YBN Cordae – What’s Life

December 31, 2018 Benny P 0

  Cordae on his soulful shit. This song was immaculate. Cherry on top of an incredible year for the young artist. Impossible to not be amped for this kid’s future. Last non-list post of 2018…can’t

Songs

Eto – The Burial Song

December 29, 2018 Benny P 0

Grimy street cut from New York MC ‘Eto.’ Definitely have to shoutout this artist’s skillset…has that old school sound I love but over cleaner, modern beats. He was all over the East Coast underground this

Latrell James – Okay

December 27, 2018 Benny P 0

More heat from the rising Boston star. Add him to the list of youngsters impressing me from Beantown…pure hip hop being made. Everything from the rhymes to the beat to the video is fire, keep

Armand Hammar – Paraffin (Short Film)

December 23, 2018 Benny P 0

Billy Woods and Elucid. If those names don’t perk your ears up then it’s research time. Two of the most dexterous MCs in the game right now and the music doesn’t lie. Just like most

Songs

Valee – About U (feat. DRAM)

December 21, 2018 Benny P 0

Chase the money chase the money! What an instrumental. Valee and DRAM brought the wave on this joint – such a fun track overall. Simple and makes you wanna groove. Sometimes that’s all you need.

Videos

Mozzy – Black Hearted

December 19, 2018 Benny P 0

Maybe my choice cut from Mozzy’s last album. Regardless, Gangland Landlord was a dope ass project. Mozzy gotta be one of the big names on the West Coast right now – you don’t get placed

Videos

MIKE – Prayers (feat. Medhane)

December 12, 2018 Benny P 0

Brand new MIKE – enough said. Really hope he gets some more buzz post-Some Rap Songs dropping and those Earl shoutouts. But if it doesn’t happen, to quote Max Holloway, it is what it is.

Evidence – Rain Drops

December 10, 2018 Benny P 0

The Weatherman bringing us the rain. What a song – shoutout to Twiz The Beat Pro for the production. Weather or Not still impresses the life outta me…look for that on the lists towards the

Georgia Anne Muldrow – Overdrive

December 5, 2018 Benny P 0

Bow down to the Queen. Georgia Anne Muldrow just dropped the visuals for the title track off her new album – man oh man is that a great project. Such a gifted artist. Muldrow in

Noname – Blaxploitation

December 4, 2018 Benny P 0

Noname dropping visuals on us today too! This really was a film. The vision on this artist…hydrates my soul. Bassline too funky! Room 25 been in rotation since it dropped – if you ain’t playing

Videos

J.I.D – Off Deez (feat. J. Cole)

December 4, 2018 Benny P 0

You knew this was coming! The more times I hear this the more it hits me how raw and nasty it is. J.I.D snaps. Cole snaps. Beat is bonkers. DiCaprio 2 already a lock on

Songs

Little Simz – 101 FM

December 4, 2018 Benny P 0

I like this joint a lot. Simz one of the freshest voices in the U.K. right now – her raps are too damn poingnant. Plus, she’s got an ear for beats AND a vicious flow.

Blood Orange – Dagenham Dream

December 4, 2018 Benny P 0

Blood Orange crushed it this year. His Negro Swan album was fantastic and widely acclaimed, stapling Dev Hynes as one the most gifted minds in the R&B/Hip Hop scene today. As I said, this album
