Your Old Droog drops literal bombs on his latest drop, “Help,” which features Wiki and Edan. The song features a prominent “It Takes Two” sample and some strong guitar riffs.

A Lil Ugly Mane sighting is rare, these days. He’s secretive, almost always off the map, and unpredictable with his releases, much to the distress of his loyal following.

I first became aware of ZelooperZ via his gloriously frightening anthem, “Elevators,” which somehow sounds like a cross between high energy Master P-esque anthems and futuristic post-apocalypctic horror rap. The Detroit native’s latest release, “Heart,” is a bit more tame but is still no walk in the park. “Heart” is a more hypnotizing, mysterious affair . . .
Ratking has gained a huge niche following, due in no small part to the smooth lyricism of Wiki. Today, the New York native debuts a solo project called Lil Me, full of the focused wordplay we’ve come to expect.

Nothing better to get you charged up and ready for the week than ‘Tangerine Dream,’ a brand new project from Alex Wiley.

I have defended Kanye West for my entire life. My need to defend him has spawned from what I consider an almost lifelong desire to make a connection between his music and my life. Before I get into the heart of what I’m about to say, I need to establish to you all, I am a . . .
It’s Sunday. You know what time it is. For the seventh week in a row, I’ve sat down and stacked up some of the best SoundCloud releases that have come out in the past seven days. This past week we transitioned into 2016, but it didn’t seem to slow things down. We saw Big Sean . . .
High Klassified gives us a high powered, experimental sound with their Kronostasis EP, which is released via Fool’s Gold. Hailing from Montreal, the bold producer is clearly influenced by video games. Not only does Klassified name the EP’s first track “Okarina Of Time” (inspired by The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time), but parts of . . .
Philadelphia’s Asaad uses a soothing soul sample along with a powerful guest feature from TDE’s Ab-Soul to gain new attention with the release of his latest single, “Alejandro Jodorowksy Flow.” Perfect timing, considering that Asaad’s Flowers II project drops this Thursday.

Mastermind is arguably Rick Ross’s least cared about album. Paradoxically, the over-promotion of the album on social media largely contributed to the lack of collective anticipation for the album. The cover was controversial and the self-promotion was constant, but Nevertheless, Mastermind arrived and represents consistency and progression in equal doses.
