Enlighten me... hip me to some new hip hop that dropped this Summer.
Rap records? Alright. Run The Jewels
is a fantastic record. El & Mike bro it up EPMD style with guests like Prince Paul & Big Boi. And it's free.
Billy Woods' Dour Candy
is also pretty fantastic, produced entirely by Blockhead. Billy Woods' rhyme scheme is a bit to get used to at first but his music is definitely something to check out at least once. You can't be mad at RoboCop references.
Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire also dropped Kismet
not too long ago, and while this tape may be a bit inconsistent at some points, the tape features some great moments from eXquire. It also features some great production from Constrobuz, who may or may not post here anymore. He probably got tired of us.
Open Mike Eagle's Sir Rockabye EP
may not be his best work, but its still a fun record. Mike goes #RealHipHop on "Clean It Up" but the most entertaining moment for me was "Password":
"I GOT THE PASSWORD TO YOUR NETFLIX
I'M WATCHING EVERY NARUTO"
I'm actually a big fan of Mike, make sure to check out his other releases.
On the more experimental side of the hip-hops is TAPE TWO
by some scottish dudes called Young Fathers. Some creative stuff on this record. If you like this one, make sure to cop TAPE ONE as well.
Finally, mndsgn's instrumental tape breatharian
is not to be slept on. mndsgn is one of the only cats in the beat scene that doesn't bore me to death/overwhelm me with pretention, so new releases from the dude are always welcome. Perfect summer vibes.
