It’s been a minute since we last heard from college rapper Asher Roth, but the young spitter graces the interwebs to drop off a new track for our listening enjoyment. His new single, “Pot of Gold,” is a signature chill track that echoes the sound Roth has been experimenting with for the past few releases.

The laidback mood and wavy Blended Babies production fit well with Roth’s mellow flow. It seems as if he’s more on the serious side or may have just recorded this track after waking up with a vicious hangover from partying the night before. Irregardless, this track is a subtle listen. Be sure to stay on the lookout for his upcoming, long-delayed sophomore project RetroHash, dropping January 7th.

The Devil Is A Lie (Feat. Jay Z)

Despite whatever your feelings may be about Rick Ross and his MMG collective, you have to admit that he knows how to craft a hit, even if his recent efforts have fallen a bit short. Whenever Rozay and Hov team up though, we’re almost guaranteed a certified banger, and that’s exactly what we have with “The Devil Is A Lie.” This soulful trap joint features both emcees at their finest, with Ross deploying his verses with his usual swagger, and Jay Z adopting a flow that sounds eerily similar to Drake a la “Worst Behavior.”  The real winner here though is that instrumental from K.E. On The Track, and you can learn more about the process that went behind the track from the producer himself below.

‘Tis definitely the season for musical gifts. To most people’s surprise, Cleveland native Kid Cudi is back with a brand new track for our listening pleasure. As always, Cudi is not afraid of experimenting with his sound. He keeps the mood dark but interesting with a genre-crossing sound and melancholy vibe. Mixing together a blend of singing and rapping over trippy, atmospheric production, this track is reminiscent of his Man on the Moon flow. This is the first track off his upcoming EP, Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon, however no release date is confirmed yet. In the meantime, sit back and enjoy a journey through the otherworldly sound of the rager.

Pittsburgh emcee Mac Miller is preparing to release his newest album, Live From Space, tomorrow. Just as the title suggests, the project is a compilation of live renditions of tracks performed with The Internet during Mac’s Space Migration Tour, along with a few leftovers from the Watching Movies With The Sound Off recording process. Among those extras are these brand new cuts leaked earlier today. The first one, “Eggs Aisle,” features Mac spitting solo over a swirling, atmospheric instrumental, while the second includes a seemingly unnatural pairing with Future. Ditching his trademarked auto-tune, the Atlanta native steps out of his comfort zone and delivers a surprisingly competent verse on the laidback, jazzy single. Stream both tracks above, and make sure to grab yourself a copy of Live From Space when it drops tomorrow.

Latch (DJ Premier Remix)

The burst of music released over the holidays has commenced and, of all the tunes under the tree, Disclosure‘s upcoming Settle remix album has us especially excited. Today, after an impressive first glimpse, the UK-based electronic duo let loose the highly anticipated rework of “Latch” by legendary hip-hop producer DJ Premier. While the original is an addicting masterpiece in itself, Premier slows the tempo down and adds a D’Angelo-esque piano melody with steady percussion making for a new-age take on the classic R&B of the 90s. The Settle remix album drops December 17th.

The Holiday season is upon us, and in the spirit of giving Beyoncé has decided to drop a brand new album seemingly out of thin air. Titled Beyoncé: The Visual Album, the rather ambitious project features 14 tracks and 18 unique music videos. It’s difficult to determine what’s more remarkable here: the fact that Beyoncé can drop an album with virtually no promotion at all, or that she painstakingly took the time to shoot 18 individual music videos for all of these tracks without any details leaking out. This will certainly be an interesting experiment to keep our eyes on for sure, and we’d like to see what numbers Bey can pull off with her latest studio effort.

We’ve included some of our favorites here, but make sure to purchase the album on iTunes, which includes features from her husband Jay-Z, her daughter Blue Ivy, Drake and Frank Ocean. You can also catch previews for all her videos on YouTube.
