2 Chainz and Kanye teamed up to release the official video for their collaborative track "Birthday Song". 2 Chainz is growing on me with every release, his debut album Based On A TRU Story shot to the top of the billboard charts about a week ago. The video takes place at a hell of a backyard barbecue, but you might want to wait to click play if you're at work...unless of course your employer doesn't mind you looking at "big booty hoes" on the job. Enjoy.
Never one to shy away from controversial topics, Brother Ali just dropped his latest politically charged video for the titled track off of his upcoming album Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color. Brother Ali is one of my favorite rappers of all time, he's got such a unique delivery and voice. There's really no one else in the game who you can compare him to. "Forest Whittaker" and "Take Me Home" are still two of the most played songs on my iPod and this album should be dope. Check out the video above and be on the lookout for Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color dropping 9/18. The track is available for purchase on iTunes now.

There's just too much swag in this video I almost can't handle it. There's an adult pair of Batman footie pajamas, and too many flashy, ridiculous fur coats to count. I almost don't have to say anything more. If you don't want to watch it after reading about adult batman footie pajamas I don't know whats wrong with you. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are unstoppable at this point, "Thrift Store" is another unreal production off of their upcoming album The Heist. Check out the epic official video for the track above and be on the lookout for The Heist dropping October 19th. Click the link below to purchase "Thrift Shop" on iTunes.

So I haven't really been able to find much today as far as music goes, haven't really looked that hard but I got shit to do ok? ok. I did, however, come across this new series Noisey is doing called 24 Hours With Odd Future In NYC. It's entertaining to say the least, these kids just really don't give a fuck about anything. Watch as they make noises at tourists in episode 1, and check out a Frank Ocean live performance in episode 2. Definitely a sick look in at the lives of these young, successful artists. Check out both episodes of the series above and enjoy.
Big Sean announced he was dropping his newest mixtape Detroit on September 5th and today took to his twitter to announce he would be dropping a few previews in the next few days. He asked his fans if they wanted some of that "real-life shit", something where he's "super spittin" or some "player shit". Clearly what we have here is some of that "player shit". Big Sean swags it out like only he knows in this preview clip for his track "How I Feel" which was directed by Mike Waxx and Mike Carson. Word is via his twitter that he'll be dropping a preview of another track featuring J. Cole on Friday and another next week prior to the release of the tape. So hit up Sean's Facebook and Twitter to stay up on all the Detroit updates, the full project drops September 5th.

I've never been the biggest dubstep fan but Adventure Club tracks always get me after the first listen. They have a way of preserving the vibe of the original track while making it completely upbeat and their own yet not over-done in the slightest. This track might just be one of their best yet, this is a must download for any fan of electro music. Check it out and grab the free download below.

