Your Old Droog cuts loose this track that didn’t make his self-titled LP. Produced by DJ Skizz, it’s definitely of that buttery smooth variety.

Joey Bada$$ unleashes some new music off of his upcoming LP B4.DA.$$ with some assistance behind the boards from Statik Selektah.
Crooked I spews social consciousness in the face of adversity over the instrumental to Tupac’s “Pain” off of the Above The Rim soundtrack.
We all know Rapsody can rap her face off, but she can also deliver a strong message in her music with her Eric G produced ode to men growing up without fathers titled “The Man.”
I wrote this song as a dedication to all the boys growing up without fathers who now have to try and fill those big shoes. I wanted to tell the story of how they have to grow up fast, lose their innocence so young, and the damage it does (no matter your race). The interlude that follows deals with racism, and how people of color have to have these tough conversations with their children that others parents don’t. It’s hard to explain to a five year old that because of the color of their skin, they will be treated differently. But, that’s a reality for us.
Inspired by Tyler, The Creator’s criticism of the ShadyXV album being “ass,” Crooked I drops this freestyle in response.
Homeboy Sandman is joined by J-Live and Kurious for this video off of his recently released album Hallways.
