For this weeks #SundayStudDay Mike dropped the first and only single off of his upcoming joint mixtape with Huey Mack, Click. "School" has Mike and Huey trading bars about how far they've come in such a short time over a dope beat produced by Judge. If this is a sign of things to come Click should be a top notch project. Check out the Jon Kilmer Studios official video for "School" above and be on the lookout for Click dropping August 1st.

"There He Go" was easily one of my favorite tracks off of ScHoolboy Q's album Habits & Contradictions, so I was pumped to see he dropped the video for it today. The video was done by David Helman and filmed in Q's home state of California with his fellow TDE members by his side. Check out the video and download Habits & Contradictions on iTunes now.

It may seem that J. Cole went missing in action after the release of his debut album "Sideline Story". In a triumphant return to Twitter yesterday (hasn't said anything since April), the young MC takes his talents to Jay-Z / Kanye's single "Lift Off" (From Watch The Throne) to lay down some bars telling his fans that his new stuff is going to be well worth the wait. "The Cure" brings that signature J. Cole flair, featuring ill lyricism and one of the smoothest deliveries. If this is only a preview of what is to come, then I think we will all be in for a treat.
*First off, I've gotta give it up to Deane Flow for holding down the fort this past week. Absolutely killin it in my absence.
One of the most anticipated albums of the summer is set to come from the A$AP Mob. A$AP Rocky and crew took the hip-hop world by storm the past year and are ready to set it ablaze once again. Last night the Mob released their first single featuring BK's Flatbush Zombies, who's new mixtape was posted last night. There is only one way to describe a A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ant, Juice, and Meech collabo : Grimey. That is exactly what this track is, a straight grimey hip-hop single. You expect A$AP Rocky's verse to stand out (which it does), but the Zombies crush their verses showing they can hang with any MC.
Could there be a more fitting title of a song featuring these four? I think not.

The out-of-the-box hip-hop duo known as the Flatbush Zombies just released their debut mixtape D.R.U.G.S. and it is absolutely unreal. Along with their exclusive producer Erick Arc Elliot these two pump out unreal hip-hop tracks, both of their flow and wordplay are top notch and as usual they bring along their bravado, swag, and plenty of weed smoke. Here's what the Flatbush Zombies themselves had to say about the tape: "We made this over the past two years in a tiny ass bedroom studio in Flatbush, no labels no overlords telling us what sound to create. None of this was made for the love of $$$ just for the love of LOVE itself. So shut the fuck up and take these D.R.U.G.S." Listen to them, and listen to a selection of the tracks off the tape and download the full thing via the link below. Enjoy and check out the zombies on Facebook and Twitter as well.
In anticipation of the Tuesday drop of Rozay's newest album titled God Forgives, I Don't, the MMG head honcho dropped a track off the album assisted by Drake and MMG signee Wale. I'm pretty much shitting my pants in anticipation of this album drop, I heard it leaked online today but I was at work so I couldn't grab the download in time....don't worry I'll get over it. This track is unreal smooth, more of an R&B feel rather than the bass-heavy hip-hop you may expect to hear from Rozay. Wale throws in some dope bars and Drake provides yet another silky chorus. Check out "Diced Pineapples" and be on the lookout for God Forgives, I Don't dropping Tuesday.
Mr. J. Medeiros isn't a name you've heard on the site before but he just sent by the latest set of visuals for his track dedicated to his hometown of Colorado Springs titled "The Rockies". Although you may not have heard of Mr. J. Medeiros before he's not a new name on the scene. He's a super lyrical rapper and he puts a lot of his past life experiences in Colorado Springs straight into this track. I know Colorado Springs doesn't sound like a rough town but some of the things in this track will surprise you. Definitely more of a straight up hip-hop feel, Medeiros goes in over dope production from Stro Elliot. Check out the video for "The Rockies" above and enjoy.

