One of Los Angeles’ emerging beatsmiths, Drewbyrd–who has rocked parties thrown by The Fader and produced beats for dudes like Dom Kennedy–has just dropped his mixtape Show and Tell, which is really quite ill. Drew–like myself– is Bay Area born but finds the L.A. sunshine more conducive to creative work so I take hella pride in recommending you nab Show and Tell.
The old geezers behind the mahogany desks at the cob-webbed old record labels are surely dumbfounded by a few things regarding Wale:
The cooler-than-thou boutiques on Fairfax fall to their knees and jam as many $50 t-shirts into a bag as they can, while making their interns (what kind of retail store has interns) mop the saliva which pours from their mouths. AND HE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE AN ALBUM OUT YET.
He’s designed a highly sought-after New Era Cap (I’m selling one here). AND HE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE AN ALBUM OUT YET.
Wale is now dropping his 3rd free mixtape, yet he’s already graced magazine covers and feature stories in pubs like URB, XXL and The Fader. AND HE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE AN ALBUM OUT YET.
AND HE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE AN ALBUM OUT YET.
Here is mixtape part three, The Road to Attention: Deficit Mixtape with his fourth right around the corner.
