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.

Wiki-Livin’ with my moms

Shirt-Queens to Hollywood

Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire-Gold mouth piranha

Michael Christmas- Look up/save the day

Your old droog-Basketball and seinfeld

So, what’s your favorite of this batch? You can vote for more than one if you’re the indecisive type

What’s popping, Soundcloud?

As a musician on soundcloud, I often forget that it’s actually a source for good new music. Instead of looking at my stream, i just check in on my own comments , like and other pointless bullshit like that. Well, that’s my bad. selfish.
So, today, I wanted to the spotlight on some of the good stuff that’s been bubbling over there lately. You know, let you all hear the stuff that I’ve been listening to.

Gotta start it out with the #1 sports related song. Homeboy Sandman making all New Yorkers proud with this old school Mets Anthem

Then We got a ton of new Shirt joints. In case you don’t know, he’s been doing this thing where he makes songs with ANY producer who gives him $250 bucks. While this may seem like a cheap money scheme with a high probability for sucking it’s actually yielded some good results.


Here’s a now joint with Open Mike Eagle and Serengheti as the group Cavanaugh. Looks like Mike is making beats now too. sounds good, bro!

Your Old droog also stay busy. It feels like this dude drops a new song every week.

Philly rapper Asaad been making music for a while. He dropped a new 10 song album. Kinda mellow trappy stuff. I like some of it. Definitely good for the weed smoking set.

Then we got this new Michael Christmas song, which may be my favorite new thing I’ve heard in a while. The beat is hypnotic on some “93 til infinity” shit. Really excited for his new album.

Next up we got Prof. I’m actually late to the game on him but his shit is pretty awesome. He reminds me of older danny brown in a way. He did a joint with aesop on the beat recently that’s definitely pretty awesome.

And I’ll close this out with houston’s Sauce Walka, who made a fantastic Drake diss song a few weeks ago. Sauce is pretty crazy and , I’m guessing, not up the alley of most of the people who read this blog but I love him. If him and gunplay did an album together my life would be complete…

Look at all this new music that came out recently!

new shit ladies
It’s funny. About a week ago I was thinking “Man, I feel like there is not much to look forward to in rap in the near future”. Well, allow me to eat those words. In the past week 3 dope Ep’s by artists I like a lot have dropped. as well as a few other bits and pieces. So, as a good samaritan, I figured I’d just hip you to all of this, in case you haven’t been paying attention. These are all artists I’ve been championing on this site for a while now so it’s only right.

First up, Open Mike eagle dropped a new EP called “A special Episode of Ep”

Next up we got a new 11 song ep by Shirt (formally T-shirt). He’s not streaming the entire thing but here’s a first song off it:

Here’s a link to where you can get it (it’s $5 you cheap fucks): http://worksite.info/
As a little bonus here’s another track he did that isn’t on the ep:

Next we got a banging new EP By Your Old Droog. He just put some shit out so this came outta nowhere.

This is a one off by former Yay or nay subject Koreatown Oddity (and Ras G). Definitely feeling this one:

Lastly, we have an ep that came out a few weeks ago by Tree and Crack. Tree’s new album “Trap Genius” is apparently coming pretty soon but, until then, this should hold over he fans

Oh, and here’s a new song from Tree. I almost forgot:

Song of the day 4/9/14

Queens Cat By Shirt

I’ve been a big fan of Shirt since I first heard him a while back. His new album has been out for a minute but he released a weird video to one of my favorite songs from it so I figure, hey, what the fuck…let’s shine the light on him one more time. This is one of the few times you will ever see me support anything cat related. So that in itself is a pretty strong statement.

If you’d like to own this song, you can download his entire album for free here:
https://soundcloud.com/shirt/rap-album
It’s a banger and I highly recommend it. The song “Either you with me or with god” in particular has been my shit since it dropped so go download that shit. Why not? You hate free things? Don’t be silly.

Yay or Nay: Shirt.

t-shirt-rapper
Apparently this dudes been around for a little while but he’s new to me. To be honest I haven’t had much time to fully digest his music cause I literally heard him for the first time yesterday but my attention was grabbed. He’s a NYC rapper with a style that seems brutally honest. I’ve always been drawn to rappers who , even though they may be somewhat scum baggish, they’re seemingly speaking what they believe to be truths. As opposed to most rappers either just rapping to be rapping or blindly bragging about things well out of their grasp. Shirt (formerly known as T-shirt) has the “Tell it like it is” shit down. His new video has raised a lot of eyebrows both for the song and content of the video which is a little NSFW. Apparently it a mixture of pics he’s taken and found over the last 6 months of his life that are meant to show you what kinda shit he’s been on. Well, I like it…

Here’s a link to his bandcamp page where you can download an album from him for free:

So, what do you think of him?
