Linus Young - Sister

I am super late on this post, but figured I'd share anyway. Linus Young is one of the most unique, artistic duo's I have ever listened to. Their sound is consistent, but they always find a way to make their music unpredictable and so enjoyable. This record is perfect to listen to if you appreciate good music and want to get away from the world for a little bit. With such deep and true lyrics, Linus Young has impressed me with every release so far. I can only hope that their album will be released soon, but for now, check out this masterpiece.

Felly - All Gon' Be Straight

A few days ago we gave you the preview of this track, and today we have the full version. Felly has always been one of my favorite rappers because of his incredible talent, which this record showcases perfectly. Though Fel didn't produce the song himself (DRO on the production), the instrumental is a classic laid back, chill beat that you would've thought Felly made himself. The hook is infectious and for some reason, the verses remind me of ScHoolboy Q. I have no idea why or how they remind me of Q, but I hear it in there. Check out the record and check back on May 4th to hear the entire Waking Up To Sirens EP!

Chromeo - Jealous (Dillon Francis Remix)

Earlier this week Dillon Francis decided to take Chromeo's hit track 'Jealous (I ain't with it)', and remix it in to something completely his own. As you may know we don't usually do EDM here at COM (or at least I don't), but every once in a while there's something that is just too dope not to post. 

I've always loved the original Chromeo version of this song, but Dillon Francis' progressive house take on this track breathes totally new life into it, and makes it an almost ideal party track, and one that will have you rocking no matter when you listen to it. Chromeo's vocals are golden, and are only complemented by Dillon's impressive production. This one should help you enjoy your Thursday that much more, and have you looking forward to the weekend.

Tayyib Ali - Cashin Out (Prod. Ante)

With only three days before Keyston3 it is officially almost Ali season. Tayyib Ali is an artist that seems to be perpetually underrated, but continues to show why he's so dope. This track is a perfect example of why he's one of the best young spitters out there, as his smooth flow is complemented well by the Ante produced beat, leading in to an extremely catchy chorus. 

Keyston3 is sure to be one of the better projects to come out in the few months since the start of 2014. Tayyib and his team are poised to take over the game, and this is just the start, so get hip now, and you'll be able to say you got in on the ground-floor when Tayyib's up in the penthouse.

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!
