Mixtape: Best of Phonte (of Little Brother)

Posted by Bonesy | Posted in | Posted on 1:21 PM

Phonte is one of the first highly opinionated emcees to definitively capture the ear of the Hip Hop community and beyond since the days of KRS-One and Chuck D. We fell in love with his humor and wittiness on The Listening, anticipated his colorful social commentary on Gordon Gartrell Radio w/DJ Brainchild and even checked for his critique of the latest films with Movies in a Minute. Yet, the North Carolinian never ceased to deliver punchlines and knockout verses with numerous collaborators over the years while simultaneously establishing himself as a singer as The Foreign Exchange reinvented their sound. Although more entertainment than edutainment, the loquacious emcee has our ears successfully on lock and we hope he's never at a loss for words. Disclaimer:This is not a "Phonte's most fire guest verses mix", but a mix of DJ Rahdu's favorite Phonte collaborations. Enjoy!

On The Come Up.. Chance The Rapper

Posted by Bonesy | Posted in | Posted on 7:15 PM


The latest artist to come out of the chi-town resurgence is one that you should pay close attention to. We included his track ‘Long Time’ in our April Playlist, but here at dont.sleeppp we still feel there is some light to be shed on the MC/Producer. Check out some of his stand out tracks below- and I have a feeling you’ll be hearing a lot more from Chance in 2012.

Childish Gambino- Don't Like Me (Feat. Chance The Rapper) (Prod. Skywlkr)


U Got Me Fucked Up (Prod. Chuck Inglish [of The Cool Kids])


Prom Night (Prod. DJ SuchNSuch)

KOTD: Turning everything up!

Posted by Dontsleeppp | Posted in , | Posted on 8:36 AM


I started watching Grind Time addictively years back on youtube and then was tuned into all the other hype style battle labels like URL, SMACK, and KOTD. Recently all other scenes have crashed and burned, but with people like Drect himself grasping for his throne. King Of The Dot has now went from a home grown brand into a international sensation in less then a 12 month time span. They deserve alot of recognition for the ability to stablize an unchartered industry like battle rapping and make it a revolutionary occurance.

June Playlist by Don't Sleeppp

Another 2hours of goodness..

SpaceGhostPurrp- Mysterious Phonk

Posted by Bonesy | Posted in | Posted on 6:54 PM



SGP has been making waves for a couple years now. Most will be familiar with him from his production with A$AP Rocky, Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, etc. His new album which dropped earlier in the month has a zoned out vibe similar to old Three Six Mafia or Gravediggaz, with a dark sound surprisingly coming straight outta Miami.
Check out some highlights below:

Bringing The Phonk


Grind On Me


Don't Give A Damn



Side note: Similar to major label artists, his music is blocked from Soundloud (and I couldn't include in the June playlist), but I still felt like he needed some spotlight. This may have something to do with him surprisingly signing with label 4AD, known for it's alternative artists such as Bon Iver and Iron & Wine..one of these things is not like the other.

Merge One is a DS affiliate and long time Toronto battle rapper turned emcee. Now moving forward into Nova, who is a highly under rated female emcee from Toronto, Canada and we see shining out there time to time. So why not give it some reconginition..As for Caliph, he has been grinding as an emcee from out of the GTA and has seemlessly dropped a continuous variety of leaks from his up coming projects.

Jam Packed month.. early! (Freeway voice)

Action Bronson x Party Supplies; Blue Chips!

Posted by Dontsleeppp | Posted on 10:40 PM


Killer samples provided by the kid Party Supplies and Bronson with perfect format. Bronson has good concepts and story telling ability, but he was boring me. I think it was his lack of dimensional sound and that's why I'm glad to hear these solid tracks made by the duo.

HarryFraud by dontsleeppp

This up and coming NY producer has been getting alot of press lately and he deserves it. If you see 'Harry Fraud' on a tracklist it's usually going to be heat. Threw this playlist together of tracks he's produced for anyone still sleeping on French Montana's right hand man.

Posted by Bonesy | Posted in | Posted on 3:33 PM


The North Carolina MC dropped this one today and it's dope. Really feeling the zoned out production, ASAP Rocky fans will probably dig it too. Check out some of the standouts below, or preview the whole thing on his Bandcamp where you can pay whatever you want for it.

January Playlist by dontsleeppp_jan

A couple days early before another busy week #grinding.

Homeboy Sandman- Canned Goods

Posted by Bonesy | Posted in | Posted on 10:15 PM


I couldn't include this in the January playlist because apparently Stones Throw block their artists from Soundcloud. Either way, this track is classic Sandman, a creative topic with an underlying message. Taken from his new EP, Subject: Matter out now.



Produced by The Audible Doctor.

Album Spotlight: yU- The Earn

Posted by Bonesy | Posted in | Posted on 1:46 PM


This was probably the album from 2011 that I played the most. I didn't know much about yU other than that he was in the group the Diamond District, who dropped an album (In The Ruff) about two years ago which I played quite a bit. This album is knocking all the way through, with a variety of topics on deck and dusty beats. yU also sequenced the album real well with skits and interludes which I never end up skipping on a full listen (unlike most albums). Check out some of the tracks below, but make sure to peep the album in it's entirety for full appreciation.

If U Down (Prod. Slimkat 87 & Drew Kid)


Write On (Prod. Usef Dinero)


Blind (Prod. Kev Brown)
