What’s poppin’ Soundcloud? Part 2

images
Keeping up with new music is hard. Especially when you’re old and kinda over everything. I don’t listen to the radio. I don’t use spotify. I don’t have people around who are up on shit to tell me about it. So, i generally find new music online via social media, social networks and….Soundcloud. It’s kinda my favorite cause it’s all stuff that typically isn’t out anywhere else. Suck on that, spotify!
So, every now and then, I like to go through my feed and share what I’ve been listening to with you guys. This is that.
Oh, one thing, before I post the music. If you read this blog , you know that Sparkmaster Tape is my shit. His two mixtapes are some of my favorite music made in the last 10 years. Well, he’s been M.I.A for over a year now. His twitter was silent until yesterday…

I’m assuming this means he’s back…and I’m fucking hyped. No new music…yet. But this gotta be a good sign.
Okay…now on to the music

Earl Sweatshirt

Earl posted three new songs. 2 are instrumental and this one has vocals. It’s dope. Definitely ready to hear some new Earl after this…

Asaad
This Philly Mc stays busy. I always find him engaging but, sometimes , his beat selection isn’t really up my alley. However, he has been dropping crazy joints on soundcloud lately and I’ve been liking what I’ve been hearing. These are just a taste. If you like what you hear, I suggest you did deeper cause he’s literally been putting up a song a day for a few weeks.



Fresh Daily
One of the more underrated underground heads out there. He’s been doing it for a while and continues to put out quality shit.

Your Old Droog
The Nu Shooz sample is very ill. It seems like Droog been enjoying rapping over some 80’s sounding tracks and , I can’t front, it’s been working out nicely for him.

Izzle mane feat. DP
I don’t know much about this one but it popped up in my feed and I like it. DP is dope.

Mick Jenkins
This is a smooth track. Jenkin’s continues to grow as an artist.

Little Shalimar- The rubble kings soundtrack
My Buddy Little Shalimar did a bang up job making the music for the Rubble Kings documentary.
The original score is crazy and this “music inspired by the movie” album is also awesome. I only posted a few tracks but check out the whole thing. New music from KA and Killer Mike. The album for even more on it.

Have an opinion! Pick your favorite.

Every now and then, there are periods of time when a ton of good music seems to pop out of nowhere. Months can go by, with me listening to the same shit I had been forever then, all of sudden, a whole new crop of songs and albums for me to dig my teeth into appear. Not gonna front, soundcloud has really upped the ante on this cause it seems like artists I check for release a new song for the hell of it every month or so.
Anyway, I often like to take the temperature of what you guys are fucking with. So here are 7 songs I’ve been fucking with (many of the artists are favorites of mine you should be very familiar with if you follow this blog), in both video and soundcloud form. I’m curious what you like the most. There’s a poll after the songs and I know how much people like voicing their opinions online. Well, now is you chance. Peep them and lemme know.
