Michael Christmas - "Solid as a Rock"
Michael Christmas cracks open his next chapter with an inspired cadence and a borrowed hook. You can find the track on the Boston rapper's upcoming project, UnSexy, which should be arriving in the months ahead, but has yet to receive a firm release date.
Slum Village featuring Larry June - "Just Like You"
After gracing Larry June and The Alchemist's stellar new album, Slum Village return the favor, hosting the San Francisco rapper on this funk-fueled and footwork-friendly single.
LUCKI - "Leave Her"
Roughly a year after it first surfaced, LUCKI puts the "official" stamp on one of the best songs in his ever-expanding catalog, finally sharing the track across DSPs.
Rico Nasty - "Turn It Up"
Rico Nasty returns with a raucous romp that should have you moshing through the kitchen in no time at all.
YGTUT and Starlito - "Diamonds In The Rough"
YGTUT and Starlito give Tennessee one of its best looks in a long while on this full-float loosie.
YUNGMORPHEUS featuring Fly Anakin - "Cassava Bread"
YUNGMORPHEUS and Fly Anakin break bread and breezy beachside loop on this comfort-crushed cut from the LA-based rapper's new album, From Whence It Came, which is out today via Lex Records, featuring appearances from Jimetta Rose, MED, lojii, Ahwlee, and more.
Your Old Droog - "Venture Capital"
Your Old Droog follows last week's Madlib-assisted musings with some fierce financial planning over swirling symphonies and soul. Don't be surprised if the Brooklyn rapper turns up with another tape in the not too distant.
