FCUK VALENTINE’S MIX 3

If you’ve been following for a while you may have seen the previous 2 FCUK V-Day mixes. Did one in 2011, one in 2012, then didn’t bother for a couple years. Now it’s back. A shitty mix of songs about shitty relationships and shitty breakups and anger and sadness and hatred.

I’m really bad at running a website, so I can’t figure out how to make the play button work. Press “Download” or “Play In Popup” and the audio will work. You can save the mix by right clicking “Download” and then “Save Link As…”

EPISODE 78: BOOGIE

This week we talk to Long Beach native Boogie. Found out about him last year when our old pal Clayton started tweeting out his songs and vids. When his tape “Thirst 48” dropped last summer I knew you guys needed to hear it. The tape lays his cynical outlook on the social media generation over soulful, summery beats. Littered with production and features from former Kinda Neat guests, it’s the perfect soundtrack to your next long drive. Listen in as we talk about singing in church, raising his son, and the difference between cliques and gangs.

EPISODE 77: MR. MFN EXQUIRE

We made it to 2015, and our first guest of the year is Mr. MFN Exquire. I find the early 2010’s to be an amazingly interesting time in music. The labels really started to see themselves losing their stronghold and began trying to get their hands on anything that was building a buzz on the internet. Mr. MFN Exquire’s buzz was palpable in 2011. The song “Huzzah” was so raw, and the video so grimy and stylized, it skyrocketed him into the limelight of every major music publication and every rap fan I knew was excited by his potential. Then, somewhat surprisingly in my eyes, he signed a deal with a major. Things seemed to get a bit quieter…from the outside looking in it seemed like the label didn’t know what to do with him…eventually he announced he was no longer signed to Universal. I’m so intrigued by these stories and find them so relatable, it goes without saying I was excited to hear his side. Highly recommend this convo, we had a great time talking about his rolling stone of a father, his stint on Universal, and his success being anything but “overnight.”

EPISODE 76: MICHAEL CHRISTMAS

On this most fitting of occasions we sat down with Michael Christmas. The 20 year old Boston bred emcee recently moved to Los Angeles and is being talked about in all the right circles. He started gaining traction last year with videos like “Michael Cera” and “Daily” before releasing his “Is This Art?” mixtape early in 2014. You guys are gonna love this dude if you don’t already. We talk about his early aspirations of being the next Soulja Boy, watching his dad and step dad play Madden together, and freezing up at mansion party full of fine model chicks.

EPISODE 75: FATHER

For our 75th episode we sat down with Father. His “Young Hot Ebony” project is one of my favorite tapes of the year. With it’s infectious hooks, cohesive sound, and deceptively clever wordplay, it’s no wonder the Atlanta based rapper was able to continue kicking down the door after his frequent collaborator, iloveMakonnen, got his foot in it. We discuss his self-inflicted isolation as a youth, meeting his Awful Media affiliates in college, and the whirlwind life has become since the rest of the world found out about their enclave.

EPISODE 74: DOMINIC COOLEY

If you’ve been following along, you know I travel a lot doing photo work with my best friend and photographer Dominic Cooley. This is the first non-music guest we’ve ever had, but his life story of hard work and perseverance is going to inspire you to follow your dream, regardless of what dream it is. Not only do I love the dude like a brother, but I respect the shit out of his hustle and work ethic. We talk about being a social chameleon, raising a son with autism, and why our rag tag crew of knuckleheads keeps getting hired on photo jobs.
