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.

Kids These Days “Don’t Harsh My Mellow” (New Video)

Everything Kids These Days touch turns gold, and it’s the same with their latest track and first single off Trap House Rock, “Don’t Harsh My Mellow.” Not to mention it’s Austin Vesely directed, and what has he ever released that you didn’t love?

We’ve heard the song live a number of times, but the proper version is just as good. The same bone tingling, make you check over your shoulder, make you go wild when the hook drops vibe. Check out the video below and let us know what you think. KTD takeover!
