HS87′s secret weapon is here to cure your Monday blues with this surprise EP, J O U R N E Y. The crooner/producer serves up six new songs which range from the impassioned “The Ride” and the speaker-shaking “Cold” to “Freak (She Told Me),” which channels the disco funk of “Blurred Lines” and “Suit & Tie.” I can’t help but to draw comparisons to Frank Ocean, but it’ll be interesting to see how K. Roosevelt carves his own lane in the R&B world.

bobby womack

Paying tribute to the late, great Bobby Womack, who tragically passed away at age 70 on Friday (June 27), 9th Wonder has released this new mixtape titled Farewell to the Soul Man. The free download contains every beat the Jamla producer has made using a sample of Womack’s music, which means 11 tracks of reinterpreted soulful gems.

Usher also recently paid his respects to the late Soul legend, telling Miss Info, “Bobby Womack is a classic [artist] and will always be.” Watch his full interview here.

Baltimore’s DJ Nick and A$AP Mob’s A$AP Ant finally flood the streets with their follow up tape, The Big Payback. The oft-overlooked rapper grabs up comrades A$AP Rocky, Action Bronson, ScHoolBoy Q and A$AP Ferg to help bring this tape to life. Even if some are just in interlude form, his homies add a nostalgic mixtape feel to the project. Nevertheless, this is an entertaining tape indeed.

Kickstart your summer below. Just don’t forget the sunscreen.

xxl freshmen mixtape 2014

Between the individual freestyles, cyphers and roundtable discussions, there’s always plenty of post-cover content when it comes to XXL‘s annual Freshmen lists. Rounding out this year’s edition, XXL has finally debuted the 2014 Freshmen mixtape, hosted by DJ Drama. The 21-track project includes brand new material from the majority of the rookies, as well as a few guest spots from veterans like 2 Chainz, Fabolous and Lloyd Banks.

While it’s unlikely many of these records are going to propel the freshmen to new heights, there’s definitely some gems hiding in the rough. Peep Isaiah Rashad’s “Part IV,” Lil Durk’s “Oh Lord” and Lil Bibby’s “What You Live For.”
