It’s been a minute since we last heard any solo material from Big Sean, but the Detroit spitter has returned in a big way today (no pun intended). In honor of his recent signing to Roc Nation and the release of his own signature pair of Adidas shoes, Sean Don decided to share four brand new songs to celebrate his hustle. These aren’t exactly your average fare either, as the tracks feature production from an eclectic group that includes Mike WiLL Made It, Kanye West, DJ Mustard, DJ Dahi, Key Wane, Nate Fox, Da Internz and L&F.
Sean is all over the map in this collection, as he draws influence from a number of various styles of hip-hop. From the far more serious “Paradise” and “4th Quarter” to the more playful “Jit/Juke” and “I Don’t Fuck With You,” the talented rapper stays steady with the punchlines, dropping plenty of quotables and keying us into some of the recent happenings of his life, namely the rumors surrounding his relationship with Ariana Grande.
Nod your head to the tracks below, and make sure to be on the lookout for any upcoming album announcements from the G.O.O.D. Music representative.
’Big Sean – Paradise (Ransom Intro) (Prod. MikeWillMadeIt)’
’Big Sean – I Don’t Fuck With You Feat E40(Prod. DJ Mustard / Kanye West /DJ Dahi)’
’Big Sean – Jit/Juke (Prod. Nate Fox/ Da Internz/ L&F)’
’Big Sean – 4th Quarter (Prod. Key Wane)’
VOICES IN MY HEAD ft. A$AP Ferg
Given the releases thus far, it is pretty safe to say that SBTRKT‘s upcoming album is going to be one of the best of the year. Each song has pushed genre boundaries in original ways and the A$AP Ferg-featuring “Voices In My Head” is, unsurprisingly, no exception. With an airy, yet ominous backdrop, Ferg diverges from his usual trapped-out style delivering a powerful, introspective verse with a versatile flow that adjusts to fit SBTRKT’s brooding, evolving instrumental. Wonder Where We Land is out on October 7th.
The Celestics ft. Waldo
You remember The Celestics right? The Canadian duo–consisting of super producer Kaytranada & rapper Louie P–burst onto the scene back in May with the release of their mixtape Supreme Laziness. Returning today with the first follow-up to their acclaimed project, the brothers from Montreal team up with Michigan native Waldo for “173.” This new cut finds the emcees spitting gruff yet emphatic rhymes over an ominous, hard-hitting instrumental. With Halloween edging closer than you think, this one makes for a good track to stash away to frighten all the other emcees out there with that with these guys are capable of. Grab the free download above and make sure to stay tuned for more from the pair in the coming months.
LA-based rapper Sahtyre first surfaced last April with his debut mixtape, LSD (Prelude), which featured electronic production largely courtesy ninja-favorites Hippie Sabotage accompanied by gritty, yet thoughtful, rhymes. After being relatively quite for the last few months, the talented emcee dropped off an an enormous new song a couple days ago.
“Prince Thunder” employs a haunting sample of Prince‘s “Thunder” in tandem with a heavy, hypnotizing backdrop. Sahtyre showcases his quick flow, and insightful lyricism, leaving the listener ready for another project, which we hope is on the way. This will do just fine, though, to hold us over in the meantime.
Drive Feat. Arama
The talented TOKiMONSTA never disappoints. The LA producer gives us a sneak peek of her up and coming album “Desiderium” this time around. This gem is titled “Drive”, a collaboration with singer Arama.
TOKiMONSTA incorporates smart and exciting electronic elements into this fast paced hip-hop beat, creating something so enjoyable to listen to that you can’t help but head bob and sway to it. The jumpy and detached piano synths in the beginning set the tone of this magical tune. Arama’s vocals match so well with the flow of the song, which is super fun and upbeat. The two-track harmonizing vocals are definitely what make this tune so special. It’s so good but short that it just leaves you wanting more.
Needless to say, we are extremely excited to see what TOKiMONSTA has up her sleeves. Make sure to grab a copy of her new album which comes out on 9/23. Or preorder it here.

Promiscuous (Dr. Fresch Remix)
With every passing release, it seems L.A. dance maestro Dr. Fresch peels back yet another refined layer of production psyche. The utterly talented dance constructor’s latest remix of Nelly Furtado & Timbaland’s 2006 top-40 hit “Promiscuous” is perhaps the Dr.’s most straightforward and to the point deep club track yet. We’re falling all over those hollow synths which bounce brilliantly off of Nelly & Timba’s playful vocal track, but after your first listen it’s apparent the tune’s focal point comes in the form of one of the most commanding bass lines we’ve had the pleasure of twerking to this year. About his latest remix Dr. Fresch stated: “It’s been way too long since I heard ‘Promiscuous’ played out in the club – I had to give the track a facelift so I could start dropping it in my sets and bring the heat back. The project clicked for me instantly, because of how the vocals lent themselves to be remixed from both a deep approach and a future approach as well. I’m excited to hear this one played out!” One of our most admired So-Cal house slingers certainly brought the heat on this one, as was intended, so we strongly advise you snag the free download here whether you’re one of our DJ friends looking to add a clever punch to your sets or just need it on your computers in general. But, since you’re already here stream Dr. Fresch’s remix of “Promiscuous” above.
