Cousin Stizz just hit us with a stunning new video for his single “500 Horses” off his sophomore tape Monda. Join him and his crew in riding through the streets of Boston as they hit the cemetery to pour up for the dead homies, narrowly avoid getting arrested at the park, mob out in a parking lot, and put down a pound of the ganja amongst other things. Talk about putting your city on the map.

Another track from Gambino’s upcoming album, Awaken, My Love!, has just surfaced. “Red Bone” is absolutely dripping with soul and has an upbeat funkiness that commands listeners to tap right a long with the beat. Gambino opts to use a seldom heard falsetto, crooning throughout the track. Awaken, My Love! will be here December 2nd. For now, enjoy “Red Bone.”

Must Listen: Trapo’s debut album ‘Shade Tree’ is here

trapo2

Trapo, a rapper from Wisconsin, made some waves this past year with the release of a mini EP titled SHE and his debut mixtape Black Beverly Hills. Since the successful release of those projects he’s been all over blogs like The Fader and Pigeons and Planes. Today we finally get the debut effort from the rapper who’s drawn comparisons to Chicago’s Mick Jenkins and despite his young age has a knack for telling stories that seem much older than himself. Give his album a listen below and enjoy.

Also, some merch from the album is available here on his website.

Léks Rivers’ latest song sounds like a war cry, check out “No Rest For The Wicked”

leks rivers

Léks Rivers has been one of my favorite underground artists since the release of “Cherry” two years ago. The slow, mature single gave listeners an intimate look into the world of a blossoming young singer. Fast forward to the end of 2016 and Rivers is still leaving a lasting impression through his music. His latest effort, “No Rest For The Wicked” plays out like a war cry and finds Rivers experimenting with a different, more aggressive and urgent delivery (similar to his last single “You’re my X & Here’s Y”) with the same end result. This new direction is incredibly exciting to watch and hopefully there’s a full length project coming from Rivers sooner rather than later. Until then, enjoy “No Rest For The Wicked” and check out “Cherry” below it.
