Top Dawg Entertainment has a roster of very talented artists including Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Isaiah Rashad, SZA, and Ab-Soul. After multiple years of staying quiet, TDE’s Jay Rock released his album 90059 earlier this year, and one of the best songs off the album just received a major upgrade by none other than Kendrick Lamar.
The beat switch for the second half of “Easy Bake” is possibly the best part of Jay Rock’s album with SZA offering sexy singing over a slick instrumental track complimented by Rock’s on-pont verses. Now Kendrick joins his label mates for a remix titled “Traffic Jam,” and it’s just what the song needed. Kendrick always delivers, and this new verse is no different as he goes in the the incredibly smooth beat making this track one that you’ll need to listen to more than once. Enjoy!

Toronto based rapper Omar LinX is no stranger to TSIS. It’s been quite a long time since we started following the MC who first caught our eye teaming with bass duo Zeds Dead on unforgettable collaborations like "Out For Blood," "Jackie Boy," "Cowboy" and "Crank", or more recently “Dosey Doe.”
Now after dropping an impressive album M.O.R (Music or Revenge) last year, he has continued to build his name as a solo artist and even came off a recent unexpected collaboration with rising EDM mystery man Marshmello on “Keep It Mello” we premiered last month.
Now Omar is back with the latest chapter on an original titled “Back To You” produced by fellow rising Toronto based artist and TSIS regular Hunter Siegel and in addition go to producer Pro Logic. This latest single features an ominous bass line layered with trap elements and catchy vocal chops as Omar lays down his signature bone chilling verses. Listen to the premiere below out via Buygore. Enjoy

It’s no doubt that Chancellor Bennett, aka Chance the Rapper, has become the face of the rising Chicago hip hop scene. Now we get the first released collaboration between Chance and his younger brother Taylor Bennett, who is also a rapper.
Off Taylor's forthcoming project, “Broad Shoulders” showcases the talents of the Bennett brothers as they offer their singing/ rapping style alongside each other. This Somber track brings a mellow instrumental characterized by a laid back piano melody. This follows up Chance’s recent, strong single “Angels,” and has us stoked for more material from him. Stay tuned for Taylor’s upcoming album and enjoy the stream below.

A$AP Rocky and Tyler, The Creator just went on an unexpected collaborative co-headline tour with a run of high energy shows all across the country. The tour’s first leg ended in San Francisco at the iconic Bill Graham Event Center with a very special show.
During the show Rocky decided to pay tribute to Tyler and played out the instrumental to one of his most notorious songs “Yonkers” and freestyle over it. It sounds great, and it's a perfect way to end the run. Watch the video below. Enjoy!
