It isn’t farfetched to infer that California native and producer extraordinaire Flying Lotus was inspired by Del The Funky Homosapien, Dan The Automator and Kid Koala’s ahead-of-its-time underground opus Deltron 3030. Now DJ Skarface has stepped to the forefront to reinterpret the classic album by mashing it up with various album cuts, demos and remixed from FlyLo.You can stream and download Deltron 1983 below. For those wondering, the “1983” in the title is an homage to the title of Flying Lotus’ debut album and it is also a reference to the year in which he was born.
A new Chief Keef project has arrived. After sharing a trio of tracks "Chicago Zoo," "Get Your Mind Right," and "Who Dat" last week, Sosa returns with Finally Rolling 2 -- his long-gestating new mixtape -- as promised. The new mixtape features eighteen tracks and finds Keef rapping over Future and Drake's smash hit "Where Ya At," Lil Wayne and Birdman's "Stuntin' Like My Daddy" (which is "Stuntin Like My Mama" on Finally Rolling 2), and much more. Stream and download Chief Keef's Finally Rolling 2 after the jump.
Not sure if anyone reading this is looking out for B.o.B anymore but he's just released a new project -- a mixtape -- entitled Psycadelik Thoughtz. PT (because I vehemently refuse to repeat that album title again) is B.o.B's first full-length project since January's uneven No Genre: The Label mixtape. Here B.o.B offers up eleven new tracks (including the previously released single "Back & Forth") with approximately two guest spots -- neither of which pertain to hip hop, exactly. If you're one of those people still checking in for some new Bobby Ray then this latest project, PT, is right for you. Check it out after the jump. It's also currently available on iTunes.
Wu-Tang Clan's very own U-God is hosting a mixtape over at Baller Status called Digital Dynasty 36 which showcases tracks from rising newcomers and established artists, as well as exclusive cuts from U-God.