I've never previously heard of Nause but I spotted this one posted by the homies over at Electronica Oasis and was hooked. Nause is a Swedish progressive house producer and "Hungry Hearts" is a dope vocal edit to his previously released piano driven instrumental "Mellow". The vocals add a great touch to the track that has a dope lighthearted but still driving drop and bass line. Check it out below, the track is available for purchase on beatport now.
Just caught this interview with Joey Bada$$ and his entire Pro Era crew done by the crew over at Pitchfork TV. Joey has been blowing up lately, the 17 year old MC out of Brooklyn is being heralded as another young gun who could bring New York hip-hop back and his 1999 mixtape was huge. Watch the interview as Joey and his crew discuss the very topic of NYC hip-hop, how they can redefine it, and they drop a quick freestyle as well. Check it out for yourself above.
Another innovative hip-hop duo released some new music today, Seattle's Macklemore & Ryan Lewis just dropped their epic new track off of their upcoming LP The Heist. "Thrift Shop" is another geniusly crafted beat from Ryan Lewis, it's a bass and horn driven beat that works perfectly with Macklemore's quick, lyrically dense flow. That also might be some of the best album artwork I've seen in a while, not many people can rock a coat that makes you look like a lion on a baby blue scooter and still look fly. You can't teach style like that. Unfortunately Macklemore & Ryan did not make the player on soundcloud embeddable but you can click the link below to stream "Thrift Store", and it will be available on iTunes tonight. Be on the lookout for the official video for the single dropping tomorrow, and The Heist will be released independently on 10/19. Enjoy.
Stream: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Thrift Store on Soundcloud
UPDATE: Saw this quote from Macklemore about his expertise in Thrift shopping and couldn't not include it:
“I am the most prolific thrift shopper in the rap game right now. What Bob Barker is to the Price Is Right, I am to used fringe jackets. My collection is worth anywhere between $70 and a $100,000,000 depending on who’s appraising it. I’m gonna be honest, if it’s me…. I’m going with a million. Count the zero’s. That’s how many fur jackets I have. Tell PETA my Mink, Fox, Rabbit, Coyote, and Hungarian Raccoon jacket are ALL dragging on the floor. And I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way. I love my animals. But they’re dead. And they’ve been dead for hella. When I wear them, I’m bringing them back to life and introducing them to a whole new generation who wasn’t around when they were out in the woods doing their thing. Those animals have now migrated from some old lady’s closet, to a thrift shop and are now getting their proper shine, up to 40 years later. It’s recycling. And recycling is beautiful, am I right? That’s what this song is about.” - Macklemore
Can't argue with that.....
So way back in March I posted a track from Avicii that I had found a radio rip for called "Last Dance". I thought about not posting it cause it was short and seemed pretty unfinished but I just went with my lifelong motto of "fuck it" and did it anyway. Well here I am sitting here in August bored shitless waiting for that glorious move-in day to arrive and what do I find but a much more "final" version of the Avicii track "Last Dance" courtesy of Hypefloats. The whistle makes much more sense on this version and sounds way better, check it out for yourself and grab the download below.
One of Pharrell's latest discoveries, young Compton MC Buddy, dropped his latest cut today. "Inspired" is a silky smooth track produced by Pharrell himself, who signed Buddy to his I Am Other label late last year. Buddy hasn't really had it for me ever since his unreal first release "Awesome Awesome" but I can definitely see this one growing on me. Give it a listen below.

Cam Meekins dropped his latest track, titled "Music Man", last night and it's another dope track from Cam laced with that old-school, 90's hip-hop feel. "Sharks" is still on repeat for me over a week later, and I can see this track getting heavily played in my car. Check out "Music Man", download it below and enjoy.

Kinetics & One Love's long awaited album You Are Not Alone finally dropped last night on iTunes and it is by far their best work yet. From the production from One Love to the eloquent lyricism from Kinetics, this is an extremely impressive body of work from two of the best up-and-coming artists in the game. Kinetics & One Love have gained some heavy notoriety in the music business as songwriters, they were nominated for a Grammy for their work on B.o.B's "Airplanes" and recieved songwriting credits on his past album Strange Clouds, but this album is essentially their reintroduction to the world as artists. It is by far their most polished work yet and Kinetics is truly at the top of his game lyrically. This is a must download project for any music fan, click the first link below to check out a preview of some tracks off the album on soundcloud (Including a free download of the "Still Dreaming" remix featuring one of my favorite rappers of all time, Jadakiss) and hit the second link to download the album on iTunes. Enjoy.

The tape features a long list of features including Jim Jones, Raekwon, Danny Brown and more. Definitely a project you're going to want to check out, the mob is taking over. Give it a listen below and be on the lookout for more coming from Rocky and the Mob, LongLiveA$AP drops October 31st.

Just spotted this Mumford & Sons remix posted over at gmad and couldn't hold it back. I've never really heard a remix like this, Hobotech labels this one folk-step. I don't know what it is but the mixture of the electro production and folk vocals and instrumentals works extremely well. Check it out for yourself and download it via Hobotech's website. Enjoy.
Hoodie released his newest track that he and his producer RJF cooked up for the fans as a thanks for all of the support he's gotten in the past few months. His All American EP shot to the top of the iTunes charts, he just capped a European tour and is now preparing for a huge fall tour with G-Eazy. It's good to be Hoodie Allen these days thats for sure. Check out his new track, download it and enjoy.

