It’s that time of the week again. Do remember, that if the song dropped anytime since last Friday (1/23) it’s eligible for the list. Now we aren’t saying these are the BEST songs of the week, but they are the staff’s faves and joints you can catch us bumping in the office.
The time is now and the place is here. The Cost Of Victory is upon us. Vic Spencer’s long-awaited and often touted album is here. Vic is one of the most unique minds and voices in the local scene, and it’s now time for the rest of the world to take note.
His patented slick shit-talking is all over the project, not to mention his off-kilter rap style and lyrical wizardry. The beats compliment Sir Spencer’s style perfectly. It is 15 tracks deep, and DC, Doc Da Mindbenda, Fortified Sounds, Illeet show up to produce. On the features tip, Sean Price, Primeridian and Black Spade jump down.
The Cost of Victory? Priceless. So get it while the getting is good. It’s now available below.
More prayer hand emojis.
As if Big Sean and Drake’s “Blessings” wasn’t crazy enough, the remix featuring none other than Yeezus is already here thanks to DJ Skee. Yes, you read that right — the “Blessings” remix features a verse from ‘Ye and can be found directly below the jump.
Unfortunately, radio-rip only for now. Vinylz on the beat. Sean’s Dark Sky Paradise LP drops February 24th.
Update: Official stream added.
After dropping off some heat in the form of “Robber” yesterday, Ty Money returns with some more fire. This time around, Ty takes the backdrop Will-A-Fool cooked up for Cap 1’s “Reckless” and makes it his own.
Yeah, Ty killed this. Shouts to DJ Victoriouz for the assist. Check out “Reckless” below.
Produced by Mulatto Beats and Supa Bwe.
Hurt Everybody’s back and they’re taking everyone to 2047 with “2K47,” the title track and first single from their forthcoming project. 2K47 doesn’t have a concrete release date just yet, but you can expect it to impact sometime this spring. Listen to “2K47″ below.
Sidenote: Blade Runner’s one of my favorite films. Nice art, guys. Ha!
Chance The Winner
Chance has graced the cover of many a magazine, but today his vibrant feature in Gentleman’s Quarterly finally dropped online. The piece focuses on Chance’s rise to stardom, The Social Experiment and plenty more.
But the biggest EYEBALL EMOJI moment was the revealing first paragraph, which disclosed Chance’s debut LP is to feature Frank Ocean, J. Cole and Andre 3000. Well, damn!
His subsequent guest appearances—nasally breathless, startlingly precocious—gained the attention of artists like Frank Ocean, J. Cole, and André 3000, all of whom will appear on his yet to be named debut LP.
Shoot over to their site to read the entire piece. Looks like 2015 is going to be another banner year for Chano. Check out pictures from the spread below.

You know how yesterday I told you that Vic Spencer was done releasing stuff until his album drops tomorrow (1/29). Well, I lied to you. Sorry about that. Hopefully you can forgive me, as Vic has had yet another rap “Relapse,” with his latest video you see above.
The Cost of Victory drops tomorrow afternoon, but until then, go back down that dark alley with his gritty new video you see above. You can also check out the official, painted artwork for the album below. Realism at its finest!
Check back tomorrow for V-I-C’s latest.

Do you hear Ric? You will with his latest release, “Lone Pools.” Take a dip into the lonely mind of Mr. Wilson, where he talks music, love and various other life battles. Float on above.
