Say hello to iSHi, a brand new producer in the game that we have very little information on. But this brand new producer just released his debut single which has a feature from Pusha T providing insanely fresh verses. The production is a bass fueled trap beat that sets the tone for the entire track and provides the perfect soundtrack for Pusha to drop some relentless verses throughout. The fact that iSHi has Pusha T featured on his debut single has us thinking this is some other major producer’s side project, or someone that has to be connected enough to pull that off. Either way, we are sold and expect big things to follow with iSHI. We are also treated to the tease of what looks like his new music video right at the end here. Listen below and watch the video. Enjoy!

Last year, the unbelievable producer 20syl, one member of French DJ group C2C, dropped off one of the most memorable remixes of the year with his bootleg spin on Rihanna’s “Stay”. His downtempo electro-soul twist on the track was begging for someone to rap over, and today I have for you exactly that. Nas co-signed rapper Fashawn has stepped up to the challenge completely re-imagining the song adding fresh new rap verses in between Rihanna's light vocals samples left intact. The chemistry of this song is through the roof, listen below and grab a free download. Enjoy!

Climbing Toronto / Austin rapper Tory Lanez has been on our radar for years now and has not been short on releases the past few months including songs "Diego" and "Mama Told Me" produced by Ryan Hemsworth. Today Tory has teamed up with London based production duo Snakehips for a very unexpected but incredible collaboration titled "Dímelo". Snakehips step out of the box on this one and lay down a synth-fueled, 808-heavy, hip-hop meets R&B beat which Tory proceeds to step up and destroy bouncing from singing and rapping seamlessly. The song was made in one night as part of the "Songs From Scratch & Yours Truly" campaign, which spawned tracks like the GoldLink x Chet Faker heater last year. Stream the full song below and we will keep you posted on a download. Enjoy
