Earlier in the week OG Maco (best known for his breakout track “U Guessed It!” which he has been attempting to bury alive) announced that he would be teaming up with fellow Atlantan, producer Zaytoven for a collaborative project. Well, it’s now here. OGZAY is the collaborative project between Maco and Zayotven, so basically all production on here is handled by Zay and the spitting courtesy of Maco. It’s short but sweet; containing a brisk eight tracks and zero features. Me likey! Check out the OGZAY EP in full after the jump.
If you’ve been reading iHipHop long enough then you’re certainly no stranger to my support for Miami rapper Denzel Curry. I’ve countlessly praised this 20-year-old ever since I was introduced to him via SpaceGhostPuurp’s Raider Klan group. When Curry dropped his debut full length album Nostalgic 64 back in 2013 my interest in his music grew tenfold and although he’s dropped some gems since then with tracks like “Feel Like That,” “Certified,” and “Ultimate” Curry has yet to put out a full-bodied work like Nostalgic 64. But that appears to be ending this coming May 26th when he’s set to drop his double EP entitled 32 Zel / Planet Shrooms. Needless to say I am hyped and after hearing “Envy Me,” the first official preview of the forthcoming double EP, I am definitely going to be incessantly staring at my calendar waiting for that date to finally arrive. Anyway, peep “Envy Me” after the jump!

Future continues his streak of dropping free material after his return to the mixtape circuit in late 2014 with Monster. Now he teams up with fellow Atlantan, one of the city’s most successful producers, Zaytoven. Beast Mode finds Future rapping with little help from others (there is only two features in Young Scooter and Juvenile). Safe to say the current streak Future is on is a welcome return to form for the autotune connoisseur. Stream and download Future and Zaytoven’s Beast Mode EP after the jump.
OG Maco, the New Atlanta rapper who is perhaps best known for his viral smash “U Guessed It” from earlier this year, has just released his BREATHE EP, the followup to his aggressive and uncompromising OG Maco EP. The BREATHE EP drastically differs from Maco’s previous aforementioned music in that it finds Maco rapping with a clear mind, on civil rights issues in America right now (those being the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, respectively.) The three tracks “Get Down,” “Do Better,” and “Riot” are undoubtedly OG Maco’s most introspective moments in his short catalog and it’s refreshing to hear a quintessential “trap rapper” attempt something different for a change. Stream OG Maco’s three track BREATHE EP after the jump.
The LOX have been working their way up to their brand new release The Trinity: 2nd Sermon for quite some time now. Almost an entire year, to be exact.

Stream and download The LOX’s The Trinity: 2nd Sermon after the jump.
