It’s Monday, and it’s time to jump into some new tunes. Hopefully everyone is settled comfortably in whatever this fall has brought them, be that school, a new job, or just the same old, same old.
Frank Ocean performed on Saturday Night Live and released video for “Pyramids” (check both out here if you missed them), and to add flattery to the mix, Canadian indie rockers the Arkells covered one of his songs. J. Cole also had a busy week, amongst the release of a brand new joint, he aimed shots at Diggy (again) during a live performance, and the young Simmons responded with a diss track. Hit-Boy also found himself featured and producing on two new tracks.
Also in the mix, new material from the G.O.O.D. crew, Teen Daze, Drake, DJ Drama, The Zolas, Fabolous, T.I. and more.
After dissing Diggy live, Cole let this self-produced track go via Twitter. It features a Cee-Lo Green sample.
The Canadian group showing appreciation for Mr. Ocean with a cover worthy of multiple listens. Thanks to @marisabruch, for waking me up with this track.
With Cruel Summer dropping tomorrow, this acts as the last promo track, not that it needs anymore. Features verses from Kanye West, Big Sean & 2 Chainz. Produced by Kanye with some help from Hudson Mohawke, who did his thing on the record, make sure you pick it up tomorrow.
Local Vancouver DJ does it again with a highly addictive, upbeat track that will make you want to move your feet wherever you are.
The origin and future of this track is still up in the air, but for now why not enjoy it. Produced by Boi-1da & D-10.
RZA is on the cusp of his directorial debut with The Man with the Iron Fists, and has put together an incredibly diverse soundtrack. This one was produced by Frank Dukes and S1.
Another banger from Drama with good features and a fantastic beat from Cardiak. Quality Street Music drops October 2.
TIP has released another promo track for the long-awaited upcoming LP Trouble Man. Go-to produced DJ Toomp put this together.
Loso using Weezy’s distaste for the Big Apple for the hook. Another great production from Just Blaze, who never seems to slow down.
Kent working with Hit-Boy once again, who produced this joint and was featured on his last track.
Hit on his emcee grind once again, working with Audio Push, produced by Rey Reel.
Vancouver based indie poppers have a new project coming up called Ancient Mars. It hits shelves October 2, and this is the first taste of it.
Scoe shows appreciation for Dr. Dre and West Coast hip hop, and enlists a fitting feature and Jake One on the beat.
A second release from the Vancouver DJ in the last two weeks. Inner Mansions is on it’s way.
Another freebie from the LA rapper, going in on Ja Rule’s classic “Put It On Me.”
