Chance the Rapper – Home Studio (Back Up In This Bitch)

Chance has a home studio now and a production crew called Social Experiment. So obviously his latest song is called “Home Studio (Back Up in this Bitch)”.  Nate Fox and Nico Segal  produced, the track features Chano reflecting on some of his successes over the past year, how he’s got the labels telling him he’s not playing fair. The beat is funky, so get your dancing shoes out. Enjoy! Solo Chano is back up in this bitch, AND he’s got that Young Thug flow on too!

Week that Was (4-16-14)

This should probably be called the year that was, but to help with tagging, we’re sticking with “Week.” Away for some time, but getting back on track, expect more and more ACITM music coverage as I finish my studies and head back to what has become the mecca of music, Chicago. We’ve got an old favorite in The Ataris coming to town Friday night, with an Orwells homecoming in April.

Without further ado, let’s get to the music. Starting us off are Sunny Gicz and Gabe Niles, aka Sunny & Gabe, a Virginia duo that varies from a hazy overcast to a strong trip hop pounding bass. They’ve got a mixtape called “Free Candy” that’s available for download now. Expect new music soon from these two.

Sunny & Gabe – Godzilla

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.

Meet Black Atlass

Ontario native Alex Flemming, aka Black Atlass, first burst onto the scene about 11 months ago with his masterpiece The Black Atlass EP. Featuring 6 songs spanning roughly 18 minutes, Flemming displays his production versatility with a mix of sample heavy bangers and synth laid piano wails that will upset you when you learn he’s most likely younger than you. That’s right, the EP was released when he was just 17. Take a listen (and then download) the whole EP below.
