If this collaboration doesn’t blow your mind, there’s something wrong with your mind. After crowd-sourcing funding for their new album, De La Soul unite with Nas for a new song called God It. The trio describe this as “an appetiser,” which suggests their album should be pretty damn good!
Three of my favourite artists to come out of Atlanta in the past year unite on a new song titled Metropolis. EarthGang once again enlist their Spillage Village collaborator, J.I.D. Produced by Childish Major, the track is taken from the Bears Like This 2 project.
Just days ago ATL MC, OG Maco announced that he was releasing an EP with a legendary local producer, Zaytoven, during the Summer. But he made fans happy yesterday when he released the EP months early. Titled OGZAY, the EP serves as Maco‘s fourth EP so far in 2015.
One of my favourite rising singers in the music scene goes by the name of Via Rosa. The Chicago-based singer and songwriter is a member of the collective, THEMpeople, but today releases a solo track called, Outraged, produced by Sani. If you missed it, check out the duo’s 2014 EP, Cinderella ’99, before their forthcoming project, Sleepless in Chicago.
A mildly confusing collaboration arrives today as one of my favourite new school producers, Thelonious Martin, supplies an instrumental to rapper, Theophilus Martins, from Providence, Rhode Island. Press play on Show Me Around for a smooth sound that will have you wondering if their similar names aren’t a sign of them making amazing music together in future.
Phaze What prepares for his upcoming Sweet Chin Movie EP with the release of two loose cuts from the project. The first song is Poker Face Freestyle, which sees Phaze rapping over Dre‘s High Powered instrumental. The second track, Out Of The Woods features fellow West London MC, Catch’m and produced by Fluency.
Fans of Chicago’s rap scene will already be familiar with Jazz singer Lili K, after her impressive appearances on songs by Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa and more. Today the songstress releases her debut album, Ruby, available to stream via Spotify. To purchase the album, head to iTunes.
When the Rinse FM rip of this dropped last week, it was pretty hard to play anything else. Featuring a bold, uplifting vocal sample from D.J. Rogers‘ Watch Out For The Riders, Hudson Mohawke‘s Ryderz is a small obsession for me right now. The song is taken from HudMo’s latest project, Lantern, due in June. PLEASE DO NOT FEEL THE NEED TO RAP ON THIS – THAT GOES TO EVERY RAPPER UNDER THE SUN!
4/20 was even better than usual this year as Curren$y followed up his brand new Pilot Talk 3 album with an EP titled, Even More Saturday Night Car Tunes. The five track EP is relatively feature free, with the exception of a Yo Gotti appearance. Stream via Spotify…
