[Hip-Hop] Big K.R.I.T. – Now and Then feat. Slim Thug

Dropping some heat before his mixtape hits the webs later this month, Big K.R.I.T. blesses fans with some ear candy on “Now and Then”. This new, smooth UGK-esque track pairs the Mississippi rapper with Texas rapper Slim Thug and has the two flowing about the changes that life brings. Intricate rhymes coupled with an infectious beat make this cut off the SPKSMEN and The Smoking Section audio crack. Be sure to peep the free download below and cop the mixtape when it drops December 12th.

[Hip-Hop] DJ Scream – Cassette Deck ft. Rick Ross, Bun B & Slim Thug (Prod. Harry Fraud)

As he gears up to release his debut album later this year, the veteran DJ Scream released this gem today featuring a trio of southern representatives over production from the rapidly rising Harry Fraud. On “Cassette Deck,” everything, from the smooth, jazzy instrumental to verses from Rick Ross,  Underground King Bun B and southern mainstay Slim Thug, pays tribute to the legendary and deeply influential Pimp C. While references to the late, lean-sipping legend can at times come off as cheap and insincere, Scream recruits a prefect squad to create a genuine and tastefully done cut.

“Cassette Deck” literally screams trill ensuring we never forget Chad Butler’s legacy. Stream this single below and look out for DJ Scream’s album set to drop on November 20th on MMG/Warner Bros. Records.

[Trap/Hip-Hop] Flosstradamus – BANNED (Mix)

Last night, after being banned by the CPD from the Mad Decent Block Party in their hometown of Chicago, Flosstradamus dropped a 30-minute, groundbreaking monster of an electro-trap/hip-hop mix via their Twitter bringing us one step closer to the inevitable integration of the two styles. The Fool’s Gold duo incorporate a wide variety of the hardest hitting hip-hop tracks, from Juicy J‘s stripclub anthem “Bands a Make Her Dance” to Slim Thug’s classic verse from “Still Tippin” to Kanye West‘s “Mercy”(on which electro-trap producer Hudson Mohawke was actually credited with “additional instrumentation”), accompanied by the heaviest electronic sounds and percussion out.

Including some unreleased tracks from their upcoming album X☢ and drawing from a number of other notable producers in their niche, Flosstradamus has provided us with an unbelievable musical outline highlighting the collision course of these two genres. B⚠NNED, along with the recent release of the TNGHT EP and reemergence of artists like Juicy J and 2 Chainz, is just the beginning of a new brand of trap music that has the potential to be enormous. One of my favorite moments comes around the 22nd minute when they incorporate their “Pop That” remix to Major Lazer‘s “Original Don,” merging the dancehall-type vocals flawlessly with French Montana‘s anthem.

The first single from X☢ , “UNDERGR☢UND ANTHEM,” is due out on August 18th and the project is looking to be a milestone ushering in an exciting era for electronic music. This requires the highest volume and will likely induce raging upon pressing play. Shortly after releasing B⚠NNED the talented producers tweeted, “there’s something extra tight about giving out music this way.. directly to y’all from us. feels right.” Word up.
