Melo, for the win! No, not that Melo. And Vin Diesel had one too of something.

MeLo-X – “Girls Love Rihanna”

By | 3 Comments

When Drake dropped <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2013/04/drake-ft-james-fauntleroy-girls-love-beyonce">"Girls Love Beyonce,"</a> I couldn't help but wonder about the actual muse of his songs (and why he didn't borrow "Bootylicious," but that's neither here nor there).

Smoke DZA – “Marley’s Garden”


While much of the world is blazing a birthday blunt in memory of Bob Marley today, who's more qualified than Smoke DZA to release a tribute song to reggae's fallen warrior.

Melo-X – “More Merch” Video

By | 3 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/12/download-melo-x-more-merch"> Bored with kicking the raw raps to the bricks out in Brooklyn, the ambidextrous Melo-X uproots his skills and delivers the flawless title track to his <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/more-merch">exceptional last project</a> directly in front of the Eiffel Tower.


Melo-X – “Cooked Food” Video


<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/12/download-melo-x-more-merch"> When it comes to conquering the male species, they say a pretty girl is our weakness and the stomach is the key. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/melo-x">Melo-Xtra</a> decided to go the two bird route and mix both connotations in his big 'ass bowl of gumbo to create a harmonious dish.

Kidz In The Hall Drop Junk Food For Thought


<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=163642"> The road to a song's creation is one of my favorite things to witness in music production. So it's no surprise that Kidz In The Hall's first Brain Candy flick caught my attention. In it, Double-0 wipes some dust off this Little Anthony and The Imperials' <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExTi7p0nQEw">"Hold On To Someone"</a> sample for "So Amzin'" and throws in some panache via the MIDI controller and the Yamaha keyboard.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/12/download-melo-x-more-merch"> Yeah, the song's co-stars only appear in the theoretical sense (read: the sample), but let us dismiss all thoughts of a Beatle and Bella for a second. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/melo-x">Melo-X</a> successfully taps into the harvest grove of love by puppeteering R&B to carry out his Hip-Hop deeds.

MeLo-X Feat. Kendrick Lamar & Mickey Factz – “Rapity Rap”

By | 3 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=152737"> The title "Rapity Rap" is self-explanatory but may not do the track justice, as each rapper rhymes with a sense of urgency. Those with slow ears or aversion to syllables, might want to skip this one. The rest, enjoy and pay attention because More Merch drops on 12.8.10.

Last time they were probably were on your radar was that infectious <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_Fe_LYtsDI">"Move Ya Body"</a> song.
