Gorgeous Bully – I Think

After a few weeks of shamelessly embracing normcore hits such as “Shower” and “Fancy” I decided it was time for a detox.  “I Think” is a breath of fresh air for any pretentious blogger who’s been too busy to sit down and scowl at the world for a bit.  Not that this song is a bummer.  It’s not.  “I Think” …

mp3: UGLYFRANK – DARTZ

Since UGLYFRANK is still relatively unknown I know saying this comes with a risk of everyone assuming its hyperbole meant to over-hype and cause buzz but I truly believe that in the year 2014 no rapper has decisively commanded the mic as well as UGLYFRANK.  If you didn’t listen to his EP BOBBY HILL that dropped earlier this year, you definitely should but …

DOOOF STUFF

DooF – polutions. (prod. akeedro)

DooF is quickly becoming the most consistent and reliable rapper on soundcloud.  It’s nearly impossible to keep up with his constant stream of material but it is easy to hear how far he’s come since his early experiments.  Over an instant and warm beat from akeedro, which is laced with much more nuance than I appreciated on my first few …

AceMo – Gat In My Lap

Want more Swim Team?  Ye duh.  It’s been a little since we’ve heard new music from AceMo and considering his last amazing EP Boarders, “Gat In My Lap” is definitely a change up from his past recorded material.  But it’s not a surprising one considering how energetic his live shows have always been.  If it weren’t for AceMo I probably …

Izy – Why (prod. Color Plus)

Izzy Groovy has been dominating our attention lately and for good reason (also p.s. I think he’s going by just Izy now which is chill cause he should do what he wants).  Swim Team keeps killing it and “Why” is just another reason why they’re set to take over the blogosphere.  Over a bubbling and colorful beat from Color Plus, who’s …

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”.
