, and thats an equal mix of lyrics and beats. if u have the mixtape, u know what i mean. anyway, i'm positive that this guy won't just be a one hit wonder.

mac miller
this guys is hot. i think the crazy thing about him is that he's sooo young. i actually felt alittle uncomfortable listening to his lyrics about skipping school for senior skip day, as it brought back those funny feelings of high school, but i got over that quickly when i actually realized how talented he was. with a name like mac miller i expected a big burly black guy, but he's actually a skinny jewish white guy. crazy, huh. i love it because it just goes to show that hip hop truly is transcending race, age, religion, and all of that other segregated shit. 

another image dispeller. he's the shit. i realized this when i listened to big boi's "ain't no dj" 12 times trying to figure out who the guy on the last verse was. his mixtape "trunk muzik" is pretty hot.

big k.r.i.t
i looooove this guy. i recently download his mixtape "krit wuz here" and was in for a pleasant surprise. soo i'm positive that i've heard his voice before on tons of songs prior to actually knowing who he is, but i still can't put my finger on who's shit i've heard him on before. anyways, i love his voice. his beats are fly. he's the shit.

kendrick lamar

i believe that 2011 will be the year of the west coast. it was fun, atlanta, but its time to pass the torch. kendrick lamar will be the one to lead the west coast pack, and i honestly can't wait til he blows up. i've been bumpin this guys music for the past couple months, and i grow more in love with this guys music everytime i listen to a song mostly because kendrick is the most relatable rapper out right now. i've shared a few songs of his with you guys already, but here's another. pretty much my mantra for 2011-

"cut u off"- kendrick lamar
