Abstract Hip-Hop | Chance the Rapper, Lido, and Towkio Join Forces to Drop One of the Best Songs of 2015
Posted by dshaq on April 8, 2015
The combination of the people on this track was a precursor to just how good this track was going to be. As much as I expected out of this song, it surpassed any and all expectations. The beginning with Lido’s chorus then slows down into a beautiful synthy piano to compliment Towkio’s flow then switching to the juke style beat to let you reminisce just how good Chance’s flow is over that type of beat. Bliss. A group of young individuals who are ahead of the artist curve, and all are paving the way for themselves to solidify their stay in the music industry. Look out for Towkio’s mixtape coming out soon, Lido’s LP, and Chance’s SURF project with the SOX. Good music is on the way so rejoice! In the mean time, let this hold you over.
Abstract Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop, Videos | Christian Deshun Capitalizes On Kendrick Lamar Taking Instrumental
Posted by VMan on April 1, 2015
When Los Angeles Based Christian Deshun first heard To Pimp A Butterfly by Kendrick Lamar a weird sense drifted over him. Upon reaching “Momma”, Christian realized that K. Dot had used an instrumental that he released last year on his EP SMPLCTY. It was on a record titled “Thank You”, which was produced by buzzing producer KNXWLEDGE. But instead of it bringing him down and feeling haste, Christian had felt honored that him and K. Dot have the same ear sort of feeling as a pioneer. “If K. Dot liked this now, and I recorded this last year this sort of makes me ahead of my time as an innovator”, stated Christian.
Well two weeks after this debacle, Christian released a video titled “Undisclosed”. This was recorded at a time when Christian and his Friends where financially broke and hanging out in a decrepit building off the beaten path. But even though they were financially unstable, they were intellectually rich. The meaning “Undisclosed” came from the fact that you couldn’t find this house even if you tried, it would not register in a GPS device.
For now the future looks bright for the budding star out of LA. Hoping to put Louisiana on the map via Los Angeles he definitely carries the character, drive, and personality to attain these goals.

Listen up and listen good. Appleby has been grabbing my attention with each of his few but powerful releases. Today we welcome Him and his brand new single Drinkin’ to FNT. He brings a new and different sound with each new song, and Drinkin’ is no different. Bee actually had a quick something to say about the song:
“The concept and act of drinking is a newly formed habit of mine. Introduced to me last year through an adventurous relationship that ended in mutual silence. Drinkin’ gives insight but reserves the details for a future release.”
What impresses me so much with Appleby and his sound is the artistry behind it. Whether it is the hooks, verses, or production, everything builds together in fantastic harmony. Coupled with Appleby’s fantastic lyricism, his sound is something that will be around to stay. Get to know Appleby and his sound. Also Bee decided to give out another track “Scars in Waiting” which also will help you get to know Appleby. Enjoy and look out for more to come.

Too be honest, this dude came out of nowhere. One minute I was aimlessly looking at nothing on the internet and the next I was the most stoked I’ve been in a while to say the least. At first it was just the music video, displayed above, that turnt me up. On my Reddit feed it read “VISUAL MINDBLOWING VIDEO & MUSIC”, “Wait for the watermelon to explode after the asian man plays the flute”, and “Cartoons, nature, and asian man, and a watermelon. Honey for your eyes” so I was intrigued – which he definitely wasn’t lying once I got to actually watching the music video. F****** brilliant. I was then so stoked off the music video that I found a SoundCloud link and clicked it instantly. Not only is “Woods” a vibing, feel good beat, his other compositions are crazy impressive as well. Hozy is 100% worth the look with other dope songs like “You Just Got Abducted by Some Turnt Up Aliens” and “Retro Heartbreak“; It’ll be exciting to see what this aspiring artist will come up with next.

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.