French electro production prodigy Madeon had one of his newest tracks premiered on BBC's radio one the other day and it's another unbelievable track from the 18 year old DJ. Vocals from Zak Waters set the song off perfectly, this is a must download. Check it out for yourself and download it below, wouldn't be surprised to see this one make some waves on mainstream American radio. The official release should be coming soon.

Radical Something comes through with their last release of their #SummerOfRad series, an epic video for their new track "Naked In Venice". This is the best video I've seen from them ever and maybe their best release of the summer. Perez Hilton had the premiere of the video, definitely a big thing for Loggy, Josh and Big Red. Check out the video above and hit up their facebook to hear the rest of the #SummerOfRad releases. Watch the video, which was apparently directed by Shannen Doherty, after the jump and enjoy.

I seem to be one of the only people in the blog world that isn't sold on Chief Keef just yet. The "I Don't Like" remix Kanye did was unreal and the original track was quality as well, but I don't think it deserves half of the recognition it's getting him. He already signed a major label deal and is being praised as the next big emcee out of Chicago, but I haven't heard much after that to ensure he won't be a one-hit-wonder or (worst case scenario) the next Soulja Boy. This new track has a dope beat and Keef's flow is nice but theres just something missing for me. He is only 17 after all, so we'll just have to wait and see what the world has in store for Chief Keef in the future. Check out the track and be on the lookout for his mixtape Finally Rich coming soon, Bang Bang.
Accent teamed up with Kid Vision to bring you his latest single titled "The One I Need". You may recognize Accent from his features on Kinetics' latest mixtape With A Little Help From My Friends, or his I Love Nujabes tape we posted a little while ago. He's a bonafide lyrical genius from the Lower East Side and he's been gaining a lot of exposure in the blog scene lately. He murders this old-school, soulful sounding beat produced by Kid Vision who has been making some moves himself lately as well. Check it out for yourself and download it below.

Here we have the newest edition of #SundayStudDay, in this one Mike tackles Ed Sheeran's "A-Team". A lot of people were quick to label, and pigeon hole Mike when he first came up and knocked his versatility. Well I think it's safe to say after all of these #SundayStudDay releases that there's no need to question him any longer on that subject. So far he's remixed a classic hip-hop track in "Tipsy", several different indie tracks and he even touched Bieber's "Boyfriend" earlier in the year. The man can do it all, check out the latest edition above and be on the lookout for more coming from Mike next week.

Wiz dropped this star-studded remix a little bit ago to his lead single off of his upcoming sophomore album O.N.I.F.C. It's tough to ignore those names on the feature, Lil Wayne and Jeezy go in over the Stargate produced "Work Hard Play Hard" instrumental. Check out the track below and download it on iTunes. Enjoy.

Here's the official video for Lupe Fiasco's single "Bitch Bad" off of his upcoming album Food & Liquor II. It's a really interesting concept for this video, listen to Lupe recite his bars while his words are literally acted out in front of him. Check it out and be on the lookout for Food & Liquor II dropping Sept 25th. Enjoy.

Mike Stud and Huey Mack had a little extra time at the roosevelt hotel to film this video for their track, off of their Click mixtape, titled "Envy". If you haven't checked out Click yet I suggest you do that, it's a solid project from these two frat rap heavyweights. Check out the video above and click the link below to download the full mixtape.
Here's Slaughterhouse's latest Eminem assisted track. It's another leak off of their upcoming album Welcome To: Our House, the majority of which is produced by Em himself.

Game drops the audio for his first single off of his upcoming fifth studio album F.I.V.E. with a hell of a supporting cast. It's only a radio rip for now but be on the lookout for the official single, I'll update the post with a CDQ version as soon as I get my hands on it. Check out "Celebration" and download it below. Enjoy.

