Lloyd – On Call feat. Big K.R.I.T. [@lloyd_yg @BIGKRIT @SladeDaMonsta]

Slada Da Monsta - Hotter Than July_cover

As far as unlikely collabs go, Lloyd working with Big K.R.I.T. certainly is a different kind of pair. Lloyd’s light voice crooning is the polar opposite to K.R.I.T.ical’s Southern drawl and molasses flow; and yet, somehow brought together on Slade Da Monsta’s new Hotter Than July 19th mixtape, you can’t help but wonder why they’d […]

Big K.R.I.T. To Re-Release Mixtapes in Limited ‘The Underground Edition’ Set [@BIGKRIT]

Big KRIT - Underground Edition Release

For years, we’ve been saying that Big K.R.I.T. may have dropped a ball in giving us his earliest releases for free. When K.R.I.T.ical dropped his debut K.R.I.T. Wuz Here back in 2010, he initiated a campaign of sorts of dropping album-quality mixtapes. It was far from a novel concept, but it wasn’t until K.R.I.T. did […]

OneHunnidt Announces ‘Summer Breeze’ Mixtape, Drops “No Flex Zone” [@onehunnidt @fattyhaddy]

OneHunnidt - Summer Breeze_cover

No, this doesn’t mean that OneHunnidt’s long-awaited Field Sobriety project has been scrapped. It’s still in the oven but has now been moved back to a fall release. Just because his fans and followers have been patient with him, however, ‘Hunnidt has decided that he won’t leave them hanging for the summer. The Houston-based rapper […]

Download Boston George’s ‘Trappin In Traffic’ [@bostongeorgeamg @djdrama @djmrrogers]

trappin-in-traffic-cover

Here’s something to note about Boston Georoge, the Houston goon turned rapper – everything about him feels expanded. Balloon like. It’s not just a car with him, it’s the yelling yellow Lamborghini that causes plenty of stares when it zooms by. It’s not a mixtape, it’s a heavy handed product with features from industry heavyweights […]

Late Night Cruisin’: Le$ & Cookin’ Soul Drop ‘ACE’ [@settle4les @cookinsoul #ace]

ace-cover

When he’s on, Le$ sounds as if he’s comfortably escorting you through a narrative of the life he’s lived and the life he’s soon to embark on. Through billowing clouds of weed smoke and exhaled expressions, the Houston-to-Louisiana rapper has built up a fanbase who readily accept that his rasp knocks with a precision. A […]

Stream Hanz Nobe’s ‘Social Light’ Beat Tape [@hanznobe]

social-light-cover

The Space City Beat Battle has allowed for countless names to filter out into the production world. Some are rather established in the Houston scene, others languishing on with the thought that their next creation could be the one and then there’s others like Hanz Nobe, soaking in knowledge while fine tuning his craft at […]

So Fresh, So Clean: Stream Like of Pac Div’s ‘ZESTY’ Instrumental Album [@callmelike #ZESTY]

LIKE (of Pac Div) - ZESTY_cover

Cali-based rap group Pac Div has been all but quiet these last few years. Maybe they’ve felt less compelled to put out the West Coast sounds since it’s now becoming the primary thing on the airwaves, but that doesn’t mean they’ve been forgotten… or that they’ve stopped hustling. Look no further than Like, the producer […]

DJ Auditory Chops & Screws Trey Songz’ ‘Trigga’ [@djauditory @treysongz #trigga]

trigga-cs-cover

We haven’t fully gotten to dig into Trey Songz’ Trigga LP to weigh in but DJ Auditory already has. And it made him a believer. Trigga to Tory is one of those R&B albums that exists for the moment. That’s no fault of Songz, it’s been a long argument that his music doesn’t necessarily translate […]

Hoodstar Chantz & DJ Auditory – ‘Bart Pimpson 2′ Mixtape [@hoodstarchantz @djauditory]

bart-pimpson-2-cover

A year ago, DJ Auditory helped Hoodstar Chantz move away from his Houston to Los Angeles sabbatical and create something that sounded more like home. Bart Pimpson acted just like a Southside screw tape, crafted solely to push the artist and his music, not necessarily the overall sound and quality. That isn’t a knock on […]
