Joey Bada$$ – Unorthodox (Prod. By DJ Premier)

Joey Badass

Premo invited Joey Bada$$ to his private HeadQCourterz Studio and “Unorthodox” is the result of these sessions. Get excited. The track is dope, featuring the up and coming Brooklyn rapper (this kid is going to own the game real soon) and the legendary scratches from DJ Premier.

Week that Was (11-22-12 to 11-28-12)

If you’ve noticed more tracks featured on the week that was, one, you’re welcome, and two, it’s because more and more music is pouring in through our email. This week we have 12 fresh tracks, with 3 headlining artists on top of it. Brooklyn based Railbird leads us off, with a psych pop experimental sound that’s gotten them on tour with Reptar and Rubblebucket. Cash Cash is next, and the wait for a track as fun to dance to as Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.” may finally be here. If “Overtime” doesn’t at least get your foot tapping or shoulder popping, let me know and I’ll send you a sticker. Rounding out the Week that Was headliners is another Brooklyn band, Great Caeser. Often referred to as “the OutKast of Brooklyn Indie Rock,” you better expect great things. Enjoy! Keep sending music to acityinthemidwest [@] gmail.com.

Video of the Week: A-Trak & Dillon Francis – Money Makin’

Who doesn’t like a dancing ATM machine and flying dollar bills? The new video from Fool’s Gold’s A-Trak and Dillon Francis features an ATM machine that comes to life to roam the streets and clubs of New York City. With appearances by Greg Nice and P-Thugg of Chromeo, the video and beats prove once again that anything A-Trak puts his name on is, like his label, golden.
