Monday Blues & Beats Vol. 63

Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe Remix

Happy Monday, hope everyone enjoyed St. Paddy’s Day and has recovered by now. The highly anticipated Kendrick Lamar remix featuring a man by the name of Jay-Z has finally arrived. Beyoncé responds to the confusion towards going on tour with no new music by dropping some (you guessed it) new music. Tsu Surf dropped his new tape, a couple singles from from Little Boots and Vampire Weekend, plus much more.

Kendrick Lamar – Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe (Remix) [feat. Jay-Z]

Mid-week, Young Guru premiered this monster of a remix during one of his sets at the SXSW festival. And K.Dot didn’t keep his fans waiting too long, the track hit iTunes tonight. We can argue back and forth as to who had the better verse, i’m just ecstatic these two are on a joint together. Grab this historic remix on iTunes

Vampire Weekend – Diane Young

Vampire Weekend have announced their new album Modern Vampires of the City coming May 6. So far so good, the same fun sound, a little less airy.

Beyoncé – Bow Down/I Been On

Queen B silences the critics with some fresh material. With her tour on the way, people were seeking new music, and i’m sure this a sign of good things to come. Both joints produced by Hit-Boy, and Mrs. Carter is really feeling that Houston sound.

Baths – Miasma Sky

Will Wiesenfield aka Baths has his third full-length on the way – Obsidian (May 28). Despite the title, this chilled out Postal Service vibe paints a beautiful sky.

Lupe Fiasco – Jonylah Forever

Last week Jonylah Watkins was murdered at just 6-months old. As you probably know by now, Chicago is incredibly close to Lupe’s heart. In light of the event, he threw together this number.

Goldroom – Only You Can Show Me (feat. Mereki)

Another lushpiece from Josh Legg (Goldroom). He enlists fellow LA artist Mereki for a dreamy hook.

Yelawolf – Rhyme Room (feat. Raekwon & Killer Mike)

Yela dropped his Trunk Muzik Returns tape a few days ago, and it has some wicked collaborations on it. This might be the best, with Wu’s Raekwon and Killer Mike, who always delivers 110%.

Austra – Home

The former Polaris Music Prize Shortlisters are back for their second album. The Toronto trio have announced Olympia (June 18) via Paper Bag and Domino. They clearly haven’t taken their foot of the gas with the laid back Florence-esque tune.

Earl Sweatshirt – Whoa (feat. Tyler, The Creator)

After Earl released “Chum,” (a more sensitive joint), he responds with a hard number featuring The Creator.

Tsu Surf – Broken Dreams (feat. Ab-Soul & Fred The Gobson)

Tsu Surf – Loaded Gun (feat. Joe Budden)

Tsu Surf – Red Dresses (feat. Gabrielle Findly)

The 24-year old from Newark, NJ has dropped a new project, A New MoodIt was hard to pick just one favourite from the tape, so here’s a few. Three really deep joints with a three different moods.

Little Boots – Broken Record

Here’s the second single from LB’s sophomore album Nocturnes (May 8). A quirky pop sound with unique production.

  1. Wow!! Beyonce went hard on this, this some shit you expect from Rihanna. There’s always debate when Jay-z is on a track. I’m not going to get trapped on who’s verse is best but my favorite is K’s last verse…
    I like all 3 of the Surf joints, but who can fuck with Fred the Godson when he says shit like “Wrist rocky so my money I stallone out!”

    1. Yes!! I love that line from Fred, so underrated. I’m really feeling the Beyoncè tracks, her mixture of of sounds on an album is always a standout quality of hers (artistically). I feel like Kendrick stepped up his game hard with Jay being on the track, kinda like an Iverson/Jordan double crossover moment.
