Leather Corduroys – Porno Music Volume II: TSFR (EP)

Kami de Chukwu and Joey Purps actually released something for real today, this is not another April Fool’s akin to Demarcus Cousins releasing a mixtape or Google giving out jobs to America’s top Pokemon masters. “Bleed” sets the tone from the start, and the whole mixtape live up to the lead track. Beats have a very dark, Flatbush Zombies feel to them. Kami has long been an ACITM favorite, and this new duo with Joey Purps is heading in the right direction. Highlight is track 4, “Nightmare on Chicago Ave.” Check out the whole thing and let us know what you think.

Jay-Z Announces New Album “Magna Carta Holy Grail”

Monumental news from Jay-Z during half time of the Heat/Spurs Finals game: Jay’s long-time rumored new album will be released July 4th. The Samsung commercial announcing the album features producers Rick Rubin, Pharrell and Timbaland, Swizz Beats and others, all rumored to have had a part in the new record. The beat snippets sounded CRAZY. You can also hear Jay say “Turn that up Ye,” hopefully meaning Mr. West contributed to the album as well. Damn Jay, couldn’t let Ye enjoy his baby for at least a full day?! Also, there goes all the buzz around protege J.Cole’s Born Sinner.

West Coast veteran rhyme-slayer Murs, Bad Brains founding member Darryl Jenifer, and Ego Trip co-creator Sacha Jenkins SHR have teamed up to form The White Mandingos, announcing the release of their debut full length, The Ghetto is Tryna Kill Me, on June 11th, 2013 through Fat Beats.

Little Big Orchestra – Experiment 626

After being absent from the outside world for about a year and a half, Good Ratio Music presents their new release from Little Big Orchestra, who is debuting a project named Experiment 626. It contains a bunch of mysterious sounds clashing with deep, dark sequences, which makes this creation different than the usually offered tones of GRM.

The music unlocks a very intimate side of the artist, songs made by broken beats, pitched voices and profound themes that will take the listener to another universe. The contrasting fragile and strong metallic tones makes it a unique and special piece.
