LION BABE – Jump Hi (Feat. Childish Gambino)

LION BABE – Jump Hi (Feat. Childish Gambino)

It seems like Childish Gambino has some trouble staying out of the spotlight for more than a few days, and I couldn’t be more thankful. Fresh off a recent mixtape and music video release, he’s back again with a feature on LION BABE’s new single, “Jump Hi.” Unlike Gambino, the NYC duo hasn’t dropped anything […]

Alex Aff – Find Our Way

Alex Aff – Find Our Way

Alex Aff is an emerging rapper from my hometown of Durham, North Carolina, and I went to high school with the dude. That being said, I’m not just talking him up because I used to get down to his freestyles at house parties. When it comes to writing about music, I have to completely love […]

Dom McLennon – Push

Dom McLennon – Push

It’s good to know that Dom McLennon is representing in the rap game for us Carl Sagan worshipping, mystical-psychedelic-science types. Sometimes even the most creative gangster rap is hard to listen to if you eat kale and use the word chakra at least once a week. Sometimes you just want that divine-being real talk, that […]

Oceaán – Veritas

Oceaán – Veritas

Oceaán has been making a name for himself as one of those dudes synthesizing the most recent sounds into something singular, gem-like, and immensely personal. This track swings more poppy than his last few outings: his atmospheric dirges have lightened into this foot-grooving song. The beginning swirls tornado-like into your ears until it snaps into […]

Tink – Try Me

Tink – Try Me

Chicago’s Tink has slowly been carving herself a lane as a female rapper that runs between the six-year-old-cover-on-Ellen populism of Nikki Minaj (we still love you Nikki) and the featured-on-the-last-track-of-the-Blackstar-album cred of Jane Doe. As in, she makes dope music that’ll satisfy your friends who remember 3/7 nights a week and your friends that take […]

Low Res – Wax Treehouse

Low Res – Wax Treehouse

Low Res recently released his five track EP “Wax Treehouse” to the public this past August. Res is exactly what you are looking for if you are in need of something undeniably original. The 18-year-old experimental producer resides in London and identifies his genre as alternative electronic trip-hop. However, Low Res’s musical range is really […]

[Mixtape] Rome Fortune – Small VVorld

[Mixtape] Rome Fortune – Small VVorld

I can’t quite pin down what it is about Rome Fortune that I love so much; maybe it’s his green beard, his flow, or his complete fearlessness in experimenting with his style. All I know is that he creates dope, intriguing music. The young, slightly eccentric emcee has become a part of an innovative and […]

Jelani Blackman – Twenty//Three

Jelani Blackman – Twenty//Three

In the wake of a recent physics midterm that barely left my sanity or dignity in tact, my creative energy has been utterly suffocated this week. This track was just what I needed to kick-start that energy and get something besides projectile motion and force diagrams in my head. Within the first 15 seconds, “Twenty//Three” […]
