Another week has come and gone, and here we are staring pure, unadulterated freedom right in it’s beautiful face. We know you probably have a few more hours of work left, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start jamming out.

Logic Ft. Big Sean
Alright (Prod. By Tae Beast)
While Logic has amassed a pretty large following over the last few years, he still hasn’t had that breakthrough hit to propel himself into the mainstream conversation just yet. However, this new single with Big Sean could finally be just the push that he needs. “Alright” is way more than just that, as the Def Jam signee spits a few mind numbing verses alongside the poised G.O.O.D. Music representative. The two emcees have somewhat contrasting styles, yet both sound comfortable over the mellow Tae Beast produced instrumental. With his EP While You Wait on the horizon, it seems only a matter of time before the Maryland native becomes a household name. Stream the single above, and stay tuned for more from the talented lyricist as we head towards summer.
Xscape ft A$AP Twelvyy
After plenty of rumors and speculation, NYC crew A$AP Mob finally drop some new heat from their latest collaborative project. Putting the anticipation to rest, the latest track “Xscape” serves as more of an introductory track to the relatively unknown A$AP Twelvyy. From guest features on mixtapes and a few freestyles, Twelvyy drops some aggressive solo bars over the Tay Soprano-produced beat. Spitting on his rough upbringing in Harlem, NY and his ambition to make it big, this auto-biographical track is a tough intro to what is to come from the young emcee. Take a listen and be sure to cop their upcoming effort L.O.R.D. LP, dropping later this year.
Old No. 7 (featuring G-Eazy) (prod. By Danny Score)
Last time we heard from Jez Dior, he left us with the question, “Who Drank My Whiskey?” Thankfully, it seems as if the LA native has recovered his favorite beverage of choice, and has decided to pour a glass of that “Old No. 7,” while subsequently pouring his soul out over another angst ridden, guitar driven instrumental. Channeling his inner rockstar once more, this new single finds the rapper on shaky ground, taking a big gulp of that liquid courage as he delves into topics ranging from alcoholism and recreational drug use, to the rocky relationship he shares with his father. G-Eazy chips in with a supreme verse to discuss some of his own youthful mishaps, while the pair finally decide to reach out to the last two people they can rely on once they hit the bottom of their spiral: their parents. While the material is rather dark, some hope can still be heard in the chorus, and we’d like to believe there’s a story of redemption following all of this.
Stream the spectacular single above before grabbing a copy for yourself from iTunes. There’s still no word on a release date for Jezzy’s next project, but we’re praying we won’t have to wait long to hear more grunge inspired tunes from the crafty artist.
FREQUENCY F/ Carl (Prod. Jay Retro)
While we typically reserve songs this soulful for Sundays, we couldn’t help but share this latest single from Jarred A.G. with you all today. Veering from the typical grungy, streetwise anthems we’ve grown accustomed to, the hardened emcee gives us a glimpse of his sensitive side on this smooth Jay Retro produced cut. Featuring a guest verse from Carl (of Hurt Everybody), “Frequency” is exactly the type of mellow track you’d want to tune into during an afternoon break, just as you’ve wrapped up lunch and begin contemplating your plans for the evening. It also proves once again, that Jarred is not one to be slept on, and if you’re like us, you’ll have replayed his verse at least a few times by the end of the day (his singing voice isn’t half bad either).
Stream the single above, and look out for more details on Jarred’s CANVAS LP, set to drop later this year.
Lykke Li ft. ASAP Rocky
No Rest For The Wicked (Remix)
Subscribers to Beats Music were treated to a pleasant surprise earlier today, when Lykke Li decided to stream the remix of her single, “No Rest For The Wicked,” exclusively through the audio service. This is the internet though, and nothing stays exclusive for very long. Within hours, fans who previously felt left out, could now hear the glorious pairing that is A$AP Rocky and Lykke Li. For Rocky, it’s the latest in a string of heart-stirring pop collaborations that already includes previous team ups with Gesaffelstein, Jessie Ware and Florence Welch. By adding a little street flair to the already astonishing single, the Harlem native makes the song more accessible to a wider audience, without hurting its overall message.
Check out the stream above, and make sure to pre-order Lykke Li’s upcoming album, I Never Learn, before it hits shelves stateside on May 6th.
TDE is slowly making moves to take over the game in 2014. Following the drop of SZA‘s debut LP Z, lyricist Ab-Soul is up next to take the ranks. The West Coast emcee drops a new track for fans listening enjoyment over the weekend. The Curtiss King-produced joint, “Tree of Life,” finds the young emcee spitting some smooth bars over a chill beat about those good herbs. Just in time for 4/20, this new tune doesn’t exactly show off Soul’s lyrical prowess on the mic, but it still makes for a dope listen.
