    Oh my gosh! I LOVE Cris Cab! Lately I have a thing for songs with horns in them. I also have a thing for sweet crooning vocals that sound like a beautiful Spring day on the coast of San Francisco. I’ve never even been there, but I hear it’s great. Amazing reggae cover. Keep going Cris!

    P.S. There’s so many covers of this song now I forgot who Foster The People were! Lolz.

    Hippie Girl” (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

    Love this! Here’s an awesome, chill song for your summer playlist. My friend Nick tipped me off about these guys, and I’m loving their alternative feel. It’s smooth, chill, collegey hip-hop, mixed with a hint of reggae and pop music. Almost G-Love-ish.  The lyrics to this song are ridic.

    “She likes really fat blunts and Natural Lights,

    She loves festivals, she wants my testicles”

    Words to live by. Awesome song though. A Cool Stick has opened for Drake, Sam Adams, Big Sean, and Citizen Cope, and also recently received recognition as “Baltimore’s Best Hip-Hop Act” by the Baltimore City Paper. Keep an eye out for them!

    P.S… Nick.

    Meet Jillboard’s new obsession: SHINOBI NINJA! I almost don’t want to post about them because they’re one of those little hipster secrets I want to keep all to myself. However, it would be a felony to not post. Seriously, the cops were at my door. Take a listen to your new Beastie Boys-revival meets new technology power-group. They are a self-described “Mashup of Hip Hop, Punk, Reggae, Rock, and Metal, into an original urban sound” meshed with “the hardbody party lifestyle”. I like to think of them as a super innovative, culture-blending, power-punk-meets-DJ-culture hipster magnet. Can you dig it?

    I feel like I’ve been waiting a lifetime to hear something like this – I’m actually ashamed for not knowing of them sooner. I’m one of the biggest endorsers of pop music, and I love pop down to its last sweet lovey-dovey note, but sometimes I need a break because my brain starts turning to mush. Sometimes I need to embrace my inner-rebel and listen to something that makes me want to break shet – not really, but seriously, let’s get loud.

    I think the song title “Blaow!” says it all. Just yell it. It sounds awesome. Oh and the guitar solo in “Nah Nah”? Are you kidding? I love them! Up until now, they’ve only had dangling songs and killer EPs, but they’re just days away from the release of their debut album, Rock Hood, which is kicking off with a release party/performance in NYC (click here for the juicy deets). Who’s going?! Me me me! Apparently they have an energy-blasted live show. For now, download their EP, “The Baby G EP” fo’ free by visiting their website: http://www.shinobininja.com/ . 3/4 of their EP is on Jillboard Top 100 Playlist 6.0 (“Blaow!, “Nah Nah”, “Superstar (DA Remix)”), so download that immediately. That’s an order.

    More rants on Shinobi Ninja to come. Click here to watch their music video for “Brooklyn to Babylon”, another AWESOME song. And “like” them hurr: SHINOBI NINJA Facebook.

    Forever Mashup” (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

    Introducing: The Friendly Giant. New to the mashup game, this guy is just starting to make a name for himself. He sent me this track and I am thoroughly impressed by such contrasting songs mixing so well. He mixes a Jack Johnson instrumental with Drake, Lil Wayne, and Kanye’s “Forever”. It’s soooo good. Unbelievable, right? Well believe it. Sir.

    “Be Easy” (Click to DL)

    Here’s another track from E-Train. It’s super chill with a nice sampling of Bob Marley’s “Be Easy”. It’s one of those relaxing, smooth rap summer songs. Too bad it’s not summer.. I can’t complain enough about the cold weather. Can I live in Miami now? Can’t wait to go back to school and walk to class in the FREEZING. COLD. Sorry, this has nothing to do with E-Train. But if you like Bob Marley and hip-hop music, this is right up your alley.
