Plata A Plomo is pushed back to February 24th. Today we get a Dancehall-infused single.
On The Way is part of Damien Ritter’s #StillMovinMondays series, in which a new track will be available every Monday.
Vado has pretty much been replaced by Dave East. He’s looking to make his mark again, but Same Gang doesn’t do it for me. His SiNAtRA 2 tape should be coming soon.
TDE’s latest/mystery signee SiR released the Her Too project. Here’s one of my favorite cuts off the EP. King Mez never had a bad verse.
A low quality version leaked leading up to Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight release. It wasn’t on the album, but now we get the CDQ.
I’m not a fan of Tony’s rapping, but this Jimmy Dukes produced cut goes. It dropped in January, but here’s a better quality version.
Jidenna is one of the more interesting artists out, but thus far his persona and his content didn’t seem to match. Bambi is the type of record I’ve been expecting Jidenna to make for a while now.
You can’t deny Russ’ work ethic. Take It All In is the latest in a long row of bangers and it happens to be one of my favorites.
B.o.B shows why his team is called No Genre. Fake Friends is an interesting blend of styles, with a hook by WurlD.
Maino released his Ghetto God mixtape this week. Here’s one of the better cuts. Live Forever features one of the best upcoming emcees.
Chance won the Grammy over Khaled, but he’s already moving on to bigger things. Here’s the first single off his Grateful album.
One of the most underrated rappers announced that his debut album will finally drop on G.O.O.D. music this year. I hope we also get his Father Stretch My Hands verse in CDQ soon.
I don’t care at all for this beef, but this is one of Waka’s better songs. The Truth is my favorite Gucci song, so hopefully hi reaction matches that.
Rick Ross vows to get everyone in his team rich by the Summer of 2017. The song is produced by Beat Billionaire. It follows the basic ingredients for a Ross song and fails to amaze me.
Dave East & Profit link up for a gritty record. Ain’t Rich Yet is produced by Cardiak & Cu Beatz. This is solid, but his Push It remix is in steady rotation.
Lupe Fiasco keeps his word and released his DROGAS Light album. Ty Dolla Sign, Rick Ross, Big K.R.I.T. and others are featured on the 14-track project. This is nice, but I’m waiting on DROGAS.
One of my favorite ‘newcomers’ in hiphop is Smino, who was featured on our For The Future 2016 mixtape. His latest single Anita is produced by frequent collaborator Monte Booker.
Yelawolf & Rittz have been talking about an album. It may or may not happen, but while we wait, lets revisit their past collaborations.
Sickick is possibly the most talented artist in the game right now. Here’s his latest catchy creation, including a must-watch video.
Bones is gearing up to release his Unrendered album. WhatAShame is the latest single, produced by Vegard Veslelia. The song progresses nicely, but could’ve been longer.
The $UICIDEBOY$ duo is on the come up and release another banger. King Cobra features a verse from Germ as well.
OVO Sound Radio ep. 37 just premiered two Baka tracks. You can check out the first one here and grab the better one below. I’m not sure about the titles yet, but will update the post with more info.
KRS-One, Freddie Gibbs, Shad, Swollen Members, The Doppelgangaz, King Geedorah, Jedi Mind Tricks & more appear on vol. 12.
