It took a few minutes to pick my jaw off the ground after first listening through iconic rap heavyweight Jay-Z and Yung Jeezy's newest collaboration. The release "Seen It All" is a full bodied track with both Jeezy and HOVA spitting a fierce round of verses on top of a robust beat produced by Cardo. This heater had the makings of being featured on Jay-Z's best-selling album Magna Carta Holy Grail, but now will be listed on Jeezy's upcoming album dropping September 2nd. The potential to cause club and festival crowds to go wild when this is played live is quite strong. Enjoy

Chipotle Gang leader and break out producer Carnage has built up a strong reputation for delivering massive electro house / trap heaters that wreak havoc across the club and music festival scene across the world. Having left the world of creating "festival trap" music behind, Carnage has expanded his diversity with this new single "Bricks" featuring Atlanta rap group Migos on par for being one of the strongest releases of the summer. I had the opportunity to see Carnage play this live at Spring Awakening Music Festival this past weekend from on stage and the crowd literally lost their minds due to the big trap drums and wonky bass blasts laid out for Migos to go in with verse after verse. This release is available now on iTunes and you can turn up below with the complete track available for stream. Enjoy
