Fresh New Track’s favorite emcee, Jetpack Jones, hits us with his latest masterpiece, Solar. Solar is different than most Jetpack tracks, but instead of leaving you all to struggle trying to find out what that special something is, I’ll just tell you. Jetpack recruited a singer to sing his hook. Usually, Jetpack sings his own hooks, but I think that this is a nice change up and let’s him focus on purely rapping. “Solar” is my favorite Jetpack track to date, and I’m sure his upcoming mixtape, Beyond Infinity, will have plenty of songs just like this for me to vibe to. Grab the track for free courtesy of the man and be on the lookout for the next single off of “Beyond Infinity”

FNT favorite, Jetpack Jones, unleashes his newest single on the interwebs today. My internet was being spotty(shout out to Bright House customer care on Twitter) and I couldn’t listen to the song for about 3 hours. When I finally realized I should download it instead of trying to stream it, I was hit with a sense of euphoria as I listened to the track for the first time. Jetpack often sends me music and claims it’s his best work to date, I’ve grown accustomed to hearing the same sound from him. That is by no means a bad thing, as I enjoy his sound immensely, but this song has changed my view entirely. That Blow does have the same Jetpack feel I’ve come to know, along with the extraterrestrial-type beat he so often paints his pictures over, but it also features the best lyrics I’ve ever heard from the Lakewood rapper. Stream and download the track below and check out Jetpack on Facebook and Twitter.

Sol is back. After a long hiatus traveling the world, Sol returns to the states this month. If this is any hint of what 10 months off from music does for him, I’d like to see him take 20. Just kidding, I couldn’t go that long with out Sol. The production duo The Zillas handles the production, and they flip the beat at around 3:11 and Sol kills it again. It’s like Sol never missed a beat(no pun intended), he’s picking up right where he left off, but better. Judging off this track his flow has become more polished and his lyrics have become sharper. Stream the track below and be on the lookout for more Sol coming soon.

When I received a musical submission from my necklace making brother, Charlie Hudson, I was a bit skeptical. The guy does make some nice necklaces, but what does he know about music? Well, apparently he knows a lot. A week after receiving his initial email, I’ve finally gotten around to listening to it. From the first 5 seconds, I knew I’d love it. I’m addicted to old school samples, and that’s what originally drew me in. But what made me hit the replay button four (4!) times were the verses from Salomon Faye and Ensani Leber. I had never heard of THEillUZiON movement up until last week, but it’s something I will be quickly educating myself on. Check out Salomon on twitter here, and Ensani here.

Let me introduce you to FNT newcomer, Von La’Flare. Hailing from Chicago, Von embraces the Chicago trap sound. La’Flare has a smooth sounding flow added with some quality verses that makes it a must listen. The flow works real well over King Kilo’s heavy hitting beat, which compliments the heavier bass with the softer piano riff. Von’s mixtape “Leaders Never Follow” comes out on Thursday so make sure to look out for that one. Shoutout KP.

The viral video craze that accompanies Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” has hit the stratosphere in the last week as thousands of YouTube users upload their own chaos filled videos to the trap beat. To my surprise, not many opportunistic rappers have jumped on it. I guess it was a perfect fit for PropaneLv and the next installment in his cover series – and he had the LTRMN goons on deck to give his video for it the usual Harlem Shake treatment. Download is on his Facebook below.
