Front-Free’s been down with Mela Machinko’s workings for a long time, but check out her feature on Essence’s New & Next for a little more insight about where she’s coming from and where she’s going. Check out Machinko’s Bandcamp and cop her 9am Blues EP ASAP.
Shoutout to 2DopeBoyz. Saw this EP on their website and had to check it out. Brooklyn’s Lucille “Loud Pack Lucy” Ghatti lays down a few short tracks of craft and creativity. Listen below and hit up her Bandcamp to cop from the source.
I recently unearthed the curiously titled The Susan Sarandon Story, a compilation produced entirely by production beast ATG and starring some rap heavyweights: Sean Price, Kool G. Rap, Planet Asia, Ruste Juxx, and more. There’s also some cutting from Statik Selektah. Stream and download right here on Front-Free.
Mos Def, now known as Yasiin Bey (by almost no one), releases the first offering from Amerigo Gazaway’s Yasiin Gaye, which marries Mos’ sound with the legendary Marvin Gaye. Very excited about this project.
Dope day for new music. Mobb Deep give us the first single from their upcoming album, titled The Infamous Mobb Deep which is set to feature verses from Noreaga, Raekwon and Ghostface and will be a two-disc album with 10 bonus songs and skits recorded in 1994.
