RUN THE JEWELS – YANKEE AND THE BRAVE

In this time of self-quarantine, people are finding ways to stay busy and entertain. The dynamic duo of El P and Killer Mike took to Instagram Live recently to ease the pain of being stuck at home by playing a song from the upcoming Run The Jewels 4 album. Unfortunately, it wouldn’t play clearly so the duo decided to drop the official audio for “Yankee and the Brave” for your listening pleasure. Enjoy.

THUNDERCAT FEAT. TY DOLLA $IGN & LIL B – FAIR CHANCE

Paying homage to the late Mac Miller, Thundercat reflects on the loss of his friend alongside Ty Dolla $ign and Lil B.

“When he passed it shook the ground for the artist community,” Thundercat said. “Ty’s a strong dude and when he heard the song he knew exactly what it should be. I was there when he recorded it. We talked about what it was, and he did what he felt was right to it, and I love what he did.”

JAY ELECTRONICA FEAT. JAY-Z – FLUX CAPACITOR

It only took a decade for us to get a Jay Electronica album. But A Written Testimony is finally here with eight of the ten songs on the album featuring Jay-Z. At a total combined age of 93, the duo proves that age is nothing but a number as they deliver quality bars over banging production. One of the standouts is “Flux Capacitor” as Jay-Z addresses his relationship with the NFL and Jay Electronica just goes ape.

KXNG CROOKED – SAN DIEGO 2010

Between his extensive sitdown with Eminem and blessing Royce on his new album on “Tricked,” we tend to forget that KXNG Crooked still has music of his own to release. He’ll be dropping The Sixteen Chapel EP soon and releases “San Diego 2010” for a taste of what’s to come.

ROYCE 5’9″ FEAT. KXNG CROOKED – TRICKED

Royce 5’9″ put the industry on notice (again) with the immediate frontrunner for hip hop album of the year with The Allegory. You’d be an irresponsible fan if you consciously decided not to listen to this stellar piece of work. But in the event that life got in the way, check out Nickel’s collab with KXNG Crooked on “Tricked” where the former Slaughterhouse members go in about how much foolery goes on in the world today.
