“See the vest, when I sleep in the bed I leave it on. Sleep on the best? You sleepin’ on Sleep, you sleepin’. Who competin’? Who can take a peak into hell’s kitchen? WE EATIN’.”
Sleep, one half of II Man Cypher, comes out SWINGING on his latest single, Goon To A God. The founder of The Fraternity shows how deep his clique runs throughout the video by mobbing in an undisclosed location with the whole frat at his back. The Dope Antelope beat will have you screaming, “Oh lawd, oh God!” While being submerged in the Cincinnati Hip Hop scene, I have to say this is one of the best tracks I’ve heard come out of the 513 ever. Check out the video for “Goon To A God below”, and make sure you don’t sleep on Sleep or the rest of the fraternity.
YNO’s own, T. Wiz, releases the first single off of his upcoming mixtape, The Hustle Vol. 2. T. Wiz comes through on “2 Way” with a hyped flow over the Yon Li banger. YNO members hold down the hook while T Wiz murders both of his verses. If the rest of The Hustle 2 is anything like “2 Way” the YNO familia is bound to stir a ruckus in the midwest hip-hop scene. Check out the track below and be sure to download The Hustle Vol. 2 on August 3rd.
Radix and Johnny Polygon team up to give us the track, Astray, off of the Indian Giver EP. The toned back rap song has a reflective feel thats shows how Radix feels about the world. Check it out above.
SKE Records own, Petter Jones comes through with a hyped up track on “Paid.” The track, produced by Jupiter Zero, resembles how SKE must be feeling after having such a dominant summer. I spoke with label co-founder, Q The Question, recently and he told me to keep my eye out for Petter Jone’s new track. The track, and the video, lived up to the height. Check out the video below, and be sure to get hip to the SKE movement.
Just like every other rapper in the world, Juicy J dropped a dope “0-100″ freestyle. The melodic beat forces Juicy to take his usually hyped up, party type flow. Check out Juicy ride this beat above.
Young Thug came through today by placing the sequel to his mixtape “1017 Thug” up for stream. After promising that July would be Brick Squad’s month, Gucci Mane uploaded the tape to his Audiomack (Stream it here). With GuWop dropping Traphouse 4, and this Thugga tape dropping, Gucci’s words are holding true. Keep an eye out for what the Atlanta squad has coming up next. In the mean time, check out the audio for the opening track on “1017 Thug 2″ below.
This song is too much for a lot of people. However those with the ears for a hard hook and verses that aren’t meant to be taken seriously will love this track. Ice Cube is gearing up for his upcoming album Everythang’s Corrupt set to release later this year. If the artist combo in Drop Girl doesn’t make you hit play then I don’t know what will. RedFoo of LMFAO, Ice Cube of Are We There Yet, and The Hair Weave Killer himself, 2 Chainz, all drop verses on Drop Girl. Check it out above.
The Masked Menaces have done it again. Riot Ten and Jack Bass give us a remix of the Trap Lord’s Hood Pope. Ferg serenades us with the verses to Hood Pope that then turns to a building climb only to be relieved by Jack Bass and Riot Ten dropping the bass and turning up with a synth blasting bananza. Listen to the Hood Pope Remix above.
