sheek-louch-sucka-free

With Halloween just around the corner, rap music is already preparing itself for the festivities. Rightfully so, it’s a season that’s ripe for conceptually interesting rap music. There’s even an entire subgenre within rap which, lest we forget, brazenly deals with the macabre. Although Sheek Louch makes rap music far from the ”horrorcore” style, his latest cut, ”Sucka Free” — featuring fellow D-Block rapper Jadakiss, no less — is a clinical bloodbath. Sheek makes work of the song, which is backed by a jagged and distorted beat. Additionally, Jadakiss’ guest spot — while perfectly adequate — discovers the Brooklyn emcee getting into holiday season early with an equally wicked verse. Check out Sheek Louch’s ”Sucka Free” from his forthcoming Gorillaween mixtape dropping October 31st.

After sharing his take on Post Malone’s ”White Iverson” yesterday, Rick Ross returns with something a little bit more ”form fitting”, so to speak. Future, whose Monster mixtape turns one today (read a retrospective on it here), dropped his excellent DS2 album over the summer, which has apparently prompted Rozay to jump on one of its standout tracks, ”Stick Talk”. The track finds Rozay comfortably seated in the cockpit, and spitting bars over the high-energy Southside production. Additionally, Ross will be dropping his own album, Black Market, shortly. In the meantime, give his take on Future’s ”Stick Talk” after the jump.

Chance the Rapper is keeping active, to say the least. Fresh off a critically-acclaimed mixtape and tour, the Chicago spitter is sharing a brand new song. Of course, being the unpredictable character that he is, Chance’s new song has a bit of a backstory. Last week, Chance praised one Stephen Colbert — yes, the talk show host — for his exceptional musical chops (calling him ”amazing”, in the process), and sharing little else about a ”secret song” between the two. And after his performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night (you may watch the performance here), Chance is wasting no time in sharing the new track. In addition to featuring Saba on the mic, ”Angels” is written and performed by Chance, Lido, Peter Cottontale, Nate Fox, and Donnie Trumpet (for The Social Experiment) — sorry, no Stephen Colbert on an MPC here, folks. Check out the new Chance the Rapper track, ”Angels”, after the jump. Also, the track is available for free through iTunes — get it here!

Logic301_2015-Sep-21_i7cpaz-500x500

Logic’s looking to follow-up last year’s Under Pressure — his debut album — with The Incredible True Story. In this offering, Logic who has declared himself the Young Sinatra in the past, has evolved into something great: “Young Jesus.” That’s a bold title to give yourself but judging from his new found confidence, Logic may perhaps earn that moniker. With fellow DMV rapper Big Lenbo in his corner, “Young Jesus” is a pretty killer track and a great offering from the forthcoming The Incredible True Story, which is due out later this year. Listen to “Young Jesus” from Logic after the jump.