Mikey Rocks of The Cool Kids dropped the latest leak off of his upcoming mixtape Lap Of Lux, a track titled "Can't Hide It" featuring MMG's latest signee Rockie Fresh. The production is dope and both Rockie and Mikey Rocks go in, Lap Of Lux drops August 2nd.
Wednesday, July 25, 2012
G-Eazy delivers with another dope track alongside female vocalist Johanna Fay. Combining G-Eazy's melodic flows with Johanna's airy vocals turns this track into a hit. Definitely a lyrical track that tells a story, G-Eazy is easily one of the top up-and-coming emcee's in the game, the New Orleans native has been killing it. Stream and download the track below.
Cuey hooks up with Chi Duly for the opening track off of Mick Boogie & Hypetrak's new mixtape they put together for the Olympics titled Represent The Stripes. This is a pretty epic mixtape that Mick and Hypetrak put together, it's got tracks from guys like Cuey, Action Bronson, and they were inspired to put it together by the Adidas #Represent campaign. Cuey goes in on this one, it's an old-school sounding instrumental that works with his flow and voice perfectly. Check it out below and check out the full mixtape here. Enjoy.
Just caught this video of AraabMUZIK performing his track "Streets Tonight" live at the Pitchfork Music Festival that just recently went down and couldn't not post it. There's not much out there like an AraabMUZIK live show, he performs all of his songs right on his MPC all live. The man can work an MPC better than the rest and it's evident in his live show. Check out the performance above and enjoy.
D-WHY's upcoming highly anticipated mixtape Don't Flatter Yourself is slated to drop August 15th, and today he released the first teaser of the mixtape with Jakob Owens productions that gives you a little taste of what to expect from the tape. I don't know if we've seen D-WHY with an acoustic guitar up until this point but his vocals actually sound really good in this acoustic teaser. Check out the preview above and judging by the fact that this says "teaser #1" I'm guessing we'll be getting another one very soon. Hit up D-WHY's Facebook and Twitter to stay up on all the updates and enjoy.
UPDATE: So as I finished writing this post D-WHY posted a new track on his Twitter that you have to hear. A little different vibe between this and the teaser but on this one D goes in on 2Chainz "Birthday Song" instrumental and murders it. Check it out below.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are some of the most unique artists in music right now. The inherent artistry in their music is unreal and they've really done all of this on their own, in a studio they built themselves nonetheless. They released a teaser for their upcoming debut LP The Heist and it got me unbelievable pumped to hear some new music from this Seattle duo. Check out the teaser for The Heist LP above and click the link below to download their newest track "Same Love" on iTunes, all the proceeds go to the fight for marriage equality in Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' home state of Washington.

To hold his fans over until his next project Cris Cab released his latest track "If You Only Had Today", another laid back reggae inspired jam. Cris has been doing big things recently, he performed at Santos Party House in NYC upon the release of his latest mixtape Echo Boom and was joined by some pretty big names. It's not often an up-and-coming artist brings out not only Pharrell but also Wyclef and Mavado for their mixtape release party, but Cris is not just any up-and-comer. He's gotten co-signs from some of the biggest names in the business and has worked with people in every sphere of the music world. Check out "If You Only Had Today" and download it below, and hit the jump to check out a recap video of the show at Santos Party House.
You may remember the indie band Xylos that we posted a little while ago with their infectious summer track "Summerlong".

This one is a little more high energy than "Summerlong" but it still has the airy indie vocals that indie fans love. Check out "Fiction In 4 Movies" below and enjoy.
One of the standout tracks on Timeflies' latest project, the Under The Influence mixtape, gets the visual treatment.

Huey Mack dropped this video yesterday as he neared 35k Twitter followers to commemorate how far he's come.

Archie posted the artwork for his new track "20% Cooler" on his facebook today and asked his fans to share it 100 times in order for the track to be released. He actually thought 100 might be a little high but it took a mere few hours and Archie has officially released the track, one of his biggest yet. Definitely more of an electro feel but with the airy synths of a trance track. Check it out and download it for free below. Enjoy.

