Antoha MC’s "Бом"

December 1st, 2022
Russian singer, rapper, and trumpet player Antoha MC gives us a song to dance to while making dinner. Dig a little bit deeper and you’ll find many of his songs to be quite danceable. Antoha’s catalog is filled with solid raps overtop of positive jazzy light grooves that fit his flow and voice perfectly. Fall down a rabbit hole on this guy during dinner time, you won’t regret it.

Ahmad Anonimis' "Can't Wake Up"

November 30th, 2022
Atlanta, Georgia artist Ahmad Anonimis’ debut on here is a slow winding dirt road of word play worth taking your time riding down. Silk Beats’ production on here is easy to wind your day down too. We see a bunch of rappers hit a melodic pocket but the thing that still is a premium is the ability to string together words at a rapid pace without needing to take a breath. Great middle of the afternoon lunch jog type song.

Smino & J.Cole's "90 Proof"

November 29th, 2022
Smino worked his way up by slowly growing his base of fans and by collaborating with the coolest folk on the planet. \*Artists take note, this is a good recipe for success. 90 Proof is a representation of Smino pushing Cole into his world with weird melodic grooves that sound like an updated version of Dungeon Family vibes. Feeling like you just fell into an infinite Outkast chorus loop, this song immediately catches you from the feature but the highlight here is Smino’s character setting voice. This immediately feels like one giant hook that just so happens to have a verse from J. Cole (that he bodies, of course). Perfect reading music if you need something that will get you nice, comfortable, and focused.

G Herbo's "Outside Looking In"

November 28th, 2022
The fall is normally synonymous with pumpkin spice everything but give me soul samples and storytelling street raps when the season hits. You may need to live in a place that has morning frost in order to appreciate this song. This song provides the perfect tempo for G Herbo to tell us about his life. If you rock with dope production, you’ll recognize the work of Drake and Kendrick collaborator Boi-1da (Pound Cake and The Blacker the Berry). When Boi-1da sets out to do something he does it right and this beat is every bit soulful as it is melodic. Herbo has consistently delivered and we’re thankful for it.

Freddie Gibbs' "CIA"

November 25th, 2022
Getting vulnerable Freddie Gibbs is a rare occasion that is worth a moment of appreciation. I’d suggest grabbing your favorite cab to enjoy this song. The right setting will help you truly feel Freddie Gibbs work his magic. A good pair of headphones and a comfy couch can go a long way to create the right vibe. The combination of Madlib and Freddie is still incomparable. If you haven’t heard their full album Pinata, get on that.

Phony Ppl's Nowhere But Up

November 23rd, 2022
If your house is in need of a good deep cleaning, then put this on and strap up the Fabuloso. Phony Ppl’s “Nowhere But Up” is a funky raindrop of happiness that turns into rainbow mist once it hits the ground. As soon as you hit play, you may recognize the familiar sound of Cherelle's Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis-produced classic "I Didn't Mean To Turn You On." When you listen to their latest album, EUPHONYUS, released on November 18th, you’ll know what to do when the groove hit you. Start bouncing with that Bissell baby!

Kenny Mason & Jean Dawson’s Nosedive

November 22nd, 2022
Electric guitars and raps haven’t been done right since “Walk This Way”, but Kenny Mason’s album RUFFS does it right. Kenny and Jean both operate on a special frequency. The idea here is that this is an audible energy drink that does not wait for you to get going but more so runs parallel to you on that treadmill and calls you a bitch for not going harder. Get up and get going to this one.

Jean Dawson & Earl Sweatshirt's "Bad Fruit*"

November 21st, 2022
This song is elegant, honest, and wrapped up in beautiful strings. Wake up to this song to really get yourself together. Jean’s understated vocals do not take the backseat on this drive, even when paired next to a vulnerable Earl Sweatshirt. This is what happens when you unapologetically make music to express emotions that you feel. Chaos Now is authentic in every sense of the word. If you ever have the privilege of seeing Jean live, take that ticket any day of the week.

Duke Deuce's "Just Say That"

November 18th, 2022
Duke Deuce is QC’s not so secret weapon and Glorilla is about the same. If you have been listening to any rap music in the past year then both of these names are pretty familiar to you. The city that ties these two together also is legendary in its own right. Memphis, Tennessee is home to a very distinct and incomparable sound that is thankfully being continued here. If you were ever a fan of Three Six Mafia then you know what the deal is here. Aggressive is the best description of the sound I’m thinking about here. Perfect gym music or anytime you need to really get the blood going.
