Kendrick Lamar Joins Past Collaborator Rapsody On New Song "Power"

Rapsody Kendrick Power

NC rapper Rapsody just released her second studio album, and the standout track features the legendary Kendrick Lamar and his TDE labelmate Lance Skiiiwalker. "Power" is the third time that Rapsody and K. Dot have collaborated; their most recent track together "Complexion (A Zulu Love)" off of To Pimp a Butterfly was a beautiful song about inclusion, featuring an impeccable verse from Rapsody.

9th Wonder provides a sample-heavy beat for the two MC's to spit verses over, while Lance Skiiwalker lays down an infectious chorus. Once Rapsody heard the beat, she knew she had to get Kendrick Lamar on the song and even though he was very busy working on Damn., he gave her one of the best feature verses we've heard from him recently. Rapsody's bars show that she shouldn't be overlooked in today's hip-hop world, and Kendrick Lamar once again proves he's one of the best technical rappers of all time.

Rapsody's album Laila's Wisdom also features Anderson Paak, Busta Rhymes, Terrance Martin, BJ the Chicago Kid, and more - we highly recommend checking out the whole project. Enjoy!

Talented Producer XXYYXX Returns From Multiple Year Hiatus With Chill Hip-Hop Track "I Dont"


After two years of silence, Orlando producer XXYYXX is back with a new single that shows a new side of him. The new song, "I Don't" featuring $K, is the first we've heard from him since his popular track "Red" from 2013, and is the first of two singles he'll be releasing this year. 

His usual minimal, downtempo sound that got him sampled by Chance the Rapper and SZA is replaced with stronger synths that stand out alongside effected vocal samples. The song features LA rapper $K, who provides verses and a bridge on top of XXYYXX's production. While it is a departure from his old sound, his talent and attention to detail make this a welcome change. 

Marcell Everett, who goes by the name XXYYXX, will be hitting the road for the rest of 2017 so make sure to catch him on tour if you can. Enjoy!

Hundred Waters Deliver Chill New Indie Album ‘Communicating’ Via OWSLA

Hundred Waters Communicating

Los Angeles-based trio Hundred Waters have just released their new album via Skrillex's OWSLA label, following the Currency EP they dropped just this May. Communicating, the group's third LP, includes previously released singles "Particles," "Fingers," and "Wave to Anchor," alongside eight brand-new tracks.

Hundred Waters' unique blend of electronic elements and organic, acoustic instruments sets them apart from their peers. This new album only builds upon that sound they have produced, which comes with a wave of melancholy over every beat and note. One minute lead singer Nicole Miglis' beautiful vocals will be hushed, restrained, and haunting, and the next she will open up with huge notes that show off her incredible vocal range. The impeccable production on this is expertly crafted, which really requires headphones to get the full effect of its intricacies. Enjoy!
