Blaksmith X Mister X Dr. B = Passalacqua

I know all my hip hop heads will love me for this one

The Blaksmith, of Cold Men Young, has been in the lab working on the amazingness known as Passalacqua (not sure how to pronounce it) but its dope. Its a collaborative effort between Mister, Blaksmith and the production done by Dr. B. Musically and creatively, this Ep is amazing, it has a smooth, soulful, jazz feel but its pure hip hop!! The production is amazing. The sound is definitely different but it can be appreciated. If you are a fan of music you will love it. Lyrically its on another level.

To call it great would be an understatement. This 6 track EP will have listener itching for more. Blak's and Mister's voices utilize the beats in such a melodic way and the chemistry is amazing. We can all appreciate classic, timeless music that people of all ages can relate to, though its only 6 tracks its something to be said when 6 tracks can be this powerful, its definitely worth a download. I can continue to analyze it, but that would take all day

Don't just take my word for it, check it out, get your daily fix of dope and download it here, donate a lil something to the continued creation of great music:

Here's A Sample Saturday Joint...

It's that time folks & fellow IV heads... dopeness for your ears. I call this "Sample Saturday" because this track offers a sample of another dope song. Warner Brother's XtotheV lays some verses that a music fan can appreciate on this track titled, "Smallville". This Kansas rapper (yeah, I said Kansas) has been around for a good while and is still creating a nice little buzz for himself. This track is produced by Mr. J Cole and is pretty damn fly with a nice little sample of "To Forgive" by Smashing Pumpkins (a favorite of mine). I can rock to it. Hopefully you can too. Ride to it & tell me you don't feel it.

Keep him on the radar.

I Suppose It Would Make Sense....

To introduce myself.

Neo inspired a good point. None of you know exactly who we are. But I promise that after a few posts, you will get a really good idea. So as a brief introduction, my name is Danielle & IV is greatness (just throwing that out there). And along with the other new additions to the IV family, I plan on bringing a little more love & hugs to this blog... as well as doses of the extra dope. I'm excited to be a part of such creative genius. Look out for great music, fashion, art and all around awesomeness for the inner fly, nerd and/or artistic being... in you. <3

And by the way... I'm the cream filling of the Oreo in the picture. Watch our moves... #TeamIV

iV x Neo = Win

What's up everyone?

I figured I should take a little time out to introduce myself, since anyone that may be reading this blog, or who follows all the latest with iV, may not know exactly who I am. My name is Neo, and I was asked here by JP and Big O to help breathe some life and freshness back into this blog.

The doctor is IN ...

Okay, that was probably a little corny, and you'll probably get a lot of that with me around. You should also expect to see a lot of dope Asian stuff, dope artwork, dope people all with the Neo twist. I actually feel extremely flattered to be able to write alongside such a talented bunch of people. It's a bit of "positive" pressure for me to keep this thing up, but I am looking forward to cranking out some dope articles for you all.

In the meantime ... if you aren't following me on Twitter, please do so @theneolution, just a shameless self-plug.
