New Music 12.11

Yooo guys we’re so close to the end of the semester! Hang in there with your finals!
First of all ScHoolboy Q’s Oxymoron release date: 2/25/2014
Tracks

Vic Mensa- Suitcase ft Chance the Rapper (stream/free dl)
Sooooo goood. Vic Mensa and Chance the Rapper both sound so unique…yet so similar. I was confused who was actually rapping at first, but it’s definitely Chance. I think… anywaaaaay if you’re into smoother sounding hip-hop with jazz influences you’ll dig this fosho. Plus Chance is just a bombass rapper.

Talib Kweli- New Leaders ft. The Underachievers  (stream)
This is actually really dope. I wasn’t sure what I would think about it before listening to the track since I’m not a huge Talib fan…but it’s definitely well done. Talib really goes in on this song, and the Underachievers definitely do their own thing. If you dig the East Coast sound, you’ll definitely like this. It’s like Beast/East Coast done…better.

Yung Lean- Kyoto (stream)
Do people actually like Yung Lean?

Albums/Mixtapes

Yo Gotti- I AM (video stream)
I thought this was really cool. I think I’ve gone over how I don’t like listening to new music (artists I haven’t listened to before) but I was really surprised by this. I like. It has a really underdog feeling to it. I don’t know if that’s useful at all for describing the album, but that’s the best way I can.

E-40- The Block Brochure: Welcome to the Soil 4, 5, 6
So E-40 releases 3 separate albums which are all part of the same album collection. It’s kind of confusing, and honestly I haven’t listened to any of them. I have though, listened to a song off of 5, All My Niggas which is ridiculously dope. Ridiculously. Top 10 songs of 2013 for me fosho.

Etc

Flying Lotus- Ideas+ Drafts+Loops (free dl)
So FlyLo decided to drop some random projects he’s been working on. It’s really cool, and as a new listener to FlyLo I think it’s pretty dope.  Probably my favorite track that he dropped is a song featuring the Underachievers, Adventure Sound.
