YUNG RAPUNXEL PROD. BY LIL INTERNET
While her Twitter beef was somewhat entertaining, we’d much prefer Ms. Azealia Banks channel her anger through her music. Case in point, this new track called “Yung Rapunxel”. Off her highly-anticipated debut album, Broke With Expensive Taste, the electro-meets-hip-hop song is shrill, aggressive, and frankly more often than not, totally frightening. But let’s be honest here, did we expect anything less from this fierce New York emcee?
Hits Since 87, Inc Feat. Various Artist
Hit-Boy definitely had to call in a few favors to make this one possible. “Cypher” is a jam-packed collaboration between the past, present, and future of hip-hop. Just take a look at some of the names here. Along with HS87 crew members like Kent M$ney, Audio Push, and B Mac The Queen, we also have a slew of other talented emcees like ScHoolboy Q, Casey Veggies, Xzibit, Rick Ross, Method Mad, Redman, and Raekwon bombarding the mic. Each rapper take turns absolutely assaulting the beat, almost in the order of their birth. It’s definitely worth a few spins, just to make sure you don’t miss any brilliant bars between this collection of talented dudes. This track is set to be featured on the upcoming HS87 compilation album, All I’ve Ever Dreamed Of, dropping March 12th.
Major Lazer, the genre bending outfit lead by Diplo had set to release upcoming album, Free the Universe in February but then later postponed to a possibly April 15th release. However, that still hasn’t discouraged Diplo for giving the world another preview of what is to come. Joined by the wholesome vocals of Vampire Weekend’s Erza, BBC Radio 1′s Annie Mac premiered the hazy and reggae inspired track “Jessica” over the weekend.
Also, Vampire Weekend is set to release a new album later this year May 7 titled Modern Vampires of the City via XL Recordings.
Suit & Tie (Four Tet Remix)
Myspace is not the only thing Justin Timerlake wants to re-invent, his new album The 20/20 Experience will be out next week and already he has been getting a lot of attention from the indie blogosphere. However, unlike his efforts with Myspace, what has probably gotten the most attention, at least for us, is the caliber of producers that are now remixing his latest single ‘Suit & Tie’. Both Aeroplane and Dillon Francis have contributed their own rendition releasing previews this week and today we welcome a new addition. Four Tet takes the mainstream pop single into an opaque experimental environment where layers of drum and vocal samples are intertwined to become one.
