From Rae’s Throwback Thursday series is this gem remix of a Luther jam. His TBT tribute are like the best cross between the music your auntie played at the barbecue and the tunes you snuck off to listen to with your cousin in the den. It’s kind of criminal how good he is at rhyming, even over these smoothed out retro R&B tracks. Listen after the jump.

The corner boy from uptown with a solicitation for potential customers to buy his product, that soft white stuff. His aggressive screaming style here is startling. It’s probably better for him not to sound so mean, but this is rap and he has to. He even put his number on the track but we checked and it’s out of service. Gonna have to get your white girl elsewhere. Track after the jump.

The mystery heightens. Here’s new music from emerging lyrical brightness Y.O.D. also known as The Guy People Can’t Tell Is Nas Or Not. The song’s art work also hints at the first appearance of the elusive Droog, who has people so convinced he is Nas that they make angry internet videos against anyone who believes otherwise. This interpolation of “The Message” gives a clearer view of him as a distinct artist, even with the God’s Son flow hanging all over his body. Check it after the jump.

A$AP Mob has so many low-key lyricists wrapped in their gangster packaging it’s always thrilling when they partner with other hidden scribes like Waka. Check out the EDM remix of “Murda Something” and call your local precinct to make sure everyone’s safe. After the jump.

Future stumbles into the Chanel store just long enough to make this song-length ad for it. Young Thug joins on this clumsy track dedicated to saying the name of the leather giant as many times as possible. Silently wishing we could listen to only the production by itself. Check the track after the jump.

A couple years back, everyone thought Joey Bada$$ was the one to watch from Brooklyn. He did Golden Era husky rap like few in his bracket. But then the Underachievers bombarded the scene with Indigoism showing shades of another great rap duo in Outkast but with the gruffness of Black Moon and Boot Camp. This is a preview of their soon-to-debut album. Listen after the jump.
