A-Villa's Closed Sessions' debut has been a long time in the making, but the final product's November 4th release date is nearly here. Featuring the verses of hip hop greats from all over the map, producer A-Villa scores one hell of an album. Villa pleases the hip hop gods once again with "Live From The Villa" featuring Action Bronson, Roc Marciano, and Willie the Kid.
Freddie Gibbs and Madlib made a splash this summer with the critically acclaimed "Pinata" LP and they aren't quite finished yet. This week the duo has announced a follow up called "The Knicks" EP. The EP drops November 18th, but get the first couple tracks right now! Up top is the remix to "Knicks" which was originally featured on "Pinata", and after the jump you'll find the BJ The Chicago Kid assisted "Home"
After the news we received earlier, it's no surprise that Chief Keef is releasing music at the rate he has been. Not sure what to expect from him next (besides the four mixtapes he has scheduled), but I'll certainly enjoy watching and listening to it unfold.
If this new single from YP and Doc doesn't get you thinkin, you might have a problem. On the heels of the "Backwood Jones" release, YP doesn't think twice about getting back in the kitchen with The GrindHouse's Doc Da Mindbenda. No new project annouced, just YP getting some stuff off his chest.
Chief Keef gets dropped from Interscope and Mac Miller signs a ten million dollar deal with Warner Brothers. Who's team would you rather be on? Mac has been on his indie game for a while riding the Rostram wave and eventually forming his own label, Remember. Miller and his imprint have made their way to Warner for a reported ten million and released some new music to celebrate. You can get today's drop "Just Some Raps..." if you want, but I'm more focused on this Thelonious produced track that surfaced the other day. "Her" was recorded for Thelo's upcoming "Wünderkid" project, but it's apparently not making the final cut. Good news is that Thelonious decided to release the song anyway and assures fans that there is another Thelo x Mac joint that will be featured on the project.
The LOD's Black Matt just got back from touring with Black and Rich Jones around the United States on the "Best Mexican Food" tour. I'm not sure what the final consensus was in regard to the Mexican food, but Matt wastes no time getting back to the basics, getting faded and getting paid. Sounds like a good schedule to have.
