Ski Beatz – “Ground Wire” (Video)

What in the anime is this??! Well, for one, shiz iz CRAY! But so is the crazy beat the video accompanies. Haaa! But hey, it’s from Ski Beatz. Respek on his name (a quick trip back through the archives on here will teach you why).

His 10-track project, “Switched On Bap,” is out now.

André 3000 – “Look Ma No Hands”

André Tré Stacks on bass clarinet with James Blake playing the piano. Vibe music. But still different than other Dré you’ve heard. Still keeping us listening and interested.

Dropped this extended play track on Mother’s Day, too, along with that “Me & My” song.

Info56 – “Southwest” feat. DJ Dez (Video)

Know how you have come across something nearing perfection? Answer: You struggle to find that one thing to nitpick, then you pick the hell out of it until it bleeds like an old dry scab!

This Info56 x DJ Dez collabo is the perfect case in point. Instrumental excellence, pepper perfectly with a precise amount of scratch-tastic dopeness… and all I can think about was the chef at the beginning doing up the bacon ‘n eggs… “SON! Do NOT dig your FINGER off in my egg yolk, SON. I’m VERY serious about my breakfast (not that serious for real, but still, haha)!”

(But the music, off the “Southwest” LP, is VERY dope.)

Black Milk – “Fever” (Album Stream)

C’mon son! It’s only right that if we come across the FREE full album stream we hook it up and put it up here… esp. if we have been hipping and linking you to it all along… AND it’s a dope artist like Black Milk. We got the “Fever” and now, you do!

Acclaimed Detroit-born producer/rapper Black Milk announces FEVER, a politically-charged collection of genre-bending Hip-Hop, releasing via Mass Appeal Records on 2/23. The album features vocals from Dwele, Aaron “Ab” Abernathy, Sudie and contributions from all-star musicians Chris “Daddy” Dave, Daru Jones, Malik Hunter, Ian Fink and Sasha Kashperko.

Black Milk – “True Lies”

Let’s slide one more in before Black Milk drops that heater “Fever” on us to bring the Spring. “True Lies” goes IN with the groove. You can chill, but the beat-and-chant track won’t let you get ‘comfortable’ over there. Ha!

But enjoy it though.

Tall Black Guy – “A Franklin Black Excursion” (EP)

Always interesting to see where producers ‘go’ when they let their minds wander. Rhythm Roulette would not have done this justice. Didn’t really even know it was going down like this ’til TBG hit us in the inbox with a note that the cooking was done and the plate was served. Truly an “Excursion”… Go on the trip with him.

Koji The Bandit – “Never Enough” (Instrumental Album)

Not our normal musical fare, but this artist’s story though…

I never want to be so focused on an artist’s work that I ignore their worth as a fellow human being. Looks like in this write-up, that this bunch of banging beats was borne of a life journey that involved pain. I appreciate that: It is the burden of many artists (some we lost as a result). I also hope things looked up or will soon…

One night, I was sitting in my car, completely hopeless about life. Smoking a Black & Mild, in April, my life in limbo. I had no idea what I was going to do, and I was losing confidence in what I can do musically. I was about to give up. It seemed like anything I tried to do to get myself in a better situation, whether a potential job, music opportunity, etc., it was #neverenough. Fast forward to now, after doing a mentorship with Don Cannon and collaborating with him for my first major placement with Lil Durk, I’m honestly still not certain where this will take me…I pray that God will show me a way out of uncertainty with my life with this instrumental project. This is a tale of happiness, sadness, love, life, and glory. I present to you, “Never Enough.” #robothouse.

The Alchemist – “French Blends” (Pt​.​ 2) [Album]

Damn. A-L-C plays NO games when it comes to the dopest beats and blends, does he? That question is rhetorical. He absolutely does NOT play. You will hear that as soon as you press play. FREE streaming of the steaming hot “French Blends” (Pt​.​ 2) served below!

15 Minute Hip-Hop Instrumental Medley By An Ochestra (Video)

Remember a good while back when we posted on Sir Mix-A-Lot performing with the symphony orchestra backing him (here)? Not quite like that but it sort of is… for me. Music I love done by folks who love a different kind of music. Dopeness, with crossover appeal! Check this out.
