Monday Blues & Beats Vol. 32

Wake up and tune those ears in to the Monday morning beats.

Rick Ross dropped the most highly anticipated collaboration on not only his record, but perhaps of the year. Two legends, and one in the making.

Talib Kweli is showing everybody he’s still relevant, while G.O.O.D. Music’s CyHi The Prynce is trying to get his footing.

2 Chainz dropped his highly anticipated single featuring verses and production from Kanye West.

New singles from SBTRKT, Two Door Cinema Club, Digits, JoJo and Danny Brown.

Talib Kweli – Push Thru (feat. Kendrick Lamar & Curren$y)

Ecstatic is the only way to describe how I felt when I saw Talib not only dropped a new track, but featured Kendrick and Curren$y. This smooth rolling summer jam is produced by S1 (Kanye West, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Little Brother).

2 Chainz – Birthday Song (feat. Kanye West)

[UPDATE: Explicit] A deep ominous beat full of switch-ups and curve balls courtesy of Kanye West and Sonny Digital. 2 Chainz is proving there’s more than just hype surrounding his name.

SBTRKT – Gloss

Monday morning also brings a brand new track from Aaron Jerome, the UK DJ masquerading (or mask) as SBTRKT. An incredibly fitting title for the track.

Rick Ross – 3 Kingz (feat. Dr. Dre & Jay-Z)

Jake One produced this classic beat that suits the company perfectly.  God Forgives, I Don’t out on July 31.

Two Door Cinema Club – Sleep Alone

The Irish group are gearing up for their sophomore record this fall, following the highly successful Tourist History. So far, the first single does not disappoint. This pop-infused jam will find it’s way into your summer playlist and have you tapping your toes.

CyHi The Prynce – Food Savers & Scissors (feat. ScHoolBoy Q)

Ivy League Club dropped last week and features a good variety of artists and producers. I have high hopes for the young G.O.O.D. emcee. Produced by Beat Billionaire.

CyHi The Prynce – Entourage (feat. Hit-Boy)

This joint is one of my favourites from the tape and has Hit-Boy doing his thing once again, and we’re not talking about the keys. Produced by Illusive Orchestra.

Digits – Where Do You Belong?

Alt Altman is his name. Canadian solo act hovering around the Synth Pop/New Age R&B sound is bound to have you finding the repeat button.

JoJo – Demonstrate

Yes, there’s a JoJo track in this week’s mix. The girl has been working hard to get back into the relevant music scene. She’s enlisted Noah Shebib (40), Drake’s right-hand man for the production and he delivers like he always does.

Danny Brown – Molly Ringwald

The whacky Danny Brown hooks up with producer AraabMuzik for this track. And yes, this song is about redheads.
