Let Em Know
AD, RJ (OMMIO) & Skeme
AD teamed up with League of Starz for one of the most undeniable West Coast bangers of 2015, "Juice". He reunites with LoS' Sorry Jaynari, as well as fellow Californians DJ Nemo, RJ, and Skeme, for a ferocious blapper titled "Let Em Know". DJ Nemo is a DJ/producer who hails from the subtropical paradise of San Diego. Working with Sorry Jaynari, he lays a sinful piano line over that wobbly Cali bass, lay down an authoritative clap on 2 and 4, and let the LA triumvirate of AD, RJ, and Skeme go to work. Strength in numbers.
California (League Of Starz Remix)
Colonel Loud Feat. Iamsu! & AD
Colonel Loud's original "California" ironically featured a squad of Southern rappers. Last week's remix brought in Too Short and Snoop Dogg to give the track some legitimacy.
K Smith Feat. AD & Rich Rocka
It's been a minute since we last heard from K Smith. In fact, the last thing we received from the Philly rapper was back in July when he linked up with Boogz Boogetz for the joint project A Week In Toronto. Well looking to get back to the music and start 2016 on a much stronger note, K Smith decides to come through today and share his new song “Westside Niggas” featuring AD & Rich Rocka.
AD & Sorry Jaynari Feat. Iamsu!
Looking to build off the momentum made from his boisterous “Juice” banger, L.A. rapper, AD, decides to come through today and share his follow up single called “Way Up” featuring Iamsu, who ironically just dropped two new songs of his own today called “Game Time” & “Dogs.”
Beats 1 Freestyle (Prod. By Dr. Dre)
The latest episode of Dr. Dre's Beats 1 show The Pharmacy was one to remember. As promised, Dre delivered some unreleased music, sharing a collaboration with Marshia Ambrosius, as well as a brand new record from Anderson Paak.
Leswood Feat. AD
Time to meet a new rapper affiliated with RJ's OMMIO movement, which is affiliated with DJ Mustard's 10 Summers. We've heard Leswood once before, on RJ and Choice's joint mixtape, Rich Off Mackin, however today he makes his official HNHH debut with "Snap."
AD Feat. Ty Dolla $ign, The Game, OT Genesis, Iamsu! & K Camp
What a look for AD. "Juice" is the Compton up-and-comer's biggest hit yet, off his recent mixtape, Blue:89, and now he's gotten some of L.A.'s biggest stars to remix the street anthem. Ty Dolla $ign opens the stacked remix, showing that, despite his constant smoothness, he's still got cold-blooded bars. He's then followed by The Game, L.A.'s man in charge right now after releasing The Documentary 2 and 2.5.
My Flag / Da Homies
The Game Feat. Jay 305, Ty Dolla $ign, AD, Mitchy Slick, Joe Moses, RJ (OMMIO) & Skeme
The Game's Documentary 2 just hit iTunes at midnight, but at the same time, we received a gigantic crew track from the impending second half, The Documentary 2.5. The DJ Mustard record sounds like on of the deep cuts from one of the producer's own albums, with some of the L.A. underground's finest showing up, including Skeme, RJ, Joe Moses, Mitchy Slick, Jay 305, AD, as well as Ty Dolla $ign.
Big WY Feat. AD
Adrian Swish is getting ready to drop his compilation tape, On The Set: Crips & Bloods, and today he's shared the first release from the upcoming project. The track comes from Big WY, an OG Blood from L.A., most recently appearing on YG's "Bickin' Back Bein' Bool" remix alongside fellow vets like DJ Quik and Mack 10. Most notably, he was on the 1993 Bangin On Wax album, which saw Crips and Bloods uniting on record, which is what Swish is looking to accomplish with his new project.
G4 Boyz Feat. AD
G4 Boyz share their new single "No Time," and this time they go cross-country linking up with Compton rapper AD. Produced by Yung LAN, "No Time" is about a girl who's sleeping with fellas all over the country. But -- she's really a player, about the scrillions with no time for the D. But the Boyz have the wherewithal not to fall for her trap, or at least not let her get the best of them.
