Wale’s upcoming third album, The Gifted, is gearing up to be one of his most consistent projects to date. While his debut was uneven and burdened by too many crossover attempts, his second was too MMG-influenced and aggressive. The first three leaks we’ve received from this new album, though, have all had that soulful style of Wale’s, which was the signature of his successful early mixtapes. This is the first of two new singles Wale dropped today in preparation for his album’s June 25th release, featuring a smooth Jake One beat and a couple quality guest verses courtesy of Lupe Fiasco and Rick Ross. Gotta love Lupe’s “olly olly oxen free” reference and the way he flips the chorus at the end, and Rozay’s verse isn’t half bad, either. June is shaping up to be a wonderful month for hip-hop.

“I ball hard, all year N***a“
Blown away. That would best describe my reaction to Meek Mill’s brand new mixtape, Dreamchasers 2. After the multiple leaks, such as “Burn” and “Amen”, we finally get to listen to it in it’s entirety. The beats are phenomenal but nowhere near as good as his flow, killing every single song. Spitting with some serious emotion, Meek makes each song a must listen from start to finish. Garnering a slew of notable features from the likes of Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Rozay, Wale, 2 CHAINNNZZZZZ (had to), Fabolous, Mac Miller, and French Montana, the tape is too good to be true. So download it and clear a good hour out of your schedule, because you want to listen to this.

Boston’s own, Moufy, teams up with fellow Bostonian and MMG member, Masspike Miles, for the first single off his upcoming EP, Humble Season, dropping later this spring. Moufy definitely toned down his energetic sound on this one, retaining the emotion but delivering a smoother relationship track over the Louis Lü Balz Bell beat. In my opinion Moufy is near his best when he slows it down and focuses on the lyrical message of the song as he’s done on “Miss Newon” & “Whispers of a Cloud”. Judging by the success Moufy saw in 2011, I can see this EP doing some serious numbers.
