Listen To Vince Staples New 'Big Fish Theory' Album Ft. Kendrick Lamar, Flume & More

Big Fish Theory

Vince Staples has just released his sophomore album Big Fish Theory and further demonstrates his consistency and versatility. The album includes previously released singles "BagBak," "Big Fish," and "Rain Come Down."

While the album is only 35 minutes long, he is able to fit in tons of hooks, verses, and collaborators to make a tight, concise project. Features on the album include Kendrick Lamar, Flume, Kučka, Damon Albarn (of Gorillaz), Ty Dolla $ign, and many more. The album is much more dance-heavy than his debut, and Vince really shows that he can rap over anything. The prominent basslines take the forefront of many of the beats, backed by heavy synths and production unlike any other hip-hop album this year.

Album standout "Yeah Right" features technical verses from Kendrick Lamar and Vince Staples over a wild beat made by Flume & SOPHIE, that sounds more like "Wall Fuck" than anything else Flume has done recently. Kučka brings the track together with a bridge about authenticity before Kendrick's dizzying verse that will immediately have you hitting repeat to hear all of his flow switches and rhyming patterns. We highly recommend the album from start to finish and will have this on repeat all summer. Enjoy!

Shlohmo Drops Must-Hear New 'For Tha Summer Vol. XXVII' Mix With Incredible Hip-Hop remixes

Shlohmo Future Migos

Shlohmo has just released a new mixtape featuring 7 unreleased hip-hop remixes, entitled For Tha Summer (vol. XXVII). The tape puts his signature spin on massively popular tracks, which he calls "big heat wave lounge style music."

The founder of WEDIDIT Collective is no stranger to flipping hip-hop bangers into slowed-down, melancholy tracks with a completely different vibe. For his new tape, he expands upon this style by creating a 25-minute mix blending immediately recognizable tracks with soul samples and drum kits. Shlohmo added the following description to his perfect summer soundtrack:

"Put it on the big screen at the BBQ. put it on the radio while you driving with tacos on your lap. put it on ur phone while u sleepin under that tree. big heat wave lounge style with a plate + a red cup in hand. this ones 4 tha summer." - Shlohmo

In addition to putting it on SoundCloud, Shlohmo uploaded this to his YouTube channel with accompanying visuals. The video follows the established WEDIDIT aesthetic, mixing the tracks' music videos with lo-fi stock footage and dark images. Check out the tracklist and stream below. Enjoy!

Knxwledge Drops New 'Wt.PRT.11' Mixtape Remixing N.E.R.D., Action Bronson & More: Hip-Hop

Knxwledge Press Shot

LA hip-hop producer Knwxledge has just released the newest installment of his WT.PRT. series, adding another project to the 80+ releases he already has out on Bandcamp. Between NxWorries, his collaborative project with Anderson .Paak, and producing for some of the biggest names in hip-hop (Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Earl Sweatshirt), it's hard to believe he has time to continually put out quality releases. 

Wt.PRT.11 follows the mold of the first ten entries of the series, turning down the tempo of hip-hop tracks to put lo-fi 90's rap beats against the recognizable voices. Over the nine tracks, you can hear remixes of songs by N.E.R.D. (feat. Kanye West), Action Bronson, Jim Jones, Meek Mill, and more. Knxwledge marries his laidback beats with the strong verses he selects to match them, and one listen will make you want to hear him produce for your favorite rapper. With his strong work ethic and output, we can't wait to see where else he brings his talents in 2017. Enjoy!
