Fly Anakin – Nucense (ft. DooF & Jalal Salaam)

If you’ve been paying attention, “Nucense” is probably the most exciting song that will drop all week.  Although we’ve highlighted all three of these rappers before, “Nucense” demonstrates (probably better than anything else they’ve all put out) why they’re the fresh faces to look out for in the underground.  There simply isn’t a wasted line across the entire three minutes. …

devenny. – aztec (demo)

Remember a few days ago when devenny. (who we only recently stopped referring to as Tay Devenny) celebrated his birthday by reminding us that underneath the philosophical musings and ambitions was a kid with a lot of talent with the rhyme?  Click the link if you don’t… “aztec (demo)” continues Devenny’s crusade into verse-centric hip-hop as the second part of a …

Tay Devenny – Birthday Drips

Tay Devenny just turned 20 years old and he’s celebrating by doing what he’s best at; expounding on his most philosophical thoughts.  “Birthday Drips” is a low-key, minimal freestyle with Devenny pulling back on some of the more experimental r&b flourishes he’s been experimenting with these past few months.  Although it’s far less involved, “Birthday Drips” is a nice reminder …

SEENMR – Dirty Tapes Mix

It’s not exactly new music from SEENMR, but this “9 minutes of filth” is a reminder of the distinctive sonic world that SEENMR inhabits.  His mix is just as messy as the pile of garbage on the artwork but also as architecturally stimulating.  Over the course of the 9 minutes the mix includes blasts of hip-hop, tape recordings of an empty …

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 …

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 …

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 …
