It’s that time of the week again. Do remember, that if the song dropped anytime since last Friday (10/17) 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.

Common recently sat down with Revolt TV and took some time to reflect on the 20-year anniversary of his second studio album, Resurrection. The album, which features “I Used To Love H.E.R.”, was originally released October 25th, 1994. Crazy, right?
In the clip above, Com touches on his sophomore album and what it’s like to still be working with No I.D. and Twilite Tone twenty years later. Check out what Com had to say above and be sure to revisit Resurrection.

As promised, Lupe Fiasco returns with the new tune, “Haile Selassie.” And yes, he’s back with longtime producer Soundtrakk (which makes us very happy.) His homie Nikki Jean shows up to assist.

Jewels keeps the new music rolling with his latest offering, “Money Machine”. This new joint serves as the second single from G.O.’s upcoming album, Go On Dreaming, which I’m definitely looking forward to hearing.
This joint’s hard. Check out “Money Machine” below and look for Go On Dreaming to impact sometime in the near future.
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.

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.

Pugslee is back with a new release — and this time he’s paired up with Senegal producer Portformat. Pugs always has a bunch of irons in the fire, so you can count on hearing this on one of the many projects he’s putting together for the end of 2014 and early 2015. Dude stays working. But you already know that.
