March 17th is the birthday of the late, great Sean Price, so no better time to celebrate his legacy than the present with this new visual from his Songs In The Key Of Price mixtape. Royal Flush and Illa Ghee join up with Sean’s baby girl Shaun, who lip syncs through her dad’s verse. Stay tuned after the vid for a heart-warming moment from one of P’s shows where his daughter joined him onstage. Rest in power.
DJ Kay Slay assembles a trio of undeniable wordsmiths for this track off of his 50 Shades Of Slay mixtape AVAILABLE NOW.
You may already know that I’m a big fan of Your Old Droog’s, but A$AP Ferg is an MC whose next project I’m checking for and I’m finding myself appreciating Wiki of late. In addition, trumpeter, composer and producer Christian Scott was an amazing find for me. Please enjoy.
Oslo, Norway native Ivan Ave has been quietly dropping some heat for a while now and I’m here for it every time. Check out his new joint “The Circle” off of the album Helping Hands, due out February 12th.
Though this isn’t her latest, this is one of a few joints that I stumbled across today from Dutch ReBelle, who I found out about from a track she did with the homie Nat Anglin (“Follow ‘Em”). Check out the video and then get into some of her other work by copping that ReBelle Diaries album on iTunes.
Retch revisits the Finesse The World project to provide some grimy visuals for “Disclaimer”. Be on the lookout for his Lean & Neck mixtape dropping sooner rather than later.
Though this isn’t a new song, I had to post this one. This is some powerful music and I’m happy to see a capable female MC break out with some authentic material. Her album, Dedicated To, is due out for the fall and judging from this and her appearance on Fabolous’ “You Made Me”, I’m looking forward to it.
Most of my favorite singers right now went to Howard around the time I did. A few posts ago, I posted the work of Aaron Abernathy and here’s Nicholas Ryan Gant performing “The Makings Of You”, originally written and performed by Curtis Mayfield. Amazing rendition. Enjoy.
Camp Lo and Ski Beatz are a match made in production heaven. Here, they release another single off of the album Ragtime Hightimes, which is available on iTunes now. Float with this one.
If you weren’t already salivating over Alchemist and Oh No’s upcoming collaborative album You Disgust Me, which drops August 7th, this single should definitely whet the appetite. The duo team up with none other than Action Bronson to rap their respective asses off while wreaking absolute havoc on a rental car (check for Simon Rex as the rental agent).
