A brand new single from the Scottish experimental hip hop outfit Young Fathers. The group is getting set to drop a new full-length via Anticon on February 3rd. The title of this thing: DEAD.
“WAR” isn’t one of Young Fathers’ most hard-hitting tracks, but it is one of their strangest, alternating between intense stints of spoken word, and impassioned group singing. Enjoy!
While Because The Internet is much more likable and ambitious than Childish Gambino’s last commercial effort, Camp, this album is not without its hangups.
Aleph has some pretty hard-hitting tech house highlights, but most of the subdued tracks just simply aren’t as engaging, and only seem like they exist to balance out the aggressive moments here–a lot of which sound very similar.
Cali rapper Hopsin has a tight flow and rhymes that don’t mince words. While I like the more hard-hitting tracks on this new LP of his, there just aren’t enough of them to balance out the sickening melodrama that happens on a great deal of this new LP’s songs.
Southern rap titans Three Six Mafia are back under a different name–and with a slight lineup change–but that hasn’t stopped them from pulling together one of the rawest, grimiest mixtapes to drop this year.
The new Sadsic album is one of the heartiest collections of beats that you’ll come across this year, featuring over an hour’s worth of psychedelic, kick-heavy odds ‘n’ ends.
Detroit rapper Quelle Chris isn’t the most energetic MC, but his laid-back delivery approach is complemented with an eccentric cadence, thought-provoking bars, and some ridiculous song topics. If only his bold ideas were a little more well-organized, refined.
The latest release from songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Devonte Hynes, a.k.a. Blood Orange, engages in some of the most excruciating 80s revivalism I’ve heard all year.
Californian singer and model Sky Ferreira’s full-length debut leaves a lot to be desired outside of the album’s handful of enjoyable pop songs.
