V Playlist: Maxwell, Dyme-A-Duzin, DJ Muggs x Danny Brown, And More


/ January 8, 2013

VIBE’s Daily Additions to the ‘Pod

1. Maxwell – “Gods [Snippet]”
Smooth, sonic, and definitely will get the ladies in that special state of mind. Max, thanks for another baby-maker.

2. DyMe-A-DuZiN – “Memories”
Harry Fraud’s production on this is dope as usual—pairing with Dyme’s rap style perfectly. A Portrait Of Donnovan should be a treat when it drops next week.

3. DJ Muggs (feat. Danny Brown) – “Headfirst”
The beat is enough to get you hyped, but then hearing Danny Brown’s distorted vocals makes you lose your mind. Overall, this is “dub-hop”—or “hip-step”—done right.

4. Ducko Mcfli (feat. Trinidad Jame$) – “#NIYS”
RatchetLifeSophisticatedDreams drops February 12th.

5. Raheem DeVaughn – “Thinkin Bout You Freestyle”
On the latest remake from Sir DeVaughn, he’s tackling Frank Ocean’s new-generation classic. Although we prefer the latter’s vocals on the original, Raheem doesn’t sounds too bad himself.
