This week marked the release of Been Good: Vol 1. It was produced by George F. Baker III, Wino Willy, Teimless Knight, Shalom Little and Kaedus of Raven Corps. The tape, features appearances from many of New Atlanta’s dopest artists, such as Miles Stone, Zip K, subCONSCIOUS [sbCNCS], Neion Deion, and many more. Def a dope compilation. You can listen and DL the entire project here.
Two of my favorite Southern emcees have finally come together to make a track with visuals to accompany. Locomotion featuring Clay James is on Miles Stone‘s upcoming project Hard Liquor due out this spring. The track is the truth. Both artists bring a type of Southern style that makes you want to lay up, put your feet up and vibe out. Check out the vid below and let me know what you think. And be sure to watch out for Miles and Clay; they’re both def cooking up some heat for this upcoming summer!
Just in time for Valentine’s Day and just days after dropping the Napolean video, Cyhi The Prynce brings chivalry back with the track Coretta. The song is a romantic track yet still equipped with CyHi’s usual triple entendres and unique wordplay. Coretta will be on the upcoming mixtape Black History Project, dropping on DatPiff on February 24. So far I love the theme and the project sounds dope. Check out the track below.
Today has been a busy day for the music industry, full of many great announcements. However, the one I’m about to break is definitely one of my favorite of the day. Now-indie artist Kid Cudi has released the cover art and track listing for his next album, Satellite Flight. Following last year’s Indicud (which I still play pretty much daily), I’m excited to hear what S.F. has to offer. The most noteworthy track in my opinion is entitled Return of the Moon Man (Original Score) [which leads me to believe that the track will be theatrical]. There’s also a track called Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Now, and another called Balmain Jeans (which sounds more like a Kanye track) featuring Raphael Saadiq. The cover art goes along with his Moon Man alias and leads fans to believe it will be true to the “high-flying” albums which have made millions grow to love Cudi. Check out the track list below.
I am pleased to bring you new music AND visuals from one of my absolute favorite artists CyHi The Prynce. The track is called Napolean and is just as imperial as it sounds. The Prynce’s next project will be executive produced by none other than Kanye West, so I am as always extremely excited to hear that. Mr. Redan Road plans to drop several more mixtapes and then release an album soon. Stay tuned for more updates and check out the vid below!
Finally the long-awaited for visuals for Atlanta rapper-[singer-on-the-low] Rich Homie Quan. The track is entitled Party and caught the attention of most last summer, along with his recent hit Type of Way and most recently platinum-status My Hitta. The visuals are dope and Hangover-esque, and feature a lot of dope use of color and cinematogrophy in true Gabriel Hart aka Video God fashion. Check out the vid below and let me know what you think!
