EP: Sidewalk Kal – Champagne Forever

Sidewalk Kal has released enough amazing music over the past few years to compile better albums than your favorite rapper.  Although he’s made us wait far too long, his debut EP Champagne Forever is finally here.  Three tracks may seem to be a pretty bare-bones release considering how most rappers these days are willing to release a new 30+ track …

mp3: Spooky Black – Without You (Supa Bwe & Sidewalk Kal Remix)

Whether or not you like him, Spooky Black is primed to blow up (at least on the same level as Yung Lean) and he deserves it.  “Without You” is one of the most interesting pop tracks to drop this year and it sounds even better with Supa Bwe and Sidewalk Kal over it.  The boys mostly leave the original intact, …

mp3: Sidewalk Kal – Champagne Forever / Taxin

It’s been a pretty good week for hip-hop.  We got some new Chance, Wu-Tang, Ratking and most importantly two new tracks from Deity Gang member and Up-Turn favorite Sidewalk Kal.  What’s most exciting is that the two new tracks are the first taste of Kal’s upcoming Champagne Forever EP.  I’ve been waiting for a Kal release for a few years now …

mp3: Sidewalk Kal – Cut The Bullshit (prod. Tuamie)

The godly collaborations between Tuamie and Sidewalk Kal continue with “Cut The Bullshit”.  As he demonstrated on his track “Xpansion”, Tuamie is experimenting with new sounds and styles with his production and “Cut The Bullshit” has him moving past the soul-coated loops we’ve come to expect and embracing odder textures and synth sounds.  I honestly can’t imagine many other emcees …

Video: Tuamie – Generation Y

At the end of the day Tuamie is the loops master and the beatie king and he’s making it because he has never doubted his methods.  Since his earlier days, Tuamie has gained a sizable fan base and even collaborated with Sidewalk Kal proving that he has skill to live up to the praise we’ve thrown his way.  “Generation Y” is …

mp3: Sidewalk Kal – Sri Lanka (prod. Mattron)

We heard the teaser a while ago and have been lucky enough to hear Kal perform this track live a few times so it was a pretty nice surprise today to see that Kal has finally decided to put out “Sri Lanka”.  Since Yung AOL has overtaken Mattron this technically may be the last Mattron/Kal joint and it’s only fitting …

mp3: Keiya – Due Time (prod. Jay Curry)

Yeah, Deity Gang isn’t all dudes.  I didn’t actually know that until I had the pleasure of meeting Keiya at the Deity Gang Paxico Take-over a few weeks back.  Keiya is not only the sole member of Deity Gang who sings but she’s a fine singer on her own right as well.  “Due Time” isn’t in your face and probably …
