You know those groups that release a few amazing songs then blow up? HAERTS may be one of them. It's hard to believe "All The Days" is only their second song because there's such an immense presence on it. Make sure you keep the New York-based band on your radar. Apparently, they're already signed to Columbia Records. Stop by HAERTS SoundCloud to check out their first song "Wings," which was produced in collaboration with Jean-Philip Grobler (aka St. Lucia). While we wait for further information on the group, let us know your opinion of the single down below.
This Miami emcee has been on my radar for the longest and his previous project have shown great promise, but Ghoswridah‘s forthcoming Flu Game is lining up to be the defining project of his young career. In “Buckets” you can hear the hunger in his rhymes and the confidence in his voice, a great one-two combo that also benefits from a soulful instrumental produced by Don Cannon.
Both Tha Guyver & iLLeeT are the homies and they have great potential to break into the local scene in the next few years. If you need to be introduced to their music, “Yung Allah” is a great first listen. Tha Guyver still has to polish more his flow and the song could’ve used some better mixing, but the passion is heard and the talent is there.
You probably figured that rappers would leave Rocko's "U.O.E.N.O." alone after Black Hippy massacred it with their remix. Well, that didn't stop Trinidad Jame$ from taking his turn at the cut. So who do you think has the second best remix of the street single: Jame$, A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz, Usher, or Wiz Khalifa? Don't forget that the official remix is still on its way and will feature Rick Ross and others.
After giving us a preview of what’s to come with the single Noble Drew Ali, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire is back with “Fat Fool”, a new track produced by The Alchemist that will be featured in his upcoming project Kismet. Shane Annas shot and directed an accompanying video for the song and watch that below. Shouts to that dude rocking a Free Chief Keef tee.
I still can’t get over the fact that The Cool Kids separated, but the material the two are releasing as solo artists has helped get over the split and today Chuck Inglish put out a new EP to assist in the healing process. Droptops heavy hitting 808′s and verses by Asher Roth, Buddy, Dash and Retch, Jane Jupiter, Kashflow and Sulaiman. Stream and download below.

The Lotus F1 team has partnered up with Columbia Records in a deal that will promote the label’s music through the team’s official website and various track activities. The video above is comprised of six previously released video clips that have been used to tease the upcoming collaboration and features Daft Punk-themed drivers and race car. The 2013 Monaco Grand Prix begins at 8 a.m. EST on May 26.
Smoko Ono‘s work with Dally Auston and Jarred A.G. has cemented his place as one of my favorite up-and-coming producers, his beats are too crisp and truly unique. He recenlty linked up once again with his brother Jarred and to celebrate that Summer is just around the corner (although the weather today might have you thinking otherwise), the two have put out a new single entitled “Golden Noose”. I’m not sure where this joint will land but in the meantime you should definitely download his Luxury Tax EP, if you haven’t done so already.
While reportedly working on a new solo project, Fat Joe today decides to let loose a new offering, featuring the hook man himself, Future. The current autotune king takes care of the vocals throughout the piece, as Joey Crack then spits his bars in between. Will this end up anywhere? And what can we expect from Fat Joe's forthcoming work? You'll have to check back with us for more. But for now, enjoy "Long Time" below.
