Anybody who knows anything about Majid Jordan knows that they were the writers of Drake’s 2013 hit “Just Hold On, We’re Going Home”. Since the birth of that track, Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman have been steadily working for the OVO team as songwriters and producing on their own music as an R&B Dance duo. They eventually dropped their infectious EP A Place Like This in 2014 and we have been patiently waiting for a full length project since.
The wait was definitely worth it, and this was obvious the moment they dropped their first single, “My Love” featuring Drake. From there they previewed the album with a handful of releases, all of which you can hear below. If you’re feeling the OVO duo’s debut album, you can purchase it now.
Comprised of producer Jimmy Giannopoulos (LOLAWOLF and Mothxr) and bassist Jenny Lee (Warpaint), Crewshade is a new punk hip-hop duo out of New York. Their sound is reminiscent of The Beastie Boys on their new track “Julio’s A Narc”, with its raw vocals, heavy drum and bass riffs. Take a listen below and follow Crewshade on Soundcloud.
Tennessee rapper Shawn Cooley drops visuals to Beast Mode and this one will keep you at the edge of your seat, literally. Shawn wrote, produced, and of course, performed the track himself and the video serves as a sneak peak to his upcoming project entitled The Curse of a Dreamer. Convince yourself of the triple-thread abilities of this up- and coming emcee by peeping the video. Add Shawn Cooley on Facebook, check out his tracks on Soundcloud and subscribe to his Youtube channel. It’s worth it!
