I haven’t been posting a lot these days. …And in fact this might be my last post on this current iteration of “Ted-Payne.com”. I still have a passion for rap music (and will vehemently defend it’s current iteration) but the time for this particular site is nearing an end. I will probably relaunch this as [...]
Nasir Jones and Amy Winehouse- two of my personal favs. Dj Terry Urban, combines some of their best hits together into a banging mash-up. Have to listen on Mixcloud though, haven’t seen a download link anywhere. Full hour long mixtape – check it out.
Not often these days something really new and different comes around in rap. I think Alpoko Don fits that bill.

When I saw the still for this video, I was instantly on my guard. White, ginger teenage girl rapping…my spidey sense was tingling. Danger. But, I gave her a chance. After all I actually liked Gucci Gucci by Kreayshawn, so who am I to judge? Pleasantly surprised. The beat was a laid back spacey beat [...]