Stereoshock is another house producer who I had seen around before but for some reason had never checked out one of his tracks. Well he emailed us recently and told me to check out his new big room house edit titled "How We Do Time" and it blew me away. With a solid vocal buildup into a powerful drop this track is everything a big room or progressive house fan is looking for. Give it a listen and grab it for free below.
Astro Coast is definitely a little different from what I usually post on the site but these songs are so perfect for the summer I couldn't not post it. My friend Hunter introduced me to Astro Coast and I didn't really know what to expect but I was really impressed. This EP is four encapsulating instrumentals with really laid back, almost folky melodies. Definitely worth a listen, check it out and download the whole EP below for free. Enjoy.
Nicky Romero released the official preview for his massive new track with fellow super producer Calvin Harris. It's only a two minute preview of the track but this one is going to be huge, the vocals leading up to an incredible drop make for an all around quality track. Check it out and be on the lookout for the full release of "Iron" in a week.
This song has been circulating the internet for the last day or so as just a Kendrick & Frank Ocean collab but Kendrick took to his twitter to confirm that it was Mann's track with features from himself and Frank. The track starts off a little everywhere but once Kendrick's verse drops in it's only up from there. Check out this dope collab and download it below. Enjoy.
MGK releases the official video for the deepest song off of his EST 4 Life mixtape that he released last week. These are the types of tracks I like to hear most from MGK, he can get a little wild but when he slows it down over a beat like this he definitely shines. Check out the video above and click the link below to check out the EST 4 Life Mixtape if you havent already.
Not many embody that quality over quantity mindset I was talking about yesterday more than Skizzy Mars. He's been pretty sporadic with his releases over the past year and I feel like we've been waiting for his debut mixtape Phases to drop for two summers now, but every time I start to get fed up with the wait in between tracks he drops one and makes all of that go away. Last night he dropped his latest track "High School Girls", and word is it's the beginning of a new series he'll be doing called "Happy Mondays". Skizzy hits you with a more melodic flow on this track, definitely a change-up from that classic Skizzy flow but it's still a quality track. Check it out and download "High School Girls" below.

Big Sean announced tonight that he'll be dropping a mixtape prior to the release of his next album, which he has been quoted as saying is his best work yet. The mixtape, titled Detroit, is dropping September 5th and Sean said it won't be like his album tracks or like his work on G.O.O.D Music's Cruel Summer Compilation but I'm not going to complain one bit about another Big Sean mixtape. He's another dude who has always seemed to shine on his mixtapes so Sept. 5th cannot come soon enough. Check out the announcement video above and be on the lookout for Detroit.
The albino underground legend Brother Ali released this track recently over the beat from Rick Ross, Jay-Z and Dre's track "3 Kings" off of Ross' God Forgives, I Don't. Any day with a new release from Brother Ali is a good day for me. "Forrest Whitaker" might be my one of my favorite songs of all time, and Ali shows he's definitely still got it on this one. Check it out, download it and enjoy.
"Best verse on a song I ain't even on, it's even now, 4th King never steer you wrong"
I don't want to like Sammy's music, in fact I'd say every part of me wants to hate it and call this dude garbage but I just can't do it. It's not any deep, lyrical hip-hop thats going to blow your mind.....but damn is it catchy. He's become like a crossover rapper/pop-star, and this is his latest single off of his still-yet-to-be-named (or given a release date for that matter) Sony/RCA debut album. The single will be available on iTunes tomorrow, and check out Sammy's latest pre-album mixtape OK COOL if you haven't already. Again, it's not going to be any deep, lyrical shit, but if it doesn't make you move in the slightest...you might not have a pulse.
Cris Cab throws his fans a bone as they wait for some new material from the young Miami native. Cris has been buzzing in the music business ever since the release of his extremely successful Echo Boom mixtape back in January and is currently working on future projects as well. To hold over the fans, today he released a FREE Live album which was recorded at Cris' July 26th concert at Grand Central in his hometown of Miami. Live albums can usually go either way but Cris' voice sounds great on this one, it'll make you want to buy tickets to see him in concert as soon as you can. Check it out, download it below for free and enjoy.
I can't say I'd heard any of Project 46's work before pressing play on this track but I will definitely be listening to more of it after. Project 46 is a house production duo made up of Canadians Ryan Henderson and Thomas Shaw and this is their latest single with Dubvision and vocals courtesy of Donna Lewis. This track was already featured as the #1 track on Sander Van Doorn's podcast and was featured on Thomas Gold's radio show as well. Check out "You & I" below and be on the lookout for the official release with SPINNIN records on 9/17. Also check out Project 46's Soundcloud to hear all their past work. Enjoy.

