- Artist | Kim
- Song | “Chief Rocka”
For the last post, let’s rock it vintage for a second, courtesy of Kim. “Chief Rocka” gets the Better Forever, Forever Better treatment, and Kim completely goes off with the bars (mainly the second verse; love how he got in the pocket on that one) to prove a point. I’m glad he’s still taking his time crafting new music, and even more glad that homie’s still nice with the pen on the rhymes. Check out the freeverses up top, and enjoy it.
Mickey Factz dropped a pretty dope mixtape the other day, and you should definitely check back for the review that’s coming later this week. That being said, this joint’s one of the best intros I’ve heard in a while due to the gospel sample that’s underlying the themes of hunger from Mickey. The bars are all intact, and the full circle concept from the “4.14” single we’ve heard in his earlier project is brought to fruition with “4:14 Am.” Keep spittin’ out dreams, homie… This is dope.
Straight out the submission box, Tre Redeau initially submitted his video with Dizzy Wright (“Doja“, I actually included the visual below if you’re interested), but after skimming his project, Kool-Aid Stand, “What’s The Move” jumped out as a bit more presentable in this format. The hook is “Drake-ish”, but the song bangs something serious, and it’s extremely infectious. Kool-Aid Stand has some DOPE tracks on it, so be sure to check back later for more on that one.
Bonus | “Doja” (feat. Dizzy Wright)
I got this in my submission box a couple of days ago, and I finally got a chance to check it out while whittling down the amount of submissions, and we may have something right here with New Track City. Here’s a quick rundown before you press play on “Fortune” up top. It’s a trio of artists from Federal Way/Seattle, with Bem and Chi. Stone being the rappers and Dru being the “in-house producer”, so to speak. The interesting thing here is that this actually just sounds really good. The vibes are all present, and I wanted a song to jump out at me to make it easier to present the dopeness…
See, now you can press play on “Fortune.” Their latest project, Spring Exceeds Winter, dropped at the beginning of this month, so check out the sample up top (even if I may disagree with the title, because H O O D I E S E A S O N is supreme). There’s a possibility you’ll see more music from them on the site, so keep it locked. If you need more from them, click the link up top for more.
- Artist | Blended Babies & Anderson .Paak (feat, Asher Roth)
- Song | “Make It Work”
- Project | The Anderson .Paak EP (Sept. 25th, 2015)
This single’s been o the internet for a month, and the internet hasn’t exploded. It confuses me. Anderson .Paak is an incredibly dope artist, and an even better performer (not to mention a dope person; I got to talk with him for a couple minutes while he was on tour with Earl Sweatshirt), so to stumble across this collaborative EP that’s dropping in the next couple weeks with The Blended Babies was probably the highlight of my day so far. It’s nothing like dope music to help you deal with dumb people in real life, so press play and let those worries from the day melt off.
Oh, Asher Roth is here, too. Did I mention that? Also, I’m pretty sure Donnie Trumpet makes an appearance towards the end… This just feels good, you know?
