While the wait continues for their new project It’s All a Matter of Perspective (don’t sleep on last year’s Clockwork Indigo EP with The Underachievers, though), Flatbush Zombies resume their “Day of the Dead” series with this new freebie called “Half-Time.” Fellow New Yorker A$AP Twelvyy proves why he’s A$AP Mob’s most underrated spitter with the opening verse before giving way to Meechy Darko and Erick Arc Elliott, who also provided the twinkling boom bap backdrop.

Ab-Soul starts this Saturday off right with a set of new bars — 47 of them, in fact. “This verse was ghostwritten by Capital STEEZ,” he opens before showcasing his aggressive, abstract rhymes over an Alchemist beat. It looks like Solo released this track without TDE’s consent, which wouldn’t be his first conflict with the label.

logic big krit

Logic and Big K.R.I.T. both put out solid albums in what was an otherwise quiet year in 2014 with Under Pressure and Cadillactica, respectively. Today the Maryland and Mississippi natives join forces on this new song called “Top Ten,” which manages to capture the best elements of their respective sounds — Logic’s quick-tongued introspection and K.R.I.T.’s trunk-rattling intensity — into one powerful combination.

“If I wait on the label to support my vision I might go blind,” Krizzle spits, proving that the independent spirit is still alive — even for a couple of MCs on Def Jam.

wait heru

Brooklyn can be a brutally cold place this time of year, but it’s got nothing on Wati Heru’s new joint, “BKWYA.” Channeling the spirit of Gangsta Grillz-era Pharrell over a spine-chilling beat that sounds like a Hell Hath No Fury leftover, the East Flatbush MC cooks up a cooled-out BK anthem that’s less 1995 and more 2015.

Watch the video for “BKWYA” below and stay tuned for Wati Heru’s new project Dystopia FM, dropping March 13.

earthgang

Equal parts afrocentric and eccentric, EarthGang occupy their own lane entirely in Atlanta right now. Just take the title of the duo’s latest mixtape Torba, which is the number seven in Oromo, the language spoken by one of Ethiopia’s oldest (and “baddest”) ethnic groups. The seven also refers to the number of tracks on the project with each song named after a day in the week — which is the minimum time required to fully digest Johnny Venus and Doctur Dot’s abstract rhymes.

Torba is the follow-up to EarthGang’s 2013 mixtape Shallow Graves For Toys, and features contributions from Mac Miller, OG Maco, Childish Major and more.
