Tyler Keyes & M.i, and I can officially say that it has exceeded all of my expectations. Not that they were small, because I actually expected this to be fantastic tape, but it turned out to be absolutely unreal. Every single track is spectacular, and I know I say this about a lot of mixtapes, but I really can't find a single track that is not enjoyable. First off, the production from Tyler is just perfect, and then the way that M.i spits is truly unparalleled. This project should get these guys the attention that they deserve. I couldn't pick out any favorite tracks, so I included a DatPiff stream of all the tracks for you to check out. After you do that, do yourself a favor and download this project. Enjoy.

To be completely honest with you, I'm still on the fence with D-Why. I'm not sure what it is, but I really just can't make up my mind on whether or not I like his sound. Anyway, FaZe Clan is the newest track off his upcoming EP, Young, Loved, Hated & Broke, and it's actually pushing me more towards becoming a fan, so definitely check it out above. Enjoy.

Gilbere Forte, PRAY, and it is every bit as dope as I had hoped. Over the last year and a half, Gilbere has been working hard on this one, and you can really tell that when you listen to it because each track is filled a ton of thought and emotion. I really don't want to try and talk this one up anymore, because I know it can speak for itself, so check it out below. Enjoy.
Scarlett Sage, Jez Dior's upcoming debut album is going to be fantastic. With his first two singles, Candles and Love Me To Death, as well as this latest track, Jez has an built an unreal groundwork for it. And since this is only his third release, he's clearly an artist who lives by one of my favorite phrases: "quality over quantity". Be on the lookout for Scarlett Sage (which hopefully drops soon), and enjoy this one.
Hoodie Allen and Kina Grannis premiered this joint live on FUSE, and from the second I pressed play, I was hooked. There's just something magical about the way that Kina's vocals work with Hoodie's fantastic flow. That being said, I started to wait anxiously for Hoodie to release the full studio version, and now the day has arrived. Do yourself a favor and check this one out.

Gilbere Forte. Clearly you can tell from this post that I figured "Hey, why the hell not?". Anyway, check it out below, and lookout for PRAY tomorrow.
I'll be straight with you on this: there's honestly nothing special about this video. I'm just using it as an excuse to listen to Life Long again, and bring attention to the fact that Rockie's tape Electric Highway is still sick. Enjoy.
Marc Goone's track Yung Khaleesi back in October, I can honestly say that I've been anxiously waiting for him to release a new project, and here it is. Now I said it back when Yung Khaleesi dropped, but I'll say it again: If you've been a fan of Marc Goone for as long as I've been, you can truly hear the growth in his sound. Over the years (yes, it's been over 2 years since I first heard his tracks), Marc has really redefined himself, and has come a long way since Blackout. Don't get me wrong, it's always great to look back and see where you've come from, but you also have to look at where you're at now, and then where you want to be. Marc Goone has developed his catchy rhymes into meaningful and smart lyrics, and then has matured his flow into raging river, all while maintaining that originality that makes him a truly great artist. I Am Not A Lobster OK is a compilation of all the tracks he's released since Yung Khaleesi, so 10 gems in total. But anyway, I'll let you check out the tape below. It is available for free, but if you want to help a brother out, you should definitely cop it on iTunes (plus you get 2 bonus tracks). Enjoy.

Prepare yourself for yet another perfect track to add to your summer playlist. Sammy Adams grabs Mike Posner, and together they have created a fantastic feel good track that you just can't help but enjoy. Plus it has a cool video to go along with it. Enjoy.

Big Z, but here's his latest, a remix of Ye and GLC's track Heavy Hitters. Now I enjoyed the original version of this track, but to be honest, it always felt like it was missing something. Big Z manages to add that something. He's created a fantastic beat that works just perfectly with the vocals. A fantastic track, so enjoy it.
A simple but effective video from ANTHM for his gem of a track, Be Still, off his EP, Joy & Pain. I'll say it again that I still think ANTHM is extremely underrated. With his fantastic lyrical ability and flow, I believe that he should get a lot more attention than what he gets now. But, like I said, I say that every single time I post one of his tracks, so I'm just going to let this gorgeous track speak for itself. Check it out, and if you don't have it, go cop Joy & Pain.
