This is a triumphant new jam from 18-year-old Maryland artist Tray Jack, off his mixtape Time Travel which is currently drawing a significant amount of attention over at DatPiff. I admit that I usually exercise a little bit of profiling on young hip-hop artists, as they tend to submit songs with a rawer, less mature sound and structured rhymes. Tray Jack, however, really impressed me with this one. He has a unique and engaging flow, and over this high-quality, radio-relevant beat, shows some shades of a strong personality that emerges more throughout the project and will certainly develop as he progresses. Check out “Give It All” below and be sure to connect with the young emcee on Twitter here.

Castro has proven his worth over and over, slaying his last track “Worldwide”, which featured fellow #Rattpack -ers Logic and 6ix. Equipped with an artillery of automatic weapons, Castro can easily trigger his lyrical machine gun, but rather decides to keep it female friendly on this track and bring us a song about his temporary lady friend. With production from Official OB and camera work from GXL, the DMV is hard at work to put the #RattPack on the map. Although there has been no official announcement just yet, we predict © will be dropping his debut mixtape sometime this fall.

Laidback Luke, Cost & Norman Doray – Trilogy (Original Mix) was an outstanding track in its own right with each of the producers having an influence on the track and putting together a key vocal as part of the melody. The remixers all do what you would expect from them with Swanky Tunes bringing some high energy progressive house to the track, Sebjack pounding out some heavy electro house synths, GTA, sticking to the name of their “Big Room” remix and creating a fantastic big room house remix, and Sam O Neall & C6 providing an electro remix with a heavy guitar melody. The original mix still remains essential, but these remixes are nice additions to the collection. After the jump I added a banging original track from Bassment Bros, a Dj trio from the University of Maryland, that combines pulsing synth chords, an uplifting melody, and a pounding bass line with some female vocals. DO NOT miss that read on button.

One of the fan favorites off Logic’s recent mixtape, Young Sinatra, here is the live footage of the Maryland MC killing it live on the air at WMUC 88.1 FM, University of Maryland. This is by far one of the rawest tracks off the tape as Logic puts on a clinic for any artist wondering how to lyrically annihilate a beat. As the beat loops, Logic’s confidence builds, giving hip-hop heads a breath of fresh air. If you haven’t yet, be sure to download the full project, Young Sinatra, below.
