Logic - Alright (Feat. Big Sean) [Prod. by Tae Beast]

Logic is sparing no expense on his upcoming EP. He hit the internet today with his latest collab with Detroit's own Big Sean. This is the third release off of his While You Wait EP, following Now and While You Wait, due out this spring before his tour of the same name. The title track for the EP, which was just released and available here, was really directed towards his fans; while Alright is directed toward anyone that has ever fucked with him or has been on a song with him.

This Big Sean collab has been a long time coming and I'm glad Logic finally dropped the song with the Finally Famous artist. Logic's flow is impeccable and Big Sean lays some fire over the beat produced by TDE's own in-house producer Tae Beast. The song Alright is available to stream below and will soon be available for free on his upcoming EP.

Luke Christopher - Bedroom Trip

Luke Christopher is quickly proving to be one of the most consistently dope artists in the game right now. Every Tuesday for the last few months he's released a new track, which is obviously great, but what takes it to the next level is the quality of every track he's dropped. While many artists just drop freestyles or remixes to tide the fans over, Luke has been releasing amazing original tracks week after week, this kind of ability often just isn't found in other artists at Luke's level. 

On "Bedroom Trip" Luke not only drops some dope verses, but also does a fantastic job singing on the chorus, and produced the entire track himself, now that's talent. The young LA native seems to have perfected the R&B and hip-hop mix, and is equally adept at both sounds. This is a great track about love and relationships, and it's certainly worth a listen, and a free download if you need it in your library.

Mod Sun - Free Love [Official Music Video]

It's been quite an exciting couple of days for Mod. On 4/20 he released 'Ganja', a new stoner anthem with Chris Webby, and directed the video for Machine Gun Kelly's 'Sail'. It's so amazing to see Mod's vision for things come to life. MGK's 'Sail' video is very creative and so is this one. I highly recommend reading Mods book 'Did I Ever Wake Up?', you will have a new positive outlook on life and that is why I love what Mod stands for. I've seen him perform three times and each time he brings such positive energy to the stage. His album 'Hippy Hop' will be out soon, so be patient and get excited for it, he has a song with Travis Barker on the album!

OnCue - DSFM

Ladies and gentleman, the wait for Cuey's project, Angry Young Man, is almost over. Cuey gives us a new song titled 'DSFM', once you get to the chorus, you'll understand what DSFM stands for. I think we all want to drink and smoke and make a alot of fuckin money. He raps over Ratatat's 'Cherry' and I absolutely love it when people sample Ratatat beats. Cuey is most definitely an underrated rapper and a true lyricist, every song of his has so much soul and emotion poured in to it. As a fan of his, I know the waiting we've all been doing for AYM will pay off.

Nina Nesbitt - Nina Nesbitt [EP]

It's finally America's turn to get their hands on some music by the amazing Nina Nesbitt. Nina is a star in her homeland of Scotland, and is finally showing her talent to all of us in the States. After touring with Ed Sheeran and releasing tons of material, Nina is on her way to the top. This EP consists of both Nina and her fan's favorite tracks from her previous releases. This project truly has everything to offer, from up-beat tracks to ballads that will give you the chills. Be sure to buy the EP on iTunes; you'll be able to say you were there from the beginning when Nina makes it big. Her voice is truly out of this world, and I can't wait to see what she has in store for the future.

Machine Gun Kelly - Sail (Official Video)

First of all, happy 24th birthday to Machine Gun Kelly. It's crazy how at such a young age, he's able to make a huge impact on not only the rap genre, but on people's lives as well. Being the awesome person he is, on his own birthday, MGK decided to give his fans a gift. At first he dropped Sail without a video, but now we get the visuals to accompany the record, after the stream hit 300,000 plays. The song itself is gold, with a classic Machine Gun Kelly fast-paced flow and some amazing Mod Sun-directed visuals to go along with it. The beginning of the video is awesome, with a shot making it look like Kells just came off of the Chip Off The Block shoot. This song makes me wonder what he has in store for the next album. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Jez Dior - Old No. 7 (Feat. G-Eazy)

If you haven't listened to Jez Dior in a minute, you may have noticed his sound has changed just a bit. His previous work was an interesting blend of hip-hop, electro, and indie influences, but now he has decided to take his work in a whole new direction combining the grunge popularized by luminaries like Kurt Cobain and melding it with hip-hop, making a whole new genre he affectionately call's Grunge Rap. 

"Old No. 7" fits this new sound perfectly, as it starts off with a guitar solo, leading in to Jez's verse and then the hard-hitting chorus. To cap off this track Jezzy recruits G-Eazy to add his own fantastic verse to the track, with his flawless flow easing itself over the unconventional beat, produced by Danny Score. I actually really like this new track, and am intrigued by this completely new sound from Jez. Here's to Old No. 7, and being young. Enjoy the track below, and show Jez and G some love for a great collab.

Skizzy Mars - Make Sense (Official Music Video)

Just in time for Earth Day, Skizzy Mars drops off some visuals for his song "Make Sense", one of the strongest cuts from his incredible project Pace. The hazy visual filmed throughout the streets of New York, features Skizzy recycling liquor, which may sound weird now, but I promise by the end it will all Make Sense. Be sure to check out the video, and go support Skizzy by copping both "Make Sense" and "All Say" on iTunes, it's really the least we can do, especially since Pace is a better project than 99% of the music you'll ever pay for.
