Oj Da Juiceman, who was once set to be Brick Squad‘s major star along side Gucci(pre-Waka), looks to recapture some of that momentum he had in 09/10 with his upcoming mixtape, Cook Muzik 2. “I Sell” is solid track but the circus organs of Zaytoven seem like a bygone era in southern rap production with people favoring a much darker and more electronic sound these days. So why post this record? Cause this is PTP and the record features Gunplay. “The Human LA Riot” gets his 2 Chainz “Turn Up” flow on, stretching out the last word in the first bar of every four bars, again showing he’s one of the more versatile artists in the rap sporting contest.

Tree digs deep in the sound banks for this additional bonus cut off the re-release of Sunday School. Tympanic drums, flamenco guitars, and the Lex Luger start-up sound are all thrown in the mix in this challenging yet enjoyable track. Patience required but well worth it.
Big Hater released another new track from his upcoming project Fire & Smoke on Kiss FM. Unlike the first cut, he’s not sending for specific emcees on the scene, H is more on his paranoia shit on this one. For the fans that have followed dude on his various radio set appearances, you might recognize a few lines. Bloodline!
Our dudes at Keep On Repeat recently dropped their first compilation which features unreleased material by various notable lo-fi specialists such as Friendzone, Western Tink, Beautiful Lou, Deniro Farrar, Ryan Hemsworth, Nem270, Zachg, Black Noi$e, Sea Things, and more. Plenty of cloudy instrumentalism plus strong joints by Western Tink and Deniro Farrar…and a bugged out Chief Keef cover.
Sorry to KOR, this has been in the inbox for a minute now…just playing a little more catch up today.
Yung Yadi is a female MC hailing from South Texas. Syrup, smoke, Screw worship, and other trill points of view delivered in a fashion much less “girl next door” than most of these other young ladies popping up trying to sell a similar idea of their everyday existence.
To be completely honest, what really popped out at me (i.e. the thing that made me actually start listening to it), as this landed in my inbox without much info other than the front & back covers and an apt description of “South Texas’s very own,” were the multiple features by Squadda B and the other homie Chris Gr3en (who also supplies the finest beats on this, by far). Honestly, with a little polish (especially in production), I can see Yadi poppin’ in no time.
Juicy J rhyming over a SpaceGhostPurrp production? Is this the irony you were looking for? Or is the Lord of Southern darkness just doing more of this “moving ahead” and “staying relevant with the new generation” stuff for which he’s been celebrated so much, especially recently. Either way, this murky shit is THE shit…and with a video that enhances the drug rush of the music. Off that extended Blue Dream & Lean.
Zachg and Squadda B are infamous for being high on life…tinctures, transparent L’s, and all other things in the category of “loud.” This shit is definitely a “roll up” affair. Dope contrast between Zach’s happy-hippie rap life to Squadda’s semi-depressed hustler steez.

Willie The Kid said “ummmm…” and poof (!)…he was teleported into a world of deep-shaded, velvet robes, marble counters, and menage a trois. He then said “ummm” again, and poof (!! …again), he was in the same apartment, filled with his preferred type of female companionship, bottles of that “top shelf,” and a few of his people…plus a DJ. Was it a rent party? Where was Al B. Sure? Was this Al B. Sure’s rent party? Was he borrowing Al B. Sure’s velvet robe? What is going on in Grand Rapids, Michigan?!
