Genesis The 8th - ADIDAS (ft. Sunny Bornfree)

In this dope song and video Genesis The 8th and Sunny Bornfree make fun of the mainstream for their love and obsession over Jordan's with this ode to Adidas. This track is featured on Genesis The 8th's new mixtape, An Inconvenient Booth that was released at the start of this month and can be downloaded for free here. Genesis is one of the more underrated artists that we hear from the West Coast and in particular, California. I highly recommend downloading the whole project if you enjoy this track, you won't be disappointed. Gotta throw in that I honestly prefer Adidas items to Nike brand items.

AMJ - d(-_-)b [Cypher]

AMJ is an artist we posted a long time ago and we haven't posted him anytime recently but maintained a good relationship and he has continue to submit us music. It has paid off because today I bring you his dope minute long cypher. Adam's flow has come a long way since he first started and it can only continue to improve. Look out for a new project, Red, White & True coming out in May.

Chris Spain - Dreams Money Can Buy [Official Music Video]

I have been meaning to post this track and video for a minute now. Chris Spain is a talent lyricist and all around artist hailing from Columbus, Ohio. This track is dope as well as deep and has a nice video to go with it. I'm excited to see what else Chris Spain can put out in the future. You can be sure that we will support it here on COM, until then enjoy more of his music via his SoundCloud.

Sango x GoldLink - Wassup

Wow, now this is what we call a banger. Sango's beat is absolutely bananas on this one with a flute, courtesy of a dope sample from Timbaland and Magoo's 'Indian Flute', and the chorus from Michel Cleis' 'La Mezcla (Ft. Toto Lamompozina)', to go with a hard bassline that makes this perfect for the turn-up.

The other half of this track, GoldLink, absolutely bodies his verses, and has amassed quite a buzz throughout the blogosphere due to his outstanding last project 'The God Complex', which came out earlier this month. These two are both ones to look out for in the near future, and should only continue there ascent with this transcendent track.

If you're in the Washington DC area this weekend you can catch both at the Broccoli City Festival, which also features Cam'ron, Dizzy Wright, and Just Blaze amongst others, so that should be super dope. Make sure to show both of these guys some major love below!

Asher Roth - Last of the Flohicans (Ft. Major Myjah) [Prod. Blended Babies]

With less than a week now before Asher drops RetroHash (on the 22nd) he decides to drop off another single, which should solidify that this is an album you definitely have to check out. With a upbeat beat carried by a hard-driving guitar, we get a whole new vibe from Asher on this one, but he handles it deftly with his unique flow, and lyrical prowess. The chorus on this one is really well done as well, by Major Myjah and the whole track has a rock kind of vibe to it due to the production skills of the talented Blended Babies.

Asher is at his typical deep storytelling best with his wordplay, and the whole track comes together incredibly well, I'm intrigued by this new sound and can't wait for the album. The title of the track is obviously a play on the popular 1990's film last of the Mohicans, which is also what inspired the cover-art for this one. Just more great stuff from one of the most consistently dope MC's out there.

OnCue - Closer (prod. ARW)

We have all been waiting patiently for OnCue's upcoming project Angry Young Men (AYM) which will be released later this year. Cuey is nothing short of excellent on this track. OnCue has one been of my personal favorite artists for some time now and I cannot wait for AYM. This will help to hold us over until we have the project. Also be sure to grab his latest project, Leftovers 2, for free.

Logic - While You Wait & Tour Tickets on Sale

Logic took everyone by surprise last week with the announcements of not only a new While You Wait EP from the Maryland artist, but also an upcoming tour of the same name. No one was expecting this because Logic has been talking about his debut album and waited to mention anything about this EP.

After hearing the trap sound from Now released last week, I couldn't wait to hear his newest release. Being the title track, I expected a lot from While You Wait. I've listened to A LOT of music in my life, and title tracks never hold a candle to the rest of the album/mixtape/EP/LP. Logic stays true to himself and made the title track a sort of introduction to what the EP really meant. While You Wait is a song that I can see really laying the ground work for the rest of the EP, shout out to Swiff D on the beat for this heater! Something that stands out about While You Wait is the way that Logic really connects with the true fans on this song.

Speaking of the While You Wait Tour, tickets went on sale today at noon and some tickets are still available as well as VIP. Grab your tickets to see Logic, C Dot Castro, QuESt, various other VMG and Rattpack members at a concert close to your town!
