Adding to our hate list: Big Z

At Noise Narcs, we hate 16-year-olds. They’re loud. They’re prone to flash mobs. They use words we don’t understand. They drive faster than the posted speed limit. They’re always hitting their balls on our lawn. In fact, there’s only one thing we hate more than 16-year-olds: 16-year-olds who disguise their age.

A few weeks ago, we got an email from Zach Caraher, who identified himself as a producer from Philadelphia with a new mixtape dropping on September 22nd. So hey: I like the music and things from Philadelphia, so I gave it a listen. And it’s pretty darn good, even had me toe tapping to a goddamn Jack Johnson song. Only one thing Zach forgot to mention: he’s sixteen. Damn kids, always thinking that old people don’t know how to use Google.

So, Zach aka Big Z Rap Remixes, keep your damn ball of our lawns. And the remixes coming.

Donald Glover: he's serious about this rap thing

I know I’m not the only fan of NBC’s Community here, but what you may not know is that Donald Glover, who plays Troy and has written jokes for 30 Rock, also raps under the name Childish Gambino.  He’s recently released a full-length album, Culdesac, which you can download along with his two EP’s, I Am Just a Rapper, Vol.’s 1 & 2, from his blog.  For free.

Culdesac has high-quality production, but what makes the EPs sort of different and fun is that he’s rapping over uncut indie songs for the most part.

So, following up on Greg’s Sleigh Bells post, here’s Childish Gambino’s “New Prince”:

and here’s a track from Culdsac:

Childish Gambino, “Hero”

and here’s a funny skit from Derrick Comedy:
