Brandun Deshay

Producer/rapper Brandun Deshay dropped his latest mixtape "Your Favorite Mixtape" as a little Christmas present. Deshay's concept for the tape was to mimic styles and rap over other artists beats, which was done in about 12 hrs. This Chicago native who was mentored by Charles Hamilton is looking to take over the rap game by mixing his midwest style and L.A. influences. Doing features and producing tracks for Casey Veggies, Dom Kennedy and others; Chicago looks to Deshay as the next big thing out of the windy city. Check his Volume One: For the Money & Volume Two: For the Show! tape also.

Outasight x LRG

NY native Outasight dropped his new mixtape "Further" presented by LRG earlier this week. This cat is puttin' his own stamp on rap/hip-hop and is expanding the ever so growing genre with his own creative take. Once being compared to Adam Levine (singer of Maroon 5) if he were able to rap, Outasight is divided between rapping and singing and brings best of both worlds together with bluesy, soulful and hip-hop samples. Def. worth checking out, download here:

Kidz In the Hall x LRG

The wiz RJD2 has done it again and has teamed up with Kenna for RJD2's new single released two days ago"Games You Can Win". Always a joy to hear RJD2, esp. new stuff. Look out for his new LP "The Colossus set for a Jan. 19 drop....enjoy

Vans New Releases

Vans released a few models which are available now, and def. caught my eye. The first is the vault garment pack; big fan of low profile shoes with a clean look and this def. delivers for kick back mode. The two shoes provide premium material with a grey suede body and black leather toe areas. Cost $70-75

In4mation x Vans teamed up for this second pair of shoes which drops on In4mation's online webstore December 12. The blue canvas material, blood red bottom and gum midsole create a very unique and clean look. Def. a nice pair for any season.

30 Seconds to Mars ft Kanye West: Hurricane

Didn't know what to think when I heard of the colab, but 'Ye generally kills any genre he gets on. Very nice track.

David Dallas: Big Time

What you know about that New Zealand hip-hop? Video concept is wack...actually down right horrible. But the track is straight.

Coldplay: Strawberry Swing

So I've notice I haven't been giving any love to the Indie genre, and I have no idea why because its one of my favorite styles. So I've committed to dropping more Indie posts on The TunnelVision. Anyways, this video came out around August or September and I still can't get over how sick it is....enjoy.
