G Perico, Jay Worthy & Cardo – “G-Worthy” [EP]

LA’s newest wrecking crew, G-Worthy (comprised of G Perico, Jay Worthy of LNDN DRGS, and super producer Cardo) has released their self-titled debut project on Fool’s Gold.

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:

Salva – “Clips” [Instrumental Album]

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.

Lunice – “Tha Doorz” [Video] / “CCCLX” [Album]

Montreal’s super-producer Lunice finally delivers his debut album named “CCCLX” (360)!

After forming the group TNGHT with Hudson Mohawke and redefining a genre (trap) as a whole in 2012, unlike his partner HudMo, Lunice took some time off to focus on his first full-length solo album.

The whole vibe of the project is dark and minimal, almost industrial, with features coming from CJ Flemings, Le1f, Aftermath‘s King Mez, Denzel Curry, and Mike Dean, among others.

Watch the visual for the latest single, “Tha Doorz”, and stream the entire album below:

TroyBoi – “Left Is Right” [Album]

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.”