Week 7 of the #SummerOfRad is upon us. Loggy, Josh, Big Red and their manager Alex released their newest track this week titled "Spread Your Wings". This is just feel-good music at it's finest, I don't think it's possible to listen to this track and not feel good coming away from it. I don't think any other artist or group has given their fans more dope music this summer than Radical Something. With seven quality tracks from the #SummerOfRad series and the official recording of "Letter To Our Friends" they gave you last week its unreal. At this point if you haven't gotten up on Radical Something you must be living under a rock. Check out "Spread Your Wings" above, download it below, and follow the Rad crew on Facebook and Twitter. Enjoy.

Masked UK producer SBTRKT released his latest track on his soundcloud today, a more airy sounding track tited "Gloss". This track has more spacey vibed undertones but still maintains the high-energy drums that you've come to expect from him. Definitely a track tailor made for the summertime. You're going to want to check this out. Wouldn't mind hearing someone lend their vocal talents to this one either, we'll just have to wait and see.
When you have a blog that specializes in introducing new up and coming talent like we do you get hundreds of submissions a day, so it's always hit or miss when you open an email whether it's going to be the next big thing or someone who should probably just quit making music altogether. When I opened the email for Tune In Crew I was extremely pleasantly surprised. Tune In Crew is a production duo consisting of Xavier and Harry Veynand out of Strasbourg, France who recently won a remix contest for Matisyahu's newest track "Sunshine". These two aren't you run of the mill electro producers, they experiment with several different genres and create some really eclectic remixes and original productions. Look no further than their winning remix of Matisyahu's "Sunshine". When producing a remix their aim is to "provide, with our own touch a different listening experience from the original superb song, while still staying coherent and musical in regards of the original artistic performance."
Their remix of "Sunshine" combines reggae, old-school hip-hop, and electro influences of today to create something completely original. Check out that remix and another original track by Tune In Crew below and follow them on Twitter and Soundcloud. Be on the lookout for more from this talented duo coming soon and enjoy.
The latest single off of Aer's upcoming album The Bright Side released last night along with the official MattMiGGZ directed video which released today. The Bright Side has quickly become one of my more highly anticipated projects of the year, these two have been absolutely killing it lately. From their self-produced laid-back instrumentals to their hooks and lyrics they can do no wrong. Their videos are some of my favorite being put out these days as well, they always fit the vibe of the song perfectly and they just looking they're having a damn good time. The leading ladies in the video aren't too bad at all, you really can't go wrong with a new Aer track especially during the summer time. Check out "Like The Way" above and click the link below to buy the song on iTunes. Keep an eye on their Facebook and Twitter and be on the lookout for The Bright Side dropping July 30th.

The production duo out of Miami that brought you the unbelievable Brooklyn.Chicago.London project, which brought together Jay-Z, Kanye and Adele samples, is back with their latest project completely dedicated to the one and only Kanye West. They took Kanye acapellas from a number of projects of his from 808s & Heartbreak to Watch The Throne, and crafted their own instrumentals to go with his impressive, hard-hitting lyricism. These two are really on another level with their music, they can give a song a completely different feel than the original had yet it still works perfectly. Look no further than their complete transformation of Kanye and Rhymefest's track "Brand New". This is definitely another project that you have to check out, listen to the full tracklist below and click the link below for the free download.
Cam Meekins released his latest track today, a remix to Atmosphere's "My Songs". Atmosphere was always one of my favorite hip-hop groups out growing up and Cam kills this instrumental. The old-school, 90's hip-hop sound works perfectly with Cam's flow. This is a gem indeed. Check it out, download it below, and follow Cam on Facebook and Twitter. Enjoy.
Probably one of the biggest collaborations released in a little while, Rick Ross enlists Jay and Dr. Dre to accompany him on a track off of his upcoming album God Forgives I Don't set to drop July 31st.

