[NEW] Ab-Soul – Hunnid Stax (feat. ScHoolboy Q)

Hunnid Stax Ft. ScHoolboy Q

Ab-Souls long-anticipated sophomore album is set to drop in two weeks and, earlier today, the LA-based emcee unleashed a dope track featuring fellow Top Dawg Entertainment representative, Schoolboy Q“Hunnid Stax” opens with Soul stating, “people treat you real nice when you’ve got $50 draws on” before the menacing, hazy production of Kenny Beats takes a hold.

While the title suggests a stereotypical rap song about money, reminiscent of Odd Future’s recent skit, fans of Ab-Soul’s first album, Control System, will recognize the implied irony in his bars. ScHoolboy Q’s gritty vocals could not fit the beat better and Mac Miller contributes a brief chorus of sorts that helps add to the mischievous vibe. Enjoy this one above and keep an eye out for These Days…, which drops on June 24th.

[NEW] ScHoolboy Q – Yay Yay (Prod. Boi-1da)

ScHoolboy Q
Yay Yay (Prod. by Boi-1da)

Black Hippy‘s ScHoolboy Q is preparing to release his debut album with Interscope Records later this year and today we are blessed with what appears to be the first single. As we have come to expect from Q, he delivers with gritty rhymes regarding mature material in a way that is refreshingly ratchet. The thumping, disorienting producing of Boi-1da perfectly matches Q’s style making “Yay Yay” an absolute banger. We’ve already got one classic album from a Black Hippy member in Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid m.A.A.d. City, and ScHoolboy Q’s Oxymoron is looking to have what it takes to be yet another with a completely different sound. I can only really describe this song in the words of Q, “YAK! YAK! YAK!”

Kendrick Lamar continues to destroy the hip-hop game letting loose a lyrically powerful track with an old school feel featuring two of his fellow talented Black Hippy members, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock. “The Heart Pt. 3” is an introspective and emotional cut, on which Lamar and co. reminisce about their rise to fame. Kendrick exudes confidence even while admitting his own doubts and second-guessing as his voice becomes raspier and more expressive through out. Soul and Jay Rock hold their own on the track showing why they are two of the most underrated emcees out. Do yourself a favor and grab this awesome free treat below. Good Kid m.A.A.d. City hits stores Monday, October 22nd.

[Hip-Hop] Kendrick Lamar – Westside, Right On Time (ft. Young Jeezy)

Just as we predicted, the #TDEFamAppreciationWeek onslaught continues with a release from the Black Hippy captain, Kendrick Lamar. In an on-point collaboration choice, Lamar enlists trap-star Young Jeezy, who was recently promoted to Senior VP of A&R at Atlantic Records, to bring some of his street-cred and raspy vocals to the laid back instrumental. With his classic, yet incredibly original, style and flow Kendrick delivers yet another bright example of the power of hip-hop music. The Compton-bred emcee has given us more with just a few songs this summer than most artists have with their entire projects. His debut album, Good Kid mAAd City, which is set for an October 2nd release, has the potential to be an instant classic necessary for music lovers of all genres. Drop the top in your imaginary convertible and turn the stereo up for this taste of the sunny streets of Southern California.
