Despite residing from essentially the same place (Coney Island, Brooklyn) and sharing virtually the same exact cultural background (Ukrainian-American) I never really messed with rising rapper Your Old Droog all that much. I mean, in the interest of full disclosure and not frontin’, I think dude is super talented and a great altogether MC but frankly I’m not “feeling” it, you know? I always find the beats to be dated and seriously lackluster and I can never quite relate to Your Old Droog. Like, who is Droog? But this track right here, with its super kitschy and ultra NYC-indebted song title, is right up my alley, fam. Droog delivers the goods with “Unlimited MetroCard” which is produced by the always reliable Statik Selektah. Check out “Unlimitated MetroCard” after the jump and peep Statik’s new album Lucky 7 dropping this July.
Lil Durk’s major label debut album is finally out this year, as it arrives less than a month away. June 2nd marks the debut of Lil Durk’s Remember My Name and here he’s reunited with fellow Chicagoan Young Chop for “What Your Life Like.” Listen to the track after the jump.
There’s one thing hip-hop doesn’t have a shortage of: weed based songs. And “Wanna Get High” with its blunt (haha, get it?) song title deals with just that. Project Pat links up with fellow stoner Wiz Khalifa and Joe Simpson for “Wanna Get High” remix. Check it out after the jump.
Super Chef Makonnen is back after dropping his Drink More Water 5 mixtape. He’s dropping a track entitled after one of his many nicknames and it’s produced by GOLD. Check out Makonnen’s “Super Chef” cut after the jump.
Summer is here and DJ Khaled is up and running, assembling a heavyweight feature list for his new (potential) anthem “How Many Times.” Here Khaled recruits Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Big Sean for “How Many Times” a track Khaled is surely proud of and feels its up there with previous hits “I’m on One” and “No New Friends.” Thing is, Drake is missing in action. Check out DJ Khaled’s “How Many Times” after the jump.
DJ Clue has an album coming out. That’s right, DJ Clue. Bet you didn’t think you’d be hearing that name ever again. Well, his album Banned From CD 2015 will be out later this year. Here he’s teaming up with French Montana and Yo Gotti. Check it after the jump.
Damn, now this is what I’m talkin’ about! Vince Staples snaps on this. Also, the added Future sample is perfection. This entire track is pretty much the epitome of dope ass contemporary hip-hop. A classic in the making. Check out Vince Staples’ “Señorita” after the jump.
After dropping his all-around great retail mixtape Barter 6 a few weeks back (read my review here) Young Thug returns with some new heat. “Love Me Forever” finds Thugger reunited with ATLien producer London on da Track and although it’s uncertain whether or not this track will appear on Thug’s forthcoming debut album HiTunes this track is sure to give fans something to enjoy in the meantime. Check out Young Thug’s “Love Me Forever” after the jump.
Jim Jones links up with Trav for a new track entitled “Radio.” This isn’t the first time the two have been on a track together, you may remember Jones and Trav teaming up on “Can’t Tell Bout” and “Whole Thing.” Check out Jim Jones’ “Radio” after the jump.
Jadakiss and Styles P, while very familiar with each other as they’re two-thirds of hip-hop group The LOX, are tag teaming this new track they’ve got out entitled “Block Work.” Needless to say the two go off on this track; bar for bar. Check it out after the jump.
Kevin Gates’ grind anthem “I Don’t Get Tired” is getting an official remix. The original is from his terrific and criminally underrated Luca Brasi 2 mixtape but hopefully this new remix will give that project some new life. Check out Gates’ “I Don’t Get Tired” remix after the jump.
Tech N9ne’s highly-anticipated new album Special Effects is dropping soon and with the release date nearing (May 4) Tech N9ne is sharing another new track from the album. This time it’s with quite an unexpected feature. “Wither” features metal’s Slipknot frontman, Corey Taylor. It’s, well, interesting. Take a listen for yourself after the jump.
Summer is right around the corner so prepare for a ton of tracks popping up on the ‘net that give off a “banger” or “cruising” vibe. So far it looks like Rich Homie Quan’s “Flex” cut may be in the early lead for summer 2015 anthem but Plies recruits “Hot N***a” producer Jahlil Beats for “Dayum!” which also has that summer feel to it. Also, this is probably one of those rare Plies posts. Crazy how you don’t hear about him more often. Anyway, check out “Dayum!” from Plies after the jump.
Yesterday we shared a new Agallah track, “Rolling Stoned,” which is set to appear on the rapper’s forthcoming album Agalito’s Way, dropping May 5th. Now he returns with “Get Your Sh*t Together” featuring the legendary Big Daddy Kane. “Working with Kane was an honor and a dream of mines and I’m glad to have him rock on Agalito’s Way. He’s the O.G. Respect the Golden Era,” says Agallah. “If it wasn’t for cats like Kane and Rakim, I wouldn’t be a part of this culture the way I am.” Check out “Get Your Sh*t Together” after the jump.
