Last year, The Weed Tape was dropped and Trent Taylor hasn’t stopped since. He’s teamed up with Elijah Kilo for a 6-track EP, and is going strong with his Weed Tape series. The third installment, Rejects, goes against what one would think by its title.
The tape has a groovy and lax vibe laid over like a filter, but digging deeper into the tracks you get a bunch of different styles. Time Blunt of Hour features head-bobbing rhythmic stuttering in the sample. The watery rifts of The Hu$tle puts folks in a drifting daze. Characteristic sampling and other soundbits are entertaining. The variance between the instrumental styles is magnetic.
Throughout the album there are parts to chill to, and parts to jam to. And the timing between tracks along with the transitions and interludes are sweet; exquisite even, flowing like silk. I’ve been enjoying this for a few weeks, so I had to pass it on. Here’s a 19-track gift for ya’ll, use it as the soundtrack to your day.
SO ICEY BOY
The “Nike Boy” music video is a conscious shaking bewildering piece that deserves the upmost merit. E.U and Unkle Luc create something that is characterized by E.U’s persona and mimics the aura of the song.
Madagascar coming soon.
Ill Doots’ Sly Tompson has something for your ears. Wonka Beats is a collection of instrumentals deftly built with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory samples alone, to the point to where you wouldn’t even realize the limitation (if you want to call it that). With these tracks, a challenge is issued. The Wonka Wednesdays series where “every rapper with a set of balls is expected to go the f** in”.
I couldn’t have said it better myself.

A collection of instrumentals. No, more than that. This production speaks to you from dgh’s soul. If one had to describe it, they’d probably say its “hip-hop glazed with techno-funk”. The dghsport spring collection introduces you to an entirely new type of sound, that despite its peculiarity, is easily welcome to new ears. The sounds are so spacious and crisp. This is mixed to perfection. I’ve always enjoyed music from this dude.
A bunch of laid-back, well-paced, head-nodding riddims to enjoy. “The Weed Tape” is graceful in an upbeat sort of way. Taylor’s unique style stands out with its ubiquitous voice samples and scratches laced into something super soulful. This composition is ambiguously fits as an easy-listening album, semi-chill jams, or something that inspires one to spit over it.
Kisai crafts a hefty load of awesome RPG-sampling instrumentals. This tape contains some of the most head-bobbinest, shoulder-shakinest beats. Kisai has an a unique style of making beats that makes him stand out from all other producers that I’ve heard. Let me shut up though, you’ve got a lot of listening to do.
Producers deserve shine too! These are the most balla beats I’ve compiled over the past couple months or so. I jam these out my headphones, speakers, extravagant sound system, etc. You gotta listen to these.
Oh lawwd. Got that jazzy sax up in there, catchy whistling tune, jamming drums.. I’m loving this. It’s like da perfect combination of smooth and upbeat.
Yeah. This joint will make you wanna dance, boy. Them thick strings that give you the feeling of floating away are gorgeous (hence the name and picture I suppose). The “by faith” voice and that rap sample was just sprinkled into the beat at the right time. I can easily just sit around bobbin my head to this joint for hours.
Oh… goodness. Man this beat is great. It’s inspiring. Addictive. The whole beat has this funky and soulful sound, stylistic of the “Grand Chill Producer”. A little oriental swag to it to, whether intentional or not. Plus those light cymbals on the drop make me swoon.
This joint is gradiose, fervent, passionate, yet… ignant. It’s like glorifying entrance music. The glistening synths combined with that power moaning organ just makes you walk up in da room like.
This some ol ethereal eurhythmic something else that starts with “e” type of music. Reminds me of Raider Klan and Clams Casino production. Just real glitzy and spacial, but still something you can bounce to.
So yeah, enjoy that, and if you haven’t had enough, peep this sneak peek of Kisai the Spooniest Bard’s new beat tape. Dude did some glorious work for some of the best hip-hop this year (FXCK2), so this is doing YOU a favor. Ya feel me? SpoonyRPG
