Here’s a peek at our office playlist!
The Last Poets released a much needed album, Transcending Toxic Times. With all that is going on in the world there is always a duality in the lives of Pan Africans across the globe and we should be thankful that these emcees are still here to give us some food for thought.
The Wu Tang Clan has their new docuseries on Showtime titled “Wu-Tang: Of Mics and Men” and of course they released a project to accompany the series. The music is included in the series but, not everyone has Showtime so at least they can get the music.
Statik Selektah is one of the hardest working producers out there. Working with all of your favorites emcees Curren$y was next on the line up. The DJ/MC pair released Gran Turismo and it is a great project to ride out to this summer.
We usually don’t list projects that already has amazing promotion and marketing but DJ Khaled has a song on his project titled, Higher featuring Nipsey Hussle and John Legend where Nipsey seems to be speaking to us from the other side.
DJ Premiere dropped Headlines featuring Westside Gunn, Conway, and Benny. Preemo doesn’t get anybody but emcees on his instrumentals so take this joint serious!!
As one of the greatest producers of all time Pete Rock has released his fourth instrumental album titled, The Return of the SP1200. If you don’t know what the SP1200 is listen to any Rap song released during the Golden Era and you’ll hear the popular drum machine on every track.
Schoolboy Q dropped his fifth studio album titled, Crash Talk. There’s no question that there are bars all over this project.
Bun B and Statik Selektah teamed up for a collaborative project titled, Trillstatik. With Statik’s ear for the south and Bun B’s Texas drawl it was an easy collab.
CZARFACE released, A Double Dose of Danger, t in their series with a comic book! That was a no-brainer given the artwork associated with the music.
Erick Sermon released his project, Vernia. E is preparing to take over in the streaming space and reminding us that he’s still got the talent for production.
Lizzo released her album Cuz I Love You. As a low-key talented up and coming emcee, this young lady has the bars.
Styles P released hislatest album, S. P. The Goat. Ghost stillrhymes like Holiday Styles but now he’s a plant-based version.
Domo Wilson is on the rise and her new track Feelings gives us that authentic voice from a woman but, instead of singing we’re getting bars!
Melli dropped her first album, Phases and is making a little noise. The latest single off the project, HML, features A Boogie and it is refreshing to hear a new voice with a new point of view.
