Knxwledge – Gladwemet

Knxwledge follows the 2017 MEEK EP and a notable rework of Anderson .Paak’s Yes Lawd! with the six-track Gladwemet EP. Traffic is the lone feature on the lead single “Relapse.” If Knxwledge’s slow jam inspired signature is your twist, this laid-back tape is for you.

DJ Critical Hype – The Damn.Chronic

DJ Critical Hype blends the best of Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar on The Damn. Chronic mixtape. The thematic sequel to his Chance The Rapper and Kanye West mashup entitled Chance The Dropout, The Damn.Chronic appropriately pairs Kendrick’s rhymes with Dre’s production.

Skizzy Mars – Are You OK?

Uptown Harlem spitter Skizzy Mars follows his debut Alone Together with the Are You OK? EP. The project is a small bite at five tracks, but bubbly production and emotionally dense writing make up for the brevity. Skizzy’s charisma is the ingredient that brings it full circle.
