Summer Nights and Rare Events II

Happy Music Monday! Here you will find the latest in popular music and local artist every Monday.

photo (8)Summer Nights and Rare Events 2 (S.N.A.R.E. 2) is the title of MOB Affiliate A-Down‘s new mixtape. I received an early copy of the tape last week and in my personal opinion…this is the best project that A-Down has put out by far!

The tape gives you a lot of lyrical yet intellectual bars, which is expected from A-Down. But something new on this tape is that he gets sexy on multiple occasions. For example, on track 10 A-Down did his own version of “Diced Pineapples” and this is the first time I have ever heard anything like this from him (and ya’ll know this is one of my rapper crushes so I was definitely feeling this one). He gets sexy on other instruments like Wale‘s “Bad” along with MOB member Riggz – who we all know loves to get sexy on the track as well.

“Jump in your stream I just let my minnows race. We goin’ make a song and that backboard goin’ be the bass.” – A Down “Diced Pineapples Remix”

On track 13, A-Down took us back to some old Wayne and did a song to the “A Milli” instrumental where he was bragging on the track from beginning to end! There are other memorable instruments on this project like “Power Trip“, “All Falls Down“, and DJ Khaled‘s “No New Friends“.

The A-Down that we get on this mixtape is a very mature, lyrical, and intimate person; a project that you do not want to miss out on.

Summer Nights and Rare Events 2 (S.N.A.R.E. 2) drops July 29! Be sure to follow A-Down and MOB Music on twitter for the link when it drops.

Pirates x A-Down x Bizzoe

I have been on a roll lately getting all of this exclusive never before heard music. First I got some Freestlye’s from the MOB, then a private screening of Kairos, now you get Pirates!

Pirates is an unreleased track by Columbus local rapper A-Down.

Who said white man can’t rap?

A-Down is one talented rapper and has been featured on many mixtapes including Bizzoe’s Draft 5. A-Down returned the favor by featuring Bizzoe on S.N.A.R.E. (Summer Nights and Rare Events) on multiple tracks.

To kick off the wait for S.N.A.R.E. 2, A-Down sent over a new track titled “Pirates” featuring Bizzoe. They both snap on this track and there is a lot of crazy wordplay so make sure you really listen to the lyrics!
