To you:

Picture 9

It’s been a rad summer here in Philadelphia. We’ve been living, laughing, loving, and all the other L words that you do during summer. And now we’ve reached our 200th post at The Daily Rag. I appreciate all of you loyal readers, however often you come visit us. There’s lots of change in the air. New seasons, birthdays, new jobs, new leases on life, but no matter what changes, we’ll still be holdin’ it down here at our online home.

There’s also some exciting things in the works for our fair blog: year end/decade end lists, new contributors and new dope shit for your eyes and ears. Hopefully you enjoy what you find here and continue to come back.

As a little personal thank you to all of you, this is a mix I’ve been listening to myself for the last couple weeks. There’s stuff on it i’ve already posted, and stuff I haven’t. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I’ve been. Thanks again! Have an amazing weekend!

Wale: Back to the Feature


While constantly touring, twittering like a fiend, and working on his debut LP, Wale still has time to kick us a gem of a new mixtape. Heavy with solid features and production by 9th Wonder, Mikey Mike, and Mark Ronson, Back to the Feature is one more step up in Wale’s young career. Great summer mixtape full of horns, great beats, and Wale’s sick flow. Check out these tracks and cop the whole thing here.

A steady stream of leaks, remixes, and mixtapes has kept this fresh DC rapper in the (blog) headlines for over a year now. On the cover of the new GQ, they even go as far as to call him the best new rapper since Jay Z. All of this hype is leading up to his upcoming album Attention Deficit. I can’t wait til he leaks his own hot ass summer jam via his twitter, which has become his custom.

Here’s some of his latest and greatest…

Wale – Hot Shyt ft. Peedi Crakk, Black Thought, 2Face, Young Chris

Wale – Gotta Be Magic

Wale – Penthouse Anthem

Wale – W.A.L.E.D.A.N.C.E. ft. Justice

Wale – Nike Boots (remix) ft. Lil Wayne
