With his latest single, Hudson Mohawke brings a different style then what we’ve become accustomed to hearing from the highly acclaimed TNGHT collaborator. This new tune “Ryderz” uses a repeated, soulful sample in a beautiful hip-hop style beat that has a mellow, refreshing feel to it and even sounds like a J Dilla beat with the upbeat drums coming in and dropping out. This new song follows up his previous single “Very First Breath” and is track 3 off Hudmo’s second studio album Lantern, which will be released on June 14th via Warp Records. This version is a radio rip off Rinse FM so stay tuned for an official release with better quality. Enjoy!

The multitalented Chance The Rapper has recently been exploring his interest in film and has even started acting in short films. Now we get a “short film” music video for “Sunday Candy,” which will appear on Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment’s forthcoming album Surf. Filmed in the setting of what seems like a 1950’s musical set, The Social Experiment brings us the very entertaining visual interpretation of this excellent song in the form of a short musical as Chance shows off his dance moves. Chance tweeted "I'm revisiting my interest in film" so could expect to see more theatrical performances from him down the road.

The full version of Kendrick Lamar's verse on the remix of Kanye's "All Day" has surfaced, and it was exactly what we were hoping for. We previously posted a clip of this new verse and the full song has yet be released, but for now you can enjoy Kenrdrick’s full verse. We can only hope these two hip hop legends work together more often. Stay tuned for the full release, enjoy!
Update: This Kendrick verse seems to be recorded as a reference to demonstrate to Kanye how the lyrics should flow. Kendrick has writing credits on “All Day” so it would make sense for him to record a demo for Kanye to understand how it should sound

The highly anticipated collaboration between Chicago Hip Hop moguls Kanye West and Vic Mensa has finally seen the light of day. This new track “U Mad” was performed live by the two MCs previously and they actually premiered the finished studio track in Chicago during a DJ set. Produced by Vic's fellow SAVEMONEY member Smoko Ono, this song is surely Vic's biggest release yet. The two previously collaborated on Kanye’s “Wolves,” and this time it’s Vic’s turn to have a Kanye verse on his track.

Back in November we posted a video of Flying Lotus dropping a version of “Eyes Above” with a ferocious verse from Kendrick Lamar during one of Flylo's live sets, and now we get to hear a longer clip of the highly anticipated collaboration as it was premiered in Flying Lotus's special To Pimp A Butterfly edition of his radio show.
These two L.A. artists make magic happen whenever they team up, likd we've seen on “Never Catch Me” off FlyLo's You’re Dead and “Wesley’s Theory” off Kendrick's To Pimp A Buttlerfly. There is actually an entire mixtape worth of collaborative material between these two after Flylo sent Kendrick a folder of music for TPAB, and it looks like we are starting to see some of these all sta collaborations from these trendsetters. Enjoy!

A$AP Rocky continues to slowly release tracks from his upcoming studio album A.L.L.A. with no release date set yet. We've already heard "Multiply" and "Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2" and today we get the latest.
"M's" which just surfaced on an unknown soundcloud account seems to be the latest apparent leak from the forthcoming album. We hear some standard mellow yet trapped out production which is the perfect background for A$AP to deliver a hot chorus and verses. The fact this song has a "2 Chainz" sample leaves us wondering if 2 Chainz will make an appearance on this album, or if this is an unfinished cut of the track. Listen and share your thoughts below. Enjoy!
UPDATE: Rocky confirmed this is not a single, but just a fun song to enjoy. "M'S IS NOT A SINGLE. SHUT UP N HAVE FUN DAMNIT"
