New Website!

Hey errbody! As I mentioned in a recent post, I have been at this blog thing for a little over a year. Last month I thought it was about time to make it an official website so I created:

http://catchyhiphop.com 

I will no longer be updating catchyhiphop.wordpress.com so hollaachaboi at the new site (which is identical to this one so you’ll feel right at home!)

Ghettosocks – Role Models

I know I just posted a Ghettosocks song but I had to do this one for a Friday because it give me the chills. It is a real feel good track and how can that not be considered catchy!?

SonReal – Blast Off

I’m liking this one because 1) has some awesome fast-rapping and 2) the words are really important to the beat. I mean, that is one of the main reasons I love rap so much because it works as a beat itself.

Unknown Prophets – Fresh ft. New MC and Alicia Steele

Seeing as we had a heat wave here yesterday in Minneapolis, this song seems appropriate. I might be a little biased since this whole song is pretty much about the town I live in, but I think this is just straight up feel-good. Lot of good vibes emanating from this track.

Elevated – Write It Down In Blood

This is one of my favorites that I’ve posted in awhile. The beat is totally dope and this dude has awesome lines. This will probably go up there in my top 10 favorite rap lines I’ve ever heard: “I could be the second coming but I ain’t dyin’ for your sins / I got crucified for my own and no one gave a shit”. That just blows me away because it so succinctly encapsulates a lot of my own personal beliefs (I’m speaking more to the second line obviously). Shiiiiiiittttt, I gotta start rapping.

Vegas Aces – Boomtown Shuffle

Australian hip hop for the win. Maybe it is just me but there seems to be a distinctive sound to a lot of Aussie hip hop: kind of bluesy guitar beats maybe? I’m not quite sure how to define it. Can anyone do better than me on this?

Ghettosocks – Out For Treats

This dude is becoming one of my favorites real quick. His rapping and rhymes are real smooth and he doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously. In fact, one of my personal favorites on this blog is a song featuring Ghettosocks and it is mainly because of his verse:

CHH is all about that fun ish. Definitely more Ghettosocks to come soon!
