Brooklyn native Dom O Briggs drops off his latest offering, Mr. Briggs. Dope beats, funky rhymes, definitely gonna be giving this one some play in the upcoming summer months..

We've heard Sir Charles Inglish rapping on The Cool Kids albums. We've heard him produce for other people, and even release full instrumental projects. But now we have the official debut collection of Chuck Inglish solo rap tunes. This is however, the prelude EP to his upcoming debut album, Convertables. So grab this ditty for free, get hooked, and pay for the next one.
Odd Future's production duo of Matt Martians (The Internet) and Pyramid Vritra drop off their third album this week, in The Jellyfish Mentality. Features include Earl, Mike, Domo, Hodgy, Casey, and the less predictable Jessy Boykins III, Kilo Kish, Mac Miller and a few more. I'm a huge fan of The Internet's production, so grabbing this was a no brainer for me. And for Free.99, you really can't go wrong.

New tape from the G.O.O.D. Music/Grand Hustle artist, fresh off his XXL 2013 Freshmen feature. This may sound like a terribly strange mashup, but this tape reminds me of what it would sound like if Future and Kid Cudi made an album together... I'm still not 100% sold on Travi$ Scott yet (or anyone with a $ in their name that isn't Curren$y), but this tape is definitely worth checking at least once.
I was on the fence about Murph when I first heard him. And while this album won't end up in my Top 20 at the end of the year, it's tough to listen to this and not recognize the potential. Most of the tracks are laid back, which I love. So if youre looking for something new to kick back and vibe to, definitely give this a few spins. I hope to see more of Murph Watkins in the future.
I stumbled across this artist the other day, and gave this song a listen strictly because of the Badu feature. And then I listened to another song. And then another, and then I bought his album. Bonobo is a British musician/producer, who's latest album, The North Borders, contains some of the smoothest instrumentation and production I've heard in a while. And I found myself vibing out just as much to the instrumental tracks as I was to the features. Great album. I highly suggest you check it out if you like music at all.
Le$ drops his second tape in under 2 months. I will be honest here and say I didn't care too much for his last one, but this time around it's all original beats and this shit is dope as fuck. You'd be wise to jump right in and download this, smooth as fuck SLAB music project.
Bama spitter Jackie Chan comes through with his second installment of Bruce Lean Chronicles and it's a monster that features, Yelawolf, Rittz, Big K.R.I.T., Juicy J, ST 2 Lettaz, Lil Wyte, Diamond, Mata & more and production from DJ Burn One, Block Beattaz and more.

What good is running a blog if I can't use it for a little shameless self promotion? Anyways here goes my first instrumental/beat tape project that I've ever released. It's a collection of shit that was created pretty much from the beginning of the year till now. Enjoy it, share it, do what you do. Hope you enjoy it. Props to my primo joe for the artwork.

I first heard of Tall Black Guy when he linked up with The Primeridian a couple years back for one of my favorite slept on albums of 2011. So when I randomly came across his name today, I immediately clicked the link. And GOTDAMN do my earlobes thanked me. This dude makes some of the illest jazzy laid back instrumental compositions I've heard. Stream it below for free, or drop 6 of those weird L's to grab it forever.

Once again I got caught slipping. Back in March, Raider Klan collaborator DJ Smokey put out this instrumental project. And man, if you've been in the dark like me, you're in for a fucking treat. Check it out and cop it.

Weather getting warmer. Its time for some vibed out Country Rap Tunes. Le$, Cheavy Woods, & Scotty ATL all link up with DJ Burn One to drop this smooth cut. Le$ E36 will be out later this month (28th). Eyes peeled.
The Weeknd does what we've come to expect, which is drop new material without any warning. Last week Able let go the first single, without any info on when the full project is set to drop. You'll get no complaints here, this shit is dope as fuck.

It has dawned on me that I have yet to post anything from ST 2 Lettaz....which is an outright travesty. He put out The G...The Growth & Development way back in March. I purchased it and for whatever moronic reason forgot to give it a spin. Well, the kid fucked up. The album is pretty fucking amazing. So in attempt to make up for lost time here goes a few of the video's from the project. Be sure to check out the album. Here goes his Bandcamp which has a few free projects on it.

The rapidly rising soundsmith Thelonious Martin keeps building a pretty stellar foundation. The young kid has consistently put out incredibly lush production. Saw this on his Soundcloud and just had to share.

Let me put you up on Houston's newest offering, emcee Anti-Lilly... Randomly hit play on the song below and I'm immediately excited for his forthcoming project Memoirs & The 90s, which is slated to drop this month... Kid definitely has talent. "A Million Stories" up top, "Clarissa (I Used To Love Her)" below.

First of all, let me say that if you have been keeping up with my monthly mixes, you'll recognize the dope, jazzy joint "QB" from my Feb. mix. Secondly, if you aren't familiar with Hannibal King, he may be one of my favorite producers ever right now. I've toyed with the idea of recording a mixtape using only his beats, myself. This dude is dope with is. Thirdly, Bryant Dope, while I know nothing about him, is really dope too. So you really can't go wrong with this tape. So listen to it now.

Which I usually like to keep to myself until the end of the month, but I'm trying to post more, so shut up. I'm pretty sure I've listened to this song like 8 times today.
