DOWNLOAD MIXTAPE

I’m overcome with great sadness to announce that this will be the final Playlistings mixtape to release. Some of you may have noticed that past links have been removed by the RIAA because of copyright infringements. Although the VivdUnderground and the DKALife attempt to bring you each day’s newest worry-free tracks that circumnavigate the globe within seconds each day in a legal manner, we can’t guarantee that each track doesn’t slip through the cracks and somehow inevitably prevents a multi-millionaire from making that down payment on a Bentley covered in gold. Despite coming under fire from an organization that reminds me of the last few hours of a horrible episode of diarrhea (the aforementioned R.I.A.A. for the slow kids in class); Playlistings Volume 10 drops in a very pissed off fashion. Eat it up world, because apparently T-Pain has another BIG ASS CHAIN to buy.

The AWESOME tracklist emerges from the pile of shit surrounding your boy here, nothing new.

DOWNLOAD THE WORLD’S GREATEST F’N THING RIGHT NOW

It was only a few days ago that the rookie class was introduced to the Vivid/DKALife/hip-hop sector and it’s been nothing but G.O.O.D. music ever since. Kanye, XV, and Detroit’s very own Big Sean lock up the majority of the slots on this one. My two favorite cities in the world know how to rip airwaves to shreds. Chicago, Detroit, and hell, why not…Kansas City has earned it’s place on the map with XV’s “Vizzy Zone” mixtape coming out late last week. You’re about to get dialed in on this one!

Cleveland’s Kid Cudi

Posted in Artwork, Graphic Design, Print, Typography with tags , , , , , , , on April 3, 2009 by bendey14

cudi

With all the attention my last piece was getting (Drake), I figured I’d sit down for an hour or two and put together another one fueled by the sounds and words that move me.

If ya’ll don’t know who Kid Cudi is, it’s about time you familiarized yourself.  His mixtape, A Kid Named Cudi, is unbelievable.  Straight out of Cleveland, Cudi was recently all over Kanye West’s 808’s & Heartbreak release, and you may recognize his hit, “Day ‘N’ Nite”.  His sound is unlike anything I’ve ever heard before, and after spending most of the fall and winter with Cudi lyrics literally writing the story of my life, I had to give props where props is due.

This piece is about his song, “The Prayer”.  It’s not a really popular song, but I found it got me through some pretty tough times during the coldest winter.  Give it a listen.

Here’s what you’ve been patiently waiting for:
