“Dayy-umm KrysShunnnn!” It is a drop that you hear one time and become instantly infatuated with. Spacy producer Krys$hun has quickly become a favorite of mine. If you haven’t heard any of his mixes or production for artists such as Casey Veggies, Money Makin Nique or Curtis Williams, I suggest you head over to his Soundcloud and check them out now. He has a laidback, trippy vibe to most of his music yet is still so versatile I find his mixes perfect for any mood. His new track Vibe Out with the help of Synatra J is no different. Check it out above and let me know what you think below!
Though the video dropped last week, it’s dope enough that I thought I’d still bring it to you guys today. From his DOPE Black Hystori Project, G.O.O.D.’s own CyHi the Prynce gives us controversial visuals for his track entitled 3:16 . [True rap heads will get both meanings of the title.] Keeping in line with the theme of the mixtape and the tradition of Cyhi, the track talks about real subjects that plaque our commuinity and as always is laced with plenty of triple entendres that take a few listens to truly take in. In the video, Cyhi dons an all-black preacher’s robe and sits on a pew, drinking some dark and smoking a cigarette at times. While it is risky and borderline-blasphemous, I can respect the artistic expression and wordplay. Check out the vid below and let me know what you think. Also check back tomorrow for footage of CyHi and labelmate Pusha T at the MNIMN tour stop in ATL.
Just in time for the spring, the “thug Mrs.” of TDE brings us her album Z, a warm yet dark and very eclectic mix of ethereal yet easily relatable music. If you haven’t heard of SZA, I’d describe her as a hiphop Corinne Bailey Rae, with a sultry voice that is both relaxing and emotion evoking while using grimy beats and killer collabos to give you a finished project that is more simultaneously refreshing and gutta than you could ever imagine. She has been making waves for over the past year after releasing her first EP as an unsigned artist entitled S. It’s not hard at all to see why the TDE team deemed her a thrilling and innovative addition. Monday she dropped a refreshed version of her hit Bablyon along with an always stellar Kendrick verse hours before the album Z hit iTunes. It’s def worth the money but if you don’t have the cash flow at the moment, check out the Spotify stream of the album below [Julia became a favorite of mine immediately, with Child’s Play ft Chance the Rapper as a close second!] and let me know what you think!
New audio from one of the hottest in the game OVO’s own Drake. Entitled Draft Day, the track is spit over a dope sample and to me somewhat reminiscent of Comeback Season Drizzy. It also features a dope audio reference, just as Drake’s most recent hit We Made It. I really appreciate his commitment to the theme of his songs lately. I like the laidback tone of the song and can’t wait to ride to it this summer. Check it out above and let me know what you think.
