Mondays blow, so what better way to start the week than with a fresh playlist of the newest in hip-hop and electro? Being the audiophile that I am, I’m usually listening to at least 4 albums at once: most of them being mixtapes from underground hip-hop and house artists alike. So instead of being stingy with my exceptional tastes in music, I’ve decided to share it with the rest of you! I know, you should feel lucky.
So with that being said, here lies the birth of Music Mondays!
This first edition will feature a few of my picks from the last week and half, and is just a way to keep you abreast of all the newcomers in today’s ever-changing music scene. I hope you guys like — and remember, if you have any feedback or music requests requests, they are highly recommended!!! How else am I supposed to know if I’m doing a good job?
The newest edition to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group, Stalley, former Jet Life member, is here to bring us his ambitious new project, Savage Journey To The American Dream. Honestly, I have not heard a more solid debut project in….ever. This is a truly inspirational tape, as Stalley goes into detail about what it means to find the American Dream. I am always a fan of theme albums, and the production on this one makes it extremely easy to listen to. This one is at the top of my music pics for the week.
Action Bronson is the newest thing out of Flushing, Queens, and the former chef-turned-rapper has plenty of NY flare as he spits mechanically over 16 acapella beats. A visual cross between Rick Ross and Machine Gun Kelly, Action Bronsolino is quickly becoming one of my favorite up-and-coming emcees in the game.
After the recent death of his daughter, Ace Hood has decided to recommit to the rapping game, and is coming harder than ever. His new free mixtape, Starvation, features the Florida-emcee debuting a new, more polished sound, as he goes in over higher production beats, using new flows to match. This one doesn’t quite deliver like The Statement 2, or Body Bags, but it is still a step up for Ace in my opinion.
Newest and Youngest member of the Jets Dynasty, Young Roddy shows up with his debut release, Good Sense. I have always been a fan of Young Roddy, and I love the face that Curren$y signs artists due to their lyrical ability and despite their voice. Listen out for cameos from both Curren$y and Trademark, as Roddy blesses us with his Good Sense.
No house this time, but I am currently scouring the interwebz for new tunes now. See you next week….
