The Summer Knights EP bonus tracks might be a preview of Joey’s evolving sound, but this one is certainly within their jurisdiction of piano-laced boom-bappery. Nice features, too. That drops today, by the by.

Joey Bad offers this bonus cut “My Yout” from his soon-to-drop Summer Knights EP. It sounds like he’s had Distant Relatives and The Best Of Stephen Marley playing on repeat in the headphones. Not bad and certainly a step out of the boom-bap area where he got cozy for a while. Nice to hear the Pro Era leader going for uptempo rhythms.
French and Chinx jump on the outro track from Meek’s Dreamchasers 3 tape. If they’re actually pushing this as a Coke Boys single that’s the absolute epitome of laziness. But then again, that’s typically French’s modus operandi. (more…)
Two of NY’s finest, Kushed God and Harry Fraud, hook up for a new track, titled “Obey Your Thirst.” These two continue to bring the best out of each other. Meanwhile, look at DZA subtly campaigning for that Sprite deal like it’s ’94. (more…)
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…)
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…)
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…)
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.
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!
Oh you thought this was a joke? Nahhhhh. Flex premieres the heavily-speculated, lowly anticipated shemix to French’s street banger. Or the Kidz Bop version of “Ain’t Worried About Nothin.” Miley is the absolute, unequivocal worst. (more…)
This is Eminem carving his face on rap’s Mt. Olympus. This is Eminem striking down mortals with the hand of a lyrical super-being. This is Eminem on a quirky beat, twerking flows and generally proving that rhythm has no race and no confines. He still comes down to bless us occasionally. Off MMLP2.
Good, clean, inspirational hip-hop music. This is the kind of song borne from the struggles of a group almost disbanded due to life-threatening illnesses, real spit. Green Street returns with “New Beginnings,” now available on iTunes for download.
Heart just skipped three beats. Hipster Girls get at me.
Chance The Rapper and James Blake go riding round town with haunting vocal timbres as their guide.