One of the more talented trios in the game, The Dean's List, dropped their latest masterpiece in the form of the second single off of their upcoming album Jerusalem which drops on 9/17.
Consistency is something that is not often seen these days in music. It seems like everyone is always talking about how someone fell off, or how one project just isn't the same as their last. Aside from Logic, I don't think there's a single up-and-coming artist in the game who has been as consistently great as Sonny Shottz and The Dean's List. Every track they release is top notch from the production, to the verses, all the way down to the mixing. It's refreshing to see a group like this emphasize quality over quantity, and I'm definitely looking forward to hearing more from The Dean's List moving forward. Check out "Hennessy At Cookouts" and download it below, be on the lookout for Jerusalem dropping September 17th.

Wiz's Taylor Gang compadre Chevy Woods released his latest track today, a trippy sounding track titled "As She Sings". Chevy has been getting out of Wiz's shadow more and more in the past few months and is beginning to come into his own. His Gangland mixtape was dope and he lays down solid verses over this beat produced by Ricky P. It takes a little to get going at the beginning but stick it out and you won't be disappointed. Check it out and download it below courtesy of illRoots.
Labels: Laid Back
Here we have the second to last installment in Radical Something's #SummerOfRad series, another laid back track about the groups favorite local spot titled "Cutty Spot".

Tyga drops his newest mixtape effort Well Done 3 in anticipation of his upcoming album Hotel California. Tyga has always been more of a mixtape rapper to me.

Enjoy.
Here's the newest video from PNW rap group The Good Husbands.

Hit-Boy releases his second video for his second ever track as a rapper, "Old School Caddy" which features KiD CuDi. Hit-Boy has been super impressive in his debut as a rapper, if you didn't check out his mixtape HITstory that's something you should do immediately. Check out the video above and download HITstory below if you haven't already.
Now this is what im talking about right now. For Kendrick's addition to TDE Fam Appreciation week he drops a new track with Young Jeezy titled "Westside, Right On Time". Kendrick is the definition of a living legend, his upcoming album good kid m.A.A.d city will be easily the project of the year. The sample that Canei Finch used on this track is dope and Jeezy and K.Dot both go in. Check out "Westside, Right On Time" below and enjoy.
I know you all remember Shav & Mentos the rapper/singer duo out of Colgate University who I introduced you to not too long ago. Well a little while ago they released their debut EP titled The Circus Room, named after their dorm room at Colgate that brought this group together. Keshav Garg and Aaron Mentos were paired together at random their freshman year only to find out that not only were they both vocalists but they were both multi-instrumentalists. They recorded their first song "Carelessly" on the first day they were together and the rest is history. These two take responsibility for every aspect of every song they make including the writing, instrumentals, production, and mixing of all of the music. Their two voices work really well together, Shav's singing and guitar blend perfectly with Mentos' raps and bass while they seamlessly blend together hip-hop, jazz, soul and reggae. These two are definitely going places, check out their debut EP and download the full project below.

I know you all remember LOUDPVCK who Sean introduced you to not too long ago. Well the trap music duo has been buzzing ever since their LOUDPVCK EP dropped, and they've been getting cosigns and interest from some of the biggest names in hip-hop. Half of LOUDPVCK, Kenny Blume aka Kenny Beats, has clearly been making some moves as he handles the boards on ScHoolboy Q's latest single "Party". I can't think of a single MC I've been more into in the last few months than ScHoolboy. The dude kills everything he's on and has a really unique flow and delivery that keep me pressing play over and over. And who else can rock bucket hats like him? No one...thats who. Check out "Party" produced by Kenny Beats and download it below. This is a must download for any hip-hop fan.

