Many of our readers probably aren’t very familiar with DJ Spinn or even DJ Rashad — but they ought to be! DJ Spinn and DJ Rashad make music simply known as ‘juke’ and ‘footwork’. Both styles of music originate from Chicago, a city where Spinn and Rashad are from. DJ Rashad dropped his critically-acclaimed album, Double Cup, at the tail-end of 2013, the same year Danny Brown — a rapper from the neighboring Detroit — released his album Old. Since then DJ Rashad tragically passed away, at the tender age of 34. His career was booming and he was quickly gaining recognition across the world but sadly God called him home early. Now, Danny Brown is teaming up with DJ Spinn for “Dubby,” a track that will appear on Off the Loud — the duo’s collaborative EP — on Hyperdub (a popular electronic music label out of the UK). As far as Danny goes: Well, he’s supposed to be dropping a new album later this year. Check out “Dubby” after the jump.

Chinx’ debut album, Welcome to JFK, has been released. Sadly, he couldn’t be here to see it. Chinx, the Queens rapper and Coke Boyz affiliate, was tragically shot and killed this past May in his Jamaica, Queens. But, life goes on and we have his music here to keep us comfortable. And Rick Ross and Meet Sims have Chinx’ back on the official remix of “On Your Body,” which appears on the aforementioned Welcome to JFK. Listen to the remix with Rozay and Sims after the jump.

I was worried for a second there. Waka Flocka Flame — the once unassuming weed carrer (or shooter) in Gucci Mane’s 1017 Brick Squad camp — released his debut album Flockaveli five years ago and has been dropping turds since. He was supposed to come out with the second installment, like, ten times already. But, sadly, it’s constantly pushed back. (Maybe with good reason?) Everything that was going to be on Flockaveli 2 was scrapped and now we’re getting this new track called “Workin'” which sounds like classic Waka. Basically that means I am happily satisfied. The end. Listen to “Workin'” by Waka Flocka after the jump.

Are you like me: Sitting around patiently awaiting the release of some new Jay Rock? Well, I’ve got some great news — no, it’s not out. But apparently Rock held a listening session for his forthcoming studio album, which remains untitled. So, it looks as though the release of an album for Rock is approaching. (It’s worth noting: There will be track called “Vice City,” which if anything like the video game, will be slamming.) And if you weren’t bumping the hell out of “90059” already, then check out this video for the track. After the jump!

New Music: Vic Mensa – “I Been”

vic-mensa-i-been

Vic Mensa is one confused artist: There are too many hands in the cookie jar. For one, his INNANETAPE project from 2013 positioned Mensa as an artist ready to blow without the necessity of conformity. And now — with two years removed from his breakout tape — he’s nothing but a conformist and corporate shrill. (This pain’s me to say, by the way.) Or, at least that’s the vibe he’s been giving off with his last few tracks. For starters, Mensa signing with Jay Z’s highly-questionable Roc Nation label was bad move, albeit very smart; ever since the signing he’s been making some abysmal moves musically speaking and his trajectory is noticeably… out of the ordinary, too. The highly-anticipated “U Mad” with Kanye West basically flopped and sounded like some terrible Steve Aoki sh*t from 2012. Then he dropped nonsense like “No Chill,” which I’ve yet to hear because, well, didn’t you see the song’s internet meme-baiting title? No thanks. He’s probably released more music since but I’m over it. And here’s yet another Roc Nation-era Vic Mensa cut — it’s called “I Been.” I haven’t listened yet but don’t let my opinion on him sway you from peeping “I Been” after the jump.

Rich Homie Quan returns with “Bankroll,” after sharing “Break Table” a few days ago. Both cuts appear to be loosies and don’t have a home. And maybe Quan should keep it that way — he hasn’t had a solid project since his collaboration with Young Thug and Birdman on Rich Gang: Tha Tour, Pt. 1 last year. Peep Quan’s “Bankroll” after the jump.

50cent-9shots

50 Cent recently debuted a new track at an NYC rooftop party. That track, “9 Shots,” is now getting a proper release via iTunes. In addition, it appears as though his long-gestating, seemingly-shelved album Street King Immortal will be getting a release after all. Who knows when, though? Your guess is as good as mine. Check out 50’s latest offering, “9 Shots,” after the jump!
