New Music | Scotty ATL feat. BJ the Chicago Kid ‘Clockin’ In’

On the heels of his joint project Live & Direct with B.o.B., Scotty is already prepping for  what’s up next — including his go at the 10th spot over at XXL. Crazy.

New Music | Meek Mill ‘Energy’

‘Got some enemies/Got a lotta enemies/I was just cool with ’em/Hatin’, call ’em ‘frenemies’…’ — Meek

Fresh Music | DJ Burn One & The Five Points Bakery ‘Canapé’ EP

Canapé (noun)

A small, prepared and usually decorative food, held in the fingers and often eaten in one bite.

Understand this — nothing DJ Burn One does behind the boards is small, though it is easy to digest. On Canapé, the Atlanta native has some help from The Five Points Bakery (Walt Live, Go! Ricky Go!, Pi’erre Bourne & Monochrome Sweatsuit). Burn’s latest offering has the feel of trunks rattling in outer space. Like, Burn is known for having that thump always, but the use of synths is super airy and ethereal here. All live instrumentation. No samples here. Pretty dope. And with seven tracks, I’d say it could be consumed in one bite. Press ‘play.’

New Music | Fabolous Friday Night Freestyle ‘Do It Again’

“How the f— you gon’ talk about emcees on my heels?/ And all I see is Tim trees on my heels…” (c) Sport

New Music | Fabolous Friday Night Freestyles [to Date]

Listen. You could never ever, in a million years, think that I forgot about my city. My hometown. When Fab started dropped these joints, me and my whole lifelong crew were listening.

The Brooklyn MC is back on his grizzy like it’s nuffin’. Back to that Fabolous Sport flavor like it’s ’99 all over again. Like the Desert Storm street team is outchea pounding the pavement. Even Clue got on his retro ish, with the echoing drops on these new freestyles to classic joints. Yes. We’re here for all of it. I love my city and the people who make me proud to say ‘I was born at Brookdale and raised in The East.’ Salute.

Press ‘play’ on every last one of these.  Continue reading

New Music | Curren$y ‘Pilot Talk III’ [Album Stream]


Curren$y is that guy. Even you don’t get as high as he does on a daily, you get it. Something about that stream-of-consciousness flow coupled with the N.O. lilt and his chemistry with producers like Ski Beatz and the like — but mainly, Ski Beatz, Spitta is a gem out here. And now, with the release of Pilot Talk III, we can indulge in the fly talk he loves to run off.

For $100 (-plus) you can cop the pack though. The MC announced via Twitter on Monday (April 6):

is a free album…. The shirt, book, and drive loaded with unseen vids and such is what ur buying when u cop the pack from us.”

New Music | Rich Homie Quan ‘Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh)’

Word on the street is that Rich Homie Quan is finally prepping to drop his debut LP this spring. Last week, the lyric video dropped for his lead single ‘Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh)’ and we’ve gotta say, this here gives a cool lil’ vibe, sort of like ‘Type of Way’ years ago but a little more polished.

New Music | Kendrick Lamar ‘Blacker the Berry’

Listen. I’m here for y’all. If you missed out on Kendrick’s ‘Blacker the Berry’ when it caused the commotion online Monday afternoon (February 9), here it is. Produced by Boi-1da with a little extra from Terrance Martin — listen closely and hit the ‘replay’ button. I swear, this young man has been here before. BTW, he’s always been like this. The first time I spoke with him back in 2011 for DX, it stretched to a two hour conversation. His buzz had begun to build insanely and he was tryna get his ma to move out of Compton. Happy Black History Month.

New Music | Young Dolph feat. Shy Glizzy ‘Make the World Go Around’

I’m a late Dolph fan. I’ll admit it. But the Street Execs team is hardworking and in 2014 they forced us all to take a second or third look at the Memphis native. Here, he and DMV representative Shy Glizzy go back and forth — over Drumma Boy’s production — explaining exactly what happens to the Earth on its axis when somebody ‘real’ is present. See how I did that? Press play.
