New Music: ASAP Ferg – “Hood Pope”

31 Jul


A$AP MOB member, ASAP Ferg has definitely been working towards making a name for himself. ASAP Ferg has been putting in work (pun intended) all summer: from dropping the remix to his trap anthem “Work”, to recently releasing “Shabba”, and now his most recent release “Hood Pope”–a bonus song on Itunes. In the song I detect Bone Thugs N Harmony’s soulful influence(who also happen to be featured on Trap Lord); the song also has Ferg singing the chorus. With consistency like this anticipation is continuously building for his upcoming Trap Lord album, due August 20th.

New Music Video: Big K.R.I.T. – “Multi Til The Sun Die”

24 Jul

Mississippi’s finest, Big KRIT recently dropped a new music video for his track “Multi Til The Sun Die” off of his most recent mixtape, King Remembered In Time. The video is directed by Steve-Ography and captures various moments in KRIT’s life such as him: travelling, celebrating, touring, and making music. It comes off as extremely genuine and in that way–reflects the authenticity of KRIT’s music.

After somewhat of a break, funny man Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino returns with his new song “Centipede”. The song features Gambino’s combination of rapping and singing and also interestingly samples Behind The Lava Lamp (a documentary about rapper Charles Hamilton). Check it out below:

New Music: Stalley – “Raise Your Weapons”

MMG’s Stalley recently released a “new” song called “Raise Your Weapons”produced by Block Beataz; an introspective call to arms, that rings eerily true in light of recent incidents. Stalley describes the song as:

“…We recorded the song a year ago,” says Stalley. “We had a conversation about what’s going on in our lives and the lack of substance and activism in our community.”

“The lyrics are a call to arms. A catalyst for turning complaints into a charge for what’s right. ‘They say I’m the last of a dying breed,’ notes the rapper. ‘Someone who embodies the glories of success, but also embraces the failings of my path. This song is inspired by my own personal push forward, how it now parallels with larger societal trends, and a desire to want more for the people of this country.'”

Stalley is also set to drop a new mixtape next month on August 8th.
