Good Monday to everyone, hope the weekend was full of thrilling activities. Now that it’s time to get back to work, it’s time to counter that with new tunes. This week, Nosaj Thing hooked up with a fellow chillwaver Toro Y Moi, and The Strokes are back! Pusha T dropped his long-awaited Wrath Of Caine today, and look out for fellow G.O.O.D. Music rapper CyHi Tha Prynce, who drops his tomorrow. We also get our first taste of the JMSN/Ab-Soul project, along with new material from MSMR, Young Galaxy, Slum Village and more.
Jason Chung (aka Nosaj Thing) who has produced for the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Kid Cudi, just dropped his third LP called Home. This Chillwave duo create a intricate dream.
Finally, a new single from the New York duo MS MR, and it sounds very Florence & The Machine-esque. I’ve been living off their 4-track EP and demos for too long now. They’ve announced their debut LP Second Hand Rapture which should be set for May 14. Get their Candy Bar Creep Show – EP on iTunes
This comes from the Dirty Slums 2 mixtape which drops tomorrow. Produced by Young RJ
This bonus track from Trouble Man surfaced awhile ago, unfortunately the quality was awful. Now it’s here in CDQ and makes the joint just that much better. Bobby Ray and KDot go in, while Kris Stephens (signed to TIP and Tank) gives a glorious hook.
The former Clipse member has dropped the highly anticipate Wrath of Caine, and despite GOOD’s tendencies, it was actually released today. The 11-track tape has a handful of features and diverse production. This one features Brooklyn’s Troy Ave and Harry Fraud on the beat. Download the full tape HERE
Another joint from the tape, produced by The Neptunes and do I wish it was longer then 2 minutes. Download Wrath of Caine
These two have worked together on numerous occasions, and have announced a joint LP Unit 6 which comes out February via Top Dawg Entertainment and White Room Records.
Havoc (of Mobb Deep) is dropping his first solo album in four years entitled 13. The theme of this joint speaks heavily to the rappers that backstab, throw bottles in clubs, and drop subtle disses.
The Vancouver-based indie/dream pop group have their fourth LP on the way called Ultramarine.
Look out for CyHi’s mixtape Ivy League: Kick Back which drops tomorrow. The Prynce claims it’s ‘feel good music.’
The New York group is back to follow up their last record Angles. This offering serves as the first single, and it’s a little different, but still very Strokes like.
