Frank Leone – 0-Ahaaa

| October 21, 2014 | 0 Comments

unnamed-2

Some funky fly newness from that boy Frank Leone. Apparently, Frank will be dropping new music each and everyday this week. The joints he’s letting lose were songs that didn’t make his forthcoming project, EnterWILD. There must be something wrong with my ears, because this joint sure sounds damn good to me. Well, cutting room records get run here, so check out “0-Ahaaa” below.

In celebration of my EP “Deep Ocean” turning two years old in two hours, I’m releasing a new song every day this week on my bandcamp. The songs will be compiled into an EP available at the end of the week called Bites, Bumps, & Scratches, named after pieces that didn’t make my album #EnterWILD releasing this fall.

Chief Keef Has Been Dropped By Interscope Records

Damn. AllHipHop is reporting that Chief Keef has been quietly released from his Interscope Records recording contract. If you remember correctly, Keef was inked to a very lucrative multi-million dollar deal two years ago that resulted in one album, Finally Rich, which has since moved under 200,000 units.

AHH says Interscope and the Glo Gang crew couldn’t come to terms on an album, and felt the artist was too much of a liability to deal with. They claim his move to Los Angeles was the final straw.

I can’t say I didn’t see this coming, however. I think staying indie is the best option for Keef at this point. Then he can be free to make the type of music he wants, clear of restrictions and major label appeasement.

I’m not sure where A-Villa is rounding up these line ups, but cot damn. He’s got some high profile features from artists you’d probably never hear together otherwise. But he somehow makes them sound dope. I think he’s just picking names of out a hat and then seeing if he can make them come together and sound good. A personal challenge if you will. Not mad at this one either.

Anyhoo, production wiz Villa returns today with another leak from his Live From The Villa project, which is due out in November via Closed Sessions. Roc, Action and William. Live and direct.

Produced by Doc Da Mindbenda

New music from Your Prince is now upon us. After dropping one of the dopest and most inspired albums of his career a few months back with Backwood Jones, YP returns with another fire drop, “Thinkin’ Bout.” If you were even thinkin’ bout skipping over this, you better think again. This shit knocks. Pay attention.

Video: Saba f/ Eryn Allen Kane – Burnout

| October 21, 2014 | 0 Comments

Directed by HOTC TV

Finally, my favorite track from Saba’s stellar project, ComfortZone, gets a video. The video is absolutely fantastic, and features the super-dope Eryn Allen Kanye on the hook. This is like the 2014 rap version of Pee Wee’s Playhouse. Unfortunately, I think both artists might be too young to get that reference. Either way, hit play on “Burnout.” You won’t be disappointed.
