What we are listening to


bo2015I know this is twelve days late. Frankly, I don’t give a fuck. I got some new equipment and I finally put it to use. 2015 was probably one of the greatest years in Hip-hop history and there was a TON of music. So I put together over and hour an a half mix of what I thought was the best shit of last year. The year had it’s ups and downs and I’m completely ready to put 2015 in the past. With that said. I’m not providing a tracklist. Just hit play below. You won’t regret it. I used Serato DJ and my Numark NV for the mix and it is not perfect. Get ready for many more mixes in the coming days. Let me know what you think

[Playlist] 4CLR WK4 ft. albert gordon, Alina Baraz & Galimatias, Moxie Raia and more


Week 4 of the 4CLR series is super low-key. Filled with mellow beats and some singing here and there, courtesy of Moxie Raia and Alina Baraz (Ohio stand up). Albert Gordon of Brock Hampton gets things started off with his track “The Mourning” and the rest of the songs don’t differ much in speed or tone. Give this a listen while you’re studying this week or just hanging out alone.
