I for one am utterly jacked about a new Lil Wayne mixtape, but I also am irrationally optimistic most of the time new music comes out until shown a reason not to be. Even though this was delayed a little bit, those who were patient enough to stay up with the download were rewarded with a 29 track project. Features the YungGawd,Chance The Rapper, amongst many other familiar faces from the YMCMB circle. Enjoy the tape.

Remember when I said I was really feeling that Isaac Reid and Devin The Dude track? Well, I’m feeling this every bit as much but the energy is much different. You already know Roosh is talking shit to someone or something disrespectful, and Isaac shows he is every bit as confident and on edge when it comes to being respected. Thoroughly enjoy what the man Trakksounds did on the T.I. sample for the beat as well. Looking forward to Isaac’s project dropping in a couple days.
Mr. Whoa 2X is back with new visuals for his recent release ‘Poke Out.’ The video features shots of various party nights in both Dallas and LA. This song is everything you would expect from the kufi king and more. Check it out above.
Isaac Reid is a dude that the HTX homie Trakksounds has been working with lately. Trakk being one of my favorite up and coming producers makes it easy for me to respect his co-sign. So, I checked it out, and what I found was a pretty spectacular song that is incredibly on point with the keys to Devin’s singing to Isaac’s flow fitting properly along the attitude of the song. This is something I’ll play many a Sunday morning in the future. I’m pleasantly surprised in Reid though. I look forward to the project dropping, which is produced in full by Trakksounds. Check out the jam below and enjoy.
As Vic Mensa preps for his upcoming project INNANTAPE, he decides to give us some new material to check out with the visuals for ‘Hollywood LA’ which was directed by Trevor Kane.
The record ProbCause and Chance The Rapper collabed on finally has some visuals to go with it. Recently Chance landed his first magazine cover with many more to come I’m sure. Check out the video above.
Beeeeeeeen waiting on this one. Frank Black is without a doubt one of my favorite artists in the entire state of Oklahoma. There’s something about his voice and flow that makes you pay attention to every word the man has to say. It took about 17 seconds before I started nodding my head ferociously. Frank’s infectious like that. The production, from my understanding, was done completely by Frank and DJ Chips, who also handled the mixing of the project.
One thing this project has is soul. The musicianship demonstrates that, but it’s more so in the content that Frank chooses to reflect upon that really emphasizes it. Earlier when I mentioned his voice, it’s one of the deeper, more recognizable ones in the state, so when he comes with these monster hooks like he does on this project, then it makes it rather tough not to jam intensely.
“Top 10 in the city and I don’t even have an album out” is something he boasts on the second track, “Lord” (an amazing track). That is proven in full on this project; I’d say more like top 5 though. The man makes some great riding music, has no problem articulating what exactly he thinks is going on around him and has some pretty impeccable wordplay while not dropping the ball on lengthy metaphors. It’s impressive to say the very bare minimum. The features include fellow Puzzle People Beetyman, Jabee, L.T.Z. and BlackTop Democracy’s Tom Tucker. If you’re trying to pinpoint Frank Black’s sound, here is a good place to start: Imagine Freddie Gibbs’ ease of flow with the smoothness of Dom Kennedy and the right amount of southern influence. He is a wonderful representative of what people should be drawn to musically in Oklahoma.
The album is in contention for project of the year in OKC as far as I’m concerned and Frank is someone the state should be excited about getting behind. Believe in this man and his music. I sure do. If you don’t know, you will after the first listen. Make sure and check it out, and if you dig, which you will so let’s just skip to the next part, buy it at your own price (I just did) on his bandcamp. Also, let the man himself know what you think about it on Twitter.
The London based duo Snakehips drops this new anthem today titled “Make It”. This melodic bass heavy trap beat is truly different than anything i’ve heard from these guys. This perfectly executed tune is just something to “hold us over” until their next single drops…It’s hard to imagine whats to come next after this already ridiculously well made song. Be on the look out for the next single which is to be dropping very soon! Enjoy.
Maaaaaaaayn! Blended Babies stays killing production and at the top of my favorite producers list. This is to celebrate the video for the original version of this Chance x Ab-Soul track reaching One Million views. As much as I love the original, I dig this almost every bit as much.
