Chance the Rapper drops the latest single from Acid Rap, with video included, called “Good Ass Intro.” A soulful mixed house-bounce euphoric, proclaiming Chance is back “Even better than the last time.” We’re counting down the days for this thing to release. Listen and watch below, enjoy!
Closed Sessions is awesome. The label is owned and operated by Alexander Fruchter, rubyhornet founder, and Michael Kolar, the Owner/Chief Engineer of SoundScape Studios. They continuously bring together the best in Chicago hip hop, this time linking up Closed Sessions artist Alex Wiley with Kids These Days supaMC Vic Mensa, all over Chuck Inglish production. Made before kick off the the Super Bowl, you can check out a documentary about the pairing after the jump. Enjoy!
Lupe took to twitter to release “Light Blue,” a track made just for practice, like a gymnast or piano player would do, said Fiasco. Forget about all the controversy surrounding the Chicago MC and we see he’s a damn good rapper. Stream and download the track below.
This production is insane. Brought to you by NYC producer Harry Fraud, who on Friday will be releasing a mixtape called Adrift featuring the likes of Mac Miller, French Montana, and Bronsolinio himself. Beats like this are perfect for Action. Enjoy!
I love posting a “Week that Was” with bands and rappers that I’ve never blogged about before. A great mix of music from all over the world. Make sure to keep sending us music and let us know what you think! If you’re feelin’ down, start with Jahan Lennon. If you’re feelin’ stressed, play the Generationals. If you’re trying to party, go straight to Kill Paris. Music for everyone. Enjoy!
Rhymes so real thought I wrote it in Janis Joplin’s vomit.
Taking a break from his upcoming release OLD, Danny Brown releases “Hottest MC,” a direct response to MTV’s annual “Hottest MC” Countdown. The list has been coming under fire, with even Kanye West chiming in about his #7 ranking. Regardless, some awesome lines in this, and an overall more aggressive, focused feel to the track. Expecting big things from Danny, the album should be one of the best of 2013. Enjoy!
More hip-hop than you usually see on the “Week that Was,” thanks to some strong features from Chance the Rapper, Action Bronson, and Kendrick Lamar. AlunaGeorge keeps cranking out awesome tracks, really setting themselves apart from the rest of the music world. I am dying to see that duo live. Make sure to check out more of Hundred Waters and Ghost Loft if you get some time, the remixes here don’t completely do the bands justice. Expect big things from them. Keep sending new music! We really appreciate it, and love hearing new things. Enjoy!
This track is reportedly one that didn’t make Channel Orange, so nothing completely new. Great track regardless, with the guitar driven background setting the moon as Frank swoons over a higher power watching over him. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
“Seppuku” dropped right after “Acid Rain” last night, and it was quite a follow up. Produced by Nez & Rio, the track features SaveMoney’s finest, Chance the Rapper, Kami de Chukwu, Vic Mensa, Tokyo Shawn, and Caleb James. We’ve featured the groups work before (constantly actually) and they all seem to be getting better with time. Jump on the SaveMoney bandwagon ASAP, it’s getting pretty packed on here. Kami and Chance seem to pair up seamlessly, would love to see a joint tape between the two. Enjoy!
Seppuku – (切腹, “stomach-cutting”) is a form of Japanese ritual suicide by disembowelment.
