Gucci Clause rings in the 10/17 holiday by dropping off a new track entitled “Celebrity,” produced by Metro Boomin. Guwop continues to release some of the most consistent, under-appreciated rap music of 2013. (more…)
Trademark Da Skydiver’s highly-anticipated album, Flamingo Barnes 2: Mingo Royale hits stores on November 19th. Until then, Trade is lacing us with the album’s first single featuring the Nevada spitter, Dizzy Wright. (more…)
The homey Kiese Laymon over at Gawker put me on to this song “Stop And Frisk.” Young emcees spitting about socially relevant issues in an election year? I’m in. Listen to a tale of police and state-sponsored discrimination told from two very different sides of the spectrum. Then, share that wealth.
Spitta reunites with Weezy and Birdman for a new track entitled “442,” produced by Monsta Beatz. No idea where this track will end up, but hearing Curren$y and Wayne rapping together once again, certainly is a thing of beauty. (more…)
Came Thru/Easily (feat. Mac Miller & Ab-Soul) from Chuck Inglish on Myspace. Chuck Inglish is now a solo artist but probably still a Cool Kid, by most accounts. This blazing visual features Ab-Soul and Mac Miller in a drug-influenced trio of wacky rap. The former Cool Kid and producer impresario might have something on his hands if he can keep corralling rappers to fit his drop-heavy beats.
With less than a week to go until the release of Suffering From Success, Khaled has generous enough to leak a good portion of the album, which is akin to the dude that stands on the side of the highway dressed in a giant sandwich costume and hands out coupons for free Subway. However, this cut is actually good. (more…)
French Montana with a baby tiger in each hand? Now I can start my day! Off Excuse My French.
Alas, the full TDE cypher from the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards. Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, & Isaiah Rashad join K.Dot to rip the “Shook Ones” instrumental to shreds. (more…)
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.
Rocky and Kathy Griffin talk about banging each other, gangbanging, fantasy threesomes, and buckets of sizzurp for nine minutes. Did I mention I love the internet?
The universe’s softest rap beef has officially emerged. (more…)
From their Step Brothers 2 project, Starlito and Don Trip premiere “Paper, Rock, Scissors” as if to say ‘this is mere child’s play.’ Take that, rappers!
