Now this is the perfect soundtrack for your summer!
Germany’s super-producer Shuko (who’s worked with artists like Rakim, Talib Kweli, Tyga and T-Pain, just to name a few) has joined forces with fellow producer The Breed to bring you “Dippin'”, a homage to the 90’s West Coast sound.
10 instrumental bangers + the first single featuring Gangsta Rap legends King Tee and MC Eiht.
Without a doubt, Curren$y is one of the hardest working artists in hip-hop, once again dropping quality projects back to back.
After teaming up with Freddie Gibbs & the Alchemist for the end of last year’s “Fetti”and his potna in (c)rhyme Wiz Khalifa for “2009” earlier this year, Spitta reconnects with fellow workaholics LNDN DRGS (Jay Worthy & Sean House) for the laid back “Umbrella Symphony” EP.
And as if that wasn’t enough, he drops another fire collabo project for the East Coast heads with yet another hard working craftsman by the name of DJ Statik Selektah (who also just recently released a phenomenal LP with Bun B called “TrillStatik”). The 10-track album features Jadakiss, YBN Cordae, Jim Jones, and Termanology.

The rapper turned podcaster (check out N.O.R.E‘s “Drink Champs” show on YouTube!) is returning to his roots with his latest effort and pays homage to his humble beginnings in the apartment complex of Lefrak City, Queens where he was born and raised.
BattleCat protege Amplified has (quietly) released his beautiful debut album, “Authenticity”. It’s essentially G-Funk music par excellence. Real music. 13 mostly instrumental songs. Fine-tuned and sprinkled with a couple of West Coast big dogs on a hook or a verse: Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, Kokane, Butch Cassidy, Mykestro, Focus…, Mr. Porter. So go ahead and stream this amazing body of work below. To top it all off, you can listen to and/or download the “leftover” EP, “Almost Authenticity”, (for free) as well:
Meet Compton native Saint Malo.
The west coast rapper/songwriter/producer and label CEO launched his L.A. based indie label, The Music Life, back in 2012 with flagship artist (younger brother and Kendrick Lamar homie) Hitta J3.
Saint Malo‘s 10-track debut album, “Wild Wild West”, is executively produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Street Symphony, whose credits include 2 Chainz, Nipsey Hussle, Yo Gotti and Dave East.
