Harlem’s Kyle Rapps released his debut mixtape, “SUB” this week (June 18th). Sponsored by streetbrand Miska and produced entirely by LA’s Belief, “SUB” features appearances by Action Bronson, Murs, MFN eXquire and The Inner City Kids’ Aaron Cohen and Spaceman. Check out the mixtape which the artist describes as “post-apocalypse boom bap shit.”
After weeks of promoting, emcee/producer duo Kyle Rapps & Diwon are pleased to finally present their TV-themed, free release Syndication. At 11 tracks, all songs are sampled using the television theme song of the corresponding track title. From Breaking Bad, Dexter and Portlandia, to The Twilight Zone, Addams Family and The Andy Griffith Show, Syndication adds a grimy ‘boom-trap’ spin to some of TV’s most celebrated syndications since the days of coat hanger antennas.
In promotion for Kyle Rapps and Diwon’s forthcoming TV themed mixtape Syndication, the emcee/producer duo deliver the project’s third and final leak, “Portlandia.” In keeping with the mixtape’s theme of flipping TV show samples, Diwon builds off the show’s theme song “Feel It All Around,” originally composed by Washed Out. “Portlandia” is just one of the many TV themed sample flips that you’ll find on Syndication, which drops October 17th, 2012, the same day that the duo is performing as part of a Scion sponsored CMJ showcase at The Paperbox (Brooklyn, NYC), along with Pro Era’s Capital Steez, Brandun Deshay, Aaron Cohen & The Inner City Kids, Rilgood, Maffew Ragazino and more.
On the heels of both their extolled remix for Lana Del Rey’s “Born To Die” and pastiched visual presentation of “Mr. Rogers” Neighborhood, emcee/producer duo Kyle Rapps & Diwon continue their repertoire of dementing TV show samples into a gritty Boom-Trap aesthetic, with their Breaking Bad inspired video of the same title. Donning the show’s trademark Hazmat suit and safety goggles, Rapps takes on the role of a swagged out Walter White. “Breaking Bad” is just one of the many TV themed sample flips that you’ll find on their forthcoming, duly titled mixtape, Syndication.
So as the business card pile collects dust and we all wonder where we were while ASAP Rocky got put in a “Vice Grip” and your car got towed in the $7 dollar public lot after 3 am, lets give you the last of the last SXSW articles. Maybe you went to the Fader Fort and hung out with the Bawss Rick Ross or kicked it with Nardwuar , saw Murs on the street, met Trash Talk, or wondered how the fuck anyone ever made it to Beauty Ballroom which was in the middle of nowhere Austin.
(why would you throw shows so far away?) Did you hit Pitchfork parties to see STRFKR ? Did you catch a dusty band playing for 20 people that was the next best thing?
Did you meet any cool ass guitarists on the street? Did you …
