Apathy x O.C. – “Soviet Official” (Prod. By MoSS) [Video]

The killer lyrical combo Apathy & O.C. let another one off “Perestroika” though? Ha! Trying to act ‘fake surprised’… C’mon maaannn! When the music is this dope, the EASY way to promote is to keep leaking heat to the street, little by little. This leak is in visual format – “Soviet Official” (produced by MoSS).

R&B: Musiq Soulchild – “Sooner Or Later”

A double album is always a risky bet for artists. High risk of overplaying your hand, as you are giving lots of music for a reasonable price, with the perception of higher ‘value.’ But often the result is a watered down product, or one with too many tracks between the ‘good’ joints.

Make your own judgments about what Musiq is trying to do with his double LP. But we know you will come to like at least one jawn… “Sooner Or Later”

ChanHays – “Running” feat. Skyzoo x Uptown XO x Elzhi

Yooo! This jawn right here dude. It will have you exclaiming, “WHO is this ChanHays cat?!!?” Normal reassurers might respond, “Don’t worry about it.”

But eff that! WORRY! This artist is gonna be a problem for a long while. And though you might not know ChanHays, but looking at this upcoming album’s credits, Conway The Machine, Roc Marciano, Pharoahe Monch, Rapper Big Pooh, Homeboy Sandman, Masta Ace, and several more feature artists do! And ChanHays’ “Running” (featuring Skyzoo, Uptown XO & eLZhi) is an apropos intro. Facts! Straight Outta Halifax with it.

Funk/Soul: Thundercat – “Show You The Way” feat. Michael McDonald x Kenny Loggins (Video)

Okay… Thundercat is OUT THERE! See, “Them Changes” was already… er, eccentric. Well, this is a sequel to that; and it is CRAY in the best way. Like features (and actual appearances) from Doobie Bro Michael McDonald and Kenny “Footloose” Loggins. REALLY the best way. Awesomeness from the ’80s travels to the future to continue our tale of the armless Samurai.

(Yeah. Just watch!)

Young RJ – “Blaq Royalty” (Album Stream)

Impressive for a debut LP. Although heads are like, “about damn time, RJ,” it is still a debut. It’s been said you are known by the company you keep. Applied to a project… known by the features. So peep: J Ivy, Pete Rock, Boldy James, BJ The Chicago Kid, Joyner Lucas, Statik Selektah, Supa Kaine, and Guilty Simpson. That’s a LOT of DOPE company! Enjoy this FREE stream.

Jazz/Soul: The Baylor Project – “Laugh And Move On” (Video)

You remember Zhané (pronounced Jah-Nay) from back in the day. Well, everybody… can get some more ‘groove your body’ music. But this is some super-warm, super-slow, squeeze-a-sweety and chill music. Jean Baylor got it done with her hubby Marcus. Awesome song and vid. Album out now (linked below).

Married musicians, vocalist Jean Baylor (formerly of the platinum-selling R&B duo Zhané) and Marcus Baylor, former drummer of the Grammy Award-winning Yellowjackets have created a captivating “project” that meets at the 3-way intersection of Jazz, Gospel and Legacy. Reminiscent of classic soul, “Laugh and Move On” speaks to the strength of the human spirit. No doubt, a very unique album that soothes the soul.

L’Orange – “The Everyday Illusion” (Instrumental)

Another nice-nice from “The Ordinary Man” LP (due out next month). Gotta love how dude does the old, old school sound bit samples in his music… like in this “Everyday Illusion” instrumental.

L’ORANGE – THE EVERYDAY ILLUSION | THE ORDINARY MAN (PRE-ORDER)

Raven Felix – “Job Done” feat. Wiz Khalifa

Well, well, Wiz. She’s cute. You should introduce us. Oh… that’s what this music is about? Thanks.

So, okay folks. Like always for Khalifa’s camp, it’s Taylor Gang or Die! And with Raven Felix on this (and that cover – whew!), let’s just say that there won’t be a need for much arm-twisting to check for Khalifa and his artist Felix on this “Job Done” work (off that Valifornication, by Raven Felix, out now)!

But we’re gonna listen for them bars though. This is Hip-Hop!

RAVEN FELIX – JOB DONE FEAT. WIZ KHALIFA | VALIFORNICATION (LP)

L’Orange – “The Difference” feat. Blu x Elzhi

Producer L’Orange is coming straight out of Tennessee with the new flavor. Just add Blu & eLZhi and stir! Listen, they got the recipe. The beat, with the bars, poured in, scratched the f**k up by DJ Noumenon… It makes “The Difference.”

Fresh off “The Ordinary Man” LP due out next month (pre-order link below).

Snoop Dogg – “Toss It” feat. Too $hort (Video)

Jump in the Brougham…beeyotch!

Hmmm… Several dogs, but looks like there are no actual bitches in this visual. Lots and lots of Honeyz in this for the Doggy Dogg’s dog. Literally brought sand to the beach in this visual. See what happens when you turn your son (Cordell Broadus) loose on a video, Snoop? Hahaaa! Guesting on the track: None other than Oaktown’s Too Short pimpin’!

“Neva Left” is out now.

Apollo Brown x Planet Asia – “Get Back” (Video)

Yeah. Another banger! Gritty, like this visual. Hope you like “Anchovies.” Eff that, you are LOVING the LP if you are a Hip-Hop head. As for the bug-looking, fishy, salty pizza topping… well, some like it, some don’t.

The new album “Anchovies.” from Detroit’s Apollo Brown and Fresno’s Planet Asia isn’t for everybody. It’s lo-fi, nasty, and minimalist to the extreme. But for some, it’s absolutely perfect. Stripped down to accentuate Asia’s bars, Apollo Brown lays a gorgeous backdrop for gutter tales.
