Nothing is stoping Trinidad Jame$ lately, not even a label. Today, James releases his highly anticipated free album/mixtape NoOne Is Safe. The project features ten tracks with features from iLoveMakonnen, OG Maco, Problem, Lil’ Debbie, Peewee Longway and Offset. Be sure to check out the entire project either on his own site (http://tjamesworld.com) or on Datpiff right here. Check out the track listing below and let us know what you think in the comments.
Two weeks ago, Travi$ Scott released a free mixtape/album titled Days Before Rodeo. It was unexpected, and surprising, and not just because it really came out of nowhere.
Not many rappers release a project of this magnitude before the release of their debut album. Days Before Rodeo contains 12 tracks with features from some pretty big names. On the tape you can hear Big Sean, The 1975, Migos, Peewee Longway, Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan and a secret feature by T.I. on “Quintana Pt. 2.” All in all, this project is one of the best of the year and may be some of the best work we’ve heard from Travi$ so far.
First off, this plays like an album. It’s also one of those rare projects that you can play from start to finish and visa versa, or put it on shuffle and still somehow maintain a coherent sound/story that isn’t jumbled at all. The flow from song to song is some of the best we’ve seen in awhile. Travi$ somehow pulls this off despite having a wide array of features from artists with very distinct sounds, which could easily have thrown off the work as a whole.
Rodeo better be damn good, because it’s going to be hard to top this, especially in the same year. Travi$ definitely won over some new fans with this one. And he did it in a way where he didn’t step too far outside of the box by trying to tailor his sound to a new audience in an inorganic way, like many artists attempt to do. He’s been perfecting his sound and style for awhile and Days Before Rodeo showed that, now Rodeo needs to reinforce it.
Check out a few of our favorite tracks below and stay tuned for more from Travi$ in the future. Also, feel free to let us know what you thought of Days Before Rodeo.
Standout tracks: Travi$ Scott Ft. Young Thug- “Skyfall.” Wow, from a production standpoint this song is beautiful and somehow Young Thug is incredibly tolerable throughout the whole song.
Another dope track is “Quintana Pt. 2” which is just Travi$ and will have you saying “I’m finessing” all day long in your head.
Also, Travi$ accompanied the project with an interesting video for the track “Don’t Play” Ft. Big Sean & The 1975. Watch it below.
Travi$ Scott just dropped off Days Before Rodeo, a free album which you can find him on both sides of, both producing and rapping. Travi$ has been improving steadily for the past year and Days Before Rodeo is the culmination of all of that work. The project is chocked full of solid features as well. With the likes of Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, Migos, Big Sean, Peewee Longway and the 1975. Check it out below.
