New Friday, new music. We’ve got a final farewell from legends and plenty of power plays from cats old and new. Walk with us through this forest of new joints.
A Tribe Called Quest – We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service
I mean, what else needs to be said at this point? A Tribe Called Quest’s first album in 18 years will also be their final offering nd also features bars recorded by the late Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor in secret. Busta Rhymes, Consequence, Kanye West, and Anderson .Paak are seeded all across this album with the mighty Tribe themselves. Get familiar before their Saturday Night Live performance tomorrow night.
KXNG Crooked – Good VS Evil
From Crooked I to KXNG Crooked, the man’s always had vicious bars to spare. If you missed Statik KXNG, his collaborative joint with Statik Selektah from earlier this year, then you have time to fall into the eternal fight of Good VS Evil. With a prerequisite feature from Eminem and others from Xzibit, Just Blaze, Tech N9ne, and many more, Crooked still going at it.
Dumbfoundead – We Might Die
Dumbfoundead brought the energy back this year. As a subject of the Asian rapper documentary Bad Rap, how could he not? Dumb’s elastic flow has proven to take to nearly any beat, and the eclectic beat selection on We Might Die is proof of that; enough to help the death theme go down a little easier.
Z-Ro – Legendary
The South’s going strong this year. The Mo City Don’s heavy voice cuts through the booming production all throughout his second full-length project of the year.
Vic Spencer – St. Gregory
Like him or not, Vic Spencer came here to rap. St. Gregory is the Chicago native taking on haters with a smile and vicious bars in the pocket across 20 tracks.
Mundu – Things That Float: Vol 1
London-based singer/songwriter/producer Mundu is back with another seismic wave of intoxicating soul. If Mundu’s not on your radar yet, this is the love that your ears needs for the fall/winter. Take it all in.
Belly – Inzombia
Belly’s come a long way from dropping singles around the Stanley Cup finals. With his fourth studio album here and ready and Jadakiss, Young Thug, and Future ready to go back and forth, you might find yourself swimming in the murky Inzombia, if you’re not careful.
Fatt Father – Veterans Day
Fatt Father is a Detroit veteran ready to go to war at any given minute. The first single from his new album Veterans Day is already a stunner, so imagine just how hard-hitting the rest of the project will be.
Code Nine & Purpose – Below Sumerian Skies
Code Nine & Purpose have joined forces for 14 tracks of hardcore beats and rhymes that you shouldn’t miss. Check this joint out below.
