If you’re looking for some unadulterated gangsta rap sh*t look no further than Nipsey Hussle, one of West Coast’s unsung heroes during its sudden revival. And Nipsey has got you covered as he has just announced his new album Mailbox Money, which is due out December 20th. That’s the album cover above. In addition Nipsey Hussle is also sharing the album’s first single, “50 N***az.” However, if you want a physical copy of Mailbox Money you’re going to have to cough up some big bucks seeing as it’s a limited release with 100 total copies available and they’re being offered at $1000 each. Yowza! Anyway, peep Nipsey’s new track “50 N***az” after the jump.
Ty Dolla $ign knows one thing and one thing only: make hits. In 2014 the West Coast singer/rapper held his own with a string of co-writing credits for major chart-topping singles, including Chris Brown’s smash “Loyal”. Now Ty gets some help (as if he needed it to begin with) from big time music producer and overall hotshot, Diplo. In addition the underrated (but certainly not forgotten) DJ Dahi also receives production credit for “Stand For”. Listen after the jump!
Nipsey Hussle’s 2013 release Crenshaw is one of the most underrated projects of that year and thankfully the Spanish DJ duo Cookin’ Soul won’t let you forget about it as they reimagine “Don’t Forget Us” with a smooth and sexy Jodeci sample. Listen after the jump.
The wait is over as the young Long Beach emcee Vince Staples drops his new project, the Hell Can Wait EP on Def Jam.

Flying Lotus has shared the music video for his Kendrick Lamar featured track “Never Catch Me” from the forthcoming You’re Dead! album.

West Coast spitter Blu returns with the latest leak from his forthcoming double album, Good To Be Home, which is already a shoe-in contender for album cover of the year (yes, I know that it’s only May). The production on “The Return” crackles like a vintage 45 and is the perfect foreground for Blu to wax poetics on top of. Good To Be Home drops next Tuesday.
New visuals from the OG west coast legend Daz Dillinger. The beat on this one’s a banger!
