skyzoo-torae-barrell-brothers

People say New York hip-hop is dead — which is true, in a sense — but you don’t have to dig deep in the Rotten Apple to find microphone murderers. Brooklyn natives Skyzoo and Torae have proven themselves as two of the underground’s most consistent spitters, and on May 27, will release their very first joint album, Barrell Brothers. Today we’re treated to the project’s first single, “Blue Yankee Fitted,” and it’s everything you’d hope for: brutal bars, grimy production from !llmind and that undeniable essence of New York rap.

oncue dsfm

There aren’t many rappers outside of Kid Cudi who call themselves Ratatat fans, but OnCue knows what’s good with the Brooklyn rockers. For his latest track, “DSFM,” the Connecticut MC jumps on Ratatat’s soothing “Cherry,” which turns out to be the perfect backdrop for him to wax poetic about his relationship issues. You can keep the drama, because Cue just wants to “drink and smoke and make a lot of fucking money.” We feel you on that, man.

After numerous delays, OnCue’s debut album Angry Young Man is finally set to drop this summer, and it’s being executive produced by none other than Just Blaze.

hit boy hs87

Hit-Boy may have struck gold with “N***as In Paris” three years ago, but the Fontana, CA native was quietly cutting his teeth for the likes of Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne and Mary J. Blige way before that. You can hear about that from the man himself on his new track, “Grindin’ My Whole Life,” which serves as the latest sample of his HS87 collective’s upcoming compilation album, We the Plug. As Audio Push announced earlier this week, the project will drop May 6.

rome fortune peewee longway

Rome Fortune has given us plenty of early previews of his upcoming Drives, Thighs, & Lies EP (out April 30) with DunDeal, including “Come & Get It,” which we premiered a few weeks ago. Today Rome returns with another new track alongside fellow ATLien PeeWee Longway and ShoMo, which puts the pursuit of paper to a playground bounce. If you think you’ve got Rome or any of Atlanta’s new stars pinned down, think again.

logic big sean.jpg

Logic and Big Sean have a lot in common: they’re both signed to Def Jam, they both fall under No I.D.’s unofficial mentorship program, they’ve both been XXL Freshmen, and they’re both big on the college circuit. So, it only makes sense that the pair would collaborate eventually. As he gets ready to release his new EP, While You Wait, Logic lands a verse from Sean on his latest track, “Alright,” which features brooding production from Tae Beast of TDE’s Digi+Phonics team.

joey badass mr wonderful

Earlier this month, Fashawn and Exile teamed up for a new song, which they recorded for Timothy Bradley ahead of his fight with Manny Pacqiauo (well, we know how that one went, but it was a dope song nonetheless). In similar fashion, Joey Bada$$ and producer Kirk Knight touch gloves on this new collaboration, which they hope will give UFC Light Heavyweight Phil “Mr. Wonderful” Davis some pre-game motivation ahead of his bout with Anthony “Rumble” Johnson this Saturday. Let’s hope the Pro Era boys have better luck than Fashawn and Exile, huh?

I always find Gucci Mane and Young Thug projects hit-and-miss (I’m just being #honest), so I didn’t exactly rush to download their new Young Thugga Mane La Flare mixtape like the rest of the world. “OMG” was definitely one of the more, um, unique tracks on the tape, but it turns out what we heard wasn’t even complete. Today The FADER kindly brings us the final version of “OMG,” which pairs Thug’s extra-absurd rhymes with the slippery similes of IamSu! After all, the beat was co-produced by his HBK Gang homie P-Lo and C4.

After releasing his latest solo LP I Am in 2013, Yo Gotti shifts focus on the crop of artists he’s developing. Due later this year, the King of Memphis’ CMG Presents: Chapter 1 compilation mixtape will feature contributions from Yo Gotti, Snootie Wild, Zed Zilla, and Wave Chappelle. For our first preview, Gotti keeps it solo on the sample-based “Been Thru It All.”

R&B hopefuls will probably be jelly of a young musician named Boots aka Jordy Asher. Seemingly out of the blue, the young singer/producer/songwriter has unleashed a new Beyonce collaboration. The soulful love ballad features Boots crooning about L-O-V-E while Bey supports with her own sultry vocals. Late last year, Complex did a great job of unveiling some little known Boots facts. He actually worked heavily on Beyonce’s self-titled album and signed a deal with Roc Nation in 2013. Let us know what you think about the kid in the comments section.
