Most blogged artists: Theophilus London to release debut disc
Monday 18 July 2011
Brooklyn hip hop/electro artist Theophilus London is a hot topic in The Hype Machine's most blogged artists chart as buzz builds for his upcoming debut album,
Times Are Weird These Days, set for a July 19 release. Also in the top ten on July 18 is American rapper Lil Wayne, who just released a free mixtape as an apology to his fans for his much delayed ninth album,
Tha Carter IV.
Bloggers have been swapping a slew of tracks by Theophilus London and a new animated video for the song "Girls, Girls $," as well as the trailer for the second season of HBO series How To Make It in America, which features the lead track, "I Stand Alone," for the upcoming album. "London introduces such a unique sound to the music world," writes blogger Earplugs Not Included. "'I Stand Alone' is certainly a perfect track displaying his abstract talent."
Lil Wayne just released a mixtape dubbed Sorry 4 the Wait after revealing that his highly anticipated upcoming full-length album is now set for an August 29 drop date. "While Sorry 4 the Wait doesn't have the force of [Wayne's prior mixtapes] Dedication 2 or Da Drought 3, there are plenty of moments in his freestyles to remind you why Wayne is still easily one of the most exciting rhyme slingers of the past decade," writes blogger No Genre Musi c.
