Slaughterhouse surprises their incredibly dedicated fan base with a 10-track mixtape today. The hip-hop supergroup consisting of Joe Budden, Royce Da 5’9″, Crooked I and Joell Ortiz add some fresh elements to their repertoire. We all know these boys constantly bring bars to the table, that’s a given, but their choice of producers and beats gave this project a new spark. Hit the jump for the tracklist, production credits and download.
As promised, De La Soul has finished with the teasing, and have dropped their latest project for free. Smell the Da.I.S.Y. is entirely produced by the late legend, J Dilla. This is truly an extraordinary gift from the boys of Long Island, NY; a gift I would gladly pay good money for. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Posdnuos called Dilla “the Tupac of producers,” and this project is a clear testament to that statement.
G.O.O.D. Music’s CyHi The Prynce has resurfaced with a brand new mixtape in hand. It’s been over a year since we’ve heard from Cydel Young, but the wait was worth it. 18 tracks (14 minus the interludes & ‘tro’s), and not a single feature required. The 29-year old from Georgia carries the weight of the tape with ease, slanging bars for days. Watch out for CyHi to make a splash in 2014.
With Rich Forever dropping a few days ago, Rozay takes over Vol. 5. Not to be outdone by the latest EP from Memoryhouse, the Toronto Dream Pop group who recently signed with Sub Pop, LP set for February 28th. The blog buzzing Grimes and her new track of looping pianos and synths wandered into the mix. Ryan Leslie dropped another phenomenal single in preparation for Les Is More.
