Monday Blues & Beats Vol. 36

Here we are, it’s Monday.

Lupe Fiasco is hyping up all his lasers with another single from the upcoming Food & Liquor II. 

Top Dawg Entertainment showed some love for their fans. Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q & Ab-Soul aka Black Hippy, all dropped free tracks this week.

D-WHY dropped his first official all-original project, Don’t Flatter Yourself. Give it a full listen if you haven’t already.

New singles from Ryan Leslie, A$AP Mob, Picture, India Shawn and more.

Lupe Fiasco – Lamborghini Angels

This serves as the third single off the upcoming LP The Great American Rap Album Part 1. More conscious Hip Hop from the Chi-town emcee.

DJ Khaled – They Ready (feat. J. Cole, Big K.R.I.T. & Kendrick Lamar)

…and he does it again. Khaled really showing diversity and new direction with the new album. All three of these sophomore’s go in hard on this joint. Listen closely to K. Dot, he’s concise and complex, K.R.I.T sounds like his inspiration T.I., Cole on the beat and coincidentally drops a TIP reference.

Kendrick Lamar – Westside, Right On Time (feat. Young Jeezy)

Top Dawg Entertainment had a ‘Fan Appreciation Week,’ where each artist released a free track. Lamar enlisted Canei Finch, who drops a fat beat over a gorgeous sample. Jeezy steps in the booth to add that trap sound. Look out for good kid, m.A.A.d city this fall.

Jay Rock – YOLA

Jay Rock goes in a little rough and grittier, beat courtesy of Dave Free.

ScHoolboy Q – Party

Q has a little more fun over this Kenny Beats production.

Ab-Soul – Nibiru

Soul raps about the infamous doomsday event that’s supposed to happen in the 21st century. JMSN threw together this spacey beat.

Picture – True

Step into this electronic bliss and escape with what summer we have left. True EP out now.

Ryan Leslie – Riviera Flow (feat. Raekwon)

Originally thought to be titled “Live Good” (due to the hook), R. Les sets a release date for the long-awaited Les Is More, October 23.

D-WHY – New York Times

D-WHY finally drops his much anticipated first all-orginal project Don’t Flatter Yourself which I advise you download in full to the right –>. This number received James Bond like visuals. Produced by D.Mile.

D-WHY – Good Will Stunting

D-WHY extends his vocal range for a melodic hook, while he does the usual on the verses. “Hair’s all messed up, so she wear a hat too/Call her Erykah Badu—get it…bad ‘do?” Produced by Marcus D’Tray.

Letting Up Despite Great Faults – Visions

The long-winded band name shoegazers are back with their second LP coming in October.

India Shawn – All I Have (feat. Hit-Boy & James Fauntleroy)

The Atlanta singer/songwriter has an impressive debut single featuring Hit and Fauntleroy.

Mist Glider – Without You.

Mist Glider’s sound has been described as a myriad of soothing melodies and wonky bass grooves guided by relaxing downtempo ambient boosting beats. Step in…

Thee Oh Sees – Flood’s New Light

The San Fran psychedelic/indie rock group is working on what feels like their tenth record.
