Chicago rapper/producer Martin $ky has released a new instrumental EP.
Stream the minimalistic beat tape here:
Recorded in the city of angels, the EP itself is authentic gangsta rap from the westside: South Central’s G Perico and the Bompton-based Jay Worthy, mixed together with Cardo‘s distinct, smoothed-out melodic production, makes for one of the best west coast connections in years.

Back from an unintentional hiatus… Life’s a bi**h sometimes, but I still love her. Anyway, I digress…
Sidney’s MXXWLL has dropped what I believe is to be one of my favorite albums this year!
Warm, funky vibes all over these 21 amazing beats.
I could go on and on about this album and how it could be the unofficial soundtrack to this blog, but rather let you listen and judge for yourself instead:
The original hip-hop hipsters return!
Chuck Inglish and Mikey Rocks aka The Cool Kids have dropped their first album in 6 years.
Yeah, I know, I probably lost you at “hipsters”, but these guys right here are different. Their unique way of combining old-school hip-hop with modern elements is second to none.
So do yourself a favor and stream the album below:
Better known for his electronica bangers, L.A. producer Salva has switched gears and released a straight instrumental hip-hop album called “Clips”.
The album is inspired musically from audio and movie clips, which you can hear in the 40-some minutes of various stylings like UK Grime, trap, and bits of Cali, New York, Miami and Chicago all with an underlying 808 backbone.

Beat music for the heads!
London-bred producer TroyBoi has released his debut album called “Left Is Right”.
The 20-track strong album is all about moods; elements of dubstep, hip-hop, trap, R&B and house can be found all over the record. It’s a lot of TroyBoi’s best work and some of his personal new favorites put together to an amazing body of work. Only 4 vocal guest appearances from Healthy Chill, Nefera, Y.A.S., and rap icon Ice Cube!
Troy about how the title and concept for the album came into being:
“For the title, Left Is Right, a lot of people try to sort of place my music, they consider it ‘left of center’. So I kind of go against that, like, ‘Well, it’s right in my head’. Therefore, ‘left is right’… Doing it like a play on words. It also just represents carving out your own lane and not worrying what other people think. A lot of people will tell you that you can’t, but you can.”
