Get on KRIT's Level It's Returnof4eva: The Breakdown

Okay so we let yall know when the Big KRIT album dropped! Now it's time to break it down a little bit with one of his most versatile tracks on the album.

The single "Highs and Lows" show KRIT's ability to sing like Nate Dogg on the hook with a dirty south influence on the beat. 

His lyrics connect the hardcore beat with incredible metaphors of his music taking over his soul. KRIT searches his soul to find the beauty of his artistic imagery with the EQ's of Highs and Lows just like in his life experiences. 

You can't get much better than this track in the hip hop game! Get on KRIT's level and feel the experience of his music

Make sure to check back with Midwest Sounds for more info on KRIT and others.

Yo Krit, Lawrence is ready for you next Tues. Planes is ready

MerQury reppin KU and Lawrence - Midwest representing

MerQury aka Roderick Harris aka @IamMerQury is a Jayhawk with sick flow like a Todd Reesing pass to Kerry Meier but with a raw style like a Bill Self defense. 

MerQury's two newest pieces support KU Athletics and the huge Jayhawk fanbase that we at Midwest Sounds are proud to be a part of. 

His first hit, F.O.E, meaning family over everything comes from the use of the abbreviation as a team motto for this year's Kansas Basketball who went 34-3 and won the Big 12 Championship for the 7th Consecutive year.  

The video below shows MerQury's talent as an artist and also as a huge part of the KU family, representing F.O.E to the fullest.

MerQury also just released his fresh but gritty piece on the KU Football team, which hopes to come back from a disappointing season last year and bring in a new era of Kansas Football, led of course by Turner Gill. Coach Gill must like the raw power of this song because it can be heard on Coach Turner Gill's official website for KU Football. A must for future tailgates on the Hill.

Hear it after the quick season preview video on the main page of

Cuz its just a good day to post some Curren$y

Found some badass Curren$y videos today while scroungin the depths of the Google Machine's interwebs aka the internet. @FlySpitta is everywhere right now, but not in the mainstream, and I for one am not complaining.

This first video is a bit older but is way sick with its mix-up of the clips over the Strip in vegas and old school cartoons. Real executive on ya ass with Fiend - Flying Iron

This second video is to promote Curren$y, Young Roddy, & Trademark Da Skydiver's new tape, Jet Life to the Next Life.  This vid is crazy cuz the three of them ain't in it, instead its a James Bond mash-up. Fresh to def, 007.

Wiz Khalifa Live at the Roseland Ballroom (NYC) - "Rolling Papers" Debut Show

The Prince of the City aka Stoner Simpson aka Wiz Khalifa was in the Big City last night shredding hit after hit to a sold-out crowd at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC. Here are clips from DownerTV showing parts of his show. 

That crowd musta been poppin because Wiz was tearin up when talking to his fans about how far they've taken him and how much all their support means now that his debut studio album has been released.

@RealWizKhalifa - people say he changed but he's still waken baken and workin on new shit so do your thing Wiz

1892 (Statik Selektah & Termanology) feat. Mac Miller - "82-92"...Music Video

Awhile back the underground duo 1892, comprised of artists Static Selektah & Termanology, released the track 82-92 featuring the young Mac Miller. The track killed and has been a must on all chill playlists  since. 

Mac comes on in the beginning with his fast quick witted flow, while the whole track floats along on an old school feel.

XV Put on a Show Last Night!

Wichita, Kansas native, XV, took stage in Lawrence on Sunday the 27th as an opener for Travie McCoy.. to us though that man was the headliner. Got great footage of Vizzy rockin the Granada, will post in the next few days. 

Met the man after the show, legit guy said what up to us and was glad we could support his local movement. Midwest Sounds representing.

The interesting thing about XV is that he's from Wichita but blew up on the east coast, mainly in the NYC. To get any respect out east in the hip-hop game is hard to come by, but XV did it with style and lyrical content that is respected by other MC's; and to do this on the east cost is big news for XV and his fans. XV knows where he came from as the influence of the Midwest and experiences in his life impacted his music. He feels the love back home and that is why Midwest Sounds takes a liking into XV and what he has to offer the Hip-hop game.