Every verse I hear from Kendrick impresses me more and more, he really can do no wrong at this point and Curren$y and Talib both kill it as well. Check out "Push Thru" and download it below. Enjoy.

Press play on the video above and enjoy the summer vibe that you've come to expect from Loggy, Cocktail and Big Red.

So Timeflies said they were taking a break from Timeflies Tuesdays for a while but the last two Tuesdays have been pretty damn good to Timeflies fans. First last week they hit us with the official video to their banger of a remix to Rihanna's "We Found Love" and now this week they drop a bomb on us in the form of a ridiculous six track mixtape titled Under The Influence. The things these two have accomplished in less than a year and a half are pretty unbelievable. They've amassed over 26 million views on their youtube channel, and over 82,000 facebook fans thanks to the ever popular Timeflies Tuesday's and took over the iTunes charts with their debut album The Scotch Tape.
According to Cal and Rez themselves, "The tape features some records we've wanted to sample for a while now, and we've had a really good time putting our own twist on these tracks. Being influenced by so many different artists along the way, a project like this just seemed inevitable." They are currently hard at work on an all original project so check out Under The Influence and enjoy some truly dope music while you wait for the next Timeflies project. I'm sure you can expect plenty more from Cal and Rez on Tuesdays in the future, for now check out a few tracks off the tape and download the full thing via the link below.

Chiddy and Xaphoon teamed up with Converse to release their newest track, and hard-hitting banger titled "Paper & Plastic". Chiddy goes off on this one, I haven't heard him go this hard in quite some time. Obviously the beat is unreal, Xaphoon is hands-down one of the best producers in hip-hop and when he's linked up with Chiddy it's always going to be fire. Check out "Paper & Plastic" below. Spotted this over at illRoots.
They also provide an amazing acoustic cover to fun.'s smash single "Some Nights". This cover includes Clark on lead vocals again, but you also get to hear Devin on Bass / Vox, Spencer on Percussion / Vox, and Jian on Guitar / Vox. Their version of "Some Nights" is so soothing, perfect for getting work done.
Stop Motion Poetry does not just perform covers though. They recently released an original track entitled "The Hit" about 3 months ago and it is another perfect melody. One of the most relaxing track I've heard in a while, "The Hit" is definitely a track you're going to want to download.
I ended up doing a little digging and found some unreal information about these guys. They have played shows with acts like Bruno Mars, The Lonely Forest , Kevin Hammond, Natasha Bedingfield, Angel Taylor and more. They've also secured a production deal with Mikal Blue (One Republic, Colbie Caillat) and co-authored songs with Jeff Cohen (Sugarland, Josh Groban), Justin Knox (Elliot Smith), Andrew Williams (Five for Fighting) and Mikal Blue (Co-Writer of the smash hit 'Bubbly'). Hell, these guys even built their own recording studio / live venue at their home in Modesto.

Archie's manager Alex just dropped off his latest track and it's another gem of a progressive house banger for you.

D-WHY is on a ridiculous streak lately. Gearing up for his highly anticipated release of his mixtape "Don't Flatter Yourself", he has worked with a plethora of artists and producers. He's also hinted at being in the studio with Hit-Boy (most notably the producer of "N*ggas in Paris) and Key Wane (Had Meek Mill / Drake "Amen" on repeatt). The one thing I love about D is his versatility. He's done everything from pop to indie and hip-hop. On his latest release, he teams up with CurT@!n$ to drop a hip-hop masterpiece. Over the me & the homie production, D-Why and CurT@!n$ drops some lyrical fashion knowledge. DFY is set to drop August 15th.
Childish Gambino is reaching another level. His latest mixtape "Royalty" was absolutely phenomenal. The actor-comedian-rapper is spitting harder then he ever has before. Over the last couple days, some tracks that didn't make the "Royalty" cut have been released. On "Sour Face", Gambino finds himself at home rapping with Black Hippy member Jay-Rock. By the way, looks like Gambino has teamed up with 3/4 of Black Hippy (Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul). One can only hope a Kendrick Lamar collabo is on deck right? On "Body" Gambeezy teams up with Prodigy and drops one of the hardest hitting tracks I've heard from him in a while. Check out both below:

