We said it last week, but I’ll say it again: the artwork for TREESWAG is awesome. No seriously. Artwork is, well, a lost art nowadays, so it’s nice to see someone put some creativity and thought into still images. People forget that these images are your calling cards. Yeah, people consume the product differently, but the images still hold power. You should know that, though. Common sense.
But I digress.
We told you this collabo project from Crack and Tree was coming, and today they show and prove with the first leak, “Cuts.” How does it cut? I think very deeply. Tree on production, with Crack on the vocals. Tree and Crack in the cut, that’s a scary sight.
Peep it below.
CAKEatersTV has gathered a few of the city’s illest emcees for a new project, which they’re calling Black Canvas. The series kicks off right here and right now on FSD will run for the rest of the week, featuring verses from ShowYouSuck, Saba and Legit just to name a few.
Fun fact: CAKEatersTV is the brainchild of Nick Astro, who drops off his contribution to the Black Canvas series today. Nick’s someone you need to look out for behind the lens and in the booth.
King Thelo reworks Future’s current smash, giving “Move That Dope” that Martin swing. I predict this one is gonna move those plays. Young producer move those plays.

It’s tax day. Some of you are either paying Uncle Sam, or cashing out because of him. Whatever your outcome, it’s sure to be income. So as an added bonus to tax day, A. Wiley gives us the extended version of his most recent release, “Vibration.” The extendo clip features a new off-the-dome verse with all new bars and is a Spotify release.
May the good Vibes keep coming for Alex. Check out the re-release below. Village Party coming soon.

The elusive Myspace pose. It’s one of the most rare moves known to man. Yet it’s also v distinguished. That being said, HighLife brings his vision of the Myspace to life with the Myspace Boogie you see above.
This track was featured on High’s self-titled debut which dropped last year. The track also featured Caleb James and Vic Mensa, but in this clip HighLife is a loner stoner. But man, this sure is entertaining. Fun Fact: this video was inspired by a Southern Comfort ad from a few years back. The more you know.
Watch him get down to business by pressing play above. It’s nothing but Goodtime$.
