Jhené Aiko (Feat. Cocaine 80’s) – “To Love & Die”

25 Jun


It’s safe to say everyone here at we loves Cocaine 80’s. I think it’s also safe to say we all enjoy Jhené Aiko’s voice. For all you who haven’t heard, Jhené Aiko is getting ready to release her debut album Souled Out with Def Jam Records. Here’s the first single, “To Love & Die.”


The Tay – Pink Syrup

13 Jun

Pink Syrup

Those of you who are fans of Dormtainment should be familiar with Tay, Dormtainment member/producer of their awesome mixtapes (more on that in a later post). If you’ve paid close attention to their videos and posts on their website, you’ll see that Tay does advertise his personal projects. I clicked on his link to see what he was about and was pleasantly surprised. Pink Syrup, his most recent release on BandCamp, takes you to a mystical island made of a stack of pancakes, home to naked women with fat asses floating in an ocean of this provocative pink syrup that gives the project its name. If that description doesn’t draw you in, listening to his “Syrupy Intro” (with your eyes closed and headphones in–trust me, just do it!), with its seamless blend of hip hop beats and syrupy-smooth jazz melodies, surely will.

You can find The Tay’s Pink Syrup not in your local grocery, unfortunately, but on Bandcamp where you can listen as much as you like for free online, or buy the entire album for $5.
