LOGIC Under Pressure Album Cover 500x500 Logic   Under Pressure

I’m lost for words.  I’ve been playing this moment out in my head for years, forecasting scenarios and making predictions on Logic’s debut.  “Is Logic ever going to let me buy a song? What will the first single sound like?  Who’s going to produce it?  What will it be called?  When will the album drop?” …I could go on and on but I’ll spare you.  I’ll continue to play out new scenarios in my head, but what is boils down to is this. LOGIC IS OFFICIALLY ON ITUNES AND HIS DEBUT ALBUM, UNDER PRESSURE, WILL HIT BOX STORE SHELVES & DIGITAL STORES ON 10/21!!  Not only is his debut self titled single crack, but he produced it himself.  Put your seat belts on kids, the ride has officially begun.  #UnderPressure

Electronic, Hip-Hop | Daytrip – The Escape (ft. Treez Lowkey, Daye Jack, Kidepo)

The journey forges on as the Daytrip boys stop off in Port-au-Prince with fellow rising stars, Treez Lowkey, Daye Jack, and Kidepo. The song is ferocious, you can almost see these artists sprinting through the tropical Port-au-Prince landscape. The question is did they make it out alive?

Treez Lowkey busts out of the gate and kicks things off with his verse, followed by the croon of Daye Jack. However, it has to be the vocalist Kidepo who steals the show. His silky outro calms the storm and makes you think that whatever it was Daytrip was escaping from, they did successfully.

Hip-Hop | Jon Waltz – Victoria (ft. Allan Kingdom)

 Jon Waltz   Victoria (ft. Allan Kingdom)

Jon Waltz is slowly, but surely finding his way to the top of my “Up and Comers to Watch Out For” list. On his most recent release Waltz teams up with Allan Kingdom, a rapper from up north who has been causing a buzz alongside Spooky Black and their clique, The Standard.

The two oddball rappers fit perfectly on this track and make a record that is equal parts melodic as it is eccentric.

Wherever Victoria is out there, hopefully she heard this song.

Hip-Hop, Rap | Mike Melinoe – Hold My Dust

 Mike Melinoe   Hold My Dust

Hailing from Detroit is Mike Melinoe, an emcee and part of the rap conglomerate known as Organic Geniuses. In anticipation of his new project, PropeR Element$, Melinoe has dropped off a captivating single titled, “Hold My Dust”.

His voice is raspy, yet intoxicating. His lyricism is dark, yet playful. The instrumental is old-school, yet contemporary and unique.

Nothing about “Hold My Dust” is ordinary, and that shows. While only 22, Melinoe strikes me as a young emcee to really make some moves this coming year.

Tune back in for PropeR Element$, and enjoy some hip-hop for your weekend.

Fueling my addiction for Virginia-based rap music is the new comer Bobby Capri. Although this project wasn’t even supposed to come out, I’m sure glad it did. There is an essence of old-school paired with contemporary rhyming to make for a very enjoyable project.

Virginia’s music scene is bubbling to say the least, so it will be exciting to see where Capri ends up within it all.

Sean Leon, probably the next big thing out of the TO, has done it again with his smooth flow and flawless production. The production uses beautiful piano and is a perfect release until Sean Leon puts out his next project. I hope this holds you over, cause I really hope there are more like this in the future.

The boy Olu has been on his grind for years now, putting himself on my radar with his non-chalant flow on his single “Apple Juice Break” and ever since he’s been steadily building his fan base, and today felt about right to feature his latest single “Practice” which I can’t not attribute to Allen Iverson’s “practice” tirade, but the concept is that shit I love. Get your G on to Olu, and check out his Kaytranada produced track “Work” here if you haven’t heard it yet! This is a must listen and must download!