It's all about liquor in the latest track from Compton spitter Kendrick Lamar. Unfortunately we have to wait until October for Kendrick's sophomore album to drop so lets hope there is more releases like this in our near future. Kendrick is one of, if not the best lyrically in the game right now and his ability to put together full songs is nearly unmatched. Check out the new track below and be on the lookout for more off of good kid m.A.A.d city which is due out October 2nd.
Joseph Somo hits us with his newest original track, a smooth track titled "Ride".

Mike Stud drops his newest track, the third installment in his #SundayStudDay series. This week he tries on the instrumental from Drake's "Still Fly" for size and murders it. This was a great choice for Mike for this week, his beat selection is pretty impeccable these days. He's gotten a lot of comparisons to Drake but this is the first time I've heard him go in over any Drake tracks and not only are his verses dope but his sound is smooth as hell on the hook as well. Check the remix out in the video above and be on the lookout for Click, Mike's upcoming mixtape with Huey Mack dropping August 1st.

KAM Royal released his newest project Still Waters today and it's a collection of some of his best work to date. Kam is kind of an anomaly in today's "college hip-hop" scene, his music has a dope old-school 90's hip-hop feel and his lyricism is always on point. Still Waters was entirely produced by Kid Vision whose production meshes with Kam's flow and vibe perfectly. Check out Still Waters in it's entirety below and be on the lookout for more from Kam coming soon. Word is he's going to start dropping videos off the project next week. Enjoy.

I'm a little late on this one but I had to share this one with you guys. Jon Bellion is Visionary Music Group's newest signee, joining an already established roster of Tayyib Ali and Logic. Jon is a 21 year old singer, songwriter and producer representing Long Island. He is not traditionally a cover artist but he wanted to put his own spin on Drake's track "The Motto" that took over the airwaves this year. He definitely has a style of his own, I can't even really pinpoint any one or two artists out there to compare him to. He has a dope R&B feel but there's definitely some reggae influence thrown in there and his sound is dope. Jon will be following this video with three original productions leading up to his mixtape Translations Through Speakers releasing later this year. Check out the cover video above and be on the lookout for more coming from Jon soon. This is definitely a name to look out for moving forward so make sure to hit him up on Facebook and Twitter to stay up on his future releases.
Cyhi drops his newest cut from his upcoming mixtape Ivy League Club dropping July 17th. It's been a while since I've heard anything new from Cyhi, he's become one of my favorite emcee's out. His flow is dope and really versatile. He's gone in over a ton of different styled beats in the past including dubstep beats, this time he takes on a beat that you may recognize from Breezy's mixtape Boy In Detention. Big Sean swags it out as always and Chris Brown manages to not ruin the track with his verse. Check out "100 Bottles" and download it below.
Henrix, fresh off the release of his dope remix to Temper Trap's "Sweet Disposition" I posted last week releases his huge new summer bootleg pack packed with seven dope house bootlegs that will be perfect for any party.

A lot of his music is so simple but the combination of dope samples and ridiculous original production from Xaphoon makes every remix and track he releases a work of art. The first remix he did is of Atlas Genius' "Trojans" and the second one is of Foxes cut "White Coats". Check the two remixes out below and download them now, these are must downloads.
Ellie released her newest single off of her upcoming album featuring UK pop-rap spitter Tinie Tempah. I don't think I've ever had a single complaint about an Ellie Goulding song. Whether it be one of her originals or one of the millions of remixes her tracks have recieved, you really can't go wrong with those vocals. Check out the new track below and be on the lookout for her new album coming soon. Enjoy.
Timeflies is taking a break from doing Timeflies Tuesdays but that didn't stop them from releasing this dope new track sampling one of the biggest hits of the year in Rihanna and Calvin Harris' "We Found Love". These two can do no wrong at this point, every one of their tracks is top notch and Rob is solidifying himself as one of the best producers in the game right now. Cal kills it as well and they released a video for the track as well done by Taylor Cut Films. If you haven't gotten to a Timeflies show yet I suggest you do that, they are unreal. Check out the video for "We Found Love" above and follow the boys on Facebook and Twitter. Download link is below.

