Silas drops the first of two new Freestyles stylistically called McPick2. The next will drop tomorrow. This one features Silas flipping up his styles up like it’s no big deal. Track comes complete with that Street Fighter effect. Be sure to check out his critically acclaimed project The Day I Died.
Me and my partner in Podcasting, Silent G, were asked to be on The Roguish Gent Podcast this week. Check us out.
Before all the hoopla surrounding Joey and his full on Drake assault, he quietly dropped a very introspective and honest record. All Love Lost dropped last October and gave the listeners front row seats to Joe’s life. Sometimes, just sometimes mind you, I think we deserve a sequel to Being John Malkovich starring Joe in the lead role. I love the fact that he puts himself out there so much, especially in an industry that really frowns upon it. Broke was the lead single from the project. Check it out and if you dig it, then go back and check out the album. It’s on a streaming site near you.

New music from Savvy, nothing I can say that isn’t said in the song. Check it out and let him know what you think.
The title track from Royce 5’9’s new album Layers features the likes of hip-hop heavy weights Pusha T and the false Rick Ross over some Mr Porter production. The video sees our heroes helping a crooked politician to see the neighborhood that he helps to destroy by lining his pockets. At some point, someone at sometime will be held accountable. Royce is enjoying a resurgence over the past few years and I for one am here for it. He’s always been able to spit but down people seem to be acknowledging him for it.
So far this is my favorite song of 2016 I think. It’s been more than a decade since The Avalanches dropped Since I Left You and now they prepare to release Wildflower, almost out of nowhere. The first single features a funky calypso bounce, incomparable vocals provided by Danny Brown and MF Doom and made complete with Wilmoth Houdini sample. If this is what we have to look forward to then this album might be just as ground breaking as their debut effort. Wildflower will be released on July 8th.
This kid has got the it factor. All Flows Reach Out or A-F-R-O as he is more commonly known is an up and coming emcee of the highest regard. With such veterans as DJ Premier, Erick Sermon and Marco Polo wanting to work with him, we are going to be singing his praises for some time to come. Be sure to check out his Mixtape from the 4th quarter of 2015 called The Basement to hold you over until then.
Visual representation of Oddisee’s “Brea” from his recently released project The Odd Tape. The album was just released on vinyl this week, as well. The Odd Tape is a musical journey through Odd’s day. The Director, Ryan Calavano, who has directed videos for Dag Savage, Co$$, Open Mike Eagle and more, captures the vibe of “Brea” beautifully.
