Atlanta Rapper / Singer 6LACK Delivers 3 Impressive New Tracks Featuring BANKS And T-Pain

6lack banks t pain bonus tracks

Atlanta rapper / singer 6LACK amazed us last year with his impressive debut album, and today he has updated Free 6LACK with three brand-new tracks to celebrate its one-year anniversary. The new bonus songs appear at the end of the album, with features from female vocalist Banks and the legendary T-Pain.

The first of the three tracks, "Glock Six" fits perfectly with the mood set by the album with its dark melodies and sparse hip-hop instrumentation. He slows it down for the second one, "In Between" featuring Banks, choosing to sing the chorus together and alternating verses with her. The voices of the two work well together, and Banks especially sounds great with the layered auto-tuned vocals. We can only imagine how excited 6LACK was to work with the man who brought auto-tune into the mainstream on "One Way" featuring T-Pain, and it shows through the quality songwriting. He holds his own for the first half of the song with his impressive lyrics and vocals, and then T-Pain comes in and further cements his legendary status with his incredible singing and attention to detail.

6LACK recently announced that he will be taking a hiatus from touring to focus on being a father to his daughter that was born this year, and that he is working on new music. We can't wait to hear that, but until then we'll be revisiting the excellent Free 6LACK with these new songs. Enjoy!

Newcomer Rising Producer & Vocalist Yaeji Shares Impressive New EP Titled 'EP2'

Yaeji EP2

NYC-based artist Yaeji has been an exciting breakthrough artist to watch this year, and she just released her second EP of 2017. EP2 features five tracks that show her all-around talent in producing, songwriting, and singing.

The Korean musician has really come out of her shell in the past year, building on her lo-fi house music to create confident, pop tracks that put her vocals at the forefront instead of obscuring them in the beat. Standout track "Raingurl" features a mix of English and Korean vocals that culminate in an incredibly infectious hook over a hushed but danceable house beat. The final track on the EP is a rework of Drake's monster hit "Passionfruit" from earlier this year, that flips the upbeat dancehall beat of the original into a melancholy track with hushed auto-tuned vocals. It shows that she has an incredible ear and an ability to build upon others' sounds just as well as she can create them on her own. Enjoy!

Run The Jewels Link With Statik Selektah On Laidback New Track "Put Jewels On It"

Run The Jewels put jewels on it

Run The Jewels were on a hotstreak of album releases from 2014-2016 with their RTJ trilogy, but have taken 2017 to focus on touring together. We've gotten a couple singles from them this year from the FIFA 18 Soundtrack and the soundtrack for the film Baby Driver, and we've just heard a third from the TSIS favorite duo that will be featured on Statik Selektah's forthcoming album, 8.

The new song “Put Jewels on It” is something different from the group, because their production is usually handled by one-half of the duo, El-P. This track is produced by Boston beatmaker Statik Selektah, best known for his work with Joey Bada$$ and Freddie Gibbs. In place of El-P’s aggressive production, the beat takes a more mellow approach and allows Killer Mike and El-P’s rhymes to shine over a classic sounding hip-hop instrumental. 

Statik Selektah recently signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, and will be releasing his eighth studio album in December. Enjoy!