T.I. releases the visuals for his latest single "Go Get It" off of his upcoming album Trouble Man. I've been a big fan of all of T.I.'s recent releases even though they haven't really caught on with mainstream radio. Check out the latest single and Alex Nazari video above for yourself and enjoy. Trouble Man is coming soon.
The first leak off of Kinetics & One Love's highly anticipated album You Are Not Alone is here and damn is it dope. From production to the hook to the verses, every aspect of this song is murdered. "Still Dreamin'" features a tight verse from Boston's Termanology as well. The thing that most impresses me about Kinetics is his ability to carry a full song. Some may not notice but that's a really rare thing these days. A lot of dudes can deliver solid verses but then they lose me on the hook, but Kinetics kills every hook he's on as well as being one of the more intricate lyricists in the game. And of course you can never go wrong with some top notch production from One Love who is a genius on the boards. You Are Not Alone will be one of the projects of the year. Check out the video for "Still Dreamin'", which was shot in NYC and features cameos from Freeway, Reks and Statik Selektah above and be on the lookout for You Are Not Alone dropping 8/28. Also if you haven't download Kinetics latest mixtape With A Little Help From My Friends you can do so below by checking out their website. Enjoy!

DJ Khaled can assemble a crew like no other and he shows that yet again on this track with J.Cole, Big K.R.I.T. and Kendrick titled "They Ready" that he premiered on Funk Flex's radio show. I'm having a hard time picking a favorite verse on this track, all three of them absolutely murder their verses, this is a must download. Check it out below.
I've been waiting to get a full project out of D-WHY ever since I first heard "Shooter McGavin" and watched his countless dope videos, and today is the day. Don't Flatter Yourself, D-WHY's long awaited debut free album dropped tonight and it is some of his best work yet. There's two features on the tape from Hit Boy and Casey Veggies, and production from the likes of Boi 1da, Hit Boy, and Dot Da Genius. It's a really well rounded project with tracks where D goes in over bass-heavy hip hop beats, and other songs that are smoother with D-WHY showing off his vocal abilities. Check out a selection of tracks off the tape and download the full tape below on LiveMixtapes. Also check out the short film for "New York Times" after the jump if you haven't already.
I think we've come across the rap crew that is going to take over the world one day and they just want to let you know just how much they love Hot Cheetos & Takis on their newest song titled...you guessed it, "Hot Cheetos & Takis". Complete with their own little Danny Brown-Waka Flocka hybrid all 6 of these kids actually kill it haha. The only thing I'm left thinking after this song is done is "What the fuck is a Taki??" These kids seem to be on their snack game, and if they love them enough to make a song about them I need to get familiar.
If you have any input on that burning question let us know in the comments. If not...SNACK SNACK SNACK...CRUNCH!!!!
Timeflies recently released the first episode of their new Clockumentary series that gives you a little behind the scenes look to their extremely fast rise to prominence. It really is unbelievable how fast these two have become so big. From when we first started posting their music that was recorded in god knows where at Tufts, to today where they now have 86,000 Facebook fans and millions of youtube views, it's been pretty amazing to watch it all happen from the beginning. Check out the first episode of Clockumentary above and be on the lookout for more coming from Cal and Rez soon. Also hit up their facebook below to check out their dates for the One Night Tour.

Maybach Music Group shows that Mercedes discontinuing the Maybach line wont slow them down as they assemble quite the crew for the remix to their track "Bag Of Money" off of Self Made 2. I half thought T-Pain had slowly faded into oblivion but here he is on this track alongside Wale, Lil Wayne and French Montana among others. Check out the remix and enjoy.
Chuck Rever goes in over a dubstep beat for his latest track Power Rangers off of his upcoming debut mixtape Better Late Than Never. These last few tracks Chuck has released have been his best yet so I'm definitely looking forward to hearing this full project. The beat for this one was produced by fellow NXT LVL Music group artist KodiaK. Check it out and download it below.

