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.
