Game – Ain’t No Doubt About It (Ft. Timberlake & Pharrell). Download HERE.

This song’s like GQ mingling with XXL Magazine.

It’s like SoHo hanging out with the Bronx.

The equivalent of ordering foie grois with your country fried steak.

Alright, alright. You get it. This track is the first single off of Game’s The R.E.D. Album.

You should know this by now.

The Kid Daytona – Fly Shit (Video).

We made a mistake.

We’ve been talking about The Kid Daytona for a little while now … and we never gave you a real look into the artist’s background. So, here we go.

The Kid Daytona doesn’t exactly hail from the favorite destination of trashy spring breakers and leather-clad bikers. Actually, he’s from the Bronx.

While he was fortunate enough to attend a Catholic school in the South Bronx, the artist says it was a “catholic school in the ‘hood.” Meaning that he’s had his fair share of mishaps and run-ins.

… My boy’s mom used to be working, and we’d go in his crib and do all sorts of crazy shit. You ever seen that movie Kids? Imagine being like sixteen years old.

Know how artists seem to grow up together?

Try this on for size: Daytona often battled one of Young Money’s newest editions, Jae Millz, back in high school.

Now, the artist finds himself signed to Jackmove Inc. and making moves, much like the video above.

You can expect a lot of playful verses with funky sounds from The Kid Daytona. If there has ever been an artist that made a point of “doing his own thing,” stay with this guy.

Not only is he taking the roads less traveled, but he’s creating new ones.

Also, we’re always appreciative of an artist who knows how to dress. Thank you, Kid, for not being another rapper bludgeoning us with tacky combinations of high-end labels (like THIS guy).

Learn from our mistake and don’t pass up on The Kid Daytona! Download the mixtape that arguably brought the artist to fame, A Tribe Called Fresh, HERE.

Get Your Factz Straight.

Here’s something we’ve noticed lately: hip hop is getting smarter.

On a very related note – there’s a face by the name of Mickey Factz who’s on the up and up.

Born in the Bronx, Mickey Factz left behind a job as a paralegal to become “a starving artist.” However, he doesn’t have too much to worry about. It looks like he’s going to have plenty of food on his table as he has been nominated for the Buzz Factor at the Underground Music Awards.

Mickey Factz has actually been creating and distributing free mix tapes since 2006 (each of which have been critically acclaimed, by the way). His style, you ask?

I’d like to think I’m everything that Afrika Bambaataa would’ve envisioned hip-hop to be in 2008, 2016, 2030.

According to Kanye West, you can’t make it big unless you’ve got the style to match. See, that’s not really going to be a problem for Mickey Factz.  Claiming that the artist needs to be “looked at, gawked at,” Factz can be caught sporting raw denim from Rag & Bone, a Rocksmith Tokyo leather bomber, Prada specs and a pair of Supras.
