The interwebs are ablaze so early in the morning with Kendrick Lamar deciding to release the first single of his upcoming new album. Featuring a sample of the Isley Brothers’ “Who’s that lady”, the song is an uptempo feel good track that Kendrick enlightens us with. Using one of his various vocal tones, Kendrick is always finding new ways to push the boundary and keep us guessing. Keep clicking repeat because it’s only a matter of time before this song is everywhere.
P.S. it dropped two hours ago and already has 400,000 plays…

Manila Killa, 1/2 of the Hotel Garuda duo, decided to release his brand new mix for wavo.me today and it’s mighty fine. I enjoy the hour long mixes for when I study or have some down time, and this one fits the bill. I’m pretty sure he took every song I have liked on my Soundcloud and put them in a mix together, I’m very impressed. I have been really starting to jump onto this Hotel Garuda train and now with this mix, it only means more attention. Be sure to check out the mix and download it for free below, as well as another Manila Killa track that you guys will thoroughly enjoy.

Fresh off his release the other day, Smoko Ono decides to drop a very very nice remix to Vic Mensa’s Wimme Nah. A little more wavy than the OG, it bangs. I’m digging everything this guys putting out so definitely make sure to peep this as well as his other stuff. Enjoy.

I always am so interested to hear the beat whenever I see a new song with Chance on it. We’ve gone from “Back in this B***h” to “Everyday” now to this. I think this is Chance’s best release in a while and I think its the beat. I’ve been waiting for something playful and energetic, and with this it gives both the pretty nice vocals mixed with a upbeat verse. Everything about this song just works. Peep it below and definitely be sure to check out the Octave Minds guys with their album releasing September 15. Check out their other stuff on Soundcloud here, it’s quite fantastic.

Woah. Not expecting that. It has been a minute since Kendrick has graced our ears with new music, and today’s release is something a little different. Having FlyLo on the production is something I find very fitting for the two, who both have unique sounds that clearly work pretty well together on this track. I believe there is a new album in the works and set to be coming out pretty soon. Look for that and more releases to come and enjoy the track below.

I was quite surprised when I went on Soundcloud and saw this one at the top of my feed. I have been waiting for the full version of this song ever since Wave Racer’s Diplo & Friends mix and TYBG it’s here. This song is mind-blowing, stuck in your head for the next 3 weeks, listen to any time of the day good. Keep clicking repeat, you know I will. Click the Soundcloud jump below for a free download!

So remember that dude who produced Vic Mensa’s huge track Feel That? That same dude, Smoko Ono, is now moving onto bigger and better things. Case and point with his brand new track featuring the Chicago songstress and Most Dope artist, Njomza. The track starts up slow but really gains its character with the build up. Is this is any indication on what Smoko’s upcoming EP, Slackin & Mackin, which will be released this fall, then it’s definitely going to be big. Peep the song below and get affiliated with the man crafting a lot of the beats behind Chicago hip-hop.
