Fly Anakin – LxcvIsXnly (prod. ewonee)

“LxcvIsXnly” is refreshingly raw.  Although the opening piano flourish had me a bit worried that ewonee was going to stick to a tried and true boom-bap template, the song opens up immediately giving Fly Anakin plenty of space to let his stream of conscious flow.  Anakin doesn’t drop the most mind blowing verse you’ll hear all day but his energy …

BLACK KRAY – PRADA BO

“Prada Bo” has BLACK KRAY continuing to explore his Lil Shyne moniker and over an extra-terrestrial beat from Horsehead he sounds like a shamanistic Chief Keef.  “Prada Bo” is constructed around a few cyclical mantras that continue KRAY’s ghetto fairytale story telling style.  “Flip phone be the same color lean”.

Chaden x Noah B – New New York

Considering how New York stands, always has stood, and probably will always stand as a music mecca, “New New York” is a bold declaration in title alone.  Although they’ve been bumping around the blogosphere for a minute, Chaden, Noah B, B. Mob, Jalal Salaam and Stainless Steele aren’t the biggest presences in the world of hip-hop.  But they should be.  “New …

SEENMR – CUTTY

It’s been a while.  After earning winning over our ears with an unstoppable stream of beat tapes SEENMR is back with a new taste of the music he’s been working on.  Less reliant on explicit samples and instead concentrated on the all encompassing vibe, “Cutty” is a natural progression for SEENMR.  Along with an extensive definition for “cutty”, SEENMR promises …

ICYTWAT – LILDEEPTHROAT

“LILDEEPTHROAT” isn’t the most dynamik song you’ll ever hear.  But if BLACKKRAY and Andy Warhol have taught society anything, it’s that sometimes repetition can breed depth.  “Got damn you dirty bitch”.  Let’s all ponder that.

Tay Devenny x ฬเןl – arc II: the remains

The original arc made floating music, the kind that I’d expect to listen to on a train to the cosmos.  arc II isn’t nearly as interested in being any where close to uplifting.  “I wanna go home, I wanna see my family, but everyone is gone, I wanna go home, I wanna see someone, but I can’t…” Devenny explains at the …

Cameron Butler – Chi (ft. DooF)

Although he’s thrown the hashtag in the description of most of his songs, I’ve never really thought to look deeper into DooF’s Bayce crew.  Cameron Butler’s new track popped up on my newsfeed and I figured it couldn’t hurt to give it a listen.  Much like DooF, Butler isn’t a rapper who’s looking to grab your attention with an innovative or …
