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!

Volume 5 is released despite things heating up down in Chicago and Miami. The DKA Life will be squeezing the work in between medical classes from now on, while The Vivid Underground is busy earning those dead presidents. This Playlistings edition has got a bit of everything; reggae, remixes, R with-a-little-bit-of-B, radio destined rips, and some regular ol’ ridiculous rap bangers.

Playlistings Volume 4 has dropped. The cover design I might add; has been in development from the start of Playlistings (back in June). Literally getting tweaks every night accompanied by my Vitamin Water infused concoctions. Not really, that’s gross, but seriously.

While 50 Cent does NOT make an appearance on this mixtape, you’ll get your recommended daily dosage of Vitamin OG.  We’ve got some sophomore leaks, some tunes from the veterans getting the itch, and some fresh squeezed Underground jams. This is one you don’t want to miss. Click that download link above; Mom always said to take your vitamins.

Lil Wayne – Right Above It (feat. Drake)
Bei Maejor – Drinks On Me (feat. Trey Songz)
Wale – Black N Gold
Kanye West – See Me Now (feat. Beyonce & Charlie Wilson)

Playlistings: An Introduction

Posted in Graphic Design, Music, Playlistings with tags , , , , , , on July 19, 2010 by bendey14

With great delight, I’d like to introduce a new collaborative project through the world of music and graphic design titled, “Playlistings.”

The Vivid Underground has recently linked up with The DKA Life to bring you a constant flow of brand new hip-hop music combined with all-original “mixtape” covers as often as we can.  The music is certified fresh and hand-picked straight from the vines around the interweb each day.  The Playlistings mixtapes will be a shared release through both blogs for now, but we are actively looking for additional blogs to help market/feature the downloads. Who knows, maybe even an exclusive website someday?

THINGS TO EXPECT:

-Brand new hip-hop music from today’s hottest artists, as well as selected up-and-coming artists.

-Easy download of .ZIP file that includes mp3 files, track listing, and original cover artwork. Virus-free of course.

-Releases hopefully every two weeks, but realistically expect at least 1 every month.

THINGS TO BE AWARE OF:

-All music is legal to download (to our knowledge) via free artist mixtapes/official leaked tracks.

-All artwork is being released under a Creative Commons License (Attribution-Noncommercial-NoDerivs).

-All music is individually available after a simple Google search. We’re just making it easy to share our favorite music with ya’ll and having fun doing it.

*Stay tuned for the 1st release later this evening.*
