[G-House] Lil Wayne & Kanye West – Lollipop (1DAFUL ‘G-House’ Remix)

First off, I may be alone here, but I REALLY miss Tha Carter III era Weezy. With that being said, 1DAFUL returns with a another gigantic remix with one of the first and most popular singles off of that great Lil’ Wayne album, “Lollipop.” Juggling a G-House and trap hybrid, these Canadians are continuing their trend of dancefloor ace in the holes with gut wrenching bass, shifty and buzzing synths, and a deep groove you can unashamedly shake your booty to. Hip-hop and house are coming closer together every day with these types of remixes, and it’s been a fun experience to see what producers like 1DAFUL have under their sleeves next.

[Hip-Hop] BMB Spacekid – FBGM (feat. GoldLink)

Following a top-notch release with Falcons last week,  GoldLink keeps the quality music coming, collaborating with yet another unique producer in St. Petersburg’s BMB SpacekidDiverging slightly from the future bounce beats GoldLink often accompanies, the Russian producer creates a silky smooth, dynamic instrumental. Even over a different backdrop, GL maintains his hard-hitting delivery, albeit slightly slowed down, and raw style of lyricism during his appearance. At about the 1:30 mark, BMB’s production takes over as he slows the tempo giving a chopped and screwed vibe. Give this jam a spin above–you can grab the single on iTunes now.

[NEW] Snakehips & Tory Lanez – Dímelo

Corporate involvement in music often comes under scrutiny, but Adidas Originals’ partnership with Yours Truly for the #SongsFromScratch series has been one of the most important recent endeavors in music. Uniting artists who typically wouldn’t collaborate, the program has churned out some of the most prolific creations in recent memory. The latest entry in the series is an international affair, as we find Canadian extraordinaire Tory Lanez striking up a partnership with the UK’s Snakehips for “Dímelo.”

“Dímelo” is a perfect blending of both Tory’s and Snakehips’ individual styles. “Dímelo” shares much of the whimsical charm of a typical Snakehips production but with an added hip-hop flare. Tory on the other hand abandons his grittier, more lo-fi sound in favor of something a bit more upbeat, though his swagger remains tightly intact.

Listen to the tune above and make sure to watch the process that went behind the single at the official Songs From Scratch website. Also feel free to check out our recent interview with Tory Lanez as well.

[Hip-Hop] Heems – Home (ft. Dev Hynes)

NYC emcee, Heems, formerly of Das Racist, is preparing to drop his solo album next month and, if the releases thus far are any indication, it promises to be a great one. Earlier this morning, Heems dropped off one of the the most anticipated collaborations from the project, with Dev Hynes, of Blood Orange. “Home” proves a mellow, yet heart-wrenching, track with a gorgeous instrumental to match Heems’s unique delivery recounting a lost relationship. It’s an interesting contrast with the last single, the more upbeat “Sometimes,” allowing the talented emcees versatility to shine alongside Hynes’s phenomenal production. Give this one a listen above–Eat Pray Thug is due out on March 10th and can be pre-ordered via iTunes now.

[Hip-Hop] GoldLink & Falcons – Vroom

After a meteoric rise in 2014 and co-sign from Rick Rubin, D.C. artist GoldLink is poised for stardom and, today, we get his first release of the year, a phenomenal collaboration with LA-based producer Falcons. On “Vroom,” Falcons crafts a silky smooth instrumental that fits perfectly into Link’s self-described “future bounce” style allowing the innovative emcee to navigate lyrically in only ways he knows how. A Missy Elliott vocal sample serves as a pleasant surprise blending in perfectly perhaps because, in some ways, this song mirrors the bounce on the classic Missy beats crafted by Timbaland. “Vroom” proves a testament to GL’s originality, which has allowed him to be arguably the most successful artist yet in combining dance music with hip-hop. After an official announcement on VSCO of his partnership with Rick Rubin, we could not be more excited for what 2015 has in store for GoldLink. In the meantime, this uniquely infectious jam will be in heavy rotation–listen for yourself and grab a free download above.
