Share This.DMX returned last with a new mixtape and surprisingly no one has really made any mention of it. Released around mid-May, The Weigh In is only an appetizer to his upcoming album. It features an even more vulnerable Earl Simmons with guest appearances from Snoop Dogg, Tyrese and Big Stan. We initially wondered why X didn’t employ the talents of his former Ruff Ryder cohorts. Suspect guest appearances aside, we cannot tell Read More

Share This.El-P’s latest album, Cancer 4 Cure, is a distressed, semi-schizophrenic announcement of his return. After a five year hiatus since dropping his last effort, the Brooklyn native and veteran in the underground progressive rap scene weaves together his beat boy roots with bass heavy distortion; creating a Frankenstein of sounds. The track, “The Full Retard,” is as if he launches the future of sound at your face and rubs Read More

Share This.Musical collaborations often attempt to sell/display a certain authenticity; they want you to believe that the collaborating artists genuinely like each other and are the best of friends. Although this strategy has its purpose, at times, it can be transparent and overwrought to a point where it just seems like smoke and mirrors. But here we have Cheri Coke and Melo-X; a true musical relationship that is blossoming before Read More

One Advance Summer.

Share This.Here’s a charming little video for a song that could very well be the song we play all summer. Directed by Philip Hodges and performed by Advance Base, “Summer Music” is a glum but nonchalant tale of separation and redemption. In the video, a heartbroken muppet-like fellow named Fritz finds himself down in the dumps over losing his human girlfriend Chelsea but discovers a solution through DYI tunage and one of Read More

Share This.Conscious rhymesayer  Lupe Fiasco released visuals for “Around My Way (Freedom Isn’t Free)” yesterday. Many are using the opportunity to claim that Lupe is back while also taking parting shots at his last effort Lasers – which was seen as somewhat of a failure. This single will more than likely be found on his future effort, tentatively titled Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album.

Share This.Still rolling off her success of the hit banger, “212″, Azealia Banks’ newest drop is taking it from the streets of Harlem to the jungle. The Hudson Mohawke and Nick Hook produced “Jumanji” is laced with tribal rhythms and Banks’s signature school yard taunt flow and is the first track off her upcoming mixtape, Fantastic. Take a listen and download the single here. “Jumanji” by Azealia Banks.↓

Share This.A$AP affiliate SpaceGhostPurrp recently released new visuals for his single “The Black God”. Many are anticipating his forthcoming project Mysterious Phonk: Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp and telling from the likes of this video, we’re in for a shitload of phonk, grim gold, and deep black. Mysterious Phonk: Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp is set for June 12th. “The Black God” by SpaceGhostPurrp.↓

Swimming in Trash.

Share This.Shoegaze quartet Trailer Trash Tracys just released a new video today for “Los Angered”, the first single from their debut album Ester. The video, directed by Penny Mills, is a dreamy and psychedelic whirlpool consisting of trippy colors, vibrant foams and melting crayons. The London gang looks semi-disinterested — as usual —  while Susanne Aztoria’s honeyed vocals sing a sweet lullaby. “Los Angered” by Trailer Trash Tracys.↓

Anyone for a Game of Pickups?

Share This.Attempting to build on the Grammy nominated buzz of 2009′s swoon, Silversun Pickups released their new album, Neck of the Woods, today. The band already released their first single, titled “Bloody Mary (Nerve Endings)“, in late March. We’ve been listening to it for about a week now and certainly don’t mind giving it a thumbs up on its day of release. The Silversun Pickups delightfully thrash about during the course of Read More
