Rich Homie Quan
Tell Me Why (Feat. Drake)
When Birdman first recruited Rich Homie Quan & Young Thug to be a part of Rich Gang, it seemed like a natural fit as Quan and Thugger were already two of the more prominent rising faces at the forefront of the ATL rap scene. Now, the group has plans for a sequel to their successful mixtape, Tha Tour Part 1. Though we have no concrete release date for the project, it seems as if most–if not all–the tracks have now surfaced online. Featuring guest spots from Drake, Fabolous, Ty Dolla $ign and Dej Loaf, the star studded follow-up seems poised to build upon where the last left off. Regardless of where the tracks are from, this should be enough to power you through your New Year’s Celebrations. Check out the Drizzy assisted single above, and stream the rest of the tracks after the jump. Continue reading
Don't Give A F#Ck (Single Version)
Well this is quite the enticing single.
LA artist BETS has recently released her single ‘Don’t Give A F#ck’, a corky Indie song that tells a lovely tale of love and the fact that everyone knows you shouldn’t fall in love because everything is down hill from there. With a mix of soft electronic melodies, BETS soft yet stimulating vocals have a certain air about them. BETS takes the listener on an almost whimsical music journey where she informs you quite honestly that she doesn’t give a f#ck about this boy and love but we all know, and she knows, that she really does indeed give a f#ck. While fairly new to the music scene, BETS has already got us very excited for her upcoming album ‘Days Hours Nights’.
A Fine Way To Die Ft. Orlando Napier
After a year of craziness, GRiZ is back with a new original single ‘A Fine Way To Die’ featuring the vocals of Orlando Napier. A whole year to make one song you say? Don’t be quick to judge that, this isn’t any song, and let’s not forget he was working as half of Grizmatik for the past year. This song took a lot of blood, sweat, and well, GRiZ. Between recording horn lines, drums, writing guitar lines, and recording the most killin’ vocals, you can see why this jamming jazzy piece took a little love and a lot of funk. Following in GRiZ fashion, this single is electric, with a mix of electronic melodies, horns for days, and base that carries the upbeat and slow beats through out the whole song. GRiZ is one young music fiend and we always look forward to this young man with an old music soul taking us all the way to the blues and back again. His new album drops this spring and we cannot wait for what is sure to be a magical music experience.
You might be stopping and asking yourself, “did I just read that correctly? Is The Music Ninja posting a news item?” You’re correct in your second-guessing, as we rarely post anything but music, interviews, or show reviews. However, this new music platform is something that we believe strongly in. You may have caught wind that one of our co-founders has a new site on the horizon, which is entirely true.

Getting released on a label is always a big thing for an up-and-coming artist. Being the first artist supported by a brand new label is huge too. However, getting full support from an absolute legend like DJ Shadow on his brand new label is a whole different animal.
Dropping on the newly formed Liquid Amber, Bleep Bloop is getting an approving nod from turntablist DJ Shadow on his brand new label. The EP, aptly named 10 Watt Lazers, features three bass-heavy, lazer-inspired tunes, all of which are expertly produced. Kicking things off is the title track, which is a cosmic, ear-splitting, grin-inducing single from this Northern Cali basshead. It certainly delivers on multiple levels, but we’re admittedly more drawn to the second track, “Denial.”
With some heavy 808s, glitchy synths, and a classic trap-style vocal sample, “Denial” is one that’s sure to play nicely on the dancefloor, in your car, or in a nice set of cans. Just make sure you don’t blow your speaks, as any of these three bass-laden monsters are likely to do.
Pick these up for free ninety nine on Liquid Amber’s soundcloud, and throw them a follow while you’re at it.
