Back On The Bullshyt
2 Chainz Feat. Lil Wayne
As we await the arrival of 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne's promised collaborative project, the two have united on a new track from Chainz' surprise EP, Felt Like Cappin. The track expands on the chemistry the two have already established on tracks like "Rich As Fuck" and "I Do It," each coming through with punchline-driven raps, but Chainz plays things straight as far as flows go, while Weezy comes through with an auto-tuned slither, adding some melody to the mix. Meanwhile, the pounding instrumental comes courtesy of Cardo.
Nef The Pharaoh Feat. Mozzy
On his debut EP, released in November, Nef the Pharaoh linked up with producer Cardo for an excellent Michael Jackson tribute. The song ended up leading to a 10-track collaborative EP, Neffy Got Wings, which dropped yesterday.
Surrounded by so much talent, it’s forgivable if you forgot that TDE President Punch is a solid emcee in his own right. As he usually does, he dropped “Gone” overnight to little fanfare, but the track is definitely worthy of attention.
Nef The Pharaoh Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & Eric Bellinger
Nef The Pharaoh capped off a breakout 2015 with his Nef The Pharaoh EP, and he's got plans to keep that momentum alive in 2016 with an upcoming EP entirely produced by Cardo, Neffy Got Wings.
Nef The Pharaoh Feat. Philthy Rich
It's confirmed: Nef the Pharaoh is that dude right now, dropping one slapper after the other. He capped off 2015 with "No Masturbation," and he's now back with the Cardo-produced "#Saydaat." Nef showed up on Drake's IG a couple weeks ago with a caption that read "Say Daat," and now we know why.
Nef The Pharaoh
Vallejo sensation Nef the Pharaoh just dropped off his debut self-titled EP on E-40's Sick Wid It Records. The release included Nef's breakout hit, "Big Tymin," as well as the YG and Ty Dolla $ign remix. Each of the EP's 7 tracks is worth talking about, as Nef explores a wide variety of different sounds without sacrificing any of the project's cohesiveness or its pulsing energy.
City Shawn made his HNHH debut in August with "Keep Goin," and he's now back with another strong record, "Gawd Like," produced by the mean duo of Cardo and Vybe. The track is off Shawn's new album, Forever 2, which drops tomorrow (Oct. 30).
Just A Rider
We got snippets of 7 new songs from PartyNextDoor last night as he was the special guest on episode 7 of OVO Sound Radio. "Codeine Bumpin'" was an immediate favorite, though "Just a Rider" is a track that has more crossover appeal and has the potential to be a big hit for Party.
When I See Ya
Ty Dolla $ign Feat. Fetty Wap
Earlier today, Ty Dolla $ign gave his long-awaited debut album, Free TC, a release date of November 13, and to coincide with the announcement, he's dropped a brand new single, "When I See Ya," featuring Fetty Wap. The new track was just premiered by Ebro on Beats 1 radio.
Lil Uzi Vert
Lil Uzi Vert recently got a co-sign from trendsetter 40 Oz Van, so you know it's real. 40 Oz listed the rapper as one of the many underground artists he's listening to at the moment.
fR€$H aka SHORT DaWG
fR€$H, SHORT DaWG, Drank Sinatra, elvisfReShley-- the Houston rapper may not be decisive on a name, but he's definitely consistent in breezy, lean-induced rap he's been perfecting over the years. His latest project finds him linking with Wiz Khalifa collaborators Cardo and Sledgren for an entire project, and it's as beautiful as it sounds.
Sledgren & Cardo
Need a beat? Producers and frequent collaborators Sledgren and Cardo have cooked up beat in synth heaven for all the would-be rappers in need of something hot to rhyme over (although admittedly it is not available for free download).
King Louie Feat. PartyNextDoor
Out of nowhere, King Louie decided to surprise fans tonight and release the third installment in his Drilluminati mixtape series. Dubbed God Of Drill, the project contains 16 tracks and features from PartyNextDoor, Fetty Wap, Dreezy, and more.
Stay Down Till You Come Up
Metro Boomin, Childish Major, Don Cannon, Lyle Leduff & Cardo
Don Cannon just sent us a new instrumental for all you rising artists on the site fiending beats. The DJ and producer teamed up with few of the hottest producers right now, namely, Childish Major, Metro Boomin, Cardo and Lyle Leduff for "Stay Down Till You Come Up." It's a super-collaboration "just because we can," according to Don. No artists are featured on the over-six-minutes-long instrumental, but whom might you imagine hopping on this spacey, cloud-rap beat? Or are you feeling it so much you don't think it needs a feature? Let us know what you think.
fR€$H aka SHORT DaWG
fR€$H aka SHORT DaWG hit us with a huge track back in September, teaming with his frequent collaborator, Ab-Soul, as well as the increasingly impressive Mac Miller for the dark party record, "10 Pints". The Houston rapper returns today with yet another banger, grabbing a big instrumental from Cardo, who -- along with Sledgren -- will produce the entirety of his upcoming DRANK SiNATRA & The Scripts project.
White Girl (Remix)
Shy Glizzy Feat. Lil Durk
Shy Glizzy nabbed an appropriate counterpart for the remix of his "White Girl" record, Coke Boy himself Lil Durk. Durk is fresh off the release of his own single, "Jealous," and adds a little bit more energy to Shy's slurred-up flow on "White Girl." Cardo, of course, has to be given props for creating the smooth yet distinctly-Cardo beat.
Keep It G Pt II
Joey Fatts Feat. ASAP Rocky
Joey Fatts returned last night with Chipper Jones Vol. 3, a follow up to last year's Chipper Jones Vol. 2. Chipper Jones Vol. 3 recruits many familiar faces from Volume 2, including A$AP Rocky on the smooth Cardo-produced "Keep It G Pt II." Rocky appeared on "Choppa" on the last tape (alongside Danny Brown), while Vince Staples and A$ton Matthews also appeared on Vol.
Seen It All
Jeezy Feat. Jay Z
After announcing that his fifth studio album, Seen It All, would be dropping on September 2nd, Jeezy wastes little time in releasing the follow up to his first single "Me OK". Kicking the album campaign up a notch, Jeezy calls on his old friend & collaborator, Jay Z, for the album's title track "Seen It All".
It's Over With
Curren$y Feat. L.E.$.
Curren$y seems to have welcomed fellow dolla sign rapper Le$ into the close-knit Jet Life circle.
Curren$y has been steadily delivering new material since he dropped his pivotal Pilot Talk album in 2010. The yacht rock haze of that project has colored almost all of his material since, making him somewhat of an auteur of sepia-toned smoke jams. His newest effort, The Drive In Theatre is no exception, though he's since switched out Ski Beats for the equally lush work of Cardo, who provides the instrumental for "Fo" as well as a few other cuts from the tape.
