It isn’t farfetched to infer that California native and producer extraordinaire Flying Lotus was inspired by Del The Funky Homosapien, Dan The Automator and Kid Koala’s ahead-of-its-time underground opus Deltron 3030.  Now DJ Skarface has stepped to the forefront to reinterpret the classic album by mashing it up with various album cuts, demos and remixed from FlyLo.

Detroit is releasing amazing hip-hop music. Crown Nation, Quelle Chris, Black Milk, Guilty Simpson, Danny Brown and a whole roster of gritty, rocky, sooty rhymers are giving “homegrown” a place in rap music again. This socially-relevant and wholly irreverent tape by Denmark Vessey titled Don’t Drink The Kool Aid will be in the rotation regularly through the fall (courtesy DJ House Shoes and Dirty Science). Do yourself a favor, and play.

This kind of song will insure that I never ever move to Detroit. A lot of chains are getting snatched in these verses…and ribs cracked…jaws shattered. Really fun stuff for your city. Happy Murder Capitals, y’all. Off Guilty Simpson & Small Professor’s Highway Robbery.

Even though the release of Truly Yours was truly unexpected, there’s no way anyone could be mad at some new (let alone free) material from the Prince of the Roc. The whole release sounds like vintage J. Cole, so if you’re a fan you definitely won’t be disappointed with this short listen. Read More

KRNDN, formerly Krondon, of Strong Arm Steady lets lose his first solo studio album, Everything’s Nothing, for Free99.  Despite being the same person, KRNDN’s spelling change has also brought forth a change in sound.  The mood of this Free LP varies greatly from what we’ve come to except from KNRND; there’s an absence of the West Coast boom-bap sound that SAS has become known for, as the instrumentals tend to be a little more futuristic on this release.  Everything’s Nothing features production from the likes Cardo, DJ Khalil, 321 and DJ Dahi.  Hit the jump for the track list, previews and the download link.
