    10 Essential MellowHigh Tracks
    Mar 29, 2015 at 07:17pm
    MellowHigh is an offshoot of the Odd Future group MellowHype. It gets a tad complicated, but stay with us now. MellowHype = Hodgy Beats (rapper) + Left Brain (producer) But when you add weedhead Domo Genesis in the mix, it becomes MellowHigh...usually. Sometimes they forgo the Left Brain production for someone else, too. MellowHigh only has one self-titled album out and a few scattered tracks from features and mixtapes. However, the album is pretty sick, and if you're down with Odd Future's brand of crazy West Coast rap, you're sure to dig it.

    Review: Earl Sweatshirt's "I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside"

    Earl Sweatshirt’s I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Get Outside is a short and moody album. It also happens to be a very focused, quality listen, and possibly the best output we’ve received from the California native. Through bummed-out stoned raps and shoegazing beats, Earl proves to be one of the most talented, albeit depressed, rappers in the game.

    When Earl Sweatshirt was just 15, he was rapping about raping nuns and slitting wrists, so it's hard to imagine his lyrics getting any more demented than that. But on his new album, I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside, they do, albeit in a more subtle, depressing way.

    Last week was a great one to be a hip-hop fan, but a bad one to be a record label executive. To Pimp A Butterfly has some considering it a classic already, and we have a new Earl Sweatshirt album to look forward to next week. Sony and Interscope may have gotten put on blast, but it's OK: Chris Brown's off probation.

    Shock value was everything for Odd Future when they were getting started. Whether donning ski masks and performing alongside possessed-looking girls on Jimmy Fallon, detailing ridiculously violent sexual encounters, or mixing seemingly-lethal drug cocktails in their music videos, the L.A. crew first got attention for their antics, in addition to their considerable talents.

    If it weren't for the weird for-pay nature of Drake's new "mixtape" then all five of these tracks would come from the 6 God. That's not to say the rest of the week was terrible. Our Top 100 chart contained a number of notable tracks.  Standouts this week included Migos, Big Sean, Chance The Rapper and OT Genasis. Take a look at the list and feel free to suggest your own top tracks in the comments.

    Call this story Halley's Comet because shit this weird only comes around once every 76 years or so.

Their lengthy conversation touches on everything from egos to the relativity of time (yeah, it gets pretty weird), so we've decided to give you some highlight excerpts below.

    How did this week go? Not great. By another miracle of the justice system, Darren Wilson got away with murdering Michael Brown; a grand jury decided to not indict him. To put this in perspective, you need to be beyond reasonable doubt to prove a defendant is guilty. An indictment only requires suspicion. That jury didn't find suspicion with Brown suffering multiple shots. So you can see how the circumstance could cause some outrage within the hip-hop community. See them in 140 Bars Or Less.

    Flying Lotus has been making brain-melting beats for about a decade now. The LA-based producer lives in the underground, but as the electronic music world has exploded, his music has gained the acclaim of critics and casual music listeners everywhere. FlyLo made some huge waves in the blogosphere when news broke that he is in fact Captain Murphy, the enigmatic, cartoony, deep-voiced, laughing hip-hop personality that released the Duality mixtape a couple years back.

    The debut of Earl Sweatshirt came with a video that certainly offended some people, but yesterday it was Earl who was pointing out the problematic aspects of Taylor Swift's new clip. Unlike Sweatshirt's shock-inducing "EARL" visual, Taylor's "Shake It Off" is seemingly unaware of it's potentially harmful message, which the Odd Future rapper pointed out on Twitter yesterday.
