pharoahe-monch-lost-in-translation-front

On last year’s PTSD: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Pharoahe Monch delved deep into his personal depression and battle with the music industry. But the mood is lifted on his new Valentine’s Day mixtape, Lost In Translation. Featuring previously heard songs with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Jill Scott and will.i.am, as well as an unreleased collaboration with Phonte, the project, in Pharoahe’s own words, “is a retrospective of songs about the pursuit of love, love lost & regained & its beautiful emotional journey.”

two-9 b4frvr

Two-9 is a name you’ll be hearing a lot more in 2015. Although the crew — lead by rappers Curtis Williams, Jace, Ceej, Dav.E and Light Skin Mac 11 — are still searching for that breakout record that has propelled so many Atlanta acts to stardom, they’ve managed to carve out their own lane in the city’s crowded scene. Blending traditional lyricism with youthful energy, Two-9 has built a small but growing fan base right from the ground up. It also helps that they’ve got Mike WiLL Made It in their corner, having signed to the producer’s Ear Drumma Records label last summer.

Today (on 2/9 at 2:09pm, naturally) Two-9 kickstart what is sure to be their biggest year yet with the release of their long-awaited mixtape, B4FRVR. It’s their first group project since 2012’s #Two9Forever, which was the last to feature co-founder and recent solo success Key! But even with a member light, Two-9 have never been in better shape. Guest spots come from Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign and Rae Sremmurd, while Mike WiLL, Childish Major, Metro Boomin and more provide the production.

your old droog

While comparisons to legends like Nas could easily derail some MC’s careers, Your Old Droog has only flourished since the conspiracy theories hit the ‘net (and eventually fizzled out, because common sense always prevails). Just a few months after releasing his debut self-titled album, the gravely voiced Coney Island native is back with this new 11-track EP titled Kinison.

As the artwork suggests, the project draws inspiration from classic rock with Droog namedropping bands like Rage Against the Machine, Sonic Youth and Porno for Pyros while testing his rhymes over more riff-driven production (“Homicide,” “Freeway Fire,” “Mule Juice”). It’s another strong addiction to Droog’s growing catalog before he hits the road with Royce Da 5’9, DJ Premier and Boldy James later this month.

hodgy beats dena tape 2

Hodgy Beats has built up a nice little catalog since Odd Future broke onto the scene back in 2011, and tonight he debuts his latest project, Dena Tape 2. Hosted by Don Cannon (CannonCannon), the 12-track effort largely features all-new material, but it also sees Hodgy spitting over Kendrick Lamar, OutKast, Lupe Fiasco and Major Lazer instrumentals. Hit-Boy and Domo Genesis fill the guest spots while Left Brain, Marvel Alexander and Sap provide the production.
