Hip-Hop, Mixtapes, Rap | Check out “Servin” (Feat. StoneyThaDealer) off of Problem’s new mixtape “Mollywood 3: The Relapse”

Posted by on June 30, 2015

Last Friday morning at 6:00am I drove to LA on a 6 hour journey to see Problem’s viewing of his upcoming “Mollywood 3: The Relapse” mixtape in Hollywood. Part one of his mixtape is entitled “A Side” and was released today exclusively to HotNewHipHop.com at 3:54pm EST. Part 2 of his mixtape is entitled “B side” and will be released on July 2nd. Essentially he played 45 seconds of each song and let me tell you that this mixtape is filled with some big time bangers. The whole mixtape is very impressive but some notable tracks to look out for are “Servin,” “Relapse,” and “Make Me Say (At Yi Yi).” “Mollywood 3 is what’s needed right now,” explains Problem. “I’m not satisfied with how the club, the streets, nor how the playlists in all the ladies cars sounds like right now. I’m inspired by DIAMOND LANE. I’m inspired by independence. So when I chose to do a double cd, but drop each side on two different days, the reason is as simple as this: because I muthaf***in can.” After listening to this mixtape, it is safe to say that Problem is back. Enjoy!

Hip-Hop, Mixtapes, Rap | EaSWay – les bourgeois (Mixtape)

Posted by on May 23, 2015

EaSWay’s new project, Les Bourgeois, is a commentary on the mislead priorities and insignificant desires of a lost generation. EaSWay raps about the good, the bad and the tempting throughout this mixtape and he is never too righteous to deem himself above the rest of his generation. The tape is a mix of songs about love, sex, money, and fame and as standard as that might sound, it is delivered in a way that brings new light on the subjects.

Electro, Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | Quinn – Change of Scenery (EP)

Posted by on May 4, 2015

Quinn is no stranger to Fresh New Tracks, after we premiered his lead single “Never Done This“, readers and listeners got a taste of his pop-leaning “FFYL“. Originally from Michigan, only a year ago Quinn was making music from his dorm room that could easily be written off as “college-rap.”

Now, only a few short months later –in that same dorm room– Quinn has matured both sonically and lyrically. For an artist trying to be a darling of taste-maker, cool kid blogs, while simultaneously attempting to capture a mainstream audiences ear, it’s imperative that he or she be brutally self-aware.

“Everybody hit that shmoney ’bout a week ago // yeah I know that’s not my style, but I still play it though,” raps Quinn on Change of Scenery‘s opening track “Native Tongue”.

In a world where artists are immediately boxed off or even disregarded to a specific genre, Quinn is breaking through the mold. Listen below as he sing-raps and grabs attention with ease through his Top-40-ready hooks.

Hip-Hop, Mixtapes, Rap | Jon Waltz – Alyss (EP)

After numerous praise-worthy singles, the time has finally come for Jon Waltz’s full project. Accompanied by a unique story and visual representation, “Alyss”, proves to be an incredibly cohesive and well thought-out body of work.

In my mind, Waltz is still actively searching to find his voice, as well as his core audience. There are moments on the EP where one can hear obvious Drake influences, or perhaps the out layer of a Skizzy Mars shell that is shedding. That being said, Jon Waltz and “Alyss” speak to a very different group of people than both of the aforementioned artists.

For kids trying to find their place in the world, or young adults that simply like to question why things happen the way they do, “Alyss” is a must listen.
