West Coast’s self-appointed ambassador The Game is back with the sequel to his critically acclaimed debut album, The Documentary. Hate him or love him, the underdog is back on top with this one. And you can credit that to the executive production of Dr. Dre, giving The Game some of the best beats and soundscape he has had in years.
After being criticized for falling off, the hothead of rap sounds like a reinvigorated emcee on this new project… he’s actually spitting bars and going in great detail about his Compton experiences (thank you Kendrick?). Speaking of Mr. Lamar, he’s featured on the album including Dr. Dre, Diddy, Future, Ab-Soul, Q-Tip, and Kanye West.
Even though it spans over an hour, The Documentary 2 is one of the most cohesive hip hop albums of 2015. Our favorite tracks through the first couple listens have to be “On Me”, “Standing On Ferraris”, and “Hashtag”.
Stream the whole album below, and let us know what you think! Reach us on Facebook or Twitter.
Last week we posted a new song from Kasbo, and we have not been able to stop listening to it since. Now we have the pleasure of presenting his Umbrella Club EP, which includes “I Don’t Get” and four more wonderfully produced tracks from the 19 year old Swede. Be sure to check him out in a city near you as he will be opening up for Odesza throughout their Fall 2015 tour.
Zane Lowe just premiered this new track from GoldLink on his Beats1 Radio show. Along with announcing, And After That, We Didn’t Talk, a new LP from the Californian emcee due to come out in November. Stream “Spectrum” below.
Rass Kass and Jack Splash have come together for a collaborative project under the alias of Semi Hendrix. Here’s “M.A.S.H.” featuring Kurupt, off their album, Breakfast At Banksy’s, out next week.
If you’re from New York, you know how pivotal the bodega man is to your local community. They have everything and anything you could need at pretty much all hours of the day. These dudes should receive infinite love and are living legends in their own right, and BK Hippy and Chocolate Brown are advocates of this. Their new track “Papi’s N Ahk$” is the ultimate tribute to the bodega gawds and is the first single off their upcoming project 5 AM On Myrtle.
After spending a year working with Duran Duran on their recent album Paper Gods, Mr Hudson is back with his new song “Dancing Thru It”. In the Souncloud description of the track, he talks about his experiences with Simon Le Bon and how it has made him even more focused into his art and musical production. He also states that he’s got a couple jams he’s ready to release before the end of the year, which we’ll be on the lookout for after hearing this one.
Our fascination with Tame Impala continues to grow with each live performance. Last night, they had the entirety of Terminal 5 in New York City absolutely mesmerized with their psychedelic visuals and Kevin Parker and the gang’s ability to execute perfect live renditions of their masterful psych-rock compositions.”The Less I Know The Better”, one of the catchier tracks off their latest album, Currents, was definitely a top crowd pleaser within their 2 hour set. If you weren’t there, we sincerely feel for you…. but here’s a recording of them performing that tune on last night’s Late Show With Stephen Colbert to hold you down.
Joey Bada$$ joins Glass Animals on their new song, “Lose Control”. Stream below.
