Female$ Welcomed - Trinidad James

This is probably my favorite track from Trinidad and it always gets the crowd hype. James brings it back to his native island to show some love and drop a sick visual. I am telling yall James might be here to stay.

Lyriciss x PDP x FatTrel- DuffleBag (Faded) (produced by product8129)


Love to see this, hopefully this means bigger things for the DMV. We have been such a crab in a barrel area for hip hop its shameful. So to see cats linking up and doing some solid tracks together is the only way you will really see DMV on the map. No more solo 5 pc chicken nights we need Potlucks... we all trying to eat.

The DMV (DC/MD/VA) continues to show the industry it’s their time, and like most cities that are next up, they must unite first.
Production team Product8129 is helping The DMV do just that with their compilation project entitled We the DMV, which features original music from some of the DMV’s best emcees, including Fat Trel, Black Cobain, Slutty Boyz, Shy Glizzy, Lyriciss, Phil Da Phuture, RAtheMC, Mz. Sasha, Young Moe and more, produced by Product8129.

Jaden Smith – Hello (Video)

A$AP Rocky – Wild For The Night f. Skrillex & Birdy Nam Nam (Video)

This cat a is future Icon, Rocky is much more than music and you can see it in his presence. He drops solid tracks for both the radio and the interdweebs to bump too and gives quality visuals many artist out now clearly don't. This is a dope video, I try to compare artist videos to what I would of thought was epic as a kid and what I would imagine to be playing non stop on MTV. Rocky gives you this and main reason why you will see much more of the Harlem Kid.

But this performance is perfect example of how he still has a huge following, I've been to many concerts in my time and some season vets and better talent still do not get the showing this guy gets.

Pedico - Nixon Now (Video)

I have not posted an non Hip-Hop esque post in awhile but just coming back from SXSW my mind has opened back up to so much more genres. Being flooded by my love of Hip Hop that has been taken over because of the interweb and blog-sphere I don't get to explore what my mind and heart love, which is just Dope music. Growing up literally an MTV kid (props to having older siblings) my music taste has a big range so getting some dope punk music in my inbox made my day. You gotta love dope music and sick video to roll with it. 
Based out of NYC and representing New York localism, Pedico is 3 guys that are all about American punk rock. Breathing fresh air into surf-punk music. Focusing on raw energy and authenticity rather than overindulgent instrumental virtuosity and synthetic tomfoolery , they write songs about urban life, cheese, transvestites, bodysurfing, cheap beer, laundromats, red sports cars, being shirtless, bathroom parties, Martin Lawrence, Boone's Farm beverages, puking in the pool of the Courtyard Marriot, eating cheetos on the couch all day and babes babes babes! Pedico is the new punk rock.

Introducing Simple To Society Clothing : Get Familiar


Welcome Dats Dope family! I want to welcome you to a new dope clothing line that you will be noticing around a lot more. I am proud to have the Simple family grace the Dats Dope site and hope you all get hip and welcome them to the family. 

Influenced by the sneaker game, Hip-Hop music, art, fashion and the culture in the DMV [Washington, D.C., Maryland, Northern Virginia] area, Simple To Society, a home based clothing brand started almost a year ago, produces an "Around the way" feel to street wear. The DMV area, being such a prestigiously known community for sneaker heads, lets the brand add a positive message in their clothing, while adhering to the latest trends and coordinating highly ranked or any sneakers.

In February of 2012, two shoe-enthusiast founders came together to create something that went against what most other brands encouraged; Their main objective: to promoted a simple life. With both founders being born and growing up in the DMV area, they saw that where they came from is a world of its own. It is a region that is slowly becoming more recognized by other prominent areas in America. Just as the West Coast established their culture in fashion/art/music, these designers desired a way to established and help surface the positive culture buried in between, the North and South of the East Coast. Why spend hundreds of dollars on sneakers, and sporting all the popular brands to gain a social status, when you don’t have to pay to “Be Simple.”
Within a year, Andy Vo, and Arnel Gadia, were able to evoke the DMV community with limited quantities of tee’s displaying their representation of The DC flag, eye catching slogan designs, and their distinctive, yet so simple, logo. Gaining a rapid amount of admirers, and a fleet of supporters merely instantaneously. Selling out, almost immediately, of every collection, and a high demand for more production, these young men are just getting started.

Kendrick Lamar is Hottest MC in the Game : MTV


Many of you probably thought this was going be the first thing I posted when the news dropped the other day. But I had to let it marinate for awhile and let the rest of the blogsphere eat it up. I was waiting for the day to see K.Dot grace this list even though I don't believe in these List the media make, I know the value it is to the game and how artist need this. I am just shocked from going from no where close to that list my man jumps to NUMBER ONE!! But who would doubt it? Kendrick brought us some amazing work this year and showed to the world that we can still produce great music with still telling a story and getting a message out.

Even with good kid m.A.A.d city and hear from the beginning how this project been in the works. From early k.dot days you hear him talking about being the good kid. To see it actually come a live after so long, it felt like what he has been describing about for years.


K.Dot is our generations Messiah of the game, not just hip hop I am meaning he can slowly become big influence to our era, something we have not had since Pac. Kendrick is doing this on a whole another level than many artist, him and the rest of TDE actually. Many of us wont realize the impact they have until later but just keep watching.

I am super hyped to have seen him grow as an artist and make it here. My man has truly made it and has his foot in the game. I can say I am proud that his music made it to the masses and can't wait to see what he has cooked up next.

K.Dot once said he doesn't want to be messiah of rap but clearly he has reached that goal, he won our hearts first so now its time to get that Grammy.
