Listen: Imperial and K.I.N.E.T.I.K- "Pencils not Pistols"


I've been waiting a while for Imperial to drop a project, sure he's dropped singles and beats here and there ever since he signed to Illect, but not a full project. Earlier this week though I finally got my wish. Imperial and K.I.N.E.T.I.K (which is annoying to spell out on the computer) linked up on “Zone Out” a while back and now we get a full-fledged EP in “Pencils Not Pistols”. Vintage production and meaningful, thoughtful lyrics from this UK duo makes this FREE project a must buy. So stop reading and grab this project.

Listen: Braxton Howell- Starship (prod. Rawlins)


Braxton Howell has dropped some newness for us in “Starships” which has some chill production while Howell waxes poetic. The homey released his project “The Damn LP” back July which I also suggest you go and cop for FREE. Peep the joint below and let me know what you think in the comment section. Have to admit I don't understand the cover choice for this though. Peace!

Video: Fashawn- "The Beginning"


I just peeped this in the morning and I'm glad I did, Fashawn has a new album called “The Ecology” and I believe yesterday he dropped a video for the song “The Beginning”. Evidence produced the song and directed the video. It's good to see Fashawn back and he's got me amped to see what's coming with this new album. Just press play and let the excitement begin.

Listen: Action Bronson & Party Supplies "Blue Chips 2"


It's here Action Bronson and Party Supplies have released “BlueChips 2”. The underground sound on this tape brings back the sound I was used to hearing BAM BAM that I feel the EP he did with HarryFraud strayed away from. Bronson is top form here and while he's out of commision for the rest of the year, he left us with a great project that has me wondering what will happen next year. Peace to Action Bronson and you can download the joint HERE.

Listen: Castle- "Oh, Far Out"


Mello Music Group emcee/producer Castle, released his debut album “Gasface” earlier this year (produced the whole thing by the way). This time Castle brings us a free beat tape and while it is short and smacks you in the face quickly and leaves, the diversity on here is something special that this type brings while still being cohesive. You can download the tape for free below!

Listen: MED, Blu and Madlib- "The Buzz" feat. Mayer Hawthrone


MED, Blu and Madlib came together earlier this year to release “The Burgandy EP” and needless to say the trio fit together like a glove. The trio is back with “The Buzz” Madlib provided a nice vintage sound for the two emcees spit over. This time however they recruit vocalist Mayer Hawthrone to drop some stellar vocals in the hook. A proper release will come soon in the form of a single, for now just stream the single below.
