More jubilance from tobi lou. Hard not to be in a good mood when you’re listening to this artist’s work, it’s mad cheerful. Not only is it positive, but it’s also quite polished. The production

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…Slug truly is a master of storytelling. Can’t tell y’all how happy it makes me that this group is still putting out music in 2018. This cut

J. Cole – Album of the Year Freestyle

August 8, 2018 Benny P 0

Cole wasn’t kidding when he said he wanted some beats! Although, this is a pretty old beat in hip hop years. Nas spit over the original ‘Oochie Wally’ over ten years back, but regardless, Cole

Chynna – Leo Season

Chynna on her trap shit. She’s known to snap on occasion – I dug this track overall. I can see her getting a pretty big following. Music is dope and confidence is there. 48th St

Mick Jenkins – Bruce Banner

August 7, 2018 Benny P 0

Stank face engaged. Tracks like this are why I consider Mick one of the most talented in this entire generation. “Honestly, can’t nobody come for me except Kendrick” If I’m being honest, that ain’t far

Travis Scott – STOP TRYING TO BE GOD

August 6, 2018 Benny P 0

Is this the most impressive collaboration of 2018? Kid Cudi, James Blake, Phillip Bailey AND Stevie Wonder. Unbelievable. Probably my favorite cut from ASTROWORLD. Pure tranquility. Big shoutout to Bailey on the hook again –

Freddie Gibbs – Automatic

Gibbs HAS to be one of the funniest MCs in the entire game. A little unfair that he’s also one of the most talented. I’ve been bumping the Freddie EP all damn summer, so many

Ella Mai! You got the soul! The U.K. young powerhouse is back with new music. This single is smooth as all hell – Mai’s voice is both beautiful and powerful. In the current R&B scene,

Redman – Ya!

Reggie stay killing it. Personally speaking, I don’t think he’s ever falling off. Stayed consistent – and grown – throughout his entire career. Hit Squad, solo career, Method Man collabs – all dope to me.

BROCKHAMPTON – 1998 TRUMAN

July 18, 2018 Benny P 0

Damnnnn, the boys ain’t fucking around. Especially Merlyn, he was ON one on this song. Joba, Dom and Matt were flowing. Romi killed the production. I mean – can BROCKHAMPTON be stopped? I really don’t

Mac Miller – Self Care

Wiki – Litt 15 (feat. Your Old Droog)

July 10, 2018 Benny P 0

This song is timeless to me – the looping of the beat early on, the hypnotic horn, Wiki and Droog’s street poetry…damn. It’s so pure. Track is from Wik’s debut album No Mountains in Manhattan
