To follow up his previous collaboration with Soulection artist Ta-Ku, Jaden Smith is back at it with a fresh freestyle over Mr. Carmack’s “1994.” Young Jaden backs the Soulection label by shouting out their co-founder, Joe Kay, and has us thinking we should be hearing more collaborations between them down the road. The lyrics on this freestyle shows 17 year old Jaden knows what he’s doing as he delivers a steady flow over Carmack’s chilled out 90’s style hip hop beat with fresh slow keys and hard hitting drums.
“Soulection Freestyle" was released via Soulection’s channel on Apple Music and Carmack's website and can be streamed here.
Today we have a perfect lazy Sunday, feel good jam for your listening pleasure by Soulection’s Stwo. Ta-Ku recently enlisted the dreamy vocal talents of Alina Baraz on “Down For You," and now we see that she has the perfect voice to remix as Stwo takes on her collaborative track alongside Galimatias titled “Maybe” off their Urban Flora EP. This talented Soulection producer brings a sultry, atmospheric vibe that is a perfect rainy day tune as background rain and vinyl crackles set the mood for slow, melodic synths underneath some minimalist percussion and he even throws in a gong sample to round it out. Enjoy

The first Dr. Dre album is 16 years is almost here! Although it’s not the ever-hyped Detox, It’s his NWA-inspired album he’s decided to release ahead of the highly anticipated Straight Out of Compton NWA movie out on 8/14 with Dre's album is out on 8/7 and is titled Compton, The Soundtrack.
The last album Dre put out was the Chronic 2001, which was released in 1999, and now 8/7 will break Dre’s drought of album releases and will be released via iTunes music. He said he felt “so inspired by the movie that I started recording an album” and “the album is finished, it’s bananas." He also states the reason Detox has yet to see the light of day is because he "didn’t like it, it wasn’t good,” and says "I worked my ass off on it, I don't feel I did a good enough job and I couldnt do that to my fans.” The album includes features from Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Jill Scoll, BJ the Chicago Kid, and many more!

In an unexpected collaboration, The Knocks have teamed up with Powers and Fetty Wap, the man behind “Trap Queen,” which you all have inevitably gotten stuck in your head at some point or another. Fetty kicks off “Classic" with a rapping/singing verse showing off his knack for writing some of the catchiest hip hop out there right now. The Knocks bring a chill house meets nu-disco vibe with funky guitar riffs and bouncing melodic synths that set a perfect foundation for a Fetty verse and Power’s vocals to shine throughout. Enjoy!

To kick off the weekend, Kid Cudi has dropped a new track “Confused” off his forthcoming album Speeding Bullet to Heaven. He brings his WZRD rock style on a more introspective, moody vibe in which he said his album’s production will be entirely guitar and bass played by Cudder himself. This grunge-rock inspired track brings us a better glimpse of what he has in store for the upcoming album, and it sounds like we might be seeing more singing than rapping on this project.

Last month Kendrick Lamar brought a music video full of acrobatics and stunts for “Alright,” which is one of the hits off his recent album To Pimp A Butterfly and impressed us with the bold, cinematic visual interpretation of the song. Now he’s back at it, but this time he didn’t release a video for another hit, but for “For Free?,” the first interlude off the album catching everyone by surprise. The video is hilarious and works perfectly with frantic jazz breakdown of a beat as Kendrick wilds out like a straight crazy man running around a mansion appearing as Uncle Sam and ends with dozens of Kendricks hanging out in the front yard.
