PRODUCERS: Alchemist & Oh No PROJECT: Welcome To Los Santos [Soundtrack] RELEASED: April 14
Curren$y teamed up with Freddie Gibbs for the new airy track “Fetti”. Making sure not to leave out the classic boom bap best, this psychadelic tune has a 1970’s influence. The song which is included on the soundtrack The Alchemist and Oh No Present Welcome to Los Santos for the video game Grand Theft Auto V, has a warm feel. Deep vocals of both Curren$y and Gibbs, give the piece an extra boost of g-funk; and with the sounds of a snake charmer working its magic and drum rolls, the background gets provided with a dose of calmness. Calm is not what one would expect from a man with a recently released album: Pilot Talk 3 and who is on a Pilot Talk 3 tour. Curren$y is not the only one with a hefty schedule, Freddie Gibbs is on tour up north and is looking forward to putting out the upcoming album Lifestyles of the Insane. Curren$y is just warming up for his appearance in South Florida, June 5th at Grand Central, but until then check out his new joint.
PRODUCER: Ducko McFli LATEST SOLO MIXTAPE: Danco James | Download LATEST TWO 9 ALBUM: B4FRVR | Download
Group a bunch of Atlanta artists in a studio together and what do you get? Curtis Williams‘ new tune “<3” featuring Cam Sheely and J. I. D. which is light and collected but still tied to generous verses. The jazzy background that accompanies the smooth lines is on the opposite side of the spectrum compared to Cam Sheeley‘s woodsy and bass driven track “All The Money”. Hear the new collaboration above.
DIRECTOR: CJ Wallis PRODUCER: Ski Beatz NEW ALBUM: Pilot Talk 3 | Purchase
With Pilot Talk 3 out, Curren$y‘s simplistic style follows him in the new music video “Sidewalk Show”. The use of lifeless grass pictured behind his white shoes show off his clean and fresh look that could be a reference to how he rose from nothing. You can catch Spitta in your city, who is currently on the road for the ‘Pilot Talk 3’ Tour with some members of the Jet Life crew.
PRODUCER: Chill Go Hard LATEST MIXTAPE: T.R.U. Jack City | Download
With his latest mixtape T. R. U. Jack City already out, 2 Chainz drops “Jump”, which explores the mind of 2 Chainz and his truthfulness. The cold beats and playful backup vocals add to the tune. Instead of typical catchy hooks, The Chill Go Hard-produced song conveys 2 Chainz beast mentality: “I’m a beast in the streets, Im a beast off the leash”. Check out the new hit above.
PRODUCER: Tuger LATEST PROJECT: Lamb$ – Fukk Karma EP LATEST PROJECT: Shy Glizzy – Law 3: Now or Never
Lamb$ new single “Wonder” which features Shy Glizzy is a bowl of secrecy. Ohio native, not to be mixed up with the UK duo Lamb, dives headfirst into the mixture and delivers a frivolous ballad. Already convinced the song is going to be frenetic, Tuger digs in and adds a reverberated bass to the back line. Shy Glizzy who has been making milestones: being featured on Johnny Cinco’sTrap Religious album, appearing at RollingLoud, and releasing the hard cutting song “Awwsome”. Glizzy will soon be serving up a platter of Glizzy Gang delicacies with his upcoming mixtape Be Careful. Until then take a listen to “Wonder” above.
PRODUCER: 6ix MIXED AND MASTERED BY: Nick Breton RECORDING STUDIO: Truth Studios
After making grand appearances on tour with Logic, Christmas settles into a state of tranquility in his new single “ADHD”. His lively presence, playful babble and well known catchphrase ‘tick tick’ make way and let Christmas’ character shine through. A multitude of thoughts and feelings occuring simultaneously is common with ADHD victims. Boston Native conveys these signs saying “they said that I can’t pay attention,” “I be skipping therapy because it be loud as shit,” “but ADHD make you crazy so I…”. The first taste of the 6ix produced song sets the mood, and takes the audience to the gates of serenity. Christmas slithers into his deep emotions and spills out some touchy lyrics: “when I was 6 I remembered no one vouched for shit,” “I know nobody ever thought that I’d amount to this”. From the calm vibes of his tracks “Sometimes”, “Stepbrothers”, and “Leonard Washington” to the more frenetic “The Price is Right”, there is no question that Christmas’ versatility isn’t golden. With Is This Art? being his last mixtape, Christmas might just dive into a pool of genres and pick up a thing or two for future songs. Until then take a listen to his new joint.
PRODUCER: Deko LATEST PROJECT: Johnny Cinco: Trap Religious LATEST PROJECT: OG Maco: 15
OG Maco and Johnny Cinco collaborate in the newly released “Facecard”. This stony-faced tune has an unnerving approach unlike OG Maco’s “Night Like This” remix or Cinco’s “Virtual Trapping” track. The dark piano rifts and reverberated bass capture the song’s serious demeanor. With Johnny Cinco’s mixtape Trap Religious fresh off the boat, the Deko produced “Facecard” was certainly unexpected.
