It has been awhile since we heard anything new from J. Cole, and to tide over his fans he just let loose a 5 track free release. Truly Yours EP features some great songs that didn’t make the cut for his upcoming album which he says is his best work yet. Despite not being on the album, they are still just as great, and way better then most the free tracks artists rappers put out. As he says “Vibe out to these songs in their raw form, no polish.. just a lot of my soul”. His wordplay and lyricism is incredible as expected. If these are the songs that didn’t make the cut, I can’t wait to here the album, which Cole said we will get to here the first single from later this week! Enjoy.

We first posted The Underachievers with their definitive single “Herb Shuttles” and have just followed it up with another smoke induced video for “The Mahdi”. The lyricism and overall flow of this duo is insane, paired over a dope beat and it’s a chilled out hit. It shows the New York group on the other side of the country. This is a off the groups’ upcoming mixtape Idigoism coming out February 1st. Enjoy!

Here’s a talented face we have featured enough of on TSIS, Action Bronson. Here is the latest mixtape from Queens based rapper, Rare Chandliers. This 13 track project features so many solid songs it could be an album. He captures a old school raw hip-hop vibe with a new school twist that I can’t get enough of. The whole project was produced by the legendary hip-hop producer Alchemist and he delivers nothing but smooth, insanely dope productions. We tried to pick out a few of our favorites, but it was so hard. Download the whole project, write below what your favorite track is. Enjoy!

Kid Cudi has been working on his latest full length album Indicud which is slated for a release this fall. We get this first sample, “King Wizard”, a track produced by Cudi himself. It’s an incredibly mellow chilled out vibe to it. Is this the new direction from Cudi? What do you think? Enjoy!

Here’s a new artist we’ve never featured on the site, Jez Dior, a Los Angeles local who makes some real dope hip-hop. As he describes it “I Make Music That Has Feelings”, and that it does. Here’s my favorite I’ve heard yet “Candles” complete with music video. The indie / folk sampled beat works so well with his voice. You can tell someone’s good when you instantly replay a video after watching, check him enjoy!

J. Cole lets loose a new track “I’m A Fool” produced by himself, and it’s pretty dope. It’s got some cool vocals samples mixed with real solid drums. J. Cole spits some solid lines throughout. It’s hard to not like a new J. Cole track. Also included is his track “The Cure” talking about some real topics concerning the hip-hop game, and his “Cure”. It’s easily one of my favorite J. Cole tracks to date, enjoy both of these!
