mick-jenkins-geo-shapes

Along with all the details for his forthcoming Wave[s], Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins has shared “Get Up Get Down”, a track featuring production by ThemPeople and Stefan Ponce. The cut has an old-school feel and is definitely a solid jam filled with the perfect summertime vibes (no offense Vince) with an insanely low rumbling bass halfway through. But don’t fret lyric junkies, Jenkins spits that heat: “Isn’t it ironic/ Got ’em hooked on phonics/ Mama used to think it was just chronic/ It was all bad.” Fire! Peep that new new from Mick Jenkins after the jump.

cassidy-running-out-of-patience

So I just read on Miss Info that Cassidy is now officially a man of God and plans to release an album consisting entirely of family-oriented jams? What? Is this April 1st? What is going on here? This is especially perplexing giving his recent output containing some, well, less than “positive” family-friendly vibes. Now Cass is sharing another street rap track in “Running Out of Patience,” which is actually kinda dope. Peep it after the jump!

The day is here — Future’s highly-anticipated album Dirty Sprite 2 has arrived. DS2 is the followup to 2013’s uneven Honest and 2012’s debut, Pluto. Here Future delivers eighteen total tracks of pure, grade-A Southern rap. This thing goes hard for all eighteen tracks and there are even some moments of sheer beauty hidden beneath all the ugliness. Standouts include “I Serve the Base,” “Where Ya At” (featuring Drake, the only featured artist,) “Slave Master” (there’s a gorgeous A$AP Yams tribute at the end,) “Blood on the Money,” and “The Percocet & Stripper Joint,” and the heart-rendering “Know the Meaning.” DS2 is currently available for streaming and download via iTunes. Get the stream after the jump!

The Jersey spitter has already shared “Trapped” last week and now he’s sharing “Chopper 2 da Funeral,” a grim track that is produced by Montage.

despot-500x500

Despot, the Queens born rapper, hasn’t been all that active ever since he delivered a monster verse on Run the Jewels’ “Blockbuster Night Pt. 2.” Sure he’s contributed some stuff for Vampire Weekend, iLoveMakonnen and a couple others but what we truly want is some solo Despot. And it looks like we are finally getting that with this new track, “House of Bricks.” The track is also produced by E*Vax of Ratatat. Check out the new Despot cut after the jump.

southpaw-soundtrack

PRhyme, the duo of DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9″, found some unexpected success late last year when they dropped their self-titled debut album. This collaboration is looking to pick up on that late effort heroics from last year by continuing releasing music under the PRhyme moniker. And today is a good day as they’re sharing “Mode” featuring Logic, another terrific rapper who put out a solid project last year. This track is a loosie that will be appearing on the Southpaw soundtrack (!!!), which is also said to be curated by Detroit’s Eminem. (Who is one-half of Bad Meets Evil with Royce — just saying.) Either way this is a solid all-around track that’s getting us here at iHipHop hyped on some more PRhyme ish in the future. Listen after the jump.

casino-el-chapo

In case you haven’t heard, Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the notorious Mexican drug lord better known as “El Chapo,” has escaped from prison this week. So I suppose it’s only natural that Lil Mexico (a neighborhood in Atlanta’s infamous Zone 6 area) rappers Future, Young Scooter and Casino link up to pay tribute to the crime boss. The aforementioned rappers have owed a great deal of their careers to drugs and drug dealing as that’s 80% of what they rap about, so it’s kinda cool that they keep things, well, current. Check out “El Chapo” after the jump and peep Casino’s latest mixtape Ex Drug Dealer 2, out now.

You know, I’m not the biggest Papoose fan. Personally, I’m not a fan of his music or his personality. That cringeworthy New York attitude, that dated sound, that unwillingness to create forward-thinking music. We’ve got guys like Future and Chance the Rapper out right now, killing the game in their respective lanes, that you often wonder: Where does Papoose fit into all of this? And the short answer is: Nowhere. No offense, of course. The dude can spit, I guess. But one thing I’ve always admired about Pap is his unbridled love for fellow rapper, Remy Ma. Remy was locked up for some six years stemming from a gun charge and during that time Pap was behind his woman 100% of the time. And with the two now set to appear on the new season of Love & Hip-Hop Pap is showing his lady love via a Ty Dolla $ign feature. Remy is featured, too. Check it out after the jump.

Eh, I don’t know about this one, guys. GZA is a Genius, that’s no question. But the dude has been taking so many Ls as of late. Liquid Swords was twenty years ago, it’s over. Now he’s just the bitter old man repeating “back in my day” like a broken record. But here he’s teaming up with Sweet Valley, a group that’s worked with artists like Soulja Boy and even Juicy J. Check it out after the jump to see if you’ll like it.
