Toronto to Dallas transplanted rapper Tory Lanez has been on quite the streak truly making his mark in 2014. Today we have the latest single from him "Mama Told Me" enlisting producer duties from fellow Canadian artist Ryan Hemsworth along with Tory himself and Play Picasso who paint a spacey chilled out instrumental to set the tone. Tory offers some of his signature flow blending rapping and singing for a combination that can't help remind me of youthful more edgy Drake. Listen below to the song and make sure to catch Tory as he is about to embark on his biggest tour yet, dates below. Enjoy!

Disclosure's "Latch" has become an international hit from the duo's grammy nominated album Settle. The song has been brought back to life time & time again by a multitude of artists, and now none other than world renowned rapper Schoolboy Q delivers a brand new remix to the song. The combination of his flowful verses over towards the end of the deep house anthem is suprising yet manges to come together nicely. It would be cool to see the artists actually get in the studio and create something that sounded more natural and organic. Hear the first listen below and look out for a release soon, details getting updated as they come in. Enjoy!

Watching Logic rise from a TSIS sponsored breakout mixtape Young Sinatra, to getting signed to the iconic Def Jam Records and selling out multiple shows has been pretty unreal to watch unfold. Over the past few months he's continued the flow of new music including collaborations with massive artists ranging from Big Sean and Childish Gambino amongst others. Logic recently announced that his debut album Under Pressure is set for an October 22nd release date, and today we get a sample of what we can expect to be his best compilation of work to date.
The album-titled single "Under Pressure" features incredible production filled with organic elements and some clever vocal sampling that is actually produced by Logic himself. He lays down some non-stop verses that solidify Logic as one of the most impressive lyricists in the game.
This song is actually the first piece of music that Logic has sold to date, after several free mixtapes and music videos. With that much free material, he has built a strong army of loyal fans (aka the Ratt Pack) and they have been coming out in droves to support this amazing artist. You can pick up your copy as it just went live in iTunes minutes ago. Enjoy!

Chilidsh Gambino aka Donald Glover out of nowhere just dropped the first single "Sober" from his upcoming Kauai Mixtape (artwork below). The rapper who has rose to one of the most exciting names in the every expanding hip-hop world never seems to dissappoint with this far out, extra trippy ballad. The light electronic grittiness and contrasting keys and light drums acts as a raw canvas that Gambino manages to light up with some singing that will have you humming along. It's a change of pace from what we can expect. Enjoy!

Say hello to an exciting new collection of producers out of the UK who are labeling themselves simply as The Code. Today we hear the first song from the group, a collaboration with breakout rapper G-Eazy on an unreal collaboration "Gravity". Featuring a minimal emotion filled production, the song contains distorted vocals from The Code before G-Eazy comes in and completely destroys the track with his verse. It captures a certain dark and cold vibe throughout that really sticks with you. It also has just the right amount of an electronic kick to make things interesting, yet not distracting from the singing and rapping. They are making this track a free download so listen below and pick up your copy. Enjoy!
