Halloween is just over a week away, and with the scariest day of the year on the immediate horizon, Frank figured it was only right to drop some Goosebumps in audio form. Are you afraid of the dark? Well, not my problem if so or if not, but just remember to always stay woke out there.

In celebration of Frank Leone’s self-produced album #EnterWILD nearing 100% completion, and in anniversary of his debut EP “Deep Ocean” turning 2 years old this week [https://frankleone.bandcamp.com/album/deep-ocean], Frank has curated a 5 piece EP of songs, ideas, and adventures that didn’t make the album. “BITES, BUMPS, & SCRATCHES” contains production from THEMpeople, Knxwledge, & King Supertramp himself along with all new vocals from the 19 year old Emcee.

via Noisey, who we’ve partnered with for our new series: Music To Fake Shore Driveby

Last month, we introduced Music to Fake Shore Driveby, a mix series partnering with our friends at the Midwest’s pre-eminent hip-hop blog, Fake Shore Drive, in which Andrew Barber and Ty Howard share and weigh in on some of the hottest songs coming out of their part of the country.

We’re big fans of Chicago hip-hop, and we’ve been watching artists like Dreezy and Saba, but, as big as the City of the Big Shoulders is, the Midwest has even more to offer, whether in the form of Gary, Indiana’s Freddie Gibbs or Detroit artists like DeJ Loaf and Doughboyz Cashout. In the latest installment of the mix, you’ll get familiar with these artists and others. Read on to learn about the latest sounds from the Midwest and listen to Music to Fake Shore Driveby Volume Two.