What Y'all Tryin To Get Into
AD Feat. YT Triz
Compton's own AD only just dropped off his Blue:89 mixtape a month ago, but he's already back with new music. This new track's called "What Y'all Tryin To Get Into," and it pairs him up with Florida native YT Triz over a Larry Jayy beat.
AD Feat. Skeme & Dave East
Compton rapper AD drops off another leak to get us hyped for his mixtape Blue: 89, which drops tomorrow. We've heard "I Go In", with Eric Bellinger, and "You Know What It Is", featuring Manolo Rose, Icewear Vezzo, and RJ, and his latest drop has some big-time features as well. On "Scream", AD enlists Inglewood's Skeme and Harlem's Dave East for his hardest banger yet.
You Know What It Is
AD Feat. Manolo Rose, Icewear Vezzo & RJ (OMMIO)
As we wait for AD's Blue:89, the Compton rapper has decided to give us "You Know What It Is", another leak from the upcoming tape. The song is truly a cross-county collab, as AD brings along Manolo Rose outta Brooklyn, Icewear Vezzo from Detroit, and L.A.'s RJ (of YG's Pushaz Ink). It's gangsta raps on gangsta raps over an icy minimal beat crafted by Larry Jayy, who's worked with DJ Mustard. If you like the new L.A. sound influenced by YG & Mustard, you'll get down to this new banger from AD & friends.
I Go In
AD Feat. Eric Bellinger
On April 13, AD will be returning with a new, Adrian Swish-hosted tape entitled Blue 89, and today we've gotten the first track from it. "I Go In" features Eric Bellinger and was produced by CBallin. Within seconds, you'll recognize that this sounds almost identical to Chris Brown's "Loyal," but luckily AD and Bellinger put enough of a personal spin on it to separate it from the 2014 hit. Let us know if you're feeling this one. Quotable Lyrics
AD Feat. Kevin McCall
Sometimes you have to slow it down for a song for the ladies, and sometimes, or even rarer occasions, you have to dedicate a song to just one specific woman. By the looks of the artwork for AD and Kevin McCall's "All Yours," the woman in question is very special indeed, so it's only right that the LA duo spend four minutes singing her praises. Over a beat produced by Pharomazan, McCall smoothly delivers a hook before AD hops on for a few verses. The instrumental begins with a very light keyboard before adding in funky synths and a busy, but effective, beat.
As a rapper from Compton, AD generally does a good job of pulling equally from classic G-Funk, and more current Mustard-esque production trends. "Thuggin" is no exception, operating in the same vein as much of YG's My Krazy Life, with C-Ballin providing the instrumental.Most importantly, AD keeps things relevant by including an "I'mma keep it G-Real" reference, which may be the first we've heard on a rap record outside of BeatKing's hilarious remix.
Following up Icewear Vezzo's A3C mixtape leak, "Been Ballin," we head to the opposite coast for AD's contribution to the tape "Side Talkin."
PIA (Pigs In America)
The shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri has led to an upswing in protests against police violence and harassment, but that type of behavior is nothing new for law enforcement in this country. AD recognizes this, and attempts to put today's outrage in historical context on his new track "PIA" (Pigs In America).
AD Feat. Tory Lanez
In just over an hour, AD is dropping his mixtape ComptonFornia 2, but before that, he's opted to share one last single featuring perennial HNHH favorite Tory Lanez. "Her" was produced by Jeremey Jay and is the fifth track on ComptonFornia 2.
AD Feat. Bad Lucc & Problem
The release of AD's upcoming ComptonFornia 2 mixtape is soon approaching, and the rapper continues to release west coast anthems leading up to its arrival. Today, we get one of the biggest records thus far, as AD teams up with one of the region's most consistent tag teams, Problem and Bad Lucc (best known for their inescapable ode to Young Bleed, "Like Whaaaaat").
