If you know me personally, or have followed the site over the past five (gasp!) years, then you’re surely aware of my fondness for Common’s One Day It’ll All Make Sense album. But when circling back and perusing through Com’s illustrious catalog, One Day is often overlooked as one of his bests. Thinking back some 15 years, I remember rap peers claiming Common was ‘reaching’ too hard for that commercial audience, caught between the keeping-it-real-isms of Resurrection and the jiggy soundscapes that dominated 1997.
This 8TMG compilation, helmed by Young Chop, is shaping up rather nicely. Chop, who is never one to hold his tongue, has been surprisingly quiet about this project, and has decided to let the music do the talking instead. The last leak, “Codeine,” was ranked as one of our favorite records of the week, and he carries on tradition with “So Amazin,” featuring Rampage. A one trick pony? Nah, never that.
You’re probably wondering where Chris Mille has been. Well, for the record he’s been working, as evidenced by the title of his forthcoming mixtape, the aptly titled Work. He might’ve been gone for a short while, but here he let’s us know he’s right back. This one is a banger.
Work is due out 10/15

You get what I’m saying. This is something new from Scheme and DJ Scend’s upcoming album Pesos Turn to Dollars which will be a mixture of Spanish/English rap tunes. More videos, leaks and music coming soon. But for now take a few puffs on grown man smoke.
