 You Woul Aaron Cohen   You Wouldnt Know (Feat. Alexander Spit) [Prod. Eff.Dope (TribeGvng)] Facebook | SoundCloud | Twitter

New York City rapper Aaron Cohen went hard with his latest track “You Wouldn’t Know” featuring Alexander Spit, and to be honest there are very few rap records I can listen to on repeat, but when there’s one tune that stands out, it becomes my anthem for the night. Well tonight I can’t help but vibe to the non-chalant, no fux given flow of both Aaron Cohen and Alexander Spit over a beat you can literally picture the sounds haunting the shit out of a dim lit studio late night, early morning, where both MCs recorded their verses. This is a must listen and a must download!

We told you months ago that Florida hip-hop artist, QuESt, would be next in line to receive “the VMG treatment”.  Joining the established roster of Logic, Jon Bellion, & 6ix, QuESt brings another lengthy resume of musical intelligence as well as a trunk full of rhymes to Visionary Music Group’s concrete foundation.

John Q hasn’t been traveling on a paved road since day one.  He’s been at this rap thing for years now but it wasn’t until he crossed paths with Visionary’s President, Chris Zarou, when his hopes and dreams of making a career out of music actually became a reality.  “May 10, 2012″ is an introduction into his life, his struggles, the drive to continue and the adversity he faced in his personal life that led him to this place.  6ix’s vibrant production led by brass instrumentals sets the tone for Q’s storyline, which in turn sets the stage for the full story…Searching Sylvan, the mixtape dropping 9.3.14.  Catch him on social below and stay tuned as QuESt continues to unveil his compelling journey.

Genres are dumb. Especially when it comes to a talent such as The GTW. Nigerian-born, and Chicago-bred, The GTW pulls influences from enumerable locations in to his music. A voice tender enough to put you to sleep, yet intriguing enough to keep you begging for, more fills the pockets of the contemporary production it’s put on top of.

The African-elements to the music are evident, each different addition to the soundscape warm and comforting. I could ramble endlessly trying to decipher what The GTW’s sound is exactly, but it’s probably best for you to take a look at the video above.

 Chet Faker x GoldLink   On You

GoldLink is currently one of those artists that I just cannot get enough of – and fortunately for me he just keeps releasing one gem after another. The unlikely yet surprisingly compatible pairing of the rising hip hop star and ubiquitous Australian vocalist Chet Faker definitely delivers, with a beautiful, catchy chorus courtesy of Faker and some honest rhymes by GoldLink, wrapped up with some soulful keyboarding, perfect for those lazy Sunday mornings having breakfast in bed (“breakfast”) with your main squeeze.