The puzzling rap trio that is Three Loco just released the video for their Diplo assissted track "We Are Farmers" and they just continue to amaze me. I'm still not 100% sure if Riff Raff is dead serious with music. Part of me thinks he's an actor who is fucking with all of us, then again I don't even think the best actor in the world could think up that character and commit to it that hard. MTV tats on his neck? BET tats on his chest? You can't make that shit up. Regardless check out the hilarious music video from Three Loco which consists of Riff Raff, Andy Milonakis, and Dirt Nasty with a verse from Diplo, who actually just singed Riff Raff to his label. With a beat sampling an insurance companies commercial...how can you go wrong?

Huey Mack and Vonnegutt teamed up with FTS Creative to bring you the official video for "Last Time" off of Huey's latest effort A Boy Named Hue. I was never the biggest fan of Huey but he really impressed me with his last tape. All of the songs were solid and the videos have killed it as well. Check out the video for "Last Time" above and check out A Boy Named Hue if you haven't already.
New track Lupe dropped recently off of his upcoming album Food & Liquor II which will be dropping on Sept 25. Lupe goes hard on this one and his lyricism is intricate as always, it's a really solid release and only gets me more pumped to hear more off his new album. He'll be dropping another track on August 28 leading up to the release of the full album. Stream "Lamborghini Angels" above and enjoy.
The official Mp3 for Swedish House Mafia's "Don't You Worry Child" isn't even out yet and it already receives its first remix treatment. Australian producer Anndyk puts his own spin on the track that features vocals from SHM discover John Martin. Check out the remix and download it below. Enjoy.
Cam Meekins is doing it. This kid has been on an absolute roll recently and he carries that momentum right through to his newest, self produced track titled "Sharks". It's clear that this kid is a product of the 90's, he always has that dope, laid-back hip-hop feel to his verses. This is hands down one of his best tracks yet. Check it out, press play and enjoy.

I don't know how I missed this video back when it first dropped but somehow it got by me. Sean sent it to me today and it's been on repeat since the first play. Ace Hood just straight murders this song, there's really not much else to say. He's clearly at the top of his game right now having just been signed to YMCMB, this is by far the best track I've heard from him. It's a hard hitting track that any hip hop fan will love. Check it out above and enjoy.
Alright. So before I listened to any of this I pretty much had no hopes whatsoever. I'm not hating on Sammy but he's a far cry from the Sam Adams who blew up with "I Hate College" way back when. I'm not going to say he fell off but his style and music has definitely changed a bit. Having said that after giving this a listen through I'm definitely pleasantly surprised. There's some solid tracks on this tape. Sammy goes in over production from the likes of Bei Maejor (who is an absolute beast on the boards), J.O.B., Viceroy and many more. The mixtape is brought to you by Jayceeoh and Clinton Sparks and serves as the Pre-album 2.0 for his upcoming Sony/RCA debut album that is still untitled with no release date. On the whole it's much less pop-sounding then a lot of what we've heard from Sammy in the recent past which is a good thing for me. He does have solid flow and definitely can spit, but we'll just have to see if that carries through to his debut album once that Sony/RCA name is on there. Check out a few of the standout tracks off the mixtape and click the link below to download OK COOL in full.
We've been posting The Two Friends on the site since they first started releasing mashups, but it's been a while since you've seen their name grace the top of the page. Well today they hit us up with their newest creation, a massive progressive house remix of John de Sohn and Andreas Moe's track "Long Time" and it blew me away. These two are clearly at the top of their game and are putting out some seriously solid work. These days the edm genre is kind of overrun with DJ's and producers who claim to be the "next big thing", but these two are well on their way. Check out their newest track and download it below.

It's been quite a while since we've heard any new material from everyone's favorite Ivy League Kidz Ty x Gspence. Thankfully they broke their silence and hit us up with their newest video today for their new track titled "On Everything". This track serves as the first single off of Ty and G's upcoming EP titled New Ivy League which is set to drop August 30th. Both Ty and Gspence deliver solid bars over ill production from Gspence. He has to be one of the top producers on the rise these days, every beat these two go in over is top notch. Check out the video above and be on the lookout for more from these two coming soon. Enjoy.

The track has the A$AP frontman changing up his flow a few times over a trippy, slower beat but Rocky swags it out. Check it out above and be on the lookout for Lord$ Never Worry.
