Mr. Ninja Wrapper himself, Chris Webby, dropped the video for Block to the Burbs off of his most recent mixtape, Webster’s Laboratory, yesterday. To be honest, I am kind of surprised that Webby chose this song out of all the ones on his mixtape, although it was nice to get visuals for Freeway‘s solid verse. Personally, I would have preferred to see Roger That, if only to see Danimal Lector (the artist formerly known as Knowledge) spit venom. Oh well, this is still a solid choice for the Connecticut MC.

Good sample + good story = good listening. G-Eazy released this track/video in anticipation of his new mixtape, Endless Summer, which comes out tomorrow at 1:00 PM EST. The whole idea behind the mixtape is to sample songs with a 50’s/60’s feel to them, which should be fun listening. In this track, G-Eazy samples the 1961 classic, Runaround Sue, by Dion. If you are a fan of this sample, check out Chris Webby’s take on it, Runaround Web, which appeared on his Best in the Burbs mixtape. More on Endless Summer is sure to come once I get a chance to check it out.

Welcome to Weekend Wrewind, where every weekend I will post my favorite songs from the past couple years. In honor of his recently signing with Bad Boy Records, I am going to share one of my favorite Machine Gun Kelly songs with you guys. The Return is the last track on Lace Up, MGK’s most recent and most successful mixtape. What really sets Machine Gun Kelly apart from many other rappers is the raw emotion behind his songs, and this song is no exception. MGK has promised “no pushbacks” (you listening Weezy?) on his debut album, also named Lace Up, which will come out sometime in the first quarter of 2012. Be sure to check out Lace Up as well as his other mixtape, 100 Words and Running, and remember to Lace Up!

Mac Miller just released a new, fun track in honor of racking up 700k followers on his twitter. You always know what you are going to get with Mac: a light-hearted song with nasal vocals (whether that is good or bad is up to you). Make sure to look out for Mac’s debut album, Blue Slide Park, which should come out some time this fall.

Cam Meekins, a rising rapper out of Massachusetts, released a quick six track mixtape, Blazed and Confused, last week. I was not expecting much from Cam because his previous material has made him seem like a Sam Adams wannabe (Note: He often teams up with Matty Trump, who produces many of Sammy’s songs). However, I was pleasantly surprised by Blazed and Confused, which Cam made in 7 days. All the songs are excellent, but Landslide really stood out to me. Cam samples Fleetwood Mac’s Landslide, and the chill beat and quality lyrics has really won me over.  Other solid songs on the mixtape include My Lawn and Problem Child Freestyle. Be sure to check out Cam’s first album, Lamp City, which should be out sometime soon.

Welcome to WrapMuzik, where we promise to give you quality white rap as soon as it comes out. In my opinion, a new genre of rap has formed in the past couple of years: new-age white rap. Yes, I know that there have been a number of successful white rappers in the past, but never before have we seen such an influx of young, white rap talent. I am here to help you navigate through this exciting time in rap and hopefully help shed a new light on this genre that sometimes carries an unfair stigma.
