metric-weight(insert cliche line of drug dealer turned rapper boasting his rates and sales for illegal substances)

Now that February is almost over, Spring is coming right?! And that means music festivals and outdoor parties. The best part? No more conversations or complaining about the weather. Let’s fast forward to the warmer days with some music that will make your weekend that much better, whether you’re out and about or just huddled up indoors.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Chill Moody – “nicethings Fall Apart” (Prod. JoeLogic)

The Philly emcee paid homage to The Roots’ Things Fall Apart album which turned 15 this month. We think he did right by the legendary Roots crew. What do you think?

Mike the Martyr – “F*ck Basquiat”

Ever get tired of rappers name dropping artists like Warhol and Basquiat? So did Mike. No disrespect to the legend, but Mike is out to make his own waves.

Twoiney Lo – “Tell Me” (Prod. Cool Yeti)

Twoiney wanted to give his fans an update on his whereabouts and we get just that-not just physically but mentally. Oh, and the Baltimore emcee is only 17.

Alexander Dreamer – “For The Record” (Prod. Alexander Dreamer)

Once this kid makes it big, be sure to revisit this track. We’re pretty sure not much will have changed about his character by then. That’s what makes the great artists, great.

Denzel Curry – “Stadium Starship” (Prod. The Pyrvmids)

The Florida emcee is back with a track that may not be as hype as his other hits but it contains just as much emotion. Denzel meditates on the restless streets. Float on.

Nickelus F (feat. Michael Millions) – “Fishin'” (Prod. Nickelus F)

Sweet Petey is joined by Millions on his self produced, slow motion Western soundtrack. It’s just a matter of time before we get a full project from this dude.

Mélat – “Golden” (Prod. Jansport J)

One of my favorite new producers, Jansport J (congrats again on that Delicious Vinyl look), puts forth his funkiest foot forward for this Melat release. Sounds like sweet, sweet honey.

Gzus Piece (feat. Sulaiman) – “Swine Flu” (Prod. Doc Da Mindbenda & Gzus Piece)

The message on this one is pretty straightforward. Blast this as you drive away, if a cop ever pulls you over for a bogus reason. #Treated

Yung Nate (feat. Big T) – “Nobody Knows” (Prod. Hitman)

Although it won’t end up on his illumiNate project, this one certainly deserves your attention. Nate is joined by URL battle rapper Big T to show you how much you don’t know about their passion for this Rap game.

HMAN (feat. Freeway) – “Never In A Million Years”

As the saying goes, if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything. The Philly Freezer and the Quebec emcee tell you what they stand for.
