iLL Chris – Bolo Tape

iLL Chris – Bolo Tape

iLL Chris is dropping an album in February. To warm fans up, he decided to create a cool concept mixtape known as the Bolo Tape. “Growing up [Bolo Yeung] was a figure I looked up to as being a Stone Cold Badass who gave Bruce Lee and Jean Claude their test to be great,” he says. “With him being in the movie “Blood Sport” for him being Asian and damn near indestructible, I felt as if he was the perfect moniker to pick to showcase what people may have forgotten about me.” On it, there are 13 songs that show-off… continue reading

Free Album: Dom Deshawn – Moods & Interludes

Free Album: Dom Deshawn – Moods & Interludes

Dom Deshawn is the type of rapper you grow to love, because he says a lot of things relatable to your life. This is not an artist you turn up to in the club. This is someone you listen to on the bus heading to work staring out the window, or even when you smoke because he’s got that relaxing vibe. He’s a human who reflects on relationships, trying to make it, and other topics in his music. He does so in a professional sounding manner as Moods & Interludes is the prime example. The 12-track free album comes with… continue reading

French Montana & Harry Fraud – The Appetizer EP

French Montana & Harry Fraud – The Appetizer EP

Peanut butter and jelly. Peter Griffin and Brian. Summer and high temperatures. Scooby and Shaggy. Making a list of some of the best duos in the universe would be impossible, but there’s one thing certain. French Montana and Harry Fraud would make it. Their entire careers have played off each other. Harry got noticed as French got bigger, and French needed Harry to get bigger. Their sounds compliment each other. French had hoped to have Mac & Cheese 4: The Album out in 2014, but it’s not happening. Whatever the reason for the delay is, he chose to do what… continue reading

Fashawn & Alchemist Dropped An EP, Need We Say More?

Fashawn & Alchemist Dropped An EP, Need We Say More?

The Ecology was an album that seemed like it was possibly coming out in 2014. Fashawn signed to Mass Appeal Records (being sought out by Nas himself), then announced the album. Time went on without many updates. We’re sitting and waiting on the album, which is slated for early 2015 release. For his fans, and hopefully a slew of new listeners, nothing screams “ALBUM HYPE” like doing an entire EP with none other than Alchemist. We can go on and on about this EP. FASH-ionably Late is awesome on paper and in your ears. The beats are signature Alchemist, Fashawn… continue reading

OG Maco – Breathe EP

OG Maco – Breathe EP

Not even a month removed from his self-titled debut album, OG Maco is back with another project. It takes a different turn than his usual subject matter. As much as we’ve looked at Maco for records with high energy and turn-up value, most of his fans don’t turn to his music for what’s going on in the United States. By now everyone is aware of the issues plaguing our country after the Mike Brown and Eric Garner situations. On the Breathe EP, OG Maco drops three songs that depict his feelings toward these recent decisions in the murders of those… continue reading

Mixtape: Kevin Gates – Luca Brasi 2

Mixtape: Kevin Gates – Luca Brasi 2

Kevin Gates and Atlantic Records get it. If you have a complete body of work, why just release it for free? Loyal fans LOVE to buy albums. This formula has been something Kevin has used since early 2013, and it’s worked. Every album sells more than the last. So, you can buy Luca Brasi 2 on iTunes, or just get it for free below if you choose. The follow-up to Luca Brasi has huge shoes to fill. His break-out mixtape was the first installment, and it had some serious heat on it. Luckily for Gates, he’s shown how much he’s… continue reading