Huey Mack dropped a gem tonight in a remix to Metric's "Help! I'm Alive". Huey has gotten pretty big in the last few months and his A Boy Named Hue mixtape was dope. This is another great track, definitely a different more serious vibe from Huey but he kills it nonetheless. Check it out and download it below. Enjoy.
As a music site, we pride ourselves on bringing the readers some of the freshest new music on the scene that you may have never heard before. LOUDPVCK is a dynamic duo that you're going to want to keep an eye on from here on out. Consisting of Kenny Blume and Ryan Marks, who met while studying at the Berklee College Of Music, LOUDPVCK's sound consists of a combination of hip-hop and electro instrumentals that have a head-bumping kick to them.
I've known Kenny since high school and he has become a rising talent on the production scene. He's made his impact on the smoking side of hip-hop providing trippy production for the likes of Smoke DZA, Kendrick Lamar, Dom Kennedy, Skeme and etc. Ryan Marks has made his impact on the electro side of the music scene. He was recently featured on a Diplo and Friends mix on BBC radio. Their combination of sounds is almost AraabMuzik's drums meet Diplo's electro-soul melodies. Their three singles from their self-titled EP can be heard below. One thing is for sure: they are all must downloads. I'm already feigning for more!
"Burner" is one of the hardest hitting beats I've heard in a long time, perfect driving music. I'm interested to see if they have anyone rap over these 3 extremely fresh pieces of production. I wouldn't hate to hear Fool's Gold MC Danny Brown over one of these.
If you're not down with Joe Cool you are out of your mind. One of our favorite new rappers to grace the scene, he provides some fresh new visuals to his self-produced bass thumpin' track "Paid". On "Paid", Joe rhymes over chopped-up sample of Skee-Lo’s classic one-hit-wonder “I Wish". His lyricism is always on point and his delivery flows so effortlessly.
Joe Cool takes us to his home town, Leesville, Louisiana, and raps about the everyday hustle & grind of being a young artist. The video was all performance; highlighting Joe Cool's clever rap lyrics & meshing it with the beat from snare to snare. #PAID represents the movement of the "New Louisiana!" Working everyday, trying to get paid!
Wiz let loose his newest track on twitter a little while ago (Twitter is a music goldmine if you pay attention). It's another dope one from Wiz with a spacey vibe to the Sledgren produced beat. Busta slows down his usually hyperspeed flow to match the vibe and still kills it. Wiz's sophomore album O.N.I.F.C. drops August 28. Shouts to illRoots for the post.
A little while ago me and Sean commented on how we thought MGK had taken the "most angry sounding rapper even when not trying to sound angry" title away from the legendary DMX. Well, today we get a video with BOTH MGK and DMX on a (predictably) angry, in your face instrumental and both of them (predictably) absolutely go in. Can't say I've heard much new material from DMX in a while, this one's filled with his classic "WHAT", "HUH" and "UGH" ad libs that will have you thinking it's 1999 again. Check out the video above, this track is off of DMX's upcoming album expected to drop later this year.
Alex from H-J Entertainment (Manager of electro producer Archie) hit us up with this new remix of Zedd's "Spectrum" that I just can't stop playing. This is part of the official remix competition beatport is holding for "Spectrum" and is currently crushing the Hypem charts. If this track isn't at least near the top of this beatport competition then the other tracks must have been produced by God himself. Savant killed this one with a drumstep-like buildup into a ridiculous drop and dope chorus. Check out the remix below and vote for Savant by clicking the "Vote Here" button on the player.
