New Kid Cudi is a beautiful thing. Previously unreleased Kid Cudi, featuring Chip Tha Ripper, from 2010 is an even more beautiful thing. This surfaced the other day via Blended Babies and Chuck Inglish. Originally it was supposed to be on Cudi and Chip’s collaborative album. However, the album plans got scrapped only a few songs in. Hopefully more from the album that never was surfaces in the future. Enjoy.
This joint by Rich Homie Quan just leaked earlier today. With a feature from Drizzy Drake and a nice verse from Rich Homie this track is only 2 minutes and 20 seconds long. Because it’s a leak we’re wondering if this isn’t the final version. Either way, we’ll take a verse from Drake any day. Check it out below.
The second episode of G-Eazy’s tour video is here. Check out a recap of his shows in Albuquerque, Houston, Chicago, Tampa Bay, Ft. Lauderdale, and Atlanta. Shot by Ben Wolin and Goodboyshady, this is definitely worth a watch. Check it out below.
Park Street Saloon was the place to be last night if you were in Columbus. Ab-Soul and a number of other performers put on a very dope show. Check out some photos of the performance below.
Dreamer, who was featured on XXL’s The Break earlier this year, started the night off on a high note with his set.
The next performer was Hashu. The 16 year old Columbus native performed quite a few songs, including “What I Do.” Which he dropped two days ago and you can stream below.
Atlanta’s EarthGang took the stage after Hashu and played a wild set. Their sound is new to us here at Smooth Waves but you can bet that you’ll be seeing and hearing more from them in the future. Everything about the duo, from their outfits to their lyrics, was very dope.
Next up was Bas. Bas is part of J. Cole’s Dreamville Record label. The NY native not only had a killer set but also had a section of the crowd that looked as though they had come out just for him.
Once Bas left the stage it all Ab-Soul for the remainder of the night. His performance was something else. For over an hour he performed songs from all over his resumé. Many of the songs were from These Days… of course, but, he also performed songs from Control System and other projects.
